WASHINGTON, Jan. 14 /U.S. Newswire/ -- House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement today on remarks by President Bush in an interview with regional newspapers yesterday in which he said he regretted saying "bring 'em on" in reference to insurgents in Iraq who wanted to attack our troops:
"The President has finally acknowledged that his taunting the Iraqi insurgents by saying 'bring 'em on' has had unintended consequences, likely increasing the dangers faced by our troops in Iraq. Although unintended, the consequences of such remarks were all too predictable.
"It was also predictable that creating a chaotic security situation in Iraq would make the country what it was not before the war -- a 'magnet for terrorists,' a result recently confirmed by the National Intelligence Council.
"More than two years ago, senior military experts such as General Eric Shinseki warned against sending too small a force to Iraq, in part because they knew that any security vacuum created by the fall of Saddam Hussein would be filled by elements united only by the desire to kill Americans. One of the many mistakes of the Iraq war is that the President did not have a plan for preventing Iraq from becoming a hotbed for terrorists. We will be paying the price of that mistake for years to come.
"Having admitted the error of his words, the President must admit the error of his ways."
I agree. It was foolish of President Bush. And what good does he think he accomplished? It irritates the people who voted for him and gives ammunition to the liberals who condemn him at every turn.
I agree. Bush should have stood his ground and said not one thing. He was ahead in the game, now this bloodsuckers will want more and more out of him.
Media and the Demorats team tagging again.
First, the media lies about what the President said, then the Demorats comment on it.
Is it really that blatant, or is it just me?
Man they can`t get Britney Spears pants to stretch as tight as the skin on her face.And then that grimace.
It's a shame that she ever made it to the egg.
Wouldn't you hate to be her.
Totaly irrelevant. Totaly on the defensive and laughed at for attempting weak and ineffectual attacks.
What a great time for a woman to lead. Down the tubes goes the party and a woman is unable to stop the slide. The good ol boys will never let a woman control again.
Heard that. He should have stood his ground.
I CALL ON BUSH TO APOLOGIZE TO THE AMURRICKIN PIPPLE. THE PRESIDENTS FAILED POLICY ON IRAQ HAS LED TO THE DEATHS OF OVER A THOUSAND OF OUR FINEST YOUNG MEN AND WYMYN AND MADE THE BAD PEOPLE REALLY ANGRY AT US. I HAVE A PLAN... I HAVE A PLAN... I... HAVE... A... PLAN... W IS FOR WRONG.
(imagine sonorous drone)
To be fair, Pelosi actually used to be marginally attractive about 20 years ago. (You be the judge:
Her current hideousness may be the result of age, surgery, or perhaps it's just her inner vileness bubbling to the surface.
beauty is skin deep, but ugliness goes to the bone!
Yes I am still fuming about this.
Sign my name to the card, would ya?
Oh, no - she's rich. And people might find out.
Oh, no - people aren't buying this garbage. But she'll keep saying it anyway - BOOOSH is the real criminal!
Oh, no - even she doesn't believe the bilge she oozes.
Oh, no - now a head Dem and she still doesn't know what to do.
About the time she is standing before the Lord in judgement.
By then it will be too late.
Oh, please. Some of us actually know what he said. Acknowledging reactions to what he said does not amount to regretting what he said. He regrets the way it was reacted to. He said nothing wrong and he was bashed before for not saying he was sorry (which he still has not said and never will).
You are making a big deal out of a big nothing and you're not doing any of us any favors with your little temper tantrum.
Yesssss...... It's never too late.
