When the O'W*GS factor continually spins facts presented re: Bush's illegal war (and the American public's view of that war) as "strident condemnation," etc., all he does is establish his place among the Kool-Aid drinking fringe minority who constitute Bush's hardcore base.
Rather than hold those who planned the war and those who sent our troops into harm's way accountable for these senseless, unnecessary deaths in Iraq, W*GS' twisted logic somehow compels him to blame those critics who urged BushCo not to invade Iraq in the first place. W*GS' thinking is truly warped.
