    That's quite funny smile
    Trouble is, it would be just as easy to use the same technique to 'prove' the exact opposite!

      I'm not supplying this as "proof." I just thought it was funny! I have, however, pondered some of the same points.

      How would you go about proving the opposite?

        By equal and opposite selection of 'facts' and by making the dumb blonde the right winger. It's just a game when it gets this superficial.

          The overwhelming reality is that the criticisms leveled at Bush over Iraq are equally applicable to Obama's Libyan adventure but remain ignored by Obama supporters ( read Bush critics) and the press.  The justifications for waging war on Libya are even more diaphanous than those used by Bush to attack Iraq.

            Really? First of all, Libyans are protesting in the streets, trying to take their country away from a dictator who was killing them en masse. There is not committal of ground troops of any kind, and we have a unilateral force. That is Libya.
            In Iraq, there was no uprising. Hussein wasn't sending tanks into his own streets to fire on crowds. Bush and the administration came out on several occasions stating that there was a link between 9/11 and Hussein, that Hussein had WMDs and was going to use them, and they knew for a fact where they were. They said he was an immediate threat. It turned out they lied, and later we found out that they knew they were lying. We sent 150,000 ground troops in.
            So tell me, what is the link? Tan people and guns? Is that really all you have?

      The funny clip in the first post. Well, it's supposed to be funny, at least.
