It does look like a tentative agreement has been reached between W. and Congress on the automaker bailout front. Guess who got their way? The 22% popularity president, naturally. George W. Bush, who recently signed, without hesitation or petulance, a bill bailing out criminal and conspiratorial banking companies to the tune of $700 billion, would just not have anything to do with rescuing 3 million jobs by guaranteeing a $34 billion loan to automakers. By god, he had to draw the line somewhere. Little cowpoke Georgie didn't stomp his little cowboy booted feet, not even once, leading up to the massive bailout of organized gambling houses on Wall Street....if fact...he couldn't get the bill to his desk soon enough.
But with an industry filled with unionized workers, an industry laid low financially BECAUSE of the very criminal conspirators on Wall Street....well....petulant little George has principles, you know. So Georgie got his way....and Congress will tap the $25 billion already designated for developing fuel-efficient cars....
On Friday, Ms. Pelosi said she would allow that money to be used provided “there is a guarantee that those funds will be replenished in a matter of weeks” and there was no delay in working toward greater fuel efficiency.
History revision watch....
The Bush administration has proudly "created reality" for 8 full years. No matter what the facts, empirical evidence or data demonstrate....the Bushie's "create reality". True reality, during the Bushie's occupation of D.C., was never allowed to gain traction. With a compliant Knee Pad Media making it easy for Bush "reality creators", it took Americans until 2005 before they started to understand that W. was a very, very bad person.
Now the "reality creators" are at it again....only this time, because too many people know the truth now about W, reality must be "recreated". Revisionism is in full swing. Recently, George the Younger, sat down with ABC's asshat, Charlie Gibson, and began to revise the narrative of his presidency.
GIBSON: Do you feel in any way responsible for what's happening?(in the financial collapse)
BUSH: You know, I'm the President during this period of time, but I think when the history of this period is written, people will realize a lot of the decisions that were made on Wall Street took place over a decade or so, before I arrived in President, during I arrived in President.
Yeah, I've been president Charlie, these past 8 years, yep....but if you want to blame someone, look no further than to Bill Clinton's Penis....that's who (or what) is responsible...not me.
BUSH: I don't know -- the biggest regret of all the presidency has to have been the intelligence failure in Iraq. A lot of people put their reputations on the line and said the weapons of mass destruction is a reason to remove Saddam Hussein. It wasn't just people in my administration; a lot of members in Congress, prior to my arrival in Washington D.C., during the debate on Iraq, a lot of leaders of nations around the world were all looking at the same intelligence. And, you know, that's not a do-over, but I wish the intelligence had been different, I guess.
GIBSON: If the intelligence had been right, would there have been an Iraq war?
BUSH: Yes, because Saddam Hussein was unwilling to let the inspectors go in to determine whether or not the U.N. resolutions were being upheld. In other words, if he had had weapons of mass destruction, would there have been a war? Absolutely.
GIBSON: No, if you had known he didn't.
BUSH: Oh, I see what you're saying. You know, that's an interesting question. That is a do-over that I can't do. It's hard for me to speculate. Link
We heard more Nixon tapes this past week. Even Nixon with all his profanity and paranoia was not the true prick that George W. Bush is.
In the short exchange with Gibson, Bush lied openly twice. The issue of Iraq was NEVER about whether Saddam had dangerous weapons....virtually everyone thought that he did. "Faulty" intelligence had nothing whatsoever to do with Bush's decision to invake Iraq. Bush, and his mouthpieces, repeatedly sold Americans on the lie that Saddam was a THREAT to America. That was the lie, and now over half of the nation knows it was a lie.
And that is why Bush could say this in 2005 on FOX....
BUSH: I said I made the right decision. Knowing what I know today, I would have still made that decision.
HUME: So, if you had had this — if the weapons had been out of the equation because the intelligence did not conclude that he had them, it was still the right call?
BUSH: Absolutely. Link
The second Bush lie here is this,..."because Saddam Hussein was unwilling to let the inspectors go in to determine whether or not the U.N. resolutions were being upheld." That is a lie.
This from March 17, 2003...
"Late last night ... I was advised by the U.S. government to pull out our inspectors from Baghdad," ElBaradei told the IAEA's board of governors.
ElBaradei, who has been monitoring the situation day to day, also confirmed that he and Blix had received an invitation from Baghdad "to visit Iraq with a view toward accelerating the implementation of our respective mandates." He did not say whether he or Blix had accepted.
"I should note that in recent weeks, possibly as a result of increasing pressure by the international community, Iraq has been more forthcoming in its cooperation with the IAEA," he said, adding that inspectors still have found no evidence that Saddam Hussein has revived his nuclear program. Link
Little cowpoke W. likes to state that 'history' will vindicate his presidential
History won't be kind to W., nor will it be kind to those Rubber Stampers and Knee Padders who gave such a bad man their unwavering support. George W. Bush's presidency will be unveiled in all it's horror in future history books and the one overarching question that will be posed will be, "Why in the hell didn't America impeach this criminal?"
