    Sunday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump warned if the Republican Party isn’t willing to admit the 2003 invasion of Iraq was a mistake, then the party will be defeated in the upcoming general election.

    Trump said, “The Iraq war was a disaster. It was a mistake. We spent $2 trillion, thousands of lives, thousands of lives, wounded warriors who we love all over the place. What do we have? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Iran is taking over Iraq as sure as you’re sitting there. And that’s the way it is. We get nothing. They get the oil, they get everything. We get nothing. So it was a huge mistake. Whether people like it or not. and I’m the only one with the vision to have said don’t do it. And I wasn’t even a politician when I said that.”

    He added, “Something’s going to have to happen with the party or we’re going to lose yet another election. I’m not even doing it to win election, I’m doing it out of common sense. The war was a horrible thing. If we’re not going to admit that, you’re going to have yet another election where the Democrats are going to win.

    There's a difference between saying it was a mistake and saying "Bush LIED(tm)."

    I agree with him.

    Why should the Republican party commit suicide to protect the pride of the Bush family? Who the fuck are they and what do they deserve?

    Who gives a shit. If it gets him Democrat voters keep shitting on George W. Fuck that idiot.

    Go Donald

    That's funny... That's basically exactly what I posted yesterday. If the repubs can't let go of some of their stubbornness and arrogance, it's going to cost them the White House. Again. They've got to come more middle... Not double-down on extreme views that a majority of Americans don't share with them. The country is becoming more socially liberal. It's just a fact. If you want a majority of its citizens to elect your guy, you better get on board with that, and work with it. Standing on a taller soap box and shouting louder won't get the job done. How they don't understand that is baffling to me.

    The Invasion and breaking their stuff = not a bad idea

    Nation building and sticking around past 60 days or so = bad idea

    But will the American people learn anything from the Iraq war the next time a war over nothing breaks out?

    Nope.

    so creating a power vacuum was a good idea?
    not to mention that they could have finished the job in Afghanistan
