Elder and Coulter on Iraq

Larry Elder has a great column this week in response to Andy Rooney's "60 Minutes" segment asking President Bush to "finally flat-out explain why we have troops in Iraq."

Unfortunately, even though Elder's explanation is clear, sound and based on the reality of the situation, it doesn't matter.

People believe whatever they want to believe. Besides, "Bush Lied People Died" fits on a bumber sticker. The argument for the war does not.

Also, Ann Coulter points out something in her column that I bet you didn't think of. She asks the reader to consider this scenario:

Right after 9/11 if President Bush had said "Sadaam Hussein is paying homicide bombers and letting terrorists stay in his hospitals--we are going to Iraq to get them," everybody that was so gung ho about going to Afghanistan at the time would have said "we support it."

Then, if he had said, "next is Afghanistan because the Taliban is supporting Osama" they would have said "Afghanistan never attacked us! What are we doing there?" If you don't believe that would have happened, you live in the fantasy world the Democrats have created.

Plus, I needed an excuse to put up a picture of Ann Coutler.
