DEAN'S gonna draw fire no matter what he does. honestly, i hope he stays as feisty as he did in the primaries. rarely do you see such excitement in a politician. plus, that party as a whole needs a good shake down, and i don't think there's anyone better than Screamin' Dean.
PS: when i saw Joe Lieberman lean in and kiss GWB after the State of the Union I just wanted to climb through my TV and smash his face in. the reason i bring it up is because we should all be on the same message....Joe looks like he's ready to switch party's.
BUSH lying about something? that's not new. hell, his whole administration is built on lies. i too wish the media would grow some balls and call him out on this.
the thing i don't get is most people these days set up their own retirement fund aside from social security. is there anyone out there that's planning to rely solely on social security when they retire?
i just emailed senator kennedy and thanked him for taking a stand.
i agree that a full withdraw is not possible or smart, however, i think we need to greatly reduce the number of troops currently stationed there. we don't need 150,000 troops there to train their army. that's just ridiculous.
most of the violence over there is happening because we are there. many of the iraqis who opposed the election did so because they saw it as happening under US occupation. if we had reduced the number of troops before the election, much of that violence wouldn't have happened (attacks on polling stations, etc.).
i think it's time we hand iraq back to it's people.
I totally identify with you here. i've always thought the term "freedom" used in the BUSH agenda seems too vague. i mean, what does he really mean when he says we are going to "bring freedom to all nations of the world"? how do you define that? if anything, i think Iraq has become less free since we sought to bring them freedom through military action...
