What’s The News Across the Nation..

We have got the information
In a way we hope will amuse you
La da de da!
Ladies and gents, Bush-lovers reinvent the news!”

Here is a quick round up of the Christmas/Hannukah/Kwanzaa gift the Bush administration has been giving us this most joyous of seasons.

There is NO doubt that being delusional, insane and a compulsive liar are the ONLY qualities one needs to have in order to be in the Bush administration.

Truer words have never been spoken:

Even as these assholes exit the stage, they are still filling the air with their fart stink and bullshit – assuming that we are just going to believe the past 8 years was some kind of Golden Era of Enlightenment. I don’t even have to do snark – like Sarah Palin, the words of these 4 scumbags speak for themselves.

The Idiot-in-Chief

On December 23rd, our moronic president issued a pardon to Isaac Toussie, who was convicted for masterminding a multi-million dollar real estate scam in New York and making false statements to HUD. The pardon shocked and outraged lawmakers and homeowners, some of whom who are victims of the Toussies. “In a climate where foreclosure is at its highest in history . . . this guy who contributed to that foreclosure gets a pardon?” said one victim of Toussie.

On Wednesday, the very next day, Bush “revoked” the pardon. Turns out Toussie’s father contributed to $28,500 to the Republican National Committee. Legal scholars are in a quandary over whether a pardon can be revoked, and when exactly does the pardon take affect.

In attempting to explain the turnabout, Karl Turdface said “I think the information that was alluded to was the nature of the offense, the death of the offense, and the fact that it happened less than five years ago. Generally pardons and commutations, except in rare instances, are not granted within five years after the offense.”

First Toussie was convicted in 2003 – 5 years ago. But forgetting that statue of limitations, Karl sure has a short memory – Bush commuted Scooter Libby’s sentence just four months after he was convicted and before he served any time. At the time, Bush’s described the commutation has as an appropriate exercise of the power of the presidency.

No surprise – Bush gives a pardon to someone as despicable Marc Rich, the Clinton pardon the GOP will not let go of – but they are all silent now and trying make it look like it was a paperwork oversight.

Watch what you ask, you might get shot in the face

From The Casper Star-Tribune – Vice President and Chief Douchebag Dick Cheney expressed his bewilderment over his low approval numbers:

QUESTION: How do you explain your low approval rating?
CHENEY: I don’t have any idea. I don’t follow the polls.

In addition to his well-documented abuse of power, Cheney’s public disapproval ratings might have something to do with this – when told that two-thirds of Americans disapproved of the Iraq war, Cheney responded “so?” adding that he did not care what the American people thought.

Cheney is still holding out hope, however, that the polls will turn his way. He said recently, “I’m personally persuaded that this president and this administration will look very good 20 or 30 years down the road in light of what we’ve been able to accomplish.”

Give the teacher an apple

Our Miss Rice took time out her successful peacemaking efforts in the Middle East to talk to Rita Braver of CBS News

Q: Looking at the big picture of what’s the whole foreign policy of this Administration – you come out of the academic tradition so I think it’s fair to ask, what kind of grade do you give yourself and this Administration on foreign policy?

RICE: Oh, I don’t know. It depends on the subject. I’m sure that there are some that deserve an A-plus and some that deserve a lot less. … We’ve left a lot of good foundations.

Q: You know, you say that, but the Pew Global Attitudes Project released a new report very recently. On the very first page it says, “The U.S. image abroad is suffering almost everywhere.” … It has to be more than just a perception problem.

RICE: No. Rita, first of all, it depends on where you’re talking about. In two of the most populous countries, China and India, the United States is not just well regarded for its policies, but well regarded.

Rice went on to say “I think generations pretty soon are going to start to thank this president for what he’s done. This generation will,” Rice said. “Because I think the fact that we have really made foreign assistance not just an issue of giving humanitarian aid or giving money to poor people, but really insisting on good governance and fighting corruption,” she said. “I think the fact that this president has laid the groundwork for a Palestinian state, being the first president, as a matter of policy, to say that there should be one, and now, I think, laying the foundation that’s going to lead to that Palestinian state. I can go on and on.

