61. Well excuse me friend, but how am I supposed to react
When some Kerry apologist decides to fly in the face of reality an post such nonsense that a resolution entitled Iraq WAR Resolution was really only meant to bring about the renewal of inspections? I'm sorry if I offended you, but that kind of spinning is truly out there, bordering on calling black, white and up, down.

And no, Bush did not have the authority to start that kind of war, that kind of authority only eminates from Congress, and with the Iraq WAR Resolution, Congress, including Kerry, handed it to him on a silver platter. Yes, Bush could have used his emergency war making provisio, but if he had, especially on a pre-emptive strike, the hit to him politically, both at home and abroad would have killed him, with impeachment then being a real possibility. He knew he needed Congressional approval, and thanks to the spineless Dems who couldn't even fulfill their job duties, he got it.

I'm sorry if I'm sounding harsh and cruel, please don't take it personally. I'm just fed up to here with people buying into this bullshit Kerry apologist spin. Millions of people at home and abroad knew what was going on, and counted on their represenatives to do their job and carry out the will of the constituency. Most, including Kerry, failed in that most basic of job duties, and willingly and knowingly aided and abetted in the deaths of thousands. That was what the Iraq WAR Resolution was about, not inspections, not resolutions, but WAR. And now we are stuck having to pick between two candidates who fully and knowingly backed an illegal, immoral invasion.
