Shoring up the left’s arguments

Saturday on National Public Radio’s “Weekend Edition,” commentator Daniel Shores offered a new theory on the connection between Osama bin Laden’s al Qaeda network and Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein: Whereas there was no original relationship, Bush’s aggressive rhetoric has driven them together.

So, according to Shores, Bush’s bellicosity has created a danger where none existed before. If Bush would simply have kept quiet about the dangers of mass destruction weapons in the hands of terrorists, and ignored Saddam’s development of such weapons, everything would be fine and dandy. The dangers we now face are all Bush’s fault.

They’d have never thought of it themselves, Shores implies - and now, if something terrible involving NBC weapons does happen, the libs can pin it on Bush.

Thank goodness, the American public is smarter than that - as proven November 5.
