Ray McGovern: Bush The Cheerleader

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Ray McGovern

When President George W. Bush was asked at his news conference last Wednesday whether we are winning in Iraq, he answered, "Absolutely; we're winning." The disingenuousness was almost enough to provoke sympathy for the beleaguered president as he lived through another bad week with further diminished credibility.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

It is unjust, bizarre, and ludicrous to reduce the death and dying in Iraq to a game of "winning" or "losing"! How does one claim victory when over 2700 American soldiers are dead, when 600,000 innocent Iraqis are dead, when children are left without a father or a mother! The war in Iraq is not a Sunday afternoon game of sport, it is a tragedy of inconsolable death and dying. When will this incompetent cabal of bullies, of madmen, realize that lives are being lost on that battlefield of terror and horror that they, George Bush, Dick Cheney, and the rest of the Bush team, unnecessarily created!

Of kids with problems traumatic
To instead focus on matters that
Are basically bureaucratic?

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT

Remember that Rove's last known diversion will be Saddam's death sentence, coming up in a few days. And expect the whole nine yards of orchestrated and choreographed media reviews of Saddam's evil deeds.

But remember, he isn't responsible for the estimated 600,000 Iraqis killed since the Bush invasion, nor is Saddam responsible for the nearly 3,000 GI deaths. Nor is he responsible for the hundreds of billions dollars that have been spent on a fiasco of a "war." Bush is.

Don't forget that when the Saddam sentencing media "pageant" begins.

He may have been a diabolical man, but there are others in this world. Some of them live within our shores.

It is time to put aside all the campaign rhetoric on which political party will keep Americans secure and review the facts.

The Republican image of strength on national security is actually an illusion based on tough talk, cover-up of serious mistakes, and wizardry used by campaign strategists. Republicans allege that keeping our country safe is their greatest strength -- actually, it is their greatest weakness. As a result, our nation's security is more vulnerable now than ever before. This will be illustrated as we review performance of the current Administration.

BuzzFlash Mailbag for October 31, 2006

BUZZFLASH MAILBAG

Subject: Kerry's comments

While I do think John Kerry speaks with his foot in his mouth, the president usually has both feet in his mouth and we hardly hear any media backlash.

For the wingers to scream what an insult it is to the soldiers for Kerry's remarks, I never heard a peep out of any of them when they insulted and demeaned every person that has ever served in the military with their despicable display of the bandage with the purple heart they seemed so proud to show off at the Republican convention.

MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,

When I see polls like this, I'm suspicious. Judges today are not independent, at least those appointed by the GOP. Bush would not be squatting in the White House if it weren't for partisan judges on the Supreme Court who got their payback. Even Scalia's son got a job. We've seen that those who have been appointed by the Republican Party keep giving back to the GOP. People are still brainwashed by the very word of judge. We've been brought up that way. At least, I'm using myself as an example, because before Bush was illegally put into the White House, I actually thought judges appointed to Federal Courts and the Supreme Court took their jobs seriously ... and, I was right, they do and they pay back those who put them in those jobs ... that's how serious this whole judge situation is.

On this the eve of All Souls Day, with all the "tricks" and no treats coming out of the Bush administration, we are living a constant negative state of Halloween! HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
