On Countdown last night, Keith replayed an extended portion of President Bush's interview with Jim Lehrer where he displayed, once again, his increasing disconnect from reality. Afterwards, Jonathan Alter chimed in and broke down Mr. Bush's delusional nonsense and "Orwellian doublespeak."
To echo Bob Cesca's post over at HuffPo, it really bothers me when President Bush answers questions about the personal sacrifices in Iraq with a smile and a chuckle. I understand that his folksy demeanor helped him get elected but there is nothing funny about the thousands of deaths and trillions of dollars we're losing in Iraq. Nothing funny at all.
