RADDATZ: But the overall thing -- when you say, "We're winning," you know what the American people hear. You know how that will play.
BUSH: Well, yes. I think we -- and I wanted -- that's as much trying to bolster the spirits of the people in the field as well as -- look, you can't have the commander in chief say to a bunch of kids who are sacrificing either, "It's not worth it," or, "You're losing." I mean, what does that do for morale?
So Bush essentially lied to our soldiers in order to keep them believing that they were "winning" a war that they were losing because of years of lies and mismanagement coming directly from Bush and Cheney.
Now people died as a result of these lies and the Bush-Cheney malfeasance.
That, my friends, is some hypocrisy. It's also criminal neglect.
He didn't just lie to our soldiers. He lied to everyone.
And he knew that he was lying all along. We knew that, of course.
Why are Bush in Cheney still in office and not in prison?
