Agreed. I am always curious why the focus is on Bush to the exclusion of the complicity of Congress. And for "touching them legally", if Congress has shown one strong ability in the last few decades it's the ability to cover their asses.Originally posted by macnpat,
Bush had a resolution. Congress approved it. Even if he deliberately made up the WMD's in his head instead of it being confirmed by th U.N. and the world that Saddam was using them for years, he could legally utilize that resolution. That's the reality.
You have to stop believing that Bush's cabinet are gun-wielding morons. They are slick, lawyer-types with a right-wing agenda. You can't touch them legally.
I'm not sure the record shows the election was a "slap" to the Democrats. 60-40 maybe, but not what the actual difference was.What you can do, though, is to drop the socialist rants and move towards the right to move more of their votes to the left. You start by not putting in a man like Kerry. He was a slap in the repubs face and the Dems got slapped right back.
As for people "moving" toward ANYTHING, this would mean getting a little closer to a moderate position for both sides and Americans don't seem to like that these days, regardless of WHO is running. The pendulum doesn't stay in the center position for long.
Until the country has another mood swing and goes for the left side.The more you rail against the right, the more you support the reason they are sought to lead this country.
