Bush pays price for 'Mission Accomplished' sign - The White House-

"WASHINGTON - The White House said Wednesday that President Bush has paid a price for the “Mission Accomplished” banner that was flown in triumph five years ago but later became a symbol of U.S. misjudgments and mistakes in the long and costly war in Iraq.

Thursday is the fifth anniversary of Bush’s dramatic landing in a Navy jet on an aircraft carrier homebound from the war. The USS Abraham Lincoln had launched thousands of airstrikes on Iraq."

Ah yes, my favorite Bush photo. Nothing shows what a moron Bush is better then the picture of him giving a speech telling us “Major combat operations in Iraq have ended,” Bush said at the time. “The battle of Iraq is one victory in a war on terror that began on Sept. 11, 2001, and still goes on.” Where are we today? We are still fighting major combat operations in Iraq.

This Saturday is another Fort Wayne for Peace rally. I wish I would have thought ahead enough to have been able to make that picture into a sign to take down there.

I think I might go to some conservative blogs and wish them "Happy Mission Accomplished day".
