Mark Kirk is very bipartisan, in the way that he'll gladly blame republicans for his own mistakes:
Kirk: Bush administration lied about Iraq
Oct. 27, 2010, 5:46 p.m. PDT
CHICAGO (AP) — Republican Mark Kirk says the Bush administration lied to him about the evidence for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
Kirk voted to invade Iraq and said he was morally certain Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.
But in a debate Wednesday, the U.S. Senate candidate said he was given false information in a briefing by the deputy director of the Central Intelligence Agency under President George W. Bush.
Kirk says he "absolutely" believes he was lied to.
Kirk faces Democrat Alexi Giannoulias (jeh-NOO'-lee-us) in a tight race for the Senate seat once held by President Barack Obama.
Why is this coming up now? Because Kirk needs someone to blame for his Iraq vote, and it ain't gonna be himself. Wicked, WICKED Bush!
But no hard feelings toward the Bush administration people.
Kirk is getting a financial boost from two groups backed by GOP guru Karl Rove. The groups have spent about $4.6 million on the race and helped finance ads against Giannoulias, according to the Sunlight Foundation, a nonpartisan Washington-based watchdog group that tracks campaign finance numbers.
Now, a special message for Field Marshall Mark Kirk:
You know, Mark, Iraq was a big deal. Being lied to is a big deal. But not a peep of complaint from you. Where were YOU all these years?
You let the fiasco of Iraq go on for years and years, without complaint, voting a trillion dollars of out of pocket to fund it, watching our people die, and then pull this "lied to me" stuff out of your butt because Bush is in the rear view mirror. But even then, it doesn't explain why you CONTINUED to let Bush have his way after it was clear there were not WMD. If you were lied to, Mark, you decided you'd rather let us have a lying republican run the show unchallenged than speak up.
Then you let Karl, the jagoff who used the war to win republican congressional majorities, pull your strings because what's really important isn't who lied to who, but getting money so you can get promoted to the next position where you'll screw up even bigger.
You aren't fit for high office.
