trying to update the website stay tuned
saw this today. This is exclusively for those low effort Thinking Republicans out there
Find it right here!
So the Bush Library opened today. 500,000,000 ( 500 million) spent on this could have been spent on injured soldiers returning from the war of choice based on lies and fear. What a guy
The site has pretty much gone static Not much left to say. I intend to clean up the site change a few things and just let it rest. 10th anniversary of the Invasion..... GOP NEVER AGAIN
All I am hearing this morning is how the war is over. All I feel is anger. Where is our war hero??? Cheney & Bush should be in a prison. Now the party of hate wants to put another Chickenhawk fool in office.
might as well link to the BUSH wiki site. More info than I could ever provide! Find it right here!
well this beats all How in the heck did I miss the
The doll should be shown in action, chasing.......tail, cocaine, alcohol and his Father's shadow what a loser! bet he owns one of these! Bet he's drunk! On the Right hand of god.....BWAHAHAHAHA
They did not get the face right it needs either that smartass smirk that he has worn all his life or wide eyed and thinking shit I don't know WTF I am doing and America is under attack...think back folks 9-11-2001 about 9:05 A.M. Oh well you can only do so much with plastic. kind of like the leadership of the GOP
Another Memorial day another opportunity to reflect on our politicians. Why not staff the military so that EVERYONE gets to go you know everyone of age including especially including the politicians children, their Grandchildren their Nieces, their Nephews. If they ( Chickenhawk liars) want to pull the trigger and invade a country to fight for oil or fight for a theory or fight for their legacy or fight for their ego or because they want to pretend they are macho
Bush is crawling back into the public light. Listening to NPR today hearing the stories of parents losing their children to war. A war based on a lie. I will always believe this war of choice was calculated to make this awful person look like a great decisive leader. Over 4000 dead to make him appear to be a heavy weight President.
The last year and half has seen the continued rise of the Reich wing ...The crazies on the right being further sucked in by the evil doings of conservative Republicans. I find it disturbing that they cry about Health Reform "how are we going to pay for it?" Where were all these cries when wars were waged using lies and a credit card. In Florida I have noticed that Republicans use the economic boom to lower taxes then when an economic collapse or recession comes along they cry about lack of money and use the recession as a reason to cut government especially public schools. Republicans have never seen a recession they did not love. They have the ultimate goal of destroying government and along with it the middle class.
I just wanted to post a great quote by Chris Matthews of Hardball. The group in the United States that most resembles the Taliban ironically is the Religious Right got to love it and the sad part is if they had their way our country would have moral squads, stoning and flogging. Find it right here! The great quote is in the last 10 seconds of the clip.
Obama wins the Nobel Peace Prize. I think that is OK. I do however think that once again the world is saying America you are back!!!!! Please, never again give the world a leader the likes of George W. Bush. I think the selection was definitely a repudiation of the awful Bush Administration. Watch the Reich wings nuts go crazy with this They just don't get it...The crazy conservatives have nothing to offer.
It is difficult to keep the anti Bush rhetoric up. While hate can burn intense it is hard to sustain. I do feel my rage/indignation turn away from Bush and more towards the wing nuts. The ones that listen to Reich wing radio or to their ultra conservative/ hellfire and brimstone Preachers or Ministers. These conservative folks that seem to comprise the Republican party seem comprised of the over religious and/or undereducated. I know that is simplistic and probably not entirely accurate but it is the way I see that party. They then find themselves on the national Mall protesting ...what? deficits, socialism, maybe the color of the President's skin. I don't know. I just ask where was all this outrage when George was using lies to start the trillion dollar war? Why all this feigned outrage over giving everyone health coverage? I feel kind of sad for our Country.
FWIW here is a link to the Atlantic. Providing more on the Bush legacy Find it right here!
We have heard nothing from our ex president. I wonder if the scope of the malfeasance is dawning on him? There is still a possibility of investigations but I wonder if perhaps he is starting to realize that he surrounded himself with the worst of the worst. Advisors hell bent on an agenda that went terribly wrong. Could George just be plain embarrassed? I wonder if even he is thinking why are all these people outraged over giving everyone health coverage.. Where were they when I was approving torture and a war based on lies. What a screwed up country.
Paul Krugman weighs in on the Fiscal-legacy of our ex President. Find it right here! WAR and TAX CUTS
Patrick Leahy is holding up aid to Mexico because of Human Rights violations. He is accusing them of torture. Patrick hate to give you the news but.....WE TORTURE!!!!! If we can do they can do it.
More on detainee abuse from Adm. Mike Mullen Find it right here! The fearful administration was behind all this right up to the very top half dozen chicken hawks. Making America proud. The shining star.
Think about it, the Obama administration most likely does not want an investigation of the Bush Administration because it would further divide the country. HOWEVER if the roles were reversed and there was even the slightest malfeasance on the part of the Obama Administration you bet the Repugs would be pounding their collective fists on the table demanding blood because they do not care about our country. OBAMA go after them, slap the smirks off the faces of Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Yoo, Adington, Gonzales. They all put personal gain or belief or agenda ahead of the country. Like the Repugs wanting Obama to fail on healthcare because it would be a personal blow to Obama
listening to Fresh Air tonight I heard for the first time about the Dasht-e-Leili massacre in Afghanistan. The killing of thousands of Taliban, perhaps with U.S. knowledge. The Bush Administration may have participated in a cover-up. People (Republicans) would be so inclined to say so?! It all goes back to America being the beacon of freedom and honor . Fresh Air story Find it right here! A web article on the massacre Find it right here!. The examples of dishonoring America by the worst administration keep coming.
President Obama... please, please, please investigate this band of criminals. The awful administration of Death, Debt and Deceit. They dishonored America's good name.
So FINALLY the New York Times is calling for what the average, informed, progressive American has been demanding for years...INVESTIGATE the AWFUL, FEARFUL, WORST ADMINISTRATION. Investigate Investigate Investigate!!!! I wonder if there will be a inverse relationship to the bigger the chickenhawk the more whimpering, whining and carrying on that will occur. Find it right here! Let's see what Bush, Cheney, Yoo, Adington, Gonzales, Wolfowitz, Rumsfeld and all the others knew, discussed and formulated. Here is the federal report on the Bush's Surveillance Program Find it right here! A 43 page PDF is there as well
I think something needs to be learned. I think that Bush actually could have addressed the American people in the months after 9/11 and said we need to bend the rules, this is what we want to do and we want your permission. I think the public would have gone for it with OVERSIGHT!!!! lessons need to be taught and learned.
This is quite a crew to be calling Sotomayor a racist or even implying racial bias Old White Men
The GOP The small regional party of the south. The party of the over religious and/or the under educated.
I was on Huffingtonpost and saw an article "George W. Bush Bashing Still Politically Potent" Find it right here! While reading it I found a link to The Center for Public Integrity A compendium of Bush Administration failures (128 and counting). Find it right here!
George is going to the town of Woodward, Oklahoma tomorrow to celebrate the 4th of July with the town. The father of a fallen soldier has something to say about George and his visit.
Find it right here! Original article ...Find it right here!
Once again I refer to this gem posted earlier in my rant but I like to kick it back up to the top now and then because to me it says it all.....A post by Tom Cleaver.
Who will be left to run from the small southern regional party of the over religious and under educated in 2012??? Maybe this was the best they had!!
So the republicans think Obama is being soft on Iran. They call him a cream puff and weak. Let us remind ourselves of the record the Republicans have in regards to International relations. George puffing out his chest, rotating his arms forward to give the illusion of ready to fight and then proclaiming the "axis of evil " North Korea, Iran and Iraq. That was the high point everything else just didn't work out so well after that. While we went to war for lies, North Korea produced a few nuclear bombs. Iran elected a hardliner and started down the road to go nuclear. We all know how Iraq is turning out. Good job George! You used fear and war mongering very well. It is indeed, the one thing you are a success at! I think George Bush, Dick Cheney and the rest of the regional minority party should just shut up, go to church and pray for our country. Also they should be ready to take another loss in 2010. By the way what is it with the Republicans who preach about the sanctity of marriage...Senator Ensign, Senator Vitter shall I go on??? It seems like the louder they decry everyone else's shortcomings and tell everyone else how to live their life the more skeletons lurk in their own proverbial closet. 4 Days Later and we can add another "holier than thou" to the list of disgraced Republicans....Mark Sanford
Old white men who think they can just say anything and it will be so. The old white men are dying off or being outed.
