Amy Branham: Issues

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Amy Branham

I'm tired of hearing about the next Presidential election already. I'm tired of hearing who has raised how much money and I'm really sick and tired of hearing about Hillary and Obama, Romney and Giuliani. I don't give a damn how much Edwards spends on a hair cut. I don't care how many wives Giuliani has had, and I really am not interested in Romney's religion or anything about Hillary. Frankly, I'm tired of the Bush/Clinton/Bush cycle and hope with every fiber of my being that we get out of that this election term.

CNN ignored evidence of GOP obstructionism, allowed McConnell to attack Dems. Wolf Blitzer, Dana Bash, et al. at CNN have been “suck-ups” to the Repuglicans ever since George Bush managed by way of the Supreme Court to steal the office of the presidency!  Their unadulterated worship of all things Repuglican has been obvious for some time now!  Blitzer, Bash, and their ilk can only be categorized as info-taint-ment programming.

A long threatened probe for perjury

Than the president's recent surgery.

A BUZZFLASH INTERVIEW

Politics has always been about fantasy. Politics, at its core, is about imagining what sort of a future world we want, or a past world we'd like to go back to.

Last week, a media advisory from "The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer" announced a new series of interviews on the PBS show that will address "what Iraq might look like when the U.S. military leaves."

A few days later, Time magazine published a cover story titled "Iraq: What will happen when we leave." But it turns out, what will happen when we leave is that we won't leave.

A BUZZFLASH EDITORIAL

We read with keen interest the great sorrow and lamentation about an NBA referee who was allegedly discovered to be betting on league games.

As the Chicago Tribune reported in its July 25 editorial entitled "A flagrant foul on the NBA":

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

As long as “they” continue to kill our troops “over there,” we won’t have any troops left to kill them when they do come here!  The “young Repuglicans” certainly aren’t volunteering for the military!!!  This “magnate” called Iraq is drawing more and more American troops, and more and more American troops are dying every day!  None of these Repuglican “catchy phrases” and/or justifications for George Bush’s illegal, unnecessary war in Iraq have ever made any sense!!!  Actually, they generally have the opposite effect!
