49 More Dead in Iraq, Bush to send 1500 More Troops to Iraq...
49 killed in string of attacks in Iraq
Not including Tuesday's attacks, at least 4,066 Iraqis had been killed in war-related violence so far in 2006, according to Associated Press reports, which may not be complete because the reporting process does not cover the entire country. That figure includes 871 in May, surpassing the 801 killed in April.
H.L.s Take Yep. Just another day, another month, and another year in Bush's quagmire in Iraq. Everyone wants out, except Bush. Even most of the Republicans in congress want out at this point, because they know they are dead meat come election time. Thanks to the supreme court and a lot of stupid people, no one can do anything about anything until after the November elections.
U.S. moves 1,500 reserve troops to Iraq
WASHINGTON - U.S. military commanders are moving about 1,500 troops from a reserve force in Kuwait into the volatile Anbar province in western Iraq to help local authorities establish order there. "The United States stands ready to help the Iraqi democracy succeed," President Bush said Tuesday.
The troop movement, announced earlier by military commanders, comes as Iraqi officials continue to struggle to set up their government, amid new spikes in violence...The deployment comes at a time when the Bush administration is under heavy election-year pressure to begin drawing down the roughly 130,000 American troops in Iraq. The White House ceremony was aimed at countering negative news from the region.
WHAT??? They are sending more troops in?? I thought they were talking about moving some of the troops out. (In time for the elections, so Republicans can call themselves the Peace Party, in their campaign speeches) This can only mean one thing. Bush, Rummy, Condi, Cheney, and the entire Republican Party are a bunch of FAILURES, FAILURES, FAILURES.... Miserable miserable FAILURES
Bush to host 'United 93' screening
WASHINGTON - President Bush invited relatives of some of the 40 passengers and crew members who are portrayed in "United 93" to join him for a screening of the film at the White House Tuesday night.
Bush and his wife, Laura, planned to watch the film about the attacks in the family theater. The film focuses on the tragic drama aboard United Flight 93, the plane that crashed in rural Pennsylvania after passengers fought back against their hijackers.
Bush: Hello Mrs. Smith
Mrs Smith: Yes
Bush: This is Presdient Bush
Mrs. Smith: What the F**k do you want.
Bush: I want to invite you to a screening of flight 93, since your son was on that flight
Mrs Smith: You murdering monkey bastard, get off my phone (click)
Bush: OK Laura scratch off another one.
Clerks in line of fire over gas prices
Tempers are rising along with gas prices. Gas stations across the country report that drivers are taking out their gas rage against big oil by yelling at clerks and cashiers and sometimes driving off without paying....Employees of Fleming Corp., which operates 14 gas stations in Kansas and Missouri, have heard everything from "just a mumble-grumble kind of thing to a cheap shot or blaming the clerk for world oil prices," owner Ed Roitz said.
Oh so drivers in Kansas and Missouri are blaming the gas station attendant for the high prices?? Never underestimate denial, its a very powerful drug. Hey guys how about putting the blame where it belongs, on the guy YOU voted for twice, George W. Bush. Hey maybe that gas jockey can get you kids out of Iraq, he'd do a better job then Bush.
Moderate Republicans struggle to hold on
SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. - Moderate Republicans are off and running in the summer horse racing town of Saratoga Springs and other upstate New York cities, struggling to save their jobs and a dying political breed.
In a party dominated by conservatives, the last of the Northeast GOP moderates face several daunting election-year trends, including a strong top of the Democratic ticket in statewide races and growing discontent with President Bush, the Iraq war and the Republican-controlled Congress.
Bush's rating are in the mid 20's, The Republicans in congress are even lower. The country is going to hell in a handbasket, yet we still get stories like these next ones, because Congress is Bush's own personal wet blanket.
High court limits whistleblower lawsuits
By a 5-4 vote, justices said the nation's 20 million public employees do not have carte blanche free speech rights to disclose government's inner-workings. New Justice Samuel Alito cast the tie-breaking vote.
My husband is on the government's terrorist watch list
My husband is not a terrorist.
He's not an ex-convict, a felon or on the lam, and if you don't count the occasional Post-it notes or paper clips that come home with him from the office, he's not even a petty thief.
But so far, he's had trouble convincing the government of this.
Every time he flies, regardless of the airline, he gets flagged when he checks in because he's on our government's terrorist watch list. As it was explained to us the first time it happened, something about his name, Michael Patrick O'Brien, creates the need for an airline manager to clear him.
Bush Gets Harvard Business School To Break Their Own Admission Rules for "Peanut"
Blake Gottesman, a.k.a. “Peanut”, Special Assistant to the President and Personal Aide, is stepping down in August to attend Harvard Business School. It’s a great accomplishment considering the school only admits 10% to 15% of its applicants. But to even be considered for admission, the school states firmly at the top of its qualifications, a prospective student “must have completed a degree program at an accredited U.S. four-year undergraduate college/university.”
Peanut on the other hand, only attended college for one year, and never finished. He has, however, dated Jenna Bush, makes the President peanut butter-and-jelly sandwiches, and dog-sits for Miss Beazley.
