Bush is "ticked off big time" - but not at North Korea

According to the Daily News, Bush is furious with Mark Foley and other Republicans for helping to create a political downdraft that has blunted his momentum and endangered Republican prospects for keeping control of Congress next month.

Momentum? What momentum?

"There's steam coming out of his ears over the Foley thing," someone who talks to the President regularly said. "The base is starting to get turned off again."

Oh no! How can we turn them on again? Maybe Mark Foley would know.

And while Bush publicly claims to support House Speaker Dennis Hastert, sources say he thinks Hastert and other GOP House leaders bungled their handling of the Foley affair and look like they're attempting a coverup.

No! A coverup?

Some of Bush's anger is also directed toward former aides who fed Bob Woodward material for his new book, "State of Denial," which exposes the Bush administration as dysfunctional and chaotic. "He's ticked off big-time," said one source, "even if what they said was the truth."

"Even if"? You mean "even though"?

Despite all the bad news, sources say Bush remains defiantly resolute. He will campaign relentlessly in the next month and has told friends he's determined to prove Democrats and media enemies wrong on Election Day.

As a certain defiantly resolute president once said, "Bring it on!"

Hey Big Ed,

Here's some red hot ink for your pen. Now help me vanquish the sword!

This Foley fiasco has given people the chance to change the make-up of this government, which will ultimately lead to the end of the Bush-Cheney reign. It may not be pretty, but it is a gift, nonetheless. Don't waste this advantage. Use it wisely to end the more pressing problems that face us all.

Want to better understand some of the desperation among top Christian politicos? Want to know what else they are pretending not to know about? Follow the links and read about who I am and what I have to say. Notice that my last name is Page? Think this "page" scandal is a mere coincidence? The timing and ramifications are much worse than most realize yet.

If Christian political leaders are going to go around attacking others for not living up to their professed values, it's a damn good idea to be truthful and actually walk the walk. Logs and motes in the eye, camels through the eye of a needle, glass houses, kettles and pots, and what goes around comes around, et al. Karma's a bitch when She finally decides enough is enough! This wouldn't have been so bad on Republicans if they hadn't been such arrogant hypocrites in order to corner the so-called values voters! Now the "Two Candlesticks" and "Two Witnesses" (Truth and Justice) are "breathing fire" and "raining hailstones!"

Christian Political Leadership, Hypocrisy, Duplicity, and Purposeful Evil

The current scandal involving Congressman Foley is merely the latest in an amazingly long list of blatant deception and duplicity by Republicans and the Christian Right in recent years. While bedeviling us all with their holier-than-thou pretenses, they consistently support and/or perform blatant greed and abominable evil. Never forget the extent of their arrogance over the last two decades and especially the last 6 years. It is beyond amazing that Christians continue to blindly support such obviously blatant scoundrels, even as they are repeatedly exposed going against the most basic of human values. The level of hypocrisy and duplicity boggles the mind. There is no longer any doubt, whatsoever, that Christianity is little more than a purposeful deception used by political and religious leaders to dupe, manipulate, and coerce entire populations into giving them wealth and power, which they always use for greed, injustice, and abominable evils.

The actions of Foley and those who covered up for him directly parallel the actions of scores of priests that have raped innocent children, preyed upon others for centuries, and had their actions hidden and abetted by the Vatican. Now, in eerie repetition of Vatican history, we have a power hungry Christian Emperor (GW) working closely with the Vatican and Judeo-Christian aristocrats to lead crusades in the so-called Holy Land. Furthermore, to leave little doubt about the reality of this assessment, the USA, as the new Holy Roman Empire, is about to legalize the torture it has perpetrated in recent years while steadily reversing many of the democratic and civil freedoms that people gained when the Vatican and royalty lost control of their European empire at the turn of the nineteenth century. Now we see them following the same old path of evil as they strive to cement the status of the USA as the latest proxy Vatican empire. Make no mistake about it, the new dark ages are looming on the horizon unless we do something proactive to prevent it.

Remember that those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it!

Seven Star Hand: The U.S. as a "proxy Vatican empire"...interesting. Do you really think we can "do something proactive to prevent it," or are we doomed to repeat history over and over and over again, until the sun explodes?

nolocontendre: Yes, that base - the TFM. (Love your blog!)