Russia wants to reduce nukes...want to bet the Republicans will start the fear mongering and talking about how negotiation is akin to capitulation. Republicans....the Southern Minority party of the over religious and under educated. Find it right here!
So Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has "won" the Iranian election. This sounds so familiar. Once again an evil party cheats and installs their hateful, fear mongering representative. Sound familiar??????? Wield, that fear sir, spew the nonsense that you are known for because maybe just maybe your country has to endure stupid and inane for another for years like we had to endure our own jackass for those 8 years. Maybe a country has to reach the deepest of lows before they demand change. Obama may not be getting everything right but it has been such a breath of fresh air to have a leader who is respectful, does not utilize fear mongering, is thoughtful and reflective. Maybe one day soon you will have such a leader. One can HOPE!
More on the legacy of the worst of the worst....The sea of debt find it right here! and from Daily kos
Torture pushed by the private contractors. Torture pushed by private contractors hired by and working for the Bush administration. Torture pushed by private contractors that did not know what they were doing. HEY that sounds just like the fearful administration inside and out and top to bottom. "They didn't know what they were doing" Find it right here! Just more confirmation that the fearful administration could not do one thing right and that the mantra "privatization is the salvation of government" is another example of how wrong and awful the Republican platform is, was and will always be.
The Bush Administration....corporate America's best friend. Not a single anti trust action during the 8 years of awfulness!!! They were busy with wars started by lies. Busy with torture you know "American values" Find it right here! and of course how well everything has worked out for the US economy!
Alzheimer's............ Did George W Bush waste 8 years with his lack of vision and monolithic ideology? He saved the stem cells. He doubted science. Did he do anything to advance the study of Alzheimer's???? Just asking (as maybe I missed something) Here is a small piece on Alzheimer's on NPR this morning. Find It Right Here! This will be part of his legacy for better or worse. His awful legacy!

There is no telling how this swine flu outbreak will end...pandemic...maybe. One thing is clear, I cannot blame this on stupid and his administration. I am just so thankful that the jackass is not in charge with all his frat buddies and campaign donors managing the government!!!!!! Good Luck Barack Obama
Just more evidence for all those Republican lovers out there that the fearful administration and Riech wing nuts are pathological liars. A FEW BAD APPLES!!! Now we know what we already knew that chickenhawks would rather blame detainee abuse on our fearless and outstanding military personnel than own up to it. Republicans...the brand of shame! Find it right here!
"We have been through a dark and painful chapter in our history" Obama was talking about the sanctioning of torture. Find it right here! but of course I feel the years 2001 - 2008 was the dark and painful chapter of American history! Don't prosecute those following orders but please, prosecute those that formulated the policy.
We spent 8 years with an Administration more concerned about the welfare of stem cells, private mercenaries, spreading democracy (that worked out well) and the rich. While the whole world wasted.. Stupid, denied scientific fact of global warming. So Antarctic Ice is melting and 8 years were lost. Find it right here! or Right here! Thanks George...You're a real hero!!! The Republican core....over religious and under educated
Spanish court looking at torture by the Bush Administration...perhaps, eventually we could see some trials. Find it right here! Wouldn't it be great to see justice served!
Today, with the Executive Order I am about
to sign, we will bring the change that so many scientists and researchers;
doctors and innovators; patients and loved ones have hoped for, and fought for,
these past eight years: we will lift the ban on federal funding for promising
embryonic stem cell research
I am also signing a Presidential Memorandum directing the head of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy to develop a strategy for restoring scientific integrity to government decision making. To ensure that in this new Administration, we base our public policies on the soundest science; that we appoint scientific advisors based on their credentials and experience, not their politics or ideology. Find it right here!
Go Obama!!! 8 years of a fearful Administration that put ideology ahead of the possibility of curing dreadful diseases.
The Republican core (over religious and under educated) are going to be screaming. there are consequences to losing elections
In yet another example of how awful the fearful Bush Administration was in siding with Big Business... in this case liability of pharmaceutical companies.
Supporting Wyeth in the Supreme Court was the Bush administration, which in a sharp break with decades of FDA policy, is now siding with the pharmaceutical industry. Justice Ginsburg asked why the administration has changed positions, but got no answer from Deputy Solicitor General Edwin Kneedler. The NPR story .....Find it right here!
The Bush Administration in one instance after another siding with big business and disrespecting the common people. I am sure they stacked the SEC and Bond rating agencies as well that has now put us into the "Bush Recession"
So our EX fearful leader made a "jokey" visit to Elliot's hardware "looking for a job" Find it right here! Well all I can say is Elliot's hardware should be damn glad this guy was not serious because he has run every other venture including our country into the proverbial ground! once again I refer to this.................... gem posted earlier in my rant but I like to kick it back up to the top now and then because to me it says it all.....A post by Tom Cleaver.......
The Republicans are all up in arms about the Stimulus Bill. Where were they during the 8 years of George Bush??? George bush...starting wars and cutting taxes for the rich...quite a strategy!!!! When he was running huge deficits...not a peep from these same people. The best thing that can happen to Republicans is another huge loss at the polls in 2010
Republicans want Iraq to succeed and America to fail.....I found this post on dailykos good. Find it right here!
The worst of the worst administrations that keeps on giving...Missing weapons, AGAIN!! Maybe Michael Brown or some Bush campaign donor or fraternity buddy of George was in charge of this Find it right here! So now our children over there are going to be shot at by our own weapons....
I am so proud of Obama for reaching out to the Muslim world and using the word LISTEN!!! The strutting, kick ass, fearful leader NEVER would have done this. It would have been seen as weak and we all know fearful leader was never weak...well maybe weak minded. The Republicans will be all over this spewing negativity. To me it is absolutely the right thing to be doing!!! We will never resolve our differences with bullets. Obama's first interview...with Saudi TV station al-Arabiya Find it right here! The actual interview is Right here!
I heard a story on NPR about how Global Warming is pretty much beyond the point where we can reverse it. Not sure losing 8 years would have made much difference but I wonder if God told him....not to worry about it. Remember he was yapping about how making adjustments to limit emissions WOULD HURT THE ECONOMY glad the economy got through his administration unhurt.....thanks George. Find it right here! Nope not his fault.
The fearful EX administration makes it difficult to let go of this website/rant. A hysterical Bush speechwriter Marc Thiessen proclaiming the end of life as we know it. I thought these guys just went on Republican welfare via think tanks after they became unemployed. He needs to just go away!!!! This interview was akin to screaming fire in a crowded theater when there is none. This is another example of awful tactics of the Republicans. The Audio Interview from the BBC... Find it right here! not sure how long this audio will be accessible. The story from the Post Find it right here!
Just back from DC late tonight. How wonderful it is to have a new President! Time for this site to go into mothballs and time to move on! Here is a great satellite shot of the event Find it right here! I was in the mass right in front of the Washington Memorial.
NPR has another story on the Bush Legacy. In this story it seems NPR is giving Bush wiggle room casting much of the failure of this administration on Cheney. I don't buy it. Fearful leader ultimately should be held responsible for all the failures. Dick is thinking "mission accomplished" and George is thinking "WTF happened" They are both real heroes. Find it right here!
Well it seems the coalition is starting to reveal their true feelings now that the fearful administration is folding. The question is why wait until the final few days to call a spade a spade. Smarter and more experienced folks thought terrorism should be placed under the name of criminal activity or breaking the law committed by criminals or law breakers rather than a war. The British had years of experience dealing with Northern Ireland. Fearful leader never listened. He liked using the words war on terror, wanted dead or alive, bring it on, evildoers and crusade. Never mind that by using the phrase war on terror that in itself could be used as a galvanizer for all sorts of the discontented. From David Miliband....Find it right here!
How did I miss that the U.S. had found a 14 year old to be among the worst of the worst! Find it right here! George and Dick and Alberto and Don are real heroes. I need to tell some of the 14 year olds I teach and see at my school how fortunate they are not to be imprisoned and tortured by Americans with values!
So Gaza continues to be dismantled and destroyed...I wonder how many innocents have been killed mean while there is just SILENCE from our fearful administration... as long as evil doers are being killed, collateral damage is acceptable. I am sure, George, our swaggering, strutting cowboy is just shrugging.
So fearful leader is giving his farewell speech Thursday night. Will anyone shed a tear of sadness?
What is this all about!!! Bush has no legacy to speak of in Africa in spite of his work to combat AIDS on that continent...probably sour grapes or a reporter with an axe to grind! Find it right here! The man is desperate for a legacy on something.
