What a tangled web the Republicans believe

Talking Points Memo: by Joshua Micah Marshall: October 03, 2004 - October 09, 2004 Archives discusses how the Republicans are trying to spin away Bremer's admission that he repeated begged the Administration to send more troops to Iraq:

Yesterday afternoon the Bush campaign told the Post that Bremer had requested more troops, but that the president preferred to take the counsel of his military commanders.

So it's either Bremer never said anything and now he's just making excuses (the Journal line.)

Or, yes he said something, but we chose to ignore him (the Bush-Cheney 04 line.)

Is BC04 lying too? In a cynical ploy to shift blame onto the president?

So with the regime-change dead-enders' media strategy you have dishonest arguments, poor coordination, lack of a game plan. Remind you of anything?

Makes you wonder. Do you think someone in the White House is a compulsive liar -- or just a serial fabricator?
