Well Jeremy

Talk about revisionist history... This was just after nine-eleven the country was in shock, Bush's popularity was around eighty-percent. He was on the cover of time magazine and everybody was applauding his "Ground Zero" comments.

He gave a State of the Union speech declaring Iraq was building nuclear bombs and the CIA confirmed it.  General Colon Powel one of the counties most trusted figures went before the UN and stated they new were these facilities were. Was the congress supposed to ignore the Intelligence Community and the State Department? The bill said nothing about invading Iraq.

Bush had only been in office for a short time and nobody knew then that there would be an Abu Grab or Guantonomo, or that he would use the nations vulnerability to invade and ocuppy Iraq. Watch out... here comes another Red Alert!

Also in the debates Bush stated that he was against nation building. The US military was flying missions over Iraq every day and selected strikes on specific targets would have been relatively easy.

Saddam himself would not deny that he had nuclear weapons, probably because he felt it was his best insurance against invasion.

Under these conditions a bill authorizing the President to use force as leverage to force Irag to allow UN inspections was reasonable.

It was the big lie... as someone once said, the bigger the lie the more willing people are to believe it.

Obama never had to make this choice he wasn't even in the Congress then, so saying that you pick him because he didn't vote for the war is a little assinine.  He wasn't making speeches against the war or organizing marches against it. If he so noble and right about the war why wasn't he, at the very least, speaking out against.

The bill passed overwhelmingly, now if you had voted for Dennis Kuchinch that would be a different story he was there in congress at the time and did vote against.