Bush just does not get it. There are many things I would like to say in regards to his LAST news conference... For those interested, here is the transcript from the news conference. Find it right here! I just have to add the "take" on his last news conference by BarbinMD from DailyKos Find it right here!
I noticed yesterday that during the practice Inauguration, they said the name George Walker Bush but for the incoming President, they said Barack H. Obama. This disappoints me. I do not know who is making that decision but I am proud we have such a smart man with roots in Africa and upbringing in Indonesia. I think it speaks volumes that America elected this man at this time. With conservatives so fearful of anyone with any inkling of anything Middle Eastern-ness. I say, go for it. Say it loud and say it proudly and let's see if we can begin the healing of these very large wounds that have been inflicted on our world. For a brief audio story on the practice session Find it right here!
People are starting to apply the tag "The Bush Recession" to the current economic downturn. The downturn will most likely last awhile into Obama's first term maybe longer. To go right along with this, a front page diary on DailyKos by Meteor Blades. He writes...Bush managed slightly less than 3 million (net) jobs created during his eight years in office. That's 375,000 jobs a year, the most pitiful record since 1939 when the Bureau of Labor Statistics started collecting the numbers. In the past 64 years, net job creation when Democrats were President totaled 57.5 million jobs. When a Republicans were, net job creation totaled 36.2 million jobs. But even that stark difference doesn't show the the whole picture. Republicans held the Presidency for 36 of those years, meaning they accounted for an average of just over 1 million jobs generated per year. The Democrats for just over 2 million jobs a year. That's right, average annual job creation under Democratic presidencies since 1944 has been twice as good as under Republicans. Is this correlation mere coincidence? Find it right here! Let's hope 10 years from now we are NOT referring to this downturn as Great Depression 2.0
I guess even Bush probably figured this would not be helpful, considering the state he has left the country and our world. He has been very busy trying to spin his legacy. No last minute drive by shooting on Iran. Find it right here!
From CBS Sunday Morning Bush legacy, History's First Draft...Find it right here!
I was listening to a story on NPR today and the person being interviewed was from a "think tank" and had a hint of arrogance in his voice. I looked up Think Tanks and Institutes here is something that could be informative and at least provide frame of reference the next time you hear an expert yammering on and on. From Wikipedia... Find it right here!
The opinion pieces on the Bush Legacy are continuing to come Find it right here! and Find it right here!
From a post on the front page of DailyKos by SusanG
Our nation, under Bush:
WASHINGTON—The United States and its partners have shortchanged Afghanistan by focusing on short-term goals pursued without a cohesive strategy or a clear understanding of the way the poor, decentralized country works, an independent study concludes.
Here's what's striking about this statement: You can substitute nearly any issue handled by the Bush administration and this paragraph pretty much sums up everything that's gone wrong. Try it:
"The United States has shortchanged by focusing on short-term goals pursued without a cohesive strategy or a clear understanding of how works."
Emergency preparedness. Energy policy. Education. Environment. (And those are just the E's.) A link to the diary. Find it right here!
To go right along with the legacy stories on NPR today, Fresh Air had a story on the Administration and its use of TORTURE. Having just finished listening to Fresh Air, this turned out to be a VERY compelling interview with Philippe Sands (author of Torture Team) and his thoughts on the possibility of members of the fearful administration being tried in International courts of law for violations of the Geneva Convention and violation of other International Laws. Definitely worth a listen! Find it right here!
NPR had a segment today on the Bush legacy. NPR will probably play nice and be very even handed....unlike this writer. ANYWAY from Morning Edition Find it right here! and from All Things Considered Find it right here!
With 2 weeks left in his administration they are trying to reverse 8 years of neglect...another republican strategy. Whatever, give him some kind of credit for doing the right thing and HELPING the planet. Find it right here!
CRAP, I think we are in deep shit. The Nobel winner in Economics is saying America is headed down the toilet. Find it right here! I hate when they use the word depression.
To go right along with the PDF below I have another from The La Follette School of Public Affairs. this working paper discusses the trend towards making a government more aligned to the elected party's image. Got to love the statements on page 8...Basically, recommendations to George in 2001 by the Heritage Foundation "Political appointees, personally loyal to the President and fully committed to his policy agenda, are essential to his success". Also on page 8..... .The selection of appointees should be "based on loyalty first and expertise second, and that the whole governmental apparatus must be managed from this perspective" I think you should link to this and at a minimum read page 8. What we have here is an incompetent President appointing equally incompetent but nevertheless loyal people to governmental positions...can you say Alberto Gonzales or Michael Brown. Oh I know there are many more....many, many, many more Find it right here!
I would be remiss if I did not include a link to the little online booklet from the White House that details the accomplishments of the Bush administration Find it right here! It is a 52 page PDF....enjoy!
Credit to Jed L on DailyKos for this piece. Though I know I have talked about George's refusal to call the economic situation a recession (3-14-08) I know it is Dailykos...I drank their kool aid a couple years ago. However a video is video! Find it right here!
He is on top of this...He is a hero. Just empty rhetoric Find it right here! Got to love the statement "By spending its resources on rocket launchers instead of roads and schools, Hamas has demonstrated that it has no intention of serving the Palestinian people" Damn the Hamas. No wonder George hates them!!!!! They took a page right out of the fearful administration playbook....spend your money on weaponry not on roads or schools.
Thank you BushCo for TSA and the fear factor! This is exactly why we have been safe for 7 years!!!! thank you, thank you!!!
But you know if a group of 9 Muslims sat silently on a plane and never said a word, someone would consider that suspicious, too. Amerikans, continue being vigilant!!!! Find it right here!
To go right along with Paul Krugman's op-ed (found in the post below) here is another by Michael Kinsley about the fearful administration's claim that they are keeping us safe. Find it right here!
Paul Krugman had an op-ed in the NYT yesterday that basically aligns with my thinking, though he is so much more eloquent. I just write random thoughts. What I have said earlier....Republicans hate government. In fact it is my thinking that Republican administrations PURPOSELY run up large deficits to tie the hands of incoming Democratic administrations. Krugman's thoughts...Find it right here!
Like everything else about this President the "ranch" was a lie...trying to be one of the "working folk", have a beer with me. I'm a cowboy. Everything is a lie....selling the ranch now that the charade is over.... Find it right here!
Past members of the administration are now starting to call themselves casualties of the war on terror! I thought they were all Chickenhawks...excuse me! We now have real live casualties from the war on terror that were actually in the administration. Alberto Gonzales on being a victim. Find it right here! Welcome to Bush World 2009 post administration....WE WERE THE VICTIMS!
2009 a NEW YEAR so.......It is time to kick this back up to the top as a new year resolution!!!!! This gem has been posted earlier in my rant but I like to kick it back up to the top now and then because to me it says it all.....A post by Tom Cleaver.......
19 and a half days left!!!! Happy new year! Nowhere to go but up!
Found this on the web today and wanted to share it. A Hardball documentary "The Decider" Find it right here!
I know the Israeli / Palestinian conflict is very complicated and entrenched. I think this whole Gaza Ghetto solution is just creating more terrorists out of ordinary Palestinians. Our fearful, ideological, globally hated administration just cheers quietly on the sideline and gloats that evildoers are being killed. George shrugs and goes off to clear brush while families are dying. (He does this very well) We can do better as a country. America used to be the beacon of hope and light for the world, maybe the Obama administration can lead us and the Middle East into a brighter future.
Let's lay this at the feet of our fearful administration as well...The number of homicides involving black youths — as victims and perpetrators — surged by more than 30 percent from 2002 to 2007, even as overall murder rates across the U.S. have been relatively stable, according to a study released Monday by researchers at Northeastern University. Why would I put this on the Bush team....the years involved 2002-2007. I would suspect that this current administration would have cut funding for helpful programs. If you are not an older wealthy Caucasian this administration would have no interest in you. I know I am really reaching on this but remember the track record for fearful leader and his team is not so good. Anyway read the story. Find it right here!
Like an ugly pus filled infection that has burst, the revelations keep coming. This time it has to do with OSHA regulations their disregard and manipulation. Find it right here!
Looks like Laura is drinking the kool-aid. Laura, just saying it, is not going to make it happen....you have to work for success....you can not alter this legacy no matter how much spin you put on it Find it right here!
Oops wrong again! Find it right here! "Dang, all my life I could tell em what I want and it sure as hell better happen...and it always did, thanks daddy!" George, your twisted, blue blooded upbringing left you delusional......you only controlled those that were related to you or worked for you and they put up with your shit because they HAD to! Just saying it, does not make it happen....you have to WORK for success.
