Democrats STILL Lying
Democratic Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi recently stated: “Iraq did not present an imminent threat to the security of the United States before he [President George W. Bush] began his war of choice.”
Let’s check the record shall we? . . .
Senator John Rockefeller:
“There has been some debate over how “imminent” a threat Iraq poses. I do believe that Iraq poses an imminent threat, but I also believe that after September 11, that question is increasingly outdated. It is in the nature of these weapons, and the way they are targeted against civilian populations, that documented capability and demonstrated intent may be the only warning we get. To insist on further evidence could put some of our fellow Americans at risk. Can we afford to take that chance? We cannot!”

Addressing the US Senate

Senator John Edwards:
“I mean, we have three different countries that, while they all present serious problems for the United States — they’re dictatorships, they’re involved in the development and proliferation of weapons of mass destruction — you know, the most imminent, clear and present threat to our country is not the same from those three countries. I think Iraq is the most serious and imminent threat to our country.”
Senator John Edwards (Democrat, North Carolina)
During an interview on CNN’s “Late Edition”

President George W. Bush:
“Some have said we must not act until the threat is imminent. Since when have terrorists and tyrants announced their intentions, politely putting us on notice before they strike? If this threat is permitted to fully and suddenly emerge, all actions, all words, and all recriminations would come too late. Trusting in the sanity and restraint of Saddam Hussein is not a strategy, and it is not an option.”
President George W. Bush

Interesting to compare the actual record to Ms. Pelosi’s delusions. Democrats must feel that we Americans are really stupid or just plain incompetent if they think they can get away with their lies in this day and age of the internet. It took me about 5 minutes to debunk her drivel. And Ms. Pelosi is supposed to be one of the leaders of the Democratic Party. Simply pathetic. Though, what is even more pathetic is that there are actually people who swallow all the Democrats’ lies, because they prefer to remain ignorant of the facts. Very sad. I guess we can call the Democratic Party the Party of the ignorant, because that is the only excuse anyone can have for believing the words coming out of the mouths of Democrats nowadays.
