Bush: "Americans voted for the surge in 2006"

From TPM we learn this from our President:

Last November the American people said they were frustrated and wanted change in our strategy in Iraq. I listened. Today General David Petraeus is carrying out a strategy that is dramatically different from our previous course. But the American people did not vote for failure, and that is precisely what the Democratic leadership’s bill would guarantee.

Hmm. Let's get this straight. The American voters replaced the Republican majorities in both Houses of Congress in order for Bush to send MORE troops to Iraq and ESCALATE our occupation.

In other news, up is down, right is left, and Alberto Gonzales is doing a "heckuva job."

If President Bush were a capable leader, he would be able to persuade the public to sway to his side of a unpopular position. Instead, the President plays word games: Americans "did not vote for failure" hence, according to Bush and counter to all logic and polling, we Americans voted for the current surge in Iraq last November. Even the most die-hard Republican would have a hard time suggesting that was an accurate consclusion to draw from the elections of 2006.

The President has had four years during which time he has made speeches asking for more time, more troops, more money and more patience from this nation.

Time and again, Bush has failed to persuade...now he's just making things up.


  • He's accidentally right on one point. In 2006, "the American people did not vote for failure." We voted for Democrats.
