Democrats Protesting Iraq War
I'm not arguing whether or not W lied. This is the same group of Democrats who voted for the war (before they voted against it).
The Senate vote sharply divided Democrats, with 29 voting for the measure and 21 against. All Republicans except Sen. Lincoln Chafee of Rhode Island voted for passage.John Kerry said this in the Senate floor:
Ahead of the vote, Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle announced Thursday morning he would support Bush on Iraq, saying it is important for the country "to speak with one voice at this critical moment.
With respect to Saddam Hussein and the threat he presents, we must ask ourselves a simple question: Why? Why is Saddam Hussein pursuing weapons that most nations have agreed to limit or give up? Why is Saddam Hussein guilty of breaking his own cease-fire agreement with the international community? Why is Saddam Hussein attempting to develop nuclear weapons when most nations don't even try, and responsible nations that have them attempt to limit their potential for disaster? Why did Saddam Hussein threaten and provoke? Why does he develop missiles that exceed allowable limits? Why did Saddam Hussein lie and deceive the inspection teams previously? Why did Saddam Hussein not account for all of the weapons of mass destruction which UNSCOM identified? Why is he seeking to develop unmanned airborne vehicles for delivery of biological agents?Since before his first presidential campaign, George W. has been portrayed by Democrats as a stupid bubba who can barely remember how to tie his shoes each morning.
Some how George "Bubba" Bush managed to fool so many Democrats. How did he do it? I don't know. But, why should I put my faith in a group of individuals who were so easily fooled, if they were truly fooled as they claim? Someone who is easily fooled is a fool. I'd rather not put my trust in fools.
