No. of Recommendations: 2
It doesn't make it right for Obama and the Dems to screw America to the wall simply because Bush made a huge mistake, which was supported by the way by virtually every Dem in Congress.

Vote to invade Iraq:

US House of Representatives

Party Yes No
Republican 215 6
Democrat 82 126

Senate

Republican 48 1
Democrat 29 21

Not exactly "virtually every Dem in Congress". In fact by my count, opposed by a majority of Dems in Congress. The vote on Afghanistan was far more lopsided; then again it was passed on September 14, and there was confirmed evidence that the Taliban was supporting the terrorist camps of Bin Laden where some of the hijackers had trained.

Not that it changes your rant, but I thought you might appreciate a review of the facts, rather than the "enhanced truth" that so often passes here.
