Bush in Translation

In this election season with the charges of John Kerry flip-flopping on the issues, it seems surprising that President Bush has apparently done some of the same thing, the week he is to accept the nomination as the Republican Presidential nominee.

In an interview with NBC's Today Show host Matt Lauer (reg. BugMeNot), when President Bush was asked about the war on terrorism, Mr. Bush replied, "I don't think you can win it." However, later in the week, in an interview with radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh, he attempted to elaborate on his earlier comments by saying: "Really what I was saying to Lauer was, is that this is not the kind of war where you sit down and sign a peace treaty. It's a totally different kind of war. But we will win it." When you have a Presidential nominee, who also happens to be the sitting President overseeing current war on terrorism efforts, who is basing most of their campaign strategy on showing how effective they
have been in combating terrorism comes right out and says it is unwinnable, why should we be reassured and reelect him to office? There is one thing I do agree with the President about, and that is when he says, "I probably needed to be a little more articulate".

Yeah, probably wouldn't hurt.
