Invading Iraq wasn't wrong, it was just he rhetoric


Never known as one to let the spoken word get in the way of intended meaning, Bush explained his use of language in the run up to the Iraq war.

With the NDP leading in the polls at the beginning of September, I started to prepare myself, for the very first time in my life, to vote for the NDP. Mulcair looked good enough for me, with some of the best lines about Harper's Government during most of his interviews, except that he would always add the phrase, "just like the liberals" to the end of it and I thought, if I'm one of those Harper hating, Liberal voters that you probably need to vote for you, why the hell are you insulting me with this partisan bullshit.
