We were rather annoyed when we discovered that George had said this. We can appreciate Steve Pizzo’s analysis:
LIE #2: When asked during his 60-Minute’s interview last Sunday if he felt he owed the Iraqi people an apology for botching the management of the war, Bush responded, “Not at all. “We liberated that country from a tyrant,” Bush said. “I think the Iraqi people owe the American people a huge debt of gratitude.”
Seriously! Let’s try the question another way, George. Say I came down to your Crawford ranch – uninvited — with the self-appointed mission of ridding your ranch of rattle snakes. In the process I kill your horses, mow down your fences, burn down your barn, cut down the power poles to your home and accidentally killed half your neighbors in the process. Then, while I did kill some big rattlers, I seemed to have stirred up nests of the little buggers and now you have more snakes on the plain than ever before. When you suggest I leave, instead I announce I am bringing in more of exterminators, promising this time to finish the job. Would you be reassured? Would you be thankful? Or might you feel that I owe you an apology – not to mention a new horse?
