Should we trust the Dems with the future of our country...?

i'm glad to know that there are other people thinking like this...
At a time in early 2003 when the Iranian people were looking for a more democratic government, Bush and Congress aided and abetted by many Democrats put the blinders on and cheered mightily as Bush called Iraq and Iran part of the "Axis of Evil." Many of them knew better and capitulated to the political climate at the time. What a monumental blunder for our country and the rest of the world. Anyone who voted for that war should have the good conscience to apologize to the nation and the world.


It is noteworthy that those Democrats with presidential aspirations including Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Evan Bayh, Joe Biden, John Edwards, and Joe Lieberman all voted for the resolution. It is very disheartening to know that the field of Democrats with presidential ambitions in the 2002 Senate all voted for the resolution. Whether it was by design or political expediency, these Democrats need to explain their vote before they have the audacity to expect us to ever trust them again with the future of our country.

but let me emphatically say that it's NOT just the iraq vote that requires an explanation and an apology... no, no, indeed... it's also for sitting on the sidelines while bush and his criminal posse crapped repeatedly on the u.s. constitution, voided the geneva convention, revoked habeas corpus, practiced extraordinary rendition and interrogation torture techniques, lied about nearly everything, and generally took our country to hell in a handbasket... what's even worse is that the war is still going on along with all the rest of bushco's nefarious actions, and we're STILL not hearing them speak out, certainly not the way they NEED to be speaking out...
