Afraid of a press conference, his video memento
Turned up on YouTube as his half-assed lo siento.
His words rang hollow, so there's no need to praise a
Bit of spin from El Newto; he's just a gorda cabeza.

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT
Some Republicans sure hate Muslims. We all remember Rep. Virgil Goode (R-VA) criticizing incoming congressman Keith Ellison - the first Muslim member of Congress - for wanting to use the Koran during an unofficial part of his swearing-in ceremony. But Texas State Sen. Dan Patrick has taken ignorance to a new level.
MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi establishing a shadow presidency? What a joke. Nothing like advertising your own incompetency to the public. The worst thing about this WP report is that it is so ill informed. (cough and spit) Why would Pelosi try to establish another shadow presidency, when we've had a secret and shadowy one under the Bush/Cheney GOP for years, already?

Over a year ago, I wrote an article for Harvard's journalism journal Nieman Reports complaining about deeply flawed media coverage of credit and debt issues in America.
A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS
After blasting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's trip to Syria, the White House has once again been caught in a web of hypocrisy. Many top Republicans - including the Bush Administration itself - have long worked with Syria without such criticism.
BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE
[BuzzFlash Note: Barbara's Buzz will skip Friday, to return Monday.]
Why was Dick Cheney hiding in the bushes during George Bush's press conference??? Was this just another "undisclosed location" or was there something more sinister involved? Was he making certain Bush delivered the "riot act" to Congress??? Was it just a reminder that the "master-mind" was close by or was he just supporting a bad political move? Only the "shadow" president knows for sure!!! "HENRY: With Vice President Dick Cheney looking on from behind a shrub, the president lambasted Congress for going on spring break before delivering war funding bills which Democrats insist will require that U.S. troops start leaving Iraq."
The biggest problem confronting Hillary
Is no matter what she may do
All the connections & money in the world
Can't make her someone new.
A BUZZFLASH INTERVIEW
Really, when they complained that we had not fought the Vietnam War forcefully enough, they didn’t mean because we didn’t put enough forces in. They didn’t blame Johnson or the Pentagon. They blamed the left. They blamed the counterculture. They said that American culture had been feminized. ... From their point of view, what happened abroad was really a reflection of what was happening here at home. And we have the same language now, particularly from Cheney, but from Bush as well. ... Their own fears of moral weakness are being played out on this international scale.
