  •  You MUST see the video. (3.50)
    I've never seen a Stratagist look so lost.

    It's like she kicked his puppy and spit on his mother.

    Want to beat Bush... it's the LIES, stupid.

    •  So Typical (4.00)
      On NPR (and J. Stewart has been doing it forever), a guy was pointing out how the Republicans are idiots in terms of analyzing and thinking on their feet until the talking points come out.

      The example was the WH and R-Cong reaction to the recommendations of the 9/11 Comm'n.

      Pre: TPs -- "NO MORE BUREAURACRACY"

      Post: TPs -- "VERY IMPORTANT TO MOVE QUICKLY ON THESE RECOMMENDATIONS."

      They are brainless.  This is yet another in a long list of examples.  The electorate is beginning to see that Emporer George is naked.

      At the risk of detracting from DB's Home Run, since the RNC and the WH is serving up watermelons, right over the plate, at about 15mpg, all of our people ought to be hitting them out of the park.

      •  Where was George Bush (4.00)
        While John Kerry was serving his country for the past twenty years, WHAT HAS GEORGE BUSH DONE ???

        Well, let's see, George was drukn until he was 40, he's 57 now, so, for three years of John Kerry's service to our Country, George Bush was a drunk

        After that, while Kerry was successfully serving his country, George Bush failed at several business ventures Oh, don't go there George)

        and then, George served as one of the weakest Governors in the country, and acomplished little, while John Kerry was serving in the highest Legislative body in the land

        So, while John Kerry was serving in the Senate, George Bush was: Drunk for three years, a failed businessman for 7 years, a weak governor for 5 years, and the worst President America has ever had for four years

        That is the record that is supposed to make John Kerry look bad ???

        •  So are you saying (4.00)
          George was drunk, ran a couple of businesses into the ground, traded away Sammy Sosa, and did nothing in Texas except execute a lot of people that we really hope were guilty?

          Is the drinking the only thing he did well? Maybe he should go back to that.

        •  I always get the feeling (none)
          that the "Bush strategy" should backfire.

          Flip-flopper, yep, George Bush
          Ineffective, unqualified - also applies to George Bush.

          Does he really want people to examine his record?

          •  Projecting your flaws on your opponents (none)
            Is a very sucessful fascist tool.

            It was used by Goering and perfected in Rwanda, to get masses of people to murder their own neighbors.

            Read the link above about the Rwanda spin-meisters ant tell me it doesn't remind you of Rush, Pat and Ann Coulter...

            •  Shaking Hands With the Devil (none)
              Having gotten to the arrival (late and sad) of the French to Rwanda, I am more than 3/4 through the Romeo Dellaire book about it. It was unimaginable. As a Canadian, I was sorrowfully struck at the General's capacity for blind optimism that the world would simply see and act. They did not. They saw and they ignored and the prevaricated and they stalled. Human lives were lost at an astounding rate (faster than the 3rd Reich ever managed through industrialized genocide) while the worlds powers calculated cost and debated the appearance of impartiality. I would say the loss of innocence and that agony is something Canadians share and experience daily. The parallels between the right wing punditry and the RTLM (Rwandan extremist radio) are profoundly chilling. More so as they spread lies at the behest of their governmental superiors, who maintain safe distance and are never directly implicated, professing no direct control over their vile message. From this point of view, the United States is destined for a dreadful future, and those airwave extremists are complicit in the total destructive transformation of the constitutional nature of the country. The future is always in motion, and the roiling in the clouds forward is full of terrible portents,

              I highly recommend you look at Shake Hands with the Devil ( a brutal thing to get into , but utterly addictive reading after the first 6th, which is biographical set-up) and also for another more general view of the state of things , Samantha Powers > A Problem from Hell :  America in the Age of Genocide

        •  Incompetent (none)
          ...and incredibly bad , fraudulant CEO whose energy firm sold nothing to no-one for billions ( were he any other mans son, he'd have gone to Prison for malfesance )
          His great accomplishment while governor was the execution of over 100 inmates on Texas Death row , many under the age of consent and a number suffering sexual abuse and mental illness disorders.
    •  Where can I see the video? (none)
      Is there a link or does CNN replay it later?
