America does not want Bush to be the Decider

yeah, America sure thinks so...scary not the decider.
If President Bush persists with his planned troop increase in Iraq, as all signs indicate, he will do so against a strong tide of U.S. public opinion, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll shows. Democratic leaders in Congress, with support from some Republicans, are pressing for votes on nonbinding resolutions signaling opposition to the president’s policy.

If Congress approves that resolution, the poll shows, 65% of Americans say the president shouldn’t move ahead with his plan. (Some 30% say go ahead.) The poll of 1,007 adults, conducted Jan 17-20, has an error margin of 3.1 percentage points.

The result signals that Mr. Bush made little headway with Americans in his recent speech to the nation outlining his new policy. Mr. Bush will have another opportunity for persuasion in his State of the Union address on Tuesday night.

Ass scratch fever

Not everyone who attended Gov. Rick Perry's inaugural ball was pleased with rocker Ted Nugent's performance.

Using machine guns as props, Nugent appeared onstage as the final act of the evening wearing a cut-off T-shirt emblazoned with the Confederate flag.

He shouted some remarks about non-English speakers that were offensive to some in the audience.

But Perry spokesman Robert Black downplayed the incident, calling Nugent "a good friend of the governor's."

Bush isn't listening

Americans voted their disapproval of the President's Iraq strategy, yet he has escalated the conflict. In this VideoNation report, Katrina vanden Heuvel explains that Bush is recklessly using American lives to salvage a delusional national policy and set the stage for wider war. Congress and the American people must rein him in.

In its lead editorial this week, Nation editors argue that ratcheting up pressure on Congress to block Bush's Iraq escalation plan is the first step toward bringing the troops home.

I need more war...

Hell bent on lunacy

If this is true, we're screwed. I mean really screwed.
Washington intelligence, military and foreign policy circles are abuzz today with speculation that the President, yesterday or in recent days, sent a secret Executive Order to the Secretary of Defense and to the Director of the CIA to launch military operations against Syria and Iran.

The President may have started a new secret, informal war against Syria and Iran without the consent of Congress or any broad discussion with the country.

This man should be nowhere near our armed forces!

God talks to Pat again

I propose he change the name to his news-and-talk television show to "The 666 Club". Are ya listening to me, Pat?
In what has become an annual tradition of prognostications, religious broadcaster Pat Robertson predicted Tuesday that a terrorist attack on the United States would result in "mass killing" late in 2007.

"I'm not necessarily saying it's going to be nuclear," he said during his news-and-talk television show "The 700 Club" on the Christian Broadcasting Network. "The Lord didn't say nuclear. But I do believe it will be something like that."

Robertson said God told him during a recent prayer retreat that major cities and possibly millions of people will be affected by the attack, which should take place sometime after September.

Robertson said God also told him that the U.S. only feigns friendship with
Israel and that U.S. policies are pushing Israel toward "national suicide." - AP Press
