1. I like the michael moore talking point Train wreck trump has brought up a few times....

He said,"Bush didn't keep america safe in preventing 911". It's great when he trashed Dubya, it scratched an itch of mine nobody in the republican party would ever bring up. I'm not sure the republican electorate likes it, but they seem to like train wreck trumps warts and all.

3. And don't forget that Hillary Clinton was helping Bush sell the war. She lied about Hussein's

 

threat of WMD and his harboring al qaeda.

14. I am shocked. Shocked that anyone can buy that load of crap.

 

First of all she gave a speech to the Senate explaining the need to invade (the exact same speech Bush gave). There was zero evidence to back her (Bush's) claims of WMD and harboring al qaeda.

Secondly, it she thought she was voting to restrain Bush and it turns out it didn't, she must have been a fool. And why oh why didn't she and the other DINO's that were duped by Bush, have a shit fit when they found out they were fooled. Answer because they all got kick-backs from the MIC.

Bottom line is that either she wanted to invade along with Bush or she was duped by Bush, neither is a quality I want in a president.

Does she hold it against Bush to this date that he fooled her? Nope, she is fine with it because she went along with him and Cheney.

18. Anyone who was paying any attention back then

 

understood fully that they were voting to authorize Bush to declare war. Somehow, a lot of people in Congress willingly deluded themselves on this.

7. Or you can just challenge them to "prove it."

Then you can point out facts such as above. However, do bear in mind that "facts don't matter" and that "facts have a Liberal bias" so it may be a futile effort to prove them wrong.

8. The truth is so easy, isn't it?

Great poster to print out and hang where I can see it every day for the rest of my life. Like on the fridge. When dinner guests come to your kitchen, it will the first thing their eyes go to. Print off some extra copies of it and place them in the recipe drawer, cause many of your guests will ask for a copy.

Thanks kpete!

17. More than 2,400 dead as Obama’s drone campaign marks five years

 



Five years ago, on January 23 2009, a CIA drone flattened a house in Pakistan’s tribal regions. It was the third day of Barack Obama’s presidency, and this was the new commander-in-chief’s first covert drone strike.
...
But reports of civilian casualties began to emerge. As later reports revealed, the strike was far from a success. At least nine civilians died, most of them from one family. There was one survivor, 14-year-old Fahim Qureshi, but with horrific injuries including shrapnel wounds in his stomach, a fractured skull and a lost eye, he was as much a victim as his dead relatives.
...
Yet despite this disastrous start the Obama administration markedly stepped up the use of drones. Since Obama’s inauguration in 2009, the CIA has launched 330 strikes on Pakistan – his predecessor, President George Bush, conducted 51 strikes in four years. And in Yemen, Obama has opened a new front in the secret drone war.
...

Maybe just use one hand to pat on the back, for being so much better than THEM...

19. Dubya led America into 9-11 with his incompetence as he ignored

national security and the threat of terrorism.

25. And the GOP has been trying to blame Democrats for all of it for 30 yrs.

 

And the most gullible "progressives" have been happy to do the GOP a heaping big favor by believing it.

27. They think of this as safety.

 

Really. I know this is hard for a sane person to comprehend. The Tea Party types think being involved in continuous conflict, always bombing people, and getting our military personnel killed makes us safe.
