Rick Santorum & the Missing (But Now 'Found') Iraqi Chemical Weapons...Again

Senator Rick Santorum was one of tonight's guest on Hardball with Chris Matthews. Matthews questioned Santorum on Bush's comments from today about Iraq and 9/11, as well as Cheney's past comments. Santorum went off on the normal garbage about Islamo-Fascists and so on, and then had this to add about us finding chemical weapons in Iraq:



This is really sad. This isn't the first time he has said this either. He was on Hannity and Colmes when he first said this. Here is the original video. Once Hannity heard, he was all over the story. It is funny how these two people are the only ones on national television that have ever made this claim. Don't you think if real chemical weapons were found that the Bush Administration and the republicans would be all over it?

At the end of the Hardball interview, Matthews asked Santorum what he thought about Hardball hosting a debate for his Senate campaign with his opponent. Santorum lashed out and went after Matthews saying how the debate would help his opponent because Matthews has a background working for democrats (as President Carter's speechwriter).



It's funny, because if Chris Matthews was a democrat (or even a real journalist), he would have disputed or at least questioned Santorum's claim of chemical weapons being found in Iraq.

I have always thought that most republicans were mentally insane, and Rick Santorum is helping me make that case. A United States Senator is making false claims about a very serious subject, and no one questions or criticizes him over it. It's one thing to parade your dead 20 week old fetus around for your family to see, but do you have to continue with the distortion of the chemical weapons that were found in Iraq? They were from the 1980's (remember the Gipper). Our depleted uranium shells that we use in Iraq now do much more harm than these old weapons could have done if Saddam tried to use them. So give it up you right-wing nutjobs, you invaded the wrong country! Bush was looking in the wrong direction; or should I say, no direction....
