    Unconscionable

    "President Bush said that the public's decision to reelect him was a ratification of his approach to Iraq and that there was no reason to hold anyone accountable for mistakes or misjudgments in prewar planning or managing the violent aftermath." Washinton Post, 1/16/2005

    To quote David Letterman....

    WHAT????? WHAT???

    That's not what I said or meant. I believe everyone should be accountable for their actions, good and bad. Bush made a really stupid statement. Clinton made a stupid statement when he said "I never had sex with that girl." And we can find really dumb stuff from anyone we want, including us.

    But you'll have to excuse me if I take particular umbrage at a president that makes such a colossal mistake like Iraq (and the 1000+ deaths and 6000+ injured) and then says we shouldn't hold anyone accountable. To quote Dr. Phil, "what was he thinking???....."

    My belief is we start with Bush himself. Rumsfeld and Cheney must bear some responsibility, as must Connie.

    Look, as I said before, I spent a number of years in the intelligence community and I flat out guarantee that the CIA, DIA, NSA, AEC, ASA, USG, USAFSS, and State Department could not possibly have gotten Iraq THAT wrong..... So someone, somewhere lied and is lying. Many soldiers died because of it and many more were injured. So we should be finding answers to who and why.

    If the right can justify spending 7 years digging up dirt on Bill Clinton (that basically found fellatio that he lied about), don't you think we ought to be investigating this??

    Ummm...I think people should be held accountable for their actions.

    I think we can both agree that Denny Green holding AZ Card players accountable for their play is a good thing.

    In the same light, Bush needs to hold some people accountable for the situation in Iraq.

    I think we can agree that Iraq operation is not going perfectly.

    While almost nothing ever goes 'perfectly' some of it is controlable, and people need to be held accountable if they made a mistake.


    In the quote, Bush admits to "mistakes or misjudgments in prewar planning or managing the violent aftermath", yet basicly states that no one made any mistakes, because he is holding no one responsible or accountable.



    Despite saying all this, I would tend/hope to believe that this is just another one of GWB's mis-speaks.

    I guess my sarcasm didn't translate as planned.
    I agree with everything you've said UncleChris.

    Personally, I think the Bush administration is the most morally corrupt administration I have ever witnessed in my fifty plus years.

    That really is some stiff competition for "most morally corrupt" of the last fifty years. I can't declare the Bush administration victor in that area. "Most arrogant", that's what I'd say. I think Johnson and Nixon have to battle it out for most corrupt. Give the edge to Nixon for pure SOB meanness along with deception and coverup.
