Was this published in "Duh" Magazine?
I remember being one of the Freepers who was pulling his hair out over the lack of response to the lies. I was labeled a "Bush Basher".
Anyone who believes this was a ‘mistake’ isn’t paying enough attention. You don’t get to the big leagues making minor league errors like these boys supposedly did.
No, politics is nothing but theatre and all of the players read from the same script.
Wake up people! How come the Pubbies always seem to get ‘taken’ by the Rats? Are they that stupid? Not at all. It’s just theatre. Don’t ever forget that...
the momentum for slapping down the media was not there at the time- not like it is now
Bush was a victim of CNNBCBSPBSMSNBCNPR
Up until they talked the economy into the tank things were fine for 7.5 years
People (just 2 years later) are more aware that the media is a bunch of leftist LIARS more than ever before
Bush would curl up in a ball when the Rats started the lying marathons,The only ones he talked down too were US! calling American citizens racists for not wanting the entire population of dregs from south of the border here with us.
You mean we had/have "compelling evidence" that Saddam sponsored terrorism and we didn't make it public?
One document details a meeting between Iraqi intelligence and Osama Bin Laden in 1995, where Bin Laden asked the Iraqis to broadcast the sermons of an extremist cleric. He also requested joint operations against foreign military forces in Saudi Arabia. Apparently, the Iraqis actively entertained this idea. The Iraqi Perspectives Project found  a government manual from 2001 talking about how to overthrow the Saudi Royal Family involving the use of martyrs. A Kurdish newspaper published  a 2002 document mentioning preparations for a meeting with Ayman al-Zawahiri in relation to a Saddam-approved revenge operation against the Saudis. One Al-Qaeda document  confirms that some members of the terrorist group had gone to Iraq and that Ayman al-Zawahiri had visited both Iraq and Iran.
It sounds like Saddam scared the hell out of Bush's buddies in the House of Saud, just like back in '91.
This is what pisses me off about GOP. Their rope-a-dope stategy, throw up your hands to deflect punches, but don’t counterpunch.
GO AFTER THEM . . .PUT THEM ON THE DEFENSIVE . . . they can’t justify their own BS so hold them accountable and call them out.
Sometimes being a good streetfighter is worth it.
>> President Bushs top political advisor, Karl Rove, said on July 15 that his biggest mistake was not fighting back against Democrats...
You can just stop right there, Karl — because the statement is true not only of America’s involvement in Iraq, but on so many other topics as well.
Not for nothing do they call the GOP the “Stupid Party”.
The Bush Administration were the world’s worst political communicators. They paved the way for Obama and huge Democrat majorities. Thank you, George and Karl. We really appreciated it.
If this wasn’t obvious 6 years ago to anyone paying attention, you’d have to be a moron not to realize this in 2010. Can you imagine I’mANutJob and Saddam in an all-out sprint to acquire nukes? Given how hapless Obama has been in even being able to slow down Iran’s dash to acquire a nuclear capability, the notion he could have successfully “contained” the allegedly “boxed-in” Saddam is ludicrous.
As bad as the situation already is in the Middle East, it would be an order of magnitude worse with Saddam still in power. Of course, you will never get Obama, Biden, Pelosi or other war critics to ever concede this point.
The Bush Administration didnt make a competent argument to defend its position because they werent competent enough to assess the intelligence,
Obviously this Loftus guy isn't competent enough to assess the lying colluding leftist media and the dimwits that hang on their every anti republican word.
