as i've said, it's awful, but we do know that reality has a well-known liberal bias.

what i really want is for every last person who voted for bush in 2000 and especially in 2004 to apologize to every single person who has died in this fiasco.

House majority whip Jim Clyburn of South Carolina was asked by the Washington Post what Democrats would think if Petraeus reports next month that the war is going well. "That would be a real big problem for us," Clyburn candidly replied.
One could interpret this many ways. I don't have the context of the situation, but what if he meant it would be bad for us as Americans because it would be misleading?

Really, you'll have to do better than a one line quote.

AEON, you've missed the mark again. Give us some political stability, then we'll talk turn arounds.

I think the USA has a dysfunctional govt at best, and this is after 200 years people, so give me a break.

Noooo..you guys are, and politicians on the left.

The left have attempted to set "bench marks" demanding that Iraq have a "functioning" govt, when ours is barely functional.

Their duplicitous motives didn't hold up to scrunity though and they've since back down from such outrageous expectations.

So, you're saying that the US government is dysfunctional in comparison to the new Iraq "government?" Really?

Just that the Left have attempted to set impossible expectations in Iraq for duplitious reasons and they are married to that turd of "failure in iraq".

Or is it that the Left has expectations that would have been reasonable, but are impossible because of the handling by this administration?

I think success or failure in Iraq is indeed a 2008 campaign issue.

Matter of fact one of the main issues, if not the main issue.

Groups criticize McCain for calling U.S. 'Christian nation'
Story Highlights

Sen. John McCain says Constitution established U.S. as a "Christian nation"


WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Jewish groups on Monday sharply criticized Sen. John McCain's comments that he would prefer a Christian president to lead the United States.

The Arizona Republican's remarks came in an interview with Beliefnet, a Web site that covers religious issues and affairs.

"I just have to say in all candor that since this nation was founded primarily on Christian principles, personally, I prefer someone who has a grounding in my faith," the GOP presidential hopeful told the Web site in an interview published Saturday.

McCain also said he agreed with a recent poll that 55 percent of Americans believe the U.S. Constitution establishes a Christian nation. "I would probably have to say yes, that the Constitution established the United States of America as a Christian nation," he said.

I believe what he is saying is that it doesn't matter how bad Iraq is as long as reality is liberally-biased (to quote Irvine).
