Bush's Speech: Let's Count the Lies

By David Swanson,

In the coming free 30 minutes of uninterrupted airtime that ABC News and the Disney Corporation will no doubt give to a spokesperson for the majority of Americans who believe that the war on Iraq was a mistake, I expect we'll see some of the following points made about the speech that Bush just gave.

First, it was curious to see Bush adopt usage of the French language, in particular his repeated usage of the word "oui." At one point, he said "Oui, accept these burdens." Some viewers supposed he meant "We accept these burdens," but no one has been able to identify a single burden that Bush has accepted, leading to the consensus that the French word must have been the one on the teleprompters.

Second, and there's no really delicate way to put this, it was stunning to see the extent to which Bush flat out lied his ass off. The Downing Street Minutes and related documents have made clear, among other things, that Bush determined early on to promote two false justifications for the war: asserting a threat from Iraq's fictitious weapons of mass destruction, and blaming the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, on Saddam Hussein. Tonight, Bush said he never made any such crazy claims.

Just kidding. Actually, Bush made them again tonight. Of course, voices in the media believe the fact that he's lying his ass off is "old news," and polls ARE starting to reflect that. But apparently repetition of the lies themselves is new news, worthy of commercial-free airtime that even the Michael Jackson trial never merited. And ABC News had been given the speech transcript ahead of time. They provided commentary on it before and after Bush read his lines. Yet their commentary never touched on the "old news."

Bush came back to September 11th at least four times during the speech. He said that we (oui?) are fighting "a global war on terror," and that "the terrorists we're fighting aim to remake the Middle East…Iraq is the latest battlefield in this war."

"Terrorists on streets of Baghdad are followers of the same ideology," Bush said, that produced the attacks of – you guessed it – September 11, 2001.

But – do we really still have to say this? – the regime that Bush changed in Iraq had exactly nothing to do with those attacks. And the terrorists on the streets of Baghdad were not there until Bush attacked and occupied Baghdad. So, why did he do so?

There was, he just reminded us, "only one course … to defeat them abroad before they attack us at home."

Bush is sticking to the lies that he included in the formal letter and report that he submitted to the United States Congress within 48 hours after having launched the invasion of Iraq. In the letter, dated March 18, 2003, the President made a formal determination, as required by the Joint Resolution on Iraq passed by the U.S. Congress in October 2002, that military action against Iraq was necessary to "protect the national security of the United States against the continuing threat posed by Iraq," as well as suggesting that the war is part of a global campaign against those behind the attacks of September 11, 2001.

But Iraq couldn't even shoot down an airplane after endless and illegal provocation during the summer of 2002. What was the threat? That they would nuke us in 45 minutes, that unmanned planes would spray us with killer chemicals? These lies have all been shredded, and yet the idea that there was a threat is still new news to ABC News.

"We [oui?] fight today," Bush said tonight, "because the terrorists want to attack our cities and kill our citizens, and Iraq is where they are making their stand. We will fight them there, and we will stay in the fight until the fight is won."

So, the disaster that Bush has created in Iraq is now the justification for having created it. But who is this universal group of "terrorists" fighting this global war?

Bush made that clear tonight by quoting none other than Osama Bin Laden as saying that "the war is waging in Iraq." But he didn't say that BEFORE Bush launched a war against Iraq! Hey, Ted Koppel, do you guys, like, keep stuff on tape or that sort of thing?

Bush added to his lies tonight, as he does every day in which he maintains silence on key points about which the media will not ask him. He did not say tonight that there will be no permanent US military bases in Iraq. He did not say tonight that the Iraqi people will get to keep their oil. He said he would give no exit date until "the job is done" and the "mission" is "complete," but he did not provide any way for a mortal to measure whether that state of affairs has been reached or not.

"To complete the mission, we will continue to hunt down the terrorists and insurgents." But won't you always continue to hunt down somebody or other, Mr. President? So, won't the mission never be complete? So, won't there be permanent military bases? And wouldn't you now forswear any interest in giving oil to your cronies if you were ever going to do so?

