Dems lied, people died?

GOP Bloggers did the research to dig up quotes of prominent Democrats taking hawkish stances against Saddam Hussein and Iraq. Included in the quote fest are Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Ted Kennedy, Madeline Albright, Sandy Berger, John Kerry, Jay Rockefeller, Bob Graham, Carl Levin, Robert (KKK) Byrd, and Henry Waxman. Now if you are a Democrat who believes the anti-war mantra "Bush lied, people died," then you have one of three choices. First, you can take the illogical stance that the 'dim' President Bush is such a genius that he fooled all of your party's leaders going back to 1998 into thinking Iraq had WMD and was a threat. Second, you can also hoist your party's leaders on your petards for being naive rubes as to believe such a thing. Third, you can accept the fact that this was the conventional wisdom of both parties in this country and of the governments of most western nations, and that the whole "Bush lied" thing is a canard. Hint: A thinking person would choose number three, as the first two are more than a little nutty.
