Top Republicans Splitting Bush For Obama

Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts) on May 6th, 2007 8:00 am by HL


Republicans defect to the Obama camp

Times Online UK
Excerpt:
Bush in the bubbleDISILLUSIONED supporters of President George W Bush are defecting to Barack Obama, the Democratic senator for Illinois, as the White House candidate with the best chance of uniting a divided nation.

Tom Bernstein went to Yale University with Bush and co-owned the Texas Rangers baseball team with him. In 2004 he donated the maximum $2,000 to the president’s reelection campaign and gave $50,000 to the Republican National Committee. This year he is switching his support to Obama. He is one of many former Bush admirers who find the Democrat newcomer appealing.

Matthew Dowd, Bush’s chief campaign strategist in 2004, announced last month that he was disillusioned with the war in Iraq and the president’s “my way or the highway” style of leadership – the first member of Bush’s inner circle to denounce the leader’s performance in office.

Although Dowd has yet to endorse a candidate, he said the only one he liked was Obama. “I think we should design campaigns that appeal, not to 51% of the people, but bring the country together as a whole,” Dowd said.

But last week a surprising new name joined the chorus of praise for the antiwar Obama – that of Robert Kagan, a leading neoconservative and co-founder of the Project for the New American Century in the late 1990s, which called for the overthrow of Saddam Hussein.

HL’s Take
The Republicans are done. Everyone now sees what total A**holes they are, on every conceivable issue. They are doomed in the next election if they don’t change their votes on Iraq. Bush’s approval rating is down to 28% and the war is even less popular. The republicans in congress are stuck between a rock and a hard place. Either go along with the Insane Failure Monkey and lose their seat in the next election. (which some of them will be stupid enough to do. They will stay on the Titanic all the way down) or change their vote on Iraq so we can end this retarded death fest already. The next President will have a super majority in the house and Senate so they can immediately begin to undo all the unspeakable horrors that Bush has done to this country immediately. They also better hold him and Cheney accountable. By that I mean Levenworth for life.


Obama Needs Much Larger Room Then Hilary For Speech in Louisiana

Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts) on May 6th, 2007 7:35 am by HL

Barack Obama, and Hilary Clinton both gave speeches in the same place in Baton Rouge La. Yesterday. Obama who spoke later in the day had to have his speech moved to a much larger room to accommodate the crowds that came to see him. He is currently the front runner for President. I wonder if Hilary would accept a Vice Presidential role, if it came to that. Then she could still get Bill involved. Might be a nice ticket. Of course both candidates slammed Bush on Katrina. Which had to be the worst domestic blunder by any President ever.


Clinton, Obama criticize Bush on Katrina

S. Florida Sun Sentinel
Excerpt:
BATON ROUGE, La. — Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton criticized the Bush administration’s response to Hurricane Katrina and pledged Saturday to funnel more federal aid to the still-recovering Gulf Coast if elected.

Speaking to the National Conference of Black Mayors, Clinton and Sen. Sen. Barack Obama both took President Bush to task, although Obama focused mostly on the Iraq war and Clinton on domestic issues.

Clinton and Obama are leading the pack in early polls measuring the race for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Clinton said she was angered when she saw images of New Orleans residents on their rooftops, begging to be rescued from the floodwaters that followed the August 2005 hurricane. She said Bush’s response was a display of “incompetence.”

“It is a great injustice that you would deny the resources to your own people, but that shouldn’t surprise us, because many people are invisible to this president,” she said in a morning speech punctuated with applause….

Obama visited students at Pierre A. Capdau Charter School in New Orleans later Saturday. He called on the federal government to invest $250 million in the city’s schools, saying they were neglected even before Hurricane Katrina.

“When it comes to education in New Orleans, it’s not enough to just clean up damage from the storm. We have to clean up the damage from before the levees broke,” Obama said.

Asked what he would do for the city if elected, Obama said he would hope that the Bush administration would have addressed many of city’s the larger concerns by January 2009. “But I’m not optimistic,” he said.

Bush Approval Rating Down to 28% (Even Lower Then Daddies)

The Elephant in the Room

George W. Bush has the lowest presidential approval rating in a generation, and the leading Dems beat every major ’08 Republican. Coincidence?
MSNBC
Excerpt:
May 5, 2007 – It’s hard to say which is worse news for Republicans: that George W. Bush now has the worst approval rating of an American president in a generation, or that he seems to be dragging every ’08 Republican presidential candidate down with him. But According to the new NEWSWEEK Poll, the public’s approval of Bush has sunk to 28 percent, an all-time low for this president in our poll, and a point lower than Gallup recorded for his father at Bush Sr.’s nadir.

Perhaps that explains why Republican candidates, participating in their first major debate this week, mentioned Bush’s name only once, but Ronald Reagan’s 19 times. (The debate was held at Reagan’s presidential library.)

When the NEWSWEEK Poll asked more than 1,000 adults on Wednesday and Thursday night (before and during the GOP debate) which president showed the greatest political courage—meaning being brave enough to make the right decisions for the country, even if it jeopardized his popularity —more respondents volunteered Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton (18 percent each) than any other president.

HL’s Take
Thats right Bill Clinton. You think people don’t miss the Big Dog? Bush is poison to The Republicans right now, and they know it. It will be great to watch the idiot Monkey drag them all down for the next year and a half. By the time this thing is over Bush will have to move to his 98,000 acre ranch in Paraguay because it’s the only place where he won’t be hated by the masses.


Boehner: If Surge Doesn’t Work (I know I know) We’re Screwed

Boehner Acknowledges GOP Nervous on Iraq

Fox News
Excerpt
john boehner
WASHINGTON — The House Republican leader said Sunday that GOP support could waver if President Bush’s Iraq war policy does not succeed by the fall. A top Democrat said it would be “ridiculous” to stop insisting on linking new war money and a troop withdrawal.

House Minority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, said Bush’s troop increase deserves a shot.

“We don’t even have all of the 30,000 additional troops in Iraq yet, so we’re supporting the president. We want this plan to have a chance of succeeding,” he said.

“Over the course of the next three to four months, we’ll have some idea how well the plan’s working. Early signs are indicating there is clearly some success on a number of fronts,” he said.

But, he added, “By the time we get to September or October, members are going to want to know how well this is working, and if it isn’t, what’s Plan B?”

HL’s Take:
Thats the problem Johnny boy, you don’t have a Plan B… Bush has never had a plan B, thats one of the many reasons he is the worst President ever. Hey Johnny, did you hear that another 50 people died in Iraq this weekend, and oh yeah more soldiers died last month then any other since the war started. BUSH’S SURGE OF DEATH IS NOT WORKING…(Well it is working for Bush because failure is his S.O.P. but for you Johnny it’s a bad deal because you will be voted out on your ass) Enjoy your retirement.
