Another Report from the Reality-Based World
(Speaking of lowered 'expectations'!)

Christian Coalition Founder, Pat Robertson on CNN's Paul Zahn Now speaking about the meeting he had with Bush prior to the War on Iraq:

"And I warned him about this war. I had deep misgivings about this war, deep misgivings. And I was trying to say, 'Mr. President, you had better prepare the American people for casualties.' "

Robertson said the president then told him, "Oh, no, we're not going to have any casualties."

For the record, so far we've had almost to 29,000 U.S. military casualties in Iraq. So Bush was only off by 29,000. And we've had 1,102 U.S. military fatalities as well. No idea which number Bush might have been referring to. Though you'd expect a "Commander-in-Chief" to know the difference. As we've said though, and as the above quote shows, expectations are not this Administrations forte.

But, hey, at least Robertson gets to meet with the President about these things! That's more than can be said for folks like Democratic Congressmen or the Black Caucus therein!
