It easy to make a claim. Harder to back it up with facts.
By Brad Friedman on 10/6/2004 12:39pm PT  

It occurs to me that on the day after Election Day, the Bush/Cheney sycophants may well acknowledge a Kerry/Edwards landslide but then try to tell us "Bush/Cheney, however, actually won the election on substance."

Now I realize each partisan side is more likely to believe their candidate won whichever debate on the substance since they likely agree with what their candidate said. But in the two debates so far where Republicans have been unable to claim a clear victory with a straight face (obviously, even less so in the first Presidential Debate), they keep falling back on this "but he won on substance" canard.

Given that Bush, in the first debate, seemed almost devoid of actual "substance", even proving to have a difficult time explaining many of his Administration's own policies, and Cheney's demonstrable twisting of facts and logic in his debate, how can Republicans even suggest that either Bush or Cheney won either of those debates on "substance"?

In order to do so, they are required to twist, turn, remove context, and otherwise prevaricate on just about every point which was made in both debates. So on which points, in either of the first two debates, did Bush/Cheney manage to make a "substantive" point that Kerry/Edwards was unable to effectively rebut? I am unable to think of any off-hand, but I look forward to being proven wrong. Please try and do so using "substance" in your comments if you have any...not style, twisted logic or out-of-context and/or inaccurate quotes. Please stick to what was actually said. Here's the transcripts from Debate #1 and the V.P. Debate for reference.

On the continued Bush/Cheney tactic of taking virtually everything Kerry/Edwards have to say completely out of context. (For background, see FactCheck.org's take on just one recent Bush/Cheney commercial.)

STEWART: What is going on? The Media is playing this out like this "global test" phrase is up for grabs with what Kerry really meant by it, when it seems very clear to anybody listening to the context.

CORDDRY: Yes, John, and therein lies the fundamental problem with the Kerry campaign. The enormous gap between what John Kerry means and what the Republicans say he means.

(laughter, applause)

STEWART: I don't...I don't...I don't think I follow what you're saying.

CORDDRY: Look, John, the Bush camp's been very clear that John Kerry would give France the veto over U.S. security and John Kerry has had a real hard time being straight forward about admitting what the Republicans say he believes.

STEWART: Why, why should he admit that? It is, it is the opposite of what he said in the debate?!

CORDDRY: Right, John, and that's the problem. This constant flip-flopping. John, say what you will about George W. Bush, but you always know exactly what he says John Kerry stands for.

Classic Bush/Cheney-esque sleight of hand in this exchange from tonight's debate...Note Edwards talks about coalition casualties in his statement. By the time it's done, Cheney has pulled the old switcheroo. The same way everything else from these guys has worked...Read, and see if you can spot the rabbit as he sneaks it into the hat...

EDWARDS: ...90 percent of the coalition casualties, Mr. Vice President, the coalition casualties, are American casualties. Ninety percent of the cost of this effort are being borne by American taxpayers. It is the direct result of the failures of this administration.

IFILL: Mr. Vice President?

CHENEY: Classic example. He won't count the sacrifice and the contribution of Iraqi allies. It's their country. They're in the fight. They're increasingly the ones out there putting their necks on the line to take back their country from the terrorists and the old regime elements that are still left. They're doing a superb job. And for you to demean their sacrifices strikes me as...

EDWARDS: Oh, I'm not...

CHENEY: ... as beyond the pale...

EDWARDS: I'm not demeaning...

CHENEY: It is indeed. You suggested...

EDWARDS: No, sir, I did not...

CHENEY: ... somehow they shouldn't count, because you want to be able to say that the Americans are taking 90 percent of the sacrifice. You cannot succeed in this effort if you're not willing to recognize the enormous contribution the Iraqis are increasingly making to their own future.

That slippery Dick.

CHENEY: Now, in my capacity as vice president, I am the president of Senate, the presiding officer. I'm up in the Senate most Tuesdays when they're in session. The first time I ever met you was when you walked on the stage tonight.

...of 'a connection between Iraq and 9/11'
By Brad Friedman on 10/5/2004 9:11pm PT  

Tonight at the V.P. debate...

CHENEY: The senator has got his facts wrong. I have not suggested there's a connection between Iraq and 9/11.

And previously...back in Reality Land...

"If we're successful in Iraq...we will have struck a major blow right at the heart of the base, if you will, the geographic base of the terrorists who have had us under assault now for many years, but most especially on 9/11." - Dick Cheney

Source: Meet the Press, NBC (9/14/2003).

And this...

