Wednesday, April 28, 2004It makes sense to me!
If he is looking forward to them so much why has he been fighting them tooth and nail? Why
A wartime deserter sends surrogates to attack a decorated war hero.
Tuesday, April 27, 2004David Grenier Finds A Bush First
Bush has sough to reduce military pay, reduced their medical benefits and transformed the National Guard to the International Invasion Force. He now accuses Kerry of cutting military benefits.
Meanwhile, attack dog Cheney says that voters have "ample grounds" to doubt Kerry's judgment when it comes to national security. We sure wouldn't want to get away from Bush's "sound judgement" - take a month long vacation when he gets news of an imminent attack. Didn't Bush later make up news for an imminent attack to he could commit war crimes against Iraq and steal their oil?
Steady leader? More like a steady misleader.
Incidentally, folks wonder why I refer to George W. Bush as Gov. Bush. Well, it is polite to address someone with the highest office they were ever elected to.
Monday, April 26, 2004The Situtation Changes But the Chant Remains the Same
The liberals were wrong. There was no debacle in Iraq, and the citizens welcomed our troops with much jubilation. Eat it, Janeane Garofalo.
- Steven Musemechen, April 19, 2003
Iraq could become a beacon for the Middle East to see and show the rest of the thugs who rule the region that the days of status quo are gone.
- William Selber, April 24, 2003
liberals were wrong again in opposing the war in Iraq
- Kim B. Deffenbaugh, Sep 15, 2003
President Bush may be too humble to gloat, but I’m not.
- Thomas Lindaman, 12/22/03
We are now engaged in a great debate over whether Iraq is another Vietnam. This says far more about the liberal mind than it does about history.
- Mona Charen, March 2004
Saturday, April 24, 2004Hey, Ralph Nader!
"The Bush-Cheney regime is a criminal enterprise following a blueprint for world conquest and bent on liquidating what remains of the public sector and the domestic social contract in the United States. Its core electoral support is derived from the most racist and fascist-minded elements of society."
Still having trouble seeing the difference, Ralph? Why are you willing to give us four more wars, Ralph?

The "new and improved" Iraqi constitution allows them to sell oil producing land to foreigners while the old one didn't. Those auctions can't begin while the US is an occupying power so they have to wait until an "Iraqi" government is in place.
Due to the security situation, Iaqi oil lands will probably go for pennies on the million dollars but the only people allowed to bid are Cheney's friends.

Tuesday, April 20, 20049/11 Commemoration and Republican Convention Protest
Now is when people with a conscience must apply to be a member of their local draft board. If you don't then some rich, old, crotchety, white, Republican man will be deciding who gets deferments.
Everyone knows at least one or two Americans who hate what Bush has done to this great country but might not get around to voting. Responsible, patriotic Americans will make sure everyone they know who is against Bush will vote. DrivingVotes is concentrating on swing states and will register everyone. Which isn't a bad idea. You wouldn't believe the number of Republicans who have confided in me that they will vote against Bush this November.
Monday, April 19, 2004Too Bad Democrats Drank the Kool-Aid That Rove Was Selling at the Time
"The good news for us is that Dean is not the nominee," Rove now argued to an associate in his second-floor West Wing office. Dean's unconditional opposition to the Iraq war could have been potent in a face-off with Bush. "One of Dean's strengths, though, was he could say, I'm not part of that crowd down there."
Sunday, April 18, 2004Impeach the Traitors Now!
Prince Bandar is the man who demanded that George Bush let Osama bin Laden's family flee America when real Americans weren't allowed to fly and George "Tough on Terra" Bush complied.
This is the man whose family has given Bush and his Daddy 1.5 billion dollars over 30 years. Where exactly does George Bush's loyalties lie?
Is this how you support the troops, Mr. Bush? I have called for you to be sent to the Hague for war crimes but I would like you to spend some time alone with some soldiers that just got back from Iraq first so they could explain to you their opinion on this matter.
Among his many gems:
"Amnesty International reports that US-led forces have 'shot Iraqis dead during demonstrations, tortured and ill-treated prisoners, arrested people arbitrarily and held them indefinitely, demolished houses in acts of revenge and collective punishment'. "
Bush is engaging in collective punishment just like Hitler did. I know Americans get queasy when they hear that but I wish Bush would quit giving us so many correlations!
I think "Jobs and Growth" is also going to come back and bite him.
He also feels Bush will win Ohio comfortably. Diebold have anything to do with that?
I wonder if he would deny planning war shortly after staging his coup and sitting in Al Gore's office?

