Mitt Still Deluded About WMDs

TPM Cafe story:

This flagrant falsehood from Mitt Romney at last night's debate, flagged by Atrios, deserves a second look:

[I]f you're saying let's turn back the clock and Saddam Hussein had opening up his country to IAEA inspectors and they'd come in and they'd found that there were no weapons of mass destruction, had Saddam Hussein therefore not violated United Nations resolutions, we wouldn't be in the conflict we're in.

But he didn't do those things, and we knew what we knew at the point we made the decision to get in.

Republicans are more stupid than Democrats. Or at least their candidates for president must THINK they are if they continue to repeat these lies. And if there are any Pubs who would like to contest that statement, feel free, but make sure you explain it in the context of Romney's statement.

U.P. Man:

What are you saying he lied about?

The inspectors went in,they did not find evidence of WMD program.

Saddam did not show what he did with his previous WMD program material. Which he was required to.

U.P. Man:

Bet more Democrats believe President Bush had something to do with 9/11 than Republicans believe that Saddam did....

Lee Ward:

I don't know if I would take that bet, but it's a funny line.
