The End of the Bush Administration?



The Bush administration suffered yet another political blow, thanks to the collapse of the Dubai Ports deal. Bush's painfully low approval ratings may have pushed many GOP Congressmen to oppose the deal, despite Bush's veto threat. Being an election year, this isn't all too surprising. This latest debacle solidifies the idea of Bush's White House being incompetent.

Incompetence has been the theme of the Bush administration since being re-elected. He failed miserably on social security reform, despite his national tour promoting it. He pissed off his wingnut base by nominating Harriet Miers, a seemingly qualified attorney who wasn't conservative-enough. The far-right hated her so much, that they denied her the "up-or-down vote" they have been so vociferous about! Bush ignored warnings about Katrina's potential devastation, possibly leading to FEMA not having the resources to be at the scene in time. At the moment, he's shifting blame to Congress for the lack of progress in the rebuilding efforts, a tactic that implicates his fellow GOP (remember Congress is GOP-controlled). The Iraq mess is only getting worse, and now Iran appears to be in the cross hairs. How many days was Bush on vacation in Texas?

While the Democrats still must work hard to convert these failures into Congressional gains, the job is looking much easier these days. Could this be the end of the so-called conservative movement? I sure hope so because it sure hasn't worked!

Bye Bye Dubya!

Amen Brother!!!!

I'm still stumped on how the people of south-east Texas renominated DeLay. Hopefully these fools will wake up before the fall, but then again, south-east Texas is a KKK strong-hold with the wonderful towns of Vidor and Jasper. That will let you know what the mentallity is like down there.

Sure, his approval ratings are at record lows, and even many repubs are acknowledging his incompetence. BUT never underestimate these guys!! They have shown time & time again how ruthless they are capable of being! I wouldn't be surprised if we experienced another so-called "terrorist" attack soon which they can pin on the Iranians for an excuse for another war. Let's look beyond the nuclear issue too - as of March 20, Iran will be switching from Dollars to Euros for dealing their oil...and the Bush admin. does NOT want that, as it could severely damage us economically..can anyone take a wild guess on which country was the last one to try and make this switch from dollars to euros? Anyone..?

The KKK reference is invalid. The Klan is the terrorist wing of the Democratic party. I doubt that any klansmen still vote Democrat, but I doubt that they vote Republican either. Ask Robert Byrd about that if you don't beleive me. Most klansmen live in the midwest anyways, southeastern states like Texas and Alabama get unfairly portrayed as hotbeds for those lunatics, and it just isn't true.

If we do anything against Iran, it's going to be a strategic airstrike that shuts down their nuke programs. That will require no ground support whatsoever, and it will be very quick and well-supported by the international community. France is on board with the crackdown because they realize that Iran has missiles that could hit Paris.

I hate the klan for hundreds of reasons, one of them is because they are the SOLE reason why anybody could ever make a connection between the Confederate battle flag and racism.

BigNewsDay said...

I used the KKK reference to stir emotions. Neither of the cities i listd are even in DeLay's district.DeLay drew his district up to include parts of Houston with high property values and a lot of land houses numerous oil fields.

But Jasper and especially Vidor are known as havens for the klan. At one time, Vidor was the Texas HQ for the klan. Well over half the population was on Federal assisted housing, but 100% of the population was white.

Do some research into Vidor.

Oh, and David Duke was a Republican.

Axe, the confederate flag is associated with racism, because people associate the Civil War with slavery. The klan, as well as other redneck jackoffs, just solidify that association. I understand hat the Civil War was more about state's rights, and the growing control of the federal government, but the outlawing of slavery was the spark that ignited the war.

Military action against Iran quick and painless? Isn't that what we were told about Iraq?

You seem to be assigning motives to the GOp that just aren't there. Most of the GOP seemed to go against the bill because they didn't believe it was a good idea. I agree with them. I don't think that Bushs approval rating had anything to do with it.

Miers wasn't denied an up or down vote by anyone. She withdrew her nomination before it ever hit the Senate Committee. Denying up or down votes is a staple of the libtards in the Senate.

Bush may not have handled Katrina in the appropriate fashion, but to focus the blame solely on hium indicates a serious denial of reality. Federal, State and local government failed in Katrina. In my opinion State and Local performed in a much more incompetent fashion than the Feds...

I find the reference to Bush being on vacation to be the weakest point of your arguement... I assume that it is in reference to the wildly inaccurate and debunked piece of shit article from WaPo a couple of years ago...

The Democrats must do more than work hard. They've got to set down the Chivas, stop boinking the interns and actually show up to work once in a while. Once they do that, they can work on actually putting out a message that consists of something other than - "We'd do it differently than Bush but we can't tell you more than that"

Fucking barking moonbats

Close but not quite - The spark for the War of Northern Agression was the Union moving into South Carolina after secession to clean out Fort Sumter.

Oh and David Duke wasn't elected, was he? How many terms has Robert "Grand Cyclops" Byrd served?

crallspace said...

I must agree... I sure hope so too.

Conservatism is akin to nazism, just by the mention of the word... thank Bush and his nutcase following for that.

Osgiliath said...

Crall - You've got that backwards. Conservatism is the polar opposite of Nazism. Liberalism with it's big brother government system comes much closer to Nazism or Stalinism than does conservatism.

crallspace said...

Osgiliath,

How are you going to call Liberalism BIG BROTHER govt. in light of Bush's illegal spy program and the fascist pro-war propoganda the pentagon feeds us and Iraqi papers? The true liberals in congress are against this big Brother Bush environment, so I don't know how you say my notion is backwards.

kole said...

Ogilath or whatever that D&D dork's name is....

is still living in the Clinton years. Wake up you moron! To shift blame on the liberals proves what a dimwitted shitfuck you really are.

Osgiliath said...

Crall,

I've never claimed that Bush was a conservative. I've gone on record of accusing him of being a liberal many times before...

The true liberals in Congress are against anything that Bush is for. Being for the opposite of what someone else stands for is a good way to lose elections - look to 2000, 2002, 2004 and probably 2006 for examples of this.

Kole,

Are you serious? D&D dork? Try reading sometime; Osgiliath was a massive city in the Lord of the Rings. I'm sorry that I'm well read, but that's no excuse for ignorance.

I haven't heard the term dork since middle school. Are you 12 years old and stuck in 1988?

How have I passed the blame for any wrongs in the gov't to the Dems? I've accurately pointed out that they can't rest on their laurels, fucking fat assed interns and blame Bush for everything and expect to win national elections. It's not going to happen. They've got to come out and explain how what they plan to do will be different from the policies of Bush.

If you disagree with that, that’s fine. I’m sorry to hear that you feel that finger pointing is a valid campaign platform. I don’t and I expect the Dems and Republicans to do better.

Oh and my handle here is Osgiliath - try learning how to copy and paste if you are incapable of typing, moron.
