    We cannot risk another 500 days of Bush (video)

    Keith Olbermann’s Special Comment tonight is without a doubt, one of his hardest hitting and most emotional to date. Keith absolutely lays waste to President Bush’s lies and rhetoric about the surge. He contrasts his callous disregard for the truth and the troops between his six hour photo op in Iraq and the interview with Draper released this weekend.

    This video is a must-see, hold on to your hats.

    And there it is, sir. We’ve caught you.

    Your goal is not to bring some troops home — maybe — if we let you have your way now;

    Your goal is not to set the stage for eventual withdrawal;
    You are, to use your own disrespectful, tone-deaf word, playing at getting the next Republican nominee to agree to jump into this bottomless pit with you, and take us with him, as we stay in Iraq for another year, and another, and another, and anon.

    Transcripts below the fold:

    Finally tonight, a Special Comment about Mr. Bush’s trip, and his startling admission of the true motive for this war, which was revealed in his absence.
    And so he is back from his annual surprise gratuitous photo-op in Iraq, and what a sorry spectacle it was.

    But it was nothing compared to the spectacle of one unfiltered, unguarded, horrifying quotation in the new biography to which Mr. Bush has consented.
    As he deceived the troops at Al-Asad Air Base yesterday with the tantalizing prospect that some of them might not have to risk being killed and might get to go home, Mr. Bush probably did not know that, with his own words, he had already proved that he had been lying — is lying… will be lying — about Iraq.
    He presumably did not know, that there had already appeared those damning excerpts from Robert Draper’s book “Dead Certain.”

    “I’m playing for October-November,” Mr. Bush said to Draper.
    That, evidently, is the time during which, he thinks he can sell us the real plan.

    Which is, to quote him: “To get us in a position where the presidential candidates, will be comfortable about sustaining a presence.”
    Comfortable, that is, with saying about Iraq, again quoting the President, “stay longer.”

    And there it is, sir. We’ve caught you.

    Your goal is not to bring some troops home — maybe — if we let you have your way now;

    Your goal is not to set the stage for eventual withdrawal;
    You are, to use your own disrespectful, tone-deaf word, playing at getting the next Republican nominee to agree to jump into this bottomless pit with you, and take us with him, as we stay in Iraq for another year, and another, and another, and anon.

    Everything you said about Iraq yesterday, and everything you will say, is a deception, for the purpose of this one cynical, unacceptable, brutal goal — perpetuating this war indefinitely.

    War today, war tomorrow, war forever!
    And you are playing at it!
    Playing!

    A man with any self-respect, having inadvertently revealed such an evil secret, would have already resigned and fled the country!
    You have no remaining credibility about Iraq, sir.

    And yet, yesterday at Al-Asad, Mr. Bush kept playing — and this time, using the second of his two faces.

    The President told reporters, “They, (General Petraeus and Ambassador Crocker) “tell me if the kind of success we are now seeing continues, it will be possible to maintain the same level of security with fewer American forces.”

    And so, Mr. Bush got his fraudulent headlines today: “Bush May Bring Some Troops Home.”

    While the reality is, we know from what he told Draper, that the President’s true hope is that they will not come home; but that they will stay there, because he is keeping them there now, in hope that those from his political party fighting to succeed him, will prolong this unendurable disaster into the next decade.

    But, to a country dying of thirst, the President seemed to vaguely promise a drink from a full canteen — a promise predicated on the assumption that he is not lying.

    Yet you are lying, Mr. Bush. Again. But now, we know why.
    You gave away more of yourself than you knew in the Draper book
    And you gave away more still, on the arduous trip back out of Iraq — hours in the air, without so much as a single vacation.

    “If you look at my comments over the past eight months,” you told reporters, “it’s gone from a security situation — in the sense that we’re either going to get out and there will be chaos, or, more troops. Now, the situation has changed, where I’m able to speculate on the hypothetical.”

    Mr. Bush, the only “hypothetical” here is that you are not now holding our troops hostage.

    You have no intention of withdrawing them.
    But that doesn’t mean you can’t pretend you’re thinking about it, does it?
    That is your genius, sir — as you see it, anyway.
    You can deduce what we want — we, the people, remember us? — and then use it against us.

    You can hold that canteen up and promise it to the parched nation.
    And the untold number of Americans whose lives have not been directly blighted by Iraq — or who do not realize that their safety has been reduced and not increased by Iraq — they will get the bullet points: ‘Bush is thinking about bringing some troops home. Bush even went to Iraq.’

    You can fool some of the people all of the time, can’t you, Mr. Bush?
    You are playing us!

    And as for the most immediate victims of the President’s perfidy and shameless manipulation — those troops, yesterday sweating literally as he spoke at Al-Asad Air Base…

    Tonight, again sweating figuratively in The Valley Of The Shadow Of Death…
    The President saved, for them, the most egregious “playing” in the entire trip.

    “I want to tell you this about the decision, about my decision about troop levels. Those decisions will be based on a calm assessment by our military commanders on the conditions on the ground — not a nervous reaction by Washington politicians to poll results in the media.”

    One must compliment Mr. Bush’s writer.

