worfMcallen, TXBernie comes from Vermont. His opposition to
the war did not carry political risk. Unfortunately, there were many who did not
stand up even if they questions the Bush-Cheney White House on the
"evidence" put forward.Anyway, the vote was not to go to
war, but to authorize the president to use force to defend the United States
against the threat posed by Iraq if, and only if, diplomatic or other peaceful
means failed. This is far different from giving the Bush Administration
authority to go to war.It is understandable that Hillary would
support this authorization considering she was a senator from New York and the
needed to support the people of New York. This does show a political purpose in
the vote, but many Democrats who did not support the action were not in a
similar situation. Also, with her political aspirations going forward, it would
have been fodder for the Republican Noise Machine if she had not voted as she
did.Bernie did not face such a challenge. And Donald Trump, who
apparently was for the war before he was against it, had no responsibility
Associated Press does not know who Trump will pick.They are
guessing, to start tearing down their character early.
@Impartial7 8:41 a.m. July 1, 2016Someone please explain how the
Evangelicals & Family Values Republicans can get behind a ticket whose
candidates have been married 6 times?---------------------Not just that. Both of them were "entertaining" their next wives
and/or girlfriends while married to an existing wife. And not just once, for
either of them. That shows neither of them can be trusted with what is
Hey Mr. Brightside -"What info did Bernie have that Hillary
didn't? He had foresight and judgment."Bernie and Obama had
NO more information than Hillary, BUT they BOTH possessed a healthy mistrust of
Republican claims and promises.Fortunately Hillary Clinton has the
ability to learn from her mistakes, and she freely admits here mistakes, unlike
Republican leaders, whose first instinct is to simply blame the Dems for the
horrific results of Republican mistakes.Hillary has lived and
learned. NONE of us with good sense are nearly as gullible as we once were. The
myriad false claims made by Republican leaders are evidence enough to
AUTOMATICALLY distrust Republican polticians.We don't fall for
the claims of Fraudsters like Donald Trump.Why do you think Trump
ran as a Republican? It's because he KNEW we Democrats would never be
gullible enough to believe any of his lies, prolific as they are.Donald Trump is the LEADER of the Republican Party for a reason."Dishonesty is a hallmark of Donald Trump." - Mitt Romney
The perfect "anti-establishment ticket" - Trump and Bernie Sanders.
The only person on the entire Republican party willing to sully opponent with
out right lies and innuendo ALMOST as much as Trump is Gingrich, who will say
and do anything to discredit an opponent, even spread lies where possible. Oh
well, Trump is already at the bottom of the polls, so it can't get much
lower, or can it? Both parties have absolutely lost touch with American voters.
Sorry Gary O. That argument only works if there hadn't been plenty of
Democrats opposed (and a few Republicans too) to the Iraq war from the
beginning. What info did Bernie have that Hillary didn't? He had
foresight and judgment. I just can't wait to see how when Hillary makes
bad foreign policy decisions as President you still blame Republicans.
Wait a second, I was told that the equally qualified Kim Kardashian would be
Trump's VP pick.Or maybe Donald should pick Paris Hilton
because her understanding of global politics is equal to the Donald's.Anymore, there are many in this country that seem to value what Donald
Trump and Kim Kardashian represent. Ugh.
I always thought Newt would be a great WH Press Secretary. Common sense and a
sharp tongue are sorely needed there.
I am truly am disappointed that he isn't vetting Palin. That would have
been the perfect ticket. The debates would be must see TV!!
Hey Mr Brightside -"Democrats, who have complained about Wall
St. and the Iraq war for more than a decade nominated the Wall St. candidate who
voted for the Iraq war."Hillary Clinton voted to defend this
nation from the evil Sadaam Hussein and his vast collection of WMD's.Hillary Clinton had NO IDEA the Republican Bush administration would
stoop so low as to put Americans in harms way just to secure reelection. And she
had no idea these Republican wise men would lie to the entire nation in order to
justify their criminal war in Iraq.3/24/02Saddam "is actively
pursuing nuclear weapons at this time."— Cheney on CNN9/8/02"We do know, with absolute certainty, that he is using his
procurement system to acquire the equipment he needs in order to enrich uranium
to build a nuclear weapon."—Cheney on Meet the Press9/13/02" . . . we're getting additional information that, in fact,
Hussein is reconstituting his biological, chemical, and nuclear weapons
programs." - Cheney. There was NO such new intel.And
on and on and on . . . Read Rumsfeld's speech before Congress for even more
creative Republican lies.
Requirements for being Donald Trump's running mate.1. Be a
Republican2. Be unable to feel personal shame3. Have very few future
political prospectsSo, that leaves Gingrich, Christie, Huckabee,
Santorum, Carson, Jindal, Perry, and of course Palin.
I'm pretty sure that Trump has scientists trying to clone The Don in time
for becoming his VP. After all, Trump is only willing to take advice from
Trump. A Trump Trump ticket would be twice as fantastic . . . right?
@Impartial7Sure, it's because partisans always ignore the
faults of their own party. It's the same reasons Democrats, who have
complained about Wall St. and the Iraq war for more than a decade nominated the
Wall St. candidate who voted for the Iraq war.
Just when you thought it couldn't get any lower or amusing for the Trump
campaign. Looks like Fox News and Talk Radio's vetting of his VP
candidate is going to pay off.
Someone please explain how the Evangelicals & Family Values Republicans can
get behind a ticket whose candidates have been married 6 times?
Newt and Donald will be hilarious.
And we thought Mr. Trump had a bad month in June!Just when you
thought it was safe to go back into the water!
