And They're Off and Running!
After playing tough with the democratically elected Hamas government of Palestine and cutting off funding, the EU is stepping in to provide money to close that gap and keep the Palestinian people from starvation - and the total is 150% of what we've been giving. Guess he lost on THAT gunslinger stance. So now he's stuck with having pushed for Democratic elections, and then trying to punish the Palestinians for electing a government Bush didn't want. But the punishment failed because the EU stepped in. Looking kind of stupid, huh? No duh.
Democrats are still after the illegal domestic spying issue. They just aren't giving up. This thing is apparently getting way more traction than the stonewalling efforts of the administration anticipated. And that is a good thing. Spying on citzens without probable cause is NOT OK in a democratic society.
The lawmakers said the surveillance of terrorists must be done within the bounds of U.S. law, but complained that their efforts to get answers to legal and factual questions about the program have been stymied — "generally based on the feeblest of excuses."
"If the effort to prevent vigorous and appropriate investigation succeeds, we fear the inexorable conclusion will be that these executive branch agencies hold themselves above the law and accountable to no one," wrote the lawmakers"
And the governors of ALL 50 states are jumping on Georgie about his plans to cut the funds for the National Guard. Maybe he's afraid the governors might use a strong Guard to resist martial law?
"We're getting ready for tsunamis. We're getting ready for earthquakes. We're getting ready for forest fires," said Democratic Gov. Chris Gregoire of Washington state. "Cut all that back and I think you're left with a really troublesome situation."
And speaking of governors, they're also busting King George's chops on the issue of illegal imigration. But let's face it - illegal immigration is merely a symptom of a much more serious issue - LACK OF BORDER SECURITY. If an uneducated Mexican farmer can manage to sneak in, how many educated terrorists with a support network can get in?
And, the governors are telling the MSM that Bush's cock-ups are hurting the party at home. Everybody's home. Funny, either they aren't telling Bush directly, or they did and got no response, so they're now going public. But it was only a matter of time until Bush hurt the GOP - or should I say until the GOP realized Bush was hurting it.
So it looks like Bush is set to have another 'triple Tanquery straight up' week. And that is a good week in the making for us, my friends.
