"Compassionate Conservatism"

George Bush was spending some time at his ranch in Crawford, Texas. One afternoon, he was riding in the back of his official limousine when he saw two men eating grass by the roadside. click here


SUBJECT: Operation Middle East Piece.

That's what they're calling it. Mainstream media just can't spell right.


Oh, Elena, so true.

BAGHDAD LOOTING UPDATE: US Troops protect Ministry of Oil & Interior while museum and library are gutted.

Robert Fisk: US guards only oil and intelligence as looters ...  

BAGHDAD - Iraq's scavengers have thieved and destroyed what they have been allowed to loot and burn by the Americans - and a two-hour drive around Baghdad shows clearly what the United States intends to protect, presumably for its own use.

After days of arson and pillage, here's a short but revealing scorecard

We now see compassionate conservative values in action. We gotta get that oil.


Just a thought!  Each day I tune in Washington Journal on C-span. A man called in and asked them to please show Bush's speech recently to the Governors' meeting in Washington, DC. He said that Bush was either drunk or on drugs. I didn't see this but wonder if there is anything to it.
Thanks for the work you do.

I haven't found anything on that particular meeting.  But I recently saw a video on CNN of Bush exiting Marine One on the White House lawn.

Picture this scenario ( see photo below ): Barney, the Scottie dog, was sitting on the second step, blocking W's exit from Marine One.

Guess what Bush does when confronted with this dang gummed situation?

Does Bush tell Barney to move? No he doesn't.

Bush decides quickly to climb over the dog. At that exact point, Bush looked like he was looped on something, as he clumsily lifted his leg like a guy walking the DWI line.

Of course, Bush could have been in a rush to break into his cocky strut he has perfected since the war began.

Thanks for writing.
