    Bush? I heard many of my co-workers say, "he started the War in Iraq, let him finish it." In other words, why should/how could Kerry clean it up? It makes no sense to me that we think the people who screwed something up would be better at fixing it, but I guess they think those folks have the knowledge and responsibility to fix the errors of their ways.

    I guess a lot of people would argue Bush did the right thing, surge, sign-off to get troops out. Maybe they have a point. However, if you go this route, there will be no accountability for the initial bad acts, that's pretty clear, and that distresses me greatly.
