Hey, about those WMD's....


You Bush-rah-rah types can say all you want to spin this war and Bush's lead-up to it...

But the fact remains that Your Man stood in front of our nation and said that our boys would have to go in harms way because Saddam Hussein with his WMD's posed an imminent threat to the United States.

The fact remains that Your Man appointed his own team of weapons investigators to comb Iraq.

So what of that team's leader? He's quitting. He says there are no WMD's to be found.

Now, I can't tell you how many times I Bush apologists saying "So what if they don't find any WMD's? That doesn't matter. All that matters is that we got Saddam. You liberals need to move on and get a life."

To them I have this: IT DOES MATTER. Your people tried to impeach a president for lying about an extra-marital affair. Your people spent A LOT of time and money on that deal.

But, Your Man's lie has cost over 500 Americans and 8,000 Iraqis their lives. Your Man's lies have disrupted families across the nation who find mom or dad on extended deployements (and with dangerous duty pay cut). Your Man billed himself as a uniter, not a divider. But Your Man lies now has one half of the country accusing the other half that questions Your Man's actions of being unpatriotic. Your Man's lies have resulted in how many billions of extra expenditures that weren't in the budget? How large of a debt burden is Your Man leaving to my kids? Your Man's lies found a way for his buddies to make a lot of money.

It does matter.
