Suffice to say, you didn't prove a thing.
Bush led the nation to war on the basis of lies he told Congress.
Holding Congress accountable for the war is ridiculous. It's like you buying a car with a bad check, and then assuming you can retain your good name and ownership of the car when the check bounces.
Only a Republican would think this way.
That is the dumbest comparison I have ever seen. Congress wrote the bad check when they "bought the car" from Bush...and now you expect them to retain their "good" name.

my gosh, i believe louie has had his feathers ruffled...poor louie. posting time after time on the same thing...when no one really even cares...i care only enough to laugh, actually. ha ha and ha!

i'm going to be honest here louie buddy. you're the kind of person that's impossible to even have a discussion with because you so pompously believe that anyone that disagrees with anything you say is automatically wrong. not only are they wrong, they're morons! well, honey, good luck with that. it's still a free country (for now) and i can say and think whatever i want and you have nothing to do with it.

hey, i think the sky looks orange today. i think that the grass looks pink. and now onto something real. i think that louie must have had a very unhappy life with many people smacking him down to be the way he is in his posts. go see a counselor louie. all that impotent rage can't be good for you.:)

Show me some proof of what you say, otherwise it's only your hate filled opinion. Wanna play semantics...only Congress can authorize war...we are not and have never been at "war" in Iraq. Congress did authorize the use of force...if they in fact were lied to by Bush, the dumb asses need to be removed for falling for it...including the libs that voted in favor of it.
Senior CIA Analyst Paul Pillar states the administration cherry-picked the data.

Greg Thielman, chief of the state department's INR (bureau of intelligence and research, had this to say regarding the OSP:

"I didn't know about its existence," said Thielman. "They were cherry-picking the intelligence and packaging it for Rumsfeld and Cheney to take into the president. That's exactly the kind of rogue operation that peer review is intended to prevent."

CONTINUING, here's an article regarding a CIA agent who was dismissed for producing reports indicating Hussein was not developing WMD programs:

AFTER stepping down as Secretary of State, Colin Powell stated he was misled.

In an interview with American ABC TV news to be broadcast on Friday (US time), Mr Powell said "it's a blot" on his record.

"I'm the one who presented it on behalf of the United States to the world, and (it) will always be a part of my record. It was painful. It's painful now," he said.

Mr Powell spent five days at the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) headquarters ahead of the speech studying intelligence reports, many of which turned out to be false.

He said he felt "terrible" at being misinformed.

However, he did not blame CIA director George Tenet.

That's it, dummy. Keep ignoring the fact that the administration lied to Congress by which they gained a de facto declaration of war by deceit.

You obviously think approval obtained by fraud is legitimate. And that the party who was misled is somehow accountable.

This is a classic case of Republican ass-backwards ethics.

You can't begin to make a case that Bush, Cheney and company acted in good faith.

But you will. Why? Because you're a gas-blowing, unrepentant elephant.

So were they lying or cherry picking? You have to make up your mind.

I'm sorry if the dumbass liberals voted to use force on Iraq and that burns your buns, but the facts remain the same.

There's no difference between lying and cherry-picking. They amount to the same thing, which is a deliberate attempt to mislead.

I see you don't dispute my sources which make a strong case that Bush & Company lied.

I see you insist on being a slimey little weasel who refuses to acknowledge that Congress was misled into giving authorization for the war.

Which means you're a gas-blowing, hypocritical, morally shiftless Republican, from your hair down to your toenails.

Oh, and take note, slime weasel. Republican votes in favor of war outnumbered the Democrats by nearly 2-1.

Why is it that your posts always leave out the greater number of Republicans who supported the Resolution?

The answer is simple. It's to be expected from a GOP hypocrite.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

This post proves beyond question what a shallow, conniving weasel you are.

There's a reason the creators of the Simpsons made Homer and his boss Republicans.

I see you fit the Homer mold.

Incapable... unwilling... who cares? You failed to answer the challenge.

Making you look weak and unable to defend your points doesn't bother me in the least.
