Rhetoric and the W, Rove and Co

I posted this comment over at Shea's location. Thought it would make a fitting first entry for today in anticipation of the forthcoming rhetorical Rovewashing of hands that will take place later today at Ft. Bragg.

As Radar O'Reily would say..."Wait for it..." and the helicoptors rumble over the hills carrying more wounded and nearly dead GIs on our behalf and at the behest of the W, Rove and Co.
Blood spills on many soils, and souls lost number more than souls saved by the W,Rove and Co.

I love it when they trot out the old nine eleven gambit as an excuse for the war in Iraq. I do remember, and if I am not mistaken, nine eleven happened on their watch.

And it is funny, you know. It seems like a direct correlation. As the morass gets deeper, the rhetoric more simple. Brace yourselves for a healthy dose of Bushspeak later this day.
P.S. here's another great link provided by a friend via EMail:
Look for more good stuff here: http://thinkprogress.org/ In 1999, George W. Bush criticized President Clinton for not setting a timetable for exiting Kosovo, and yet he refuses to apply the same standard to his war. George W. Bush, 4/9/99: “Victory means exit strategy, and it’s important for the president to explain to us what the exit strategy is.” VERSUS Donald Rumsfeld, 11/10/03: “But let me be clear. The goal is not to reduce the number of U.S. forces in Iraq. It’s not to develop an exit strategy.” -- A liar needs a good memory. The net never forgets.
