"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

Lying's a sin, when you get to Heaven, God won't let you in.

During yesterday's press briefing, White House snake-oil man Scott McClellan discussed the Bin Laden tape with reporters. And he said, "the President made it clear that we will end it at a time and place of our choosing". In essence, Scott just said that we have the ABILITY to end the war at any time. Now, we can believe one of two things about this statement, which per Scott comes directly from the horse's mouth - the pResident.

First, since the FACT is that the war is going on and on and on, and it is causing damage to the nation and (to Bush) more importantly the administration, you might believe the statement is a lie. Just more lying bullshit coming out of the Bush Administration. Tough talk from somebody who started a fight he can't possibly win. Obviously, we do not have the ability to end the war whenever we choose to do so, or why would Bush continue it? Apparently, we don't even have the ability to end the war, period. So you can believe that this is a mouth-full-of-horse-puckey lie. May God split your tongue for lying, Scott.

OR, you can believe the statement. In which case one has to ask why we have not ended the war yet. What benefit is Bush getting out of his wars that he would continue them if he has the capability to end it whenever he chooses? How many American troops is Bush willing to kill off just to continue a war he can end any time he wants to, and why? What payoff is Bush reaping by the war on terror that he will NOT end a war he himself claims to have the ability to end at any time? Certainly, if we could hack into the files of the Carlyle Group we'd find out what Bush's take on the war profits is. That might provide the answer. But probably not the entire answer. I suspect that its also partly wrapped up in the damaged ego of a career alcoholic and coke addict, and his need for feeling superior. Of course, he could fill that need by simply learning to speak English properly.
