Jon Stewart Calls Out Bush's Rhetorical Bull$*#t

tds-bush-bullshit.jpg As we noted last week, President Bush's rhetoric about the Congressional Iraq War spending bill is squarely at odds with the policy of his own Pentagon. In a speech delivered before a backdrop of military families, he had the audacity to claim that it was the Democrats who were keeping their loved ones in Iraq longer (despite a provision in the bill that mandated a one year leave period). The only problem is that Secretary Gates announced the very next day that he would be extending tours from 12 to 15 months. Last night Jon Stewart ripped into Bush good for this blatant act of manipulation and deceit.
