The Tuesday 'BushWhack'ing

A slow day equals a short ‘Whack’ing...

  • Remember how it was reported yesterday that the White House was looking into a withdrawal plan for Iraq? Well, that was wrong and they’d like you to forget all about it mmkay… on second thought…(Nickels worth of free advice to the Bush White House; make up your damn mind…)
  • As republican support for the Iraq war crumbles, Senate Democratic leaders are trying to gather gop support aimed at forcing Bush to start withdrawing troops (Even with republicans against him, I don’t think Bush is going to stray from his coveted ‘surge’ strategy as he’s already shown time and again that the only opinions that matter to him are his and Cheney’s…)
  • The fallout from “President” Bush’s executive privilege invocation continues… (and now it seems some republicans are upset with Bush’s strategy. Could someone tell me what happens when a president loses the support of his own party?)
  • According to a new USA Today/Gallup poll, 62% of Americans believe that “the United States made a mistake in sending troops to Iraq.” This marks the first time that number has surpasses 60%… in that same poll, Bush’s approval rating hit a all-time Gallup low of 29%… (Sometimes the best snark is not saying anything at all and just allowing the facts to speak for themselves. This is one of those times…)
  • Back in April of 2005, AG Alberto “Albatross” Gonzales was testifying to Congress about the Patriot Act, and Gonzales said, under oath, that “there has not been one verified case of civil liberties abuse.” Apparently his memory is crap because six days earlier the FBI sent Gonzales a report, one of at least half a dozen, that showed “legal or procedural violations” committed by FBI agents… (Eventually Gonzoles is going to have to get the hint that he’s doing more harm to Bush’s administration and leave. No man can be that stupid, right? I mean besides Bush…)
  • And have we mentioned? That the DC Madam released her phone records Monday evening, and it’s already “ensnared” one politician as Sen. David Vitter (r-LA) apologized last night for his name appearing on the records… (I doubt that this is going to have as big an impact as some think, but we shall see…)
