I am sick of the media and even opponents of this stinking war always giving little George Stupid the benefit of the doubt and using terms like misled, misinformed, etc. Damnit little George Stupid flat out lied, he is a liar, his lies killed tens of thousands, people are dying today because of his lies. This man deserves no respect due to his office, little George Stupid is the one who has brought dishonour to the office of the presidency, he is a liar a common criminal, he needs to be impeached and put on trial for war crimes, he is the worst president this country has ever seen.

for the love of God man...you are pissed! GOOD!!! yes, blame shfting is a major Rove strategy- the whole 911 commission was all about setting up the intelligence community- now he has documentation to fall back on- Bush is the victim in this whole thing. he's the one that was lied to! oh,well. who could argue that the world's not a better place w/out saddam hussein? all's well that ends well,right?
notice the other stock defense,whenever policy is questioned: "you're disparaging our troops in the field!"of course, it works every time. instant back off and apology. just once I'd love for someone to stand up and say "no, you smirking chimp, I'm protecting our troops in the field from twerps like you who make the decisions to put them in harm's way for your own personal gain(follow the money trail)!

At least he didn't cheat on his wife. you could get IMPEACHED for that,you know! (who knows- at least he didn't get CAUGHT cheating on his wife....Rove,Mehlman,Gillespie et al really have no experience at coverups...they wouldn't know where to begin!)

I agree

"just once I'd love for someone to stand up and say "no, you smirking chimp, I'm protecting our troops in the field from twerps like you who make the decisions to put them in harm's way for your own personal gain(follow the money trail)!"

Well said. Can't you just picture W's face if that was said to him?

What really aggravates me is Bush uses soldiers and patriotism like a spendthrift uses a credit card!
