Supreme Doublethink on Display: Stephanopolous Interview with Dubya

In 1984, Orwell foresaw a government which would rewrite history when prior decisions or statements became embarrassing. Even scarier was that the masses would simply follow along, blindly accepting the new version of history.

This administration has never been shy about emulating Big Brother, including its' attempts to tie Iraq to 9/11, then recently denying that it ever did so.

But now the lie has gotten even bigger.

On ABC's This Week with George Stephanopoulos, President Bush came up with an almost unbelievably big one.

George Stephanopoulos asked about James Baker's plan to develop a strategy for Iraq that is "between 'stay the course' and 'cut and run.'"

Bush responded, "We've never been stay the course, George!"

You can see clips of the interview at the ThinkProgress blog.
Well, I actually disagree with Lemming Herder: Dubya wasn't told NOT to lie, he was taught HOW to lie, but he's just not all that smart.

Does anyone remember the SNL skit with Dana Carvey (as GHWB) where he joked that his son was what would have been called retarded years ago?

So, either he (Dubya) is actually really that stupid that he believes his handlers that other people will believe this BS, or he is that wicked that he is somehow able to conscience lying in such an outright, doublethink manner.

Either way spells disaster for our beloved, once-great nation. These lowest of men must be removed; we must be vigorous in criticizing, voting and speaking out, lest they find some "reason" to postpone/cancel the elections. Did you read that? POSTPONE/CANCEL the election... the WH already formally asked the DOJ _how_ they could legally do it, with absolutely NO public uprising/outrcry whatsoever. (What message did that send them? and why are we so suprised by the doublespeak now?)

Get busy, folks! Dissent is the HIGHEST form of Patriotism~
