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 if Republican Senator Chuck Hagel is a tougher critic of the Bush administration than many Democrats?
New twist: Maybe he's just saying what he thinks, which happens to have been what I think. It's not our war to win or lose. When are we going to stop demonizing American politicians and realize who the bad guys really are?Janice, Fort Worth, Texas
It means that Senator Hagel is a Democrat! Welcome to the real world, Chuck. Here, we are not delusional, and we're not evil.Ar, Fort Collins, Colorado
That he is casting out a net feeling the waters for a presidential nomination. He certainly could not run as a true Republican, nobody can do that anymore. Republicans are all becoming 'closet' Democrats now for self-serving reasons.Fran, PennsylvaniaWhat does it mean that President Bush is using taxpayer money to fund a private army in Iraq without the knowledge of the American people?
If my husband, a retired naval officer, knew that Blackwater trains and sends contractors, aka mercenaries, to Iraq, why is Congress and the press just finding out?Rebecca, Huntington, Vermont
What does it mean? It means the Americans need take back their country and their government and dismantle this quasi-dictatorship. Congress! Get off your butts and do something! Impeach! Impeach! Impeach!Eve, Louisiana
It means that there's something going on in this country right there at the White House which none of us know about including the House and Senate. A conspiracy? Did he sell our ports to the Arabs yet? How does India enjoy our technology? Are the terrorists still buying our armor and parts? We got a big problem folks and the beat goes on and on?Roger, St. Louis, MissouriIs it possible to train politicians not to stay stupid things ever?
No, Jack, I don't think politicians can be trained to not say anything stupid ever. Isn't that what they're for? After all, if they didn't say anything stupid, you and Wolf would be out of part of your jobs.John, Georgetown, Indiana
It would be easier to teach a dog not to bark!Warren, Easton, Maryland
While politicians obviously have the compliant nature needed for training, sadly they fall far short of the second required quality, intelligence.Mike, Macomb, Illinois
Everyone puts their foot in their mouth from time to time. Instead of worrying about the spin, all they really need to do is say, "Sorry that isn't what I meant to say." We need to be more concerned about what is not being said.John, Auburn, New York
The question itself is stupid... take a lesson.David, Anacortes, Washington
