37. Because Bush was popular at the time, because an election was approaching
and because Lieberman's IWR was seen as taking a tough stand against Iraq that didn't get all hung up over wanting U.N. approval before the United States would act to protect itself.

I thought it was politics at the time and I still think so today. I don't think any but a few of the Democrats who voted for Lieberman's IWR would have taken us to war with Iraq using it but, as expected, Bush did.

And this is not only water under the bridge for me with Iran staring us right in the face now. Too many politicians can't be trusted to make the right decisions unless they are hearing loud and strong from the public at the time. Please add your voice at http://stopiranwar.com/