    That, perhaps, was the mostly perfectly crafted phrase of his Presidency.
    For depraved indifference to Democracy, for the craven projection of political motives onto those trying to save lives and save a nation, for a dismissal of the value of the polls and the importance of the media… for a summary of all he does not hold dear about this nation or its people — nothing… could top that.

    As if, sir, you listened to all the “calm assessments” of our military commanders –rather than firing the ones who dared say The Emperor Has No Clothes, and The President, No Judgment;

    As if, sir, your entire presidency was not a “nervous reaction”, and you yourself, nothing but a Washington politician;

    As if, sir, “the media” does not largely divide into those parts your minions are playing, and those others who unthinkingly and uncritically serve as your echo chamber, at a time when the nation’s future may depend on the airing of dissent.

    And as if, sir, those polls were not so overwhelming, and not so clearly reflective of the nation’s agony and the nation’s insistence.
    But this President has ceased to listen.

    This President has decided that night is day, and death is life, and enraging the world against us, is safety.

    And this laziest of Presidents, actually interrupted his precious time off to fly to Iraq to play at a photo opportunity with soldiers, some of whom will — on his orders — be killed before the year, maybe the month, is out.
    Just over 500 days remain in this Presidency.

    Consider the dead who have piled up on the battlefield in these last 500 days.

    Consider the singular fraudulence of this President’s trip to Iraq yesterday, and the singular fraudulence of the selling of the Petraeus Report in these last 500 days.

    Consider how this President has torn away at the fabric of this nation in a manner of which terrorists can only dream in these last 500 days.
    And consider again how this President has spoken to that biographer: that he is “playing for October-November.” The goal in Iraq is “To get us in a position where the presidential candidates will be comfortable about sustaining a presence” and consider how this revelation contradicts every other rationale he has offered in these last 500 days.

    In the context of all that… now, consider… these next 500 days.
    Mr. Bush, our presence in Iraq must end.

    Even if it means your resignation.
    Even if it means your impeachment.

    Even if it means a different Republican to serve out your term.
    Even if it means a Democratic Congress — and those true Patriots among the Republicans — standing up and denying you another penny for Iraq, other than for the safety and the safe conduct home of our troops.

    This country cannot run the risk of what you can still do to this country in the next 500 days…

    Not while you, sir… are playing.

    [QUOTE][B]Fair Warning to the Far-Left: Summer may be Over, but the Heat on you Is Just Beginning
    Wednesday, September 05, 2007

    By Bill O'Reilly[/B]

    While on vacation last week, I did something very worthwhile. I finished reading the book "Lone Survivor" by Navy Seal Officer Marcus Luttrell, whom we had on the broadcast a couple of weeks ago.

    Now the book captures the true spirit of America, along with the danger we all face from the jihadists that Luttrell fought so bravely. I recommend the "Lone Survivor" to anyone who wants to know the truth about the USA and the brave people who are defending it.

    In contrast, I read yet another editorial by The New York Times lamenting that more Americans were not prosecuted and destroyed by the Abu Ghraib scandal. Marcus Luttrell and I have one thing in common. We are both sick of far-left media like The Times demonizing this country, concentrating hard on the bad stuff, which in a time of war will always happen.

    On page 376 of the book, he writes, "I am left feeling that no matter how much time the drip-drop-drop of hostility toward us is perpetuated by the liberal press, the American people simply do not believe it. Some members of the media might think they can brainwash the public any time they like, but I know they can't. Not here. Not in the United States of America."

    Tonight and in the weeks to come, "“The Factor”" will continue spotlighting the blatant bias and dishonesty that is running unchecked among some in the American media. Dissent is fine, dishonesty is not. When you have elements at NBC News lying outright on a daily basis, when you have The Seattle Post Intelligencer refusing to help the FBI in a terror investigation, when you have The San Francisco Chronicle printing hate filled anti-Christian diatribes when the paper would never do that with any other religious or ethnic group, you have a situation that is out of control.

    Fair warning to the far left, summer may be over, but the heat on you is just beginning.

    Finally, besides "Lone Survivor," I would like you to read my column on Iraq, which is posted on BillOreilly.com. I thought long and hard about this column and believe it is one of the best I've written. Iraq has turned millions of people against America. And that in itself is a huge tragedy.

    Now the USA must find a new strategy without further damaging the nation. A note to the presidential candidates, that is job one. And that is “The Memo.”

    Most Ridiculous Item

    Time now for "The Most Ridiculous Item of the Day." We have a correction to make. A few weeks ago we did a report on some anti-Semitic stuff on a far-left Web site.

    We mistakenly attributed some of that to a man named David Hoenig, but he was actually reporting on it and had nothing to do with it. So our information was incorrect. We apologize to Mr. Hoenig and to you for making the error, which is always ridiculous.

    Also ridiculous, a beach brawl in San Diego. Cops say about 500 people started fighting on the sand and throwing bottles and cans all over the place. Sixteen were arrested. Lifeguards had to barricade themselves in their stands, and chaos was everywhere.

    No report on what started the fracas, but authorities believe alcohol may have been involved. Do you think?
