Dick Morris: ‘We Went Into Iraq At The Invitation Of The Government, Not As An Invasion’»

On Fox News’ Hannity & Colmes tonight, conservative pundit Dick Morris tried to attack Barack Obama for being inexperienced on foreign policy, but in doing so, only managed to demonstrate his own idiocy. Morris argued that Joseph Biden would be a good vice presidential selection for Obama because Obama “does not know anything” about foreign policy.

To back up this claim, Morris asserted that Obama made a major mistake this week when he referenced the U.S.’s invasion of Iraq in the context of discussing Russia’s incursion into Georgia. Obama said, “We’ve got to send a clear message to Russia and unify our allies. They can’t charge into other countries. Of course it helps if we are leading by example on that point.” Asked by Alan Colmes what is wrong with Obama’s statement, Morris explained:

Where he’s wrong is that we went into Iraq at the invitation of the government, not as an invasion.

Colmes quickly rebutted him, stating, “We went into Iraq to remove Saddam Hussein.” Morris backtracked for a moment and said, “We are in Iraq now at the invitation of the government.” But seconds later, Morris repeated his false assertion:

We’re in Iraq as the result of a democracy asking for us to come in there. It’s not an invasion. It’s not a takeover. We’re not trying to annex Iraq.

Colmes again explained, “We went into Iraq originally — not at the invitation of Saddam Hussein’s government.” Watch it:

During the segment, Morris criticized Obama for “drawing a metaphor” between Georgia and Iraq. Colmes responded by noting it was John McCain who, despite having supported the Iraq invasion, made the bewildering statement that, “In the 21st century, nations don’t invade other nations.” “Isn’t there a little disconnect there?” Colmes asked a confused Morris.


Dick Morris is a toe sucker/suckee(?) & a FOX NEWS commentator. Only nutlogs like Sean Hannity & the nutlogs who believe what Sean Hannity says believe what Dick Morris says.

He's why we need the return of the fairness doctrine. We need to know who sucked who's toes so we can have equal time alotted for the point-of-view of the opposite position.

No longer can we allow only toe suckers & not people who get their toes sucked by prostitutes to monopolize the airwaves. We need fair & balanced toe sucking news & commentary. This is America, dammit!

"The Daily Telegraph reported that in order to impress the woman, Sherry Rowlands, Morris invited her to listen in on conversations with the President. The Telegraph also alleged that Morris had a preference for "toe-sucking and dominance," and that he regaled Rowlands with a version of "Popeye the Sailor Man," performed in his underpants."
