What Else Is In Scott's Head?

The blog site for writer Scott C. Smith. Some observations on the world we live in and life in general. And maybe some politics.

The Friday Night Fight

Round two of the presidential debates is upon us. I'm hoping to write up a debate analysis this evening, so stay tuned.

Tonight's debate will be a town hall format, moderated by ABC's Charlie Gibson. 15-20 members of the audience have been selected to ask questions; the candidates do not know what questions will be asked. I think it's safe to assume that Iraq and the U.S. economy will be addressed. Hopefully someone will ask Bush about Iraq WMDs.

Republicans still stubbornly cling to the notion that the world is safer with Saddam Hussein behind bars. Given what we now know of Iraq's non-existent weapons and weapons programs, I wonder how the world is safer. Maybe it's more accurate to say that Iraqi people are safer with Saddam Hussein behind bars. Well, maybe not safer right now (we seem to bomb a lot of wedding parties in the war on terror) but, hopefully, eventually. Lacking WMDs, I have to wonder exactly how Saddam Hussein was a threat to the world. It's a question for Bush to answer; not that he will. The words "Bush" and "responsibility" have never been used in the same sentence.
