Sorry but having someone who mentions

"God" in his speeches and sends thousands of men and women to their death for his own selfish reasons (wake up and smell the coffee...the key issue here is not the freedom of the Iraqi population but getting his hands on oil...and turning intrest away from the real problem: Bin Laden has still not been caught and no one has answered for 9/11 yet) should be impeached on the spot. If the Bush really cared about freedom and well being in other nations, why is he not doing anything for Dafur or other African nations that live with genocide everyday?  Saddam Hussein may have been a tyrant and his execution may have been justified (though I am against the death penalty) for his crimes against humanity but he did nothing to the US - he never had any nuclear weapons that everyone was so hell-bent on finding. Strange that Dubya would call Saddam a tyrant since he was very chummy once with Bush senior and then feel sorry for him for the way he was excecuted. Even the Iraqi prime minister told him - mind your own business, how we handle justice and punishment in our country is our problem. A nice slap in the face to someone who wants to help the Iraqis.

Oh and for the record I'm not at all selfish - I volunteer lots of hours by teaching English to orphans and abandoned children. I fight tooth and nail to make sure these children get what they deserve  - love and warmth. Putting a smile on a child's face is the real battle worth fighting for. Sorry if I'm not a redneck warmonger who can actually read a map.

I disagree...
I want a man or woman in office with morals and obviously a lot of other Americans feel the same.

As far as this being a senseless war, you're wrong about that, too.  You are likely one who would never stand up and fight for anything unless it directly affects you, which makes you very selfish in my book.  Someone needed to help Iraq out from under Hussein's reign of terror but people who can't seem to understand that everyone deserves a chance at freedom are usually the people who aren't willing to risk anything for anyone but themselves.

If our forefathers had thought the way you do, we would likely have never become the United States of America because cowards don't fight.  They quit and lose.

I'd rather have a President who can't keeps his pants on

and his wife who sticks by him for whatever reason she chooses (cause at the end of the day their personal lives are none of our business)and who'd like to make a bid for the White House than the criminal we have in office now. 3000+ senseless deaths for an delusional cause (war for freedom....... from what?) and Bin Laden is still out there, despite all his anal promises. Bill Clinton may have problems regarding his personal life but at least America didn't sleep in fear when he was in office.

My two cents.
