Bush is on the warpath -- against Democrats and the media

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Campaign 2006 will be all war all the time. Bush has nothing to run on, so he's running on the biggest failure of all -- Iraq. He can't vanquish the insurgents in Iraq and he can't capture Osama, but he's playing the tough guy against the Democrats and the press. And, like the Bush strategy for Iraq, the campaign strategy is based on lies and falsehoods:

With opposition to the war threatening to hurt the GOP in this fall's congressional elections, Bush gave an impassioned plea for voters to re-elect Republicans who have supported his national security policies. He repeatedly pointed his finger in the air to emphasize his points and at several points his voice rose to a shout.

"Make no mistake about it, there's a group in the opposition party who are willing to retreat before the mission is done," Bush said. "They're willing to wave the white flag of surrender. And if they succeed, the United States will be worse off and the world will be worse off."
As Think Progress noted, White House aide Dan Bartlett couldn't really name anyone who wants to wave the white flag. But we all know that doesn't stop Bush from saying it. He lies.

In the new campaign speech, Bush, whose staff outed an undercover CIA spy, had the audacity to say this:
"There can be no excuse for anyone entrusted with vital intelligence to leak it, and no excuse for any newspaper to print it," Bush said.
How can anyone take this line of attack seriously when the biggest offenders work for Bush?
