BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

“Speaking to Terry Gross on NPR's Fresh Air - April 1, 2003,”  Bill Kristol: "And on this issue of the Shia in Iraq, I think there's been a certain amount of, frankly, Terry, a kind of pop sociology in America that, you know, somehow the Shia can't get along with the Sunni and the Shia in Iraq just want to establish some kind of Islamic fundamentalist regime. There's almost no evidence of that at all. Iraq's always been very secular."  Just goes to show Bush isn’t the only moron on the Repuglican block!

Is Osama faxing Karl Rove’s daily talking points?  “US President George W. Bush’s statement that the US is at war with 'Islamic fascists' will deepen anti-American and anti-Western sentiments.” Every time Bush opens his mouth he “emboldens terrorism”!  When will they learn, a muzzle on the moron is better for America?  Besides, we are seeing a rebirth of fascism right here at home thanks to George Bush, the Bush administration, the Repuglican majority in Congress, and the Repuglican Party!  He should “Clean behind his own backdoor before casting aspersions”!

If ignoring a PDB that warned “Osama determined to attack within the U.S.” which ultimately resulted in 9-11, if abandoning the war in Afghanistan and not capturing bin Laden, if the preemptive, unnecessary war in Iraq resulting in the deaths of thousands of innocent Iraqis and 2600 American soldiers, if aiding and abetting terrorist recruitment, if making it possible for an Iranian takeover of Iraq, if the current negative international American image, and the loss of all that’s holy in American democracy are reflective of how “good” the Repuglicans are on national security---then may God help us all!

* * *

If wanting to bring the troops home out of an impossible civil war in Iraq amounts to “cut and run,” then exactly what do you call flying off to Nebraska to hide in a cave in order “to get outta harm’s way” until there’s an all clear signal?

And some still think “black-box” voting is “safe”!  “... in recent months, components for electronic voting machines and even an entire machine are regularly up for sale, even on E-Bay. A quick check on E-Bay found this Diebold motherboard for sale, listed as brand new. ... the Diebold TS machine could be tampered with only a screwdriver ... programmers can figure out any number of ways to rig the vote with one of these machines. There are no tamper seals on the box at all. You can just use a screwdriver, open up the case. You can take it apart, put it back together and there's no trace.”  It’s called how to guarantee an election for a dummy!

“CHRISTINE ROMANS: ... last year, our government paid $38 billion to the wrong people. And $20 billion just disappeared. ... The GAO says the Pentagon is the biggest culprit, losing track of billions ... the government [is] failing to keep track of your money, it's borrowing huge sums to spend money it doesn't have. Last year, we paid $327 billion in interest. On track to spend more in interest than to run the country. REP. JIM COOPER (D), TENNESSEE: Our biggest lender is Japan, but increasingly, China is our creditor. But the oil-rich countries, including some of our enemies, like Iran, are increasingly buying our debt. So we're putting ourselves in a very vulnerable situation as far as national security is concerned by having foreign lenders control so much of our economic future. DOBBS: And this country, as you well know, and documented over the years, it appears we're a debtor nation in perpetuity, unless someone finds the leadership and the guts to deal with the issues that are staring us all in the face.”  Interesting, IRAN is buying our debt!

Hmm, a Democratic candidate who isn’t afraid of Dick Cheney, now that’s someone to vote for in November!!  “Pre-empting” Lieberman was the best “shock and awe” message the Democrats could send to the Repuglican Party, George Bush, and Dick Cheney.  After all, with Lamont and more guys like him, “liberation” and regaining “freedom and democracy” is a “universal value” we can take back from those who prefer a “fascist” government!

* * *

QUESTION OF THE DAY: If Joe Lieberman really wants to protect America and save us all from the terrorists, why is he sucking up to and supporting George Bush and the Repuglicans???

 * * *

“Code Red,” there is an imminent threat for the Repuglicans and George Bush, as evidenced by the Lieberman loss in Connecticut!  And when George Bush’s political security is at risk then call for a terrorist threat, no matter what the consequences!  “British police were planning to continue to run surveillance for at least another week to try to obtain more evidence, while American officials pressured them to arrest the suspects sooner.”
