...A top-flight, leading conservative pro-life lawyer with a vibrant Supreme Court practice whose name most readers of this forum would know just walked into the room where I’m sitting. He was thrilled about Roberts’ answers during the dialogue with Specter and indicated his strong approval and endorsement. He explained that Roberts’s answer was carefully framed to provide a basis for revisiting and overturning Roe in the future. Specifically, he indicated that Roberts said that precedent could be overturned on the basis of changing circumstances...

...With a terrorist sighting, Bush likely would not have lingered on his Crawford ranch vacation, which he interrupted only for politicking and fundraising opportunities. Nor would Condoleezza Rice have gone shoe shopping while the world witnessed the sorry spectacle of the Gulf Coast in deadly disarray. And surely Donald Rumsfeld, who blithely attended a San Diego Padres game as New Orleans was filling with water, wouldn't have dithered for days before sending in troops to aid desperate Americans.
On March 20, 2005, George W. Bush rapidly returned to Washington from another Crawford vacation so he could intervene in the Terry Schiavo case by signing Republican legislation requiring doctors to restore Schiavo's feeding tube.
But now, he has found it too difficult to take a few minutes out of his five-week vacation to meet Cindy Sheehan, who simply wants to know the reason that her son is dead... http://bobgeiger.blogspot.com/2005/08/bush-interrupted-vacation-for-schiavo.html
JOSEPH WILSON:" ...My wife is a career civil servant. She's apolitical. She exercises her democratic rights like every other citizen, but she does not participate in partisan politics or these partisan political activities. She is not in the public arena or the public square. And how Mr. Rove could conclude that she is fair game is frankly beyond me. But what I will say is that this sort of attitude just has to stop. We don't accept it in our towns and our villages, we should not accept it in our political campaigns, because this is exactly the same thing they did to John McCain and John McCain's wife in South Carolina. And I go through that story, and I talked to John McCain the other day. And he thanked me. He thanked me for bringing that story out of what happened in South Carolina. This has got to stop. It is frankly un-American to decide that the way to get at somebody you determine is your political opponent, you have a dispute on ideas, or in this case on veracity, and you decide that instead of debating it, the truth in this case, the truth or lie issue, you are going to drag my wife out in the public square and administer a beating to distract people's attention from your lies..."
most importantly - the thousands of iraqi civilians killed in the unjust war - and the us servicemen killed or maimed because of her shitty reporting (lies).
White House Iraq Group had a perfect deal with Miller," he said.
"Chalabi is providing the Bush people with the information they need to
support their political objectives with Iraq, and he is supplying the
same material to Judy Miller. Chalabi tips her on something, and then
she goes to the White House, which has already heard the same thing
from Chalabi, and she gets it corroborated by some insider she always
describes as a ‘senior administration official.' She also got the
Pentagon to confirm things for her, which made sense, since they were
working so closely with Chalabi. Too bad Judy didn't spend a little
more time talking to those of us in the intelligence community who had
information that contradicted almost everything Chalabi said.""
...China has so many dollars to lend to us because we send so many dollars to China to pay for the goods and services that patriotic American corporations have decided to supply to us from China instead of from America...
...Americans are pouring so much money into China that China can finance our wars while it buys up our companies...
...Everyone was shocked that a Chinese company could outbid Chevron for Unocal. China has already purchased IBM's personal computer business, and is now after US appliance maker Maytag (whose appliances are made in Mexico)...
"There's no way the administration would
let that occur. Many like Bolton and feel that he is important -- but
not so important that they would let an appointment that could only
last until January 2007 endanger a lifetime appointee to the Supreme
Court and while mustering all other necessary resources on a
legal-political fight involving the president and vice president's
closest aides. Too much to handle all at once.
