Re: Bush's lies

Yeah, well, of course he lied but thanks to you hellbound Libs we'll not likely get to the bottom of it.

The most brilliant defensive strategy of the Clinton Administration (in the heady days of Dem congrssional control and beyond) was to say "nothing's been proven, let's move on" whenever a new charge was brought to the fore.

Well, of course, nothing's been proven because nothing's been investigated.

So the administration's front men can saturate the airwaves with "there's never been any proof that the president lied" and Mr and Mrs America nod somnolently and switch over to E to see which costar L'il Tommy Cruise is marrying this week.

You mean like Whitewater and Lewinsky? I think those got investigated a bit.

What Julie said.

Plus:

I'll take Clinton being investigated for Whitewater and Lewinsky any day over the horrific travesty we call American leadership today.

Sorry, but this story is now my all-time favorite. I heard this on NPR on my way to work today:

CIA Director Porter Goss says he has "an excellent idea" where Osama bin Laden is, but...we can't just barge in and get him, we have to respect the sovereignty of foreign nations.

HA HA HA HA HA!!!! Oh...boy...whew. That one was a gut buster.

My first thought was, "Oh? Since when have we done that?" and a picture of Manuel Noriega popped into my head, followed closely by Saddam Husssein.

Oh, is THAT the new excuse? I heard that we couldn't do it because there are some areas in our anti-terror infrastructure that need to be shored up first.

No, no, it's all about respect with this administration .

(You should've seen the milk come out my nose after that whopper!)

No no no no.

You've all got it all wrong.

We have Osama behind bars already. I know it's true because that what the picture says on this freeper page:

I Love Gitmo

Is that like loving the Alamo?

David Stewart, the Alamo's director, says he hears the Pee Wee question all the time, and that by now he can tell when someone is about to bring it up again.

"They get this little smile on their face and say 'You know what I'm going to ask,'" he said. "And I always say, 'No, we don't have a basement.'"

Both excuses are "correct." In order to catch Osama, we must address the weak links, among which are "sactuaries" within so-called sovereign nations. As President Dumbass has explained in the past, a sovereign nation is a nation that's sovereign. I hope this clears up any confusion.

I think we're all missing who the real enemy is here.

Saddam.

Not fatty foods? I'm so confused.
