On Sunday, Democrat Senator Carl Levin was on Fox News Sunday and was questioned by Tony Snow and Brit Hume in this transcript. Hume and Snow brought out the essence of the dishonesty and confusion of Democrat opposition to President Bush's policies. Read the transcript to see just how stupid and dishonest, sometimes both at once, Senator Levin is.

Here's a section where Carl Levin, asked if inspections can succeed absent Iraqi cooperation, misrepresents the whole point of Resolution 1331 and misrepresents what Hans Blix has said and ducks the question. All at once:

HUME: Not even Hans Blix believes that they can succeed, absent a cooperative government.
LEVIN: I disagree with you. I talked to Hans Blix for an hour last week. Hans Blix wants a cooperative government. Obviously, we want them to cooperate. But inspections are relevant. They're highly relevant. We ought to be supporting them.
And it's amazing to me that we have not given the inspectors the information that we have. And I want to be very precise on this. We've only given the inspectors a small percentage of the suspect sites.

No wonder the Democrats can't even appear serious on foriegn policy, they have blithering idiots like Levin as their leadership.

Here, see Sen. Levin redefine english words:

SNOW: At this point, the charge of unilateralism seems interesting, because we now have 18 European nations on the record saying they support the United States, three on record saying they have qualms. It appears that we've got the majority of Europe on our side. A number of our allies now in the region, including Jordan and Turkey, seem to be on our side as well.
So it certainly no longer is fair to say the administration is acting unilaterally, is it?
LEVIN: The way the word "unilateral" is used means without the authority specifically of the U.N. to use military force. That's the way the term "unilateral" is used, because that U.N. authority makes a big difference.

In other words, if the entire world supported our invasion of Iraq, except France ( which has a Security Council veto ), Carl Levin would claim that we, not France, were acting "unilaterally" by his convoluted definition.
