David Brooks Says Bush & DeLay Were Never Close! Ha Ha Ha! >>>
Edited on Wed Sep-28-05 05:59 PM by Stephanie


They are already throwing DeLay overboard! David Brooks said, well first of all, they were never close. Bush's statement of support was meaningless - that's just the protocol when someone gets indicted. (my paraphrase) And anyway, DeLay is a bad leader.

LOL LOL LOL - BushCO sent David Brooks out to toss DeLay overboard!

(heard on NPR - All Things Considered)

34. I don't know how he can live with himself.
I wish News Hour would dump him. And where's Mark Shields? Did he just get tired of the lies?

3. Funny you should
mention giving Delay the boot.

White House simply called Delay an "Alliance"

4. Tom Who?
:rofl:

These guys spit on any idea of loyalty and will sell their own down the river in a heartbeat. But the pay is good, I hear.

26. Loyalty is a one way street for the * gang.
You better be loyal to them, but they don't need to be loyal to you.

Edited on Wed Sep-28-05 05:40 PM by FreedomAngel82
They're worse then the mafia! At least with them you know what you're getting yourself into. With Bush you don't. Maybe Tommy boy can spill some beans on things he knows to get revenge.

7. kinda like Kenny Boy and Ahmed Chalabi
One minute Kenny is on the short list for the Treasury Secretary, next minute, it's "Who?" One minute Chalabi is sitting next to Pickles at the SOTU, next minute, it's "Who?"

9. Sure. That's why Tommy got a plane ride with Jr. on Air Force 1!
Remember? The media was shilling the "Show of Support" from Mr. President!!!

Peace.

Brooks Has Been Throwing Bush Overboard Since NOLA!
He has flipflopped.

Here's a quote that stuck in my mind the other day from Meet The Press:

"Sometimes in my dark moments, I think Bush is the Manchurian candidate, programmed to discredit everything I believe in."

I was laughing my ass off at that one!

39. I used to find him tolerable.
Edited on Wed Sep-28-05 05:58 PM by bunkerbuster1
I looked forward to Friday nights on the Newshour when he and Mark Shields would have their civilized little takes on the week's events.

Then at the end of last year's Presidential campaign, in his column, he regurgitated a blatant lie that was circulating about something Kerry was perported to have said. I was pissed; I emailed him (as I'm sure many others did) and asked him to print a retraction.

And he did.

More than a week later. After the goddamned election.

Fuck Brooks.

13. Didn't * just today say that he considers Delay a "friend"?
I guess we should get the guest book for the taxpayer funded Delay circle jerk celebration that took place a few months ago.

How funny. I remember when this all first began at first the White House made that claim and then a few days later flipflopped and Bush said he considered Tommy a friend and they would stand by him. Oops! So much for the whole party unity thing. When someone is in trouble run away!

37. Did anyone tape Roy Blunt
He almost made a boo boo when he said that the party's agenda was bigger than... I thought he was about to say Tommy but he cut the sentence and continued. I'd love to hear that again.

30. Amazing how many of Bush's closest friends he really doesn't know well
Ken Lay, Tom Delay, Chalabi, James Bath, the head of SCI, his daughters (he never went to their trials or their graduations, though he did make some calls to get them released when they were arrested for shoplifting as minors.)

33. Remember December 2000 when Jenna had appendix surgery?
And Bush went on vacation to Florida anyway. Went golfing or fishing or something while his teenage daughter was in the hospital having major surgery. Laura stayed behind with her. George went on VACATION.

40. Yeah, makes me wonder who is avoiding whom.
There is something dysfunctional there. There is some reason the father consciously stays away from the daughters. One wonders if it is their wish, if something in their background was horrible enough to make them avoid him. Battery, abuse, simple lack of attention. Something much darker. Who knows? Alcoholic fathers aren't usually known for being good, attentive fathers.

32. I cannot begin to tell you how much I loathe David Brooks.
His reasoning ability is defective and his slavish adoration of
Bush and Co. is pathetic.

35. I am right there with you -
and I am dumbfounded that he has cornered the market - he represents the right on PBS, NPR, and the NY Times! He's a Weekly Standard/Bill Kristol neo-con and he has every pulpit to hawk their crap - WHY?

38. Yes, he is one of the official right wing gasbags and that
a sign of how weak their arguments really are. If you force yourself
to read his stuff every week you can see how he has no grip on
reality and no ability to venture outside the right wing thought
process.

I hate the NY Times for giving him a slot on their editorial pages.
In the interest of fairness they have diminished their own intellectual standing.
