"...public opinion deserves to be respected as well as despised" G.W.F. Hegel, 'Philosophy of Right'

Bush administration under seige « Previous | |Next »
April 30, 2006

Tony Walker, writing from Washington for the Australian Financial Review, says that Americans are deserting president Bush in droves, as the 'President's approval rating continues its downward spiral'. So it is highly unlikely that bringing in Tony Snow, a conservative Fox News commentator, as the new press secretary will turn around the public perceptions of the wheels coming off the Bush Administration:

Walker goes to say that:

The situation will become bloodier still, if the Democrats regain control of the House of Representatives and/or the Senate, since this would prompt a deluge of subpoena-driven inquiries into the administrations many questionable activities: from its management of a deeply corrupted reconstruction process in Iraq to its decision to authorize the National Security Agency to engage in secret spying on American citizens ..... Then there is the whole issue of how the US decided to go to war in the first place---on the basis of, now as it seems clear, cherry-picked intelligence.

And there are the secret CIA prisons established outside the US to incareate terrorists supects without trial and to interrogate them using torture.

Hell, even Rolling Stone, the old liberal music magazine that switched to supporting President Reagan,is now running articles that say Bush may well be the worst ever President.

So I cannot see why the Bush people is getting excited about the appointment of a new White House Press Secretary. Maybe Snow will improve media relations. So what? The administration is now dysfunctional. It is the 'Mission Accomplished in Iraq' of three years ago that stands as the symbol of the Bush administration.

Gary.Bush and members of his administration are barking mad.When I see this man Bush give a press conference I think to myself "Some ones gotta be taking the piss"I think "My God how did this man become the president of a country, that could turn every country outside of mainland U.S. into a car park.Then the penny drops and I come back to the reality of knowing,that half of the media that controls the freak show called the U.S. government is just as loony.Have you ever checked out the Fox News network?The right wing loon tunes that inhabit this Asteroid,beggars belief.This media megolith is in tune with every thing that comes out of the white house.If Tony Snow says"Stalin is responsible for hurricane Katrina, Fox will run with it and spin it faster than a juggler on speed.

What really gives me a chuckle is the so called political pundits try to seriously analyze the political motives of Bush get into his mind so to speak "what a hoot".This man and the party that supports him are down right dangerous,I hope the American people have seen through this little experiment they have had with these right wing extremists and get back to being the great country it once was.

Phll,
you may find this transcript of some satire in the form of a monologue by Steve Colbert, by Comedy Central’s faux talk-show host, at the White House Correspondents Dinner of interest.

Some more links here.

It is a comedy “tribute” to President Bush. Colbert, who spoke in the guise of his talk-show character, who ostensibly supports the president strongly.

Bush was not amused.

Gary.Yes I did read some of Colberts, I assume un-intentional assasination of Bush.I thought parts of it were very funny.But hey you have fooled me once or is that twice,or is that Im just a southern boy at heart and don't know shit, that Colberts supported Bush.Are you taking the piss.?I love it when Bush has got the shits on it sticks out further than my dogs bollicks.
Phill.
