Well, we remember, and hopefully blacks do as well, because it epitomizes these weasels' approach to every damn thing. That was as shitty and cynical as it gets.
But the current righteous squeals of indignation are eerily harmonious, are they not? At least we know that Karl Rove's autofax is working.
Exactly. This is shaping up to be, amazingly, an even bigger shell game than we'd supposed four months ago. That's pretty bad when these assholes can confound even our impossibly lowered expectations.
Redefining terms and moving goalposts around to suit the story du jour has been part and parcel of Iraq policy already, obviously, but these cheap tactics have really hit their stride in domestic policies, particularly SS privatization. How many different terms have been marketed just in the last four months? Three? Four?
They haven't been able to keep their story straight for more than a week at a time throughout this mess of a marketing campaign, but the Democrats are the bad guys for not just grabbing their ankles the moment Himself clears his throat.
I thought these people were anti-drug. What the fuck are they smoking?
There it is, the proverbial money shot, the heart of the current phase of the marketing bamboozle. Bush makes like he's throwing the peons a freakin' bone, and has the goddamned nerve to even insist it's on the backs of the Hiltons and Trumps. Nothing could be further from the truth. He's putting the squeeze on a rapidly dwindling American middle class, who really are bearing the brunt of paying the bills in this country anymore.
It's like when he took a plastic turkey to the troops in Iraq at Thanksgiving a couple years ago. It's just something to posture and preen in front of the cameras with; you're not supposed to actually scrutinize it.
Like most of what passes for policies from these crooks.
There ya go. You want to save Social Security and get rid of the deficit and help pay for this war that's cost $300 billion so far (with not a speck of return in terms of actual oil)? Repealing just half the tax cuts would accomplish almost all of this; it would certainly go a long way toward that.
If you didn't know better, you might almost think that someone might be profiting somehow by this nation's perennial indebtedness. Why not make it more by having a big giveaway to Wall Street, on your dime?
Bobo and his fellow nematodes won't have to worry about the future; their careers of deceit and bullshit will ensure that they are provided with nice sinecures from the occupants of the boots they've licked. The rest of us do not have the option of relying on distributors of thick envelopes.
