Quote of the Day

“Being wrong about sending Americans to kill and be killed, maim and be maimed, is not like making a punctuation mistake in a highway bill. They argue that the president duped them into war, but getting duped does not exactly recommend their leadership. Helping a rogue president start an unnecessary war should be a career- ending lapse of judgment, in my view.”

    Exactly! I was marching in the streets of Seattle before this war began five years ago. I knew it was illegal and a mistake. I remember being very upset at Clinton and others for voting for the IWR. I remember listening to the eloquence of Robert Byrd on my car radio. If I knew we were opening Pandora’s Box then why didn’t Clinton?