"We did have reporting that was public, that came out shortly after the 9/11 attack, provided by the Czech government, suggesting there had been a meeting in Prague between Mohammed Atta, the lead hijacker, and a man named al-Ani (Ahmed Khalil Ibrahim Samir al-Ani), who was an Iraqi intelligence official in Prague, at the embassy there, in April of '01, prior to the 9/11 attacks. It has never been --- we've never been able to collect any more information on that. That was the one that possibly tied the two together to 9/11." - Dick Cheney

Source: Transcript of Interview with Vice President Dick Cheney, Rocky Mountain News (1/9/2004).

DEVELOPING...MORE...

MR. RUSSERT: The Washington Post asked the American people about Saddam Hussein, and this is what they said: 69 percent said he was involved in the September 11 attacks. Are you surprised by that?

VICE PRES. CHENEY: No. I think it's not surprising that people make that connection.

Paul Bremer Off Ice.
By Brad Friedman on 10/5/2004 3:22pm PT  

When I heard the story of Bremer's speech to DePauw University late last night, I realized that we hadn't thought about him, seen him, or heard from him since the day he hightailed it outta Baghdad when "sovereignty" was handed back to the Iraqis.

He's been nowhere to be found. Oddly enough, he wasn't even pulled out of mothballs to appear at the Republican Convention Fear-Fest. He was a likeable character and projected some sense of confidence to the American people. So it was strange that they didn't exploit him the way they exploited Rudy, McCain, Arnold and the others.

Perhaps now we know why. Here's part of the statement he made:

"The single most important change --- the one thing that would have improved the situation --- would have been having more troops in Iraq at the beginning and throughout... Although I raised this issue a number of times with our government, I should have been even more insistent."

Ah...not a "friendly". Might go all "Dick Clarke" on 'em I suppose the Bushies feared.

And now, as Atrios reports, the Bushies are going all "Dick Clarke" on him! Apparently calling Bremer a liar, claiming that he never asked for more troops.

Atrios set the record straight, with this July 2003 report from Mercury News:

WASHINGTON - The top American administrator in Iraq, confronting growing anti-U.S. anger and guerrilla-style attacks, is asking for more American troops and dozens of U.S. officials to help speed up the restoration of order and public services.

Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld was reviewing the request from L. Paul Bremer, U.S. officials said, speaking on the condition of anonymity.

Bremer's request underscores how difficult it has been for his small civilian staff and some 158,000 U.S.-led troops to meet the demands of Iraqis for security and other basic needs. It also conflicts with upbeat public statements from President Bush, Rumsfeld and Bremer himself on the progress made on Iraq's political and economic reconstruction.

Enough. Enough lying. Enough dissembling. Enough character assassination. Enough saving their own ass, and not giving a damn about America's ass. We can and must do so much better. It's time for them to go.

UPDATE: John Aravosis points out, in regards to this story, that the folks at the Dept. of Defense who are lying now about Paul Bremer, would be from the same Pentagon also currently telling us that no draft will be necessary. Fool me once?

He's NOT watching out for you!
By Brad Friedman on 10/4/2004 10:43pm PT  

"The orders have come down - Be as fair as you possibly can." --- Bill O'Reilly, on tonight's O'Reilly Factor

Apparently the orders did not "come down" far enough. O'Reilly tonight opened his All-Spin All-The-Time Zone this evening on how close the race now is. (I differ with that opinion, but that's fine and not the point of this item.)

He assured his viewers in his "Talking Points" segment that, with the race this tight, it's only going to get still nastier, and thus, he will be there to help viewers to sort out what's really going on in the race. He will help sort out the "spin" of the two candidates by examining their ads to expose who's telling the truth and who isn't.

To help us get started, he then showed two of the latest Video Ads from the campaign. He showed this one for Bush, and immediately followed it with this reponse ad from Kerry.

Here's the voice-over of the Bush ad (read carefully...emphasis added for text that also appears on screen during the spot):

BUSH AD: "He said he'd attack terrorists who threaten America. But at the debate, John Kerry said America must pass A Global Test before we protect ourselves. The Kerry Doctrine: A Global Test. So we must seek Permission from foreign governments before defending America? A global test? So America will be Forced to wait while threats gather? President Bush believes decisions about protecting America will be made in the Oval Office, not foreign capitals."

Here's the voice-over from the Kerry ad (emphasis added again for text that also appears on screen as it's read):

KERRY AD: George Bush lost the debate. Now he's lying about it. This is what you heard John Kerry really say: 'The president always has the right for pre-emptive strike.' 'I will hunt and kill the terrorists, wherever they are.' But here's something new about George Bush newspapers report he withheld key intelligence information from the American public so he could overstate the threat Iraq posed. Bush rushed us into war. Now we're paying the price. It's time for a fresh start."

Now the Bush ad is demonstrably misleading and/or downright false. The ad referred to this statement that Kerry made during the debate:

"No president, through all of American history, has ever ceded, and nor would I, the right to preempt in any way necessary to protect the United States of America.

