    Since Bush is claiming he got bad intelligience on Iraq, this probably lets Kerry and other Democrats off the hook of having voted for the war. If Bush was duped, they can imply they were too without looking bad.

    I do think the trust issue will become a part of the Presidential campaign. The Democrats can keep implying that Bush exaggerated the facts, or deceived Americans before the war without calling him an outright liar.

    The question then becomes, "do you want a President for the next four years you cannot trust to tell you the truth?" Not only is it a good campaign tactic, but it is a legitimate question. There is no doubt that Bush did exaggerate the threat.

    It would be a winner for the Democrats because even people who are glad Saddam is gone may reason that Bush has served his purpose and they may not trust him on what he plans to do next.

    It would appeal even to them.

    We had a President in office for 8 years that we couldn't trust one bit. I trust Bush much more than I trust Clinton.

    Yeah, lying about a blowjob is so much worse than lying to start a war.

    Cotton Bowl, I really believe the catalyst for going into Iraq was not the supposed faulty intelligence, but solely Dick Cheney.
    That's not an excuse for Bush, if anything it says he's not a strong leader.
    Cheney wanted to go into Iraq more than Bush in my opinion.
    I know Bush wanted to avenge his Daddy's issues with Saddam and Iraq.
    But Cheney was the ringleader on this in my opinion.
    Now as far as voting for a President who one can trust to tell the truth?
    I think voter turnout is low enough as it is, if you force that particular issue it will shrink to basically nothing.
    I think this election is going to turn on 2, maybe 3 issues.
    The three big ones will be whether we get Osama and when, the siutation in Iraq in terms of casualties and how many troops are in Iraq come this fall and gay marriages, which is the biggest social issue in this country since slavery.

    If someone lies about that, they'll lie about other things.

    There is no such thing as a little white lie!

    If that turns out to be true it'll prove one thing...

    The only things Democrats care about is power, at any cost!

    That will be shocking if true.:shock:

    If you lie to your wife and daughter you will lie to anybody about anything.

    Trust? I trust PRESIDENT Bush to keep the damn terrorists out of my back yard.
