For you to characterize my responses as dancing around questions is ridiculous on its face. And typical on your part. I just call them like I see them

If anything I have been rather repetitive in my responses and unerring in my focus. Yes, they have been repetitive. Unerring...not so much.

Feel free to post that quote by the way.

You guys have wanted to catch Bush and Cheney at something, anything, for so long you are prepared to suspend all logic and make stuff up.

How else do you describe the "we know what he meant when he didn't say it" argument?

Show us the quote in anything that was posted here or anywhere that shows Bush or Cheney saying that Saddam or Iraq were involved in the Attacks of 9/11.
You really need to remove the rose colored glasses. They make you look much dumber than I believe you actually are, or want to look.

Bear,
Everytime I see someone say "I just call them like I see them" it reminds me of the interview with an umpire years ago who said:

"I just call 'em like I see 'em. And if I don't see 'em, I make 'em up"!

Good for him. I don't.

Difference is, he has a fast ball coming at him at 95mph into a dynamic box that has no defined, visible perimeters. I, on the other hand can actually read the words, as many times as necessary to glean their meaning.

Thanks for letting me point that out.

In a backhanded, indirect sort of way you pointed out Stuantle's problem. Don't be so subtle, mcbear, it gets lost - he probably thinks you were agreeing with him. Jim

No shit, huh? Got that all figured-out on your own. Wow, that's some revelation.

In other breaking news, gravity continues.

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 thatís what I intend to reverse.

For Fuck’s Sake (to coin a phrase…)

No one on the Right has the ability to make a marginally cogent point.

It’s enough to turn one off of political threads altogether.
