Atrios points out that George Bush (still, at last count, confused about our prospects for winning the war on terror) is now criticizing John Kerry for having “voted for war” when Bush insisted, both when he asked for the use-of-force resolution and when he signed it, that the resolution was intended to avoid war if possible. (His actual words: I’ve asked for Congress’ support to enable the administration to keep the peace.)
As far as I can tell, every Democrat who’s ever tried to cooperate with George W. Bush has wound up with a knife in his back. That kind of treachery works for a while, but when it stops working it stops big-time. If he’s re-elected, Mr. Bush will have reason to regret this sort of behavior.
Of course, so will the rest of us.
