Then and Now

President Bush does not allow himself the luxury of sitting around talking about how he would have done things differently if he knew then what he knows now. It’s not leadership when you change “past” positions based on subsequent events or opinion polls and then try to rewrite history. Hillary supported the removal of Saddam in the strongest terms in 2002 and listed off the various reasons for doing so.. most of which had nothing to do with weapons of mass destruction. She did so in even stronger more direct language than she does in these clips. But now she wants to say Bush failed as a leader by acting on the same information she had when she supported the use of force against Saddam. The same goes for Edwards and Kerry. These people are who the Democrats think should be running the country?

These political opportunists can’t say they voted to oust Saddam based on the intel at the time, which in retrospect may have not been totally accurate, because the same would apply to the President. For political reasons they have to pretend they either never said what they said, or claim he personally misled them. They are not fit to lead this nation.