So the Republicans love coal and nuclear...this is their energy policy. Lets not talk about renewable alternatives. We can just drill and dig our way out of our energy crisis! Maybe we could send each small thinking, short sighted Republican some of this...Find it right here!
Who would have thought!!! Finally something positive about the fearful administration. The expansion of health clinics during the last 8 years. Find it right here!
I am waiting for the Online January 2009 issue of Harpers Magazine detailing the cost of the Bush Presidency. DailyKos has a preview Find it right here! "The $10 Trillion dollar hangover: Paying the Price for the Bush years."
Of course the White House does not like this story and is accusing the NYT of gross negligence. Believe me, this administration KNOWS gross negligence!!!!!!...so their accusation alone should convince you the story is true....remember this is the administration that can only do one thing well....lie! Everything else they touch is a major catastrophe! About that mortgage crisis... guess where a lot of the blame could lay.....Find it right here!
Science is back!!! Find it right here! This makes you realize how creepy and complete the choke hold by the Reich wing nuts has been on the fearful administration. It is like a breath of fresh air to know what is coming and how utterly ready everyone is for this current administration to simply go away.
Bush is considering a farewell speech on lessons learned. Could he please spare us. Looking through the Daily Kos take on this interview, Found here, I thought Mother Mags gave a great comment of his c-span interview (found below). Find it right here!
1st Premise: I was a wartime President
2nd Premise: War is very exhausting
Ergo: I am very exhausting.
He also said he was so sorry the economic turmoil was happening...I think he meant he was sorry that it did not wait to unfold until after his term, as it was designed to happen (by Republicans).
So fearful leader (George) does not want to dump a major catastrophe into the lap of the incoming President....Uh, George, if you had really wanted to avoid doing that, I suggest that you should have never taken office or at least resigned on September 12, 2001 because you and your administration were clearly out of your league. The entire country and everything you have put your hands on is a major catastrophe....except those stem cells, thank god you saved them!!! Find it right here!
Orderly bankruptcy...Or how to "Do-In" thousands of middle class Americans. While I do not know what the average union auto worker earns, I do know that this is more about Republicans destroying unions than about some Republican ideal of not interfering with free markets. Find it right here! I have become so jaded because of this Administration and the Republican party that I could NEVER believe that it is for the good of America. I have come to see the Republican mission as one to destroy government and to destroy the middle class. Jaded and cynical
Bush says there can be no debate that he kept America safe...Personally I think we dodged bullets because of foreign countries and their clandestine intelligence gathering. I think that we were not victims of terrorism IN SPITE of the worst administration and their policies. Find it right here!
This gem has been posted earlier in my rant but I like to kick it back up to the top now and then because to me it says it all.....A post by Tom Cleaver.......
Fearful leader was insulted during his last visit to Iraq...called a "dog". His reaction was that he just does not understand what was this guy's issue...but it looks like he wears size 10 shoes Find it right here!
It was only 100 billion, quit whining, it's hard work!! Find it right here!
Guess what!!! The few bad apples, were in the White House and at the Pentagon!!!!! Find it right here! Of course it took the Senate panel 4 years to figure out what we knew from day 1
We are at the 10 year anniversary of Articles of Impeachment brought against Bill Clinton...it all seemed stupid and vindictive at the time. Now with our country in crisis, nothing is being contemplated against the real criminals...the worst of the worst. Well at least he has to live with his legacy. A long life to you sir!
Think about the last 8 years, the drumbeat was and still is...."it will hurt the economy". Kyoto ...."it will hurt the economy". Increasing automobile mileage requirements..."it will hurt the economy" Allowing extraneous lawsuits ..."it will hurt the economy" I know there are more out there....maybe if I go out and clear some brush I will think of them!!! Oh I did find this gem .....Bush claims Kerry will hurt economy!!! Find it right here! 51% of idiot America bought that one!! He had a mandate. He had political capital. He's a hero. Thank you George. I am so thankful you kept the economy safe from all the evil doers!
Have not seen this on the MSM so we shall see if this is accurate...if it is, it just further reinforces the legacy "worst of the worst". Who needs IED proof vehicles anyway!!!! You go to war with the vehicles you have, not with the vehicles you wish you had!!! Find it right here!
Bringing you a blast from the past....recall the summer of 2002 before the lies to go to war ..The fearful administration brought you the TIPS program (Terrorist Information and Prevention System) Ah yes, let's have a nation of spies and informers. It is hard to believe anyone voted for this guy and his ilk in 2004! TIPS Find it right here , Here and Here ....Nice...and he still thinks history will look kindly upon him! Stupid forgets the internet has a long and detailed memory.
President Elect Obama make your first act as president the funding of a Manhattan type project that will take our country off oil and onto renewable sources (WIND, SOLAR and TIDAL) within 10 years or before the year 2020. Instead of spending a trillion dollars on Death and Destruction spend it on something that will create a whole new paradigm, be revolutionary and you WILL CHANGE THE WORLD!!!
Having heard thoughts on our president claiming the war on AIDS in Africa as his legacy....well, I just have to point out that he may have helped prevent Africans of dying from AIDS but many are going on to die of famine, disease and especially genocide. All of them preventable. It is kind of like saving embryos from abortion so that when they turn 18 you can march them off to die in a contrived war. This sounds harsh but may not be too far off the mark. It really does sound harsh........
The administration that just won't go away
Feds Set to Eliminate Water Regulations for Neurotoxin
By Brandon Keim
Among the Bush administration's final environmental legacies will be a decision to exempt perchlorate, a known neurotoxin found at unsafe levels in the drinking water of millions of Americans, from federal regulation. The ruling, proposed by the Environmental Protection Agency in October, was supposed to be formalized on Monday. That deadline passed, but the agency expects to announce its decision by the year's end, before president-elect Barack Obama takes office. It could take years to reverse. Critics accuse the EPA of ignoring expert advice and basing their decision on an abstract model of perchlorate exposure, rather than existing human data.
Hard to believe that the same people who brought you a deregulated financial market based on a pie-in-the-sky model of supposed perfect capitalism would ignore expert advice in the environmental arena, isn't it? The abstract is always so much more appealing than the "existing human data." Find it right here and Here
Ok so it seems to me the regional party (basically in the South) known as the Republican party really do not want any part of an automotive bailout. Could it be because Honda, Toyota and a host of other FOREIGN manufacturers have sweet deals in their states and with the big 3 going under that will just sweeten the deal even more...Republicans..... the party that loves to hate and hurt
Even the generals think our fearful, chicken hawk leadership ruined America's legacy and they want it back! George is proud of his record on torture. Find it right here
So the fearful administration is going to work on their own version of the Bush Legacy....wonder how that will turn out????? find it right here. Here is a HuffingtonPost piece that seems to sum up things well. Find it right here

Barbara Bush has Surgery for an ulcer......ummmm anyone have any idea why this woman would get an ulcer??? Does she have any stress or misgivings in her life...aside from an idiot son who has ruined America credibility wise and financially. Oh yes he screwed up the BUSH name so profoundly, so resolutely that Jebbie will never be the Prez as he was supposed to be. Which reminds me ...We can thank Lawton Chiles, a beloved, wonderful and skillful politician who beat Jeb for governor in 1994. This kept Jeb from the governorship which if Jeb had won, he and not stupid would have won the Republican nomination for President in 2000. Being a Floridian I know how the scenario should have and would have been. Find it right here
Yesterday, our fearful leader on Iraq....
TOKYO (AFP) – US President George W. Bush believes the Iraq war was a success and is "very pleased" with what is happening there, he said in a pre-recorded interview broadcast on a Japanese television network Sunday. "I think the decision to remove Saddam Hussein was right," Bush told the Sunday Project programme of the private Asahi network. Saddam was an enemy of the United States and a lot of people thought he had weapons of mass destruction, Bush said, adding "remarkable" progress had been made in Iraq since the late dictator was toppled in 2003."People have been able to take their troops out of Iraq because Iraq is becoming successful. I'm very pleased with what is taking place there now," he said, adding there still is "a lot of work" to be done.
Please remove this man from our life. Just let him open his "library". Please let him drink himself into a stupor for the rest of his life. Find it right here
A thought....I have a feeling the next year or two will see a resolution to the health care issue...maybe not a perfect resolution but at least the issue addressed and the road to resolution started. The reason for optimism?....Fearful administration gone, Republicans marginalized AND millions of jobs lost the last couple of years also results in millions of people losing health care (health care tied to employment) Maybe this could be stupids legacy....he screwed the economy up so badly that the silver lining was the institution of universal (not tied to employment) healthcare. I can see sick and dying people all across the county saying.....Thanks George, for being such a failure!
