BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZ

When I pause, take a deep breath and look around at what George Bush, the Bush administration and the Repuglican Party have done to my country, I can only sit down for a while and cry!

* * *

“Bush….is quietly trying to pardon himself of any crimes connected with the torture and mistreatment of U.S. detainees...The ‘pardon’ is buried in Bush's proposed legislation.” There you have it, George Bush doesn’t give a rats behind about the CIA “interrogators” or our soldiers for that matter, he’s only worried about his own rear-end! This Congressional hullabaloo is all about saving George Bush and only George Bush! He could care less about what dangers “clarifying” the Geneva Conventions causes for our soldiers, afterall “gettin out of harm’s way” and saving his ass is all that matters to Bush!

* * *

There was a time in America, way back before Bush, when a National Intelligence Estimate meant something and would initiate corrective action! For example, find out what to do to correct the mistakes, what we need to go to work and fix what’s broken, what we need to get busy on to ensure the safety and security thing worldwide! These days, it has become fodder for plausible deniability, rhetoric, spin, and propaganda for the Repuglican Party. Without the bulls**t, the public just might find out there’s a Repuglican moron at the helm and America is sliding into an abyss!

* * *

Given that the Bush administration has repeatedly intimidated those who would tell the American people the truth -- with a variety of threats, including early retirement, demotion, outright firing, and (remembering the EPA report that the air around the tragedy of the WTC on Sept. 11 was safe) altering “reports” to suit only the policies that reflect the Bush agenda -- do you think they want more time to fix that second NIE “draft”? Do you think they are worried that it will affect the November elections in its current form? Do you believe this is another Rove/Bush political move to cover up what’s really happening? YES, YES, and YES! Can our safety and security wait for the Bush administration to issue another prevaricated, bogus “report”? NO!

* * *

“Indeed, it was one of the central arguments of the antiwar movement before the invasion more than three years ago, that an unprovoked invasion of Iraq would inflame anti-Americanism and increase the terrorist threat at home and abroad.” Anyone with half a brain knew that “going to Baghdad ” would result in horrific consequences and untenable disaster, for God’s sake even Poppy knew that! But then the sh*t for brains son, lacking tough love, is on a quest and frankly doesn’t give a damn! For him it matters not that thousands of innocent people are dying, that American soldiers are dying, that the world is a more dangerous place, because the only thing that matters to George Bush is satiating his personal wants, needs, and desires!
