Democrats: Dishonest On Iraq

RNC Chairman Ken Mehlman sent out this email today:
Dear ________

It's time to set the record straight about Iraq. That's why we've released this new web video, "Democrats: Dishonest on Iraq."

Watch, and you'll see Senator Hillary Clinton talking tough when it came time to confront Saddam, saying "I can support the President, I can support an action against Saddam Hussein because I think it's in the long-term interests of our national security ..." Or Howard Dean calling Iraq an "international outlaw." Or House minority leader Nancy Pelosi stating unequivocally, "Saddam Hussein certainly has chemical and biological weapons. There's no question about that."

Watch Democrat after Democrat on tape, reaching the same conclusion the President reached about Iraq.

Now that the politics have changed, those Democrats are trying to rewrite history. We welcome a robust debate about the conduct of the war. But for these Democrats to make politics their bottom line, abandoning their long-held positions when times get tough, sends the wrong message to the Iraqi people and to the terrorists. Whatever the politics in Washington, our troops need to know that our will is strong, our nation is united, and we will defeat this enemy.

Be a part of setting the record straight by watching the video on, and sending it to your friends and family. You are where this Democrat dishonesty ends.

The more the RNC and the president can do to get this case out to the American public, the better it is for the administration, as well as the Republican party. By hammering home the point of the Democrats' fickleness on the war in Iraq, the administration can ensure that the MSM does not misconstrue the truth of the situation.
