One year later, Kerry thinks the election was stolen?

2-1/2 years later several Democratic congressmen start to think it was a mistake to give Bush authorization to use force?

Rising suspicion that the administration manipulated intelligence and lied about WMDs?

WTF?

We all saw this, and much more, while it was happening. It was plainly obvious. It doesn't take a brain surgeon.


If they just had the mind to see things as they are, maybe we wouldn't be in such trouble today.

We pay these people to represent us, to think things out, to do the right thing. If we can figure it out just by paying attention from the outside in, there is NO EXCUSE for them not seeing it. It is not acceptable to let things slide while they are happening and "figure it out" a year or two later.
