Bush and Troops

Bush Flip-Flops on ‘Surge’

President Bush was against a troop surge before he was for it. In this clip from 2005, the president says that sending more troops to Iraq would “undermine our strategy of encouraging Iraqis to take the lead” and “suggest that we intend to stay forever.” Watch it.

Bill O'Reilly and Sunsara Taylor

O’Reilly Calls Peace Activist ‘Lunatic’

Wanna see Bill on the ropes? In this clip, the Fox News host goes head-to-head with WorldCantWait organizer (and sometimes Truthdig contributor) Sunsara Taylor. Unable (or unwilling) to counter her damning facts about the Iraq war, O’Reilly degenerates into name-calling.

Nancy Pelosi, appearing on “Face the Nation,” said the Congress will not fund a troop escalation without justification. Pelosi maintained that the Dems have no intention of cutting off funds for the war in general, although she insisted a “new direction” is necessary.

Cavuto and Frank

Barney Frank Does Battle With Fox’s Cavuto

One thing we love about Rep. Barney Frank is his total unwillingness to allow an interviewer to step on his answer, misrepresent his argument and then slither away. Neil Cavuto practices the dark arts for Fox News in this particular interview, as Frank steadfastly defends his position on exorbitant CEO pay against an avalanche of nasal smugness.

Cafferty

CNN’s Cafferty Deflates Bush Rhetoric

Transcripts never do justice to Jack Cafferty’s sardonic, punchy oratory, as is the case with this assault on Bush’s latest propaganda campaign: “So next week, when the president talks about sending more of your sons and daughters to die in Iraq, don’t think ‘surge.’ Recognize it for what it is.”

Rajiv Chandrasekaran

Untold Scandals of the Green Zone

The Washington Post’s Rajiv Chandrasekaran tells Jon Stewart that while many of Bush’s Iraq blunders have been pored over extensively, the story of American corruption and incompetence in the Green Zone has been largely ignored—from the 21-year-old former ice cream vendor who was sent to reform the Interior Ministry to the questioning of aspiring imperialists as to whether they had voted for Bush.

Olbermann to Bush: ‘You Do Not Own This Country’

During another of his notable special comments, Keith Olbermann took Bush to the woodshed over reports that the president plans to sell a troop escalation in Iraq as a “sacrifice.”

Edwards

Edwards on the Issues

Democrat John Edwards came out swinging on Friday’s “Hardball,” taking a swipe at the president, the war, the economy and even civic pride. But how will John Kerry’s former running mate fare against principled Dennis Kucinich or the Clinbama juggernaut that’s been gobbling up all the fund-raisers and media coverage it can find?