The worst of the worst Salim Hamdan's (OBL's driver) is being released from Guantanamo to go back to Yemen. I think the worst of the worst should be in a jail cell. The worst of the worst should be made an example of!!! The "worst of the worst" ........George W. Bush
This gem has been posted earlier in my rant but I like to kick it back up to the top now and then because to me it says it all.....A post by Tom Cleaver found earlier in my rant sums it all up.......
2 months into his administration we were treated to this news... U.S. to pull put of Kyoto accord. find it right here! I distinctly remember the disbelief and it has been an ugly, downhill, wingnut slide to near ruin for the next 8 years. Way to go Repugnants! nice choice THE MAN SAID HE HAD A "MANDATE". lucky us.
As we get into the Obama administration and we begin to realize that stupid and his fearful administration has bankrupted the country and mired our country in doubling the national debt, we will begin to realize that Repugnants intentionally bind the hands of incoming Democratic administrations. We should still spend hundreds of billions, not just single digit billion spending to enable us to get off oil and corner the market on renewable and alternative energies. Leading the world into an energy rich and dynamic 21st century. (8 years delayed)
The legacy continues to shred and fall apart because it was based on wingnut ideology..... 5 Detainees at Guantanamo were ordered released...
Even in a courtroom that was closed to the public and the press, and with the detainees allowed access to the proceedings only by telephone, the court could find no reason to hold these men. This decision makes it clear once again that even with presumptions in its favor, the government cannot muster the barest evidence in support of its arbitrary detentions. For seven years, the Bush administration sought to avoid the courts because it had no evidence and sought instead to create a lawless prison.
We must note that justice here, however, comes seven years too late. The restoration of habeas corpus is a great achievement, and what is necessary now is for the government to give up this charade, rescind the ‘enemy combatant’ labels slapped on recklessly by combatant status review tribunals and return the men at Guantanamo to their home countries or, for those needing resettlement or asylum, to a safe third country.
We hope a new administration makes restoring the lives of hundreds of men at Guantanamo who have never been charged with any crime or tried in a court of law a top priority. Guantánamo Bay is a failure by every measure and must be closed immediately.
What is Wingnut Ideology?...Only REAL Americans deserve habeas! Americans that wear flag pins, go to a Christian church, belong to the Repugnant party, let me list more later!
Bush snubbed at G20...almost enough to make you feel for the guy EXCEPT he has lived by the sword...so.... also he has been a bully for 8 years. He has swaggered for 8 years. He richly deserves any and all humiliations that are dished out to him. Again what goes around comes around. You are either with us or against us Find it right here!
There was a discussion between Bill O'Rielly and Newt Gingrich text follows.....
GINGRICH: Look, I think there is a gay and secular fascism in this country that wants to impose its will on the rest of us, is prepared to use violence, to use harassment. I think it is prepared to use the government if it can get control of it. I think that it is a very dangerous threat to anybody who believes in traditional religion. And I think if you believe in historic Christianity, you have to confront the fact. And, frank -- for that matter, if you believe in the historic version of Islam or the historic version of Judaism, you have to confront the reality that these secular extremists are determined to impose on you acceptance of a series of values that are antithetical, they're the opposite, of what you're taught in Sunday school.
Gingrich, he of the multiple wives, multiple affairs, the divorce papers as his first wife recovered from cancer, yadda yadda yadda, is now going to talk about "Sunday school"? Yup, homeboy wants to move up, and he has to play the Palin/Huckabee/Dobson game in order to bring the crazies along.
Of course, the GOP's big problem remains. They've demonized gays, blacks, Latinos, immigrants, Asians, northeasterners, Californians, San Franciscans, people in Hollywood, Muslims, atheists, latte sippers, Volvo drivers, arugula eaters, city dwellers, youngsters, and women. Find it right here!
So here are the Repugnants still worrying about gays, immigrants, stem cells and abortion and the sad fact is the populace has moved on to issues like health care....renewable energy, global warming and the Economy... keep up the good work GOP see you at the polls in 2010!!
THE START OF A LEGACY...
Nicolas Sarkozy saved the President of Georgia from being hanged — a threat made last summer by Vladimir Putin, according to an account that emerged yesterday from the Élysée Palace. . . .The Russian seemed unconcerned by international reaction. "I am going to hang Saakashvili " Putin declared. Sarkozy thought he had misheard. "Hang him?" — he asked. "Why not?" Putin replied. "The Americans hanged Saddam Hussein." Sarkozy, using the familiar tu, tried to reason with him: "Yes but do you want to end up like Bush?" Putin was briefly lost for words, then said: "Ah -- you have scored a point there."

In other words, Bush has unwittingly left us with a new way to insult people. "Don't pull a Bush."

At the meeting of Governors in Miami, there was discussion about the how Republicans needed to reach out to the young through the use of networking and the internet ...excuse me the reason Obama struck a nerve with the young was because of something bigger than the internet.......it was the MESSAGE!!!
Please, please, please.... Republicans please nominate Palin or Gingrich or Huckabee in 2012 and talk about Dinosaurs and people coexisting at the beginning of the earth. Talk about the need to drill. Talk about outlawing the gay lifestyle. Drum the mantra of limiting abortion...you all will do just fine in 2012 and beyond. My heroes!

OH NO! It looks like fearful leader is going to lose his only shining moment of legacy.....It is rumored that Obama will reverse the ban on stem cell research
President Elect Obama...look closely at the fearful administration and learn lessons....... walk softly, do unto others, value all human life, be upfront and honest with the citizenry, build consensus, talk with you those that wish us ill will, play fair, surround yourself with the best and the brightest, encourage debate within your administration before deciding, make America the shining beacon of the world that it once was, close Guantanamo, get the U.S. off oil and away from beholding to foreign nations, In theory you could look at the worst administration and just do the opposite and you will probably be OK!
George W. Bush......assist the healing....do the right thing......make your last 76 days a thing for you to be proud of, assist our new President in the transition of power. Please do not continue to play the fool or engage in activities or crusades that will further harm our country and its reputation! Oh...... then please go away....go very far away.

I think it is meant to be. While the Repugnants have no one to blame but themselves for the mess this country is in, Obama, winning tonight, I think is equivalent to someone watching out for our country. WHY? because where else but in America can you go from a hateful, fear mongering administration that purposefully is divisive and mean spirited and go to a black man with the middle name Hussein....to hopefully undo all of what fearful leader and his administration has wrought upon our country!!!!!!
OK here is the data on gasoline prices for 2008 and 2006 and 2007
Both charts show the dramatic drop during the summer and continuing through to the election!!!!!
now what about 2007????????
A somewhat different pattern....why??? Maybe NO ELECTION? I don't know but yes I do think oil companies could manipulate the price trying to help their Repugnant friends
Mr. Obama make your first act, the funding of a Manhattan type project that will take our country off oil and onto renewable sources (WIND, SOLAR and TIDAL) within 10 years or before the year 2020.

The Repugnant party seems to be proud of the hate and division they stir up at rallies. Rep. Bachmann talking like the McCarthy of 50 years ago. Palin talking almost exclusively about Obama's relationship with terrorists. Repugnants talking about real Americans love god and liberals are not real Americans. Talk about hate and division!!! Does idiot America not see this ruse? They have nothing of substance to offer America so they use fear as a method to garner support. It is so fearful administration to utilize fear....four more years...of fear? There is still a week left in October, but fearful leader is in bed humiliated, depressed and drunk. He's like Marlon Brando, saying "I coulda been somebody" sorry fearful leader you hitched your wagon to a doomed philosophy and Ideology. You lose, you lost.....worst president, worst person in history. No October surprise could redeem what you have brought upon the world.
Colin Powell made this wonderful remark on meet the press....
"members of the party say, and it is permitted to be said. Such things as 'Well you know that Mr. Obama is a Muslim.' Well the correct answer is 'He is not a Muslim, he's a Christian, he's always been a Christian.' But the really right answer is 'What if he is? Is there something wrong with being a Muslim in this country?' The answer is 'No. That's not America.' Is there something wrong with some 7-year old Muslim-American kid believing that he or she can be president? Yet I have heard senior members of my own party drop the suggestion he's a Muslim and he might be associated with terrorists. This is not the way we should be doing it in America.
