Ok, I’m Now Officially Quote-Happy

“One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line.”
–President Bill Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998


“Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face.”
–Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998

“He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983.”
–Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998

“[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq’s refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs.”
Letter to President Clinton, signed by:
— Democratic Senators Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry, and others, Oct. 9, 1998

“Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process.”
-Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998

“Hussein has … chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies.”
— Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999

“There is no doubt that … Saddam Hussein has reinvigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies.”
Letter to President Bush, Signed by:
— Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), and others, Dec 5, 2001

“We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandate of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and th! e means of delivering them.”
— Sen. Carl Levin (D, MI), Sept. 19, 2002

“We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country.”
— Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

“Iraq’s search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power.”
— Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

“We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction.”
— Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002

“The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October of 1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons…”
— Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002

“I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force — if necessary — to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security.”
— Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002

“There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years … We also should remember we have always underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction.”
— Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D, WV), Oct 10, 2002

“He has systematically violated, over the course of the past 11 years, every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical and biological weapons, and any nuclear capacity. This he has refused to do”
— Rep. Henry Waxman (D, CA), Oct. 10, 2002

“In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members … It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons.”
— Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002

“We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction.”
— Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), Dec. 8, 2002

“Without question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime … He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation … And now he is miscalculating America’s response to his continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction … So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real…”
— Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Jan. 23. 2003

Hey, How About Another Quote

“If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction program.”


George W. Bush.


No, I’m just kidding. That was spoken by Bill Clinton in 1998.

Another Gore Quote

At an event in Las Vegas on Monday, 09/18/00, Gore declared potential breast cancer victims faced “a long waiting line before they could get a biopsy or, uh, or a uh, another kind of, what am I looking for, a sonogram or….” People in the crowd shouted “mammogram.”

Al Gore Quote

“A zebra does not change its spots.” – Al Gore, attacking President George Bush in 1992.

Leno Joke

John Kerry met with Ralph Nader last week and both sides of every issue were discussed. And then of course Nader spoke.

Do a search for waffles on Google and see what the first entry is 🙂

Who Let Algore Out Of The Day Room?

So I listened to that rant that Algore spewed today. What a nutjob this guy is. If I was a democrat (fat chance) I would be embarassed. Hell, I’m embarassed for democrats anyway. This guy is totally off his rocker. It was like watching Dean’s “I Have A Scream“ speech again. Here’s a photo:



He actually said this:


“The unpleasant truth is that President Bush’s utter incompetence has made the world a far more dangerous place and dramatically increased the threat of terrorism against the United States.“


What alternate universe has he been living in? There have been no attacks against the U.S. since 9/11. You think that’s just a coincidence? He also said this:


“Luckily, there was a high level of competence on the part of our soldiers even though they were denied the tools and the numbers they needed for their mission. “


Let me think, who was in office just before Bush that reduced troop numbers and cut defense spending? Oh yeah, it was Gore. Mr. Gore, can you honestly say you’ve forgotten your overall reduction of the military, not to mention the hancuffing of the CIA in such a short time?


I could take this speech point by point and refute it easily with simple facts, but I’ve got better things to do with my time than waste it on this left-wing fringe blowhard.

The Day After Could Die A Quick Death

A review of the film by Roger Friedman (who works for Fox, the same company that made the film) doesn’t paint a pretty picture. He calls it “a $200 million disaster film that is quite the disaster, indeed.”

More on Moore

Fred Barnes, the editor of The Weekly Standard, points out in this article that Michael Moore completely fabricated an interview with him. Moore used this supposed interview in his first book.


Kind of makes you wonder what else Mr. Moore has made up along the way…

Bill Cosby Tells It Like It Is

At the party in Washington D.C. for the 50th anniversary of Brown vs. Board of Education, Bill Cosby had this to say:


“Ladies and gentlemen, the lower economic people are not holding up their end in this deal,” he said Monday night. “These people are not parenting. They are buying things for kids – $500 sneakers for what?

“And they won’t spend $200 for ‘Hooked on Phonics.’ …

“They’re standing on the corner and they can’t speak English,” he said. “I can’t even talk the way these people talk: ‘Why you ain’t.’ ‘Where you is.’ … And I blamed the kid until I heard the mother talk. And then I heard the father talk. … Everybody knows it’s important to speak English except these knuckleheads. … You can’t be a doctor with that kind of crap coming out of your mouth!”


All I can say is he’s got a point, and thank God a white person didn’t say it, he’d be strung up.
