2. Here's your mirror...From MWO

>>>>>
Fortunately, after the Democrats succeeded in formulating a coherent manner in which to clarify legitimate, complex positions media whores might otherwise succeed in painting as "inconsistencies" (Mickey Kaus still tries, God bless him), most American voters now "get it."

Nevertheless, wingnuts, who tend not to be the sharpest knives in the drawer and who become even less hinged when frightened, will fail to distinguish between a "resolution" and a "war" - and are attempting to paint comments by four-star-General Clark and war hero Senator Kerry as inconsistent.

btw...Dean supported Bush on Yucca Mt. and Sierra Blanca. He also supported Bush OVER Gore and Kerry when asked about their criticisms of Bush's military strategy in July, 2002 on MTP. Of course, that's when he was still running from the "Republican wing of the Democratic party."

4. Oh, I see...
....better tell those soldiers dying that they're not there fighting a war, they're fighting a resolution.

Kerry signed the blank check. Calling do-overs or 'oopsies' will not suffice.

Take your McSenator and try again.

13. Do you plan to go to Congress and refuse to negotiate
to get the better deal when it falls on you to do so?

Do you plan to be derelict of duty when faced with the choice of giving Bush the REAL blank check he wants or getting that better deal?

Would it have pleased you more if NO Democratic lawmaker negotiated and Bush NEVER went to the UN with his evidence (which helped sink his credibility now), put inspectors back in, and allowed Bush to bomb Syria and Iran after the fall of Baghdad?

18. Iraq resolution had nothing to do with the invasion
The resolution was about getting leverage with Saddam, to get inspectors back into the UN. Based on the evidence, the Democrats who voted in favor of the Iraq resolution did right thing. Bushco alone is responsible for misleading the congress and the American people.

Oh and while we're on the topic, the self proclaimed conservative Dean was skiiing while many more died in Vietnam, while many protested against the same war. Dean skiied, people died.

14. What does that have to do with MWO?
Because MWO mocks those who don't understand the difference between a resolution and war?

Mocking Kerry is good for.....?
