    But until I see Bush and blair actually prove that the account of those minutes are false, I refuse to forget that so easily... No matter what "Baghdad" Scotty McClellan says.
    •  and yet today, all the bagdad scotties (none)
      supporting this admin were saying that the reason bush numbers are so low is that they aren't getting their PR out - they actually are making the case that if they only do more photo ops and public appearances and repeat the same mantra - the public will actually support this war and his other policies.

      this admin is so out of touch with reality - they live in their own rendition of "survivor" - and we have been voted off their island!

      [just for the record, i don't watch that show, have only seen 3 or 4 minutes as i was racing to turn off the set.... just an analogy, here, folks!]

      •  One copy of Pentagon Papers redux coming up (none)
        2 years and 3 months AFTER the invasion, and they're STILL trying to sell this turkey ???




        that's what it's gonna sound like when they fry your ass in the Hague, george

        •  now we know why bush was so adamant about (none)

          •  Yep (none)
            He tried to make it sound like he was protecting our troops, but he knew that the type of actions they had approved could eventually be traced back to the top, and W doesn't really seem like the type to enjoy a long sentence in The Hague... Even though that thought makes me smile.
      •  Unfortunately, with at least a few, ... (none)
        ...this tactic will work.

        Excuse me, I feel like I need to throw up now.

    •  they aren't even trying to prove it false! (4.00)
      the new meme seems to be... that's old news...  and end it there!  why is it old news! its as relevant today as it was when it was 'new' news.  we're still in iraq arent we?  this bs about terri schiavo is old news... she's dead...  the crap they are pulling will have no effect on her.  but the dsm, and its repercussions for this administration... and its effects on thousands of soldiers...  is very real, and very relevant!
      •  That's right (none)
        Their line seems to be that it was already "addressed", instead of saying that it is totally false, or actually addressing the content. Bush's comment about him guessing they weren't true because they were released during Blair's campaign made me scream at the television: YOU MEAN LIKE THE SWIFTBOAT LIARS!!!?

        The fact that this makes them so nervous means we should keep pressing until this finds it's intended target...
