Bush Laughs: It's Bad in Iraq
Stop the presses: Bush has finally admitted that "it's bad in Iraq." Followed by a chuckle. Thank God for reporters who ask real questions.
At a press conference this morning with British Prime Minister Tony Blair, a reporter asked President Bush whether his use of the word "unsettling" to describe the violence in Iraq would “convince many people that you're still in denial about how bad things are in Iraq."They continue to laugh and lie as Iraqis and Americans continue to die.
Bush responded curtly, "It's bad in Iraq. That help?" and then chuckled.
Bush later said, "You know, in all due respect, I've been saying it a lot. I understand how tough it is, and I've been telling the American people how tough it is."
On 10/25, Bush said the U.S. was "absolutely" winning the Iraq war. On 10/17, Vice President Cheney claimed the "general overall situation" in Iraq was going "remarkably well."