I guess what is going on in Gaza right now is what Condi would call good groundwork.

The Murdering Wife doing her best Tammy Wynette impersonation

First lady Laura Bush says she disagrees with critics who say her husband’s presidency was a failure. (Hold the laughter)

In an interview aired Sunday on Fox News Sunday, Mrs. Bush says she knows her husband’s eight years in office was not a failure, and says she doesn’t feel as if she needs to respond to people who view it that way.

She says history will judge the two-term presidency of George W. Bush.

Mrs. Bush notes that under her husband’s watch, the nation has been kept safe from attack since Sept. 11 and that his administration toppled Saddam Hussein and liberated millions of people in Afghanistan and Iraq from oppressive governments. She also talked of her husband’s work to provide treatment for disease to millions of people in sub-Saharan Africa.

“I know it’s not, and so I don’t really feel like I need to respond to people that view it that way,” Mrs. Bush said in an interview that aired Sunday. “I think history will judge and we’ll see later.

Laura also blamed the media for misleading Americans about the death toll from Hurricane Katrina’s damage — that the overstated body count gave Americans the wrong impression about the Bush Administration’s handling of the tragedy.

Somehow only a murderer like Laura could think that 1,900 dead from Katrina would qualify the Bush Administration response as good, but 10,000, as originally reported would have made it a missed opportunity.

Move, over Marie Antoinette

UN Draft resolution XX on the right to food, approved on 24 November by a recorded vote of 180 in favor to 1 against (United States), with no abstentions, would have the Assembly reaffirm that hunger constitutes an outrage and a violation of human dignity, requiring the adoption of urgent measures at the national, regional and international level, for its elimination.

This was a non-binding, non-political resolution. It had no teeth – only some PR value. It would have cost nothing. All we had to do was say “aye.” Even Israel and Iran voted the same way. I cannot believe we actually said the “right to food” was not a basic right human right. I do not care what the other paragraphs in the resolution might have said – what can you possibly lose by saying everyone has the right to eat – in a non-binding resolution.

Let the entire Bush Administration eat cake.

The Ass-Kissing Media

It boils me that the media still finds reasons to like Bush, and continue to give him deference. This is a man that lead a government that has done nothing but lie and mislead the media for 8 years. The fact that any of them (except at Fox News, which is really Pravda all prettied up) still find the need to give Bush credit for anything shows they are are delusional as the people dishing out the lies.

Tonight on Hardball, Mark Halperin (who never ceases to amaze how completely delusional he really is) said there are positive things that Bush has done – mentioning the much maligned No Child Left Behind and the full of strings-attached AIDS relief in Africa. Halperin goes on to say that Bush has used the bully pulpit to raise public consciouness about life and he has shown the world that every being is precious.

I wish Halperin had said that directly into the eyes of family memebers of the 4,200+ dead soldiers and millions of dead Iraqis – all gone due to Bush’s deeply held belief on the preciousness of life. Same with the victims of Katrina.

You cannot make up shit like that – only Halperin can


Responses

  1. One day a true history of this awful time will be written. Hopefully future generations will read it and learn from our mistakes. Like mistake #1: not investigating, indicting and convicting these monsters. Because it isn’t going to happen, that’s why.

  2. I hadn’t heard of the UN vote about food and the U.S. voting against it.It’s all so typical of how far we’ve sunk as a nation.If there’s a law of Karma (I don’t have a clue if there is, or isn’t) but it there is, we’re going to get our asses kicked for our greed, selfishness and lack of compassion.

  3. Hi Cap;The food vote I hadn’t heard of either, but the cluster bomb vote that all nations except the US, Russia and China voted for is a similar example.We know what the White House thinks of in respect to human rights, humans don’t have any rights. That is why torture is condoned, privacy is not respected, and big brother reigns supreme.A few fanatics with a plan and some box cutters not only terrorized a nation, they won the war, for it has changed the lives of people in a country and it may very well be that the enemies of America had something to do with this economic collapse.How could people barely making their mortgage payments hope to continue when crude rose to $150 a barrel, raising the cost of everything along the food and transportation chain and utilities.?This garbage buckled the knees of the biggest manufacturing entities in the world.If the USA can overcome and achieve its former status it will be a miracle.

