or be truthful about nothing more than phraseology, people won’t believe you when you’re telling the truth about matters of graver importance:

Bush: �We�ve Never Been Stay The Course�

During an interview today on ABC�s This Week, President Bush tried to distance himself from what has been his core strategy in Iraq for the last three years. George Stephanopoulos asked about James Baker�s plan to
develop a strategy for Iraq that is �between �stay the course� and �cut and run.��

Bush responded, �We�ve never been stay the course, George!�

Bush is wrong:

BUSH: We will stay the course. [8/30/06]

BUSH: We will stay the course, we will complete the job in Iraq. [8/4/05]

BUSH: We will stay the course until the job is done, Steve. And the temptation is to try to get the President or somebody to put a timetable on the definition of getting the job done. We�re just going to stay the course. [12/15/03]

BUSH: And my message today to those in Iraq is: We�ll stay the course. [4/13/04]

BUSH: And that�s why we�re going to stay the course in Iraq. And that�s why when we say something in Iraq, we�re going to do it. [4/16/04]

BUSH: And so we�ve got tough action in Iraq. But we will stay the course. [4/5/04]

STEPHANOPOULOS: James Baker says that he�s looking for something between �cut and run� and �stay the course.�

BUSH: Well, hey, listen, we�ve never been �stay the course,� George. We have been � we will complete the mission, we will do our job, and help achieve the goal, but we�re constantly adjusting to tactics. Constantly…

Blah blah blah. He’s so pathetic that he’s even lying about his own lying rhetoric. One can thank the Republican noise machine (Google the term) for the perception that Bill Clinton was a bigger liar than this putz. The more oblivious you are, the more you must try to deny reality to create a perception of competence. And Bush has been doing some very serious denial.
