    republican conservative former Congressman Joe Scarborough, on Bush's claims about what he knew, and when he knew it, with regard to the Iran NIE:



    Joe Scarborough Rips Bush On Iran NIE: He’s Either ‘Lying’ Or ‘Is Stupid’

    Yesterday in his press conference, President Bush asserted that Director of National Intelligence Mike McConnell told him “we have new information” on Iran’s nuclear program, but “he did not tell me what the information was.”

    This morning, the cast of Morning Joe chided Bush’s claim. Co-host Willie Geist said, “It’s just not a credible answer, I’m afraid.” Host Joe Scarborough ripped into Bush, saying that president is either “lying to the American people” or is simply “stupid”:

    "We are left with only two options here. Either the President of the United States is lying to the American people about what happened during that meeting, or the President of the United States is stupid."

    Sure, why beat around the Bush? Why not just call him a stupid liar like you really want?

    how so?

    because he isn't falling in line, starry eyed, behind the war drum despite evidence?

    I am pretty sure that was the clear implication.

    No, its just that he's so mad, has changed his mind several times and spews vitriol. There are people on the other side that do this too, conservatives, which I lend no credibility either. Hannity is the name.

    standard GOP misdirect: make the issue about Scarborough.

    Now, do you believe that Bush only "found out" about the intelligence communities assessment about Iran a few days ago?

    Or is he lying, because the findings in the NIE were basically formalized 6 months ago.


    As for scarborough, sane conservatives can change their mind, based on new information. He's seen enough of Bush to conclude that Dubya is a bumbling incompetent. Most of america has.

    I swear, sometimes it seems like most of the 24% dead enders - that small fraction that still worships Bush - is on this board.

    Tell me, why would a country dripping in oil need a nuclear program to begin with?
