Bush lies to troops

I'm sure you've all heard of his videoconference with a few troops over in Iraq by now. It's been all over the Air America radiowaves today and Mike Mallory promises to tear into it this evening so if you get the station or can stream online, do it.

Until then, here are a few snippets from yahoo! news to get you riled up assail your ears:

"We put in motion something that can't be stopped, and that is the march of freedom,"

Um, yes it can. If the citizen's in Iraq wanted it to stop bad enough, it would stop.

"Thank you for all your work. When you get back to the United States, if I'm hanging around, come by and say hello."

I'm glad I wasn't drinking anything when I read this. If he's hanging around, come by and say hello? He doesn't let anyone near him that isn't in his clique so yeah, that'll work.

"Do the Iraqis want to fight, and are they capable of fighting?"

WTF have they been doing thus far? Praticing?

"The mission you are on is vital to achieving peace and protecting America."

I still stand by the assertion that our "peace" and "freedom" here in America were never threatened. We are killing ourselves, we are our own terrorists.

"They stand for a vision that doesn't believe in freedom; that if you don't agree with their narrow point of view, that you're subject to reprisal"

Hmm, you think this is double-speak? After all, Shrub is the man who has made the phrase, "If you're not with us, you're against us (and align with terrorists)" popular. Then he told the Taliban to "bring it on," did he not?

I can't believe I forgot this one, Bush said that in Iraq, the United States and its allies are facing "an enemy that actually has a philosophy."
"And the philosophy is so opposite of ours. It is the exact opposite of what America stands for. We stand for religious freedom and freedom to speak and womens' rights and capacity for people to realize their dreams.

It's so bass ackwards and I'm tired of hearing him spout one thing but do another.

Can he just have a breakdown, or quit, already and move on? I know impeaching him will get us Chaney, but can we try it anyway?
