Spot On!

Paul at Powerline gives the dems a smackdown they truly deserve!

In an obscene attempt to obtain political mileage, the Democrats are claiming that President Bush is responsible for the outbreak of war in the Middle East. Howard Dean claims that the war would not have occurred if the Democrats had been in power because the Dems would have worked the past six years to prevent it. And Sen.

Great article, Paul hit the nail on the head. I cannot believe that the dems are trying to show the world that our country is torn by this event.
