Bush Lied About WMDS, But Kerry Just Made A Mistake…
This is just beautiful.
On “Hannity and Colmes,” Sean Hannity was debating Rep. Maurice Hinchey (D-NY) and made reference to some quotes, probably these quotes:
“If you don’t believe … Saddam Hussein is a threat with nuclear weapons, then you shouldn’t vote for me.” — John Kerry, USA Today on 2/13/03
“I will be voting to give the president of the United States the authority to use force – if necessary – to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security.” — John F. Kerry, Oct 2002
You’ll notice that both of those quotes are by John Kerry. Well, Hannity used a little sleight of hand to show how hypocritical and dishonest Maurice Hinchey and the Democrats in general have been over WMDS in Iraq.
Here’s the excerpt from the transcript:
“HANNITY: I’m listening to what you’re saying. So you’re saying when the President told the nation that Saddam’s nuclear threats are a real grave danger to America and Saddam’s WMDs are a threat to America, you’re saying that George W. Bush purposely lied to America? Is that what you’re saying?
HINCHEY: I’m saying whoever wrote that speech gave false information to the Congress. Whether or not the President knew it when he gave the speech, I’m not sure. Whoever wrote that speech certainly did.
HANNITY: The only problem is Congressman, the words I just said to you were John Kerry’s words. John Kerry said that to America. You voted for John Kerry. Now I’ll ask you, did John Kerry give false information to America?
HINCHEY: John Kerry, I think, made a mistake and voted for the resolution —
HANNITY: Oh, he made a mistake and Bush is a liar.”
Exactly. The prominent Democrats who had access to intelligence briefings and came to exactly the same conclusions as Bush did were legion. But they “made a mistake” while “Bush is a liar.”
The partisan and deceitful people, like Maurice Hinchey, who are still calling Bush a liar over WMDs ought to be ashamed of themselves….
