President Bush Resorts to Quoting “Baghdad Bloggers”
Is this what it’s come to? The President of the United States quoting two bloggers in Baghdad as proof his failed policies are really working, despite reality?
Yet, the Iraqi people are beginning to say — see positive changes. I want to share with you how two Iraqi bloggers — they have bloggers in Baghdad, just like we’ve got here — (laughter) — “Displaced families are returning home, marketplaces are seeing more activity, stores that were long shuttered are now reopening. We feel safer about moving in the city now. Our people want to see this effort succeed. We hope the governments in Baghdad and America do not lose their resolve.” – President Bush
Just think about it for a minute. And after that, think about how much these “bloggers” had to say sounds like a recycled White House press release. “Resolve”?!?
