    If you recall, Bush sent troops into war, then all over the media declared that they're already in harm's way, and not to support them is unpatriotic. Confusing "them" with his war agenda. Brilliant move, and it worked perfectly.

    Do you really believe Congress would have voted to invade Iraq if they had not been lied to about Saddam having WMD and would use them against the U.S.

    NATO did not even believe that and that is why they refused to join in on the war.

    Saddam tried to kill my daddy and I have to defend his honor

    First of all do you think that Bush made that up? It was info that came from the intelligence community and is pretty well documented. Secondly you proclaim that Bush is the dumbest president we ever had but then go on to say he bamboozled all of congress
