See, he doesn't just lie. He massages the truth. Yesterday, from the ranch, with shirt sleeves rolled up, and incredibly stupid face plastered from ear to ear, Bush told a reporter the military is meeting it's recruitment goals for July.
Nice work, military recruitment guys. Saw you on the streets of Jersey City a few weeks ago, and man, those black and spanish kids just loved your guns.
Yeah, we may have met recruitment goals for the month because high school is out! Did we meet them for the year? Not even close. But here's the other kicker: we meet the goals because they LOWER THE GOALS without public notice:
Even after reducing its target for May, the Army missed its recruiting goal by about 25 percent, according to the New York Times. The shortfall would have been even bigger if the Army did not lower its goal for the month. With no public notice, the they lowered its May recruit numbers from 8,050 down to 6,700 recruits.
Would any adult let a child get away with this?
If you were in the living room with your kid, and you said, "Listen, Johnny, you better be in the house before that clock strikes midnight" and then you pointed at a specific clock. If Johnny set the clock back an hour would it be okay if he really came in at 1 AM?
See, this is what it's like for Bush supporters, and the media, they can't even tell time. It's "time" you pulled your heads out of your asses. For them, you can come in at 1 AM as long as the clock reads Midnight.
