Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

I was watching the interview that newly appointed anchoress Katy Couric did with Bush last night, and nearly choked on my sandwich. Two quotes during the interview made me stop the Tivo to rewind and make sure I heard him correctly, because I simply couldn't believe what he had said:
Quote #1: "And - look, I understand people don't agree with war. I didn't wanna be a wartime president. This war came to us. We didn't ask for it."
EXCUSE ME???!!! I seem to remember you sending your scapegoat Secretary of State in front of the UN Security Council practically BEGGING to be allowed to invade Iraq using wildly erroneous data, and save us from what turned out not to be a threat to us at all, but a threat to the Iraqi people (Saddam that is).
Quote #2: "There - it's - you know, one of the hardest parts of my job is to connect Iraq to the war on terror."
Well, YEAH, D'uhh. Especially since the 9/11 Commission and others have repeatedly PROVED that there was no connection between 9/11 and Iraq!!
He went on to keep trying to push the notion that if we fail in Iraq, Osama bi Laden and other terrorists will use Iraq as a safe haven to launch more terrorist attacks against the US.
HELLO??? Pakistan is already a safe haven for this guy, and has been for the last 3 years apparently, but are we any closer to finding him? Nope.
Cut the head off the snake. Find him and just do it. This guy has no clue. At. All.
