Today's lefty spin on Enron

Since the leftys have been unable to find a 'quid', much less a quid pro quid, the focus on Enron has changed. Campaign Finance Reform is secondary to, 'what about the poor employees'. Henry 'my nostrils are my garage also' Waxman sent up the trial balloon earlier this week.

When Enron called in their chit and asked for help from GWs cabinet, they shot 'em down. So much for buying favors. But now Waxman and the rest are crying over how the Bush administration should have done something for the employees.

It will be interesting how the Enron story will be presented today. In mid-week the story was "Enrongate" and how it was going to topple the Bush administration. By yesterday most of the "pack journalists" had actually taken the time to look into the vast influence Enron had with both political parties including the previous administration. I suspect "Enrongate" will soon be relegated to the Business Section as executives from both the company and its auditors are brought to justice.

He seems to be a union thug, but I did listen intently to his new book promos on the loss of American identity.

Timmy doesn't hit the local airwaves for 6 more minutes so I'll just sit here and watch this commie pinko Katrina Vanden Heuvel spew her venom on C-Span.

Katrina Vanden Heuvel of The Nation is on C-Span. She gets it! And boy is she steamed. She said so herself: Republicans "own" family values. Republicans "own" the flag.

She's such a nitwit, and soooo transparent. 30 seconds after she said people should use the internet to find out the truth about George Bush making secret deals with the Taliban, she was asked about the NYFD statue being altered to meet PC standards. She said (lied), she didn't know anything about the statue, and besides, the internet is full of right wing conspiracy theorists.

And yes, she threw in "This administration cares more about corporation fatcats than they do the little people."

A caller says, "I wondered who would be putting out such drivel, then I saw it was the editor of The Nation".

Re: Waxman.....Poor GW...damn if you do, damn if you don't....the Rats need to make up their minds.

I thought Sam and Kookie were going to devout the whole hour to Erongate?

For those of you who have the stomach to watch, keep those of us who don't, informed...please.

Please let me know what he says. I cannot stand to watch him any more. Since McCain just got back from Afghanistan, I imagine we will hear about that.

Kristol is defining liberals and conservatives...blah blah....and I used to like this guy. He really sold his soul for McCain.

The liberal bias is not a myth, as Katrina said. Kristol said the right should not use "liberal bias" as an excuse.

Kristol says he hopes Iraq will topple on it's own, but irresponsible to assume that's going to happen. "SO IMPORTANT TO REMOVE SADDAM",he said, and it's going to take ground troops.

I was right!!! Lieberman's trip to Afghanistan with McCain was the opening of his presidential campaign. Kristol says Lieberman will make a very important military speech, tomorrow. (Last week Daschle, this week Lieberman)...oh the democrats are on the presidential prowl)

C-Span will cover Lieberman's speech live at 1 pm, est.

I am proud to say that I have not turned on the TV to political news since Friday afternoon. It would be great if all freepers did that because their ratings would immediately fall into the toilet. They don't realize how much Republican political junkies play in their ratings war. Even with all that is beginning to be known about Enron and clinton, The NY Times continues today to blame President Bush. I refuse to watch this slime and I am normally an all-politics all-the-time person.

Tim Russert showed a quote by Waxman, saying (paraphrase) that the Whitehouse knew of Enron's problems and did nothing to help out thousands of people from losing their savings.

That's it?

That is Waxmans beef?

Waxman is upset because Bush didn't bring Big Government to step in and take control? I thought the Dems were supposedly against "more government". And here Waxman is complaining because there is not enough?

Waxmans an idiot!

And Bush has not a single connection to Enron as Clinton(s) did with Whitewater!

This is a ploy set up by the Dems and Hillary will show to be behind it!! What idiots!

Well, I'll sure agree that Waxman's an idiot- and a rotten one, too.... claims to be anti-tobacco "for the children's sake" but one of his big supporters is a Chinese tobacco firm.
( sorry, no link, I heard this on talk radio years ago! )

I just can't bear to watch the fools on these shows anymore- even C-Span's been corrupted, don't watch them, either.

If Bush administration had stepped in to help ENRON, Waxman would have screamed "fatcat favoritism".

Sine Bush administration refused to step in to help ENRON, Waxman screams, "Bush didn't step in to help the little people".

