How Scared Must Bush Be

A news conference out of the blue? A blatant political move to boost the conservative cause in a time of important elections, that's what it was. Bush is the lowest he's been in the polls, the Republican are in real danger of losing their standing in upcoming state elections, and there is no front runner Republican for president. What's a good little boy to do? Why, go on TV and talk about how much good he's done and how much good conservatives have done and how we should keep the "conservative" course. I sure hope Americans are smart enough to see through this.

An article about the conference is here.

One of the money quotes for me when asked about a day there won't be a troops in Iraq: "That, of course, is an objective. And that will be decided by future presidents and future governments of Iraq," he said. Great. Throw us into this horrible war that you didn't realize would be going on this long and that things would stay so bad, but it won't be your problem to finish it. That'll be the next president. I think it's a tactical error because when I heard that quote I thought, "You're damn right it will be someone else's decision--a Democrat's decision!"

That is the objective my ass .. here is a story from MSNBC about the permanent bases being built without any public discussion in Congress. Of course, Rummy the Dummy doesn't like word "base" he wants to call them "permanent duty stations" ... good grief

Yeah. "Permanent duty stations" sounds so less military, official, and intrusive. Sheesh.

I like how Bush talks about how he knows we'll succeed and sets the timeline out for someone else's watch, so he can blame them for however the war turns out. I think people will see through it. His page in the history books won't be a pretty one.

i read that REAL military spending is 50 per cent of the budget, and bush is merely their spokespuppet. Who runs the country? Not bush; he's the fall guy. Same thing for who ever is selected next.....
