Chafee recalls his stance on Iraq weapons
04:57 PM EDT on Monday, October 6, 2003

snip......


The comments by Chafee, who was one of the war's few Republican opponents, and Sen. Mitch McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, came after McConnell confirmed that the classified section of the proposed U.S. budget for Iraq calls for spending some $600 million to continue the so-far fruitless search for banned weapons.

snip...


"I think we were all somewhat surprised that the only evidence that's been found so far is programs possibly, but not actual weapons." McConnell added.

He contended that "everybody, even those who did not agree with our decision to go to war with Iraq," believed Iraq had chemical or biological weapons.

Chafee disagreed. "I did have a quote in the paper in March of this year saying, `I don't think they're going to find any weapons of mass destruction,' " he said.

In a March 21 report in The Providence Journal, Chafee predicted, "We won't find any weapons of mass destruction of a grossly threatening kind."

2. Why the hell is he a Republican?
Why the hell is he a Republican? He voted against the overtime stuff, he didn't vote for the war, and he was extremely hesistant on the Tax Cuts I believe (In fact, I don't even think he voted for them, i'm not sure on this one though).


Chaffee, get out of the Repukes, and come to the Democrats. You know where your home is.

3. I believe he's R because his dad was R...
He's a good guy, regardless. Still, I hope he does pull a Jeffords.
