Eat At Joes

Just a regular Joe who is angry that the USA, the country he loves, is being corrupted and damaged from within and trying to tell his fellow Americans the other half of the story that they don’t get on the TV News.

Bush Made Same “Mistake” Eleven Times in the Last Three Months Alone

As reported here Republicans (and their minions in the Media) have been using a McCarthy Era Propagandistic term labeling the Democratic Party as the “Democrat Party.” President Bush did it again in his state of the union address the other night. He did it in his CBS interview on 60 Minutes the week before. Yesterday he was interviewed on NPR and the interviewer asked him about it. President Bush said that his calling the Democratic Party the Democrat Party in his State of the Union Address was just an oversight. The problem is he’s made the same mistake at least eleven times in the last three months alone.

In the State of the Union Address he mentioned the “Democrat Majority.” He now says that was just an oversight. Although, the speech was written for him to say “Democratic Majority” and the official version on the White House web site was changed to say “Democrat Majority” later. Okay, it was one oversight. A one time mistake. Right? But wait…

President Bush, November 8, 2006:
Yesterday, the people went to the polls and they cast their vote for a new direction in the House of Representatives. And while the ballots are still being counted in the Senate, it is clear the Democrat Party had a good night last night, and I congratulate them on their victories. This morning I spoke with Republican and Democrat leadership in the House and Senate.

President Bush, November 5, 2006:
On these issues, the Democrat party has adopted a clear strategy of opposition and obstruction. Recently the House Democrat leader explained the advice she's been following since I was reelected in 2004. She said, you must take him down. That him would be me.

President Bush, October 30, 2006:
As a matter of fact, the top Democrat leader in the House made an interesting declaration. She said, we love tax cuts. But given her record, she must be a secret admirer. (Laughter and applause.)...Time and time again, when she and the Democrat Party had an opportunity to show their love for tax cuts, they voted no. If that's the Democrats' idea of love, I sure wouldn't want to see what hate looks like. (Laughter and applause.)

President Bush, October 20, 2006:
There is a difference of opinion between what we ought to be doing with your money, see. There are people in the Democrat Party who think they can spend your money far better than you can.

President Bush, October 19, 2006:
It's interesting, if you look at the history of tax cuts, the Democrat Party always -- didn't always feel the way they feel today. Back in the '60s, the Democrats understood that our economy grows when Americans keep more of what they earn, when Americans make their own decisions about how to save, spend, or invest.

President Bush, November 7, 2005:
And one area that we need to make progress on is with the Democrat Party. The Democrat Party is a free -- for many sessions was a free trade party.

That’s eleven times just over the last three months. And those are just speeches. They don't include interviews where he used it. Either he’s just that stupid (which I don’t believe for a minute) or he’s lying to the American people.

We report. You decide.

Hat tip to the Horse’s Mouth for this.

Update: There’s a good discussion on the pros and cons of objecting to the misnaming of the Democratic Party. My favorite is calling the Republican Party the Repub Party (stress on the first syllable of the word Repub is important--as in REpub). If they want to shorten our party name we’ll shorten theirs. Which sounds worse to your ears the Democrat Party or the REpub Party? ‘Nuf said.