"I feel strongly about this particular point because of a picture I saw in a magazine. It was a photo-essay about troops who were serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. And one picture at the tail end of this photo essay was of a mother in Arlington Cemetery and she had her head on the headstone of her son's grave. And as the picture focused in you can see the writing on the headstone. And it gave his awards, Purple Heart, Bronze Star, showed that he died in Iraq, gave his date of birth, date of death. He was 20 years old. And then at the very top of the headstone, it didn't have a Christian cross, it didn't have a Star of David. It had a crescent and a star of the Islamic faith. And his name was Karim Rashad Sultan Khan. And he was an American, he was born in New Jersey, he was 14 at the time of 9/11 and he waited until he could go serve his country and he gave his life."

Fearful leader...fearful administration...Idiot America, The Reich Wing continues to use Muslims as the boogie man, trying to instill fear, trying to divide, trying to foster hate and division. That is why I could never support a member of the Repugnant party

National Debt When Jimmy Carter
...arrived at the White House:$660 billion.
Added during Carter's four years: $337 billion.
Added during Ronald Reagan's eight years: $1.6 trillion.
Added during George H. W. Bush's four years: $1.6 trillion.
Added during Bill Clinton's eight years: $1.5 trillion.
Added during George W. Bush's seven years, nine months: $4.5 trillion.
Portion of the $9.5 trillion added to the national debt during the past 31 years and seven months that came during Republican presidencies: $7.7 trillion.
Percentage of that $7.7 trillion added during George W. Bush's two terms: 58%.
Could somebody explain again what "fiscal conservative" means?

The chart about says it all....23%
Mr. Obama make your first act, the funding of a Manhattan type project that will take our country off oil and onto renewable sources (WIND, SOLAR and TIDAL) within 10 years or before the year 2020.
Oh my, fearful leader talks about not going it alone. STORY Using terms such as "interconnected" and "in it together". he is such a clown ...but ask him what mistakes he has made he will genuinely look dumbfounded to find an answer. Yet it is present in his latest words "interconnected". But of course it is too late for 5000 of our children. .It is too late for hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqi's. It is too late for our financial future. He did not care. He does not care. He is a Repugnant. He will have his daddy's money why should he care. It is time to break the back of neo-cons, evangelicals and other Reich wing nuts. It is time to punish every Repugnant at the polls and take veto and filibuster proof control of the house and Senate.
On a similar vein....Fearful leader relieved his reign of blessed ignorance and destruction is almost finished...MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!!!
So perhaps Fearful leader, his fearful administration and the Repugnants have succeeded in destroying the middle class. 401ks, 403Bs and IRAs all decimated. Now they have us where they want us. Next they steal the election and finish the job of destroying the middle class through McSame. Personally I think what they have done to our country will actually create many more Bill Ayers and weatherman underground type organizations. When the ordinary populace are desperate and passionate enough to rise up. The people that enabled and participated in the rape and murder of the middle class will......what? all flee to Paraguay with their fearful leader?
Awwwwwwww stupid wants us to be patient so WE DON'T WASTE TAX PAYER MONEY. I am so glad that he is so genuinely concerned about my money...he is a real hero.
By the way I have a scoop on John McSame's Iraqi war Strategy....STRATEGY
I just have to post an excerpt from Obama's Ashville N.C. speech today...He is sooooooooo good!!!
Obama also pulled no punches in Asheville, North Carolina, today either. He
went directly for the jugular on the McCain campaign's desire to turn the page
from focusing on the dismal economy. Excerpts from his speech today as provided
by the Obama campaign:
With just a month to go until election day, I know you’ve all been hearing a lot about politics out here in North Carolina. I know you’ve been seeing a lot of ads, and getting a lot of calls, and reading a lot about this election in the newspaper.
But none of you need the papers, or ads on TV, or folks like me to tell you what this election is all about. You know what’s at stake. You’re living it.
Here in Asheville, and across America, you’ve seen your incomes go down as the price of just about everything has gone way up. It’s harder to pay the bills. Harder to send your kids to college. Harder to save enough to retire.
And on Friday, we learned that we’d lost another 159,000 American jobs in September. It was the ninth straight month of job losses – more than three quarters of a million this year, including 24,000 here in North Carolina. And it came just as we finished a week in which our financial markets teetered on the brink of disaster.
Yet instead of addressing these crises, Senator McCain’s campaign has announced that they plan to turn the page on the discussion about our economy and spend the final weeks of this campaign launching Swiftboat-style attacks on me.
Think about that for a second. Turn the page on the economy? We’re facing the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, and John McCain wants us to "turn the page?" Well, I know the policies he’s supported these past eight years and wants to continue are pretty hard to defend. I can understand why Senator McCain would want to "turn the page" and ignore this economy.
But I also know this:
You’re trying to pay your bills every week and stay above the water – you can’t ignore it.
You’re worrying about whether your job will be there a month from now – you can’t ignore it.
You’re worrying about whether you can pay your mortgage and stay in your house – you can’t turn the page.
In 30 days you are going to elect the next president, and you need and deserve a president who is going to wake up every day and fight for you, and fight for the middle class, and fight to create jobs and grow our economy again -- not another president who doesn’t get it. Not another President who ignores our problems. Not more of the same.
Senator McCain and his operatives are gambling that he can distract you with smears rather than talk to you about substance. They’d rather try to tear our campaign down than lift this country up. It’s what you do when you’re out of touch, out of ideas, and running out of time.
I want you to know that I’m going to keep on talking about the issues that matter – about the economy and health care and education and energy. I’m going to keep on standing up for hard working families. We’re not going to let John McCain distract us from what we need to do to move this country forward.
Because November 4th, you and I are going to turn the page on the disastrous economic policies of George W. Bush and John McCain.
Drill Baby, Drill...politicians are so dumb...Ike's impact. .Find it right here.
Listening to the BBC this morning I learn that the senior British Commander (Mark Carlton Smith) in Afghanistan says a military solution will not work, that we must bring in the Taliban into negotiation. What would fearful warrior say to this?? He would scoff. He would fire the bastard. He would reference his hero David Patraus. Fearful leader would rather throw more of our children in harms way than to listen to reason and after all he is the DECIDER, the chicken hawk who used to swagger. No he will not even respond to this call he is too humiliated as he has nothing. I bet he does not even address this call. He will leave that to his genetic mutant twin John McSame. McSame knows how to win wars. He knows, because he has been there. He wants our children to be there 100 years. With fewer Repugnants in the House and Senate and Obama in office maybe we can do in 2009 and 2010 what we should have been doing in 2002 and 2003 TALKING not SWAGGERING and talking about..... "bringing it on"...."wanted dead or alive" ..."you're with us or against us". This whole Repugnant, neocon, born again, self righteous bullshit has come back to help move our country to the brink of such a weakened state even Russia laughs at us While I never try to use his name, all I can say is "thanks a lot George". I hope you live another 62 years so you can live everyday knowing you were the worst president ever.
So European banks are now starting to fail, thanks again to the greed of the American mortgage/wall street, lack of regulation, repugnant policies. How can they say thanks to Stupid and his Repugnant cronies in ....French, German and a few other old Europe, languages? What did Cheney call them? "Old Europe" bet "Old Europe" just loves our reckless, careless, fearful, chicken hawk, war mongering administration even more now, that American values are starting to sink their "Old Europe" economies.
Shifting gears to the the positive and good for our country......
Mr. Obama make your first act, the funding of a Manhattan type project that will take our country off oil and onto renewable sources (WIND and SOLAR) within 10 years or before the year 2020.
The swagger is gone. The smirk has left his face. He can barely construct a sentence with any confidence or enthusiasm. The legacy has been burned into his brain. LET THIS BE A LESSON MR. OBAMA! walk softly, do unto others, value all human life, build consensus, play fair, surround yourself with the best and the brightest, encourage debate within your administration before deciding, make America the shining beacon of the world that it once was, close Guantanamo, get the U.S. off oil and away from beholding to foreign nations, In theory you could look at the worst administration and just do the opposite and you will probably be OK!
So is this (the economic collapse) the beginning of stupid's October surprise??? Stupid probably had something up his sleeve( A drive by shooting of Iran's nuclear facilities) but the tanking of the economy was probably not what he had in mind!!! Too bad. When economic times are tough.....start a war...How about it? oops already done that.
Could this economic collapse of the middle and lower middle class be a planned event by the Repugnants???? think about it, they hate anyone who is not of their class ...they hate anyone who is not rich. Their whole mantra enables big business to get richer and richer and screw the working man. They are probably LAUGHING at us all, as we struggle to make ends meet, work two jobs, maybe find ourselves homeless...It all could be part of a strategy
A new and better writer has been added to the rant with a more professional Wordpress look. I think in the end the original website will most likely go static either in 2009 or 2010. That would all depend on revelations or investigations that occur after stupid leaves office. We will not accept "Dick Cheney made me do it" as a reason for all the miserable failures of this administration.
