And neither did we. We sat idle and did NOTHING when he gassed the Kurds twenty years ago. It's rather ironic that people like you use it as a battle cry today though.

No, lying equals lying. He was told that the intel "Was not to be trusted" (ie "Curveball") but ran with it anyway. As we know now, it turned out to be a big fat lie.

Hogwash. Show me where Congress declared war. Congress never declared war. Congress voted to give Bush the authority to declare war as a LAST RESORT after all forms of diplomacy had been exhausted. Bush took that trust, then kicked the inspectors out and went to war. Many members specifically said on the day of that vote, how much they hoped Bush would use all forms of diplomacy and that they handed their complete and utter trust over to this POS who lied and went into Iraq with guns blazing.

To the crowd members who did that chant,..."no class". Was a similar chant given when President Clinton left office? Was a similiar chant given when President Carter left office? Was a similiar chant given when President HW Bush left office? Carter left office with the country in worse financial times and even worse foreign policy matters and even he wasn't so insulted.

Yes, Dave.
Cheney supporters stood in front of the Vice Presidential residence and chanted for Gore to leave.

Maybe there's not been a president this bad in most of our lifetimes.
You might want to study the Carter administration and the hand Bush I had it it before you make sweeping statements.

Don't understand what you're trying to say with the statement I highlighted? I was around for the Carter years. They were horrible. Much worse than the years of W. Bush. The protest you mention did not happen during the inauguration. It happened during the Florida recount. Some people got fed up with Al Gore and his lawyers and went to the Vice President's home to protest telling him to get out of Cheney's house. Several news agencies went to Florida following the Supreme Court's ruling. After they did their own recount even they concluded that Bush won the election.

I understand that feeling, and probably many other americans do as well, and so their only recourse is to sing Sha na na na.

And, no. Warren is a bigot who had no place in today's festivities.
I agree, and while I supported the idea of Warren being there, after listening to him speak about equal rights for all humans, I was repulsed, because the gays do not have equal rights. Now the minister at the end was wonderful, and I want to look up his speech, even the black national anthem. but warren took away the classiness of the inaugration.

I can easily understand how it happened.
I can't give you any more reps, but you certainly deserve more.

In case you forgot how absurd your argument was. YOU posted pictures claiming it was of US forces raping Iraqi women. Those pictures were from a porno website. What little credibility you might have had went out the window with that.

Sorry, I don't care where she got the photos. In wars men do rape women, even cadavers like they did in Vietname. I know because my brother-in-law was there and saw it happening, and it sickened him. This is the way of wars. She doesn't have to have photos to prove it to me. At least in WWII women got something out of it--hershery bars.

kindly cite the 'lies, misery, torture, death, and destruction' wrought by the eeevil bushco upon the nations of burkina faso and tuvalu.

should be fascinating.

I thought America stood for more than torture. I thought we were supposed to be the better country. I guess you think differently.
I hold my America to higher standards.
You'd be easier to read if you tried spell check. The red lines will give you spelling options if you right click on them.
Isn't it always those that have little to say that pout about the spelling Actually I don't care for an opportunity at the water boarding, however, given the choice of a revolver to my head or the Islamofascist knife t my throat, well...you get the picture eh sweetie. I don't think the fact checkers would dispute that. So by holding"your America to higher standards" you want to elevate us to the opposing standards, i.e. from waterboarding to televised decapitation. You apologists ,realy, really, need a mental health check up. How do you spell ludicureeous?
