Suggestions from DailyKos (posted by Michael from Chicago) on how congressmen (and women) can change their position on Iraq, even if they voted for the resolution:
So Mr. Congressman, you are really a hawk and for the war. Great. Try this:
I now believe my vote on the Iraq War resolution was wrong. I believe that America should go after the terrorists that attacked us on 9-11, capturing or killing every one of them. But it has now been amply proven that Iraq had nothing to do with 9-11 and I realize my vote to support President Bush's disastrous war of choice was an error.
Not a hawk? You voted for the war out of 9-11 hysterical patriotism? Try this:
I now believe my vote on the Iraq War resolution was wrong. In the emotion filled days after 9-11 I believed the America was vulnerable to any enemy. I underestimated the greatness of this nation. The Iraq war has not made us safer, and has had disastrous costs to this country.
Can't admit you were wrong? Fine. Blame it on Bush:
I now believe I was deceived into voting for the Iraq War resolution based on the Bush administration's use falsehoods, misleading and manipulated intelligence reports, and scare tactics. The Iraq War has proven disastrous for this country and I am disturbed that I, like many, were convinced under false pretenses to vote for it.
Just want to be honest? Bravo:
I now believe my vote on the Iraq War resolution was wrong. I feared the President's high approval ratings and looking weak on terrorism in the wake of 9-11. I regret voting for this disastrous war that has cost our country dearly.
