This is getting rediculous. Bush today asked for $25 BILLION more in war funding.

This is getting out of hand and needs to stop.

What is the total direct cost for the war so far? I don't even want to think about the indirect cost with many industries suffering from jittery consumers. Especially in our beloved airline industry.

This is going to cost the US taxpayers a lot of money well into the future.

Yes, I'm sure GWB is, at this very minute, considering raising taxes for the rich. Not!  Insane

I have an idea... gas subsidies! We can pay the gas companies $0.50/gallon. They, in turn, will lower gas prices $0.10/gallon. An additional profit of $0.40/gallon AND lower gas prices!! This will increase fuel consumption and the increased profits will raise tax revenue. When we take over Iraq, the oil companies can "reciprocate" by providing more American jobs, including a cooshy one for Bush starting next spring! Everyone wins!!!

Yes, it's an outrage, for a military initiative they never sufficiently justified or even quantified. They bamboozled the U.S. public and the world with a list of heinous weapons that couldn't be located then changed the focus to say Saddam was a sponsor of world terrorism. Pushing aside the more pertinent danger of Al Queda, they sidestepped U.N. objections and went charging in there. Now we and the next generation are stuck footing the bill for an occupation that will likely last many years, even assuming they can ever quell the omnipresent insurgents. Rumsfeld made a compelling case for war in his Feb. '03 address weeks before the first assault but none of those ominous claims seem to have panned out. I, like many, was taken in by all of this but now I feel betrayed. Though I'd voted for Gore, I was so proud of Bush after his magnificent 9/11 response in Afghanistan but I now feel so betrayed by this reckless war crusade that apparently had no solid rationale behind it. Our G.I.s and civilians are dying daily in the rather hollow cause of bringing freedom to Iraqis, many of whom apparently don't want it, or at least OUR brand of freedom. And this administration, seemingly incapable of admitting a major mistake was made, continues to lump this nightmare together with the noble pursuit of Al Queda as the "War On Terror" (thank you, Fox News!  Yeah sure). The foolishness of the Administration is only matched by its arrogance in this matter. They've squandered the sympathy and support the U.S. received in the aftermath of 9/11 and instead have caused a backlash of contempt in much of the world. I used to consider myself a moderate Republican but I'll not be voting to re-elect a President who has conspired with his cabinet to deceive us and cover up their mistakes, bad judgement or a hidden agenda, whatever. However you may feel otherwise about Bush & Co. on the economy and other issues (and I've got problems with them in some of those areas, as well), I'd think even most Bush supporters, aside from Limbaugh, Hannity and their ilk, will admit the Iraq fiasco is indeed, one sorry mess! Had the decision to go have been left up to the American public, I believe a majority of them would have said "NO!!!"  Pissed

I am sure the families of the troops are not going to appreciate that when they start running out of 5.56 and 7.62.

Isn't this great? I'm paying for a war that I don't even support. and he has the nerve to ask for more. Here's an idea Mr. Bush, why don't you pick your lazy rear-end off that chair, pick-up a gun and go fight YOUR war. Hundreds of Americans are dying everyday for a cause thats not justified. Looking for Osama Bin Laden is justified, Iraq wasn't. They were never a threat to the US. It's just the oil and a personal interest in Hussein. But don't despair, November is just around the corner, and things will change, that is unless Florida decides to screw it up again!

Thankfully we have some genuine Republicans left (like Sen. Warner) who refuse to kowtow to every fiscally irresponsible whim of the White House.

If you need someone to blame / throw a rock in the air / you'll hit someone guilty
