What do you think?
Thank you to President Obama for fulfilling another campaign promise.
I know it did my heart good to see the images of our combat forces leaving Iraq last night. Of course, the images were soon accompanied by a host of other descriptors such as "yellowcake", no WMD, "I'm the decider", and, again, the haunting spectres of Abu Ghraib. 73% of Americans were for this war at its inception. Will they turn their backs on these fighting men and women as they did with Vietnam veterans? I'm asking because those who stood to gain the most from the war in Iraq certainly did nothing to ensure their return home would be supported when they went about the business of decimating an economy, pension plans, health care, the housing market, and monies for education.
You're not going to be able to keep your responsibilities for the bloodshed at arms length for much longer. The Bush tax cuts are going away, and it's an election year.
