As a Systems Analyst, it is my duty to point out that the problem is not that the glass is half full or half empty. The problem is that it is the wrong sized glass to hold the appropriate fluids.

Further to that point, there is no "finish the job" with Iraq. It has never been defined with an end point. There are no specific criteria to define the end point [other than the Democratic caveats attached to spending bills] nor are there contractual documents with the Iraqi government that specifies WHEN we turn over their country to them. NO "finish the job" possible.

Adjunct to that, "cut and run" is just a retarded statement from our "all hat, no cattle" president who is incapable of understanding complex issues, thus the simple cliche.

It's why man invented remote control.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.

What he said.

I am always disturbed by folks who make their political decisions from 30 second advertisement.

I've cut out that meddlesome middleman and eliminated the need for the remote control altogether

So, to clarify, exactly who was "dumb as a rock"?
Sorry bear! I saw the TV commercial--in Obambi's own words (mouth moving)--and that idiot actually said "...I passed the legislation!" I could not believe my eyes or ears. The guy actually said it!! My guess is that by now a million of his supporters have pointed out the idiocy of his statement to his campaign and they will pull it quicker than shit. So it may not be out there w/out an edit very long. Even if someone else wrote it, Obambi actually said it, and I can hardly wait to see how this on gets covered up...

I don't care if it's a 3-second ad, any idiot who says HE PASSED THE LEGISLATION" is either a narcissistic dumb shit or just a dumb shit who doesn't know what he's talking about! You need to get yourself a better candidate.

He also just said this afternoon that he is open to "re-assessing his time-line" for removing troops from Iraq! Quite the flip-flopper!" Don't you think???
