Oh, I'll bite you, all right. Like a black mamba going after a rat.<quoted text>
The vote was 70/30 (close) in favor of the war, and included “yes” votes from Senate Democrats such as Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, John Edwards, Chris Dodd, and Harry Reid. While the liberals claim that it was Bush who solely brought us into the war, they dodge the simple fact that authorization could have easily been denied!
The Democrats held a majority of 51-49 in the Senate, and could have simply blocked the vote. However, they stood with President Bush and overwhelmingly supported the war 3-1. If liberals are so anti-War, how come they never share blame for starting the Iraq War?
In your exhuberance to mislead, what you deliberately left out was the steady drumbeat of propaganda by Bush and Cheney, repeating over and over that Sadam had resurrected his nuclear weapons program and had the missiles to deliver them.
Those lies achieved Bush and Cheney's goal of stampeding Democrats in an atmosphere of panic. The WMDs were non-existant. But you can't blame Democrats for taking Bush at his word at that moment.
As for the breakdown of the Iraq Resolution vote:
In the House:
Democrats YEA 82 No 126
Republicans YEA 215 No 6
In the Senate:
Democrats YEA 28 No 21
Republicans YEA 48 No 1
Tally up the YEAs and the total for Democrats was 110 versus 263 for Republicans.
Hence, your side supplied over 2/3 of the pro-war vote.
Now go *suck* an egg, fuk-weasel.
