    Oh, the old name-calling accusation. Point it out for me.

    Let's see...65% of Americans want out of Iraq as soon as reasonable; the republican candidate wants us there in a strong force for many years to come.

    If I'm the dem candidate, I hammer and hammer and hammer that at least as much as the rep candidate accuses his opponent of being a quitter.

    Do you think that his message of endless war is going to resonate with the voters? Not a chance, Chance.

    Do you think a 72 yr old lifetime Washington Insider is going to excite the populace?

    Do you think that the more he tries to placate the far right base of his party that it might possibly alienate the moderates/independents that may vote for him?

    It's all about electoral votes and the math just doesn't compute for him. Forget the nationwide polls.

    as stated in the my post the name calling did not come from the post I quoted but through other threads on this Forum.

    "as soon as reasonable" is the key there. Most american do want out of Iraq. Most of americans wanted our troops home during WW2 as well. However, Americans still want to WIN.

    A lot of Dems do want to pull out of Iraq and quit what we started. Whether or not you agree with going into Iraq is pointless because we are already there. You need to think of what you want to do at this point. Do you want Iraq to be a terrorist stronghold. Do you want to strip freedom away from the millions of people that were able to taste a little of it.

    Do you think that his message of endless war is going to resonate with the voters? Not a chance, Chance.

    Nobody wants an endless war. Believe it or not Republicans don't want an endless war. We just want to finish what was started.

    I am not a fan of McCain but I actually think he will pull the conservative base around him. Actually any Republican nominee would just to fight off Clinton or Obama. In my opinion Obama would be tougher to campain against.

    Do you think that the more he tries to placate the far right base of his party that it might possibly alienate the moderates/independents that may vote for him?

    I believe he will carry the moderates and independents as well as the conservative base. The conservative base doesn't really like him as much as other but will vote for him over either Democratic nominee.

    It's all about electoral votes and the math just doesn't compute for him. Forget the nationwide polls.
    I believe it is to early to tell where they (GOP/DEM) will land with electoral votes.

    On a side note good argument.

    There is no finishing what we started. It can never be finished. As soon as reasonable means to start today and know that it would take many, many months logistically to get completely out of there.

    It was not and is not a terrorist stronghold; Afghanistan, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia are.

    Iraq had nothing at all whatsoever to do with terrorism outside of it's borders. Nada Zilch Naught Zero

    It is all about the Electoral college. You should know as Bush lost by hundreds of thousands of votes in 2000. All he really needed was to win the state that his brother happened to be governor.

    Millions more Democrats than Republicans have voted in the primaries. This is not a coincidence. This country has moved away from your party. There will be very few McCain Democrats. Hoping that your base will be motivated is wishful thinking.

    Thank your president for making your base smaller. Many have defected to the other side. That is a fact and real evident in primary voting.

    There is always a finish...whether we have the resolve to do so is another subject.

    Actually there were terrorist in Iraq. Al Queda actually had training camps in Iraq. There were meetings held in Iraq with terrorist from around the globe. Also the mastermind behind the 1st world trade center bombings in 93 was given a govt job in Iraq and the Iragi Govt gave him a house.

    It is all about the Electoral college. You should know as Bush lost by hundreds of thousands of votes in 2000. All he really needed was to win the state that his brother happened to be governor.

    That is true that Bush lost the popular vote in 2000 and that is not the first time in history that it has happened. Come on now do you really think it was some kind of conspiracy that he won that state.

    Millions more Democrats than Republicans have voted in the primaries. This is not a coincidence. This country has moved away from your party. There will be very few McCain Democrats. Hoping that your base will be motivated is wishful thinking.

    That is true that more Democrats showed up in the primaries than Republicans, so what. Neither of us really have any hard core evidence so support what party will show up to the polls for the general election. We just have our opinions.

    Thank your president for making your base smaller. Many have defected to the other side. That is a fact and real evident in primary voting.

    I don't think the base is smaller they just aren't as active. Yes a lot of us disagree with Bush. Some more than others but they will still come out to stop Clinton or Obama.
