What an hypocrit!


[quote]For the first time, Bush revealed a personal way in which he has tried to acknowledge the sacrifice of soldiers and their families.

“I don’t want some mom whose son may have recently died to see the commander in chief playing golf,” he said. “I feel I owe it to the families to be in solidarity as best as I can with them. And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal.”

Bush said he made that decision after the August 2003 bombing of the United Nations headquarters in Baghdad, which killed Sergio Vieira de Mello, the top U.N. official in Iraq and the organization’s high commissioner for human rights.

“I remember when de Mello, who was at the U.N., got killed in Baghdad as a result of these murderers taking this good man’s life,” he said. “I was playing golf — I think I was in central Texas — and they pulled me off the golf course and I said, ‘It’s just not worth it anymore to do.’"[/quote]

and Fred Smith will not like this:

[quote]In a reversal of the usual question that’s put to him, a query submitted online asked the president whether he felt he had been misled about Iraq as he made the decision to go to war.

“‘Misled’ is a strong word, it almost connotes some kind of intentional,” Bush said. “I don’t think so. … Intelligence communities all across the world shared the same assessment. And so I was disappointed to see how flawed our intelligence was.”

Congress has since pushed, and Bush has signed, various intelligence reforms, including the creation of a director of national intelligence, whose job it is to help the various parts of the intelligence community share information.

“Do I think somebody lied to me?” he said. “No, I don’t. I think it was just, you know, they analyzed the situation and came up with the wrong conclusion.”

i think in certain countries,when intel gets it so badly wrong they are given a visit from “le peloton d’execution” no? :astonished:

Well, what do you expect? Bush is a Republican, after all.

I just gotta go here…
Well i don’t expect much from the Democrats. Look forward to another 4 years of a Republican in the White House protecting our cherished conservative views. Thank goodness Billary won’t be back in there!
(Do not read sarcasm here. I’m serious.)

And a liar.

“Now watch this drive.”

I present further evidence. Yesterday Mr. Bush said:


He also stated the following in 2002:

But back in 2005:

Oh yeah, they are only ‘rebels’ and ‘insurgents’, not terrorists. :unamused:

And isn’t he now “good friend” with Gaddafi, too, the leader of a terrorist nation?

Do you think Bush’s Secretary of State is going to be fired now for saying this just a day before Bush’s speech:

[quote]We need to figure out a way to develop some leverage . . . and then sit down and talk with them," Gates said. “If there is going to be a discussion, then they need something, too. We can’t go to a discussion and be completely the demander, with them not feeling that they need anything from us.”


The Bush administration has said it will talk with Iran, and consider lifting economic and other sanctions, only if Iran ends a uranium enrichment program the administration maintains is intended to produce nuclear weapons, a charge Iran denies. Although the U.S. and Iranian ambassadors to Baghdad met three times last year for discussions on Iraq, Iran has refused to continue that dialogue.[/quote]
Gates: U.S. Should Engage Iran With Incentives, Pressure

But we don’t negotiate with terrorists. :liar: :liar: :liar:

Chris Matthews smacks down some wingnut radio guy
I usually don’t care for Chris Matthews, but this is really funny. They guy is just parroting the Prez. About three years ago, he could have gotten away with it.

I really laughed me arse off when John McCain was quoted by the BBC this morning having said the “Americans would have won the Iraqi war by 2013.”

Looks like George is not going to play golf for at least another five years then.

[quote]COLUMBUS, Ohio (CNN) – Sen. John McCain envisions that by 2013, the Iraq war will be won, but the threat from the Taliban in Afghanistan won’t be eliminated, even though Osama bin Laden will have been captured or killed.

Sen. John McCain envisions his first-term achievements during a speech in Columbus, Ohio, Thursday.

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee made both statements in a speech in which he envisions the state of affairs at the end of his first term if he is elected president.[/quote]

Four more years of a Republican in the White House, continuing to flush America down the tubes? A depressing thought indeed…

May it not happen.

It’s just not the same when you don’t have Coldfront or Fred Smith frothing at the mouth spitting back at us all.


[quote]Q Mr. President, for the record, is global warming real?

THE PRESIDENT: Yes, it is real, sure is. But the solutions – having said that, the solutions have got to be measured and realistic – you can’t have a solution to global warming unless China and India are part of any international pact. It’s one of the reasons I didn’t accept what’s called the Kyoto Protocol, and therefore was labeled as anti-environment. I’m a realistic guy. If the major emitters of greenhouse gases are not a part of a solution, then those who are part of a solution are acting in a way that’s simply not going to – it will affect their own economies, but it won’t affect the overall global warming issue.[/quote]

There you have it; if China and India sign on, then the US ought to follow.

And the prez on baseball:

[quote]THE PRESIDENT: Well, I haven’t studied all the particulars and all the testing. But I do know they need to get this era behind them quickly. Baseball is a fabulous sport. I used to say it’s a sport played by normal-sized people. It turns out some of these normal-sized people are obviously very strong and very quick, but nevertheless, normal-size – you don’t have to be a huge guy to play baseball. And it’s a great family sport, and it needs to be cleaned up.

Q And there haven’t been enough normal-sized people.

THE PRESIDENT: Well, there’s – yes, there are a lot of normal-sized people. I mean, there’s a lot of little dudes who can play the game and play it well.[/quote]
