This video from the USA is called Cheney: I never linked Iraq with 9/11. Oh really?
From Think Progress blog in the USA:
Boehner booed by construction workers’ union.
Fox News tells the story:
House [Republican] Minority Leader John Boehner was booed on Wednesday at a construction workers’ union legislative forum for saying the United States needs to fight the war in Iraq or face terror attacks at home.
“Who doesn’t believe that if we just pull out of Iraq and come home that the terrorists won’t follow us here and we’ll be fighting them on the streets of America?” Boehner, R-Ohio, said to members attending the AFL-CIO’s Building & Construction Trades Department’s legislative forum.
Apparently, most in the crowd don’t believe it.
Boos from the audience grew louder as Boehner continued, “This is a, ladies and gentlemen, this is a serious fight.”
Just like with Merle Haggard, people that the media might expect to be pro Iraq war, do not live up to that expectation; certainly not if the discredited old 9/11-Iraq connection lie is wheeled out by Bush supporters like Boehner.
Update June 2009: In an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) pinned the blame for his party’s current failures on the Bush presidency: here.
