Bush tell the truth about Iraq
The media has to be tougher on the president's tendency
to dissemble about his policies, and then again when he's
caught -- especially when it comes to war.
by Brendan Nyhan
Bush has been protected by his reputation for honesty, the media's distaste for complex
policy issues and -- since Sept. 11 -- his status as a wartime president. As a result, the
administration has gotten a pass when it has used deceptive, even dishonest arguments to
sell key pieces of its agenda, most notably the tax cut and Bush's plan to create private
Social Security accounts. And even when serious questions about its arguments have
been raised, the White House has dissembled wildly rather than admit mistakes or mendacity.

Subject: A Few Election Thoughts
First of all, it is hysterical watching
the media and the white house spin the fact that this election
is a "mandate" for Bush. Or that this election somehow conveys legitimacy to the unelected fraud.
Or that there is such a groundswell of support for Mr. Bush that the Democrats need to get out
of the way. A total of 41,000 votes would have swung the election another way.
In fact, only about 21% of registered voters
pulled the lever for the Repugnicans last Tuesday night.
Yes, the evil doers got more than we got, but a broad mandate its not. Now on the topic of Bush's
masterful command of the campaign and how the Republicans are such fabulous politicians, that too,
is bullshit. In each close Senate race, the winners (Coleman, Talent, Chambliss and Allard) ran as
Democrats by blurring the line on significant issues like Social Security PRIVATIZATION, while at
the same time used hateful slash and burn negative advertising against their opponent.
Take a case in point with Saxby Chambliss
in Georgia. How a man who avoided military service
(Chambliss) successfully paint a man who volunteered for duty in Viet Nam and who left three of his
limbs on the battlefield (Cleland) as soft on national defense issues is beyond me. But obviously not
beyond the ignorant crackers in Georgia. So the lesson of the election is if you are a Repugnican and
you want to win, run like a Democrat and demonize your opponent. Its the Republican way.
Another lesson here is to NEVER go along
with Bush. Look at what he did to Jean Carnahan,
Cleland and others who supported him on his tax cuts for the greedy. He came back into their states
and thumped their pink tu tu asses. Some payback.
Why in the world would you trust the unelected
fraud on ANYTHING is beyond me.
And finally, the religiously insane kept a pretty low profile during this election, but you can be sure
their agenda will get a strong hearing up on Capital Hill. You do not see Jerry Falwall, Ralph Reed
and the other sanctimonious pricks threatening to split and create a new party like Saint Ralph and
the Greens. They take their lumps when they cannot have each and every thing on their agenda,
but they stick with the Repugnicans like glue. We could take a lesson.
Silverdragon likes Canada because of its
health care, but I would kinda prefer someplace where
you didn't get snowed in 78% of the year. Me and the cats are kinda leaning towards Providenciales.

Hey, not sure where that is, but there's no snow in Mexico and they have fine tequila there.

provisions in the Homeland Security Bill will receive the vaccination when the U.S. government
causes the smallpox outbreak.

Wednesday morning, I read CNN.com in horror,
realizing that a single party had total control
of the government. I fully expect about 3 or 4 the Supreme Court Justices to retire now so that
they can be replaced by other conservative justices with no resistance from Congress.
As the day wore on, I had time to think
about the situation. For one, I think the people really need
to see the results of having an unbalanced government. When a single point of view gets its way,
the results are probably going to be very bad. For another, I'm sick of that party's whining about
how they NEVER get their way.
Ok, boys, have at it. Let's see how good "your way" is for the country.

Subject: Last Tuesday
After Tuesday, I have become very afraid
for our country. The first thing that popped into
mind was "without anyone to keep Bush in check, what is going to happen?"
Then I realized that no one has been keeping
Bush in check. Certainly, it's nice to keep his
ultraconservative judicial nominees from being affirmed, but the democrats have not taken up
any strong issue. They let the PATRIOT act pass without a fight, and they even approved
giving him the power to unilaterally strike (read invade) Iraq. They haven't even tried to
pass corporate accountability laws!
Where is the Democratic leadership?
(They are under a table like Bernie Shaw
in Baghdad, wetting their pants and cowering
in fear that Karl Rove and VP Snarl might not be pleased with their rate of ass-kissing.)
Hopefully, whoever emerges as the new Democratic
leader will have backbone. He or she
will press issues such as corporate accountability. That person will not be a "yessir" to Bush
or any other republican, and that person will stand up for what is right.
It is time for change. The Dems have nothing else to lose... it's time to fight.

In Search of the Silver Lining
Now the Senate has no brakes. George W. Bush Inc. owns all three branches of government
- as well as the Supreme Court. America has become that truck plunging down Moosic Street
without any way of stopping. The only difference is that the driver is smiling."
More than 60% of the American public believes Saddam Hussein was a co-conspirator in the attacks of 9-11,
despite the fact that the Central Intelligence Agency had issued a report concluding that no connection existed.
A majority also believe that the so-called "death tax" will apply to them, despite the fact that fewer than 2.5%
of Americans actually possess sufficient net worth to be eligible. Most Americans believe that the recent
recession was caused by 9-11, despite the fact that it began prior to the attack. Many Americans believe that
the deficits projected by the government are unrelated to the tax cuts signed into law by Bush, although both the
CBO and the GAO have concluded that the tax cuts will greatly exacerbate the problem.
Joe Conason's Journal
That leadership does deserve blame for this defeat. And there is an honorable tradition of demanding
accountability from those who are responsible. Gephardt deserves credit for removing himself swiftly,
and let us hope that he doesn't nourish too many illusions about his future. Tom Daschle should probably
be next, having made the worst use of his best qualities during the past two years. He allowed himself and
his members to be battered ideologically without fighting back until it was far too late; he resisted bad policy
without vociferously arguing the Democratic case to the electorate. Quiet toughness is admirable, except
when the other side is shouting every day.

Do I Blame?
by Rude Rich
...with BartCop rebuttal
Bush promised to get bin Laden.
He vowed "to bring him to justice or bring justice to him."
That's why his approval numbers went to the high eighties.
That was 412 days ago ...and counting
Gephardt is resigning from his leadership
position. I have never been one of his supporters
and I agree that he deserves a lot of the blame for what happened Nov 5. Call me a bleeding heart,
but I actually feel some compassion for him. He has always been an advocate for civil rights and
equality and I'm not about to forget that just because I'm angry.
I think it's time to stop taking cheap shots
against him. He did the honorable thing in the end and
deserves some respect, at least from Democrats. Please remove him from your hit-list.

Well, I can agree with some of that.
