It's about time that Pres. Bush took on his critics -- the Democrats' mendacity as to the causes, effects and success of the Iraq war makes al-Jazeera look like the model of fair and accurate reporting. The question is, why didn't the president engage this debate months ago?
Meanwhile, Scott "Scrappleface" Ott hits the high points regarding the Democrats' false arguments:
“We had no pre-war intelligence,” said Sen. John Kerry, “History will show that none of the leading Democrats had substantial intelligence. Anyone who remembers what we did then knows that the president is making a baseless allegation. I think history will bear out my contention that we Democrats lacked the intelligence to make such an important decision.”
The junior Senator from Massachussetts said he continues “to faithfully support the troops who uselessly die for a lie in Iraq.”
“Our troops deserve to know that their elected leaders who voted to send them to war will remain firm in our conviction that we didn’t know what we were doing at the time,” Sen. Kerry said. “It’s important, on Veteran’s Day, to remember that our Democrat commitment to our military hasn’t changed.”
