The Monday ‘BushWhack’ing

Another week with 2 more primaries tomorrow in the 2008 presidential race, can you stand the excitement?

  • Senators Obama and Clinton split the Guam delegates
  • Louisiana’s 6th Congressional District had been republican for decades… not any more. Democratic State Rep. Don Cazayoux beat republican Woody Jenkins in a special election this past Saturday in a race that Democratic leaders say is foreshadowing the elections in November. (this is similar to Bill Foster winning Dennis Hastert’s republican seat in Illinois in February. If this trend continues to November, Democrats should have the majority in the House AND Senate. Stay tuned…)
  • The Bush(whacked) administration wants to give Libya, 20 years after the terror bombing aboard Pan Am Flight 103 that killed 189 Americans that the country admitted to have planned, a waiver on a law that allows terror victims to sue the country as well as the U.S. companies that are eager to do business with Libya… (Nice… screw the citizenry for this country and do business with terrorists… why am I not surprised?)
  • Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Adm. Michael Mullen, appearing on Israeli television, dismissed any near future war with Iran, saying that because of U.S. involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan, war with Iran would be “a very significant challenge for the United States right now to get into a third conflict in that part of the world.” (Why is it everyone in the world can see that EXCEPT for the people who make the decision to go to war??)
  • “President” Bush says the US will “weather this rough period” while also claiming that his administration has been “clear and candid” about the nation's economy and that they “saw the economic slowdown coming, we were upfront about these concerns with the American people, and we've been taking decisive action.” (How? By refusing to call it what it is? By initially rejecting an economic stimulus package? By not doing a damn thing about oil and gas prices? By you and your cronies insistence that the economy is ‘sound’?? How exactly have you been taking decisive action? Remember, ignoring it doesn’t count…)
  • Sen. Clinton appeared at an online town hall meeting this past Saturday and tried to boost her appeal to mothers…
  • Sen. Obama is tearing into Sen. Clinton about her proposed gas tax holiday (with most economists agreeing with him that it won’t do a damn thing) and her statement that the US could “obliterate” Iran – accusing her of echoing the “bluster” of President Bush (oooo, low blow… but true. While I will support whichever Dem gets the nod, Clinton has been pandering to liberal conservatives for some time now, and she needs to realize that that will hurt her in the end with the Democratic base…)
  • And have we mentioned? That Vice President Dick “President” Cheney is delusional? He spoke to more than 400 people this past Friday night at a hotel in Tulsa, Oklahoma and believes that history will be very favorable to the Bush presidency, saying; “When the history is written, it will be said this is a safer country and more hopeful world because George Bush was president,” (Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah… wait, he was serious? OMG, he’s senile like McCain…)

Economists have been known to be wrong. I'm an economists major, I know that forecasting is hard to do.
