    I think your tin foil hat is a little too tight. It must be cutting off circulation to your brain if you really think that he was willing to sacrifice thousands of American lives in an attack in our country just to get rid of Saddam. Please tell me that your question was not serious. PLEASE. I would really hate to think that you would actually believe something so pathetic.

    You don't really believe that Bush allowed 3000 civilians to die so he could start a war where 4000+ soldiers have died?

    Exactly Duck. But why does a non-related tragedy somehow get used to persuade otherwise opposed populace (and congress) into condoning a war?
    If we knew at the time Saddam had nothing to do with 9-11, isn't that sort of unethical to use an emotionally charged tragedy to promote one's agenda?

    Now we're coming back around to the original point.... discussing, not arguing, if you please.

I enjoy a lively "discussion", but if the logic and structure fall to pieces, and names and insults start flying, there's little point in continuing.
    Now that's funny. I don't care who you are.

    Since August 2011 hasn't even happened yet, I have to consider this post null and void......

    A nice rhetorical; argument, but completely meaningless with respect to what happened. The mortgages that caused the failures were issued long after Clinton left office (2002-2005) and were underwritten by commercial instruments unrelated to FNMA. Even in 2006, Bush was taking credit for the massive expansion in our "ownership society" that happened on his watch.