Bush said nothing about the rise in terrorist incidents since he launched his war on terror, nothing about the steep decline in affection for the United States around the world. He knows that he has made us less safe, yet he asserted that "My greatest responsibility as President is to protect the American people."

But, as Sam Husseini has argued, a good way to reduce the fighting in Iraq and make Americans less hated would be for Americans to take steps to investigate and, if necessary, impeach Bush. The message that would send to the people of Iraq would be far more powerful than any boost in U.S. Army recruitment.

Or, we could all sign up and go kill and die for Bush.


It's a tough choice, I know.

"This 4th of July," Bush said tonight, "I ask you to thank the men and women defending our freedom by flying the flag…or helping the military family down the street."

Why don't you PAY the military family for the work it does, and provide those people with decent health care and education? I'll fly a flag or eat a picnic on one, as I see fit, but it won't be because you lied to a bunch of courageous young people and sent them off to give their lives or their limbs or their sanity for your wealth, ease, and ego, while you mumble lies off a teleprompter about what you're sacrificing.

You want to sacrifice? Take ten minutes and answer Congressman Conyers' letter. Did you know that 128 Congress Members and 560,000 of the rest of us have signed it?

Do it for your country, Mr. Commander in Chief.

Give 10 minutes back to the nation that has given you so much.

Thank you, thank you David Swanson. After listening to the president's UNenlightened speech tonight I thought I would never smile again. Then I read "Bush Speech: Let's Count the Lies". Quite frankly every time the president used the word "we" in his speech tonight my frown became deeper. Then I read with delight your explanation. It was "oui"!! I'm STILL laughing! Thanks!

That I didn't watch because I would have puked at seeing his lying face.

Great article, David.

Thank you David for keeping my spirits up. I am happy to know that there are others in the country that are as fed up as I am, and that others can see through the BS and keep the truth in front of them.

Another "Stay the Course" speech...great. Here's a quote from

In 1999, George W. Bush criticized President Clinton for not setting a timetable for exiting Kosovo, and yet he refuses to apply the same standard to his war.

George W. Bush, 4/9/99:

“Victory means exit strategy, and it’s important for the president to explain to us what the exit strategy is.

Add that to the number of President Bush's flip-flops! Thanks for posting that. I never noticed that before.

It is not possible to really understand what Bush says or what he does until you know WHO HE IS! To find out who he is, visit and click on SEE! (or just click on

Once you realize who Bush really IS, everything he says (lies and deception) and everything he does (contradictions of what he says and truly evil acts) becomes consistent (and very, very scary!)

Unfortunately, the worst is yet to come :O


You can't be serious. George Bush is the antichrist? The antichrist?!?

And, in order to prove that to us, you point us to an anti-semitic website that plays "Amazing Grace" at us?

I thought Howard Dean explained to us that the "white christians" were Republicans? :0

If you people want the world to take you seriously, you're going to have to do ALOT better than this.

You're a joke, really.


Dear Anonymous,

The site is NOT anti-semitic; it IS anti-Zionist. Do you know the difference? Take the time to study the evidence in front of your eyes before making premature and ill-informed remarks. Is Howard Dean an expert on Christians? (No, he is not) Does the 'Republican Right' act like followers of Christ? (does wearing an American flag pin in your lapel make you a patriot? - No to both). I don't expect 'the world' to take me seriously! The 'world' didn't take Christ seriously, did it?! (many take Him seriously now, and EVERYONE will take Him seriously, eventually :)

If "You're a joke, really" reflects the bottom line of your debating skills, it will be best for you to keep quiet.

He certainly isn't a Christian, that is for sure.....

As the mother of a U.S. Army soldier stationed at Ft. Bragg I can tell you that not every soldier agrees with this administration. My son is completely disillusioned but he does his job as he vowed to do. The President's speech was nothing more than the same gobbly-gook he's been spouting. I was appalled at his frequent references to 9/11 and the unspoken connection to the pre-emptive, illegal attack of Iraq. I know my Congressman must be getting pretty annoyed with my constant barrage of letters but maybe, just maybe, he'll start to see the light. Keep up the good work!

