A Bush in Dem Clothing

Sep 22, 2003

Howard Dean (ex-Governor) and Wesley Clark (ex-General) are both running for the Democratic nomination for president. Both are attempting to appear as the choice for people who oppose the war in Iraq.

However, at the end of their patented politicians’ double-talk, as they try to simultaneously take a stand and avoid taking one, Dean says he opposed the war because it should have been done through the United Nations–but now the U.S. is there, we should send more troops.

Clark says that the war was a big mistake by Bush, but he (Clark) "would probably have voted for it" in Congress–and now we should send more troops.

With "anti-war" candidates like these, Halliburton and Shell have nothing at all to worry about!
