The host of the show (Stephanie Miller, a manic woman but an acquired taste, in my estimation) cut away from the talking to go to a live Presidential press conference, one in which Bushie would probably read from his teleprompter the speech that someone else had written for his simianac self, one in which he would most likely call on God to show the victims' families mercy and strength in this tough time.
He must have been going off-the-cuff; I think he made his own speech, this time.
Half a minute after expressing his sympathies for the people who had been killed or come up missing in the collapse--half a minute!--the Curious One was off and running, laying ostensible blame at the feet of the Democaratic Congress for not getting Transportation bills signed and passed and so on. Hold on a second, Your Highness.
Aren't you the same jackass that has vetoed scores of bills and, basically, opposed Congress at pretty much every turn? Aren't you the (corrupt) moron who has invoked "Executive Privilege" with about five people who have been called to testify--by Congress, no less--in the firings of the eight U.S. attorneys?
Corruption and dishonor and disingenuousness drip from this Administration.
Would someone please begin the process of impeachment of both him and Cheney? In fact, throw out the whole lot. They're all covering each other's asses and in bed with Big Business. They care not a whit for the average American.
The $12,000 a second Iraq War price tag could be put to better use. How? Oh, I don't know. There are many ways, but here's one: I may be going out a limb, here, but how about putting the money that is being used to destroy any good grace we might have had in the Middle East and putting money that is birthing more Islamic hate and fanaticism to use here in...America? We could use it to--oh, I don't know--repair the crumbling infrastructure.
Many many bridges in the United States are either "structurally deficient" or now obsolete due to increased traffic and larger heavier vehicles.
I just couldn't believe what I was hearing when our "Leader" bounced, in the same breath, from mourning the tragedy of the bridge collapse right to pimping himself and his policies and denigrating the Democrats. It disgusted me. No one can be that moronically callous.
*Edit. Here is a link to the press conference: Hypocrite speaks. Um. "Fiscally-responsible" spending?! Are you fucking kidding me?! Take a look in the mirror, jerk-off.
