President Bush's support among the military is sinking fast. Are they losing faith in Bush? Have they seen the futility of fighting a war in Iraq when the president keeps reinventing the reasons for the war? Serving two and three tours of duty in Iraq has definitely altered the military's opinion about Bush. The Military Times Media Group has further information. By the way, while visiting a military hospital, Bush said the following: "I have an injury myself – not here at the hospital, but in combat with a cedar. I eventually won. The cedar gave me a little scratch." (Do you think that those who've lost legs, arms, and have severe burns from their battles in Iraq had any sympathy for Bush?)
Ameriblog has a tee shirt you can order that says "Bush spied on me." I'd like to see a lot of cars with bumper stickers with the same phrase. Media Matters has myths about Bush's spy scandal.
Jack Abramoff has agreed to a plea deal. CNN has announced that he will plead guilty to fraud, corruption, and tax evasion, with the possibility of a long prison sentence. MSNBC has more details as well as a story about those linked to Abramoff. You must check out the graphic from the Washington Post. It shows all the connections Abramoff made with members of Congress, Native American tribes, and other people. With all this hitting the fan, Ralph Reed's political career might be over. How can you say you are religious if you are defrauding the government, taking money in payoffs, lying to people, and making money while you do it all? Shame.
I just have one question: When will Patrick Fitzgerald announce new indictments?
Catherine Crier had Victoria Toesnig (spelling?) on her Court TV program. Crier said that Bush had four years to try to change the FISA court law if he wanted. Also, Crier said that despite what Bush has been claiming, there was never a declared war in Iraq. It looked like Crier and Toesing have had some big political disagreements in the past because their discussion was intense.
