Dichotomies of a Simpleton
First of all, Bill, it isn't just a liberal mantra (i.e., that Bush's decision to go to war was based on cherry-picked intelligence, an inadequate understanding of the Middle East, a naivete' regarding Iraqi history, an idiotic notion that democracy itself can be prompted by external forces, an unrealistic expectation regarding nation-building, etc., etc.). In fact, I'd even go as far as to say that this war was NEVER, EVER popular among traditional conservatives. I mean, just look to what the dudes from Bush's father's administration (Baker, Scowcroft, etc.) have had to say about it, what Tucker Carlson, William F. Buckley, George Will, Pat Buchanan, Bob Novak, etc., etc., etc. have had to say about it. You're not going to accuse them of using liberal/ far-left talking points, are you? But seriously, though, for you to so consistently paint this issue as one of left vs. right, liberal vs. conservative, etc., its despicable, absolutely despicable. In fact, I don't even know how you live with yourself, dude.
