Step right up, get yer new talking points

From my pal Jack, down in Pahrump: A special edition of the Nye County Dems newsletter takes on the Bush Administration's new talking points for Iraq...

IT’S NO LONGER “STAY THE COURSE” NOW IT’S “ADAPT TO WIN”

On ABC's This Week, President Bush told host George Stephanopoulos that the strategy in Iraq was "never stay the course."
Don’t believe me? Then watch the
video.

Remember, Ken Mehlman tried to pull the same thing back in August during his appearance on Meet The Press and Jon Stewart called him out on it. The new Mehlman talking point: "Adapt to win."
And
Dan Bartlett is jumping in there too: The White House earlier had said the report in Sunday's editions of the Times was not accurate. Bartlett said he thought it "might have been overwritten." "It's never been a stay the course strategy," he said.

My Note: So, it's never been "stay the course." Got that Ensign? Porter? Gibbons? And you, too, Heller. You Bush "yes" men. Check your FAX machines and get the new talking points.

This man, Bush, can lie with the straightest face. Watch the video again and see if you agree. Hard to imagine a more evident "flip-flop." Remember that Kerry. And those of you who voted for Bush in 2000 and 2004, how do you explain this?

One more thing. I didn’t hear any mention of any of this until I watched Keith Olbermann on MSNBC. I didn’t hear anything about this “flip-flop” on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, or FOX. I can tell you, however, it’s all over the blogs. I posted about it as well on the National News page of the
Nye Democrats’ website. Check it yourself. You get the news quicker on the internet than you do on TV, newspapers, bumper stickers or political slogans.
