On April 9, James Zogby, President of the Arab American Institute, published his weekly column Washington Watch, entitled "Americans Should Defend Speaker Pelosi's Mission."

He said: "Her critics have been unfair, missing the significance and timeliness of her mission." He pointed out among other things: "In addition to her official meetings, the visit was most notable for its positive contribution to U.S. public diplomacy, so desperately needed in the Arab world. . . . Not everyone was happy, however. Vice President Cheney, calling from an undisclosed location into the Rush Limbaugh show, had harsh words for Speaker Pelosi's visit. While his criticism and that of conservatives may be understood as sour grapes, the failure of liberals and the mainstream media to come to the Speaker's defense or to understand the importance of Speaker Pelosi's goodwill mission is inexcusable."



After reading this article, one could almost believe that the Bush regime are all entirely innocent, and they should all be wearing white ... not only because they were fooled into hiring Kerik. tsk. tsk. The same way Bush was fooled into invading Iraq and the same way Bush was fooled into standing around while New Orleans drowned, and the same way bin Laden has escaped being caught, or the Anthrax killer, or what about that male prostitute that was given White House clearance and a fake name, along with a fake job as a White House correspondent, and we would see Bush calling on him by name, (that incident and many others just seem to disappear over the horizon, and nothing is ever heard of them again).

Do not refer to the George Bush Library as a library. A library is a repository of records and a resource for scholarship. The Bush institution has no intention whatsoever of being a library. It is intended to be a propaganda mill. And it will be one.

Congressman Danny Davis (D-IL) says he firmly believes President George W. Bush has committed serious impeachable crimes and abuses of power, but says "at this time" he supports a decision by the House Democratic Caucus to put impeachment aside in the interest of helping to elect a Democratic Congress and a Democratic president in 2008.


"Party-issued laptops now a White House headache" A headache?? Sounds more like aiding and abetting criminal activity to me! "... evidence suggests the RNC e-mail system was used for political and government policy matters in violation of federal record preservation and disclosure rules ... Waxman told the Los Angeles Times in a statement that a separate 'e-mail system for high-ranking White House officials would raise serious questions about violations of the Presidential Records Act,' which requires the preservation and ultimate disclosure of e-mails about official government business." And, wouldn't you know, Karl Rove is involved. "When Karl Rove and his top deputies arrived at the White House in 2001, the Republican National Committee provided them with laptop computers and other communication devices to be used ..." And then there's this, The system was created with the best intentions," said former Assistant White House Press Secretary Adam Levine ... But, he added, "the road to hell is paved with good intentions."

There are two Bush administrations
Whenever push may come to shove:
The dirty stuff's kept on GOP.com
The clean stuff's on whitehouse.gov.
