In Response to CAT" Re: Background on employer based health insurance:
So you are saying don't attack the staging area & training area used by Al Qaeda to attack NYC? Is that right? And you can't even concede that just maybe our massive invasion of the staging area impeded or stopped any major attack on mainland U.S.A. since then? Or that we became or maintained credibility with allies in the region? What does Syria expect from Obama? What fear does Iran have in developing nuclear weapons' capability?
"The problem with your reasoning, journey, is that Afghanistan didn't attack us--Al Qaeda did. Bush behaved as though we were being attacked by a conventional nation-state. And Bush showed no real interest in capturing bin Laden or "winning" the war in Afghanistan (if that were really possible) by turning his attention in less than a year to Iraq.
The result is that we're fighting the longest, and possibly the most expensive, war in our history. And for what? What exactly do you think we're going to win?
This was complete incompetence, and a huge waste of treasure and lives. I have no interest in a "red-blooded" president. I am interested in smart presidents."

Cat, "...What did Bush accomplish besides getting us into two wars..." this is a sickening falsehood and you should really grow up & drop it. One of the wars to which you refer is Afghanistan; their government of Taliban and their territory were used as training areas to attack the mainland U.S.A. (9-11-2001). Any red blooded U.S. Pres had to strike back specifically against Afghanistan and that was and would be an act of war. It may have been executed better or worse, faster or slower, for a shorter or longer duration, but any functional human knows we had to strike any nation that launched an attack killing thousands of mainland U.S.A. civilians by design.
You may sometimes have half a leg to stand on but with this kind of chorus that you know to be false, it just eviscerates any basis to consider your posts.
