Title: Is Bush looking to hide blame for his Iraq policy?
-
-
RAIN

With only two-full years left in his Presidency, G. Bush
appears to be looking for a person, place – or election to
lay blame for his entire Iraq war policy. Which is quite a
lot to shovel. With the recent negative comments by the
neo-conservative architects of Bush's plan, then the drop
kick of Secretary of Defense, Rumsfeld, it would appear
that Bush's heard their criticism of his Iraq war execution
and is doing some fast pedaling. In order to offset failures
that will clearly be deemed historical and blights on Bush
foreign policy decisions. Yes, the great-decider, may now
be in hyper-drive to become, the great-shredder of records.
-
Enter – Ollie North. Since it likewise appears that Bush Jr.
only has presidential history as far back as 'dear-old-dad it
might be something relevant to see how long it takes Ollie
to enter the picture. Through a visit to the White House, or
a call from Mr. President himself to North's Fox news line.
-
After all the election's hurricane like fall-out, conservative
talking heads are now jabbering willy-nilly about jumping
off the Bush fire-wagon. Further the demise of Geo. Allen
in his recent senatorial re-election bid, spells doom for the
neo-conservative movement of the Republican party in '08.
-
Leaving the fate of the GOP, squarely in the hands of hand
wringer – Senator John McCain (R) Arizona, who has not
been untouched, politically, by Bush's handling of Iraq war
decisions – if not engineering. With McCain being pro-war.

If you survive the battle itself, it may be the pause that gets
you in the aftermath. Bush's Iraq plan has now placed great
strain on our economy, if not our future. Our next generations
as well. Bush's war plan – it appears – intended, in part, to put
such a priority on U.S. treasury funds, that entitlement funding
would be left to whither on the vine. Social Security Retirement
& Medicare – being the first two victims of any GOP cash flow
re-allocations – followed by Social Security Disability benefits.
-
In the US Supreme Court decision of 2002, "Commissioner v.
Walton" – Bush's appointed Commissioner of Social Security
argued successfully to that court that the administration's case
was saving Social Security $80 billion over a ten-year period.
Which meant in reality or layman's terms, was denying or thus
preventing disability payments to qualified applicants to a tune
of $80 billion dollars. Passing, instead, the cost on to state and
local governments. Not unlike Bush's 'no-child-left-behind' act.
-
Making Bush's Iraq war machine – powered by burning dollars.
This folks appears to be Bush & Rove's use for Clinton surplus.
Meaning if it's tied-up in a corporate military-industrial budget
that's too-complex to understand, ie., oversight, Sen. Warner-R
Virginia, then it's easier to deny federal-aid to the masses or for
any hurricane disaster prevention. Less to poverty, education or
any handicapped, disabled, and incapacitated individual citizens.

Making the concept of compassionate conservatism just a "con."

Title: Poetic Justice: Virginia Republicans want re-count

[Note – this article was written early in the afternoon &
it was projected & announced at 8:45 pm that Allen lost]

What a paradoxical political state we live in today – Just
six years ago – Democrats wanted all the votes, counted
in Florida, but the Republicans went to court, in order to
stop any re-count. Now that incumbent Senator Allen (R)
Virginia – is on his political deathbed – the Republicans
in his campaign are screaming slogans like, "count all the
votes." My, how time makes the heart grow fonder. Allen
re-elect worker, Frank Donatelli, advises Allen to "afford
yourself all of the remedies of Virginia law." Why not, he
nor his party will pay for most of it. Va. taxpayers will pay
the extended election bill. Besides Allen's Senate loss was
not the closest. Montana was decided by a smaller margin.
-
But, don't tell George Felix Allen that. He's suddenly got a
new dose of re-count religion, if not the conservative blues.
-
You know the tune, "I hurts so bad...I can't spell glad ...oh...I
hurts so bad...nobody loves me, but my mama, & sometimes
I think she's jiving me too...now I've got 'dem 'ole re-election
commonwealth blues...boo-hoo-hoo-hoo ...where's foot-ball?"
-
"Oh well, I can't dance & my legs are thin..." Maybe now we
will learn the "secret" to re-counting electronically cast votes.
-
Virginia Republicans are quick & fast to remind the national
crowd – the whole world's watching – and news media crew,
that this is practically a routine in the Commonwealth. With a
recent election for Governor going to a Democrat, but a GOP
Attorney General candidate edging out the "dem" by just 350.
-
Go figure – and the Democratic candidate for attorney general
did just that – figuring that something was rotten in Denmark,
with regards to GOP vote counts. Not a surprise, though, when
a Virginia judge only allowed a very "selective" re-count to go
ahead. Meaning that not all voter precincts were allowed to be
re-counted – with many just re-canvassed and not "re-counted."
-
That's just one of the "remedies" afforded to the Senator-elect
Webb's side of the victory – under contradictory Virginia law.
-
But then Geo. Allen knows full well, about all the paradoxes
of Virginia laws. Having been, one of the great "deciders" of
revised Virginia law, during his tenure as the Commonwealth
of Virginia – Governor. More like the Mel Brooks character
in "Blazing Saddles" – played by Brooks himself, the "GOV."
-
Who quipped, "Give them ...these paddles...in lieu of pay...".
-
To which we now present to loser Allen, here's your paddle.
-
Congratulations to Senator-elect James "Jim" Webb – amen.
