whose Thanksgiving dinner tables would still be fully seated. Instead, every single one of those families faces an empty chair. Forever.

War dead from the Iraq War that NEVER would have happened.

One of the last things the Clinton administration did for bush/cheney was to advise them about how critical an issue terrorism was going to be. And they turned up their noses at those urgings. Because - eeuwww! Democrats! They’re the OUTGOING. Who needs to listen to THEM anymore? And besides, Sore Loserman. Sucks to be them. Or as cheney himself had the gall to say, “the adults are back in charge.”

And those “adults” left wreckage, ruin, sky-high unemployment, a devastating recession, an increase in poverty, screwed-over workers, war crimes, and a destabilized Middle East behind as they were walking out the door (unpunished and NEVER having been held to account for the damage they did).
