Will Durst: Don't Stay the Course

Written by

If you need more proof that President George Bush is as clueless as a goldfish on a leash in a space shuttle, you obviously didn't see him in all his counter-intuitive glory this week adamantly refuting the slogan of "staying the course" while keeping its policy EXACTLY THE SAME. That's right, George Bush is cutting and running from "stay the course." This doesn't mean he's a Defeatlican, though. Because “we are winning in Iraq and will continue to win." And you'd better hope we do, because if this is winning, you really REALLY don't want to see what losing looks like.

Many pundits are comparing the expected Democratic victory in the upcoming election to the Newt Gingrich-led Republican triumph of 1994, an election in which the GOP gained 52 House seats and ended 40 years of Democratic majority in that chamber.

MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,

Yes, Bush and his comrades just pitch it out and see what sticks, and they run with that. Then they have the audacity to call that leadership. I think the American people are well above this leadership in DC and have come to realize that whatever they say . . . is either distorted, unable to prove, or out and out lies to hide what they are really doing or what they have already done, or they lie because that's what they do, even when they don't have to.

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS

Laura for President? Okay, maybe not, but there is little doubt that she remains just about the only bright spot for the entire Republican Party these days. Everyone from the current president to the lowliest backbencher in Congress is feeling the heat. The GOP terror alert level has been raised to its highest levels to date in a panic-stricken chaos.

BuzzFlash Mailbag for October 27, 2006

BUZZFLASH MAILBAG

Subject: "It's The War, Stupid"

Hi BuzzFlash Readers,

Ok DNC and all you Democratic Voters; notice how everybody is talking 24/7 on television about everything except - - - IRAQ?

That's exactly what the RNC is trying to make us do because they do not want to talk about the war.

Instead we are talking about Michael Fox, Rush LimBORE, 700 mile UNfunded wall for a 2000+ mile border, etc, etc, etc.

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS

George Bush doesn't know when Iraq will be able to defend itself. He doesn't even know when Iraq might be able to defend itself. But the Iraqi Prime Minister has a pretty good idea: six months, provided America actually fulfills its commitment to rebuilding the nation it toppled more than two years ago.

Amy Branham: My Flag

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION

We all know the history of the American flag. We know its symbology. White signifies purity and innocence; red signifies valor and bravery; and blue signifies vigilance, perseverance and justice. Each star represents one of the states in the Union.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

It's one thing to make a profit in a capitalistic society, but quite another when it becomes highway robbery! "The ExxonMobil Corporation reported today that it earned $10.49 billion in the third quarter, the second largest quarterly profit ever posted by a publicly traded American company. The largest on record was also reported by ExxonMobil - $10.71 billion in the fourth quarter of 2005." It makes you wonder exactly who is the enemy when the things you need for the necessities of daily life are priced so high as to allow a single corporation billions in profits and in such a short time! No wonder they can afford to buy a presidency and his entire administration!
