I think Al Gore was the only Democrat Senator to vote for Gulf War I.

Standing Against Saddam — Then & Now
Posted Oct. 8, 2002
By Zoli Simon
Published: Tuesday, October 15, 2002
With President George W. Bush reaching out to leaders of Congress for their support in the ongoing public-diplomacy battle to get the legislative branch on board for a war against Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, some constituents are finding it useful to consider the way their current members of Congress voted a decade ago, in 1991, on a resolution authorizing the use of force against Saddam in the first gulf war.

A few Democrats, such as the hawkish Joseph Lieberman of Connecticut and the moderate John Breaux of Louisiana, voted for the resolution. Then-Sen. Al Gore of Tennessee traded his "aye" vote to Republican leader Bob Dole of Kansas for a prime-time spot in the televised debate.

Several prominent senators still on Capitol Hill voted against the 1991 gulf war resolution, including Sens. Joseph Biden (D-Del.), Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.), Carl Levin (D-Mich.), Tom Daschle (D-S.D.), Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) and Republican Chuck Grassley of Iowa. Newly minted candidate for senator from New Jersey Frank Lautenberg, then a senator, also voted against the resolution.

The several prominent House members voting against going after Saddam include now-Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), and Clintonistas Leon Panetta and Norman Mineta — Mineta being the Democratic Bush transportation secretary who believes that former Veeps, retired generals and 5-year-old girls should receive the same amount of scrutiny at airports as young Muslim males from the Middle East, lest the authorities engage in profiling.

NAACP administrator Kweisi Mfume, proud homosexual Barney Frank, Minority Leader Dick Gephardt and Iraq-visiting jihadi-apologist David Bonior, all Democrats, also voted against using force to drive Saddam from Kuwait. Now-Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) similarly cast his vote against teaching Saddam a lesson. He was in the company of New Mexico gubernatorial-wannabe Bill Richardson and New York Rep. Charley Rangel. They were joined by Daschle protégé Tim Johnson and radical leftist Ron Dellums in their vote against taking on the brutal dictator of Baghdad. Last, but not least, Saddam-apologist Jim McDermott, who recently visited Iraq and questioned the credibility of President Bush, while placing his trust in Iraqi assurances, also voted against the resolution to use force.

Below is a list of U.S. senators and representatives* who voted against the 1991 gulf war resolution. It will be interesting to see how they vote just before an election, with polls showing overwhelming U.S. support for war to destroy Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction and force a regime change in Iraq.

Clearly, you don't know FR lingo. I am interested in how the Rats (the Democrats) voted.

Not sure why Adobe's Acrobat Reader has anything to do with it. I am considering researching fees. Try here.

Thank you so much-- comparing the list of those who voted for the War and those who didn't vote for the 87 billion is explosive. Kerry and Edwards are sickos--the fact that either of them are considered credible candidates is just grotesque.

You are very welcome and I think a great thing about FReepers is the drive to go back to the sources and derive their own conclusions.

The Dems (mostly) have a problem with their past statements and votes and their current Bush lied and the war was unjustified rhetoric. Unfortunately, noone is beating them up for it.

The thing that is most astounding to me is that more Rats voted against the war than voted against the 87 billion. (i am Happy about that) Clearly, the Rats that voted against the War still felt obligated to support the troops, as they should. The thing that ticks me off is that the only two who voted for the War and against the money are Kerry and Edwards (lautenberg doesn't count because he wasn't in the Senate in 02 to vote for the War) and that makes Kerry and Edwards world class pieces of crap.
