Botched war, flooded city, you really can't get much worse then that.

    It took 6 years, but at least people are finally changing their minds.
    The data given to him AT THE TIME and presented by Colin Powell indicated that there were WMD's. Also, Saddam Hussein and the Iraqi government were not cooperating with weapons inspectors. Resolutions were passed, by the UN, stating that they would go after Iraq if they failed to comply. Iraq did fail to comply---multiple times. WMD's were just ONE of a long list of reasons to go to war. If it were the ONLY reason, then, yes, I would agree that that's silly. However, the fact is, WMD's were NOT the only reason for a call to war.

    Also, Congressional approval is needed to go to war, as per the Constitution. Approval was granted, which included votes from many Democrats, who were presented with the same information given to Bush.

    Also, Bush had higher grades in college than John Kerry or Al Gore.

    Iraq had very little to nothing concerning this year's election. The GOP lost it themselves by selling out, expanding government...and in general, being politicians.
