The Wednesday ‘BushWhack’ing

The morning after… and I’m sore…

  • Super Fat Tuesday was yesterday… here’s a rundown of who won what: Clinton won Arizona, Arkansas, California, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oklahoma and Tennessee. Obama won Alabama, Alaska, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota and Utah… with New Mexico still too close to call. On the republican side: McCain won Arizona, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Missouri, New Jersey, New York and Oklahoma. Romney won Alaska, Colorado, Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota and Utah. Huckabee won Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Tennessee and West Virginia. What does all this mean? That neither side has a true front-runner. Yes, McCain has more delegates, but with Romney and Huckabee winning some states, it shows that McCain is not loved by all on the right. And the Democrats? Well, we have two strong candidates, but somewhere down the line one of them will emerge as the front-runner we need. Stay tuned as the Dems have seven more primaries fast approaching
  • A Senate showdown on the economic stimulus package, which the media seems to have forgotten about since it was announced with much fanfare days ago, is looming. Here’s an idea – STFU and get it done…
  • Director of National Intelligence Mike McConnell said yesterday that “Al Qaeda is gaining in strength from its refuge in Pakistan and is steadily improving its ability to recruit, train and position operatives capable of carrying out attacks inside the United States.” (What more needs to be said? Al-Qaeda was behind the 9/11 attacks… and Bush and his cronies started going after them in Afghanistan, got them on the run, then promptly changed course and invaded Iraq while ignoring the true group that carried out the attacks of 9/11, and now they’re gaining in strength and numbers. Way to go Bush… ya dumbass)
  • Like he’s done with so many other things, (clean coal energy), Bush is cutting funding to something he boasted about in the SOTU. This time the victim is the Millennium Challenge Account, a program designed to not only widen our fight against AIDS but to also aid democracy in developing nations. (What. A. Tool. Is the man truly that simple and addle-minded that he doesn’t think people will notice that he crowed about the achievements and future of a program that he then cuts down to size with his budget?? The man clearly lives in his own little world and doesn’t care about anything but himself… January 20, 2009 can NOT come soon enough…
  • Bush is also screwing public broadcasters with their pants on with a budget that “cut(s) in half the $400 million allocated in advance by Congress for fiscal year 2009 and cut $220 million from the $420 million already planned for 2010... nice job again Georgie boy…
  • And have we mentioned? That the Iraq war is endangering the country? Sure we already had an idea that it was, but now we have someone who knows about these types of things agreeing with us… and it’s someone in Bush’s administration. The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Michael Mullen, said in prepared testimony yesterday that “U.S. forces are ’significantly stressed’ by fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan” and that the “pace of ongoing operations impacts our ability to be ready to counter future threats.” (Lovely… an unjust war that, on the surface, doesn’t seem to have us safer is actually putting us more at risk. But then again this isn’t a total surprise, is it?)

Hillary Ready for REAL Change said...

Obama is WAY off when he says "We have to decide on change or more of the same" Hillary Clinton is one of the good ones, not "one of the same" or part of "the past" that is just ludicrous. Bill Clinton radically changed what Bush Sr did to ruin America. We should be proud of Bill's work as a Democrat and the Clinton's rewarded for that, not lumped in with Bush's failure of "politics as usual" or "the past" characterizing the Clintons this way is disrespectful to all they did for our country, the Democratic party and just an outright LIE. The Clinton's I remember did the exact OPPOSITE of everything the Bush's have done. There are some serious changes needing to be made in Washington and SOME new blood can help to make that change no doubt, but you don't just expel every one of them, you will end up with more the same mess. You keep the good ones and Hillary is one of the best. You don't throw the baby out with the bath water and expect everything to be fixed, VERY unwise. Eliminating the good ones and their experience will not solve a thing or bring the kind of real change we need.

Ok HRFRC... that is your opinion, and it's valid. The only problem is you're attacking pro-Obama people on a blog where no one is on the attack. We didn't attack Ms. Clinton nor Mr. Obama... only the republican candidates. So before you post this long-winded spam, perhaps you should read the post you are attaching it to.

Just a thought.
