Bush's Secret World


Bush could not let go of his passion for privacy, never seeming to fully understand that he is a public servant
who owed the nation more transparency. He ran one of the most secretive administrations in history.

Cheney was allowed far-reaching duties and a zone of privacy that the president did not even reserve for himself.
Even Cheney's whereabouts were top secret, as was his spending of OUR MONEY.

When Cheney drunkenly shot a friend on a hunting trip in Texas, it took days to get the details.
His aides later said he had opposed early efforts to inform the White House press corps,
instead only authorizing communication with a tiny local newspaper.

He had to sober up before he could talk to the cops.

Scooter Libby, ended up a convict essentially for lying to protect his boss, who was a dirty crook who ordered
a campaign to discredit Joseph Wilson, who had dared to publicly oppose the administration's Iraq policies.
In retaliation, Libby criminally leaked classified information about Wilson's wife, who worked for the CIA.

Privacy was a relative matter for the Bush bastards. When it suited his team's purposes, they leaked sensitive
information about a CIA employee -- something they might have called treason if America had a free press.

When it came to the people's right to know, Bush could not have been less forthcoming, starting with his own
press conferences. It might seem like a petty issue to some, but it was significant and telling that Bush would
not allow follow-up questions in his sessions with reporters.

Bush and Cheney were always the bullies.
When they broke the law, they looked at the whore press and the Democrats and said,
"So?  What are you going to do about it?" and both wet themselves in fear and walked away.

How is it possible Reid & Pelosi are still in power?

Yes, he got away with all that - do you know why?

Because the pink-tutu Democrats allowed Bush to rape,
kidnap, torture and murder anybody he wanted, but now that
we have an elected president, they stand up to him?

 We'll watch him like hawks 'cause he's dangerous!"

He’s Leaving. Really


The man has been saying goodbye for so long, he’s come to resemble one of those reconstituted rock bands
that have been on a farewell tour since 1982. (Note: Obviously, she means The Who)  We had exit interviews
by the carload and then a final press conference on Monday, in which he reminisced about his arrival on the
national stage in 2000. "Just seemed like yesterday," he said.

I think I speak for the entire nation when I say that the way this transition has been dragging on, even yesterday
does not seem like yesterday. And the last time George W. Bush did not factor into our lives feels like around 1066.

Remember how much the whore media whined about "Clinton fatigue?"

Yeah, we got pretty fed up with that peace and prosperity and the surplus.
The whore media said we needed a "new direction" - so they propped up the Bush bastards.

"Imagine if it were reversed and I was the one who made the 'mistake' Timothy Geithner made.
  There would be penalties. There would be hearings. Wesley Snipes and I would be blood brothers."
        -- Der vulgar Pigboy, getting it worng as usual

 Butt Rush, you got caughht with possession with intent to sell Hillbilly heroin - but since you're a millionaire
 and were friends with the crooked Florida governor, you got off with less than a slap on the wrist..
 Oh, and classy move - sending your maid to buy the drugs, Pigboy.

 Then you got caught a second time bringing back illegal penis-hardening drugs when you took
 that boys-only trip to the Dominican Republic, the top boy prostitute destination in the world.

 Once again, because you're rich and connected - no penalties.
 So why whine about a man who made a mistake that didn't involve heroin or child sex?

Torture is a Good Thing
 by Bush's CIA Director Michael V. Hayden


"These torture techniques worked," Hayden said of the agency's interrogation program.

"One needs to be very careful" about eliminating CIA "authorities," he said, because "if you create
barriers to doing things . . . there's no wink, no nod, no secret handshake. We won't do it."

If you create barriers to torture, they won't torture?
Isn't that where America was when Bush stole power?

Hayden's spirited defense of the agency came on the same day that Eric Holder, our next attorney general,
testified on Capitol Hill that waterboarding, an interrogation method used by the CIA, amounted to torture.

Whoever thinks waterboarding isn't torture should put themselves in my hands for ten minutes.
I give you my Nancy Grace Guarantee he'll think it's torture by minute 11.

The One That Got Away


In assessments of the Bush presidency, the failure to bring Osama bin Laden to justice should be noted as a significant disappointment.
On the bright side, al-Qaeda has decided not to mount any significant attacks on the U.S. homeland. In that respect the most important
objective of the antiterrorism strategy has been brokered. But Bush leaves office with a lingering sense of incompleteness, having not
achieved the one thing that would have enabled him to use the word “victory” in the War on Terror without caveat...

Meanwhile Osama bin Laden is left with if not the last laugh then at least one of the best. He outlasted President Bush."

Never in history have two "enemies" given each other such valuable gifts.

Bush made Osama the biggest (by leaps and bounds) figure in the Muslim world.
Osama gave Bush an excuse to void the Constitution and steal all of Iraq's oil.

"Guantanamo is sort of a symbol I guess to the left in this country and maybe to some
  of our critics overseas.  But the fact is it's a very well-run facility. It's first-rate."

 When Cheney says "First rate," he means the torture devices at Gitmo are state-of-the-art.

 Subject: thank you, Bart

Dear Bart and Mrs. Bart,
Just wanted to thank you for all the recent posts and updates despite  your recent stressful situation.

It will be exciting to watch Obama become president.
Finally, someone with good judgment and brains in the White House.

Thanks for your insight, humor and persistence in the face of adverse  conditions.

Kat, thanks for that.
I remember when Bush stole power. Some whore on CNN said,
"Pickles is riding with the president to some function,"
and I thought,   "Why is Pickles traveling with Bill Clinton?"

Now we gotta re-train our minds again.

When some whore on CNN says, "The White House said today..." we have to resist
the urge to say, 'Those lying bastards have never told the truth about anything."

