Bush Speaks on Missing Explosives
The Boy King has broken his silence on the al Qaqaa story that Frank shared with us here. And, unsurprisingly, he has some incredibly weak shit to offer.
"Now the senator is making wild charges about missing explosives when his top foreign policy adviser admits, quote, 'we do not know the facts.' Think about that. The senator's denigrating the action of our troops and commanders in the field without knowing the facts…Denigrating the actions of our troops? Umm, ok dipshit. That's precisely what Kerry -- who served in a friggin' war by the way -- is doing. Actually, no, it isn't. He's denigrating you, Mr. President. The guy calling the shots. But considering how you see yourself as never having made a mistake and all, I could see where you might miss that. After all, if anyone is at fault, it certainly could not be you, right?
This investigation is important and it's ongoing, and a political candidate who jumps to conclusions without knowing the facts is not a person you want as your commander in chief."
Anyways, gotta admit that as a matter of principle I agree with Bush on his last point. Jumping to conclusions before you know the facts is certainly not a good thing. That being said, jumping conclusions before you know the facts and sticking to those conclusions after an avalanche of facts clearly illustrate that your conclusions are wildly inaccurate is just a tad bit worse, no?
