I bet this group can find those pesky WMD's. The ones that Saddam and Hans Blix said were not there. Rummy said they were. And they weren't. Bush assured us that they were not under his desk.

Very sad and very disappointing. I guess it should be expected when you have neocons like Rahm and Hillary in your cabinet. Obama seems to forgotten how he got elected. This is not change, but more of the same.

I think Obama knew very well what he was doing, but I think he is miscalculating the liberal base. There have been grumblings of some that wish to primary against him. Wouldn't that be something.

I'm rather saddened by those folks who opposed the war so strongly under Bush, who now remain silent now that the Obama administration is in office. If folks are going to oppose the war, then oppose the war, don't give a free pass just because the party of choice is now running the show.

Liberal base...right wingers...blah, blah, blah...one of these days everyone will wake up and realize that the powers that be, and I mean our corporate overlords are running this country. They are currently running it by making sure we are all polarized and arguing over who is right or wrong. Their strategy is working. As long as they have the citizenry doing this, there will be less attention paid to their war profiteering and other misdeeds. The Dems and the GOP are just puppets now, taking turns managing the fun house mirror of public policy.

We need a viable third party that will shake things up. I don't know how or when this will happen, but we really do need a true populist party that will throw all of them out.

Shake things up? LOL, well sure that's good in theory but look at what's happening w/Obama. The air is rife w/claims that Obama is too radical. If he's not shaking things up, then I don't know who is.
