Ask him about any other disaster during his administration (9-11, New Orleans, civil war in Iraq) and it's always "no one could have foreseen [insert disaster here]". Every other disaster, including the current mess in Iraq, totally unpredictable, according to W. But if we pull out of Iraq?

["If America were to pull out before Iraq could defend itself, the consequences would be absolutely predictable — and absolutely disastrous," Bush said. "We would be handing Iraq over to our worst enemies."]

Absolutely predictable? For a guy who insisted that no one could have predicted that a Category 5 hurricane would breech levees rated only to withstand Category 3 strength, he seems awfully certain now. Wonder what he'll say when Iraq erupts into open civil war, a very real (and predicted) danger according to the CIA.

So it's predictable now?


  1. AMEN!

  2. Dang sure seem bothered about this. Are you suggesting that GW is wrong, or that he should have rebuilt levies in the gulf as soon as he got in office, even though they are older than me (and I was born before GW was pres...). Let's face it, bad things happen, its life.

  3. I'm saying his consistent response for every bad thing that happens during his administration is "We didn't expect [incident]." Go back and read or listen to his response for every disaster. It's always the same line.

    But now he trumpets without reservation that the outcome for pulling out of Iraq is "absolutely predictable". Are you kidding me? This from the guy whose excuse for every thing is "We didn't think it would happen." Bad things do happen in life and unfortunately President Bush seems unconcerned in being prepared for that. But is he quick to make dire predictions for everyone else or, more accurately, for strawmen. People are calling for a *plan* for troop reduction, not an immediate withdrawal. His prediction is yet another of his many "strawman" attacks.