Dan Balz at the Washington Post says "His critics long have accused Bush of falsely drawing a connection between Iraq and Sept. 11 as a way to justify the original decision to launch the war in Iraq. That was not the point Bush made last night. Instead it was that Iraq has now become such a magnet for foreign terrorists that winning the current battle there is every bit as critical as was the fight to depose Saddam Hussein."
BUT all the callers on the radio show I'm now doing thought Bush meant that Saddam Hussein was behind 9-11.

Dear Lynne,

I'm afraid that 'doing your job' is not good enough when it comes to killing innocent people or playing any role in such activities! (vow or no vow). Hitler's henchmen used the same reasoning at Nuremburg - it wasn't good enough then, it isn't good enough now and it will NEVER be good enough. The only thing that's good enough is to say "NO!" and put down your gun (or pencil, or whatever) and accept the consequences, whatever they are. If enough people have the guts to do that, the 'war' will end tomorrow - guaranteed!

Don't you dare write crap like that to a mother of an American serviceman. Our troops serve the country proudly and bravely, and it's not their fault that this Administration has sent them to an unnecessary war with illequipped gear on a flimsy case built on lies and hyperbole. Lynne's son is stationed at Fort Bragg, not Iraq, and you have to be insane to slander all of our brave troops.


thank you, so much, for writing your Congressmen, and most of us on the left don't agree with the nonsense written above. You should be proud of your son for serving his country...and proud of yourself for seeking answers and doing what you can to stop this mad war. I sure hope he isn't shipped out...and we're doing the best to help bring all our troops home safe and sound.


Dear Ron,

Who is 'most of us' and how many of you are there? (hopefully, not many)

What does 'don't you dare' mean? Where is the 'slander'? Who killed and maimed the 150,000+ Iraqis, including civilians, women, old men and children? Would you like their blood on your hands? It is not a 'mad war'. It is a crime against humanity. 'We're doing the best...' is obviously not good enough! The buck, Ron, stops with each one who is asked to participate in mass murder, whether they're in Iraq or anywhere else. It is each person's responsibility to say 'NO!'

I, too, hope that Lynne's son will not be sent to Iraq and if the government wants to send him, Lynne and her son should both say "NO!". More than enough lives have been wasted.

The blood is primarily on Bush's hands but there is no shortage of guilty hands!

I shouldn't have said "most of us." I should have said "all of us" except for one or two wackadoos who don't see why it's slander to call everyone who serves in the military a Nazi, who actually think that getting everyone to quit the military is viable, constructive or sane, who post anti-military messages at a Website which includes many veteran organizations, and who are probably really Freepers trying to hurt a movement that is working hard to get things done.

Not everyone who serves in the military is deserving of the term Nazi. Don't forget, most of these people have been brainwashed into believing that what they are doing is for a noble cause. Lets face it, there are a lot of the American public who believe all the shit the administration is telling us, and of course the media with all their conflicts of interest fail to give us the real story. I especially don't blame the young soldiers out there that really believe the rhetoric and think they are doing what is right - many of them have no understanding of the history of Iraq beyond recent media bullshit propaganda which we know is garbage.

No offense, but lets not be too harsh on those who really mean well but have been lied to to the point that they are willing to fight for us - these brave people do not deserve to scolded, it is our politicians and media for lying to them in the first place that deserve to be put out of business.

Sorry to say this, but you can't argue against Nuremberg. That as the one time in my lifetime where "the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but he truth" came out on top.

Ron, you are undoubtedly a patriot, in the +true+ sense of the word (i.e. NOT as prescribed by the Patriot Acts), but it is perfectly patriotic to say "I support the troops ... send them home to their families ... they should not be fighting an illegal war of naked aggression".

