People "Misunderstood" Bush

The MSM gasped in shock today over the miracle of Bush "admitting to errors" and "regrets" yesterday in his "speech" with Blair. I've had a chance to look at the video of the two of them lying to the people and "press" a couple of times now. I didn't buy it yesterday and I am more convinced upon each viewing of the total lack of sincerity in Bush's supposed admission of any errors. He sneered his way through it and a couple of times he gave "knowing looks" off to his left. He chuckled incessantly. I imagined Karl Rove in the wings, winking back and giving a thumbs up. Rather than a serious speech about the horrors of war, Bush had himself a good old time. He laughed and enjoyed telling his rehearsed bullshit. It was the usual staged pre-arranged question and answer session we always see with this, the most secretive White House in history. Blair wasn't much better. He sucked the air out of the room using filler and repetition. The difference is that he's not quite as comfortable at lying as is George and he gets a tad flustered. He knows we know he's lying. Bush-the-arrogant, being a pathological liar, suffers no such discomfort.

Q Mr. President, you spoke about missteps and mistakes in Iraq. Could I ask both of you which missteps and mistakes of your own you most regret?

PRESIDENT BUSH: Sounds like kind of a familiar refrain here -- saying "bring it on," kind of tough talk, you know, that sent the wrong signal to people. I learned some lessons about expressing myself maybe in a little more sophisticated manner -- you know, "wanted dead or alive," that kind of talk. I think in certain parts of the world it was misinterpreted, and so I learned from that. And I think the biggest mistake that's happened so far, at least from our country's involvement in Iraq is Abu Ghraib. We've been paying for that for a long period of time. And it's -- unlike Iraq, however, under Saddam, the people who committed those acts were brought to justice. They've been given a fair trial and tried and convicted.

He never actually admits to doing a thing wrong. It was the people who interpreted and misunderstood who made all the errors.

Panda, have you seen this? The preznit's speech writer. (It's a pretty large file, about 3.4 MB, but worth it.)
