This week the President pulled out his best pitches. With an election but months away, it’s time to hurl heat and this President (like his father) knows how to hurl!
“if we ever give up the desire to help people who live in freedom, we will have lost our soul as a nation, as far as I'm concerned."
Note: only desire is needed, competent execution is unnecessary.
"War is not a time of joy”
Note: Please ignore any premature “Mission’s Accomplished” and any jokes where the President searches for weapons of mass destruction under a podium.
A failed Iraq would provide a safe haven for terrorists and extremists and give them revenue from oil sales.
Note: Fundamentalist Islamists would likely shut out Western Oil companies, one of the major reasons the U.S. invaded Iraq. No way will Bush give up this franchise.
I will continue to remind our friends and allies is the danger of a nuclear-armed Iraq. (from the AP transcript)
Note: The President said Iraq while answering a question on Iran’s possession of nuclear weapons. The audiotape on the White House website clearly shows the President saying Iraq, yet their transcript shows Iran. Don’t tell me there is more yellow cake from Niger?
Will we have lost our soul as a nation when our President regularly lies to the people?
