OK, let’s get this out of the way: I was utterly and completely wrong about WMD in Iraq. This Administration basically said, “Trust us on this one.” I did. We all know how that ended up. So now I will never be able to trust President Bush or his cronies again, certainly never on a matter of foreign policy, and therefore he must go. I would probably never have voted for the guy anyway, but probably if he had not lied about WMD I wouldn’t be actively supporting Kerry either.
I sent money to Wesley Clark earlier in the election cycle, and now I just sent money to Kerry’s campaign. Please consider putting your money where your mouth is too, or helping the campaign if you live in a battleground state. It’s not enough to sit around and talk about how stupid Bush is. That’s not the point. The point is that if you can’t trust your President not to lead you into a pointless war, he cannot be President.
