"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

Long Arm of the Jack

The longer the Abramoff scandal goes on, the more people it ensnares. It amazes me just how many people got sucked into his web just because there was a lot of ready cash in the casino business. Here now, we have Sen. Harry Reid implicated. But of course, as the Bushies get excited about the ability to point a finger at Reid, we find 3 more Repuglikans snared too.

And to Bush's statements that he doesn't know the man, even if he did have his picture taken with him, Abramoff supplies the editor of the Washingtonian magazine with an e-mail stating that he had talked to Bush nearly a dozen times.
Bush "joked with me about a bunch of things, including details of my kids," Abramoff recalled of his contacts with the president.
On Thursday, White House press secretary Scott McClellan said that "what the president said still stands."

Abramoff's e-mail states that Bush "has one of the best memories of any politician I have ever met." The e-mail said that Bush's ability to recall is one of his "trademarks, though of course he can't recall that he has a great memory!"

The e-mail adds, "Perhaps he has forgotten everything. Who knows."

Forgotten everything? Perhaps he's no longer mentally capable of fulfilling the duties of office.
