10. Note to Hariold Ford: "You "caution us?" Dude...get a grip......"

"If we knew then what we know now I was in the Congress; I would not have voted for the resolution. But at the same time, we're in a different place now. I caution anybody who continues to talk about the past on this issue." Harold Ford

Interesting...a little authoritarian threat there, Harry?

Are you now reduced to lecturing us like the Big Money Politician you wish to be?

Some people - including myself - were duped for a while. Only an idiot wants to hide that fact. But when it comes to choosing politicians with JUDGMENT, shouldn't we be having some discourse as THE PEOPLE as to who showed the best judgment way back when?

My brother was correct. One of my sons was correct.

A boatload of Democrats and others on this site were right. Iraq is the every bit the bloodbath, the quagmire, the murderous money pit they said it would become.

Rather than trying to erase the slate and make yourselves all seem clean, Mr. Politician Man, step aside while Jolene and Jasper Q. Public look back for a bit to determine which leaders showed the most wisdom, restraint and honor.

Who cared back then about human life? Who said "This is wrong?"

If you truly care about your nation. And the Public who make it possible. Shut the hell up while we the PEOPLE sort it out.

You lost your last election, anyway, so who are you to tell us what to do this election season? Take a long look in the mirror, Dude, and cut that egotistical, "I-Know-Better-Than-You" crap.

Obviously you DON'T know better than a lot of your fellow Democrats.
