Scrappleface on certain Senator’s ‘Principled Opposition to the Iraq Resolution’:
Two Senate opponents of the Bush administration’s use-of-force resolution against Iraq say they will support the measure now that Mr. Bush has buckled under pressure, and given in to opposition demands.
Sen. John Kerry, D-MA, and Sen. Chuck Hagel, R-NE, each said they would support the resolution when it comes up for a vote later this week.
“Before, the president wanted to work with the United Nations to enforce its sanctions, and prevent Iraq’s use of weapons of mass destruction,” said Sen. Kerry. “I couldn’t, in good conscience, support that. But now that he wants to work with the United Nations to enforce its sanctions, and prevent Iraq’s use of weapons of mass destruction, I’m on board. We’re all glad the President has come around to our way of thinking.”
Kerry and Hagel to their anti-war voters: ‘The polls made me do it.’
