Captain Ed notes the new Move On TV spot that is trying to distract from the “Betray us” ad by transferring the betrayal status to President Bush.
In comments at his site I transcribed the ad and noted something…
“In 2006, George Bush had 130,000 troops stuck in Iraq. Americans had elected a new congress to bring them home. (130,000-130,000 = 0) Instead George Bush sent in 30,000 more troops. (130,000 + 30,000 = 160,000) Now he’s making a big deal about pulling out, you guessed it, 30,000 (160,000 – 30,000 = 130,000) so next year there will still be 130,000 troops stuck in Iraq. George Bush: A betrayal of trust.”
The emphasized section above is the funniest.
Just whose fault is it that troops are still in Iraq?
