George Bush's Wife Comes to Town; Irony Sets In for Chabot

From a Cranley PR:

Today, The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Steve Chabot will return to where President Bush first made the case that Iraq was a nuclear threat to the United States with a Bush fundraiser. (The Cincinnati Enquirer, 10/04/06)

Today, is also the five year anniversary of when Steve Chabot took to the floor of the House and pushed for war with Iraq -- warning of an Iraqi nuclear threat.

Chabot's speech was made days before we responded to bin Laden and the Taliban in Afghanistan:

“I personally believe that Iraq, and Saddam Hussein in particular, ought to be—I think he has given us more than enough reason to put him up there with Osama bin Laden in this war against terrorism. And if we are serious about ending, destroying and stopping international terrorism, we absolutely have to target Saddam Hussein… What I have said, and I firmly believe, is that the loss of life that this Nation suffered just a few weeks ago in New York and here in Washington, DC and in Pennsylvania, as terrible as it was, pales in comparison to the potential loss of life next time if chemical or biological or, God forbid, nuclear weapons are used sometime in the not-too-distant future in this country. And that is why it is absolutely critical that we prevail in this war against terrorism. And I believe Saddam Hussein has to be a principal target of that war. I would urge the Administration to include him in those people that we absolutely have to get rid of.”
