"George Bush says he speaks to god every day, and christians love him for it. If George Bush said he spoke to god through his hair dryer, they would think he was mad. I fail to see how the addition of a hair dryer makes it any more absurd."

You won't see any 'flood of oil' Greeney2, because Bush, as usual, screwed that one up too.
I remember Bush and his cabal saying that Iraqi oil production would rise to around 6 million barrels per day by 2010 and would easily fund the occupation and reconstruction of the country. Do you? That failed, but it is still all about control over the resource, not just using it for America directly.
If Bush had anything about the war right, I never saw or heard it. That prediction, along with many others, can now be seen for what it was......... just part of the hype by American neocons to sell the idea of invading Iraq to the American public.
It has also recently been discovered that Iraq has even more reserves of oil that was previously thought, bringing it into 2nd place in the world league of countries with oil to splosh about.
The US is not giving up on it though, and is staying in Iraq for 'the foreseeable future' for one thing and one thing only, control over their oil. Les than two years ago, in July 2008, the US Air Force released a detailed plan for Iraq operations "for the foreseeable future," and I don't see Obama changing anything much yet. Do you?
As far as your corrections, you are wrong!
Ok then. Tell you what.
I will quite happily go through them with you one at a time and show you the evidence I have that verifies each and every one is true. Would you prefer that?