"There's going to be some missteps, we're going to have some false starts.
  We're going to fall short sometimes and I'm going to make some mistakes..."
    -- Obama, from my memory, talking about his upcoming administration

 That may be the smartest thing I've heard him say.

 By admitting up-front that mistakes will be made, he once again distinguishes himself from the

Bart, Is the Tulsa World as bad as The Daily Oklahoman?


The Daily Oklahoman is FOX News in print - all Rove-approved lies.
The Tulsa World is a centrist, right-leaning paper that always endorses the Republican,
but that's not Nazi-enough for the only state where Obama didn't win one single county.

Oklahoma is now officially the backwards capitol of America.
Indiana and South Carolina joined the the America of the future while
Oklahoma regrets the progress that Democrats and Martin Luther King made.

In Oklahoma, "a nigger's" place is on the football field.
If you give us a national title, we'll even elect "a nigger" to congress.

Two little letters  - EX -  never meant so much as they do now,
since we can put them before the word president when talking about Bush.

I sometimes wondered if that day would every arrive.
Your site, more than any other, helped me cope during this worst president's term in office.
I wish I tuned in (years!) sooner but better later than never.
So, I want to give you a giant thank you for all your work.

The job is not done of course, but it is a whole new and different ball game.
I have a friend who is having knee surgery on inauguration day.
I told her that it was a good omen as the country is getting a new start under
President Obama, and she will be starting with a brand new knee. New steps forward for all.

There is alot of work to be done but honestly, I can't keep my hopefulness tapped down.
Now that the Bush nightmare is really, really over, it wants to bubble over like a freshly un-corked bottle of champagne.
I feel free, like a great weight has been lifted.

Thanks again Bart, for ALL you do.

Holding Bush Accountable


President Obama, on his first day in office, can make a number of changes that will mark a clean break with the Bush presidency.
He can, and should, issue an executive order revoking any prior order that permits detainee mistreatment by any government agency.
He should begin the process of closing Guantánamo, and he should submit to Congress a bill to end the use of military commissions,
at least as presently constituted. Over the coming months he can pursue other reforms to restore respect for the Constitution, such as
revising the Patriot Act, abolishing secret prisons and "extraordinary rendition," and ending practices, like signing statements, that
seek to undo laws.

While these steps are all crucial, however, it is not enough merely to cease the abuses of power and apparent criminality that marked
the highest levels of George W. Bush's administration. We cannot simply shrug off the constitutional and criminal misbehavior of the
administration, treat it as an aberration and hope it won't happen again. The misbehavior was not an aberration--aspects of it,
particularly the idea that the president is above the law, were present in Watergate and in the Iran/Contra scandal. To fully restore the
rule of law and prevent any repetition of Bush's misconduct, the abuses of his administration must be directly confronted. As Indiana
University law professor Dawn Johnsen--recently tapped by Obama to head his Office of Legal Counsel--wrote in Slate last March,
"We must avoid any temptation simply to move on. We must instead be honest with ourselves and the world as we condemn our
nation's past transgressions and reject Bush's corruption of our American ideals."

What we need to do is conceptually simple. We need to launch investigations to get at the central unanswered questions of Bush's
abuse of power, commence criminal proceedings and undertake institutional, statutory and constitutional reforms. Perhaps all these
things don't need to be done at once, but over time--not too much time--they must take place. Otherwise, we establish a doctrine
of presidential impunity, which has no place in a country that cherishes the rule of law or considers itself a democracy. Bush's claim
that the president enjoys virtually unlimited power as commander in chief at a time of war--which Vice President Dick Cheney
defiantly reasserted just last month--brought us perilously close to military dictatorship.

Inauguration Day, 2009:
A Day of Mourning
 by some right-wing racist bastards


Obama's economic program can be summed up in one word: reflation. Massive government spending, preceded by
an orgy of bailouts. Earmarks, which yesterday were anathema, are now presented as a panacea. Spending on this scale
requires some degree of bipartisan complicity, but how will Obama get the Republicans to go along? You'll notice he's
been courting them rather assiduously, and that's given rise to a new brand of "conservatives," the so-called Obamacons.

I don't know why antiwar.com is going after Obama - maybe for the same reason that Kos is, that Buzzflash is,
that Arianna is, or why most of the pro-Obama camp has turned on him before he even starts the f-ing job.

Well, actually I do know why - it's because Democrats hate their heroes.


Why does the loyalty gene skip many Democrats?

Random thought...

Did you see that great inauguration concert Sunday night on HBO?

There were lots of good acts, but only one great one.
After most of the acts had played, Biden did a short speech.

Springsteen previewed his extra-boring Superbowl set, failing to heed
the wise advice I gave him about avoiding funeral songs at festive settings.
Sheryl Crow played, Beyonce, and Mary J. Blige did fine - she's almost always great.

Then out came Stevie Wonder, Usher and Shakira and the Obamas started dancing.
Can you believe America has a president who can dance and not look stupid?
Garth did some country songs - you know - that unity thing, again.

Then it was time for the biggest band in the world (with Zeppelin retired )
U2 came out and played MLK's "Pride" on MLK Day, 
on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, with the Bidens and the 
Obamas watching - probably seeing U2 live for the very first time.

"Free at last, they took your life,
  they could not take your pride."

It was a big enough occasion to drink some REAL tequila, if you catch my drift.

U2's a damn hard act to follow, 
"And also - the Palestinian dream..." 
but Obama was up to the challenge with a great speech that avoided the usual cliches.

Oh, and no issue tomorrow.   I'm going to spend the day listening to the
terribly-self-important Wolf the Whore bloviate horseshit again and again..

"It's all about ME, Bart."

Yeah, I know, Wolf...
