Don't let Bush scam you again!

Finally, somebody took the time to go back and find the quotes that President Bush was referring to in his speech from Alaska (at Elmendorf AFB with our troops used as a backdrop)in which he "quoted" Democratic leaders supposedly supporting his invasion of Iraq. In case you haven't seen it, here's the text of his speech:

"Let me give you some quotes from three senior Democrat leaders: First, and I quote, 'There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons.' Another senior Democrat leader said, 'The war against terrorism will not be finished as long as Saddam Hussein is in power.' Here's another quote from a senior Democrat leader: 'Saddam Hussein, in effect, has thumbed his nose at the world community. And I think the President is approaching this in the right fashion.' They spoke the truth then, and they're speaking politics now."

Break it down: There are three separate Democrat leaders quoted but Bush doesn't use their names. The Rude Pundit Blog took the time to track them down and guess what...

They were all quoted COMPLETELY OUT OF CONTEXT.

Here's the link if you want to see EXACTLY what was said...and let me give you a hint: what they said wasn't what Bush claims it was. http://rudepundit.blogspot.com/

The next time you're having coffee with friends and they start mouthing the Republican Talking point that:

"The Democrats supported Bush and now they're just playing politics." Well, you'll have the evidence.

I was raised to believe that the Office of the President of the United States deserved great reverence and respect but I cannot believe how this man continues to dishonor the Office he holds.

I'll stop here before this becomes a rant.
