The Friday ‘BushWhack’ing

Have a short whacking…

  • The Bush(whacked) Administration acted yesterday Move could allow 14 "high-value" terrorism suspects at Guantanamo to join other detainees in challenging status as enemy combatants in court.
  • Ignoring a veto threat by “President” Bush’s crayon, the Senate approved a $35 billion expansion of the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) yesterday. With a 67-29 vote – with 18 republicans voting for the program – the Senate has strongly voiced their support for this plan… and if Bush vetoes it, expect his approval ratings to sink even more…
  • WaPo headline: “With Legacy in Mind, Bush Reassesses His Agenda.” (Not gonna help Mr. Bush… not. Gonna. Help.)
  • And have we mentioned? That the republican presidential candidates held a debate last night… and four of them were no-shows as Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney, Fred Thompson and John McCain all declined the invitation… Oh, did I mention that it was a debate aimed at issues faced by minorities? The audience heard, from those that DID show up, from Gov. Mike Huckabee, who said he was “embarrassed” for his party, and from Senator Sam Brownback, who said the absence of the leading Republican candidates was a “disgrace.” (For a party that is desperately trying to get minorities into the fold – this was quite possibly the dumbest thing any of their campaigns could have done… and yet; hardly any mention in the so-called main-stream media. So let’s get the word out…)
