Maybe this explains why Bush is "inexplicably upbeat"
Speculation has run wild ever since the Washington Post reported that Bush and Rove seem "inexplicably upbeat" in the face of all the scandals claiming Republicans on the eve of the midterm elections. What do they know that we don't know? Is Bush planning an attack on North Korea or Iran? Has Diebold already fixed the outcome of the election? Is Rove going to find a way to postpone or suspend the election?
Or is Bush indifferent to losing control of the House and Senate...because...he's planning to move to Paraguay?
Don't laugh - at least two independent sources report rumors of a Bush family purchase of land in northern Paraguay. One of the sources, Prensa Latina, said:
"An Argentine official regarded the intention of the George W. Bush family to settle on the Acuifero Guarani (Paraguay) as surprising, besides being a bad signal for the governments of the region...Luis D Elia, undersecretary for the Social Habitat in the Argentine Federal Planning Ministry, issued a memo partially reproduced by digital INFOBAE.com, in which he spoke of the purchase by Bush of a 98,842-acre farm in northern Paraguay, between Brazil and Bolivia.
"D Elia considered this Bush step counterproductive for the regional power expressed by Presidents Nestor Kirchner, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, Evo Morales, Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro.
"He said that 'it is a bad signal that the Bush family is doing business with natural resources linked to the future of MERCOSUR.'
"The official pointed out that this situation could cause a hypothetical conflict of all the armies in the region, and called attention to the Bush family habit of associating business and politics."
Yeah, business and politics...and...avoidance of extradition for war crimes?
