"Mission Accomplished" sign, of course, was put up by
the members of the USS Abraham Lincoln saying that their mission
was accomplished. I know it was attributed somehow to some ingenious
advance man from staff..." -- George W. Bush (10/28)
banner is it, anyway?
George W. Bush's staff played more of a role in the "Mission
Accomplished" sign that hung on the carrier Abraham Lincoln
than the president suggested yesterday in a Rose Garden press
Another version of the story from mediawhoresonline.com
everybody seems to be missing the point...which is that Bush LIED
about how the banner got there. It clearly matches other backdrops
he has set up. His handlers micromanage every event he attends.
Any protesters are kept miles away from him. He never has an appearance
that is not completely set up beforehand so that they can take advantage
of it in any way possible. This banner was put there because he
foolishly thought that he HAD accomplished the war. He didn't realize
the Iraqi citizens would be so ungrateful about being bombed and
killed. He planned that aircraft landing so he could use it in ads
for the 2004 election. After the war continued and he realized that
the banner was making him look foolish, he's come up with this bs
to try to pretend he did not have anything to do with it. I will
never believe anything that comes out of his mouth.
its good to know someone who does't make mistakes. I bet it's lonely
all by yourself..
No one not
even those totally against the intital invasion foresaw Syarians
and such crossing the boarders to be mytras. When the active war
was declared over. It was over and is actually. Just have to stick
out through the trouble makers.
If he just
wouldn't talk down to his subjects, It would be a pleasure to believe
Why is it
that the only ones that make comments are the Bush haters. Very
few support him. "All lies!!!" 56% are saying it's a mistake.
One even says it's a bad poll. Get a life, and quit whinning about
Bush lying. All Politicians lie.
veterans day and see his photo op lie then.
a vote about the banner - just shows you how much those that love
the Bushes, love the Bushes and nothing you can say about them means
anything to them - don't believe me, ask my sister in law - she
actually stands outside the Crawford Ranch occassionally for hours
to catch a view of GW - barf
What is wrong
with you people who are saying that it is a mistake? The Bush crowd
NEVER does anything by mistake, except tell lies. He has lied so
many times that it is virtually impossible to keep track of them
all. Why don't you all ask yourself the question, "What would
I think about this if Clinton had done this?" If you can honestly
look at yourself in the mirror and say you would answer that it
was a simple mistake, then fine. I really doubt that any of you
could do that. Why is it ok to lie as the president, if he is on
your team? I will never understand the minds of the American people
ever again after this presidency.
pres would have had it right behind this is just another attack
on a good man doing a tough job. I mean would you rather had gore
or any democrat in office during this time. I know i don`t.
want lies? Listen for more than 15 seconds to any Democrat &
you will get LIES! Republicans are too busy supporting damn Demos
to have time to lie..All together now .. " I did not have sex
with that young lady ,,,..." ps; have a nice day
so many whoppers that he's hard to believe!
There should have been a third choice! Bush was correct!!
If one cannot
believe the President of the GOD bless the United States of America,
whom can one believe?
choices? A negative AND a negative? 10/29/03 11:00:40 AM MST
liberalism is sure showing lately.
it be accepted as it was presented. wanted by the crew and printed
by someone else.
idea no doubt. He and the rest of PNAC(Project for the New American
Century) are ruining our country. Go to their website and discover
how the intend to colonize the world.
I did not
vote here because you left off the real answer. "He said a
shorter version of the truth" should be the third choice. After
READING the article in the Air Force Times, I understood it to mean
that the ship's crew had the idea, but recieved help in getting
it printed from the White House. Big deal! Lots of places do not
make their own banners. It was not a mistake to credit the ship's
crew, nor was it a lie. Bad choices Brad!!
Bush can't be expected to remember all the little details. He's
having a hard enough time remembering why he sent troops to INVADE
the point if the crew came up with the message content. Their mission
WAS accomplished. Cliff
matter to the average voter how this man is lying to us? You know,
this is not a football game, the Bush Bears against the Clinton
Cougars, this is important. We'd better start paying attention.
ship did complete its mission in part 1 of Gulf 2.0.
a close call. I don't think he knows a helluva lot about ANYTHING
that goes on, so it could be a simple mistake, but based on his
Saddam-attacked-us-on-9/11 innuendo campaign, I'm going with "deliberate
