Laura Bush lends support to GOP leader in Foley scandal
GREECE, N.Y. -- For a second time this month, first lady Laura Bush traveled Saturday to upstate New York to drum up support for House GOP campaign chief Tom Reynolds, whose once-safe district looks vulnerable in the upcoming election.

"Go to the phone banks, knock on those doors and talk to your friends and neighbors ... about all of New York's great Republicans," Mrs. Bush, flanked by Reynolds and fellow U.S. Rep. Randy Kuhl, told several hundred Republican faithful in suburban Rochester.

...(S)tate Republican chairman Steve Minarik issued a "don't let them steal our Congress" rallying cry. But Bliss acknowledged that Reynolds' fate is uncertain. "It seems like it's 50-50," he said.
...
Reynolds and Kuhl "appreciate our troops' sacrifice" in Iraq, (Mrs. Bush) said. "They understand that this election is critical to the future of our country."

12. Republicans do the UNconscionable.. Democrats must be the conscience for the country..
Laura does the unthinkable.
She campaigns for another suspect who may have cause for investigation.

5. Election
This election truly is crucial to the survival of our country. Maybe we can start to fix the mess the republicans have made. Torture, spying on innocent Americans, arrested because they speak the truth. Jailed without recourse. Hell yes this election is crucial it might keep us from becoming a complete dictatorship.

6. Hiding Behind A Librarian's Skirts?
Is that all women are good for--bailing out the foolish men in their circle?

Laura is no less a tool than any other member of this conspiracy.

8. Good thing.........
the New York elections can't be stolen by Diebold. New York "missed" the HAVA deadline for changing to touch-screen machines for the mid-term elections. We'll be voting on the "old" reliable lever machines that have served New York so faithfully over the years. So.......Reynolds has every right to be scared. A few lines of code aren't going to help him here in New York as they will for Reslugs over the rest of the country. ;) Worry, Tom. Worry a LOT!

13. Laura: "Georgie and I had to protect Jeff Gannon, too."
Edited on Sat Oct-28-06 03:33 PM by SpiralHawk
So we have a great deal of sympathy for other republicon crony Pervert Protectors, like Hasty. I have a nice idea: Why don't you all just shut up and sit down and meditate on Bill Clinton having sex in the Oval Office with a consenting adult (though not with Stud Boy Jeff Gannon, who belongs to me and Commander AWOL).

17. She'll do anything to help keep the rethugs in office.




Because she knows two years from now her old man is going to jail.
