Bush Begins The TV Campaign

Besides FoxNews, that is. If what Howard Dean campaign manager Joe Trippi says is true, this Bush TV spot is proof positive they're pushing our faces in bullcrap to prove they can get away with anything. Here's the lowdown:

The ad shows George W. Bush giving his last State of the Union address, and then the screen flashes with the words that “some are now attacking the president for attacking the terrorists.”

This is the same State of the Union address in which Bush misled Congress and the American people with the false claim that Iraq had attempted to buy uranium in Africa -- the famous sixteen words that helped drive our country into an unnecessary war. And the war with Iraq had nothing to do with the terrorists who attacked the United States on 9/11.

The ad urges viewers to tell Congress “to support the president's policy of pre-emptive self defense."
