In light of the poor ratings that the Cheney admin. is getting from the American people, who seem to be waking from a collective slumber, the Neo-Jacobin spinmeisters are presenting a fantastic piece of television programming in the next few weeks which presents GW Bush (alcoholic with learning disabilities who deserted his unit during a time of war) as an involved, thinking, and heroic character!
[quote]Bush’s propaganda war ignores reality of failed Iraq policy
Although military professionals tell him Iraq has descended into irreversible civil war, President George W. Bush Saturday kept up his pre-election offensive fantasy on Iraq, claiming things are going far better than the facts demonstrate in the war-ravaged nation.[/quote]
:America: better than the facts demonstrate!
[quote]“Apparently, the state of denial at the White House is worse than I thought,” writes Cynthia Tucker, editorial page editor of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “Dick Cheney still inhabits a lonely planet on which the Iraqis love us. And Donald Rumsfeld, speaking to the Legionnaires earlier, likens anyone who questions an open-ended U.S. commitment in Iraq – a group that now includes several Republicans in Congress – to the Nazi appeasers of the 1930s.”
Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, agrees Bush and his cronies are in deep denial.
“The Pentagon’s new report indicates that President Bush, Vice President Cheney and Secretary Rumsfeld’s speeches are increasingly disconnected from the facts on the ground in Iraq,” Reid says. “Even the Pentagon acknowledges Iraq is tipping into civil war, Failed Republican policies have left America bogged down in Iraq, with our military stretched thin and less able to fight and win the war on terror.”[/quote]
