Bush: “I Strongly Believe This. (They Told Me To Say That)”
Two conflicting stories are coming out of the White House. We’ve all heard that Bush feels very strongly about entrusting our port security to a firm from the United Arab Emirates. He’s so adamant about this that he’ll veto any law that attempts to overturn it.
Gotta hand it to him — George W. Bush is a man of strong convictions. Right? Well…
This other story seems a little contradictory. Bush didn’t even know about the sale of our port security to the UAE until after the deal was completed. He was completely out of the loop.
Ready, all together now: Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.
These two stories, taken together, are the clearest illustration yet that Bush is NOT running things. OK, that isn’t exactly a news bulletin, a bolt out of the blue, but now it's more blatant than ever.
Who are Bush’s puppetmasters, and how many of them does he have? He’s an expert at staying “On Message,” but does he actually have any beliefs or convictions of his own? He’s facing the biggest backlash of his career. Who’s making him do this?
