"Well, there's one terrible pilot."Bush says this is what went through his mind when the first plane hit New York's World Trade Center. How dumb is too dumb, folks? Hell, this crack is double dumb. He's dumb for thinking it, and even dumber for saying it. I always imagine Karen Hughes cringing somewhere when he does those things. Hey, but Georgie boy has been on a roll lately. During the campaign he said he would only tap the Social Security surplus in case of war, recession, or national emergency (of course, he said he would support the Kyoto treaty too). Shortly after the terror attacks, Bush said, "Lucky me! I hit the trifecta."
This is compassionate conservatism?
And while he's screwing the working guy, and his buddies over at Enron, who gave him millions to get "elected" are screwing their workers and stockholders, Bush is making sure the NRA gets their way. Ashcroft has refused to let the FBI sort through the gun buyer background checks from the Brady bill to see if terror suspects bought firearms, like their Al Qaida manuals tell them to. Charlton Heston is fucking somebody here. But what can I do? Nothing. I spit on Heston's star on Vine, just south of Hollywood Blvd. But I do that everytime I walk by it. Sometimes it has been pissed or shit on. Yeah, we're really doing a lot to kick Charlton out of the Oval Office. Meanwhile, terrorists may have purchased firearms and we wouldn't know it. Damn dirty republicans. A little aside about Enron: Kenneth Lay, a close friend and major contributor to both Bush presidents made off with over $300 million over the last few years. The top brass did equally as well. Directors included former Treasury Secretary Jim Baker, former Commerce Secretary Robert Mosbacher, and former Commodities Future Trading Commissioner Wendy Gramm, wife of Republican Senator Phil Gramm.
In the middle of Ashcroft's double speak about anyone who questions him helping the terrorists, he laid out this little nugget. "Defending our nation and its citizens against terrorist attacks is now our first law enforcement priority." He's a liar.
To pursue his pro-gun agenda, Ashcroft is willing to make himself a hypocrite, misstate the law, defy the FBI and jeopardize his investigation of Al Qaeda. Even the fiercest Ashcroft critics couldn't have imagined it. The FBI is furious, and the International Association of Chiefs of Police has filed a protest." -- Jonathan Alter, MSNBCRemember, when this right wing nut administration says thery're doing everything in their power to hunt down and stop terrorists, they're lying. They won't even let the FBI do their job. I'm sure somewhere in the white house the wizards of election stealing are figuring that they need evildoers. Without terrorists, Bush's approval rating wouldn't be this high. His reelection depends on having bad guys around and having the NRA convince enough red-necks in backwoods states to take advantage of the fact that their vote counts more than mine.
There's more! These greedy slime ball chicken shit sons of bitches running the country have the balls to stop a bill that would have protected children and teachers from pesticides.
"A congressional committee has killed legislation seeking to protect public school children and staff from certain pesticides. The provision was backed by Democrats, the nation's largest teachers union and even a pesticide group, but it was opposed by Republicans and the National School Boards Association wary of jurisdictional disputes and the possibility of costly, and unfunded, mandates". Jay Feldman, head of the group Beyond Pesticides, said in a statement, 'Children, teachers and school staff deserve the basic health and safety protections that this right-to-know and pest management measure would provide'...the legislation would have required public schools to notify parents about the use of bug-killing chemicals and states to develop a school pest-management plan that considers alternatives to toxic sprays...All Democrats on the committee voted for the legislation, as did one Republican. But all House Republicans voted against the amendment, ensuring its defeat." -- MSNBC
And, these assholes are attacking the man they know could beat them in a fair election. They have to use their money to spread lies about a true American hero who served in the armed forces instead of being AWOL from a little camp his Daddy got him into. He can speak in full, coherent sentances. He cares about people and proposes legislation that actually does something for working people. Obviously, these Republican weasels are scared of this guy, or they wouldn't be smearing him so early.
"In South Dakota last month, newspapers carried political ads featuring side-by-side photographs of Saddam Hussein and Senate Majority Leader Thomas A. Daschle (D). The ads accused Daschle of helping to keep the Iraqi dictator in power by blocking oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. The ad campaign -- sponsored in part by the lobbying arm of the Family Research Council, a Washington advocacy group -- is part of an escalating attack against Daschle in his home state and elsewhere by conservatives and their allies on Capitol Hill." -- John LancasterDASCHLE FOR PRESIDENT IN 2004!
Maybe Ann Richards as VP? Remember, you heard it here first!
