A tribute to Condoleeza Rice and George W. Bush who, despite voluminious evidence to the contrary, said, "I don't think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center, take another one and slam it into the Pentagon, that they would try to use an airplane as a missile," adding that "even in retrospect" there was "nothing" to suggest that" and "I don't think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees," respectively.

LET ME FINISH!! A courtesy I don't intend is mutual.

Wow, what a performance. I don't have a "freedom" count, but it has to be in double digits. Anyway, I did notice that at least two questions were carefully worded in a way to denounce Reid, H. Clinton and Kennedy.

Oddly enough, these two "reporters" were called upon and were not interrupted during their questions like so many of the others were. So, who were they and who do they work for? I see the hand of Rove in the posing of their questions.

As usual, this was a difficult exercise to watch as GWB had some difficulty controlling his emotions and demanded that questions be in a "orderly" fashion. Also, true to form, many questions posed went unanswered.Posted by Hello

Here are the questions. You decide whether they are planted or reflect a biased, politcal viewpoint.


Q Thank you. Senate Democratic leaders have painted a very bleak picture of the U.S. economy. Harry Reid was talking about soup lines, and Hillary Clinton was talking about the economy being on the verge of collapse. Yet, in the same breath, they say that Social Security is rock-solid and there's no crisis there. How are you going to work -- you said you're going to reach out to these people -- how are you going to work with people who seem to have divorced themselves from reality?

Q Mr. President, Senator Ted Kennedy recently repeated his characterization of Iraq as a "quagmire" and has called it your Vietnam. And the questioning of Alberto Gonzales and Condi Rice in the Senate has been largely used by Democrats to criticize your entire Iraq program, especially what you're trying to do postwar. I wonder if you have any response to those criticisms. And what kind of an effect do you think these statements have on the morale of our troops and on the confidence of the Iraqi people that what you're trying to do over there is going to succeed?

NOTE: The White House transcript does not identify those posing these questions even though they have to know who they are. One has to wonder if this a personal agenda of the reporters or are they getting a stipend from some "Department." Also, I don't recall anyone saying SS was rock-solid, but they did question the "crisis" nature of the problem. Really, who were these reporters?

Update: Media Matters identifies one of the posers:
