The Tuesday ‘BushWhack’ing

Another day older and deeper in debt…

  • Rep. Dennis Kucinich delivered an impassioned 35 articles of impeachment against “President” Bush last night on the floor of the House of Representatives. I would link to it, but the main stream media is ignoring it with all their might, which is a sad and pathetic display and I hope they get called on it. By whom I don’t know, but I hope it happens.
  • Regardless of Sen. Clinton calling for them to unite behind Sen. Obama, some in the leadership of the Democratic Party are nervous about some of the grumbling that Clinton supporters are doing. It seems that some of them may consider voting for McCain, Nader, or not at all rather than vote for Obama. I call Bullshit on them and you can expect a post about this later… unite the party dumbasses, don’t let the republicans steal the election because of party infighting…
  • Sen. McCain is once again calling for a gas tax holiday, despite every economist AND Vice President Cheney thinking it’s a bad idea… I would say senility has set in, but he’s already shown signs of senility and that proves, once again, that he’s too damn old to be president.
    “President” Bush says his current Euro Trip will be his last Europe explodes in applause upon hearing the news. Too bad we couldn’t convince Europe to keep him…
  • Secretary of Defense Robert Gates has recommended new Air Force leaders to replace Michael Wynne and Gen. Michael Moseley whom he fired last week following the mistaken transport of nuclear-tipped missiles across US states in 2007 and missile components being sent erroneously to Taiwan in 2006. (mistakes like this don’t surprise me considering how this administration operates. I’m more surprised that something worse hasn’t happened)
  • MOAA, Military Officers Association of America, “strongly supports” Sen. Jim Webb’s (D-VA) 21st Century GI Bill and says, while the “understand the concerns of those who would prefer to see enhanced GI Bill benefits tied to extended military service, the GI Bill has always been a veterans’ benefit, not a military retention benefit.” (Game. Set. Match. Webb. Get behind it McCain, or you’re going to lose a LOT of support among military voters. On second thought, continue to oppose it, it will only help Obama in November…)
  • Throughout the whole Jack Abramoff story, the White House has said this administration only had passive ties to him and that he had met “President” Bush in passing. Prepare yourselves, it turns out the White House lied (I know, it’s hard to believe isn’t it?) and the administration had stronger ties to Abramoff than it had publicly admitted. A new House Oversight Committee report shows that Bush himself met Abramoff on at least six occasions, even though the White House had previously acknowledged only two… (and the plot thickens…)
  • And have we mentioned? That, considering who they’re looking to for help, Senate republicans must be desperate? Senate republicans are “hungry” for the advice of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich with hopes that he can be an election guru for “the harshest climate for their party in over a decade.” And Gingrich is working it as he is “quietly expanding his influence in the upper chamber, where he is selling ideas on refurbishing the GOP’s image.” (First of all, Gingrich has never done anything quietly in his life. Second, why would you pin the hopes of your party on someone who was swept out the last time the republicans saw their fortunes ebb? Gingrich is not a savior, and if they’re looking to him for that, my hopes – and expectations – for November have just increased 3 fold…)

Whatever happened to people respecting our President? Like him or not, I have not seen any terrorist incidents in the US since 9/11. I guess thats not important...

Concerning nuclear weapons, Bush has continually pointed the finger of blame at other countries. First, it's Afghanistan, then Iraq, then Iran. All wrong. He has also imposed stricter and stricter sanctions upon countries that continue their development programs. I ask you, is this a good thing or a bad thing? Iran has never shown that they care what sanctions the UN puts on them, and this will cause the US to respond in force if they keep with their usual nature.

Hey, first Anonymous, why do I have this feeling you showed your "respect" to the last sitting president with a book full of tired Monica Lewenski jokes. As for the also-tired "we haven't had another attack" bull biskets, well, that's swell. Granted, quite a few presidents managed to get by with ZERO attacks on us, let alone one as large as 9/11 get by. If Katrina shows us how quickly Lord and Savior Bush can

Well said Jon. Also, with Mcain saying all this stuff about responding quicker to disasters like Katrina, did you know that he was on the ground, by Air-Force-One celebrating his own birthday with Bush when Katrina actually happened? How can he state anything about responding quicker?!
