Thanks For Clearing That Up

President Bush turns out so many wacky quotes that it's hard to pick a special one. Of the recent batch this sort of leapt out at me:
"I strongly believe what we're doing is the right thing. If I didn't believe it — I'm going to repeat what I said before — I'd pull the troops out, nor if I believed we could win, I would pull the troops out." —George W. Bush, Charlotte, N.C., April 6, 2006

I typoed the word "leapt" on the first pass, so I'm no one to talk.

Oooooh.....Bush, in a press conference, accidentally said "could" instead of "couldn't". Wow is right. Wow that you are trying to make something of this.

It sounds more Freudian than accidental. Deep down, Bush knows we can't, in fact, "win" in Iraq - it's a hopeless quagmire that we created and that we can't fix except by leaving. So his heart tries to make his brain tell the truth, rather than the lie he wants to tell. Unfortunately, everything gets all scrambled up in the process and emerges as nonsense.

P.S. We've been spotting "Anonymous" droppings all over the blogs lately...is there a scatologist in the house?

You're right, editor. We can't win. The proof is in that in three years we haven't succeeded in creating a peaceful democracy from scratch in a region comming off of thousands of years of oligarchy and dictatorship rule. We should just pack up and go home.

The only "hopeless quagmire" is the spinelessness of what the left has evolved into in this country. No longer the party of FDR and JFK - nosiree.

PS - thanks for defining "Freudian" for us.

Why is it 'spineless' to want to do the right, legal thing?

It takes courage to stand up and say that this administration has broken not only our laws, but the accepted laws of our global community.

They have lied to us, deceived us, and killed tens of thousands of people for personal gain.

The people who stand up and point this out should be listened to and honored.
