Was This Tom Carper’s Greatest Fuck Up?

Filed in National by on July 13, 2018

Remember when Tom Carper sucked George W. Bush’s d#ck on TV? (…metaphorically speaking) Thanks to the Harris campaign, people are beginning to recall how much, and for how long, Tom Carper has utterly SUCKED as a US Senator.

Carper’s voting record and ideology over four decades in office reflect the interests of his corporate funding base far more than his voting base, despite representing one of the most reliably blue states in the country.

In 2002, Carper was one of 29 Democrats to vote to authorize Bush to invade Iraq. On October 11, 2002, Carper went to the Senate floor in order, he said, “to express my support for our nation’s effort to address the threat Saddam Hussein poses,” arguing: “We cannot afford to engage in a high-stakes gamble of betting that this brutal dictator can be deterred from using these most lethal weapons.” Carper threatened, “If Saddam Hussein’s regime is unwilling to accept this level of intrusion, both he and Iraq must be prepared to accept the consequences, including the likelihood of a war they will lose.” He then proudly issued a press release touting his support.

Carper ended his speech by proclaiming: “Stripping Saddam Hussein, once and for all, of the weapons that would enable him to create havoc and great loss of life is a just cause.” As the invasion he supported was about to start, he said, “I wish Saddam Hussein chose another course — given up his weapons of mass destruction or sought exile. But the die has been cast.”

Beyond being simply owned by corporations, Carper’s bad judgement is bad for Delaware.

    We need a Japanese Kaiju movie titled ” All Corporatists Must Die!”. Or at least be defeated at the polls.

  2. This should be an ongoing series. So many fuck-ups. Don’t think it’s his greatest fuck-up since so many other D’s were turned into whimpering puppies on this. Could be Top 5, though…

    Has Carper ever apologized for his horrific fuck up in voting for the iraq disaster?

    I’m sure he was sorry for being lied to or some half-assed apology like that.