Rewiring the War Room
My comment was innocent enough, I mentioned that we don't know George Bush's convictions because Daddy Bush and James Baker had the court records expunged and sealed. I also happened to mention, in a friendly sort of way, that while he believes Bush is a man of his word that The Daily Show had to subtitle Bush's speech so Americans could understand his dissembling.
He deleted the comment. Typical of a freedom loving Bush supporter. I guess I ventured out of the free speech zone. My other comment which is soon to be deleted is
lol - you deleted my comments from the other thread. Typical of a "Bush freedom lover"
Speaking of waffles, your boy Bush is eligible to apply for a job at the Waffle House. Among his many flip flops
The funny thing is, my original comment was congratulating him on his Google Bomb. So much for the wingnuts changing the tone...
In all fairness to USA Today, they tried to reach me by email for their article but I have been too busy with real life to read blogmail for the past few weeks and couldn't respond in time for their article.
George "Flip Flop" Bush, whose first campaign commercial exploited the 9/11 attacks had one of his flunkies accuse Kerry of "consistent political opportunism on the war on terror."
Priceless stuff including:
"Halliburton is not a "company" doing business in Iraq. It is a WAR PROFITEER, bilking millions from the pockets of average Americans. In past wars they would have been arrested -- or worse."

It doesn't matter what structural changes they make if people like Rice and Bush don't use the intelligence in their pursuit of their "Reichstag fire."

