25 billion dollar trick that failed

http://lowrentrat.blogdrive.com /

THIS IS JUST PLAIN STUPID

Last week the Administration sent in a request of 25 billion dollars in additional funds for the war in Iraq. These funds would be used to help buy equipment that is desperately needed.

However the slapnuts in the White House were their usual sloppy selves dated the request so that the funds actually kick in over a YEAR FROM NOW in Oct 2005!!!!!

Thank God the Center for American Progress picked up on this mistake and alerted the officials in Washington.

Were the assholes grateful? NO, they ripped the Center saying:

"They might want to try turning the lights out a little earlier over there"

To paraphrase the Center's spokesman David Sirota:

It's not a fucking term paper assholes! Its our troops lives!!!!

This is TYPICAL of the assbackwards way this Administration is handling the war!

They did not send in enough troops.

They did not send our boys with enough equipment.

They DO NOT have an exit plan.

This is pathetic.

1. I found the source of the quote
Edited on Sat May-15-04 12:41 PM by Eric J in MN
That blog has a quote:

"They might want to try turning the lights out a little earlier over there."


It's from Chad Kolton of the Office for the Management of the Budget.

Kolton is being paid by the taxpayers, he gets a year wrong (unless he's lying), and he ridicules the people who noticed the curious year.
