USA: Bush: I did not say ‘Stay the course’ in Iraq. Yeah right


Bush and war, cartoon

From AMERICAblog:

This morning, on “This Week,” George Bush said “Well, listen. We’ve never been ‘stay the course.'” (Think Progress has the video.)

He lied.

Bush has been saying “stay the course” for years.

In July of 2003, Bush was saying that exact phrase:

“We’re making steady progress,” he said.

“A free Iraq will mean a peaceful world. And it’s very important for us to stay the course, and we will stay the course.”

Isn’t Dick Cheney part of the Bush “we”?

Just months ago, on July 21, 2006, Dick Cheney said “stay the course” was their position:

“This conflict is a long way from over,” Cheney said at a fundraising appearance for a GOP congressional candidate.

“It’s going to be a battle that will last for a very long time.

It is absolutely essential that we stay the course.”

Unfortunately for the troops in Iraq and the Iraqi people, the Bush “stay the course” strategy was really just a political strategy.

It’s not working as a political strategy and it’s never worked as an Iraq strategy.

Bush just lies.

Like he lied on ‘Weapons of mass destruction‘.

On supposed Iraq-Al Qaeda links.

On … etc.
