Hypocrites, All of Them

Rush has lots of great stuff today. First, if Bush lied about the reasons for going to war, then the Democrats all lied as well. After all, they said the same things and actually voted to go to war.

Rush: Democrats Caught in Their Own Words---

All Saddam's lawyers have to do is listen to what the Democrats are saying and make the case that he has been unjustly removed, that his removal was all based on lies and a cowboy Bush out of control for oil and so forth. I mean, Saddam's got his case being made for him by the Democrats in the United States Senate. Now, who do you think is acting more responsibly or irresponsibly in terms of the United States and its prestige around the world? Do we really want Saddam Hussein echoing the things said by Ted Kennedy and Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin? Because it will happen. If his lawyers have half a brain, it'll happen.

Let's go to the audio sound bites. Here's the president. This is this morning in Panama City. He went down there to see the Panama Canal. He took a couple questions, and the leak case was one of them, and I forget, two questions. Here's the question on the leak case. An American info babe reporterette said, "Back in October of 2000, Mr. President, this is what you said: 'We will ask not only what is legal, but what is right, not what the lawyers allow, but what the public deserves.' So in the CIA leak case, has your administration lived up to this campaign promise?"
Read the rest.

Rush also provides us with Democrat Quotes on Saddam Hussein's WMD Before the War, including this letter, to Bill Clinton, "Signed by Senators Levin, Lieberman, Lautenberg, Dodd, Kerrey, Feinstein, Mikulski, Daschle, Breaux, Johnson, Inouye, Landrieu, Ford and Kerry -- all Democrats."
