    This is an interesting development:
    Trump has basically blown up the entire GOP lie that Republicans pretend to believe about the Iraq War.
    During the Republican debate, Trump admitted Bush "lied" about WMDs to drag America into the war. Trump also called the war a "mistake."
    The South Carolina audience erupted into boos.

    Trump has adopted the liberal position on the Iraq War.
    Will this hurt him among GOP voters?

    This is a major shift for the Republican Party. Their leading figure admits that Bush's lies got America into a failed war that destabilized the Middle East.
    Donald Trump also says he supported impeaching George W. Bush.

    Would Trump support war crimes charges against Bush if he is elected -- which many think are justified?

    It's a falsehood to be showing Democrats commenting on WMD, back when the Congress was being fed false intelligence by the Bush Administration.

    OF COURSE they saw Iraq as an enemy, based on what they were being briefed. Which we now know was all phony, a neocon farce largely engineered by VP Cheney, under the nose of the clueless President Bush.

    Then Democrats in Congress realized they had been deceived, one of the greatest con jobs in US history. They tried to do the patriotic thing, only to later discover they had been tricked and misled. The irony is that Repugnants are still using those commendable reactions to the false intelligence coming from the Bush Admin, as we see in this thread, to condemn Democrats for the Iraq debacle!

    Jewish people have a wonderful wonderful word for this; hutzpah. Republicans lied, and blame the people who, in good faith, believed in those lies and acted upon them. Maybe there even needs to be a new word for that, which may be more powerful than hutzpah.

    That debate was FUBAR. I doubt even a super PAC from Jesus the billionaire could save conservatism, at this point.

    "It's a falsehood to be showing Democrats commenting on WMD, back when the Congress was being fed false intelligence by the Bush Administration."

    So Bobbi, not that we haven't been over and over and over and over and over and over and over this, but Bush took office when? I don't care that you don't know exactly what day. WHAT YEAR?

    Yeah true, I know many consider Texas a nation, but to the best I recall, Bush was Texas governor when 'most' of the statements in the little video, were made.

    You could easily discover that by clicking on the pretty little arrow that leans to the right, but since you refuse to do that, following are the transcripts (which we've discussed many times before)

    It would be hilariously awesome, and so Trump-esque, if Trump began stumping that he would have Bush and Cheney prosecuted for war crimes. LOL. The evidence for prosecution is overwhelming, plus it would really stick in Jeb's craw, which would be Trump's true motivation for doing it!!icon_lol.gif

    Unfortunately for you and the other Bernie fans, the fix is in and Hillary and the DNC have already wrapped up the nomination in her favor.

    Do I need to remind you that she got as many delegates in NH as Bernie did, despite Bernie trouncing her 60% to 38%?

    That Hillary "won" an almost statistically impossible 6 out of 6 "coin tosses" to "win" Iowa?

    Wake up! Your only hope is if Obama allows Lynch to indict Hillary on the thousands of felony counts the FBI will soon announce.


    Statistically impossible?

    Oh dear.

    Statistics are not your strong point.

    Also she didn't WIN Iowa in coin tosses - those were for a different kind of delegate. And this was Bernie's peize territory an she still won.

    Those super delegates will change their tune if Sanders' popularity overwhelms Clinton. Same thing happened in the last democratic primaries when Obama beat Clinton.

    BUT if Clinton does win, at least she'll keep the country united and safe. The republicans are apt to spark a race war with their irresponsible rhetoric.

    -- Rep. Henry Waxman (D, CA), Oct. 10, 2002

    "In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members ... It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons."
    -- Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002

    "We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction."
    -- Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), Dec. 8, 2002

    Unfortunately for you and the other Bernie fans, the fix is in and Hillary and the DNC have already wrapped up the nomination in her favor.

    Do I need to remind you that she got as many delegates in NH as Bernie did, despite Bernie trouncing her 60% to 38%?

    That Hillary "won" an almost statistically impossible 6 out of 6 "coin tosses" to "win" Iowa?

    Wake up! Your only hope is if Obama allows Lynch to indict Hillary on the thousands of felony counts the FBI will soon announce.

    Those super delegates will change their tune if Sanders' popularity overwhelms Clinton. Same thing happened in the last democratic primaries when Obama beat Clinton.

    BUT if Clinton does win, at least she'll keep the country united and safe. The republicans are apt to spark a race war with their irresponsible rhetoric.


    I bet she'd be quite the war hawk, actually.

    Trump in NO conservative.


    Weren't you one of the delusional ones saying Trump would win a general election in a landslise? icon_lol.gif But one word against that awful president that excellent Obama is still cleaning up after and a change of tune ;)


    "Weren't you one of the delusional ones saying Trump would win a general election in a landslise"

    WTF is a land Slice? We call that a parcel over here in the USA.

    And NO that's not my wishes although it might well happen. It won't be with my vote.









    Don't try argumentum adhominem on a typo I made. Go back through your posts. You and SouthBeach were saying it'd be a Trump landslide icon_lol.gif

    And SouthBeach. You can have an opinion on EU politics if you'd like? It'd be too right wing and for big business politics rather than people politicians but alright. Everyone can comment.

    I'll vote for Bernie before I would Trump.



    Hillary has very similar policies to Bernie but more moderate.

    And prize - typos are not the end of everything icon_rolleyes.gif
