At a White House press briefing today, Press Secretary Dana Perino effectively tells veteran correspondent Helen Thomas that the American people's say in the Iraq occupation ended after the 2004 election.
"The American people are being asked to die and pay for this," probes Thomas. "And you're saying they have no say in this war?"
"No," Perino responds, "I didn't say that, Helen. But, Helen, this president was elected--"
Thomas interrupts: "But it amounts to it. You're saying we have no input at all."
"You had input," Perino says. "The American people have input every four years and that's the way our system is set up."

The Iraq War was a mandate from the 2004 election. After 4 years of an administration, you know what you are voting for.
Helen Thomas is a liberal-nutcase, and twisting words of a Presidential spokesman is her job, whether it makes sense or not.
