Funny when the pot who’s been yelling about the kettle is black too:
In a speech before the national convention of the American Legion, the president will make it “crystal clear” that America will win the war on terrorism, White House press secretary Scott McClellan said.
“Not only are we winning it, but we will win it,” McClellan said in describing Bush’s speech.
That message contradicts Bush’s statement, aired Monday in a pre-taped television interview, that “I don’t think you can win” the war on terror. That had Democrats running for the cameras to criticize Bush for being defeatist and flip-flopping from previous predictions of victory.
Despite the spin in this article by McClellan, I actually saw President Bush’s interview when he said that he doesn’t think we’ll win the war on terror. He wasn’t being figurative. He was being honest.