And, furthermore, it is perfectly patriotic (again, in the true sense of the word), for any Serviceman to agree with that, and to refuse to take part fight in such an illegal war.

In point of fact, it is not only perfectly patriotic, it is their (and everyone honest citizen's) +duty+.

And Nuremberg explained why.

I believe that the U.S. military was ordered to invade Iraq by a President that had a personal agenda, and nothing more. I wish our troops were not there, but they are, and now we must support them, and see through what W. has started. If we leave now, every soldier and Iraqi civilian that has died or been injured will have paid the price for nothing. The country will slip into chaos, and will be a terrorist haven unlike anything ever known. Without a government to control Iraq, it would be a nightmare, and so we are left with no choice but to clean up the mess. Even if W. were not in charge, and you had your choice of Presidents, that President would in turn owe it to our country and Iraq to clean up the mess that W. started.

That is a separate issue from what this site is about. The main point everyone needs to keep in mind is that W. was illegally making plans to invade Iraq while telling the world another story. Bush should, at minimum, be investigated for this, and hopefully it will lead to a full impeachment. I think that what Ron was trying to say is that we are there now, for better or worse, and that it is important to support the troops and their families because they did not ask to be put in the situation they are in, they were put there by a few powerful, arogant, short sighted, money hungry bastards. If you want to direct hostility at anyone, it should be at our President and his merry men.

I don't believe in staying in Iraq for one day longer...I believe in complete withdrawal of our troops. If somehow things got worse, then I'd support a true coalition to go back in and keep the peace.

But I am anti-war...I am not anti-military. And I fail to see how anyone not serving in Iraq can be compared to Nazis. And some people can bring up the Nuremberg trials all they want but the fact of the matter is the vast majority of Germans who served in the military during WW2 weren't imprisoned or executed. That would have been impossible.

peace, all

You touched on something I thought was interesting in that speech -- what looks like the return of the morally repugnant flypaper theory. Before the speech, Neil Cavuto had a crack at what the President would/should say. It included this:

He should remind us all that the War on Terror takes many forms in many places and that we should be grateful that right now it's in "that" place and not here in "this" place.

What does that mean? Here's what Bush said an hour later:

"Iraq is the latest battlefield in this war. Many terrorists who kill innocent men, women, and children on the streets of Baghdad are followers of the same murderous ideology that took the lives of our citizens in New York, Washington, and Pennsylvania. There is only one course of action against them: to defeat them abroad before they attack us at home. The commander in charge of coalition operations in Iraq -- who is also senior commander at this base -- General John Vines, put it well the other day. He said: "We either deal with terrorism and this extremism abroad, or we deal with it when it comes to us."

Here's the text of what Vines said:

"The United States has not been attacked again since 11 September. And so there's some questioning, perhaps, of whether or not what's going on here is worth it," said Lt. Gen. John R. Vines, who commands the Multinational Corps Iraq. "Quite honestly, I think we have a pretty clear-cut choice. We either deal with terrorism and this extremism abroad, or we deal with it when it comes to us, as it would inevitably, as it has previously."

Is this the new Message -- That if we leave Iraq, it'll free up the terrorists to attack us? The Freepers responded well to the idea (forum in link above), as you might expect from that ... political demographic. I just wonder how Iraqis feel about being used as a live bait.

David, excellent article. I made my own review at the Bring Democracy Back organization, but I wasn't nearly able to articulate it as well as you did. And that part about Dubya using a bit of Francias in his speech, very clever. hehehehe Might actually be true.........

"That I didn't watch because I would have puked at seeing his lying face." -- Anonymous

I only saw part of the speech, and it was the part where Bush quoted bin Laden.


"Some wonder whether Iraq is a central front in the War on Terror. Among the terrorists there is no debate. Hear the words of Usama bin Laden, 'This Third World War is raging in Iraq. The whole world is watching this war.'"

(from the transcript.)

"...We know that when the work is hard, the proper response is not retreat, it is courage. And we know that this great ideal of human freedom entrusted to us in a special way and that the ideal of liberty is worth defending."

