MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,

How long should the Bush administration get away with their shenanigans by always claiming stupidity? We have to sue to get the papers of secret meetings by Cheney and information regarding 911. Bush resealed the papers of his father (shouldn't have been allowed to do this) George H. W. Bush, and President Reagan ... and even then, a group of partisan judges are able to stop that information from becoming public, or maybe it just gets shredded. Much of the regular government information to the public has been taken down from the Internet because of the Bush administration ... it's the public's right to know. The most secretive administration ever to supposedly work for the American people.

Ruth Lopez: Kerry Was Right

A BUZZFLASH READER CONTRIBUTION

Anyone who points out the Bush Administration's mean-spirited and self-serving treatment of our troops is quickly and loudly painted as anti-military. This is to stop the public from tuning into the sad reality that, for all their flag-waving, the Republicans' treatment of our troops is not much better than their treatment of Katrina victims.

DR. J'S SHORT SHOT
by Steven Jonas, MD, MPH

This morning, Ann Coulter, along with a steady stream of Republican heavyweights (and no Democrats) appeared on "Fox and Friends," the "fair and balanced" morning show of the Fox "News" Channel. She shared a couple of pieces of political wisdom with her audience that I thought might enlighten our readers about what she is really about (that is, if you need any further enlightening). First, she told us that the prime reason that the Republicans need to retain control of Congress was that only the Bush Administration could be trusted to secure our nation's security. This on the morning that the New York Times revealed that since March until Yesterday, the Department of Defense had up on the web a site about the dastardly Saddam Hussein that showed, among other things, how to make an atomic bomb. When asked how she would compare the Foley scandal with the Kerry scandal (sic), Ms. Coulter allowed that the former only concerned one single individual who needed help, while the latter concerned the whole of the Democratic Party, revealing how traitorous it is (well, you know those liberals). And there you have it, folks: the wisdom (sic, and sick) of Ann Coulter.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

"GEORGE W. BUSH, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: Imagine this. We're in the middle of a war on terror. And one of the most fundamental fights is in Iraq. And ... the Democrats have no plan for victory. They have no idea how to win." And now after three and a half years of continued fighting, and one failure after the other, it's painfully obvious, neither do you, George Bush! Seems to me you started this fight in Iraq, didn't finish the one in Afghanistan, and you certainly have not accomplished the mission!

1//Arab News, Saudi Arabia-DON'T MISS THE BOAT, DABBAGH TELLS CHINESE INVESTORS

China should invest in Saudi Arabia's petrochemical sector or risk becoming a victim of the Gulf nation's bid to use its energy reserves to become an industry leader. "Don't' miss the boat," Amr Al-Dabbagh, governor of the Saudi Arabian General Investment Authority (SAGIA), told Chinese investors at the closing session of the CEO Forum here yesterday. His speech on "Beyond the intent to performance" was a strong message to over 400 top global CEOs who took part in the event organized by Business Week. ... The Kingdom hopes to draw $50 billion of foreign cash into the petrochemical industry over the next 15 to 20 years as part of a campaign to make it one of the top three countries in the sector. China's vast market and export-oriented manufacturing industries makes it a perfect partner for Saudi companies with their cheap energy and feedstock. "It makes economic sense for Chinese firms to process petrochemicals in Saudi Arabia instead of shipping energy and raw materials home to do it there," Dabbagh said. The Kingdom aims to grab 15 percent of the global market in plastics by 2020 and boost ethylene output to 14 million tons by 2010 from under seven million tons at present. "China is a global player in finished plastic products and the Kingdom has an ongoing expansion program in this sector," Dabbagh said. "So instead of the Chinese watching their market share globally shrinking, they would be better off being part of the action," he added.

NEWS RELEASE

DNC: Rumsfeld and Cheney Stay The Course

Washington, DC - Yesterday during an interview with the Associated Press, President Bush said he "wants Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and Vice President Dick Cheney to remain in his administration until the end of his presidency, extending a job guarantee to two of the most-criticized members of his team." [AP, 11/1/06] Despite their numerous faulty predictions and assertions, President Bush remains completely loyal to two architects of his failed Iraq policy.