I was re-reading my last post and started thinking that many people who stumble across my little rant would think of me as harsh. I call the President, stupid and America, idiot America and it is harsh and all I can say is this post by Tom Cleaver earlier in my rant sums it all up.......to cheat and lie to the office of the presidency. McCain....same thing almost last in his class at the Academy. While at the Academy he belongs to some loser/ troublemaking clique. Then marries into wealth and status. He goes with his gut feeling no matter what the cost or outcome and what do the repugnants do????? The same thing they did for stupid....try to foist him on our country. The worst part, IDIOT AMERICA will probably swallow it hook line and sinker
"When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying the cross." -- Sinclair Lewis
Did you see Georges' speech last night ..like he was trying really hard to be serious ("don't smirk, don't smirk, don't smirk") and trying to pretend he cares.
After hearing an interview with Thomas Frank author of the Wrecking Crew it made me reflect on maybe just maybe the Repugnant's goal is to bankrupt government . Who ran up monstrous deficits Reagan, Bush and now stupid...why???? Maybe because the cornerstone of the Republican philosophy is less government and perhaps that has morphed into NO government. They hate government, so what better way to destroy it than to run up deficits. This also handcuffs any Democrat administration. This is exactly what Reagan/Bush did to Clinton. Now stupid and his reich wing nuts are doing it again. Idiot America...we could do so much with the money we have and the only things repugnants can come up with is lies for war and lies to enrich their friends on Wall Street and Big oil. I need to find some charts correlating deficits and administrations
Why is idiot America all up in arms over a 700 billion dollar bailout of Wall Street??? Stupid's war is going to cost us way more than that!! (can you say TRILLION) Which again begs the question ..."why did we invade Iraq?" A country (of the axis of evil) that DID NOT have weapons of mass destruction. Why did we not invade North Korea...with its million man army we could have had 50,000 dead but it at least would have not been a lie...THEY DO have weapons of mass destruction
Listening to the news tonight they were talking about the last government bail out in 1989. that was the S&L bailout. Think about it ....who was in the Whitehouse the previous 8 years before the 1989 bailout....from 1981 to 1989...a Repugnant (R.R.). Who has been in the Whitehouse the previous 8 years before the latest bailout a Repugnant (stupid) So why does idiot America not see a correlation here....... Repugnants and their free market philosophy and their trust in the private sector seems to have a few bugs in it. The bigger scandal is The financial industry takes advantage of Americans then are bailed out by the American taxpayer...so much for the private sector and limited government regulation REPUGNANTS = FAILURE
Jon McSame...on Monday..."the fundamentals of our economy are strong" REALLY???
OK so now my 403B is down by almost 30% but I am so glad this is happening on stupid's watch and not Obama's. It all just adds to the brilliant legacy of the worst president ever...no more swagger, he does not even make commentaries or appearances...which is fine by me. I was so sick of his smart ass attitude, his frat boy mentality...and guess what!? John McSame at the academy...he ranked 893 out of 899 graduates or some such awful performance plus he formed some kind of "bad boy" group...just what our country needs another smart ass type who is not too smart and makes decisions by his gut feeling...it has worked so well for 8 years and idiot America will probably vote for 4 more years.
It seems fearful leader has been laying low. Of course, would you not also hang your head in shame when on your watch....The running up of trillions in debt, stock market tanking, gas over 4.00 a gallon. The trashing of the constitution. Over 4000 dead for a lie. The torturing of people who may be innocent, their only crime being turned in by bounty hunters. Ignoring scientists and their data he is a real hero...he saved the stem cells....might need them for the next Republican induced war.
speaking of gas prices are we not seeing a repeat of this little goodie from the summer and fall of 2006
A peak about the first week of August of 2006 to fall steadily until the third week of October lasting through the first week of November (election day). then a slight upward drift until the last week of December. It drops through January until it reaches its lowest point ...the forth week of January, then nothing but up, up, up, until......summer of 2008. I will post the 2008 graph in a couple weeks......frighteningly similar!!!!
The thought of a McCain/ Palin victory has me ill. 8 years of lies and what do we get from the Repugnants...campaign lies...Idiot America wants more lies. They don't want the truth. They want to always to be able to go to the mall, nothing else matters. McCain says he goes with decisions from the gut. Great more of the same!!
Saw a commentary on Pravda online Enough Mr. Bush The Russians don't want to hear from stupid either....he has nothing to say!
So stupid thinks it is wrong to invade a sovereign nation...well imagine that...At least they did not have to travel half way around the globe to pick their country to invade. SEE he lost his ability or right to have anything to say on this subject. he squandered everything for an ideology. Do you think he can hear everyone laughing when he talks about a nation's sovereignty. He is such a loser.
I have been thinking about Salim Hamdan's (OBL's driver) verdict and sentence at Guantanamo. Guantanamo where the worst of the worst are harbored, where many have languished for years. Many were turned in as terrorists for bounty. With no Writ of Habeas Corpus to challenge their detention. A fine situation created by our fearful leader and fearful administration. So the Judge and Jury sentence him to 5 and a half years with credit for time served. Many of these worst of the worst have been released and now they cannot even convince a court that they are indeed threats to America. This is stupid's continuing legacy... fear, stupidity and disregard for rule of law. I think the sentence was a form of dope slap to this ugly Administration. I am so looking forward to Hamdan's end of sentence and see stupid squirm as he is confronted with releasing the worst of the worst 2 weeks before he surrenders the Presidency to Barack Obama. Do I think Hamdan is a terrorist?...I don't know, but if he wasn't, he will probably become one.
Stupid is telling China to stop violating human rights!!!???!!! I would revoke his VISA. This man should have nothing to say on anything. I hope after January 20th 2009 WE NEVER HEAR FROM HIM AGAIN.....EVER!!!!!
Regarding post 1/20/2009 I have registered the domain name www.BushCheneyInc.com a parody of a post fearful administration consulting company....stay tuned!
Someone made a post on Dailykos of an editorial from the Pensacola News Journal here is the letter
McMain is the right man
We have an easy choice to make for our next president. George W. Bush has done an outstanding job running our country, along with the support of the Republican Congress and Senate, except for the past year and a half. We are certainly much better off than we were when President Clinton left office. Sen. John McCain will carry on most of our president's policies and I hope Republicans can regain the House and Senate. I know many think McCain is too old for the job, but he is a war hero. He will also support the repeal of Roe vs. Wade. I hope you will disregard the small mistakes Sen. McCain makes in stating facts and positions. I am his age and I have difficulty remembering many things, and don't have the energy I used to have, but he will have the benefit of many of President Bush's excellent advisors. McCain will also keep us in Iraq and not leave like the cut-and-run Democrats want. Also, let's keep the tax cuts for the wealthy because they employ us. Vote McCain and keep our country on the road of progress established by our president.

Personally I think it is satire, but it does make me laugh. If true, how can we as people 100 miles apart see things so differently/ There is no hope!
I changed up my website just a bit today...making the top post the most current. Essentially reversing the order of the posts. I doubt many people scroll through my thoughts and rants so posting my current thoughts at the top of the page may be helpful. I have been thinking....what becomes of the site after 01/20/2009 ??? Perhaps I could make the home page a compendium of all the highlights of the Fearful leader era (ERROR)
What is happening to John McSame...talk about hateful language maybe the reality of a democratic sweep this November is driving him to extremes or perhaps he is old and losing it
The Dems want to tap the Strategic Petroleum Reserve....What is that going to do for us???? Why do we have such worthless representation???
So Obama goes to Berlin ...looks presidential, delivers a speech to 200,000 people McCain blasts him for being presumptuous. He is such a breath of fresh air from the fearful leader.
I was thinking with the passage of the FISA bill today which will shield telecoms and was something fearful leader and his fearful administration wanted....BADLY The Democrats handed it to the Repugnantcans. So what if we were to start a really huge movement here we had hundreds of thousands of people making a phone call or sending an email a day each one of them incorporating 10-15 alarm words .... airplane, package, Mohammed, plan, building, dirty, launch, bomb, meeting, and on and on and on....so it goes...can't you see the alarms ringing at NSA!!!!!! Tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of phone calls and emails every day.
