What were your feelings as the war began three years ago?
I saw little evidence that linkedal Qaeda and 9/11 with Iraq. I didn't trust the us-versus-them mentality that was fueling the war.
Have your feelings changed in the three years since? At first I blamed the war on a conspiracy-type thing, but now I think Bush actually believes that what he's doing is right.
How is the presidentdoing overall? He's doing exactly the opposite of what needs to happen across the board.
Will the war and Bush's low ratings affect the upcoming elections? People are realizing that the premise for the war was false. They're seeing Bush for who and what he really is all talk, with nothing behind it. Politicians who throw their lot in with Bush won't get elected.
Would you vote today the way you did in 2004? I voted for Kerry, and it seems blatantly obvious that was the right way to go.

What were your feelings at the war's outset three years ago? That we didn't have business doing that. The Iraqi people know better than us what to do with their country.
Have your feelings changed in the interim? I feel even stronger that we shouldn't be there. A lot of people have died, not just American soldiers, but Iraqi civilians and children.
How is President Bush doing overall? Poor, especially in the programs that help poor people. It's harder to get health insurance. Programs that help poor people have been cancelled to make more money for war.
Name something positive Bush has done. There has to be something, but I can't think of it offhand.
Will Bush's unpopularity impact the upcoming elections? Politicians who support Bush's policies will have a hard time of it.

What were your feelings the day we invaded Iraq? It was a stupid thing to do, and we didn't learn a thing from Vietnam.
What are your feelings now? That I was exactly right. It's bankrupted and divided the country.
What kind of job is Bush doing? I've never seen a more miserable excuse of a human being. He's stealing peoples' retirements.
Will the upcoming elections be influenced by Bush's low ratings? His hardcore supporters will vote for him no matter what he does, but he's lost a lot of the support he had from a lot of other people who voted for him.
