Rewriting History Related Activities
On Veteran's Day President Bush broke out his new defense against critics of his handling of the war in Iraq...........or in other words about 65% of the country. The speech was long and altogether inappropriate. Using Veterans Day to launch his latest attempt to restore credibility only proves that he feels the military is a tool for his own political gain. Exactly how does this makes us safer here at home?
To save you from a long boring read here is his money quote from the official Whitehouse transcript:
"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. (Applause.)"
REWRITING HISTORY ....YOU HAVE GOT TO BE F---ING KIDDING ME! How many times has this administration changed its reasoning for going to war? And now Bush stands there in front of his hand-picked veteran-applauders and says this. I know I shouldn't be shocked - its from page one of the Rove hand book. Accuse your enemy of what you are guilty. Like a playground bully who has just been called a bully - but can only reply "I know you are but what am I".
This approach may have worked after 911 when most of the country was willing to follow George right off a cliff if he asked us too. The problem is HE DID ASK and now we are stuck with his deeply irresponsible quagmire of war.
The administrations new attempt to deflect has little chance of working because as every poll shows, we just don't trust George anymore.
65% of the people in the country are effectively now the kids in the school yard yelling back at the President "We are rubber and you are glue, whatever you say bounces off us and sticks to you".
