As the war in Iraq grows more unpopular with increasing number of Americans, Democrats in collusion with the liberal mainstream media, continue to politicize the war by distorting the facts.
Claim that President Bush lied about WMD in order to implement a grand strategy by neo-cons well before he took office supposedly aimed at using military force to install democratic regimes friendly to the U.S. throughout the Middle East.
However, the left has never adequately answered the following question. If Bush knew there was no WMD, why would he send 150,000 troops into Iraq since his lie would be immediately exposed by invading coalition forces and reported by a large contingent of media embedded within those forces?
Liberals also choose to ignore United Nations Resolution 144I,approved unanimously by the UN member nations. which clearly established that Iraq had WMD.
The liberal argument is discredited by comments by Democrats in Congress about the threat posed by Saddam WMD program put forth in a letter signed by Joe Lieberman, Dianne Feinstein, Barbara A. Milulski, Tom Daschle, & John Kerry and others on Oct.9, 1998
December will mark three years since UN inspectors last visited Iraq. There is no doubt that since that time, Saddam Hussein has reinvigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue and Saddam is doubtless using cover of an illicit missile program to develop longer- range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies."
"Theres no question Saddam Hussein is a threat and has chemical and biological weapons, as far as we know, is actively pursuing nuclear capabilities, though he doesnt have nuclear warheads yet. If he were to acquire nuclear weapons, our friends in the region would face greatly increased risks as would we."Wesley Clark on September 26, 2002

The arrival of the team - whose members were not weapons inspectors - marked the first time since the Iraq war began that representatives from the U.N.'s International Atomic Energy Agency returned to the country. "Inspectors showed there was plenty of evidence to suggest they had weapons," a senior official told Fox News, refering to intelligence that the Iraqis were moving things around in preparation for a coming war. " You don't move things around and disperse them if you don't have them."
It's what they are. It's what they do.
That’s what I was thinking. It’s like asking “why do fish swim.”
It’s the same reason they’ve put forward an America hating Marxist for the Presidency.
Short and to the point, Kent.
Bush made them.
Its my understanding that the final report of the inspectors does list approximately 500 weapons of mass destruction that were found in Iraq, after the US invasion. This begs the further question; why does the left continue to also lie about no WMD being found.
“Why Did Democrats Lie....”
Ultimately Democrats want power above all else.
They know the media is gutless and won't do their jobs.
Because they can.
And you can’t stop them.
The "Bush Lied" mantra fits the media template, and thus goes unchallenged. The good news is there are millions of us who see through it, and know the facts.
The bad news is, it might not be enough.
Because they're domestic enemies! Some knowingly, most all willingly!
Why DO Democrats lie (fixed)?
They are not extinct!
They lie because we (the public) let them.
To paraphrase Bill Clinton, because they can.
That the Dems lied is not a surprise—it is what they do.
The better question is: why didn’t Bush nail them with the truth? And where the h@ll were all the other Pubbie leaders? Too busy kissing Dem rear ends to be liked.
Our brilliant military victory over Saddam in three weeks time with minimal casaulties was completely overshadowed and minimalized by the Dems hysteria and the media echo chamber over the WMDs.
And the pattern was repeated: Valerie Plame/Joe Wilson/Scooter Libby/ Katrina
Let the Dems set the agenda. Don’t fight back. Don;t use the bully pulpit. Make nice with the Dem leaders while they sabotage you at every turn.
Never in the field of political conflict, has so much damage been done by such worthless and self serving jerks as the Dems, and so little opposition offered by the Pubs.
And now, shut up and elect the Democrat with the “R” after his name. Then go away.
The GOP will call you in another four years.
