    you ask a good question.

    The problem is Iraq did happen and all these years later, with so many American deaths and Trillions of dollars gone, we just have to say no.

    Obama has forgotten he was elected to end the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    ...the GOP seems perfectly willing to hold their breath until the whole country turns Blue.

      He mentioned that very fact during the conference today.  That he was elected to end wars, not to start them.

      He seems keenly aware that this is a hard sell and that he may not have the support of the American people, but he is trying to make the case.

      I just think the reality of our war exhaustion is setting in hard.  Rightfully so.
