Bush said what?

There's a big yah-yah going on about Bush's Presidential veto of the Iraq war budget. Bush and his accolytes have called the Democratic bill, "The Surrender Bill" because it tells the "enemy when we plan to leave.

Bush is engaging in nothing more than partisan politics, doing everything he possibly can to deflect criticism of his own abject failure as a president. Everything, thst is, except suddenly becoming competent at his job.

Here is a quote from Nancy Pelosi that points out how much of a hypocrite George W. Bush is:

The president said, in his comments, he did not believe in timelines, and he spoke out very forcefully against them. Yet in 1999, on June 5th, then-Governor Bush said, about President Clinton, “I think it’s important for the president to lay out a timetable as to how long they will be involved and when they would be withdrawn.” Despite his past statements, President Bush refuses to apply the same standard to his own activities.

Somehow I keep coming around to thinking that if President Bush were actively trying to destroy America, he couldn't be doing any better job than he is now.

Speaker Pelosi is also doing an admirable job, but a job of turning the tide against this country's Conservative enemies. Let us hope that the only people who follow President Bush over the cliff he's headed for are his goose stepping, extreme right wing accolytes who are the remaining base of the Republican party.


Peace please,

Steve




Here's a fine take on the Presidential veto from the Knoxviews.com proprietor.

  1. I wholeheartedly endorse every letter of this post.

    Well said!

    BushCo is running wide open right now. Bush, Gonzales, Wolfowitz, etc. They're not even trying to hide their lies and hypocrisy anymore. They're just running hot and hoping most people aren't paying attention.

    Twenty years ago that worked, but not today. :)
