Another September 11th has been and gone. Flags were waved, tears were shed, and silence observed. Generals offered their assessments and politicians blustered. Across the political spectrum, we Americans continue to insist upon our unwavering support for the troops, from the right-wing call for continued funding of their work to the left-wing call to bring them home.

Since George W. Bush is completely ignoring the views of both the vast majority of American citizens and the majority of the members of Congress concerning the ending of the Iraq War, impeachment hearings should be started. Bush will not conform to democratic norms. He will not respect public opinion or democracy. There are plenty of reasons to hold immediate joint impeachment hearings for both Bush and Cheney.

DNC PRESS

Online tool allows Americans to urge members of Congress to Denounce Boehner's offensive remarks

Washington, DC - Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean today renewed his call for House Republican Leader John Boehner to apologize for his reprehensible and offensive comments trivializing the! sacrifices our brave men and women in uniform make for our country every day. Boehner's spokesperson has since tried to cover up the comments, saying that Representative Boehner was referring only to the monetary costs of the war in Iraq, but the transcript of the interview proves otherwise.

How stupid does little Bush think we are? The answer is: pretty damned stupid.

That's the only conclusion possible after hearing him try to claim that the winding down of his "surge" escalation of 30,000 additional troops represents a "new" strategy of reducing American troops in Iraq.

On the day of the General David ("ass kissing little chickens**t"---Adm Fallon, Commander of CENTCOM) Petraeus and Ambassador Ryan Crocker did their puppet show for Congress, my daughter, Carly, felt ill so we didn't get a chance to get there early enough to obtain one of the tickets for the miserly 37 seats allocated for the public in the hearing room.

In early 2004, after my second visit to Iraq, several peace organizations proposed solutions to the war in that country that examined the military, political, and economic aspects of the conflict. It was based on extensive involvement and visits with most of the warring parties -- religious, ethnic, social, "occupation" -- and, like the recommendations of the Iraq Study Group, factored in regional history and today's geopolitics.

I was thinking about becoming a Republican the other day.

No, really, I was! Ya know, the money's good. And you don't have to share. And you don't really have to care about the impact of what you do, or what people think of you. Rich, selfish, carefree. That's not such a bad life, is it?

Karl Rove originally set out to establish the Permanent Republican Majority (PRM), his version of The Thousand Year Reich. The combination of Bush's foreign military and domestic economic policies have likely put an end to any hope for the Georgites to achieve that goal in the foreseeable future. However, for a variety of reasons, a Permanent Republican Presidency (PRP) is very much achievable. Working for whomever the Republican nominee is (and I still think it will be Giuliani), Rove will remain heavily invested in achieving this goal.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

George Bush has now earned another title -- “The Revisionist” -- Doing to History What He Did to Iraq.” Bush’s version of history is a tad off the truth of it all!!! But then, what can you expect from a guy who has a real need to change the facts in order to try and garner support for his illegal war?
