Cafferty: Message of a veto
WATCH "The Cafferty File": Dems & terror attack?.
What message will President Bush send by vetoing the Iraq war funding bill?
Bush's message isn't new. It's the same one he's been sending everybody since his appointment to the presidency in 2000. We don't matter. His opinion is the only one that matters, no matter how wrong it is. -Ed, Phoenix, Arizona

President Bush's message is clear. He is not willing to even talk about when we might get out of Iraq. I am quite certain many Republicans in Congress will be willing to talk about this issue next year before the election. -Nick, Alameda, California

Who the hell does George Bush think he is working for? -A frustrated Republican in Louisiana

By vetoing the funding legislation, President Bush will be showing his contempt for the American people, Congress and the Constitution he swore to uphold. -Mark, Lee's Summit, Missouri

Bush is sending the message that he does not care about Americans or our interests. He does not support our troops or the American people. He essentially paid billions of dollars to have Americans die, inflame terrorism, and make the rest of the world hate us with his arrogant foreign policy. -Eric, Post Falls, Idaho

Should lawyer visits with detainees at Guantanamo prison be limited?
We should shut down Guantanamo, bring its prisoners and their lawyers to America and begin trials immediately to determine guilt of alleged crimes. Those found guilty should be imprisoned; others should be set free, although we have no doubt made them enemies meriting our fear.
-Van, Big Stone Gap, Virginia

We are dealing with an enemy different from any we have ever faced. These criminals sacrifice their children as suicide bombers, and behead kidnapped victims, joyously showing these gruesome events on tape. What is important to me is security for America. If this means depriving terrorists of some of the privileges of a free society, I am all for it. -Joseph, San Diego, California

Shouldn't this be about how we treat suspects and not stooping to the level of our opponents? Just the idea of Gitmo is so repugnant, that our Founding Fathers must be spinning in their graves. The America I grew up in and was so proud of, no longer exists. -Ron, San Francisco, California

Is a missile defense shield for Europe a good idea?
A missile defense shield for Europe is none of our business. Let the Europeans fund and build their shield. They don't like us anyway. They can also argue about the shield with their European friends, the Russians. We shouldn't worry about Europe when we can't even begin to protect our own borders. -Eugene, Myers Flat, California

The whole world should stand with Putin on this one. It's just another case of the insane Bush military cabal running amok. This madness has to stop. -Dan, Santa Barbara, California

No, we don't need a missile defense system in Europe. We need to get the rest of the missiles and nuclear material out of Russia before they sell it to terrorists on the black market. -Marilyn, Germantown, New York

Here we go again... the "Star Wars" of Ronald Reagan's era that cost us billions of dollars with no results is being revived again. Don't we ever learn anything from our past mistakes? Apparently not, when it comes to politics and big business. -Dean, Las Vegas, Nevada