But if and when you do it, Jim, you have to do it in a way that passes the test, that passes the global test where your countrymen, your people understand fully why you're doing what you're doing and you can prove to the world that you did it for legitimate reasons."

And there is not a single incorrect fact, statement or even word in the Kerry ad.

So how did O'Reilly help us "sort out the spin"? He had an entire segment, with an expert who --- surprise! --- agreed with O'Reilly's analysis that Kerry's ad crossed the line because he used the word "lying" in it!

Yes, that's right. Not a single word about the demonstrably misleading and/or false substance in the Bush ad. Not one.

Does it really matter that Fox is so unfair and so unbalanced? Is that news to anyone? Perhaps not. But the fact that they are the number one most watched news channel --- clearly for their pure entertainment value --- and so flagrantly do everything possible to support Bush and while telling tells folks they are "fair and balanced" is simply outrageous.

I'm still waiting for any real conservative (other than our friend and frequent BRAD BLOG commenter Teddy here) to speak up and denounce the appalling and flagrant bias of Fox News. I'm waiting for those same conservative wingnuts who are still bashing Rather and CBS, who actually made a lazy mistake versus out and out partisanship over the airwaves, to speak out against Fox.

Sidenote: Fox News Watch, the weekend show on Fox that claims to "cover the coverage" spent 3 of their 4 segments on various CBS related "controversies". They spent exactly zero segments covering any of this week's many Fox News, um, "digressions". And so it goes.

(If you're new here, read this and this and this and this for an idea of just a few of the outright lies and anti-Kerry bias that Fox News has sold America in just the past few days alone!)

Gordon 'Gordo' Cooper
By Brad Friedman on 10/4/2004 8:34pm PT  


Leroy Gordon Cooper, one of the nation's first astronauts who once set a space endurance record by traveling more than 3.3 million miles aboard Gemini 5 in 1965, died on Monday, NASA said. He was 77.
...
In his post-NASA career, Cooper became known as an outspoken believer in UFOs and charged that the government was covering up its knowledge of extraterrestrial activity.

"I believe that these extraterrestrial vehicles and their crews are visiting this planet from other planets, which obviously are a little more technically advanced than we are here on Earth," he told a United Nations panel in 1985.
...
He added, "For many years I have lived with a secret, in a secrecy imposed on all specialists and astronauts. I can now reveal that every day, in the USA, our radar instruments capture objects of form and composition unknown to us."

The Emperor Without His Clothes
By Brad Friedman on 10/4/2004 5:23pm PT  

While Rush brewed up a fresh pitcher this morning for his Kool-aid drinkers, predictably turning on the "Liberal" Media because their polls now show a come-back for Kerry in the face of Bush's disastrous performance last week. To swallow that notion, one would need to ignore all the media's previous polls that showed Bush winning, ignore the poll of WaPo --- one of the favorite "Liberal" media whipping boys --- which still shows Bush leading, ignore the past three and a half years of demonstrably pro-Bush work by the entire Mainstream Media, and a whole bunch of Kool-aid to wash it all down. But Rush has nothing else to rally his supporters with for the moment, so every line old becomes new again.

In the wake of it all, those of us who know the real reason why Bush is heading back to Crawford have had some time to ponder it all.

Here's four enlightening items I think you'll enjoy. All of them very powerful. I suggest you look at each of them. Including the last link with one the best pieces I've seen explaining where we are right now and why the truth about George W. Bush is finally making it through the cracks in the armor.

My buddy, Fin of "What-We-Know", has put together a terrific little video that hits the nail right on the head. He gets it. Most of you already do as well. But this puts a lot in perspective. Check out his "Lone Wolf" video. Especially you Rightwingers.

My other buddy, Jesse, over at the DCCC, has put together a terrific video compendium called "Miserable Failure" detailing Bush's gaffes, lies, misleads, or whatever you want to call them from the first debate. Corrections to Bush's, uh, "misstatements" are provided, along with some great Springsteen music to boot. Check it out. Especially you Rightwingers.

A group calling themselves "Real Voices" puts out an extraordinarily emotional indictment of George W. Bush's war. It's called "A Mother's Tears" and features testimony from the mother of an American soldier killed in Iraq - for no apparent reason. It packs a wallop. Please check it out. Especially you Rightwingers.

Finally, Digby puts into perspective precisely why George W. Bush now finds himself exposed and in trouble in a piece called "Two Faces. One Public, One Private. One Phony, One Real." It beautifully sums up the last four years of the Bush scam to a tee and why America may finally be starting to "get it". I can't recommend enough that you give this piece a quick read. (Thanks Bryan for the tip!) You may as well learn the truth now rather than waiting until after the election and wondering what happened. Particularly you Rightwingers!
