Earth to Becky Lourey: the governor did not invade Iraq. If you are interested in talking about the war, run for Congress.

I'm not interested in her views on Iraq. It's not relevant.

I believe Rudy Perpich withdrew National Guard troops from Central America in the 1980s.

Immigration is a federal issue too, but that hasn't stopped Slippery Tim from trying to use it to his advantage.

Lourey actually has been making statements about health care and fiscal policy to a largely uninterested audience for about a month now. So, it looks like she's now gonna try something juicier, and reach out to the one-issue anti-war voters.

With all due respect, if you don't care about Lourey's views on the war, then I guess I don't really care what you have to say about much of anything.

When a woman who has lost her son speaks out on the war, I will listen whether they're running for office or not.

Stop drinking the DFL koolaid and trying thinking these things through like a human being.

She may end up with my vote on the basis that any politician, and I do mean any, who mouths or mews any support for George W. Bush's War of Choice in Iraq will not get my vote.

I will actively work against any politician who even infers that they support the war in Iraq... the true threat to American safety and security.

Notice how Mark Kennedy now admits to being a Republican but refuses to articulate a position on the Iraqi War... even though we know his position is whatever George Bush tells him his position is...

Rhe anti-lawyer and I am a CPA Kennedy commercial is so lame. After all all the new ideas in the corporation I work for come from the Accounting Department... NOT! If that guy even gets 30% of the vote I will be assurred that 30% of the population are robots.

What Becky Lourey was stating is that the war in Iraq has had profound impact on our state, both economically and in terms of National Guard usage that weakens our own domestic security, witness what happened during Katrina.

Peace is an issue for all of us, it is a state issue. I completely applaud her peace iniative.

Ditto to what one of the other anonymous people said: "I will actively work against any politician who even infers that they support the war in Iraq... the true threat to American safety and security." I will take it a step further and say that any person who can honestly live with him or herself after voting Republican, following the George W. Bush Administration is a war criminal and destroyer of the middle class by association.

At this point I can honestly say that I don't believe there are any good Republicans. Fiscal conservatives ought to be voting Democratic if they have an objective bone in their body. And by the way, it seems that the Independent Parties have just become a scapegoat party for all those who are still Republican sheep, but are too chicken-shit and embarrased to align themselves with Bush.
