Rush just told me it is the media's fault that W didn't talk UAE out of it
I think that is what I just heard. It still doesn't make any sense.

It seems that Good Morning America lead with a "sources say" story this morning that W used his worldliness and tough business acumen to talk UAE into dropping their interest in the ports deal. This story that must have been crafted in the middle of the night to show how concerned, involved, and in-touch W is was not reported correctly. GMA apparently made it seem like it was just done to save political face. The implication that is just sitting there right in front of everyone-that W really is connected and concerned with Daddy's friends in the Middle East- was not mentioned by GMA or by Rush.


This was really funny to listen to. The RW spin is spun around on them and they are (Army term) "ATE UP"-they are so worried about screwing up they don't focus on what they are doing and....screw up more.

Rush also offered A (singular) editorial from a San Francisco paper that Dems ssshhh privately admit that the used fear and xenophobia and racism to kill this deal. Remember it wasn't W that killed it it was the Dems no wait it was the House Republicans no wait it was the media fanning the flames of hatred....oh yeah that's it the media is blaming the whole thing on W having fanned the flames of hatred and fear since 9/11 and the Dems and the media are working together to use this fear for political gain.

SO sayeth Rush.

"Okay Americans, I hear you... you don't want this. Let me just make sure it's okay with my masters... er um no wait I meant friends... my friends, before I do anything drastic."

5. Um...well on Yahoo the headline is saying Bush is upset that the
UAE deal didn't go through, and that it sends a "bad message." He said so publicly.

So Rush is simply lying again.
