HIGHTOWER: Bush's Bubble

By Jim Hightower, AlterNet
December 2, 2003

Did you happen to see the dignity with which the Italian people honored their 19 soldiers who were killed in an attack in Iraq? All 19 coffins were draped in the Italian flag, Italy's president was present for a moving ceremony, and there was a day of national mourning.


Contrast this show of dignity to our White House's cold avoidance of any public mourning of the more than 400 coffins that have come back to our country from George W's war in Iraq. Bush handlers say they don't want him seen with the coffins of our dead soldiers, for that would be "off message." Rather, the Bushites are pushing a cheery message, proclaiming that things are going according to plan in Iraq, with great progress being made in our glorious occupation.

so does this and should any person with loved ones i n Iraq, and now I am one

Not only do the Bushites stay on message, but their right-wing media apologists also try to put a smiley face on our losses there, as do George's congressional parrots. For example, one of the blathering GOP congress critters, George Nethercutt of Spokane, recently went to Iraq on the taxpayer's dime for four days. He then returned and dutifully offered this brilliant insight: "The story of what we've done in Iraq is remarkable. It is a better and more important story than losing a couple of soldiers every day."

Methinks that Mr. Bush never would have gotten elected if there wasn't a term limit that ended Clinton's time in office. And methinks you know that, diamond. And methinks it bugs ya a little.

No term limits? We'd still have Reagan in office!

One of the beauties of the USA though is we are a Democratic Republic and not a kingdom frustrating a few social elites

Ahhh yes...another coffin post. Nice to see we are treating the President differently than every other President in office. I again point to the research presented earlier in the thread. There is NO history of American Presidents doing anything like this. I hate to burst your bubble.



Of course....I maybe I was wrong....Clinton was good at attneding the funerals of the relatives of campain donors as I demonstrated earlier... Maybe he would have been a three term president.

Its seems that Jim Hightower from Alter-Net can't quote people correctly either....LOL seems to be a habit amongst the left.....

[Q]"The story of what we have done in the postwar period is remarkable, because the coalition has been rebuilding power plants, police stations, schools and other infrastructure, as well as taking early steps toward self-governance. So the story is better than we might be led to believe in the news. I'm indicting the news people. It's a bigger and better and more important story than losing a couple of soldiers every day, which, which, heaven forbid, is awful."[/Q]

He is saying what a friend of mine recently would not do. He would NOT turn on the news. He just returned from Iraq. he is redeploying back to Iraq soon and will not watch the news. He did for about a week, and says that they are not accurately depicting the work that is being done. He has sionce refused to pick up a newspaper or turn on the TV.

I do not know...but I resigned from the party and my elected position because I disagree with manner in which the case was made for war at the UN and the case that was made to the US people. I also resigned due to the fact that I disagree with the party leaderships position on recognizing homosexual civil unions.


what made you think I was a republican?
