Iraq continues to be a serious problem, and the Bush administration has done nothing but increase the problem and cause unnecessary deaths. It is a mess, but I have a solution: I would never have gone there...

O’bama thinks there’s an UNDO button?
"Tard" refers to the ping list members and not to the subject of the thread!

Read the article. :)
20/20 hindsight! The real question is what will he do now. There are no “overs” in foreign affairs.
I’ve known a lot of people whose opinion on what we should do in Iraq now is exactly this.
My solution to my unfortunate first marriage is the same. However, in reality....
In our crazy world, it’s often hard to tell the difference between sarcastic mockery of clueless Democrats, and the actual writings of clueless Democrats.
great solution. To solve high gas prices, Obama would of never invented the combustion engine too.
Hee hee! Took me a minute to figure out it’s a parody.
Dear Mr. empty-suit whose name cannot be mentioned,
No matter how many times you press ctrl-z, the Islamofascists will not leave Iraq.
You must BLAST them out.
warning: good satire.
“Barack Obama is a U.S. Senator from Illinois who enjoys nap time and finger painting. He is running for president.”
Al Gore invented the internet. That’s nothing! Obama has invented a time machine, and he’s going to go back and reinstall Saddam as the leader of Iraq.
This isn’t at editorial by Barack Obama and he headline shouldn’t call it that.
But it’s funny.
That's not a solution Mr Obama, that's hindsight and wishful thinking. If monday morning quarterbacking is your idea of solutions.. I suggest you get your head out of your arse and look at the present and future, and stop focusing on the past.
Obama shouldn’t have gone there. LOL!
IMAO ^ almost looks like LMAO
As for Obama, his echoing cries of 'hope' and 'change' do not sync with his unwillingness to look at the future with Iraq, and instead stare at the past as the point at which the solution can be implemented. That to me is not leadership.
Well, other people who got millions from Saddam said the same thing. Why should Buraq be different.
Guess it doesn't like my ISP location...
Obviously, Hussein is not that intelligent.
I got into a discussion like this yesterday with an apparent Ron Paul supporter on this very forum. He actually wrote (amongst his name-calling, cursing and Bush lied comments) that the millions of Vietnamese and Cambodians slaughtered when we left Vietnam were not our responsibility to begin with and neither are the Iraqis. I was just floored to say the least.
Barry, I have no doubt that you,
in a post 9/11 situation,
facing the intel that the president had, and the world had, and that our allies confirmed that Saddam was a threat,
would have done NOTHING.
Oh, better yet, to solve high energy prices,
he’s going to make it harder on the energy producers to produce the energy.
Satire is lost on the humorless.
I think this is satire, but one can't be sure nowadays.
Obama is the most important man in the history of all humanity: He invented the time machine!
Maybe Mulligans should be his new middle name...
This is a solution?
Shhhhh! It is fun! Oh, and it is what he has been saying!

You should have let one of those guys get your freeper handle ... oy boy!
Bam Bam’s crytal ball is picking up Al Jazeera.
That would be ctrl-f.
That is EXACTLY my solution to B. Hussein Obama.

Iraq continues to be a serious problem, and the Bush administration has done nothing but increase the problem and cause unnecessary deaths. It is a mess, but I have a solution: I would never have gone there.
The Iraq War will be a big problem to inherit, but it would not be if we hadn’t have gone there. That’s why that is my solution. People ask me, “Won’t leaving Iraq now be abandoning the Iraqi people?” Well, it wouldn’t be abandoning them if we hadn’t had gone there. “What about a civil war?” others ask, to which I say there would be no civil war if Saddam were still in charge because we didn’t go to Iraq. As you can see, not having gone to Iraq easily solves all these problems.
As for Al Qaeda in Iraq, I don’t think they would be a problem if we hadn’t had gone. Maybe they already were there and working with some support from Saddam, but I still think not having gone there is a risk worth taking. You may worry about all the terrorists there and whether they have intentions for attacking America, but you wouldn’t if we hadn’t had gone.
Senator John McCain questions whether I have experience enough to deal with Iraq, but the fact is that he’s old. No one faints at his rallies... unless they forgot their heart medication because they’re as old as he is. And I do have experience: Experience at not going to war. That’s why not having gone to Iraq is the perfect solution for me. It’s one I’m uniquely able to espouse and have been consistent on. Years ago I said we shouldn’t invade Iraq, and that is still my solution.
A few have said that not going to Iraq isn’t a solution anymore since we already have gone there. I hear your concern and I have three words for you: Hope. Change. The future.
That’s right: The future. And not just any future; a future where we look forward and say, “We shouldn’t have gone to Iraq.”
Barack Obama is a U.S. Senator from Illinois who enjoys nap time and finger painting. He is running for president.
Great solution. Now, for something really different!
Maybe he’ll use this style of resolving problems for everything.
In the meantime, my solution to not having Barack Obama as a President is that he never should have been born.
Nah...I kind of like my handle, it was given to me on another forum during Clinton’s impeachment by a group of libs. I was posting info from FR to that forum just to get them riled up, LOL!
That is funny. “Bam Bam”
Obama’s article is very revealing. It shows such a shallow, shortsighted view of the world. This man is NOT READY to lead this country. To say, I just wouldn’t have gone is just ridiculous. WE ARE THERE! Forget the “I wouldn’t have gone”. That’s history. That’s thinking in the past. I thought this was a man to lead us to new heights, new visions, new directions. All he is doing is looking back to what he wouldn’t have done. This is unbelievably naive. Folks, we can’t let this lightweight run this great country. It will be a disaster!
:::in my best "change we can believe in" voice::::
"I would have allowed Saddam to gain power and weapons, and waited until he dropped a nuke on us. Then I would have sat in my bunker and talked about hope."
