Bush just playing us with 'troop withdrawl'

  • 2 Comments
  • by: Go Blue

Keith Olbermann’s Special Comment tonight “Bush just playing us with ‘troop withdrawl’ hits every high and low note of the deception, political posturing, and abuse of our troops, as if they are campaign props, by Bush.

I just found the video:

Did Bush say anything to the troops about the lack of armor, Humvees, their exteneded tours or 100,000 American guns were supplied to the insurgents? No, he teased them with withdrawl.

“As he deceived the troops at Al-Asad Air Base yesterday with the tantalizing prospect that some of them might not have to risk being killed and might get to go home, Mr. Bush probably did not know that, with his own words, he had already proved that he had been lying, is lying and will be lying about Iraq.”

Bush is once again catapulting the propaganda.

“I’m playing for October-November,” Mr. Bush said to Draper. That, evidently, is the time during which, he thinks he can sell us the real plan, which is “to get us in a position where the presidential candidates will be comfortable about sustaining a presence.”

Comfortable, that is, with saying about Iraq, again quoting the President, “stay… longer.”


And there it is.  We’ve caught you. Your goal is not to bring some troops home, maybe, if we let you have your way now. Your goal is not to set the stage for eventual withdrawal. You are, to use your own disrespectful, tone-deaf word, playing at getting the next Republican nominee to agree to jump into this bottomless pit with you, and take us with him, as we stay in Iraq for another year, and another, and another, and anon.

Everything you said about Iraq yesterday, and everything you will say, is a deception, for the purpose of this one cynical, unacceptable, brutal goal: perpetuating this war indefinitely.

War today, war tomorrow, war forever!”

And you are playing at it! Playing!

A man with any self respect, having inadvertently revealed such an evil secret, would have already resigned and fled the country! You have no remaining credibility about Iraq.

I don’t know if I can handle 500 more days of this man.

And if you haven’t seen “No End in Sight” yet, I suggest you look up the next time it’s playing at the Chez Artiste.

    1. Telling the truth is such a “jerkish” characteristic OLBERMANN has. But, you can continue watching Bill O’Rally or Sean Insanity if you would like to keep your head in the sand. They will simply repeat the President’s talking points, which are nothing but false, fluff statements to perpetuate his occupation of Iraq. We’ve heard it all before and will hear it again.

      This is “stay the course” rhetoric that the President is selling the American people. Olbermann has only called him out on it.
