What Bush Really Said About Bin Laden

Last night Kerry accused Bush of having said that he "was not worried about Bin Laden." Bush said this was "another Kerry exaggeration." Of course MSNBS took the lead in providing the video showing Bush making this remark. Did you notice how they allowed for Kerry's quotes to be re-told in complete context, but yet they cut Bush's quote off in mid-sentence. Well, here's why. Since MSNBC believes that context is only for the Dems, let me give it to you:
"There are only so many caves he (bin Laden) can hide in," said Bush in arrival remarks at Yeager Airport in Charleston, W.Va. The United States, he said, is winning the war on terrorism, even if the suspected mastermind of the Sept. 11 terror attacks is still at large.

"He's the one who needs to be worried. But I want to assure you the objective is not bin Laden. We'll get bin Laden.

"We want him dead or alive ... but we are not too worried about him. ... He is the one who needs to be worried," Bush said.

This was said just a few months after 9/11. I would bet that the smoke was still rising into the air in Manhattan. Bush was being a war-time president and posturing. The President was relaying that he does not lie in bed at night worried about his fate, that that was for the enemy. For the guys holed up in caves in a country still in a medieval time zone. Bush was also saying that he does not have to worry about OBL because he had the most kick-ass military in the world on the case. Bush was saying...I am taking care of no I do not 'worry' about OBL.

So sad that the MSM only provides context for the Dems.
