You may recall during the confirmation hearing for Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice when Senator Joseph Biden said "Don't listen to Secretary Rumsfeld, he doesn't know what the hell he is talking about" in reference to the number of Iraqis in the newly formed Iraqi armed forces.
Well.... here's an update: Rep. Sanchez (D-CA) trying to get the better of our Defense Secretary:
Transcript: Rumsfeld Testifies Before House Panel (washingtonpost.com): "SANCHEZ: I have Petraeus' numbers. They're different than your numbers, by the way.
RUMSFELD: Well, what's the date? They aren't different because these came from Petraeus. He may have two sets of numbers, but they are not different if the date's the same.
The date on my paper here is February 14th. What's yours?
SANCHEZ: December 20th.
RUMSFELD: Not surprising there's a difference. "
Not that this obvious ploy to embarrass Secretary Rumsfeld or President Bush will make the slightest difference to the "Hate America" crowd. They've gone so far off the deep end of reality that it's no longer a red state/blue state thing. Some of these folks are on another planet altogether. Maybe President Bush's support of a prescription drug benefit isn't such a bad idea.
