    If you think Bush brought honor and dignity to the White House simply because he is not getting BJs from interns... then you just might be a Bushbot If you think Bush was upfront, forthcoming and totally honest about his reasons for invading Iraq.... then you just might be a Bushbot If you think it is just a liberal myth that Bush is controlled by big business interests... then you just might be a Bushbot If you think Bush's positions on education, assault weapons, prescription drugs, etc. are just games he has to play and are really good for conservatism...

    Emerging from the political shadows, former Vice President Al Gore (news - web sites) upbraided President Bush (news - web sites) on Thursday for pursuing a divisive, ideologically narrow agenda and misleading the nation on issues from Iraq (news - web sites) to the economy. The 2000 presidential nominee delivered the major policy address amid calls from some Democratic quarters for Gore to change his mind and join the crowded field of nine White House candidates. He tried to end that kind of talk with a simple declaration: "I am not going to join them, but later in the political...

    Will the Bush administration ignore the huge, unexpected drop in consumer confidence reported for June? Can it continue to gloss over the struggles of millions of U.S. families? Bush now faces the worst employment growth record of any administration since Herbert Hoover's. And its "tax cuts for the rich will help us all" mantra has an undertone of "who cares about the rest of you?" This administration really hasn't offered any workable strategies to lift the economy. The trickle-down strategy was deemed "voodoo economics" by Bush Sr. The deficit strategy may bankrupt us. Blaming Bill Clinton is just sophomoric. Will...

Looking back, however, it is clear that these facts were known even before the war... but the media did not emphasize the story until it was already too late. For example, on March 26th we...

    New York Observer ^ | Joe Conason
    According to contemporary political lore, the Bush clan exalts loyalty above every other virtue. Other politicians envy that inviolable code, whose power is reflected in the absence of leaks from the White House, in the lockstep obedience of politicians in Congress and around the country, and in the enormous cash donations from hundreds of wealthy "friends." This is how dynasties are built to endure. But at the highest level, in the inner councils, such feudal allegiances often require awful sacrifice and compromise. For those who now work for George W. Bush, loyalty means surrendering professional integrity and accepting public humiliation....

He was elected in Flori-duh, after all.

    The plain facts are shocking. Nine thousand families are currently homeless in New York City, the highest number on record. Indeed, homelessness is rising across the country as jobs vanish, incomes shrink and families are forced onto the streets. Meanwhile, George W. Bush is spending the astounding sum of $4 billion a month in taxpayers’ money to keep 146,000 U.S. troops in Iraq—troops who are being murdered on a daily basis, with over 70 dead American soldiers since the war ended on May 1 and no foreseeable improvement. This confusion of priorities is an embarrassment to this country and Mr....

    <p>Call it the curse of the wartime president. Not a single U.S. president who has led the country into a major war has gone on to serve another full term in the White House. Not James Madison after the War of 1812. Not Woodrow Wilson after World War I.</p> <p>Not Lyndon Johnson after Vietnam. And not George H.W. Bush, who won a popular war but was unable to win over everyday Americans a second time. Will the current President Bush, who is expected to raise record amounts of money in his re-election bid, be able to buck this long and curious trend in American history? Every president who has led this country into full-scale war has paid a heavy price politically and personally. Most chose not to run for re-election and, upon leaving office, saw their vision for America rejected by the voters, their party defeated and their rivals elected. Some left office with shattered reputations, fading into a marginalized obscurity and irrelevance. And the few who survived grueling re-election campaigns were swiftly cut down by illness or assassination.</p>

    July 4, 2003 | "Slander" is defined in Bouvier's Law Dictionary as "a false defamation (expressed in spoken words, signs, or gestures) which injures the character or reputation of the person defamed." The venerable American legal lexicon goes on to note that such defamatory words are sometimes "actionable in themselves, without proof of special damages," particularly when they impute "guilt of some offence for which the party, if guilty, might be indicted and punished by the criminal courts; as to call a person a 'traitor.'" So how appropriate it is that in the rapidly growing Ann Coulter bibliography, last year's...

Moore, who won the Best Documentary Oscar at this year's Academy Awards for his anti-gun film Bowling For Columbine, threw his backing behind left-wing candidate Ralph Nader in the 2000 elections - but Cusack believes that he should have joined him in tactical support of Democratic candidate Al Gore instead - to ensure Republican George W.

Wouldn't it be refreshing if Fox News, CNBC, CBS and others were to make the same apology for...

    <p>COULD SOMEBODY please tell George W. Bush that he is not commander in chief of the judiciary? No matter how ''hot'' he looked in his flight suit, black robes require a cooler demeanor. The administration seems to think that the president has the right to appoint judges the way he can appoint overseers to Iraq. It has forgotten that the Senate is supposed to advise and consent -- and sometimes dissent.</p>

    Hail to the great hyprocrite Paul F. Macri, Auburn, Maine President Bush is a great American, a great American hypocrite, that is. My stomach turned last Thursday night as Bush’s jet landed on the USS Abraham Lincoln and America saw him in a flight suit for the first time since he went AWOL from the Texas National Guard more than 30 years ago. Don’t those cheering sailors — who truly are brave and did serve their country — know that Dubya conveniently sat out the Vietnam War, not as a protester or Rhodes Scholar, but with a rich boy’s “in”...

    Don Imus, Quoted in NewsMax ^ | 5/14/03 | Carl Limbacher   Wednesday, May 14, 2003 12:07 p.m. EDTStephanopoulos: Candidate Not Wrong to Say Bush Stole Election In a radio interview Wednesday morning, ABC's "This Week" host George Stephanopoulos defended a claim by one of the Democratic Party presidential candidates that President Bush stole the 2000 election, saying it was "a reasonable inference" based on the evidence. Stephanopoulos was asked to respond to a comment by former Illinois Sen. Carol Moseley Braun, who told Sen. Joe Lieberman during the party's May 3 presidential debate: "We need to pursue opportunities for individuals to vote, instead of making it a high hurdle...

  • Bush did indeed fail to finish military duty

    In reply to Sandra Anderson's May 9 letter to the editor, "President deserves to wear military uniform," here are some facts regarding President Bush's failure to serve honorably in the Texas Air National Guard: After serving less than two years in the Texas Guard he moved to Alabama to work on a political campaign. He had requested a transfer to the Alabama Guard, but ignored an order to report for duty there and simply never showed up. He also never reported to the Texas Guard again after he moved back to Texas. Bush has said that he quit flying in...

    ABC | 5/8/03 | I'm ALL Right!
    ABC is broadcasting the Dem's desperation far and wide! Their entire program was dedicated to slamming President Bush's visit to the Lincoln. I find it amazing that this issue has become such an enormous talking point for the Democrats. Obviously, they don't have anything of substance to criticize about, and they are grasping at straws.

    I knew that the wave of anti-Americanism that would swell up after the Iraq war would make me feel ill. And it has. It has made me much, much more ill than I had expected. My anti-Americanism has become almost uncontrollable. It has possessed me, like a disease. It rises up in my throat like acid reflux, that fashionable American sickness. I now loathe the United States and what it has done to Iraq and the rest of the helpless world. I can hardly bear to see the faces of Bush and Rumsfeld, or to watch their posturing body language,...
