The Monday ‘BushWhack’ing

Another Monday, another week of politics… T

  • New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson is getting gruff for endorsing Obama from, well, the Clinton campaign who thinks they own him since they helped get started in National politics… in return, the Clinton camp, who had been pressing for his endorsement, shrugged it off and said that each candidate has many great endorsees… (wow, the Clinton campaign responding with inane comments, who could have EVER seen that coming?)
  • Sen. Obama wants someone to investigate PassportFileGate
  • Vice President Dick Cheney is in the Middle East… this won’t end well…
  • This is what you want to hear; Attorney General Michael Mukasey has been surprised by the scope and variety of potential terrorism threats facing the United States
  • This shouldn’t surprise anyone with a brain. Chile’s ambassador to the UN, Heraldo Muñoz, writes in a new book that efforts by the Bush(whacked) Administration to persuade other countries into supporting the invasion of Iraq “generated lasting ‘bitterness’ and ‘deep mistrust’ in Washington’s relations with allies in Europe, Latin America and elsewhere.” He goes on to describe how the “rough-and-tumble diplomatic strategy” employed by the administration included threats and punishment… (Is it any wonder our standing in the world has dwindled to almost non-existence? The next president, republican or Democrat, has a long tough road ahead…)
  • And have we mentioned? That the White House disclosed in court that older “computer hard drives have been destroyed”? AP is reporting that the White House said that a court proposed e-mail recovery plan stemming from lawsuits brought on by the National Security Archive and CREW would be worthless because “[w]hen workstations are at the end of their lifecycle and retired … the hard drives are generally sent offsite to another government entity for physical destruction.” (wow, once again they circumvent the law and once again, NO ONE has the balls to call them on it… for God’s sakes people, it’s a lame-duck admintration, start treating them like it and DO SOMETHING!)
