so without the bogus 1441 argument, what do you have?

President Bush and his vice president conceded yesterday in the clearest terms yet that Saddam Hussein had no weapons of mass destruction, trying to shift the Iraq war debate to a new issue whether the invasion was justified because Hussein was abusing a U.N. oil-for-food program.

Bush's response was his first reaction to a report released Wednesday by Charles Duelfer, the CIA's top weapons inspector, that contradicted the White House's main argument for invading Iraq.

Ridiculing the Bush administration's evolving rationale for war, Democratic presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry said, "You don't make up or find reasons to go to war after the fact."

Vice President Dick Cheney brushed aside Duelfer's central findings that Hussein not only had no weapons of mass destruction and had not made any since 1991, but that he had no capability of making any while Bush defended his decision to invade Iraq.

"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," Bush said as he prepared to fly to campaign events in Wisconsin. "He was doing so with the intent of restarting his weapons program once the world looked away."

Kerry, emboldened by the report's unraveling of the administration's prime rationale for going to war, issued his sharpest indictment yet, telling reporters in Englewood, Colo., that Bush and Cheney "may well be the last two people on the planet who won't face the truth about Iraq."

Duelfer found no formal plan by Hussein to resume production of banned weapons, but the inspector surmised that the ousted dictator intended to do so if U.N. sanctions were lifted. Bush seized upon that inference, using the word "intent" three times in reference to possible Hussein plans to resume making weapons.

This week marks the first time that the Bush administration has listed abuses in the U.N. oil-for-fuel program as a rationale for war with Iraq. But the strategy holds risks because the countries that could be implicated include U.S. allies, such as Poland, Jordan and Egypt. In addition, the United States played a significant role in both the creation of the program and how it was operated and overseen.

For his part, Cheney dismissed the significance of Duelfer's central findings, telling supporters in Miami: "The headlines all say,'No weapons of mass destruction stockpiled in Baghdad.' We already knew that."

You are correct. I pay a CPA well to ensure that at the end of the year I owe Federal Income tax.
Besides that if I owe them it means that the government is not using my money interest free.

You can do it without hiring a CPA.

You are now making sense lily. Ortiz doesn't get it, never did, never will, nor does Obama. I agree with you. Obama will just be abusing his power again. Bush was wrong going into Iraq as well, but the Democrats helped him with that.

Right now, we have a clear case of no support for Obama, yet the twerp still insists on saving his own face.

Seriously, this insanity goes beyond partisan politics, as evidenced by senile fools like McCain supporting Obama. In fact, Obama's support is pretty much limited to "neo-cons."

The American people want nothing to do with the mess in Syria.

I don't think the USA has suffered from such a humiliation in foreign policy as we just have with Obama and the previous idiot the Democrats put forward (J "Heinz" Kerry - Lurch).

Nobody in the world community supports these idiots.

Post Turtle

While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old rancher, whose hand was
caught in the squeeze gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a
conversation with the old man.

Eventually the topic got around to Obama and his role as our president.

The old rancher said, "Well, ya know, Obama is a 'Post Turtle''.

Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him, what a 'post
turtle' was.

The old rancher said,'When you're driving down a country road and you come
across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a 'post turtle'.

The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the doctor's face so he continued
to explain. "You know he didn't get up there by himself, he doesn't belong
up there, he doesn't know what to do while he's up there, he's elevated
beyond his ability to function, and you just wonder what kind of idiot
put him up there to begin with."

Best explanation I've heard.

Or did he stop being black this week?

So, what now? Do we support the Pres or not?

Hey Libtards...

What is your moron president going to accomplish by using Cruise Missiles to kill civilians and innocent people?

Syria will still have the chemical weapons (WMD) from Iraq you said didn't exist.
