Bush Press Conference At 11:15

Probably more of the same but with yesterday's Senate hoo-hah it could be interesting.

I'm going to watch and see if pigs fly.

UPDATE: He just conflated Powell's letter into Powell comparing Americans to terrorists. For gods sake.

UPDATE II: I used my DVR to get the exact quote. Make of it what you will.

Reporter: Mr. President, former Secretary of State Colin Powell says the world is beginning to doubt the moral basis of our fight against terrorism. If the former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and former Secretary of State feels this way, don't you think that Americans and the rest of the world are beginning to wonder whether your following a flawed strategy?

President Bush: If there's any comparison between the compassion and decency of the American people and the terrorists tactics of extremists it's flawed logic. I simply can't accept that. It's unacceptable to think that there's any kind of comparison between the behavior of the United States of America and the actions of Islamic extremists who kill innocent women and children to achieve an objective.

UPDATE III: Two questions about torture and the rift with Congress. TWO QUESTIONS! Both fairly soft. Liberal press my ass. Until we get to David Gregory who actually has the sack to ask a specific question about torture.

UPDATE IV: Okay Gregory and Bush are really getting into it. Gregory refuses to give the microphone up. The talk radio nuts are going to go crazy this afternoon.

"who kill innocent women and children to achieve an objective."

Because no innocent bystander Iraqi women or children have been killed during our bombing raids?

Oh right, I forgot the other part of the sentence. We have no real concrete objective in Iraq, now that the whole WMD thing has gone poof.

I love how questioning the morality of our tactics turns into equating the US army with terrorists. That was one hell of a leap, Mr. President.
