Is Bush taking/being given credit for the "liquid death" plot bust?
I am not near a TV so I can't really watch the coverage but I understand that ABC has pre-empted their normal shows (the "stories") to cover this. Someone even got W into a suit to speechify on it (was he on his way to a fundraiser or political event?).

Anyone? Anything?

Are we going to now hear about how bravely W single handedly saved us by letting the Brits bust this ring up?

Do we have a new midterm issue- Do you support your badass President OR NOT?

:eyes: :crazy:

Please tell me they aren't giving W the credit on this.

1. I don't see why not.
They gave him credit for bombing Zarqawi, and he wasn't anywhere near it, and didn't know anything about it.

3. So there is no attempt by W or his minions to swoop in and take credit?

5. only for "cooperation"
there was great cooperation between their government and ours. And there was great cooperation between different agencies in our government. Great cooperation. And we're giving officials the tools they need to keep us safe.

But no, no real overt attempt, yet, to claim direct credit--crowd the podium and get some reflected glory, perhaps ...

4. From the audio clip I heard he IS taking credit
He is trying to keep all Americans safe. He said it himself today. So he foiled the plot I guess. Whatever.

Now he's off to fuckwad John Gard's fundraiser... Nothing like lying before you go shill for an insane right wing liar.
