cheney-bush flailing away

Seems bush and cheney are feeling a bit tender these days as more and more folks come to the conclusion that dear leaders have not been entirely forthcoming over the past 5 years. Especially with the respect to the Iraq diversion from the so-called war on terror.
Yesterday cheney comments:

Some of the most irresponsible comments have, of course, come from politicians who actually voted in favor of authorizing force against Saddam Hussein. These are elected officials who had access to the intelligence, and were free to draw their own conclusions.
The President and I cannot prevent certain politicians from losing their memory, or their backbone – but we’re not going to sit by and let them rewrite history.

And, John Cole notes:

It seems to me there are plenty of things to flay this administration about that you don’t need to start lying yourself. Or playing the tired old victim card.

Well, it is not clear that any of the criticizing folks are lying but one thing for sure: the senators and congress critters who supported the bushies grabbed the bait hook, line and sinker. They should all be thrown out of office.
Oh yea, lest anyone forgets bush’s real reason for wanting to take out hussein:

And, in discussing the threat posed by Iraqi President Saddam Hussein, Bush said: “After all, this is the guy who tried to kill my dad.”
