Bush Scapegoats Hillary (and YOU) for Iraq

Crooks and Liars, quoting Keith Olbermann's Special Commentary:

(Video at link)

The utter, blinkered idiocy of "staying the course" -- of sending Americans to Iraq, and sending them a second time, and a third, and a fourth, until they get killed or maimed -- the utter de-prioritization of human life, simply so a politician can avoid having to admit a mistake -- that had nothing to do with the tens of thousand individual tragedies darkening the lives of American families, forever -- it isn't Mr. Bush's fault.

The continuing, relentless, remorseless, corrupt and cynical insistence that this conflict somehow is defeating, or containing, or just engaging the people who attacked us on 9/11 -- the total "Alice Through The Looking Glass" quality that ignores that in Iraq, we have made the world safer for Al-Qaeda -- it isn't Mr. Bush's fault!

The fault, brought down -- as if a sermon from this mount of hypocrisy and slaughter, by a nearly anonymous Under-Secretary of Defense -- the fault has tonight been laid on the doorstep of Senator Hillary Clinton and, by extension, at the doorstep of every American -- the now vast majority of us -- who have dared to criticize this war, or protest it, or merely ask questions about it, or simply, plaintively, innocently, honestly, plead, "don't take my son; don't take my daughter."

Bush will never accept blame for this disaster, he has no shame.

"...or simply, plaintively, innocently, honestly, plead, "don't take my son; don't take my daughter."

What? The draft has been reinstated?

Paul Hamilton:

Nope, but unscrupulous people like Bush wave the flag and make service to the nation sound like a good thing -- which in theory, it SHOULD be -- and then sends those young people into his Iraq meatgrinder to die for his ego and Cheney's profits.


Naw, that's Kerry's and Rangel's idea, pushed for idiots like you to glom on to.
