Geldof: Western Press Refuses to Credit Bush for African Achievements
Just had to post this under “good news to ignore”. It’s a classic case. President Bush is off in Africa this week enjoying plaudits from numerous African political leaders for his efforts to modernize and improve health and human rights situations there. Just as they’ve done with positive Iraq news, however, the Western press is… Continue reading Geldof: Western Press Refuses to Credit Bush for African Achievements
I bet that hurt
Gwynne Dyer looked at Bush’s middle east trip and decided that, this time, he coudn’t blame the fact it wasn’t going to succeed on Bush. Even so, he concluded… He has done great damage further east with his invasion of Iraq, and the Arab world will be dealing with the Islamist radicals whose cause he… Continue reading I bet that hurt
That Bush guy still has some answering to do
Frog blogs on Bush, and as is normal for the left, riddles his post with errors of various sorts: Bush blew the massive deficit he inherited from Clinton on tax cuts for the rich, corporate welfare and the war (US$2trillion). The inequality of the tax cuts is staggering: I think they mean surplus – how… Continue reading That Bush guy still has some answering to do
Bush – Nothing to do with Kyoto
NewsBusters reminds us that Kyoto was soundly rejected by the US long before Bush came to power. The Treaty was agreed upon on December 11, 1997, opened for signatures by countries wishing to participate on March 16, 1998, and closed for such signatures on March 15, 1999. It appears AFP – and, since this is… Continue reading Bush – Nothing to do with Kyoto
Bush bashed, but He still finds humour long after the joke is gone
You know, Bush bashing was ok when it started. We could all go along with the joke that Bush “wasn’t quite all there”. We all know he stumbles in his speeches and ad-hoc answers at times, but we all know that we’d do worse if put in the same position. So it was sort of… Continue reading Bush bashed, but He still finds humour long after the joke is gone
Bush Bashing, but not as we know it.
Bashing Bush is becoming so common, pretty soon there’ll be 3 sections in libaries. Fiction, Non-Fiction and Bush Bashing. Seriously, everyone’s doing it and they’re all more incoherent than the last one. But if this clip is anything to judge by, we’re nearing the point (rather like Moore’s Law) where the laws of physics take… Continue reading Bush Bashing, but not as we know it.
We Have Forgotten
Six years ago, I went to bed after a day that was just like any other. I have no idea what I did that day – the 9th of September was a day like any other. But the following morning, I woke and turned on the radio. I heard the World Trade Centre had been… Continue reading We Have Forgotten
Why can no one cartoon Bush?
Murray Webb is a brilliant artist. His caricatures capture the features of his subjects brilliantly, and aside from the evil smirk, his portrayal of Karl Rove below is spot on. But even the great Webb cannot capture Bush. This version looks more like Reagan. I’ve seen them look like prince Charles and something the cat… Continue reading Why can no one cartoon Bush?
Disgraceful Media Behaviour
This is disgraceful. At the press conference to say farewell to Rove, Bush and Rove hug, turn away from the camera. At this moment, some idiot in the press gallery chooses to call out”If he’s so smart, how come you lost Congress?”. What a disgrace. We conservatives expect very little from the MSM, and boy… Continue reading Disgraceful Media Behaviour
