As young soldiers prepare to sacrifice their lives for their country, shouldn't the president have been preparing for this war that he wants rather than jumping into Air Force One and flying around the country? At taxpayer expense, by the way.

For those citizens who couldn't find the time to vote, there are no words low enough.
