    People have bad memories.

    Seriously, the media would have said the same thing over some of the "speak softly and carry a big stick" policies of the early 1900s, and now Roosevelt is on Mount Rushmore. We won't know the true effectiveness or ineffectiveness of his term as president until long after he is out of office.

    His administration didn't make the general public live above their ability. As for the Iraq mess, once again we truly won't know it's long term effect until well after he is gone. His actions aren't without precedent. The general public is just too bad at history to know that.

    I did vote for McCain in the primaries in 2000.

    I will vote for him in Nov.

    I kind of liked Paul but if I really had a choice it would have been Fred Thompson with Colin Powell as VP.

    your right, but their policies did. I think it's generally accepted that the rule of the republican party or lack of rule if you will has led to the demise of the dollar, and the plundering of the american dream, and record government spending. all of these factors combined have led us to the current economic crisis. and if we're so bad at history please feel free to refresh our memories with the last time that our leaders fabricated a reason to invade another country in a misguided attempt to plunder that country's natural resources.

    I hear a lot of bitching about the economy, but a little historical perspective tells you we aren't anywhere we haven't been in the recent past.
    We'll bounce back.
    It's national security that is the only issue, and JM is the only guy you can entrust it to. Barack has no credentials at all in this area (or any area really).
    Barack wants us to be citizens of the world. That's not the role of the leader of our country. The President needs to put us first, period.
    I disagree with McCain on several important issues, but he's the only logical choice.

    What natural resources are we plundering in Iraq? Last I checked we're not stealing oil and pumping it back to the US. If we were I think gas would be a lot cheaper.

    Steeltoe What's my move?

    The current deficit, pointless war, job losses, recession, housing bust, fuel cost, (just wait until this winter's heating costs) are all because of the General Public. Seriously is GW Bush responsible for ANYTHING? Repubes spent the first term blaming the prior administration for all the wrongs of the world but this current guy pisses champagne and craps gold apparently. :Puke: One thing is for sure, nobody since Nixon or Kennedy has had a propaganda machine as effective as this guy.

    Read the oil contracts, western oil companies will take 75% of the profits.

    What contracts? The only contracts that have been signed are for consultancy for 1 year. They are still accepting bids for oil production. They also are not all US companies either. Wintershall and Royal Dutch Shell are big players as well as Russian companies.

    I believe the operative word in the quote is attempt.

    Ok Mr. Reading Is Fundamental, why don't you READ me a story on where it says we invaded Iraq in an attempt to steal their oil.

    I'm pretty sure that the governor of MA, Deval Patrick, is a Democrat. I'm also pretty sure that you will blame your confusion on your difficulties with the English language.

    You really don't believe we've sacrificed $700 Billion and 4000 American lives just to swap governments in Iraq do you?

    If you really do believe that, I've got a unicorn I'd like to sell you.

    It's always been about the oil. Maybe not to "steal" it, but definitely to secure it.
