BUSH RE-ELECTION PLANS
Posted June 23, 2003
THE ONLY THING
THAT KEEPS THE BURNING BUSH UNDER CONTROL IS HIS NEED FOR RE-SELECTION. A one term Presidency is out of the question for W. He MUST best his old man
and set the tables for his baby brother. From the instant of his 5-4 Supreme
(?) Court "mandate" Boy George's only real concern has been the
2004 re-selection campaign. Maybe so he can get another shot at
"election" or maybe just so that he can take off the gloves and
finish us off once and for all.
CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT all the death and destruction visited on the country
and the planet has been a 'tempered' (by re-selection aspirations) George W.
Bush? If this resident could do the things he did the first time around,
packing the courts with right wing morons, lies, subverting the
Constitution, abridgement of our Civil Rights, intentionally collapsing our
economy, lying to Congress, the nation and the world, isolation of America
in the world, the destruction of a Sovereign country and the murder of her
people, the killing of American kids for fun and profit, the causing and
maintaining of permanent war, crushing dissent, destruction of the
environment, more lies, pulling out of international treaties, cutting
social programs, cutting military benefits, running the most secretive
American Government in history, sleeping with big oil and his friends that
put up the cash to get him to Washington, proliferation of nuclear weapons
and finally having the United Stated of America and the current
administration feared worldwide as the greatest threat to global peace. I
may have missed a few things, but we all know what he has been up to these
past two and a half years, an eternity in terms of destruction to the 250
year old American fabric he inherited.
HERE'S THE FRIGHTENING QUESTION: WHAT WOULD HE DO IN HIS SECOND FOUR YEARS
IF HE HAS NOTHING TO LOOSE? Now with Iraq safely tucked away and military
plans for phase II Iran unfold our humble but stupid President Select has
managed the time to announce his candidacy for re-election, like it comes as
a big surprise to us all I'm sure.
In recent "fundraisers", Bush and the Republican special interest
groups raised a whopping $22 million, more than quadrupling the money raised
by all nine Democrats combined thus far. The far right figures to double
last year's record haul, certainly a huge advantage in what promises to be a
close election, even if the Democrats field Mickey Mouse. What a race.
Mickey Mouse against Goofy!
A mid June 2003, a $2,000 a plate luncheon of hot dogs and beans netted
additional millions to what is expected to be a $200 Million war chest for
the '04 Presidential re-selection of GW Bush, which the GOP vows to accept
Federal matching money this time around, something they passed on in Y2K.
It's just hard to imagine $200M, a fifth of a Billion dollars for a
Presidential campaign. Historically, $25,000,000 was considered obscene.
Where is all this money coming from? What has Bush promised to those donors?
How much and what will this cost the American people if he wins.
When Bush talks however, there is a certain amount of risk. In a flash his
arrogance and combined ignorance can raise its ugly head. Recently he spoke.
(This was months AFTER the invasion of Iraq failed to turn up any of the
nasty weapons Bush claimed Iraq had "tons"). He said "I told
Saddam Hussein to disarm. He chose not to so we disarmed him." Is he
kidding? How would Saddam "disarm" if he had nothing? And exactly
what did they take away from him when they "disarmed" him? Latter
he said that we were missing the point. "The people of Iraq are
free" Interesting enough, considering the Iraqis have been denied the
right to vote, hold office, go to school, go anywhere for that matter, go
back to their jobs, protest, assemble, neither do they have the right to
medical attention or basic necessities of life like water, food and
electricity. How about a free press? Forget it! They're FREE alright, my
behind. And if the U.S began looking more like Iraq it wouldn't bother
Bushco at all.
But to be on the safe side, Rove hedged his bets by giving Bush strict
orders, just in case. Bush announced to the august crowd that he would
not be campaigning for himself and that his entourage would be campaigning
for him. "I have the important business of Government to tend to and my
time will be limited"
Baloney! Rove and company are trying to keep our fearless leader from
shooting himself in the foot. Rove likely told him to keep out of sight and
shut up! If pressed, nod politely, and if he must speak, say these words and
these words only. 9-11, Saddam Husein, Iraq, Osama and Al Queda. Rove and
company truly believe that they have the money, media and the propaganda to
win. It's theirs to win; only Bush hisself can lose it for them.
By-the-by, has anyone actually SEEN or HEARD from boy George lately? Must be
the important business of Government he was talking about. Once in a while,
he comes out from behind his rock to insist that he is not AWOL. But we know
Maybe we are doing this wrong. Maybe we should let anyone who wants the job,
be President, but vote on the Vice-President, Secretary of State, Secretary
of Defense, and the rest of his cabinet. These are the people who pull the
strings and do the damage. That's our problem. We elect (or select) our
president based on something, not taking the time to understand the excess
baggage our "choice" will bring. So some otherwise benign, glib
and easily recognizable name gets elected and then we find out LATER what we
Maybe we should force each candidate to select his or her cabinet and
appointees in advance of the election so that the voters can factor those
most important choices into their decision. Maybe we could also hold him
accountable for the campaign lies he told us to get selected, as
The best thing that can happen is that Bush's benefactors LOSE their $200M
"investment" in BUSHCO and America is turned back to its people.
One thing is certain. Regardless of what we have to do, or who we have to do
it to, we can't allow Bush another four years. This great country will not
survive him. I would be happy to survive until the 2004 election!
