Then It’s a Tie, Right?

posted by on December 5 at 13:27 PM

This morning Robert Gates, George W. Bush’s nominee for Defense Secretary, told the U.S. Senate that he did not believe we are winning the war in Iraq.

This afternoon George W. Bush’s Press Secretary, Tony Snow, told the White House press that the George W. Bush respectfully disagrees with his… own… nominee… for Defense Secretary.

Q: …The President has said, we are winning. You from that podium said, we’re winning —

MR. SNOW: Right.

Q: — but we haven’t won.

MR. SNOW: Right.

Q: [Gates] said — he agreed that we are not winning. So how is that consistent —

MR. SNOW: And he also said we’re not losing….

Losing is the new winning.

"and the only time its a civil war is if there wearing blue or grey, right?' from the Colbert Report, lol. Maybe this short video post will clarify the situation for those in the dark about Civil War over there in Iraq. Oh sorry,am I aloud to call it that Mr. Snow?(snowjob is more like it)

reminds me of El Salvadors plight to try and get along with itself. Oh and that wasn't a Civil War?! bullshiteeda

Why do we always get snowjobbed by the leaders as to what the hell is going on over there. They think we are idiots or something. we have the internet you know Mr. Snow and nomatter what we call it Sectarian violence(what a crock, it seems we never allow anyone else to have a civil war, because if its a civil war we have to take a side. thats why we dont want to call it that. thats my summary on the whole fiasco.

Gates is probably in the basement of the White House being beaten right now.

I'm fairly certain that Tony Snow is a part of Slytherin. He has to know Lord Valdemort personally.

I have to give Gates credit for actually giving substantive answers. After hearing Scalito and Roberts spend fifteen minutes saying absolutely nothing after each question they received, it was an amazing change of pace.

I'm pretty sure that it means Bush will be withdrawing his nomination immediately.
