Richard Mellon Scaife Paper Questions Bush Mental Stability
Edited on Mon Jul-16-07 09:18 AM by RamboLiberal
-----

President Bush warns that U.S. withdrawal would risk "mass killings on a horrific scale." What do we have today, sir?

And quite frankly, during last Thursday's news conference, when George Bush started blathering about "sometimes the decisions you make and the consequences don't enable you to be loved," we had to question his mental stability.

If the president won't do the right thing and end this war, the people must. The House has voted to withdraw combat troops from Iraq by April. The Senate must follow suit.

Our brave troops should take great pride that they rid Iraq of Saddam Hussein. And they should have no shame in leaving Iraq. For it will not be, in any way, an exercise in tail-tucking and running.

2. For a guy who spent the 90's setting the table for Bush Republicanism,
I have a hard time caring what Richard Mellon Scaife thinks.

4. Well welcome to the party. You're quite late, you know. A lot of
us know the guy was nuts from the get-go...

<snip>

Perhaps Jack Murtha put it best: The Pennsylvania congressman, among the first to make the cogent argument that staying the course in Iraq was the exercise in futility that indeed the war has become, says President Bush is delusional.

Based on the president's recent performance, we could not agree more. "Staying the course" is not simply futile -- it is a prescription for American suicide.

5. They didn't have some kind of liberal conversion
there's something else at work here for the Tribune. They may well see the war now as going against conservative principles or something. It damn sure ain't because they're good people. Or, maybe there's some money for them to make somewhere if the troops leave. It's anything but the right thing to do for the Mellon-Scaife folks.

6. Gosh, Richard.
Is this a case of be careful what you wish for?

Buyer's remorse, Richard?

Trust funds are clearly insufficiently taxed.

7. What's the exact number of deaths that crosses over from merely insane
to HORRIFIC?

Whatever that number is, we've long since reached it.

9. Another Shark Has Jumped...
The problem is these fuksticks think he's being too "consilatory" and has gotten weak since we haven't nuked Iran into glass or rounded up 12 million hispanics and railroaded them across the Rio Bravo.

10. That Would Be in Character--and Totally Frightening, Indeed
It surely isn't out of some newly-awakened principles of democracy, freedom, brotherhood, fairness, or fiscal responsibility, that's for damn sure. It isn't the rule of law--they trashed that with Clinton's impeachment.

I guess it's Iran--that's the only thing W hasn't done for his masters.
