The Wednesday ‘BushWhack’ing

It’s Halloween… boo.

  • On Halloween, here’s some words guaranteed to make you, and many others, shiver; there’s a movement afoot to convince Laura Bush to run for Presidentaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh!!!!!!
  • The Democratic presidential candidates held another debate last night, and it was a group attack on ftontrunner Sen. Clinton (D-NY). Sen. Obama (D-IL) had the best, and most true I might add, line of the night when he said to Clinton; “Part of the reason that Republicans, I think, are obsessed with you, Hillary, is because that's a fight they're very comfortable having.” (Ouch. With just over 2 months before the first primaries begin, this race has all the markings of becoming contentious very quickly… stay tuned)
  • Now the ball is in the Democrat’s court. “President” Bush told a group of republican lawmakers yesterday that he won’t approve SCHIP until the tobacco tax increase is removed. Fine, that was one of the things I DIDN’T like about the bill, and neither did a lot of other Liberals. Now we get to see if the Dems are serious about insuring children or if they were using SCHIP to gain ground on Bush and the republicans. Stay tuned…
  • Hello kettle, this is pot. You’re black. “President” Bush blasted the Democratic-controlled Congress on Tuesday and said that “Congress is not getting it's work done.” (He did not go there…). He went on to say that; "The House of Representatives has wasted valuable time on a constant stream of investigations, and the Senate has wasted valuable time on an endless series of failed votes to pull our troops out of Iraq." (Wow, he DID go there. Let me get this straight, the House is wasting time investigating various incidents of the White House breaking the law and such, and in setting a timetable aimed at getting our troops out of Iraq – despite the majority of Americans WANTING both of those. Hmmm, maybe Rep. Kucinich was on to something)
  • And have we mentioned? That the republican candidates for president have blown-off another minority debate? Barely a month after skipping a PBS debate aimed at issues facing minorities, most of the gop candidates are postponing, AGAIN, another black voter forum due to the ever-popular “scheduling conflicts.” (Fellow republicans blasted them for missing the PBS debate, and here they are doing it again. What the hell is wrong with these people?)
