John, Oh John, Go Away...

John McCain just spent several of the first minutes of his speech at the republican convention stating that the democrats believe in multi-state (international) collaboration as key to the war against terror. He then went on to say that this is what Republicans believe in. Liar. Liar. Liar. Empty, superficial liar. John McCain didn't just fall on his sword in NYC tonight, he used to cut out his own integrity. Republicans have *not once* agreed that international help is required in the war on terror--if anything, they boast (wrongly) that the United States doesn't need anyone's help. Well, less so nowadays, but during the initial days of the Iraq war, this was the credo waved about like a flag. John McCain has admirable qualities (even though he's a Republican), but tonight, he obviated them all. He justifies the war on Iraq based on the evil Saddam--implying that Democrats were blind and believed him to be innocuous and harmless. This view is, at best, disengenuous; at worst, it's a blatant attack on people that he *knows* do not believe this, and is a bald, obsequious defense of his cronies. Cronies who, in general, don't care too much for his involvement in the Republican party. John, oh John, where have you gone? Leave McCain alone, let him go his own way--the way of an apologist for those he used to revile. Goodbye John, and best of riddance to you, you useful shill for a hyper conservative party that simply trotted you out to help them win reelection. What happened to your steel? Your resolve? Your integrity. The Bush Team was wrong in doing what they did to you in South Carolina, and it is the same thing they do to the Democrats and, in general, the American people. Go away, John, sleep well in the knowledge that you have sold your soul tonight to the very people who avoid you in daily political life. Go away. A friend of John Kerry? Hardly. A brave American? Not anymore. Go away, John, just go away.

what part don't you get?

       




Here's what the U.S. can't do (under any administration):

  • stop racial and ethnic divisions
  • ensure security for it's citizens
  • provide healthcare
  • make democracy a reality
  • unify its people

    Hmmm. Why does anyone think that the U.S. can do that in Iraq? Shouldn't the countries in the region be responsible for this? Or hey, maybe even the Iraqi people?

    Decisions, Decisions: The Bush Administration Continues to Make Bad Ones Unabated...

    WASHINGTON, June 1 Ahmad Chalabi, the Iraqi leader and former ally of the Bush administration, disclosed to an Iranian official that the United States had broken the secret communications code of Iran's intelligence service, betraying one of Washington's most valuable sources of information about Iran, according to United States intelligence officials.

    "I'm a uniter, not a divider." [Bush, Austin American-Statesman, 7/30/00]

    Fact: No, He's a Divider

    "As Bush begins the final year of his term with Tuesday night's State of the Union address, partisans on both sides say the tone of political discourse is as bad as ever -- if not worse." One senior administration official said Bush could have built "trust and goodwill" by pursuing more broadly appealing initiatives. One former Bush aide said the White House "relished the 'us versus them' thing." [Washington Post, 1/18/04]

    When Bush took office three years ago, the budget SURPLUS was projected to be $5.6 trillion*. The budget DEFICIT over next 10 years if Bush's 2005 budget proposal is enacted $5.2 trillion.**
