CONGRESSIONAL DEMOCRATS: DUMB OR DISENGENUOUS?

(1) The Congressional Dems NOW complain that they were misled by Bush on WMD - (as if Saddma's WMD stockpiles were the SOLE reason they authorized Bush to attack Saddam! In fact, there were 23 reasons in Congressional Joint Resolution SJ #114 - and only 3 had to do with WMD!). [HTML LINK HERE.]

But they saw virtually the same intel as he did, and - in fact - had MORE intel' briefings than the White House did!

(2) The Congressional Dems NOW complain that Bush broke the law and violated the Constitution by directly authorizing (without the FISA judge's prior approval) the NSA to intercept highly selective communications between "foreign powers" and phones and/or email adresses in the USA, even though (ACCORDING TO THE NYTIMES AND BUSH) BUSH KEPT THEIR LEADERSHIP AND THE FISA JUDGE REGULARLY INFORMED AS HE WAS REQUIRED TO DO BY FISA), even though he followed the letter and spirit of the FISA law.

Are the Dems disengenuous, or are they dumb? ARE THEY LYING NOW - FOR SHORT TERM POLITICAL GAIN, OR ARE THEY SO STUPID THAT THEY DID NOT UNDERSTAND THE WMD INTEL BRIEFINGS OR THE FISA/NSA BRIEFINGS!?

I think it's a little of both: the Dems are stupid liars.

Can I go with both: dumb and disingenous? Remember, these are the people who are too dumb to see the hypocrisy of whining about wire taps after supporting Saddam's police state in Iraq for years. "Too dumb to see their own hypocrisy" -- that's who I would describe the Dumbokrats.
