I don't wear size 22s (or a rubber nose).

Wingnut: How about this, put yourself in the President's shoes for 30 seconds.. Green917: Many of us who have been against this war from the beginning have tried to put ourselves in the President's shoes but, alas, I don't wear size 22s (or a rubber nose)... This administration and, in particular, this President have made it a point to make it very evident that the buck stops anywhere but there in their White House. G.W. Bush and, to some extent other members of his administration (some more than others), are DIRECTLY responsible for the nightmare that Iraq has become, the rise in terrorist events in the world over the last 2 years, the fact that Osama Bin Laden and his chief lieutenants are still at large, and the lies that they told to the American people and Congress (an impeachable offense I may add).

I have noticed a huge influx of trolls both here at dkos and on other liberal sites of late. I normally just shrug it off and go about my business but, I have, on a couple of occassions now, felt it necessary to respond to their inanity. The following is a post I encountered on the Huffington Post Blog. This poor deluded fool not only contradicts himself but, his version of the facts is so far spun (he's obviously a right-wing media junkie because ALL the talking points are there) that it's hard to tell if he really believes any of what he typed.

My response to him after the fold...

Good grief it's hard keeping up with the self indulgent lies of the left.
The blame America first crowd can't/won't accept the facts when they could simply just hate W. How about this, put yourself in the President's shoes for 30 seconds:


It's 9/11 and America has just suffered her single most tragic day at the hands of Al Qaeda, a world wide organization based in Afghanistan. You stop them in Afghanistan, but you have information from the CIA and intelligence agencies across the world, that Saddam (you know, the guy who has used WMD's against his own people and Iranians on several occasions) and his minions have met with Al Qaeda 90+ times. Do you wait for the 93rd meeting where Saddam hands off a WMD to the terrorists and New York becomes a smoking hole in the ground, or do you take action?

Many of us who have been against this war from the beginning have tried to put ourselves in the President's shoes but, alas, I don't wear size 22s (or a rubber nose).

As you stated, we suffered our single most tragic day on 9/11/01 at the hands of al Qaeda, a worldwide organization led by a Saudi Arabian ex-pat holed up in Afghanistan. In point of fact, we did NOT stop them in Afghanistan because our President decided to change course and go after Iraq; diverting both troops and over $700 Million dollars away from the cause of stopping al qaeda to pursue their reckless ideas of nation building in Iraq. If we "stopped them in Afghanistan" as you say we did, then I have a single question for you: Where in the fuck is Osama Bin Laden and why has he not been brought to justice? The reality is that Osama Bin Laden, al qaeda, and yes even the Taliban still have complete impunity to operate in large sections of Afghanistan and Pakistan. As to the veracity of the intelligence given to the administration by the CIA and other intelligence organizations, there were MANY individuals at CIA, FBI, and the State Department that had very serious reservations about the intelligence being twisted by the administration to push for war in Iraq. Most of them have since been weeded out by Porter Goss' little pogrom at CIA but, the fact remains that there were serious reservations regarding the way in which the administration was using, and in some cases skewing, the intelligence on Iraq's alleged WMD programs.
