The most recent report from the Weapons inspector in Iraq takes away every excuse Bush has used for going to war there. Remember, the reasons have changed over time, each time they were discredited.
I guess poor George realizes he’s pretty much run out of new excuses he can start using, so he has to spin this report. So here’s what your President had to say:
- “The Duelfer report showed that Saddam was systematically gaming the system, using the U.N. oil-for-food program to try to influence countries and companies in an effort to undermine sanctions.
- He was doing so with the intent of restarting his weapons program once the world looked away. Based on all the information we had to date, I believe we were right to take action and America is safer today with Saddam Hussein in prison.
- He retained the knowledge, the materials, the means and the intent to produce weapons of mass destruction and he could have passed that knowledge onto our terrorist enemies. Saddam Hussein was a unique threat, a sworn enemy of our country, a state sponsor of terror operating in the world’s most volatile region.”
Read this carefully, because if you still think you should vote for this President, you are saying that we should send all these young American military people to be wounded, maimed and killed because some guy who no longer has WMDs might pass them on to someone with whom he has no ties.
George Bush shouldn’t be scoring any higher in the polls than Ralph Nader.