In first part of that paragraph, he says, "We know that if evil is not confronted, it gains in strength and audacity and returns to strike us again."(OUCH!) mimics perfectly his administration's demoralizing techniques against our Congress, and power-plays against our system of government. It seems so strange that 'Republican Speak' mirrors the image which Americans who have really paid attention to real news have of him and the other neocons. It seems to be a pattern, or Modus Operandi, if you will.

I don't watch any of GWB's, Cheney's, Rumsfeld's, (et al), speeches, press conferences, (whatever), for other reasons, than to avoid nausea. The networks have been doing tallies to see which one of them had the most viewers. They just might notice if 'no one' watched! The advertisers would lose a bit, for not being able to rub as much $ between their accounts? It's a lot quieter around my place as domination of media coverage becomes more and more Bush&Co, my tvs go darker and quieter, or I'm off to a channel that doesn't have their sinister mugs scowling, hissing and threatening away! My usual stance is right here, though, reading the real truth, and suffering through an occasional inspiration to put in my tuppence to my most admired .net or .org news hounds!

A few points....

Numbers I

It has been reported that the insurgency consists of only 2-5% of the type of terrorists Bush speaks of. If there are 20,000 insurgents total, 400 – 1,000 are foreign terrorists, leaving 19,600 - 19,000 people fighting for something else… the liberation of their country perhaps?

Numbers II

Our military reports that we have killed or captured hundreds of foreign fighters out of the 100,000+ Iraqis that have been killed and God-knows-how-many that have been imprisoned since this war began. Hundreds seems like a small number to build the complete speech around... unless you're trying to mislead people.

As long as they're only killing our friends

The “defeat them abroad

I didn’t watch the speech, and won’t read it either. He has nothing to say that I need to hear or know. I’ve done all of the research available online, available to every patriotic citizen. If you haven’t done the research to learn the TRUTH, and you are simply repeating the party line in an effort to silence seekers of the truth, you are merely a parrot, and serve no useful purpose in the future of this country.

Your duty at the present time is to read. Read everything you can get your hands on before they shut down the Internet and prevent you from learning the truth.

George W. Bush, One Lying Son of a Bitch

As I said in my blog...

By once again connecting the PNAC plan to invade Iraq with the events of 9/11, George W. Bush clearly proved that he is one lying son of a bitch. Let me remind the idiots who support this murderous criminal that Iraq was not even on America’s list of terrorist nations prior to the invasion. Just ask Colon Powell and Condoleezza Rice, both of whom declared Iraq to be no threat to America or the region PRIOR to the invasion!!!


The reason so many are not seeing the light is because of the Medias.
They are not bringing us the news and they support Bush.
I myself fell into this trap.
I hope our senate and congress get off there ass and do there jobs,this president started a war on a lie,and its in black and white.
But they have a grip called FEAR,so lets hope they find there b*lls and do there job.

We have not had a investigation on 9/11.But yet we know all about Monica,or Scot peterson.
Between corruption in the FBI and courts,they have everything controlled.

This president is guilty of war crimal charges and treason,and so is congress if they stand by and do nothing.

However, these blind fools will never admit the truth or that they were wrong. We are wasting our time. If Dubya committed armed robbery and explained his crime as fighting terrorism...he would have neocons supporters defending him to the death.

Little George Stupid is not only a lying son of a bitch he is a lazy son of a bitch. This A-hole is to lazy to come up with new lies, this whole speech is nothing more than recycled lies of the past four years, how stupid does he think we are anyway?

If you tell a lie big enough and long enough the people will eventually believe it; I believe that was the modus operendi of the communists and heir Gobbels. Little George Stupid has told these lies so often that I believe he is begining to believe them himself. It is one thing to be a liar it is another thing to start believing your own lies, the height of stupidity and arrogance.

Little George Stupid and Osama bin Laden are the moral equivalent of each other; they both use god, religion and lies to justify killing people.

