Nice Polite Republicans call Bush on a Lie

In this almost excellent segment, Jackie Northam discusses the current shit that has been shoveled by the President and Veep.

Basically, they had the soundbite of Bushie telling us that "they saw the same intelligence I did... and came to the same conclusion..."

Michelle Norris then asked Jackie if Congress had seen the same intelligence as the president.

Jackie said rather simply: "No!"

The segment was short of excellence due the next analysis regarding the Robb-Silberman report and the others. First they didn't name the reports and cited two Senate commission reports, and then they said that both showed that the administration had not pressured the Intelligence agencies for faulty intelligence.

They did mention that one of the reports' scope did not cover the whole "use of intelligence." However, that is the crux of the matter. The use of the intelligence.

They almost vindicated themselves, but fell far short.

Listen to the whole thing...
