  1. This is why I admire President Clinton because atleast he can admit his mistakes like a man! unlike bush who constanly justified his cruel actions against a country that never attacked us in the first place!

  2. Clinton did what all politicians do; obey the people. At the time DOMA was passed, the us population was against gay marriage. As a politician, he represented the will of the people. However, the will of the people is not a constant factor. It changes as the public becomes more educated. It was not Clinton's fault it was the peoples. As president it was his job to do what the citizens wanted not what Bill Clinton wanted

  3. To those of you posting comments like "America is Godless" allow me to ask you my fellow Christians what is the Golden Rule? Do onto others as you would have them do unto you. I don't know about some of you folks, but I don't want to be ridiculed for who I am. Gay, Straight, Lesbian, Black, White, Muslim, Asian, we are all part of humanity. We all aspire to achieve happiness, and should help one another achieve this goal not hinder it.

  4. "I don't oppose all wars. What I am opposed to is a dumb war. What I am opposed to is a rash war. What I am opposed to is the cynical attempt by Richard Perle and Paul Wolfowitz and other armchair, weekend warriors in this administration to shove their own ideological agendas down our throats, irrespective of the costs in lives lost and in hardships borne."

    – IL State Senator Barack Obama, October 2002

  5. Well then I might of been wrong then Obama may or may not of done the same thing bush did. I should of explain my point better. My reasons for saying my comment was, Bush was not the only advocate for the war. I think his administration was under heavy pressure from both Rep. Dem. to find the weapons of mass destruction. Bush was probably slightly paranoid because of the 9/11 attack and wanted justice for it and iraq a hot spot for terrorists. Don't get me wrong i too am not a fan of bush.

  6. Well maybe. I think he was more the reverse, that the administration pressured congress although yeah they did including the weak dems pretty much go along, but also I think cheney and his crew were the driving force. always seemed like bush was being led, and whenever he didn't listen to cheney he made better decisions. guess we'll find out someday.

  7. Yes the U.S. is going Straight to hell & I think it's staring to gain some speed, unfortunately, just look at how Americans have changed in the last 5 to 10 yrs. It's sickening
