Was that President Bush In the Rose Garden this morning or was it Chubby Checker?
In one sequence during today's press conference, President Bush was able to twist reason so savagely that I'm surprised that the press didn't get up and dance. That is, except for the two correspondents whose children who were in danger from the terrorists.
Follow me here, because this is just precious.
1. President Bush reiterated that if we left before we defeated Al Quaeda that they would follow us here.
2. He said that we would leave if the Iraqi government told us to.
So, the guy who's looking out for us (when O'Reilly is on vacation) would allow Al Quaeda to come here if the Iraqi Government said so.
If the President believes that #1 was true (no reason to disbelieve him as he's never lied to us before), and #2, he really means that he would pull the troops out based on what a foreign government decides (not the majority of Americans), then it would seem that he's placed our future - including David Gregory's children's future - and our safety, in the hands of a foreign government, that afterall, is only one year old.
Treason? In the least, it would seem that this is outsourcing our country's very security to a country that isn't even toilet trained.
So Iraq, which can barely upload their own security can dictate ours.
Yep, I'd say it's treason.
