I could waste much of my time carving up quotes (particularly the ones provided on this thread) from Pres. Bush, a man who has said:
"I'm the commander — see, I don't need to explain — I do not need to explain why I say things. That's the interesting thing about being president." —as quoted in Bob Woodward's Bush at War. (A book I OWN)
"Oh, no, we're not going to have any casualties." —discussing the Iraq war with Christian Coalition founder Pat Robertson, as quoted by Robertson
"If this were a dictatorship, it'd be a heck of a lot easier...just as long as I'm the dictator..."
--Washington, DC, Dec 18, 2000, during his first trip to Washington as President-Elect
Etcetera, etcetera. Please, throw your lot in with this pres. and expect not to get hammered - I'll try to sell you some weapon labs from Iraq....
I could give reams of quotes from Bush and his advisors contradicting themselves with each dubious word they attempt to pound in to gullible, impressionable American citizens' heads but I'm not going to waste the time on ideological, politically motivated true believers such as yourself.
I've already made a very poignant illustration of the continued backpedaling the administration has made from their previous misleading statements regarding Iraq in this thread alone.
On September the 11th, 2001, we found that problems originating in a failed and oppressive state 7,000 miles away could bring murder and destruction to our country. - President Bush, State of the Union Address, February 1st, 2006
Tuesday, August 22, 2006:
BUSH: The terrorists attacked us and killed 3,000 of our citizens before we started the freedom agenda in the Middle East.
QUESTION: What did Iraq have to do with it?
BUSH: What did Iraq have to do with what?
QUESTION: The attack on the World Trade Center.
BUSH: Nothing. Except it’s part of — and nobody has suggested in this administration that Saddam Hussein ordered the attack. Iraq was a — Iraq — the lesson of September 11th is take threats before they fully materialize, Ken. Nobody’s ever suggested that the attacks of September the 11th were ordered by Iraq.
Video from Fox News:
The American public has already begun to sour on the words from this president and his administration.
More Americans disapprove than approve of how George W. Bush, Donald Rumsfeld and Congress are doing their jobs, while a majority approves of Condoleezza Rice. President Bush’s approval hits a record low of 33 percent this week, clearly damaged by sinking support among Republicans. - Fox News
The poor reception by the public of the Iraq War is THE reason Bush continues to be pounded by the majority of American Citizens in the polls:
Only three in 10 Americans approve of how he is handling the war, and more than twice as many -– 65 percent -- disapprove. Since early this year, only about three in 10 Americans have approved of the president’s handling of Iraq. - CBS
But what about the troops? What do they think of the Iraq debacle?
An overwhelming majority of 72% of American troops serving in Iraq think the U.S. should exit the country within the next year, and more than one in four say the troops should leave immediately, a new Le Moyne College/Zogby International survey shows. - Zogby International
Anything you have to offer, Obsession, in the form of Bush Quotes I am not threatened by as you are preaching to the ever - shrinking choir. I simply wish you had the Nnnnnuts! to speak for yourself instead of spamming a thread wherein JU citizens are attempting a discussion without kiddie cut'n'paste antics. You support a war but are too cowardly to even verbally battle. You pathetic pile.
And Fuck Off.
