IRAQ: Obama’s retreat has been a disaster

Do the Democrats really want to relitigate the Iraq war? Dick Cheney served this country honorably and was a key adviser to President George W. Bush. Bush made the decision to go to war, not Cheney. The decision was supported by numerous Democrats, including Sens Hillary Clinton and John Kerry.

There is an abundance of evidence that Saddam Hussein had ties to many Islamic terrorist groups including al-Qaida and that he supported global terrorism. The Bush administration feared he might share weapons of mass destruction with one of these groups that could then launch attacks against the U.S. A 2008

ROMNEY: Trump endorsement pitiful

Re: Donald Trump’s endorsement of Mitt Romney.

It is clear to the most moderately intelligent observer that the GOP has already ceded the 2012 election to President Obama.

The party’s serious candidates – Jeb Bush, Mitch Daniels, Chris Christie and David Petraeus – have deferred until 2016. This leaves the Republican stage crowded with clowns and losers.

Newt Gingrich was rejected by his own party in a previous Congress. Rick Santorum lost his last election by double digits. The Donald and the Willard can only be regarded as Marie Antoinettes in gray flannel.

It is sad to see the
