"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

Bipartisan Bush Budget Bashing

Seems that the Chimperor may be offending even his own flying monkeys with the new budget proposals. He's cutting funding to education and medical care (among other things), the very issues that will get the Rabid Right voted out of office next fall. And he's meeting with resistance over it, even from his own party.

Not that I think the Republicans in general give a runny crap about any working people. I suspect they think we're all cattle, or just unprocessed Soylent Green. They certainly care more about the health of their investment portfolios than they do about the health of the nation, the Constitution, or the people they allegedly serve.

But they do care about the votes, which surprises me given the Repug corruption in the voting machine agenda. Apparently it's not completely controlled as yet. And caring about the votes means that they don't want to have to go back to doing divorce law, insurance cases and pro bono legal aid. (OH God, no. Not legal aid, with all those smelly poor working folks coming into the office!) So wanting to stay in office might just translate into votes against the Bush agenda. The entire GOP Rabid Right pillaging effort may be cut short because the Chimperor can't control himself, and is setting the party to fighting among themselves as a result.

They've already started to self-destruct. It's going to be a fun thing to watch.
