Barack Obamas dreams are not ruining America. George Bush's "dreams" (war, oil, religion and corporate power, etc) and those who followed him and
practice divisiveness, fear, hatred and nationalism - RUINED America and Obama's trying to bring it back.
BS, first of all it has been demonstrated MANY TIMES that even UNDER CLINTON there were plans to invade Iraq, but like always you, like many others
like you, are completely ignorant of the facts, and when the facts are shown to you, you ignore them...
In 1998 CLINTON signed the IRAQ LIBERATION ACT, which only intention was for regime change in Iraq...
Yesterday, Clinton signed into law HR 4655, the "Iraq Liberation Act
of 1998." In a presidential statement, issued by the White House,
Clinton said, "This Act makes clear that it is the sense of the Congress
that the United States should support those elements of the Iraqi
opposition that advocate a very different future for Iraq than the
bitter reality of internal repression and external aggression that the
current regime in Baghdad now offers. . . . On October 21, 1998, I
signed into law the Omnibus Consolidated and Emergency Supplemental
Appropriations Act, 1999, which made $8 million available for assistance
to the Iraqi democratic opposition. . . My Administration, as required
by that statue, has also begun to implement a program to compile
information regarding allegations of genocide, crimes against humanity,
and war crimes by Iraq's current leaders as a step towards bringing to
justice those directly responsible for such acts."
Even liberals, and democrats were calling to use force against Iraq back in the 90s.
In the following link, which I can't excerpt from, you will find many of the statements made by democrats and liberals who called for action against
Iraq, but then when Bush continued what Clinton started these same people changed their tune...
Clinton even admitted, a year after the war had started, that he still believed Saddam had WMD...
Clinton believes Iraq had weapons of mass destruction: Portugal PM
LISBON (AFP) Jan 09, 2004
Former US president Bill Clinton said in October during a visit to Portugal that he was convinced Iraq had weapons of mass destruction up
until the fall of Saddam Hussein, Portuguese Prime Minister Jose Manuel Durao Barroso said late Thursday.
"When Clinton was here recently he told me he was absolutely convinced, given his years in the White House and the access to privileged
information which he had, that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction until the end of the Saddam regime," he said in an interview with
Portuguese cable news channel SIC Noticias.
But i still don't understand why, or how, the left continues to forget these facts...
Transcript President Clinton explains Iraq strike
December 16, 1998
Earlier today, I ordered Americas armed forces to strike military and security targets in Iraq. They are joined by British forces. Their
mission is to attack Iraqs nuclear, chemical and biological weapons programs and its military capacity to threaten its neighbors.
Their purpose is to protect the national interest of theUnited States, and indeed the interests of people throughout the Middle East and
around the world.
Saddam Hussein must not be allowed to threaten his neighborsor the world with nuclear arms, poison gas or biological weapons.

Exactly true! And I was listening! I didn't get caught up in the frenzy of "change and hope" as many did. I listened to his pragmatic approach and
knew that it wasn't going to be all fixed in 2 years. And I knew a lot of people would be disappointed because they heard what they wanted to hear
during his campaign instead of what Obama actually said. That's no one's fault but theirs.
.... you did not, and you want to claim that you do not get caught up in the Obama frenzy?...
You have been shown that Obama wants to FORCE Americans to do Community Service, and such law has already been signed by Obama...
You have been shown that Obama even has wanted to FORCE American children to do Community Service...
You have been shown that Obama doesn't care for the elderly people, and he has said in even in front of an old lady asking about her mother about a
pacemaker some doctors had said could help her, and Obama said that it might be better for the elderly to continue taking PILLS, which only benefits
Big Pharma, instead of having expensive treatments, or even operations which he claims might not work....and the reason for democrats/progressives
saying, and wanting this is because they claim "it might not be economically feasible"....
You like to IGNORE FACTS because you have been caught up in the Obama frenzy, like most of the left has...
