BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

Obviously George has learned a thing or two from Poppy! "George W. Bush learned at least one lesson from his father: You want your federal prosecutors to be team players who will throw a political elbow or two when the White House needs some help ... George Bush is moving to ensure that he won't be sabotaged by ... independent-minded prosecutors ... the White House approved the firing of seven U.S. attorneys at the end of 2006 after the Justice Department identified them as insufficiently supportive of the President's policies." Key words here being "insufficiently supportive of the president's policies"! Would that include illegal policies?

Republicans opposing the passage of the Employee Free Choice Act are lying up a storm to swing public opinion against the proposed law. Their primary attack claim is that the bill denies workers a free, fair election by secret ballot. Unfortunately, there is nothing free or fair about the current system of voting on unionization. The law is tilted heavily in favor of company power and against the workers.

At this point in his sorry presidency
When his prospects are so bleak
He’d rather be yelled at by protesters
In a language he doesn’t speak.

"They hate our freedoms. They hate the fact that we hold each individual -- we dignify each individual. We believe in the dignity of every person." Yessirree, just ask American John Walker Lindh, Australian David Hicks, and a few other unnamed POWs, ask the prisoners at Guantanamo Bay Cuba, how much "each individual" was dignified after George Bush, the "decider," decided to change the Geneva Conventions regarding torture and abuse!!!

Vindication has been achieved this week as our lawyers and a few diligent Denver reporters learned many interesting facts about our lawsuit. Our allegations in the lawsuit have been confirmed, and the White House has been caught in a lie.
