Mark Russell, you have been outdone!
Our president continues to amaze with his pithy comments. Political comedian Mark Russell once said he didn't need writers when the politicians say so many funny things themselves. He was right on target. President Bush said, with a tough look, "We are on the look." I'm not making that up.
Could you believe it when Bush spoke to the troops and said, "We will reveal the truth" about Saddam's weapons of mass destruction? One assumes he meant we will "learn" the truth because if he "reveals" the truth he might be impeached.
With nearly every independent expert suggesting that the administration either lied or exaggerated the threat to this country to justify the invasion, while poor Tony Blair begins to crack, the propaganda continues. Now it is the opponents of the war who, according to Bush, are "revisionists." Whoa Nelly! US troops are out of places to look and have pretty much given up trying to find the weapons and the president says we are the revisionists?
How would you like to be with the parents, spouse, or children of those who died in this war to stop the threat of "weapons of mass destruction" now that we know it was bunk from the beginning? At least LBJ had trouble sleeping at night.
Truth was a casualty before this war even started. Now it is more likely they will find an atomic bomb in Baghdad than the truth in the Pentagon or the White House.
