You prefer he stays with a cause that is wrong? I wish he would have flip-flopped about two years ago. Fucking conviction and resolve.
I trust a man with convictions who can do what he feels is right and stay with the cause. He changed his mind? I was under the impression that he went to war to topple Hussein's rule and find WMDs.
He took us to war with Iraq by drawing vague links between Saddam and Osama and the assertion that Saddam was a threat to us with his WMD stockpile.
At some point he dropped the Saddam/Osama link thing because only Fox News viewers were buying it. During this stage of his attempt to validate the war he only mentioned WMDs. Interestingly, during the last month he actually tried to return to the Saddam/Osama link because the debates weren't going his way.
When it became increasingly obvious that Saddam was telling the truth about disbanding his WMD program, he pulled out the brilliant "liberate the Iraqi people!" line. Over a very short time, he moved WMDs down in importance and depose The Evil Dictator became the rally cry.
Currently he's alternating between two lines:
We went to find the WMDs and I'm still convinced they are there - but isn't Iraq a better place without Saddam? Flip.
Our mission to liberate the Iraqi people was a brilliant success - see, no massive terror attacks on US soil since we captured Saddam! Flop.
Bush is counting on voters being complete idiots next Tuesday and buying 4 years of consistent bullshit.
