If you really know 'what they(?) found in Syria' why don't you just tell us? And, who is 'they'?

Blame it on the Bush

Five 'ill get you ten two things are for certain. The Democratic Party shall never amount to any more than they are...in the pits, with their Blame Game, and those who still act as if they were the last, and only, slaves in the world are destined to be no better off than they are until they move on from the past.

The Senate had the same intelligence that Bush had. These Democratic Senators voted in favor of the war. YEAs — 77 Bayh (D-IN) Biden (D-DE) Breaux (D-LA) Cantwell (D-WA) Carnahan (D-MO) Carper (D-DE) Cleland (D-GA) Clinton (D-NY) Daschle (D-SD) Dodd (D-CT) Dorgan (D-ND) Edwards (D-NC) Feinstein (D-CA) Harkin (D-IA) Hollings (D-SC) Johnson (D-SD) Kerry (D-MA) Kohl (D-WI) Landrieu (D-LA) Lieberman (D-CT) Lincoln (D-AR) Miller (D-GA) Nelson (D-FL) Nelson (D-NE) Reid (D-NV) Rockefeller (D-WV) Schumer (D-NY) Torricelli (D-NJ)

I know you feel everything is Bush's fault.

Would you like me to list BHO's mistakes over the past 6 years? Sleep well tonight. The world is a much safer place since BHO has been at the helm.

Your Facts

It was eleven years ago. There are many questions about WMDs. Lastly, most Senate democrats, including your precious Billary, voted for it. Not sure about Obama, since he rarely takes a stand on anything.

History correction

The great leaders in the house and senate saw the same intelligence as the president before they voted to start the war.

I think that included Barack

I think that included Barak Obama.
