looking for new jobs.
This hurts as bad as losing the election.
He had Tony Snow out yesterday finding a silver lining in the now certainty of his long-coveted Mexico-merger/amnesty coming true.
I'd prefer the brick. Would do less harm.
I don't see it this way. I really believe that Bush knows Rummy has to go for one reason or the other. He has to get an appointment WITH A Republican house and Senate, which means before January. They are leaving soon, remember that.
Rush is going to lose a lot of money when the Dems take his show off the air.
He said Nancy Pelosi and the Dems care about the security of our country as much as he does!!!!!!!!!!!!
THAT'S JUST WRONG......IT'S NOT TRUE...HOW CAN HE SAY THIS.....HE KNOWS THEY WOULD SELL US OUT IN A HEARTBEAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I LOVE my President....I hurt for him and Rumsfeld...
but PLEASE.....don't talk to us like children.
WE KNOW THE DEMS COULD'T GIVE A FLYING LEAP FOR OUR NATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
the polls in august, september - were worse then they were duing the final weeks.
Rummy would have left PRIOR to the election.....he didn't want to leave this mission.
"He just said that the Democrats are going to support our troops just like Republicans will."
This is why we lost - he is such an idiot - time to fight - the rats do not support the troops. I believe he has either lost his mind or is just plain stupid. The rats hate our troops - where has he been???????????????
I seriously am starting to believe that he and Rove planned this and they privately hate us conservatives who have core conservative values and beliefs.
I see two warring impulses in the President coming out in this press conference...impulses that have gone on consistently throughout his presidency, but are showing bigtime today. One of them is bad and one is good:
The bad impulse is his typical moderate Republican impulse to play nice with the Left.
The good one that he seems to always bear in mind that his first duty is to protect the country from external threats.
Yeah, but you don't torch your credibility in the interim.
It's one thing to lie to the press, it's another to rub their faces in it on national television. Stupid move.
Please don't do that, you are needed around here. Hopefully after a few days, we will all have a better perspective on things.
Losing the election didn't hurt me really, because I knew why we lost and it can be corrected if Reps understand why they lost. But hearing the President righ now, THAT is depressing. He's learned all the wrong lessons apparently.
It is unlike anything I've ever seen.
Come on Hank! They ALL lie. They just usually do it better. I can hear Bush's response on Leno all ready.
We all felt it. Just weird.
Hey, I really don't think Bush likes to outright lie. Spin and fluid-of-tongue is not who he is, if his assertion to being a devoted Christian is true. And I have no reason to think it isn't.
Bush's inability to honestly communicate has been a major problem of his administration. He swallows talking points and repeats the same words with differing tones. He thinks that's communication.
No I don't want to bash Bush today. It's tempting. He's right there, all big and bold like.
But this press conference, come on. It's bizarre.
He just said he apparently was working harder on the campaign than Rove was! (in context a question was asked about the reading contest b/w Rove and Prez?)
Yes, very painful to watch.
It's sad that Bush is making no attempt to improve the morale of his supporters.
He can be very blind.
Right now our Islamo Fascist enemies and our Democratic enemies are dancing for glee - planning on how they are going to furthur defeat the USA.
The Arab street dances today - and 87% of Jews vote Democratic!