Waxman's nostrils would be flaring no matter what Bush does..it won't be too long before Waxman's attack dog politics hurts all democrats.

Kristol says it will soon become evident the Clinton administration did more for ENRON than Bush Administration.

Commerce Secretary Donald Evans on MTP was abysmal. He could barely make a coherent response. Bush's economic wing of his cabinet are about as bad on TV as you can get. Where are Karen Hughes and Karl Rove when you need them?

Kristol continues his machinations in an attempt to destroy President Bush. Why does HE know about this speech? Because McCain and Lieberman are plotting and they are sharing the info with him. Kristol is doing his darndest to cause trouble, and I hope he gets his comeuppance.

By the way, I was pleased to see that The Weekly Standard issue that I saw at the bookstore is about as thick as a grocery insert in the paper. They must get NO ad revenue! Hope Rupert decides to pull funding!!

Timmy remnds me of "The Little Locomotive That Could."

"I think I can, I think I can" get Don Evans to implicate the Bush administration. Think again Timmy, ain't gonna happen.

Sooner or later these guyz will have to hang their collective lamestream heads and admit the Bushies are above the fray.

Can we please start killing Sadam or something. Anything that's real news.

I thought O'Neill did fine. He's just low-key. Next - it was absolutely great. Hume and Snow first nailed Dingell for his $10,000 received from Enron, then his own phone calls received from Enron, whe HE wasn't recusing himself - then for the focus of his investigation(s), if any. They then asked him if he planned to have Clinton-Stooge Rubin testify as part of his investigation. Dingell looked like the sniveling hypocrite that Democrats are, on this issue.

Kristol is right..there is no Vast Left Wing Conspiracy among the media. The media doesn't need to conspire, it's genetic!!!

Kristol says the ENRON story is going to get much more bipartisan in the coming weeks, and he's not sure there is a political scandal here. He said, "I don't believe the ENRON scandal goes anywhere".

He says the conservative message is getting out there now, for the first time via FOX who is beating CNN. He repeats his message...yes, there might be a gentle tilt to the left in mainstream media, just because they are located where they are, but that's not an excuse, and it's not the argument that will win converts to the right.

Dingle came on fuming about how Bush officials received donations and were later contacted by Enron execs. Brit Hume nailed him by pointing out that Dingle took money too. Dingle earlier said that because Enron contacted Cheney, there should be an investigation. Hume got Dingell to admit that Enron had contacted him too! Dingle refused to say when! It was classic.

My favorite quote from FNS today:

John Dingell (D-MI): "I have opposed Enron every turn."

Two seconds later, he admitted that he'd taken $10,000 from Enron in campaign money. That, he didn't oppose.

I suspect "Enrongate" will soon be relegated to the Business Section as executives from both the company and its auditors are brought to justice.

It started dying today as a scandal magnet on MTP. Prosector Timmy tried hard to link the Bush administration by innuendo, but shut his trap when Evans mentioned that GE and Bechtel were big investors in Enron's India venture.

Hume/Dingle exchange: "It was classic!" YES!!!!!!!!!! Brit also kept at him to say whether his committee would call Rubin to testify. Rubin had intervened for Enron. Dingle hemmed and hawwwed.......his committee he said would call "everyone" to get at the truth.....Brit replied "Then that is a 'yes'?" Finally, Dingle said yes. I so love Brit Hume's persistence in his questioning/nailing these people!

Dingellberry said that since Cheney was in discussions with Enron over deregulation, he would investigate. Then Hume nailed Dingell when he asked if Enron had ever contacted him. Of course, he was contacted. Unless Dingell is a hypocrite (laugh) I guess he has to investigate himself!

It seems to me a lot of this would be defused if the executives who took that huge bonus and stock options would form a fund to help out a bit. It would also protect them from lawsuits to a certain extent, plus I do think that they bear some moral responsibility for the 401K mess, if not a legal one.

I did. Biden: This administration was warned that if they did interim appointments, ALL THE REST OF THE APPOINTMENTS would be held up. What kind of a threat is that? The Rats are already doing it. Biden was repulsive, but methinks he forgets the popularity of the President. Whenever the RATS stand in his way, the American people will perceive it just that way. President Bush is trying to get things done, the RATS are obstructionists!
