The Wednesday ‘BushWhack’ing

Hump day… yeah, that’s all I got.

  • Our thoughts and prayers go out to all in the Midwest that are battling flooding.
  • “President” Bush said today that he has no regrets about Iraq. (Not a surprise. You have to have a heart and a brain to feel regret… he has neither)
  • Iraqi officials are objecting to US attempts to establish permanent bases in the country. Sami al-Askari, a senior Shiite politician close to Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, said; “The Americans are making demands that would lead to the colonization of Iraq. […] If we can’t reach a fair agreement, many people think we should say, ‘Goodbye, U.S. troops. We don’t need you here anymore.’”
  • The main stream media apparently got the memo that someone in Congress introduced articles of impeachment against Bushon Monday… way to stay with the news there guys.
  • Bush will met with German Chancellor Angela “If you rub my shoulders again I will break you in half” Merkel Wednesday and the meeting is expected to focus on Iran, the Middle East peace process, Afghanistan and the G8 summit. (How much influence does Bush have over any of the leaders in Europe is anyone’s guess, but it can’t be much, especially for nations that have cast a downward eye regarding his invasion of Iraq. Stay tuned, the meeting could be interesting… or it could be dull as a Fox “News” special…)
  • Now that each party has their presumptive nominee, the candidates are now able to focus on each other and their presidential policies, with Sen. McCain and Sen. Obama talking about the economy yesterday. McCain told a group of small-business owners Tuesday that his goal as president will be “to get our economy running at full strength again.” Later in the day Obama blasted McCain's economic plan as a “continuation of Bush economic policies: more tax cuts to the wealthy, more corporate tax breaks, more mountains of debt and little to no relief for families struggling with the rising costs of everything from health care to gas prices to a college education.” McCain then volleyed back and said that “under Sen. Obama's tax plan, Americans of every background would see their taxes rise: seniors, parents, small-business owners” which caused Obama to shoot back again and said McCain's prescription for the economy is “wrong for the country” and McCain's characterization of his plan is “just wrong.” (How many more months do we have to listen to this? 5? Oi… will we be able to stand it?)
  • While McCain seeks Independent voters, Obama is trolling for religious leaders
  • Sen. Obama’s campaign has a VP short-list with about 20 names on it. Stay tuned…
  • Secretary of Defense Robert Gates said yesterday that, regardless of who winds up being the next president, he is likely to “take a sensible approach” to the Iraq war… (which would be a first. And truth be told, hearing McCain’s plan, the only person with a sensible approach is Sen. Obama)
  • An Oklahoma Democrat is refusing to endorse Sen. Obama because he says his constituents don’t want him to. Rep. Dan Boren went on to say that the people who voted for him are “much more conservative.” (that’s one way to put it… or you could say you’re a republican who wanted to look like a Democrat in order to get elected. I wouldn’t expect any nice committee-ships if Obama wins Dan…)
  • And have we mentioned? That, per ThinkProgress, one of the men behind the Iraq invasion just purchased a scooter? And we’re not talking about Scooter Libby. Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld recently purchased a “LXV 150 scooter.” When asked about his purchase, Rummy refused to comment… (Sometimes words fail me. This is one of those times. Seriously Don, a scooter??)

What's "normal" about supporting the butchering of over 3,600 pre-born children every single day in the U.S.?? And every single one of those children had heartbeats and brainwaves.

You left-wing secular fundamentalists have no moral authority to wag your bloodied fingers at anyone about anything.
It's just one of the reason why your present hero, Hussein Obama, is gonna be electoral toast this November.

To the person talking about anti choice, I bet you are a guy. I fit were up to men they would never, ever have babies. But in all seriousness, abortion has always been around and it will always be, but if Roe V. Wade is shot down, only the rich will be able to have the choice and you can bet if they don't want the baby they will go to Europe and the poor can use coat hangers and back alley abortionist. I remember those day. So get real.
