The War in Iraq: Our Responsibility or Future Generations's Responsibility?

From this site:

"This country has many challenges. We will not deny, we will not ignore, we will not pass along our problems to other Congresses, to other presidents, and other generations." January 2003, State of the Union. "I also believe the role of a President is to confront problems -- not to pass them on to a future President, future Congress, or a future generation." February 2005, Florida. "... future Congresses -- not this Congress, but future Congresses -- are going to be confronted with some serious decisions about raising taxes enormously, or cutting benefits drastically, or other programs drastically." Q: Will there come a day -- and I'm not asking you when, not asking for a timetable -- will there come a day when there will be no more American forces in Iraq? THE PRESIDENT: That, of course, is an objective, and that will be decided by future Presidents and future governments of Iraq. Both from March 2006, Press Conference.
like adding to the national debt, it is not our generation that pays for our actions and our budget, but our children. Shame on you, Mr. Bush!

Dan!
I didn't know you have a blog.
I've always enjoyed your comments at the LDS linkup boards.
Congrats on the birth of your first child!

Yep, I'm Oklahoma Mike at linkup.
I am one of the 4 original main contributors at Unofficial Manifesto, but we've added a few more since we changed from our page at blogger and moved into the new wordpress format.

I just looked at your other blog and saw the pictures of Ava. She is indeed very cute. I think you and Jaime will be great parents.
