HEROIC PRESIDENT SOARS - WHILE DEMS WHINE
NY POST ^ | May 11, 2003 | Letters column

I can't believe the gall of Democrats who question the cost and motives of President Bush's visit to USS Abraham Lincoln ("Suicide Dems," Opinion, John Podhoretz, May 9). This, after eight years of a president who every time you turned around was at a fundraiser. How'd he get to those events? Walk? As they say, the cost of raising the spirits of our fighting men and women - priceless!

(Criticizing Bush's appearance on the Abraham Lincoln) .....after eight years of a president
who every time you turned around was at a fundraiser. How'd he get to those events? Walk?

X-42 took the most expensive presidential trip ever - costing $50M.

I hear tell he sold seats for the trip, and once on-board, Hitlery sold refreshments....for campaign cash (LOL).

NOW the Congressional Democrats are critical of how much the institutional costs of having a President add up. The difference is, that today we really do have a President, while for the period January 1993 to January 2001 (the Interregnum), there was an imposter who occupied the Oval Office, but failed to carry out many of the assigned duties of President. Couldn't fight a war that was thrust into his face, couldn't concentrate on the business of governance, but boy, could he ever drum up campaign cash and enjoy the perks and immunities conferred upon the office.

Heck. Just one or two of Empress Hazel O'Leary's trips to Africa with her HUGE retinue probably cost the taxpayers as much as this trip to the the Lincoln.

....and don't forgot x-42 's ability to get it on with WH interns......

Bush swallowed the democrats canary when he landed on the USS Abraham. (Maxine H2O's term) Now the democrats can't go down into the mine. I love it.

In all humility.......

I've attempted to create a background reflecting my feelings for what George W. Bush has meant to this country. If you would like it for your computer- feel free to download a copy. Distribute it if you like.

Large File [1024x768]
Small File [800x600]

If you like it, please bump this thread so others may find this background. If, on the other hand, you think it stinks- don't bump.

Great column. But don't you think the piece might be counterproductive, since it might get the Dems to stop calling attention to Bush's aircraft carrier trip?


No, after all this is the party that sponsered and put on the "Welstone Memorial"

Keep it up Dems, please keep it up!

Speaking of ex Energy Empress O'Leary, ex-Sec Def "The Prince" Cohen, and the "Travelers" Billy and Hill, we can't ignore current bwanas with cap B -- one being Secretray of the Treasury Paul O'Neill -- and his fab trip Africa-way, with abso fab mega star U2's Bono!

'Ere's what mega star Bono told CNN afterwards:

This is what America is about. You read the Constitution, it is a poetic thing, standing with the weak and oppressed and guarding each man's sacred honor, or whatever the phrase is.
A real Constitutional EXPERT -- fab mega star, world hunger activist, and Constitutional expert, all rolled into one!

A wonderful voyage of Compassion into Africa!

I forget, did they visit Zimbawe? Does any one remember? Just asking...

Don't forget how X-42 and the Ice Queen airlifted a fleet of limos for a short vacation in Aspen so that their gaudy entourage could travel the town in style.

Hey, I just got my invitation to this year's "Thank God, Paul Wellstone Is Still Dead! Annual Celebration." The ultra-left wing of the dem party sponsors it (and, probably caused) bucause there is now no one to the left of Hillie and she can claim to be a centrist and there will be no one to her left to dispute her.

Anyway, the tickets are very, very expensive (mainly to keep out blacks and rif-raf; this is the dem elite, after all) but Willie is going to play his sax. The invite says "open bar," and suggests that there will be "escorts, male [again, the dem elite] and female," and "assorted chemical stimulants."

So, it should be as much fun as the first party Paul's folks had. All the dem candidates will be there except Sharpton and Moseley-Braun. They won't be there for the same reason they won't be nominated, the democrats don't like blacks, never have, never will.

Plausible, and helps explain the possible matricide. People close to death do at times let out deep dark secrets. Not only for conflicts in his own schedule, and PR cycle purposes did Ma have to go right then, but to keep secrets.

In the upcoming democratic primary (2004) ...

BIG AL NEEDS OUR HELP! - Register as a democrat and vote for Crazy Al!

Rev. Al Sharpton is officially running for president in 2004.

During the May 3, 2003 demoncrap debate in Columbia, S.C., our man Al stated “The way to move a donkey is to slap the donkey,” and “I’m going to slap the donkey until the donkey kicks”.

Let’s help Crazy Al slap the donkey until it kicks.

Assume GW has the Republican nomination sewn up. Its time for all good republicans, libertarians, and independents to stand up and be counted. Lets take a page from Sen. McCain’s play book. Prior to the 2004 democratic presidential primary in your state, re-register as a democrat and vote for Al Sharpton!

Wouldn’t it be great if Crazy Al won! At the very least, lets ensure he gets prime time speaking rights at the 2004 nationally televised democratic convention. You gotta love it. Line up, sign up, and send this to all your like-minded friends.

Check here for the rules governing primary voting in your state: http://www.fec.gov/votregis/primaryvoting.htm

In case you’d like to send Big Al a donation:
http://www.sharptonexplore2004.com/

Anyone need a bumper sticker or button?
http://democraticbuttons.freeservers.com/

How about an Al Sharpton yard sign?
http://shop.store.yahoo.com/victorystore00/pryasi.html

Oh yea, and don’t forget to call the local demoncrap party headquarters and ask them the following before the primary election:

1. Can I get a ride to the polls – help them spend their money during the primaries so they’ll have less during the national election. Have them take you the scenic route and stop off and do some shopping on the way home.
2. Are you giving anything away free for voting democrat? Cigarettes, box of cigars, box lunch, etc. Ask for two of each.
3. Send 25 cents in the mail to the DNC and watch how much they spend on mailing you to give to the party. Great way to help them spend money and keep you up to date on their propaganda.
4. Can you think of any other questions we should as them?

X-42 took the most expensive presidential trip ever - costing $50M.

That $50M. was for one trip, the one to Africa I think. X-42 spent in access of $280 Million and that doesn't touch what Hillary spent on her trips here and abroad. Together they spent in the neighborhood of $350 Million and some of that money was taken from the Defense Department. The Clinton Travel Office refused to say what Hillary was spending; she paid back only part of a few small trips here at home. The GOA should publish more of the account we taxpayers provided for that trash!

I call the Democrats the 'Dem-olitions.' They would prefer to let the country blow up or go under if it assured a victory in the next election.

I call 'em the Demonicrats.

I remember all the flap when Hitlery was doing her "listening tour" - before she officially got in the race - she was using Air Force One for all her trips to NY.

The RNC put up a big stink, but the GAO didn't do anything about it.

No I do not. That story is from memory. I know it was discussed here when it happened. I believe it was 17 limos.

I'll see if I can find documentation sometime later today.
