Yes I do admire a guy that stays the course. He's the President he needs to act like one. I don't expect him to surrender. I don't think the troops want to hear him talking about defeat.

I think the writing is pretty much on the wall...

In about 20 years, the USA will have a far lower living standard, China will rule the world, and we'll be trying to learn Mandarin.

I think everyone should be questioning what this mission really is. It certainly isn't to prevent terrorism because more and more terrorists are being created everyday. It's not to liberate the Iraqi people either.

It's impossible to be defeated in a mission that has no purpose and no point.

I think Bush's primary mission is to bankrupt the USA and he's doing a pretty good job of that! Of course, he did that to almost every company he managed so why should this management job be any different!

I think the Iraqi's think they are being liberated because they are. Did you read all the good things that are going on in Iraq? I think Kimbercuddles posted them on a different thread. The military believe in their mission and I wish the media would pick up more of what they have to say. Whether we are in Iraq or not these terrorist do breed on a daily basis.

by M. Dobbs-Higginson; a world traveler and CEO for Merrill Lynch/Asia pacific- to the above poster, who mentioned China, you could be correct. Visiting Honolulu, one sees businesses thriving; workers even at ABC stores take pride in their work; keep their shops clean.

Not to go O/T but Bush and his cronies have duped the American people, it seems- we are worried about fixing Iraq and the Asian countries are WAY ahead. The economy is thriving in Hawaii. Guess I should start making plans to move again.

Americans have thrown their values and morals out the window...it's not Bush's fault that many parents don't teach their children to respect and be kind to people...much less any work eithic whatsoever. How can our country thrive when the backbone of America is our children who want everything given to them on a silver platter? Pride in one's job is something that is seen rarely, if ever. People blame the schools for our children not being able to pass simple exams...where are the parents? If they are able to read, maybe they should take the time to help their children understand. My parents gladly answered questions that I had when I was in school...it was their pleasure.

People may say that it's all Bush's fault...that's to be expected with our liberal-slanted media. Remember, though, that there ARE extreme improvements in Iraq that have ocurred within the last couple of years. Things that normally we would never hear about. Now that Saddam is finally gone, many Iraqui's don't have to be afraid that he will one day be in power, once again. I believe a lot of Iraqui's believed that America abandoned them in the gulf war. They've lived in fear that Saddam would come back and terrorize them worse than before. Just my opinion.

The reason I ask this is because about a month ago I went online to find out more about the Louisiana representatives and had an extremely difficult time even finding out WHO was running, much less what their top priorities are, etc. It makes me wonder if the majority of people are just voting on hearsay, media reports or what their friends and family say. There was a poll not to long ago in which people on the street were asked if they knew who the Secretary of State, Vice President, Speaker of the House, etc., were and if I remember correctly, less than HALF of the people questioned responded correctly!!!!!! I don't know about you, but that scares me!

Prior to the election I did some posts to ask people to cast a vote with the personalities removed from the issues.... Oddly people voted for Ron Paul.
I did it on many topics and it was interesting to see what people thought.
It isnt that they are always uninformed but sometimes choose not to see a candidate for what they are. Most want to jump to a party affiliation vs looking at what they say and believe.