Sunday, April 11, 2004Bush Flip Flops Again
However, Corporate Risk of a Tax Audit Is Still Shrinking, I.R.S. Data Show
Good plan, relying on quislings.
Blair "committed himself anew on Sunday to the war in Iraq, calling it part of a 'historic struggle' against dictatorship, terrorism and fanaticism across the globe." Apparently by telling Iraqis who their leader will be and killing civilians despite what British public opinion says.
It happened to list his activities as even the warfloggers doubt Iraq.
He gave the NRA a tour of his "ranch"
He gave an interview to the Ladies Home Journal
He gave Ducks Unlimited a tour of his ranch. (What? No Scalia or Cheney?)
He gave the National Wild Turkey Federation a tour of his ranch. (I wonder if he thought it was this wild turkey?)
To show concern for the Easter festivities in Iraq, he cancelled his fishing trip on Saturday.
Why don't Republicans want to yield to Bush's fondest desire and give him a permanent vacation in Crawford?
PS - Why don't the rich people who support Bush understand that wanting to vacation in Crawford as a sign of dementia? Most rich people want to vacation in Vail, Jackson Hole or Switzerland. For Easter vacations shouldn't it be New Orleans or Carnivale in Rio?
Looking back, pretty tough talk for someone who took the month off after ignoring warnings from Richard Clarke and others.
Hmm... it looks like if we want to do something about terrorism it will have to be anybody but Bush at the wheel.
Saturday, April 10, 2004Time to End the Hypocrisy
Thursday, April 08, 2004Lol
"I thank the Commission for arranging this special session. Thank you for helping to find a way to meet the Nation's need to learn all we can about the September 11th attacks, while preserving important Constitutional principles."
(Translation - thanks to you idiots agreeing that no one else from the White House will testify in exchange for me stonewalling you the nation won't learn that our anti-terrorism efforts were impeded by our anti-Clinton bias.)
"This Commission, and those who appear before it, have a vital charge. We owe it to those we lost, and to their loved ones, and to our country, to learn all we can about that tragic day, and the events that led to it. Many families of the victims are here today, and I thank them for their contributions to the Commission's work."
(Translaton - if those damn Jersey bitches had left well enough alone we could have pulled the wool over everyone's eyes that we did everything possible to stop Saddam H... Osama bin Laden.)
"The terrorist threat to our Nation did not emerge on September 11th, 2001. Long before that day, radical, freedom-hating terrorists declared war on America and on the civilized world. The attack on the Marine barracks in Lebanon in 1983, the hijacking of the Achille Lauro in 1985, the rise of al-Qaida and the bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993, the attacks on American installations in Saudi Arabia in 1995 and 1996, the East Africa embassy bombings of 1998, the attack on the USS Cole in 2000, these and other atrocities were part of a sustained, systematic campaign to spread devastation and chaos and to murder innocent Americans."
(Translation - I will try to appear bi-partisan by mentioning an attack under Reagan but after that it is Clinton, Clinton, Clinton, Clinton, Clinton, Clinton. I hope they don't ask me where Osama bin Laden got his funding and training for asymmetrical warfare against Communist Russia. I am an expert on Communist Russia, you know.)
"The terrorists were at war with us, but we were not yet at war with them. For more than 20 years, the terrorist threat gathered, and America's response across several administrations of both parties was insufficient. Historically, democratic societies have been slow to react to gathering threats, tending instead to wait to confront threats until they are too dangerous to ignore or until it is too late. Despite the sinking of the Lusitania in 1915 and continued German harassment of American shipping, the United States did not enter the First World War until two years later. Despite Nazi Germany's repeated violations of the Versailles Treaty and its string of provocations throughout the mid-1930s, the Western democracies did not take action until 1939. The U.S. Government did not act against the growing threat from Imperial Japan until the threat became all too evident at Pearl Harbor. And, tragically, for all the language of war spoken before September 11th, this country simply was not on a war footing."
(Translation - The terrorists are just like Nazis, invading countries and blowing up churches. I will leave out the part about W's grandfather's role as "Hitler's Angel." I will leave out W's dad's part in arming radical Iranians. I will leave out Rumsfeld's supplying Hussein with weapons including the gas he used on his own people. I will leave out that Cheney's company Halliburton broke UN sanctions to deal with Libya and Iraq because, well you know, money was at stake.)
Since then, America has been at war. And under President Bush's leadership, we will remain at war until the terrorist threat to our Nation is ended. The world has changed so much that it is hard to remember what our lives were like before that day. But I do want to describe the actions this Administration was taking to fight terrorism before September 11th, 2001.
(Translation - Should I mention we also plan to leave Bush in power until the never ending war against terrorism has ended? Maybe, I won't bring that up until 2008. Besides, I don't want to describe the actions we were taking because how to say "Asleep at the switch." while looking tough on terrorism? Oops, better hurry up, after that last statement the Jersey bitches have steam coming out of their ears.)
After President Bush was elected, we were briefed by the Clinton Administration on many national security issues during the transition. The President-elect and I were briefed by George Tenet on terrorism and on the al-Qaida network. Members of Sandy Berger's NSC staff briefed me, along with other members of the new national security team, on counterterrorism and al-Qaida. This briefing lasted about one hour, and it reviewed the Clinton Administration's counterterrorism approach and the various counterterrorism activities then underway. Sandy and I personally discussed a variety of other topics, including North Korea, Iraq, the Middle East, and the Balkans.
(Translation - Elected or selected, what's the difference? Please pay no attention to accounts they wanted to talk about bin Laden but I kept wanting to talk about Hussein.)
"Because of these briefings and because we had watched the rise of al-Qaida over the years, we understood that the network posed a serious threat to the United States. We wanted to ensure there was no respite in the fight against al-Qaida. On an operational level, we decided immediately to continue pursuing the Clinton Administration's covert action authorities and other efforts to fight the network. President Bush retained George Tenet as Director of Central Intelligence, and Louis Freeh remained the Director of the FBI. I took the unusual step of retaining Dick Clarke and the entire Clinton Administration's counterterrorism team on the NSC staff. I knew Dick to be an expert in his field, as well as an experienced crisis manager. Our goal was to ensure continuity of operations while we developed new and more aggressive policies."
(Conscience talking - If I had taken any of those meetings that Clarke had demanded then maybe...
Condi - Shut up, Conscience!)
This is getting too aggravating to continue reading through her lies. I will end by noting her opening

"We are here to show the world our might," a cleric said. "This army can be a striking force at any moment, it's a time bomb that will go off at a time and place it chooses."
I guess this is more of the good news pouring out of Iraq that shows Bush's grab for oil is winning...
But I guess we shouldn't worry about details like this because the jobs report was so good.
