Democrats voted for the war, too

A recent letter to the editor from a local liberal mentioned “George Bush’s illegal invasion of Iraq.”

Just for the record, a number of prominent Democrats cast their votes in favor of the invasion, such as, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Charles Schumer, Harry Reid, Christopher Dodd, Tom Daschle, Evan Bayh, John Kerry and Hillary Clinton. Whether one agrees or disagrees with the decision to invade Iraq, it’s important to note that a number of liberals did support President Bush’s decision. Thus, one can conclude that many from the “left” were in agreement with Bush on his “illegal invasion” decision. It is critical to set the record straight on such an important matter.
