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?

I've always thought Bush's presidency was like Daddy's second chance. If not for Daddy, for Daddy's friends.

Cosmik Voyager: Oh it's definitely Daddy and Daddy's friends. But this is the most blatant display I've seen yet, that shows there's absolutely nobody home at the White House. He fights to the death for this deal, and then it turns out that the deal was made without him even being aware of it. He's just a dancing marionette, and it's more obvious than ever now.

Don't forget, Tom: this is just another example of "libs" showing that THEY are the true racists!

Mike V.: Oops, that's right. Our true colors have been revealed. I confess -- Liberals are the true racists.

Some of you may remember the Reagon 80's in which there was this hue and cry over the Japenese and the Arabs buying up everything in the country. "They were going to own everything", "There goes our American Way of life","There goes our National Security", "American for Americans".

Never mind in the list of Foreign Investors the Arabs and the Japanese were WAY below the British, French, Ducth, Canadians and Germans.

In the end we decided we COULD live with their money after all and an Innocent Man got killed http://www.asianweek.com/061397/feature.html

Ahhh the Arabs: We don't like their religion, their customs or their food. All their countries are ruled by royalty who buys off the extremist so they can keep thier power.

Face it - we only like their Oil, So we have a president who makes deals with some - villifies and invades the rest and says we have to reduce our dependance of their Oil. I AM CONFUSED.

So which Arabs are these - the ones that line our pockets but send money to terrorist or the type that have no oil and also support terrorist?

Erik: Yup, it's confusing. The weirdest thing about this story, for me, was the contrast -- Bush being Hell-bent to push this deal through and even veto any attempt to nullify it, and then finding out that Bush wasn't even aware of this deal until after the fact. Everyone knows he's just a puppet, but this was just so blatant. He might as well have "This Space For Rent" tattooed across his forehead.

Who knows who the real players are. Halliburton helped Iran with their nukes, and now we're about to invade Iran because they have nukes. The Arabs will be guarding our ports. Who's on first?

I am also mystified by how adamant Bush is on this deal despite his not even knowing about it until just before the furor started up. Why should he be so determined to see the deal through, and what is it that we are not being told?

One reason I desperately want Bu$hCo's spawn to be defeated in 2008 is that once he and his buddies are out of power there should be all kinds of good "tell-all" books about the administration's corruption. Without the oppressive folks in office, authors won't have quite so much fear of reprisals from the government. We have seen a few books already that have been uncomplimentary to the Bush regime, written by people who have seen the inner workings of the administration, but gee... maybe it be REALLY COOL if a bunch more of them started hitting the presses... maybe about one a month. There is surely plenty of material for such books, at least as much if not more than what came out of the Clinton years.

Snave: Yeah, it's almost chilling that Bush is so adamant about this, and it wasn't even his idea. I don't know who's pulling his strings -- the PNAC, or maybe somebody even more shadowy -- but they've sure got him by the shorthairs. He's in charge about as much as a Wal-Mart greeter is in charge of Wal-Mart's development plans.

The next round of tell-all books ought to be interesting. I hope they'll actually make a difference and not be just preaching to the choir.
