What He Said

We need to monitor, very, very closely, the machinations emitting from certain quarters of the Executive Branch through the end of Bush's term. There are many smart, honest, fair, moderate Republicans fighting the good fight internally, the Mora's have shown us, and we need to do our part to bolster them however and whenever possible. The stakes are too high, and some of the key players, alas, we've now learned beyond any doubt, will stoop to very mendacious behavior indeed in pursuit of their misguided goals.

Read the rest here.

Especially since there might have been some sort of "secret agreement" between the WH and Dubai Ports World which seems a little off....,,-5640688,00.html

The administration did not require Dubai Ports to keep copies of business records on U.S. soil, where they would be subject to court orders. It also did not require the company to designate an American citizen to accommodate U.S. government requests. Outside legal experts said such obligations are routinely attached to U.S. approvals of foreign sales in other industries.


What is with the fuzzy language like ``to the extent possible'' and ``all reasonable steps''?????

Under the deal, the government asked Dubai Ports to operate American seaports with existing U.S. managers ``to the extent possible.'' It promised to take ``all reasonable steps'' to assist the Homeland Security Department, and it pledged to continue participating in security programs to stop smuggling and detect illegal shipments of nuclear materials.

Oh really? Did they vote for Bush in 2000? Did they then turn around and vote for him again in 2004? Sorry. They lose the privilege of being called "smart, honest, fair and moderate."

In another era, perhaps they would have their heads shaved, and be paraded through the streets as collaborators.

Lou Dobbs talks about the Bush Family connections with the UAE.

-major investor of the Carlyle Group
-Neil Bush received financing from UAE for his educational sw company

-don't forget John Snow and David Sanborn that Bush chose.

I read several articles about good Republicans trying to save our Democracy and the rule of law, but the radicals appears to be capable of saying and doing anything, and so far have not been held accountable.

Impostor : How George W. Bush Bankrupted America and Betrayed the Reagan Legacy, by Bruce Bartlett who worked in the Reagan WH.

John Bogle, a Republican, wrote in his book, "The Battle For the Soul of Capitalism" wrote about the ugly side of radicalism and corruption, and its long-term consequences to society.

Christine Todd Whitman wrote "It's My Party, Too: The Battle For the Heart of the GOP and the Future of America.

I pray every night for moderate Republicans.

It ain't going to happen unless we hold politicians accountable - big time, get rid of the corruption, get rid of the endless money and pandering.

Oh, would that be the same Christine Todd Whitman who served as co-chair of George Bush's 2004 re-election campaign in NJ? The same woman under whose aegis the EPA, kowtowing to White House pressure, lied to New Yorkers about the air quality post 9-11? THAT Christine Todd Whitman? Oh, surely not! The Brave Christine Todd Whitman you speak of warns us against the danger and mendacity of hard-line far right conservatives! Where is this 'moderate' Ms Whitman of which you speak?

It isn't the peoples' government or our government, Bush says it's his government. Icks!

President Bush said, "the more people learn about the transaction that has been scrutinized and approved by my government, the more they'll be comforted that our ports will be secure."

Semper naile dit well. Bartlett, Whitman et al are very vocal now; where were they in 2004? They all miraculous woke up in November '04 and realised how inept Bush is?

Please, they all put party above country.

Wow, just read that even William F. Buckley has bailed on the Bush adventure in Iraq. At least some of the republicans are finally coming to their senses, albeit a bit late.

Doesn't it concern folks that we were told in 2003 the war would cost $1.7 billion and we have already spent $250 billion and they are asking for more. It is all deficit spending, borrowing from banks and foreign governments.

I think if Bush wanted a war so bad in Iraq (although he ran in 2000 agains Nation building), well maybe it is more Cheney pulling the strings, shouldn't we be paying for it now, doing it right, or would that cut into Bush's cronyism managment style?

I see they lowered the requirements for recruits again. I suppose if you are IED fodder... :-(

Isn't it embarrassing, no sad, to have people like Limbaugh and Coulter spray their hatred in the Republican party. How exactly does that make us better and stronger?

I long to hear good Republicans speak that are civil, respectful, and do we dare ask for, honest.

Cookie Roberts was on a talk show the other night, and she explains the civility the right and left had were the results of WWII, that everyone was together and we all sacrificed. But we are too divided today, too much corruption, and people are getting tax breaks instead of paying for the war.

GD from BD preferred Bush over Kerry, IIRC. He thought that a Kerry presidency would be an unmitigated disaster.
GD placed party loyalty above patriotism---sanity, even--in 2004. I do not respect his opinion now.
Impeach, and damn the GOP.
It deserves to die.
