    I was reading that yesterday. At least you know his head isn't all the way up his ass on the issue. Doesn't change his mind about it, but at least he will understand if he loses.

    Did Huckabee and Ron Paul ever drop out?

    Why would Ron Paul drop out? Is there a Star Trek convention he's missing or something? It's not like he's spending HIS money.

    This is an attack on the issue and whomever on his staff thought of it, they need a promotion.

    Absolutely brilliant to head the issue off before it gets overblown -and- it 'forces' people to actually study and understand the issue instead of reacting to it emotionally.

    Also, it seperates him from Bush without insulting Bush. He's basically saying that if the need to invade Iran comes about that it'll be different from Iraq in concept and execution.

    Absolutely brilliant strategy.

    I'm tired of high gas prices; can't our military sweep across the middle east, with Exxon in tow, and pump more oil out of there? After that we could move onto Venezuela

    I thought he would admit there would be a 50/50 chance he would die of old age before his term was up if he was elected president.
