Mr. Bush, you had no right to order General Petraeus to become your front man.
And he obviously should have refused that order and resigned rather than ruin his military career.
The upshot is and contrary it is, to the MoveOn advertisement he betrayed himself more than he did us.
I thought there was a certain childish aspect to playing on the General's name, but the endless BushCo whining has promoted a billion dollars worth of advertising for a $65K NYT ad. When he's wearing that uniform he doesn't get to play at politics, something he'd already demonstrated prior to the latest disgrace. But Kieth has some more for me to tease you with:
But Mr. Bush, you have hidden behind the General’s skirts, and today you have hidden behind the skirts of ‘the planted last question’ at a news conference, to indicate once again that your presidency has been about the tilted playing field, about no rules for your party in terms of character assassination and changing the fabric of our nation, and no right for your opponents or critics to as much as respond.
I like to write and I like to stir you up, but this guy's a pro and he should rightfully be well paid to produce this. Go on over and let somebody put words on the screen you wished you'd said...
