Pres. Admits He Lied Us Into War
AP via NYT: President Bush on Wednesday accepted personal responsibility for a controversial portion of last winter's State of the Union address dealing with claims that Saddam Hussein was seeking nuclear material in Africa. "I take personal responsibility for everything I say, absolutely,'' the president said at a White House news conference. Bush has been seeking to quell a controversy over a controversial claim that has dogged his administration for weeks.So, now he's going to step down, right?
The dude (in the "dude ranch" sense of the word) was oh so glib. "Shucks, since I can't bullshit my way out this bind, I reckon I'll just trot out my straight shooter persona for a while. You want me to take responsibility for words that came out of my own mouth? Bring 'em on little lady."
