‘I don't agree with his stance’:
One of those rare instances when U.S. Rep. Patrick Kennedy
actually sounds intelligent. Patrick Kennedy on Iraq and his father’s criticism of President Bush: “‘I don't agree with his (Ted’s) stance. ... (Saddam Hussein had) the worst track record of any international leader in the history of the U.N. ... I believe that the U.N. needs to be a viable international organization and the only way it is viable is if its proclamations and resolutions are enforced. ... I think the country is much safer off without Saddam Hussein. ... I do agree with my dad on his criticism that the president didn't involve the international community and didn't have an endgame strategy.” ...
Hmmm. When Patches adequately articulates your views -- supporting the war and post-war efforts, while remaining miffed at the clumsy and ultimately damaging way the president handled pre-war diplomacy and the post-war diplomatic flip-flops -- then you know it’s time to throw in the rhetorical towel and stop the Hub Blog rants on the issue.
