Jeez, you engage in one little war of choice and folks just won't let you forget it!

More dead Americans in Iraq than on 9/11, 100's of thousands of dead Iraqis, no effing WMD program, a small Al Qaeda presence until we invaded and created chaos, and war crime of torture.

Dropping out of commencement speeches is the least that should happen to these monsters.

If she thinks there's a lot of hate for her now at colleges, wait until the college football playoffs start and the committee she's on doesn't pick the teams whose fans think they're entitled to be in it.

/hint: pretty much all of them think their team is playoff worthy.

Condi showed class in removing herself from the event, and knows full well why some people are upset. At some point subby should realize that there are some very talented people with good intentions that fail to accomplish lofty goals.

Being a decent human being isn't a particularly lofty goal. I manage, and I'm not as smart or talented as Condi Rice. She chose other goals to pursue.

"I am honored to have served my country. I have defended America's belief in free speech and the exchange of ideas. These values are essential to the health of our democracy," Rice said in her statement.

I'm sure you have defended free speech and the exchange of ideas.  Unfortunately you didn't seem to bothered when that speech occurred and those ideas were exchanged solely because someone got the shiat beaten out of them on a regular basis by agents of the US government.

Well, whoopty-freakin-do. She realizes why people despise her. There's no honor in that. Supporting a bullshiat war effort and the pointless deaths of soldiers and civilians makes her an evil person. Graciously backing out of a commencement speech doesn't win her any points.

9/11 was one thing.  Little "oopsies" happen but taking the country into an unnecessary war based on a series of lies, is just impolite.

Somehow 9/11 turned into an accomplishment by the Bush administration. If Clinton hadn't made things such a mess Bush would have surely got in a jet to shoot down all the planes himself. At least with Rice going on the Sunday news shows to make blatantly false claims has prevented the Republicans from making a spectacle out of anyone ever saying something inaccurate on a Sunday show since.

Oddly enough, Dr. Ben Carson (Ind.) argued that black liberals should be defending Rice simply because she's black.

David Cross said it best in one of his routines.  The media and general public treated Bush Jr. like a kid that came in second in the Special Olympics.   The important thing was that he had fun and tried.  Any time Bush didn't shiat his pants, it was viewed as a modest success.

Obama reforms health care, kills OBL and prevents a Great Depression and, we complain about some bullshiat detail, like "people are still getting sick", "he spiked the ball" or "it took him long enough".

Yea, because no Democrat ever said that Saddam had WMD's, right?  Either Clinton, Kerry, Gore, 0bama...etc, they never, ever said that, right?  Neither did the governments of the UK, France, Germany, etc say that either.

And no one ever said, "we should just leave Saddam Hussein alone, let him be, and it'll be okay," right?

Rumsfeld is evil.  What do you mean by 'rational discussion', and amongst whom would this discussion take place?  Because neither Cheney nor Rumsfeld are interested in any rational discussion, as they've already blatantly shown.  They're firmly smug in their decisions, and won't allow any reality to infiltrate their minds.

There was no rational discussion when we were ramping up the war effort. Rational people wondered "why are we going to Iraq" and were immediately cast aside as unpatriotic terrorist sympathizers. At this point, I have no interest in rational discussions with people who thought I hated this country during that time.

Actually, dumb@ss, Obama was AGAINST invading Iraq. He even gave a public speech against it in Chicago in 2002, and took a PR hit for his opposition.

And your earlier attempt at equating the invasion of an entire country on false pretenses with Obamacare was so stupid that I assumed you were joking.
