    Republican figures across the nation tell bold faced lies and within hours Fox news repeats them. It's like a mass conspiricy to misinform the public by repeating the same false information so often and so many times that those who know little about everyday happenings are totally screwed. It's always there but since the campaign began it's worse.

    Anybody among the Republican supporters who dares to mention the national debt has their head so far up their ass they'll never smell fresh air again. Reagan and the Bushes borrowed 80% of all this great nation has owed in 230 odd years and left an annual interest payment(which unlike the debt must be paid) of half a trillion dollars. It's like the bastards had pulled a Rip Van Winkle and just awakened from a thirty year nap.

    Any Republican who criticizes the current administration for it's foreign policy was no doubt continuing their nap when the Bush administration told 1000 lies about Saddam Hussein's "Weapons of Mass Destruction" so they could invade a sovereign nation half way around the world which had done us no harm, get 4500 young Americans killed and waste a trillion dollars. It's like they are in a hermitically sealed bubble and don't know shit from shinola.

    Yeah, that damned Dick Cheney out there by himself convincing America that Saddam Hussein was dangerous. Fucking Republican scumbag.

    Oh wait, he had SOME help, check out what all THESE Republicans said...

    "One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line."
    --President Bill Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998

    "If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program."
    --President Bill Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998

    "Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face."
    --Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998

    "He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983."
    --Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998

    "[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs."
    Letter to President Clinton, signed by:
    -- Democratic Senators Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry, and others, Oct. 9, 1998

    "Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process."
    -Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998

    "Hussein has ... chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies."
    -- Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999

    "There is no doubt that ... Saddam Hussein has reinvigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies."
    Letter to President Bush, Signed by:
    -- Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), and others, Dec 5, 2001

    "We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandate of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and th! e means of delivering them."
    -- Sen. Carl Levin (D, MI), Sept. 19, 2002

    "We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country."
    -- Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

    "Iraq's search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power."
    -- Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

    "We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction."
    -- Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002

    "The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October of 1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons..."
    -- Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002

    "I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force -- if necessary -- to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security."
    -- Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002

    "There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years ... We also should remember we have always underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction."
    -- Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D, WV), Oct 10, 2002

    "He has systematically violated, over the course of the past 11 years, every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical and biological weapons, and any nuclear capacity. This he has refused to do"
    -- Rep. Henry Waxman (D, CA), Oct. 10, 2002

    "In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members ... It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons."
    -- Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002

    "We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction."
    -- Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), Dec. 8, 2002

    "Without question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime ... He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation ... And now he is miscalculating America's response to his continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction ... So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real..."
    -- Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Jan. 23. 2003

    We know already. Everything bad is the fault of Reagan and Bush, and all good comes from the Dear Leader. I wonder if even Stalin was blaming the Tsar 30 years on.

    Many had the balls to claim Saddam was a bad man. Of course. At one time Saddam was our bad man.

    But of all the quotes listed above (and Rethugs have used these to justify their stupid decisions) which one of those people had the power to take us to war? And did take us to war?

    Who was the prime sales man, going on TV, used to justify the need to invade a country that didn't attack us?

    Was his name Bush? Or Cheney?

    Do you Rethugs EVER fuking take responsibility for your decisions and actions?? EVER?

    All the Bull Shit aside.
    I think Romeny has been ahead all along. If the polls show it as it really is it could cause trouble.
    The race shit again... The best way to go about this election and polling is in tact. Better to allow Barack to fall slowly and softly.

    But but but but Demscraps said Saddam was a bad bad man. Bad man Saddam'

    And I as a Rethug must invade Iraq because all those Dems said Saddam was a bad bad man.

    George Bush says; I gotta invade Iraq cause these Dems will come and get me if I don't kill Saddam.
    It was the Dems fault I invaded. Bad Dems.


    Has that become the Rethugs strory line now? Not that you rethugss can point to any success from your decisions.

    It's the fault of the bad bad Dems for making Rethugs go to war in Iraq?

    Us rethugs didn't do nothing. We didn't lie, cheat or steal. We are good guys. Them bad bad dems make us do stupid things. Like go to war in Iraq.

    And that's the Rethugs story and they are sticking to it.

    Of course Saddam Hussein had WMDs. He used them on the Kurds many times.

    Only a moron would think that he used them all and had no more.

    Only a moron would say that we didn't find any so there weren't any.
