I am so sick of Bush’s lies! this quote, the first paragraph of the story had me just incensed:
“While it’s perfectly legitimate to criticize my decision or the conduct of the war, it is deeply irresponsible to rewrite the history of how that war began,” the president said during a Veterans Day speech in Tobyhanna, Pennsylvania.
“Some Democrats and anti-war critics are now claiming we manipulated the intelligence and misled the American people about why we went to war,” Bush said.
Rewriting history? Are you kidding me? They are shining a flashlight on the cob-webbed, dank, dark closet that Bush and his minions have locked the truth up in. We are finally seeing the truth! and here he is, as usual, feeding us all a line of bullshit.
And some people will believe him. I don’t know what it is about this man that makes people just blindly think that he is telling the truth, but people will inevitably believe that Democrats and anti-war Americans are “rewriting history.”
This is Rove’s typical modus operandi. Accuse your accuser of doing the very thing you are being accused of.
Harry Reid’s response was right on the mark:
“Attacking those patriotic Americans who have raised serious questions about the case the Bush administration made to take our country to war does not provide us a plan for success that will bring our troops home,” Reid said.
“The American people are demanding a comprehensive plan and the benchmarks by which to measure our success for the war in Iraq,” Reid said. “The president’s continued refusal to provide that plan does nothing to support our troops or their families.”
He’s right. We have every right to find out the truth! we have every right to question! Attacking us just further divides this country. What ever happened to “I’m a uniter not a divider?” I guess he was lying about that, too.
