Political Comments

What is with these people?

1) Rudy Giuliani says that supporting Kerik was a mistake? Does that mean he thinks he shouldn't have supported him, or that more nebulous "oops I got caught" mistake?

2) Was reading an interview of Bill Richardson. It was going along nice until he answered the "why did you vote for the Iraq war in Congress but don't support it now" question with [something like] "it was a mistake to support the war, I did it to support the troops." WHAT? I support the troops so I'm going to put them in peril? Just a calculated, disrespectful lie. No sale, clown.

anon- now you've made me do work.

The interview was in the Dec 2007 issue of Playboy magazine. The quote:

"When we invaded I said I supported the invasion in order to support the troops. At the time, I felt it was the best thing. As I look back, it was a mistake. At the time, however, I was making public statements and wasn’t participating in the decision to invade. The president should have gone to the UN and used diplomacy, but I didn’t push hard enough. I should have pushed harder for diplomacy. But remember, we were also operating on limited information. At the time, I thought, I don’t have all the intelligence; Bush says Saddam has weapons of mass destruction. However, I never bought the Al Qaeda link. So it was a mistake."

That's a lot of backpedalling regardless.