Not one commentator in the last 4 years has pointed out the obvious...Democracy does not work when over half the population is brain dead. The fact that people watch FOX news and actually BELIEVE what they're seeing.. I mean it's staggering. I'm sorry America, it's not your fault, from the time you are little children you are fed this god bless america wave the flag bullshit, they drill it into your brains, and now this is what happens. A certifiable war criminal running your country and people, instead of bumrushing the white house, nod their head, break out the "support our troops" magnets and think this is somehow going to get better. Pathetic.

We're fucked.

Bravo to all your points! I'd like to echo your comment about those magnets. Everytime I see one of those on some rich bastards SUV, i can't help but think, yea, Support Our Troops hey asshole I PAY MY TAXES to support them. How much are you getting back from King George?

when over half the population is brain-dead.

Okay, Mr Schraeder. Suppose your point is conceded. I'll take the last election as something approaching convincing evidence. Suppose over half the population of the United States is unable politically to tie their shoes.

Suppose the Republic has crashed and burned.

Now, what form of government do you propose to replace it with? Hmm?
On first hearing, it was a toss-up which was the biggest lie in Bush's speech to the special forces troops at Ft. Bragg Tuesday evening: that we are winning the war in Iraq, that we are there to fight terrorism, or that we are "bringing liberty" to the people of Iraq.

Clearly the whole purpose of the address, which was televised nationally, was to try to staunch the hemorrrhaging of public support for a war begun with lies that has so far cost almost 1800 American soldiers’ lives, that has no end in sight, and that we clearly are losing.

The lie that the war was begun to combat terrorism is so ridiculous at this point it doesn't need discussion. Even the administration has conceded that Iraq had nothing to do with international terrorism prior to the invasion, and to the extent that there is an international terrorist focus on Iraq today it was created by the U.S. invasion and occupation of that country.

My choice for biggest lie is the "bringing liberty" claim.

All you really need to do to recognize the absurdity of this claim is to note that this week the U.S. announced plans to construct new prisons in Iraq for an anticipated 16,000 prisoners.

New prisons! 16,000 prisoners! This is our contribution to democracy? And note that these are American prisons we are talking about. American prisons in a supposedly "sovereign" Iraq!

They must have the American model of "democracy" in mind here. We are, after all, a country that keeps over 2 million people behind bars at any given time, many of whom are being held for years or even decades for non-violent offenses. We are also a country that, in all but a handful of states, bars anyone who has been in jail for a felony or class III misdemeanor from ever participating again in the election process--we permanently terminate their citizenship rights, that is.

The so-called democracy we are allegedly bringing to Iraq at the point of our guns, cannons, gunships and bombs (which have already killed upwards of 100,000 civilians and leveled entire cities), is currently little more than a bunch of Shi’ia and Kurdish officials elected last January by voters who were in many cases bribed or coerced into voting, who now meet in the Green Zone of Baghdad under the armed protection of the U.S. military. It is a "government" whose members daily have to pass through checkpoints manned by American troops who frisk them each day as if they were potential terrorists.

Some democracy. In the old days we called such puppet regimes colonies or, more recently, client states.

Bush also contradicted himself in his speech, saying that the war in Iraq was the main front in his so-called War on Terror. Trying, rather patheticaslly, to sound like Winston Churchill in the dark days of World War II, he claimed America had brought the war on terror to Iraq, and vowed "…we will fight them there, we will fight them across the world, and we will stay in the fight until the fight is won."

But Iraqis themselves are understandably asking just who invited the U.S. to bring 140,000 heavily-armed troops to their country to turn the place into a front in this war on terror.

The whole "Vietnamization" plan for developing an Iraqi army to take over the fighting and dying from American troops is a mockery of any democratic ideal. The army being trained by the U.S. is not described as something to protect and defend Iraq; it is being described as something that will "take over the fighting from the U.S. military." It is simply a way of cutting U.S. casualties and making Iraqis die for American interests.

And the president and his supporters call this bringing liberty to Iraq.

