A recent AP-Ipsos poll found that only 47% of Americans believe that Iraq is likely to become a stable, democracy. This percentage is down from 55% in April. That is, American confidence in the Bush misadventure in Iraq has fallen below the half-way point. How fifty percent of the American people can possibly still think Bush is doing a good job in Iraq is a great mystery.
'Those most likely to have lost faith in the chances of a stable, democratic Iraq are those with college degrees, Southerners, homeowners, city-dwellers, Catholics, independents and Democrats.’ 'Juan Cole
Comment: This leaves trailer park denizens, tongue-talkers and the differently-abled. Republicans all!
The Voice of the White House - December 9, 2004
”Bush is doing himself no service with this Kerik business. This was Rudy Giuluani’s quid pro quo for helping Bush in his campaign. Bernie is a street thug and when you put creeps like him around money you have a formula for disaster. As head of Homeland Security, Bernie will be able to really feather his nest. Every one of his agents will have to have a Taser and he and Rudy are financially involved with that company…and others with whom DHS expects to do extensive business. Of course, Bush himself is far from honest (if he ever visited my house and I let him in, I would keep a close watch on the silver spoons).
Well, by now you have read over the smallpox material. Frightening, isn’t it? If you post it (you will have to cut it down somewhat) there will be those who scream that it is all lies. Most of the facts are up on Google except for the salient fact that our vaccine is worthless. When that comes out and when the public realizes that Bush has been having all of his staff, rich supporters and key people vaccinated and to hell with the rest of us, there will be real dung flying into the fan….The forthcoming Imperial Inaugural in January is a terrible, tasteless farce. The Bush people are extorting millions out of the rich boobery for “Special Moments” with God’s Anointed. A quarter of a million buys you the esteemed honor of having Bush himself and his Stepford wife actually stop by your table, shake your hand and hope he remembers your name. God, can’t you see the pictures in your local paper? Of course a White House photographer will snap the Imperial couple as it stops by your table and copies will go to the Bad Seepage Daily Movement so all your friends at the country club can eat their hearts out. This will be the most lavish ceremony in the history of the United States and at a time when Bush and his wife ought to be visiting hospitals and giving signed pictures and a piece of old candy to mangled young GIs.
This is exactly the sort of thing that went on in France just before the Revolution. Bush hasn’t a clue, believe me. Some of the professionals here in the White House are getting nervous and wondering about job changes. There are indeed a few political pros here, mixed in with the fascistic neocons and the Jesus Freaks but we are badly outnumbered.”
