Bush is now moving into a cornered dog's counter-attack mode:
"They spoke the truth then and they're speaking politics now," Bush charged. Bush went on the attack after Democrats accused the president of manipulating and withholding some pre-war intelligence and misleading Americans about the rationale for war. "Some Democrats who voted to authorize the use of force are now rewriting the past," Bush said. "They're playing politics with this issue and they are sending mixed signals to our troops and the enemy. That is irresponsible."
The problem with this, is it's true. When Shrub was calling for war using intel that we all knew was bogus, and when we on the left were protesting in the streets against this war--full knowing that it was an idiotic idea, the Dems were following behind the "war" president like a bunch of well-trained puppies. So we're now left with a choice between the Republicons (the party of bad schemes) and the Dems (the party that has decided to tag along for the ride and see how things turn out before making a decision.) But ultimately the power rests with We the People. And the people who created this mess through deception should have to face us and tell us the truth. (The calls for Blair's impeachment--essentially for the high crime of following Shrub--should inspire us to put our house in order.) To Shrub's recent ranting, all I can say is "Yes, we realize the Dems are idiots. But the reason we think they're idiots is because they sided with you."
