On "The Situation Room" today, we asked viewers the following questions, and here are some of our favorite responses that we didn't get to read on air:What are the signs of election burnout?
You show up to vote a week early, desperate to have it over with.Michelle, Minneapolis, Minnesota
My wife starts barking like a Schnauzer whenever Bush's image comes on the TV. I have to throw her some Cheezy Puffs to calm her down.WB, Las Vegas, Nevada
The real sign of election burnout is when you find yourself more cynical than Jack Cafferty. Boy, am I fried!BD, New York
When you are motivated to vote early like I did today. I don't have to listen to it anymore until Wednesday. I have done my duty.Vickie, Macon, GeorgiaWho's responsible for the problems in Iraq: the generals or Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld?
Come on, Jack. That's not even a fair question. Of course Rumsfeld's to blame, but then again, the fearless generals who want to protect their retirement are as well. Take it from a former Marine.LaDell, Liverpool, Nebraska
House Republican John Boehner now owes our military an apology, and his statement was no botched joke. The top generals tried to tell Mr. Rumsfeld more troops would be needed for a successful outcome in the invasion of Iraq. Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld listened to only themselves.Jeff, New York
The responsibility lies squarely at Rumsfeld's feet. After all, the generals can't do anything without his authorization.Denise, Eureka, California
It's a sad day when the GOP blames the generals for their own failed policies. Why is this not a bigger story than Kerry's stupid comments? I mean, which is more insulting to the military: a guy who misspoke or a guy who is blaming the military for the failures in Iraq?Conner, Russellville, ArkansasIf the Republicans lose the election Tuesday, what should happen to President Bush?
Having always been against the war, I'd love to see him impeached, but I think it would be bad for our country. There's all the soldiers to help once they come home, families to help and heal. There's an economy to build that will benefit the working stiff. Then, there's all that celebrating to do, once the war is over.Carol, Boynton Beach, Florida
Use the same standards that were used to impeach Clinton. If that is done given the overwhelming evidence of lies, the outcome for Bush is a no-brainer.L., Thaxton, Virginia
Clinton's lie was wrong. Bush's lie was wrong. Bush's lie caused the American people to support a war that we wouldn't have supported had Bush told the truth. That was the point of the lie. 30,000 or 300,000 or 600,000 people (most of them innocent people just going through life and supporting their families) have died because of a war paid with our dollars in an effort that we would never have supported had we known the truth.Mike, Lake Worth, Florida
With all of our problems we don't need the distraction of an impeachment. We do however need the truth about this administration to become public knowledge. Let the court of public opinion rule in 2008 and let history take care of the appeal for the worst administration on our history.Vicki, Roanoke, Virginia
Bush will be left to explain his actions without the support of his henchmen in Congress. That will be more uncomfortable than Kerry trying to explain a joke!Jamie, Spotsylvania, VirginiaWhat do you think Iraq will be like if and when the war ever ends?
George W. Bush has made sure that Iraq is going to be a thorn in our side for many generations to come. Not only that but if you thought 9/11 was bad, wait and see, I can't even think what these people are going to do to us.Tim, Vero Beach, Florida
It will be virtually uninhabitable due to all the depleted uranium and damaged infrastructure, not too dissimilar from the Gaza strip. Interestingly, the Iraqi people were actually better educated than U.S. citizens per capita before the war - but they will have moved away. The war will end with us having 5 major military bases to protect the oil, and road warriors ruling the land outside those 30 foot high wallsBruce, Delaware
Nothing will change. The infighting will continue and the group that flexes their muscles will take power and overthrow the elected government.Chad, Minneapolis, Minnesota
