The Monday ‘BushWhack’ing

Let’s get it on...

  • This explains it all. With a disastrous war, plunging approval numbers, the inability to pass any legislation and the continuing weakening of his status within his own party, “President” Bush is still “at ease.” (I know I can not be the only one who finds this troubling… right? He’s ‘at ease’ even though he got this country into an unnecessary war that’s claimed over 3500 American lives alone and can’t get any of his policies passed? What the hell is wrong with this man????)
  • Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) has jumped ahead in the money-raising race this quarter, raising $31 million.
  • Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) isn’t going to let Bush or the White House hide behind ‘executive privilege’ or anything else, and now he’s saying that he will try to cite the White House for contempt if they don’t turn over documents related to AttorneyGate. (That’s all fine and good, but anyone reading this blog knows as well as Leahy does that that won’t do a damn thing. Karl Rove, Dick Cheney, the president and this administration have already shown their derision for the law, so why would they let this bother/affect them?)
  • News that’s sure to make everyone’s skin crawl: the Bush(whacked) Administration is most likely going to move-up its program for a “new-generation nuclear warhead” into the development stage within a year, with the goal of putting the program “on track before the end of its term in January 2009.” (Great… do you have YOUR bombshelter built?)
  • And have we mentioned? That 77% of Americans believe the Iraq war is “going badly.” The new poll from CBS News shows that the 77% disapproval level is a new high and is up from the 66% it was at two months ago with “nearly half”, 47%, saying that the war is going “very badly.” (I’m almost certain that the 23% who think it’s going well are employees of the White House… that or they’re idiots… take your pick)

As to what that 29% of Bush supporters could be thinking, one interesting view I have heard mentions that there is a certain percentage of the populace who are not capable of doing that much thinking at all, due to impaired intellectual capacity. While some of these folks surely also comprise a portion of the "I don't know" head count, it seems reasonable to assume that some of the "Must support the president at all times" group is also comprised of those incapable of the very small amount of intellectual cognition necessary to realize the connection between Bush and the road Bush has taken us on; thus the level of support by THINKING Americans may be even LOWER than 29%. . . .
