The Friday ‘BushWhack’ing

It’s Friday and the end of a short work-week is almost done… have a quick ‘BushWhack’

  • Army General David Petraeus has indicated that he might be willing to consider a drawdown of 3,500 to 4,500 U.S. troops early next year… but only if the “recent success” on the ground continues. (All fine and good; but I’ll believe it when I see it… must be my ‘defeatist’ attitude…)
  • Seems to be like a lot of attention is being paid to a Democratic fundraiser, Norman Hsu, being wanted in connection with a 15-year old felony theft charge. From the way some media are reporting it, you would have thought that Hsu was responsible for the bridge collapse in Minneapolis, the insurgents in Iraq and everything else that is wrong with the world. Here’s a question; if he was a republican fundraiser, would we be hearing so much about him? I doubt it…
  • In case you hadn’t heard, Fred Thompson is running for president
  • On October 1st, the Bush(whacked) Administration had planned on expanding the use of satellite and aircraft spy technology by local and federal law enforcement agencies… but a few Democratic House leaders asked the administration to delay the expansion and the legality of the plan. (Wow… are we seeing some cajones from the Democrats? Or are they simply blowing sunshine up our collective skirts?)
  • And have we mentioned? That there’s a reason some world leaders roll their eyes when they have to meet our nation’s president? Yesterday during the APEC summit, he thanked Australia for hosting the OPEC summit and then brought up the “Austrian troops in Iraq,”… despite being in A-U-S-T-R-A-L-I-A… (What was it that the British newspaper asked after Bush was re-elected? How could 50,000,000 people be so dumb? Looking at our fearless leader, I think we may know why…)
