  1. The Obama administration is FAR more honest than the prior Republican, GW Bush administration. Need I mention how Bush, Cheney, and Wolfowitz duped an American majority into the belief that Iraq was responsible for 911? Thus, they needed to invade for regime change; henceforth, the Iraqis would love democracy, and embrace America. Or was it that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction to take out all our allies in the Middle East? So, now, after the loss of thousands of brave American service members in this undertaking, we’re left with no counterbalance to Iran, and the ushering in of the “Arab Spring” — which has had mixed results — as the ultimate outcomes.

    Um, I’ll take some glitches with the Affordable Care Act website.

    That’s old news CMART. But I do agree “ we’re left with no counterbalance to Iran”, since Obama pulled all of our troops out of there after previously announcing he would do so.

    But here are a sampling of statements made around the time you referenced concerning Iraq:

    “Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face.”
    Madeline Albright

    “He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983.”
    Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser

    “[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq’s refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs.”
    Letter to President Clinton, signed by Sens. Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry, and others

    “Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process.”
    Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA)

    “Hussein has … chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies.”
    Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State

    “There is no doubt that . Saddam Hussein has reinvigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies.”
    Letter to President Bush, Signed by Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL,) and others

    “We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandate of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and the means of delivering them.”
    Sen. Carl Levin (D, MI)

    “We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country.”
    Al Gore

    “Iraq’s search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power.”
    Al Gore

    “We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction.”
    Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA)

    “The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October 1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons…”
    Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV)

    “I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force — if necessary — to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security.”
    Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA)

    “There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years . We also should remember we have always underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction.”
    Sen. Jay Rockerfeller (D, WV)

    “He has systematically violated, over the course of the past 11 years, every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical and biological weapons, and any nuclear capacity. This he has refused to do.”
    Rep. Henry Waxman (D, CA)

    “In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members. It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons.”
    Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY)

    “We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction. “[W]ithout question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime … He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation. And now he has continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction … So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real …
    Sen. John F. Kerry

    CMART, if you can provide a comparable list of Republican officials speaking this strongly “for” Obamacare prior to it’s enactment, then we will have a starting point for a discussion.

    More consistency from President Obama. Remember Auntie Zeituni. If not you can refresh your memory:

    Remember Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Barack and Michelle Obama’s pastor for over 20 years – yet they did not know his beliefs or doctrines when he began espousing them?

    Remember when President Obama said his grandmother was a “typical white person”?

    Remember the ‘video’ that instigated the death of 4 Americans in Benghazi?

    Now we have another “remember” to add to the list. That would be Barack Obama’s uncle ‘Omar’, whom we were earlier told the President had never met. Oops! Seems then college-student Barack Obama actually lived with Uncle Omar briefly-as in the same dwelling.

    How many people have you lived with, no matter how briefly, that you never met?

  4. 🙂

    Not sure what to think when left leaning Politifact agrees with me. They recently named President Barack Obama’s comment on keeping your health plan as it’s ” Lie of the Year” for 2013. I’ll let it slide that it could apply to any of several years.