So stupid is telling Japan that he will not let the North Korean's forget about the kidnapping of Japanese citizens from 30 years ago........ahhhhhhhhh don't you think you have more pressing issues??????? The world is going to hell and you worry about stem cells and people kidnapped 30-40 years ago???? No wonder he is the most despised leader on Earth (IMHO)
So the Repugnantcans are calling BHO a flip flopper. I think Barack responded something to the effect of he will allow himself the prerogative to reposition himself on issues as he learns more about the issue. they should really turn this around on Bush and McSame by pointing out that when fearful leader has been proven on the wrong side of an issue or things go terribly wrong FEARFUL LEADER REFUSES TO ADMIT ERROR AND REVIEW AND REPOSITION. This attitude of I have decided and that is going to be the way it is has been nothing but a disaster....no wonder stupid could not run a company let alone a country
I just heard on the BBC that Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe has declared that he is sweeping towards re-election. Fearful leader is one of many outraged leaders around the world calling the election a farce and a sham. I started thinking is there really that much difference between Mugabe's actions and fearful leader???? Both ignore the wishes of the people. They ignore what other world leaders think. They both abuse people...Mugabe does it outright with sticks and swords fearful leader does it through subterfuge, stealth, lies and deceit but both abuse and disregard the citizenry. Both have rigged elections. Again Mugabe does it through violence . Fearful leader does it through deceit and through the corrupting of others and using fear questioning patriotism. in the end fearful leader is much more dangerous.
I found this retro Gumby flag pin perfect for a President with a sense of humor and glib attitude
I thought this post on dailykos was thoughtful, insightful and well written
And just what is the significance of the symbol that a young Barack Obama is wearing,,,,has nothing been written about this. Has the Reich Wing not seized on this and linked it to some Muslim conspiracy?????
A link to my profile on the Obama page HERE
While my blog can be a disjointed rant, here is a link to a fellow Obama supporter's well written thoughtful blog Return To Normality
Looks like hilLIARy is going to perhaps withdrawal from the race maybe as early as tomorrow. I think Obama could put one or both Clintons to work in his administration....NOT AS VP!!!!!!
Now it is time to come together!! I am going to start donating money and volunteering at the local Obama office (as soon as it opens). I cannot imagine that Obama is going to do any thing other than crush McSame
FWIW I found that my blog has been referenced for the first time on another blog...HERE
you have to put your cursor over the words particular brand
Been keeping track of the delegate count on Dailykos and what I have noticed over the last two weeks is the daily trickle to Obama. Some Superdelegates are switching. Some Superdelagates are making their initial choice. Pledged delegates keep showing up onto Obama's total. The trickle is really not being reported but it is there. I will put the daily count on the election 2008 page
saw this Quote on the web sums up my feelings as well!!!!
"Not only do I want an elite
I want someone who's embarrassingly superior to me."
-- Jon Stewart, 4/15/08
I don't want someone that I would like to have a beer with. I want someone that will pick the best and the brightest to run agencies. I want someone that will have some advisers that think outside the box. I want someone that will talk with our enemies. I want someone that will increase taxes to dig us out of this hole and convince Americans it is the right thing to do. I want someone that will admit mistakes. I want someone that will not always be on message. I want someone that will not always be spinning the message. I want someone that will always try to do the right thing. I want someone that will deliver 500,000,000 million dollars in aid instead of 500,000 with no conditions attached. I want someone that will not lecture other countries but set an example instead. I want someone to reinstitute the draft. I want someone that will move our country into the lead in cornering the renewable energy markets. Someone who is a thinker and reflects.
Another FAILURE Bush grovels to the Saudis to pump more oil....they say NO!!!!!
I remember fearful leader Harping about Clinton not Jawboning the Saudis...He would jawbone them to pump more or lower prices
FAILURE, FAILURE, FAILURE, FAILURE, FAILURE, FAILURE, FAILURE, FAILURE, FAILURE, FAILURE, FAILURE, FAILURE, FAILURE, FAILURE, FAILURE, FAILURE, FAILURE, FAILURE, FAILURE, FAILURE, FAILURE, FAILURE, FAILURE, ENOUGH SAID.....LOSER.
Googled Bush lies and got a quote I liked from HERE (Bushwatch.com)
In the Bush administration "the negation of truth is so systematic. Dishonest accounting, willful scientific illiteracy, bowdlerized federal fact sheets, payola paid to putative journalists, 'news' networks run by right-wing apparatchiks, think tanks devoted to propaganda rather than thought, the purging of intelligence gatherers and experts throughout the bureaucracy whose findings might refute the party line -- this is the machinery of mendacity...The point here is not the hypocrisy involved, though that is egregious. The point is the downgrading of truth and honesty from principles with universal meaning to partisan weapons to be sheathed or drawn as necessary. No wonder the Bush administration feels no compunction to honor the truth or seek it; it conceives truth as a tactic, valuable only insofar as it is useful against one's ene
Heard THIS story today on ATC on NPR. Once again here is MAYBE a possible opening to talk....just to talk. The fearful administration can't....won't whatever
Also I was thinking with summer coming we are going to start seeing the flood of books by people who were with the fearful administration. As we go past the election the flood should turn into a tsunami I need to make a list. Stupid is going to wish that he treated people better
What a great speech Obama gave in N.C. gave after his victory!!! It's over hilLIARy
I am not a fan of Burma's government but I find it ironic that the fearful administration will lecture them on response to a natural disaster...."heck of a job Brownie" out clearing brush oblivious to bodies floating in water in NOLA. Where do we get off lecturing other countries....that's right fearful leader is at the pulpit, being self righteous....chastising others.....judging, while he sleeps with the church secretary. it seems to me that we could get past conditions and lectures and just inundate the PEOPLE with help and assistance while fearful leader calculates ways to spread righteousness and morality and Democracy. One thing you can say about fearful leader he is consistent ....consistent in his inability to care about the human condition
I heard on the BBC that fearful leader made a remark where he blamed rising food prices on the new and growing middle class in India and their move towards higher quality food. Yes lets blame people in other countries. How many more months??? days???
Ok so tonight I listen to NBC evening news...two stories caught my ear.
Fearful administration offers 250,000 in aid to the cyclone devastated Burma wow A QUARTER OF A MILLION. Our geniuses still do not know how to use the carrot and they had to send that sad first lady to do the administrations bidding.
They are building a wall around Sadr city neighborhood of Baghdad. I guess to keep insurgents in. who knows, again with the walls If it was not so sad especially the 250,000 in aid it would be funny God has got to be proud of fearful leader.
So McSame and hilLIARy want to pander to idiot America eliminating the 18 cent a gallon Federal tax which would save 5% on a fillup Only Obama will call it what it is........a "gimmick"
Last night I had heard that Clinton had an ad on in Pennsylvania that featured Osama Bin Laden. That is soooooooooooo fearful leader.
makes me sure without doubt
Speaking of Fearful leader he was in NOLA and once again he said this is not a recession it is just a slow down
looks like Fearful leaders plan to use Paraguay, as a last resort, escape prosecution from war crimes plan just came to an end....Paraguay just booted out the corrupt party that has been in power for 61 years. His world is crumbling. deservedly so!!!
A Harpers article on a poll of historians... here WORST PRESIDENT EVER!!!
Here is another link to the same story ... Here
Here are some of the comments that the historians furnished:
“No individual president can compare to the second Bush,” wrote one. “Glib, contemptuous, ignorant, incurious, a dupe of anyone who humors his deluded belief in his heroic self, he has bankrupted the country with his disastrous war and his tax breaks for the rich, trampled on the Bill of Rights, appointed foxes in every henhouse, compounded the terrorist threat, turned a blind eye to torture and corruption and a looming ecological disaster, and squandered the rest of the world’s goodwill. In short, no other president’s faults have had so deleterious an effect on not only the country but the world at large.”
“With his unprovoked and disastrous war of aggression in Iraq and his monstrous deficits, Bush has set this country on a course that will take decades to correct,” said another historian. “When future historians look back to identify the moment at which the United States began to lose its position of world leadership, they will point—rightly—to the Bush presidency. Thanks to his policies, it is now easy to see America losing out to its competitors in any number of areas: China is rapidly becoming the manufacturing powerhouse of the next century, India the high tech and services leader, and Europe the region with the best quality of life.”
One of my favorite shows on NPR, This American Life had a wonderful show on our fearful administration.
Listening to the news tonight....heard that fearful leader threw the first pitch at the first game in the Nationals new stadium...greeted by more boos and jeers than cheers...guess they (fearful administration) could not control who (loyal supporters) came into the stadium. They have managed crowds that stupid has addressed during the last 7 years.
