Built on Guilt

"Suspicion always haunts the guilty mind"
~ William Shakespeare

I've heard about enough of the slanderous, borderline treasonous accusations against the president. Most of those throwing bricks at him were lining up to vote in favor of invading Iraq, based on exactly the same information that President Bush possessed. Many of them were even more outspoken than Bush in their claims about the dangers of leaving Saddam Hussein in power.

Suddenly, the critics would like us to forget their vigorous support of the president as we entered the war. We're supposed to believe that the dog ate their homework and that wasn't what they "really" meant to say. They were "misled." The truth was "cherrypicked." And these phonies wonder why they can't get the majority vote.

Read their own words for yourselves before rushing to any MSM-induced judgment against the president. In today's Opinion Journal piece by Norman Podhoretz, see what Bill and Hillary Clinton, Madeline Albright, Sandy Berger, William Cohen, Ted Kennedy, Robert Byrd, Carl Levin, Jay Rockefeller, John Kerry, and Al Gore had to say about the dangers posed by pre-war Iraq. It's a jaw-dropping stroll down short-term memory lane.

If you'd like to see the same hard facts stated less elegantly, but more passionately, check out Froggy Rumination's Veterans Day post on unpatriotic liberals. His bottom line is that these Iraqi war political turncoats are dirty, rotten sc--no, scoundrels wasn't the word he ended his post with. It's a very strong word, not a word I'd put in my blog. But that doesn't mean it wasn't the right word to use.

When you point one finger, lefty critics, remember that there are four fingers pointing back at you.
