BUSH TAKES YET ANOTHER VACATION WHILE OUR SOLDIERS CONTINUE TO DIE IN A MADE-UP WAR AND HIS TOP AIDE IS UNDER INVESTIGATION FOR OUTING AN UNDER COVER CIA AGENT.
Does it give you pause?
You should be shaking with rage. If you aren’t you have a serious problem. One cannot “mis” underestimate the cold, calculating cruelty of Bush when he can flit off to his ranch, at taxpayer expense, thank you very much, while at least 7 of our soldiers were killed today in Iraq. Most presidents with a bare scrap of principle, loyalty, patriotism and honor would never leave the White House during war time, except for work related travel. The majority of past Presidents would be seriously and personally impacted by the extraordinary hardship war is to the people of our country, mostly those who serve and their families. The President of the United States is, after all, the go to guy who has the power to declare war on another nation. Should he not at least PRETEND to care?
Vacationing at a time like this should be unthinkable. To add insult to injury, our "president" appoints the mad and raving Bolton without Senate approval before dashing off. Even some of the GOP don't approve of this stunt.
This “ war president” as he proudly calls himself, has probably logged more vacation time than any President to date in the U.S. If there are any college students out there who may view this site and have some free time before classes start in the fall, please do a search for presidential vacations and send your findings to me.
OH! I forgot, the GOP is going to spin the “WAR” in Iraq to a mere “STRUGGLE.” A struggle indeed you pathetically mendacious, immoral, un-American and pitiless creatures. You are utterly reprehensible and profoundly abusive.
On to the news at hand, that isn't about the Air France flight that crashed in Toronto due to weather and thank God, miraculously, there are no causalities but the MSM can’t stop talking about this as if nothing else is going on in the world. I think MSM news is becoming a contrived nightly action movie.
I am quite disgusted and angry tonight, as if you couldn't tell. LS
NEWS OF SUBSTANCE
This is an awesome piece written by none other than one of my favorite writers, Will Rivers Pitt. It is about GOP hypocrisy and shame. No one says it better. LS
This was to be expected. The word "Irony" was deleted from the GOP Dictionary many years ago, along with words like "Shame" and "Hypocrite." These fellows achieved their lofty status in no small part because of a genuinely loose-cannon investigator named Starr, who burned five years of our lives leaping from land deals to consensual sex in a Puritanical crusade that had more to do with the 2000 election and stalling out an effective Democratic administration than anything else.

WHAT HAPPENED TO NEWS ON THE KING OF ETHICS, TEXAS TOM DELAY?
Various ethics groups are frustrated because nothing is happening with regard to Tom DeLay's questionable ethics practices. News in this area seems to be dropping off the planet, much to the delight and relief of DeLay, I would imagine.
Various ethics groups are beginning to blame the Democrats for their lack of action in pursuing the numerous DeLay ethics scandals. I have to admit that I am frustrated as well. Why is our party taking a "wait and see" approach? When will they learn that they must to go after the likes of DeLay with an unrelenting sledge hammer to drive the bully into a corner from which he cannot retreat? The Texas GOP is all about slash, bash, trash and burn the opponent. Get a grip Dems! You gotta do to DeLay what Starr did to Clinton. LS
