8. I think the original post was implying about ordinary Americans...
like Joe "sixpack" and not soldiers. Even still, given the way the MSM feeds us "news", people make decisions based on incomplete and misleading information. I don't think people can be blamed for that.
3. Supporting/enabling traitors would indeed be treasonous...
...and it was Bush who OK'd the outing of Valerie Plame-Wilson. Even Poppy agrees that anyone who knowingly outs an undercover CIA operative is a traitor:
Even though I'm a tranquil guy now at this stage of my life, I have nothing but contempt and anger for those who betray the trust by exposing the name of our sources. They are, in my view, the most insidious, of traitors.
As much as we may disagree with what they're saying, they have every right to say it. Trying to limit that right and label it as treason, as others have said in this thread, makes us look just as bad as Coulter.
A Presidential Regime that seeks to subvert the Constitution through signing statements and unabashedly illegal actions, a Regime that engages in a campaign misleading the American people to think there is a connection between Saddam Hussein and 9-11, that Iraq could construct WMD in 45 minutes, and might send balsa wood model airplanes to spray anthrax over Kansas in order to whip up sufficient support for a war fought for none of these reasons -- wouldn't this qualify as "enemies domestic" waging war against the American people? If so, it is treason.
23. Yes. Plus, those who have (or still) support Dear Leader

have a great deal to answer for to the rest of us who don't/didn't. The slimey cretins (albeit a minority of voters) who cast ballots in Dear Leader's favor are personally responsible for the deaths of more than a tenth of a million human beings in Iraq.
Weird-assed Bushevik Religion Industry (TM) voters also have a lot of blood on their hands in relation to what's going on in the Levant. It is their desires to "force" Jesus to jump in his Holy Rolls and come back to earth that allows them to sit idly by while things like this happen. All in the name of a magical reappearance by a man crucified two thousand years ago.
I'm hard-pressed to imagine how any sane person in this country expects to have a healing, reconciling dialogue with anyone who could advocate the right of any country to do this to civilians.
And yet there are members of the invertebrate wing of our party who want to get-along-and-go-along with Mass Murderers (ya listening, Joe? Other Joe? Hillary?)
