We've Never Been Stay the Course...Dunk Away!

"Political language. . . is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind." - George Orwell

Welcome back to never never land. Just when one thought incredulity of Bush commentary could rise no higher, we have this gem. Last week, in an interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulus, Bush said that his administration has never been "stay the course" on Iraq. This after the past few years of saying nothing but "stay the course." See here.

But here are some lowlights...

Bush: ‘We’ve Never Been Stay The Course’

During an interview today on ABC’s This Week, President Bush tried to distance himself from what has been his core strategy in Iraq for the last three years. George Stephanopoulos asked about James Baker’s plan to develop a strategy for Iraq that is “between ’stay the course’ and ‘cut and run.’”

Bush responded, ‘We’ve never been stay the course, George!’

Bush is wrong:

BUSH: We will stay the course. [8/30/06]

BUSH: We will stay the course, we will complete the job in Iraq. [8/4/05]

BUSH: We will stay the course until the job is done, Steve. And the temptation is to try to get the President or somebody to put a timetable on the definition of getting the job done. We’re just going to stay the course. [12/15/03]

BUSH: And my message today to those in Iraq is: We’ll stay the course. [4/13/04]

BUSH: And that’s why we’re going to stay the course in Iraq. And that’s why when we say something in Iraq, we’re going to do it. [4/16/04]

BUSH: And so we’ve got tough action in Iraq. But we will stay the course. [4/5/04]

STEPHANOPOULOS: James Baker says that he’s looking for something between “cut and run” and “stay the course.”

BUSH: Well, hey, listen, we’ve never been “stay the course,” George. We have been — we will complete the mission, we will do our job, and help achieve the goal, but we’re constantly adjusting to tactics. Constantly.

Let's see that again to belive it.

If that utter revisionism isn't enough, check out the recent amazing semantic juggling by the VP in charge, Cheney. Dick talks about the "no-brainer" (using water or a dunk in extracting info from detainees). Good thing for him that Bush passed the Military Commissions Act of 2006.

Enter damage control. Squealer, aka Tony Snow(job), blows the spin, claiming nothing of the sort happened...nothing to see here...move along. Just when one thought things couldn't get stranger, the Orwellian Minitrue spew just keeps on coming!

See here or here or here or here! No biggie, right? Torture. It's the new Habeas Corpus. Or, better yet, as the LA Times Howard Rodman recently put it, McCarthyism without due process.

Just wave a magic wand and the past is not just forgotten, it's changed to match present agendas. Opportunistic flip flopping galore. Let the sheeple beware.

Nevermind the old Clintonian debates over what the meaning of "is" is. We've yet again surprisingly reached new ground in absurdity and outright lies. Who will notice? Stay tuned November 7. But, don't hold your breath. Many Dems have been marching to the same draconian beat of that same imperial drummer and many in the public simply continue to fiddle while the rest of the world burns.
