I don't know why the four or five republicans here are here, to be honest. It can't be any fun going 5 on 30 in this place.

We need them here, in fact we need more, otherwise it's just one big choir preaching to each other...

Ah, so you think a surge of troops in Afghanistan, something you opposed in Iraq, will work in Afghanistan, like it did in Iraq?

Please, take a chill pill.

First off, I'm just having some fun. If you want to talk about non-constructive posts, I could show you some from every single person in this forum, yourself included. Are you saying that during the RNC next week, there will be no asinine posts or any posts mocking the event and the speakers and speeches?

As for the "wrong country" remark, from what the other poster said, it was implied that the country we went to war with after 9/11 was the wrong country. Don't worry, I knew Zootlesque meant Iraq...

I understand the vast majority of people here are Obama supporters and liberals. What is wrong with me hanging around, offering a rare conservative point of view on things, and challenging some of the truly idiotic things said by some in here that would otherwise go unchallenged?

There's nothing wrong with it, as long as it is constructive and reasonably intelligent. Continue on.

it always adds so much to the conversation.
There are plenty of other factors and statistics to look at as well.

Naturally, you'll ignore anything that does not put the Bush years in a bad light. Analysis free indeed.

how does the AP even claim objectivity anymore?

Obama speech spares details, keeps up attacks

He offered Gays, hospital visitation. No risk taker.

and no defense of Roe v Wade.
Just a promise to reduce unwanted pregnancies.

while i would have preferred more bravery as well,

do you doubt his commitment to retaining the right to choose and to the growing acknowledgment that gays are people too?

Really you could just go to his website if you have doubts: "he has been a consistent champion of reproductive choice and will make preserving women’s rights under Roe v. Wade a priority as President. He opposes any constitutional amendment to overturn the Supreme Court's decision in that case."
