Category Archives: The Shrub Speaks

From our Dept of WTF?

I couldn’t believe it. I thought perhaps it was the codeine cough medicine that was jerking me out. When I heard what The Shrub said in his cough…final Presser today about Katrina, I thought I was going to stroke the hell out.

First, he didn’t even get the number of “people pulled off roofs right after the storm passed.” took days and days for any federal help to get there. There were so many fuck ups by the Fed’s, who can name them all in five minutes? The sumbitch outright lied about Katrina today in his press conference…may Gawd have mercy on his lying ass.

Bush’s legacy will always be about Iraq, torture, loss of our constitutional rights and finally the worst…Katrina. Katrina was an abject failure of the highest order…on our own soil.

Watch Rachel and Jeb Horne tick off all the failures regarding FEMA and the Bush administration as a whole, when it comes to responding to Katrina, the levee’s failing and 1800 people dying: {font-size:11px; font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; color: #999; margin-top: 5px; background: transparent; text-align: center; width: 425px;} .msnbcLinks a {text-decoration:none !important; border-bottom: 1px dotted #999 !important; font-weight:normal !important; height: 13px;} .msnbcLinks a:link, .msnbcLinks a:visited {color: #5799db !important;} .msnbcLinks a:hover, .msnbcLinks a:active {color:#CC0000 !important;}

One friggin week left of this lying sack of sheep more week.

Going back to bed, my throat is killing me and I now have a headache from thinking about the horror that was..and sadly still is..Katrina and how The Shrub lied his ever-loving ass off about it today.


He is such a tool, our fearmongering leader. Why do people buy his twisted logic? A logic that basically admits the Telco’s subjugated our rights without so much as a whimper?

Over 40 lawsuits are winding their way through the court systems against these smarmy bastards known as the Telco’s..or Telecoms if you like.

Bush will sacrifice his own electorate in order to glean retroactive immunity for his cohorts in crime. I give you his own fear-filled words on the subject:

“At this moment, somewhere in the world, terrorists are planning new attacks on our country. Their goal is to bring destruction to our shores that will make September the 11th pale by comparison.”

And yet, he refuses to extend the one already in place..that gives him every opportunity to spy on those that need it. He refuses to sign a bill that will do everything except cover the collective asses of the Telco’s.

The stench of hypocrisy is pretty thick wouldn’t you say my dear reader? I can only hope that the House will stay the course..its our last hope on this issue. Lawd knows those idiots in the Senate can not be trusted to do their jobs.

House Minority Leader John Boehner, had the audacity to actually attempt to defend the Republicans’ desire to give the Telco’s their ‘free pass’..from CNN:

“This issue of the carriers that work with our government are increasingly concerned about their liability and increasingly concerned about whether they are going to continue to work with our intelligence officials,” -Boehner, an idiot and Rethug foot soldier of the highest order, had the nads to say today.

These guys have elevated fearmongering to an art form.

Hooray, its dead..the bullshit will ensue of course..but for now..its dead as the proverbial doornail. And I couldn’t be happier. 😉 Dana Perino can kiss my liberal ass.

Check out this wonderful short video on this issue..simply marvelous!

Bush outlines his plan to kick start the economy

As I listened to the Fuckwit-in-Chief this morning, I wondered if he actually believes what he is saying or just hopes to hell we believe it?

He wants the tax cuts for the top one percenters to be made permanent..but the ones he is outlining for the rest of America should only be a one-time deal.

Of course this part really chapped my ass: Folks at the bottom of the economic rung shouldn’t get shit..because that is considered welfare.

Fuck you Frat boy.

When his speech is online..I will post the hilarious parts..or in the case of the middle and lower class..the pathetic parts.

Edit: Here it is..what the Jackass-in-Chief wants and what bullshit he spewed. Some lowlights:

Our economy has seen the longest uninterrupted period of job growth on record – 52 months of job growth – but job creation has slowed recently. Consumer spending has been growing, but the housing market is the December report on how American’s spent their money showed it was in the toilet, the worst since 1991. The NYT stated: Strong evidence is emerging that consumer spending, a bulwark against recession over the last year even as energy prices surged and the housing market sputtered, has begun to slow sharply at every level of the American economy, from the working class to the wealthy.

Sorry Bush, but your full of shit on that first point right out of the box. The way the government fixes it’s statistics on job growth have been bullshit for years. Too many variables that should be included in that statistic aren’t.

Wages are stagnant and good paying jobs disappear

while the income of the top one percent of Americans that don’t actually work for a living and that love their stocks and hedge funds has continued to grow. To say we are growing and jobs are being created might be true..but what is the average wage of those ‘new’ jobs? The NYT article linked above shows how the lifestyles of average American’s has changed drastically:

One consequence is an upending of the traditional pattern, in which middle-aged children take in an elderly parent. As $15-an-hour factory jobs are replaced by $7- or $8-an-hour retail jobs, more men in their 30s and 40s are moving in with their parents or grandparents, said Cheryl Thiessen, the director of Jackson/Vinton Community Action, which runs medical, fuel and other aid programs in Jackson and Vinton Counties.

The Economic Policy Institute, EPI tells you and shows you graphs and charts on how wages have suffered for the working part of America:

With the release of today’s consumer price index for December—up 0.3% for the month and 4.1% for 2007—we can now examine how real hourly and weekly earnings did over the course of last year (comparing this December to last December).

As shown in Figure 1, both hourly and weekly earnings fell in 2007, a sharp reversal from the gains in 2006. After growing by about 2% in 2006, both hourly and weekly earnings fell, after adjusting for inflation, by about 1% last year.

Bush calls Dem’s USA probe a partisan job and a show trial.

The Shrub also stated Rover and Miers will NOT appear under oath. He used the phrase “Dem’s are using this to score political points”- which is not a direct quote since his speech-i-fying is not on the WH website yet.

He also said he is sorry that these decent USA’s are being held up to scrutiny, but thats the way it is.

He used the “political points” line and the phrase “show trials” numerous times. You know Bush, he loves his slogans.

It lasted about 3 minutes. When the WH website has the speech up, I will enlighten as to its direct quotes.
