Bush Speak

“When it comes to creating jobs for American workers, we are turning the corner and we're not going back.”
President Bush, 8/4/04


“The nation's payroll growth slowed dramatically in July with a paltry 32,000 jobs being added - a potentially troubling sign that the rough patch the economy hit in June was no aberration.”
CNN, 8/6/04

And even if Bush didn't lie about Iraq and al Quaeda, all he's done is show that he's really too stupid to analyze evidence, as are those that he surrounds himiself with.

President Bush said on 9/25/02 that "you can't distinguish between al Qaeda and Saddam." He said this, even though top lawmakers from his own party, like Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE), acknowledged weeks beforehand that "Saddam is not in league with al Qaeda" and that "I have not seen any intelligence that would lead me to connect Saddam Hussein to al Qaeda." Immediately after Bush made his initial claim, USA Today reported several intelligence experts "expressed skepticism" about the claim, with a Pentagon official calling the president's assertion an "exaggeration." No matter, Bush ignored these concerns and described Saddam Hussein as "a man who loves to link up with al Qaeda." Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said the evidence was "bulletproofaccurate and not debatable." Only weeks later, Europe's top terrorism investigator reported "We have found no evidence of links between Iraq and al Qaeda." Nonetheless, Powell ignored this and stood before the United Nations and claimed there was a "sinister nexus between Iraq and the al Qaeda." A month later, Rice backed him up, saying al Qaeda "clearly has had links to the Iraqis."
