Primetime Lies

“If this were a dictatorship, it’d be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I’m the dictator.”
George W. Bush, U.S. President

President Bush has decided that his gang’s mission is to force democracy on the world. Tonight during primetime, the president will provide detailed specifics for a strategy for success. Based on previous messages from Bush and his gang, I believe anything specific will be a lie. They don’t believe the people should be informed.

According to the New York Times, Scott McClellan, Bush’s spokesman, said "You will hear the president talk about the stakes in Iraq. The stakes are high. We are being tested."

The administration often denies paying heed to opinion polls, and McClellan struggled a bit to explain why Bush needed to make a prime-time speech now.

"It's a very significant speech by the commander in chief at a critical moment in the war on terror," he said, adding that Bush, who laid out goals for Iraq in a speech at the Army War College last year, would revisit those markers and underscore progress in his speech tonight at the home base of the 82nd Airborne Division.

What Bush should really say in his speech tonight was that it was a mistake to go into Iraq because there was no connection between 9/11 and the U.S. invasion. We hoodwinked the country and the world into believing us. In the process, we have brought nothing but shame and hatred upon us.