  4. this is a great post…you nailed it…21 days to go…

  5. That they even have to go on a rehab tour speaks volumes.And using history as a means of predicted vindication is just ridiculous. “Don’t judge my fuck-ups now, folks, take a look at them in 30 years and see how you feel.”

  6. As Pissed in NYC says, there will be no justice for the Bush cartel.Remember how reverent the press was when Nixon died?When the time comes, Bush will be given a glowing obituary by the same press he scorns.Military/Industrial/Media Complex, indeed.

  7. ouf! what a find your blog is! will be back for more. fine fine writing and most excellent view points! THANKS! x janelle

  8. P.S. I was watching Hairball out of the corner of my ear last night when I was on the computer.I heard snippets of Halperin’s delusional drivel and had to look up to see if I could believe my ears.How he could keep a straight face is beyond me. The man deserves an Emmy for acting.

  9. @pissed, learn from mistakes? What are you smoking? 😉 They’ll get away with it, and it’ll happen again. Oh well, eventually Canada will takeover, hopefully.

  10. ‘Mrs. Bush notes that under her husband’s watch, the nation has been kept safe from attack since Sept. 11″—Point #1: Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. WHO SAYS Bush had anything to do with the fact that no more planes were crashed into buildings?[Acourse these folks ignore anthrax and attacks overseas]. But why should Osama keep attacking us? Bush is doing a bang-up job destroying this country without outside help—–And Laura went on to say:”that his administration toppled Saddam Hussein and liberated millions of people in Afghanistan.”Point #2: Osama is still out there doin his thing. And the Taliban is roaring back to control Afghanistan.xxx xxx xxxYep. Bushie did a great job, all right.Just keep on deluding yourself, Laura.

  11. ‘Oh well, eventually Canada will takeover, hopefully.’Randal, you've stooged off Canuckistan's secret plan! How could you? Now we'll never get to sing 'Snowbacks Uber Alles' as one voice.;>)Personally, I view this rehab sideshow as the annoying sizzle on a rancid porterhouse.Perhaps they will 'get away' with their acts, after all America has been most reticent to prosecute these little 'policy difference' oopsies in the past, and with so many of the yeoman stewards of government up to their wattled necks in the shitpuddle screaming 'DON'T MAKE A WAVE!' in a lusty bipartisan fashion, the long-range forecast is 'same old same old'.But they'll probably never be able to leave the good old U.S.A for them furrin lands again, lest the inconvenient spectacle of a heathen show trial assert itself… so you'll likely have these perps close to home for the foreseeable future.;>)

  12. well, I doan know. I think Bush may have accomplished something worthwhile……… he was the first Prezteldynt to unite the nation to vote for a Black Liberal Intellectual in record numbers. That HAS to count for something!No Child Left Behind … geesNo Child Left with a Mind is more like it.

  13. As with all history, there will be the turd-polishers and the realists. We’ll all know and remember the truth about Bush; the turd-polishers will all bow at his graveside and make up lies. Ain’t that always the way?

  14. c’mon now, give chimpy some credit. not one–nope, not even one!–tsunami hit kansas or nebraska since chimpy took office. ….well, there was the economic tsunami, but no tsunamis with great big wet waves.

  15. What PiNYC said, but with a caveat. A true history will be written, but the question is who will read it if it ever gets published.

  16. Blogger darkblack said… ‘Oh well, eventually Canada will takeover, hopefully.’ Randal, you’ve stooged off Canuckistan’s secret plan! How could you? Now we’ll never get to sing ‘Snowbacks Uber Alles’ as one voice.You mean this?Canadian World Domination

  17. Et vous avez laissé le chat de la valise aussi, collaborateur.;>)
