Bush's Phony Government

So the Bush administration's Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is in the news again. Everyone remembers FEMA for the bang up job they did with hurricane Katrina. Well now they held a phony press conference touting the outstanding job they are doing with the California fires. Problem is the supposed reporters present were FEMA employees, while real reporters on the phone were not allowed to ask questions. Oops!

Phony elections, phony press conferences, phony science, phony reasons for war, phony compassion. Does anyone else see a Bush government pattern of behavior?

Fuzzy Economic Math, Con Style!

On Chris Matthew's show over the weekend, Washington Post reporter Kathleen Parker blames Democratic state leadership for the downturn in the economy. To support her statement, Kathleen notes the average U.S. unemployment rate is 4 percent (its actually roughly 4.4) and points to Michigan's high unemployment rate (7.4) as evidence that Democrats are to blame for our bad economic state. Putting aside the fact that the manufacturing industry has laid off thousands in Michigan, it's funny Kathleen doesn't mention that five of the seven states with the worst unemployment are run by republiCONS. Further, in those states that have worse unemployment rates than the national average, Democratic states run 5.1% unemployment while CON states are over 5.7%. It would appear CON management of state economies is worse than their Democrat counterparts. Odd Kathleen didn't mention this.

The Republic isn't over until we say it is!

New York Times columnist Paul Krugman on Bill Maher's Real Time stated the republic would be over if it weren't for Bush's ineptitude. Paul is half correct. While President Bush's incompetence has minimized the damage to nation, the real reason the republic is holding on is because average Americans like a caller to CSPAN who confronts Rep. Trent Franks , or the Rep. Joe Knollenberg constituent who is demanding accountability from his elected official, or the hundreds of people who showed up at a Brian Baird town hall meeting, or the Frost family who want health care for all needy children aren't ready to give it up.

The country isn't over until the people say it is and that drives the CONS nuts. Keep up the good work everyone.
EXTRA: Get your the Republic Isn't over tee-shirt right here.

Fishwifey: Badge of Honor?

RepubliCON hack Cheri Jacobus described Senator Hillary Clinton's response to a question about her recent vote on Iran as "fishwifey," "shrill," and "thin skinned." The implication is obvious: Senator Clinton is defensive, desperate and irrational. In other words, unfit to lead.

Fine. By this standard most of the republiCON field is disqualified. Take cranky John McCain for example. He called a student a "jerk" for merely having the temerity to ask the longtime public official about his fitness to lead the nation. It appears Arizona's junior Senator is a bit too "thin skinned" to be president. Or how about bumbling Fred Thompson. Freddy had to drag applause out of a recent campaign audience. Smacks of desperation. And then there's Willard "Slick" Romeny who insulted average Americans by stating that his five sons don't have to serve in the military because they are serving on his campaign. Talk about irrational.

It's clear as to why republiCON hacks attack Hillary and the rest of the Democratic field, run from the Bush record and fail to talk up their candidates, they know their guys are in trouble. Every stone thrown by a CON at a Democrat illustrates the GOP's fear and confirms the Democratic nominee will be the one to beat next year.

Keep slinging CONS!
