Excellent question!Why do we keep electing idiots to high office?
Most of Congress voted for the invasion, because like the public, they had been misled. Now Bush is using it against them, just like he is using it against America and the troops.
How was Congress misled? They had access to the same intelligence reports that the President did. Congress has committees to review intelligence reports and they all came to the same conclussions.

No they didn't.
I could not disagree more. Congress was always able to base their decisions with respect to Iraq on the same information that President Bush had along with historical data. It is simply now convenient to claim ignorance as their justification for supporting the Iraq campaign. I can respect those that claim to have had a change of heart and now believe that our presence there is counter-productive. This topic is ripe for debate but to claim to have been misled is an underhanded tactic that I had hoped was beneath even the hard left in this country.I don't think it's what he saw, rather what he portrayed to Congress and the American to rally support for his war. The end justifys the means.
