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 does it mean when an editorial in the Military Times newspapers says Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld "must go"?
Having served in the Army for over 21 years including a tour in Iraq, I believe that Mr. Rumsfeld should be relieved of his duties as Defense Secretary along with President Bush for placing us in Iraq. Military personnel generally will not openly voice their opinion but will commonly use the Army Times as a means to communicate and have a voice.Dennis, Lebanon, Tennessee
I enlisted in 1974. In my 15 years in the Army and since leaving honorably, I never recall all the military newspapers unanimously calling for the resignation of the Secretary of Defense. But then again, I can't remember anything like the Bush administration in my lifetime.Tanya
Once again the liberal press misleads the public. The Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine Times are owned and published by Gannett and do not speak for the military leadership. It is the press that keeps this war going. When you divide our people, you give aid to the enemy.Al (USAF, Retired)
Jack, What does it mean? Why it means it's time for President Bush to give the Rummy the Medal of Freedom!Doug, Knoxville, TennesseeIs President Bush a factor in how you'll vote for Congress tomorrow?
Yes, it is. Enough of this rubber stamp Congress. It's either take the stamp pad away from them now or allow them to buy more ink and stamp away in the future.Keith, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee
Tomorrow's vote is more a referendum on the Republican party than it is a referendum on Bush. Republicans need to be relieved of governance responsibilities in favor of leadership that will stand up to the current administration.

Bush will affect the way I vote. I am against the war, his administration and the people he put on the Supreme Court.Leanne, Ashland, Oregon
You bet it did! I am and always have been a registered Republican (I'm almost 50). For the first time in my life, I voted a straight Democratic ticket. Our household voted using absentee ballots so there would be a verifiable paper trail.Karen, Olathe, KansasWhen it comes to Iraq, how much does the oil matter?
It's all that matters. It was never about protecting the flow of oil, but impeding the flow. How else do you drive up the price of a commodity, except by controlling the supply?Brian, Dunwoody, Georgia
Dear Jack, Oil has always been the issue in Iraq. It was the issue in Lawrence of Arabia's time. It is naive in the extreme to think it isn't still the issue. But does it warrant the United States waging war in the gulf region? Decidedly not.Wyatt
How much does the oil matter in Iraq War? It was, is, and always will be the reason we sent all those soldiers to die. It ain't worth it. No way, no time.Nancy
