I honestly don't like to blog about the frat boy anymore because it gets so frustrating just seemingly pissing in the wind all the damn time. I am convinced that the only thing that could enrage A-merry-cans about their fearless leader would be to watch him burn a new born baby to death on the evening news. And even then I bet we would get cries of; "hey, that's just George being George."
But just when I think it can't get any worse, I read the editorial from my hometown paper, "The Inquirer", about the latest slight of hand from the man who inhabits the White House.
So get this: The frat boy actually refuses to sign a defense spending bill because it might bolster a lawsuit filed by U.S. soldiers tortured in the1991 Persian Gulf War. Yes folks, the same George Bush who argued that Saddam needed to be tackled because he tortured his own people, won't sign a bill that would allow our soldiers to sue the very torturer he wailed about. Now that's hubris!
And why is the frat boy taking this position? Because such a lawsuit would "imperil billions of dollars of Iraq assets", that's why. In fact, did you know that after the soldiers who filed the lawsuit were awarded a $959 million judgment, the frat boy's lawyers intervened and argued that the verdict should be thrown out, and they won? Proof positive that our soldier loving flag waving President is a fucking hypocrite; just like the rest of the people in his phony ass party. (cobb, please feel free to comment on this post as well. I know how sensitive you are about your re-thug-lican friends )
We shouldn't be surprised though; according to "Rolling Stone Magazine" they supported the troops in 2007 by:
"1. Requiring that soldiers discharged early because of battlefield injuries repay their enlistment bonuses.
2. Sent the longest serving National Guard unit home after 729 days of combat in Iraq-one day shy of the 730 that the soldiers needed to qualify for education benefits.
3. Omitted 20,000 cases of brain trauma from the official tally of troops injured in Iraq.
4. Denied medical benefits to 22,000 veterans suffering from post traumatic stress by discharging them for having enlisted with 'pre existing personality disorders'"
So there you have it folks. Just a few more reasons (as if you don't have enough) to hate the hypocrites inhabiting A-merry-ca's right brain.
