Everyone remembers the day George Bush stood on the deck of the a aircraft carrier with the banner claiming Mission Accomplished behind him. The news media and the Bush haters never let it go. They mocked him over and over. The media didn’t let out the truth except once that I can remember.
Wikipedia The banner stating “Mission Accomplished” was a focal point of controversy and criticism. Navy Commander and Pentagon spokesman Conrad Chun said the banner referred specifically to the aircraft carrier’s 10-month deployment (which was the longest deployment of a carrier since the Vietnam War) and not the war itself, saying “It truly did signify a mission accomplished for the crew. CNN Cmdr. Conrad Chun, a Navy spokesman, defended the president’s assertion. “The banner was a Navy idea, the ship’s idea,” Chun said.
The media made Bush’s life a hell and Bush just took it. The reporters were disgusting during press conferences. More then a few times David Gregory and the other reporters were so full of themselves trying to put words in Bush’s mouth, it was embarrassing to watch. I never seen such disrespect for a sitting president before. I dare them to try that with Obama.
