There are two main reasons why we must defeat George W. Bush on Nov. 2: Iraq and the economy.
No less a noted figure than former Republican congressman Joe Scarborough recently said, "We are in real economic trouble in this country today." The evidence in this statement is clear and present and cannot be denied.
And what a terrible mess Bush has us in with his illegal war in Iraq. A war that he immediately began planning after 9/11, with absolutely no evidence whatsoever that Iraq was involved. And the Bush fanaticism over his war has cost this nation dearly. Mr. Bush has offered up no less than 23 different rationales for the Iraq war. His two main rationales for it, WMDs and an al-Qaida connection, have been proven completely false. He has misused authority to use force. He has displayed colossal failure in judgment. His policy in Iraq has been plagued with incompetence. Bush has over-promised and badly under-performed.