The biggest giveaway that this whole claim about bringing liberty to Iraq is a fraud is what Bush did not say. Though many people, even in his own party, have been urging it, at no point in his speech did the president declare that the U.S. had no interest in staying in Iraq permanently. In fact, of course, exactly the opposite is true: as Iraqis well know, the Pentagon is quietly constructing permanent bases and airfields in the country, with plans to the place a major U.S. imperial outpost.

Liberty is pretty easy to define. It means people running their own country and having all the freedoms we enumerate in our Bill of Rights.

The U.S. is bringing no such thing to Iraq.

That was the biggest lie, among many, in the Bush address.

"If ever a time should come when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin." --Sam Adams

While America’s media effectively hypnotizes the nation with frivolous and mind-numbing entertainment on TV (Casino Nation); endless servings of so-called reality shows, inane sitcoms and jerry springer-style voyeurism, most Americans are kept blissfully ignorant to the real terrorism of global warming. You won't be surprised who the main offenders are and why they conspire to ignore the mounting scientific evidence of the effects fossil fuel emissions are having on the earth's environment.

We cannot continue to battle the beast while we
finance its very existence!

The time has come to use the only legal and non-lethal tool left available to the public. We must counter the weapons of the power elite that has hijacked our democracy and taken control of the nation. Believe it our not, that tool is MONEY! In this case, however, we are not asking you to spend your money; we are asking you to withhold it!


Nice Web site. It's good that people are finally waking up to the fact that the corporate media are manipulating the public through lies and propaganda.

Progressives need alternative news sources, and I thought I'd mention the best source of progressive news I've found on the Web: . It's updated daily and has articles from progressives and the best articles from the corporate and foreign media that would normally slip through the cracks. will keep you informed; they were reporting the Downing Street memo WEEKS before the corporate media.

May i suggest that you really could help the cause if you would take a study in rove-ism. in fact you may even want to relook at Dana Millbanks latest taking you to the woodshed thrashing. she has an excellent understanding of roveism. or better yet, take a read on himler if you really want to understand rove/bush/neo cons in general.

is it any wonder the neo con nazi's laugh out loud when pited against liberals no matter what the setting? hell the latter expose their insufficiencies daily with their self flagulations, their self persecutions. in fact all the neo con nazi's need do is read their speeches, listen to them perform in the house and senate on state and federal levels! and if that were not bad enough, they study the liberal's self hate by observing them on the campaign trail!

in fact, if you were to take special note you would be able to see very easily how the liberals: purchase a new stool at the furniture store, take it home and place it on the floor under the beam they tie their rope to, then see them put the loop around their own necks and yes, even watch them push the stool away from under their feet.

"w" has witnessed that. heinrich himler,rudolf hess have witnessed that. hitler has witnessed that. in fact all the neo con nazi/commie/dictators have born witness to that truth, and all have used the liberal as their punching bags to lift them into power.

but that in itself does not seperate them out from the liberal losers. oh no! what has given them the winner's edge, is that they have: learned all the liberal weaknesses and turned it against the best teachers of antiliberal bias and hate in this nation. the liberals themselves!

now then, just watch to see who in the democratic party is able to best shut up the right wing neo con nazi's, after he tears into the meat of "w"'s latest disgrace to the office of the president!

after you see that, check out who it will be with the most vicious attacks upon him!

Re:"What he meant to say"...Great re-wording of the speech, however, even more scandalous and pointing to the blatant "Family Values" mask that these NeoCons love to wear, is the male prostitutes like Gannon, etc...that these closet-gay-yet-Homo-phobe's love to frolick around with. The MISTRESS thing is only a cover story for the REAL scandal. Just like that gay-bashing Governor that recently came out... Hypocrisy is their chief value, after money-worship/idolatry, of course.

Why can no one question US complicity or knowledge of 9/11 without being dismissed as a conspiracy nut? Even the left is doing that, and refuses to touch so many of the discrepancies and the EVIDENCE that something was very rotten in Washington on that day.
