Democratic National Committee Launches Web Ad On "Stay The Course" Rhetoric

The Democratic National Committee has launched a new Internet-only advertising campaign on the Bush Administration's sudden departure from the phrase "stay the course."

After a lengthy series of dated clips from 2003 to 2006 from President Bush, Vice President Cheney and others using the phrase "stay the course," the advertisement then shows Bush last month saying that "we've never been 'stay the course.'" The tag line reads: "Mr. President, America deserves more than a change in rhetoric, America deserves a change in policy. Democrats: A new direction for America."

It's a potentially effective message, refuting empty Bush Administration spin. But an Internet-only campaign will never have the impact of a broad television campaign. Why not run the ad in key districts nationwide?

And while the DNC is at it, here are some other video clips that Americans should be reminded of:

-- At a 2002 press conference, just six months after 9/11, Bush said that he was "not that concerned" with Bin Laden, who he said had been "marginalized."

-- Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, in early 2003, said of the pending Iraq War: "It is unknowable how long that conflict will last. It could last six days, six weeks. I doubt six months."

-- At the 2004 Radio and Television Correspondents Association dinner, President Bush joked while "candid" photos -- projected onto a screen -- showed him unable to find Iraqi weapons of mass destruction. One featured him under his desk, with this narration: "'Nope, no weapons over there."

-- Vice President Cheney, in May 2005, said: "I think they're in the last throes, if you will, of the insurgency."

-- Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice, speaking in March: "I know we've made tactical errors, thousands of them I'm sure."

That's a montage people need to see.

You donks complain when this administration doesnt admit it made mistakes and then when they do admit it, you belittle it. Keep up the hypocrisy. It suits you all well.

What does Bush changing the rhetoric about the Iraq occupation have to do with "admitting he made a mistake"?
When has Bush, Cheney and Rice admitted they had made a mistake, when all they have ever done is rephrased their earlier statements?
Anonymous, you're just talking nonsense.
And what does Webb's past fiction writings have to do with the topic?

Hey Angelina, I know you think you're being funny, or smart or whatever. But you sound like a major A-Hole

Patton, I'm not being funny.

I think several ANONYMOUS posters have NOTHING TO SAY. All they can do is LASH OUT AT LIBERALS, like good little MARK LEVIN WORSHIPPERS.

The Levinites have NO ORIGINAL THOUGHTS and NOTHING CONSTRUCTIVE TO SAY. It's just ANGER, FEARMONGERING, MISRPERESENTATION OF FACT and JUVENILE NAME-CALLING. Oh yeah, and there's plenty of UNSUBSTANTIATED RUMORS.

I don't know why they bother.

Sorry to have CONFUSED you, Patton, although your posts suggest YOU ARE OFTEN CONFUSED.

Am I wrong? PROVE IT. C'mon, anonymous posters. SHOW THAT YOU CAN FORM COHESIVE, RATIONAL THOUGHTS. Defend your conservative ideals, but try to refrain from WILD SPECULATION, UNSUBSNTATIATED CLAIMS, RAMPANT HYPERBOLE and JUVENILE NAME CALLING.

I DARE ANY OF THE LEVINITES TO PROVE THEIR WORTH TO THIS OR ANY OTHER JABBS DISCUSSION.

Damm, You tell'em Angelina!!

If it weren't for fear they would have no fearmongering at all!!

If it wasn't for idiots, there would be very little fear.

We have nothing to fear but...the war mongering, Levinite, Republican freedom-hating trolls who succomb to the Karl Rovian propaganda.
They are the real danger to America.
