Talking Truth to Idiot

While Cheney was off in Iraq proving that every time he visits an explosion will go off nearby, his puppet king W was meeting with eleven Republican congress folk (including Mark Kirk R-IL and Charlie Dent R-PA) to talk about Iraq. It was, NBC's Tim Russert reported was "unvarnished." Now I've got to say, there have been many, MANY people giving Bush the unvarnished truth about Iraq in the past few years, including a few Republicans.

So what's the difference with this crew & this meeting? Apparently Bush claimed he didn't want to pass Iraq off to the next guy (yeah right, we'll fall for that one, NOT). One of the congressmen told Russert that they told Bush that "word about the war and its progress cannot come from the White House or even you, Mr. President. There is no longer any credibility. It has to come from Gen. Petraeus.”

Well, aside from wondering if Petraeus is hanging onto any credibility, sounds like a good meeting of party members with the party leader. And isn't it just so refreshing to see that only a mere FOUR ##%@@ YEARS AFTER WE WERE DRAGGED INTO THIS MESS that 11 Republican congressmen have found their guts?

Thanks NBC news, wake me when it's something worth actually reporting & being important.

It will be interesting to see if General Petraeus, who has been anointed the savior of Iraq, will deliver a verdict displeasing to the White House in September. In other words, will he call a disaster a disaster when the key moment comes?
