"Get a Life!"

Win Without War is a coalition of liberal groups including, among others, Feminist Majority, Greenpeace, MoveOn.org, NAACP, National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, National Organization for Women (NOW), and Rainbow/Push Coalition.

The group recently ran a two-page ad in newspapers across the country featuring the headline "They Lied" over pictures of President Bush, Vice President Cheney, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, and then National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice. Under the pictures are six quotes, which the ad alleges were lies.

The ad also featured a list of American military personnel killed in Iraq, and under the list are the words "They Died."

FactCheck.org analyzed the ad and found that

The brief quotes all seem starkly false in hindsight. But some are a bit too stark – they look a bit different when read in full context. Furthermore, calling them lies suggests Bush and his advisers knew they were wrong at the time. And a bipartisan commission concluded earlier this year that what the Bush administration told the world about Iraqi weapons – while tragically mistaken – was based on faulty intelligence.

Mike Geiselman, a liberal who often posts and comments on the local Kokomo Perspective blog, says about the FactCheck.org analysis that

The impression I get is that while Bush didn't intentionally lie, he was either duped or completely out of the loop.

Anyway you look at it, he doesn't come off looking too good.

The President's conclusions on Iraqi WMDs were based upon intelligence reports, the same intelligence reports upon which leading Democrats had based their opinions when they made the same claims about Iraqi WMDs. So if the President doesn't come off looking too good, neither do Sandy Berger, Barbara Boxer, Robert Byrd, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, William Cohen, Tom Daschle, John Edwards, Al Gore, Ted Kennedy, John Kerry, and Nancy Pelosi, all of whom claimed that Iraq had WMDs .

I have never believed the "Bush lied" nonsense. In a July 26th post, I explained my thoughts on that in some detail. If you were not reading this blog in July and have not read "Bush Lied" - A Mindless Rant I invite you to do so.

I think the most amazing thing about this entire post is that liberals are still making the "Bush lied" claim. What was the purpose of the Win Without War ad? What do they hope to accomplish? Even if Bush did lie, which is an absurdity for anyone who wants to examine the facts with any degree of intellectual honesty, what good do they feel an ad like this will do them? Bush is not running for office again, yet they remain focused on him. They seem to have an obsessive preoccupation with destroying this President. I don't believe they can accomplish that goal, but even if they did, what would they get out of it? Nothing but the fulfillment of their sick obsession.

These people give new meaning to the old cliché "Get a Life!"

President Bush and his friends are telling the truth and that truth is that they don't care about the world, especially the People of the United States. All they want is power and control.
"Either you're with me or the Enemy." Is that really a good thing to say, because many people aren't with him but they're not the enemy. The problem is the fact that Bush can get away with saying things like this and still be in control of an entire country especailly one as modern and independant as our's is.

Thanks for visiting my website and for commenting. But if you're going to comment, you need to be accurate. What the President actually said was "Either you are with us or you are with the terrorists." "Us" means the United States. There is a big difference between us and me.

Also, when you say that "President Bush and his friends...don't care about the world, especially the People of the United States," you're making a statement of opinion with absolutely no evidence to support your statement. Try to look at facts and make a decision about how you feel about issues rather that just try to repeat what you've heard someone else say.

Thanks again, and visit my site often.
