Happy Birthday Alberto

Another one of Geroge Bush’s squeaky toys is leaving the presidential bathtub. The very lame duck Alberto probably won’t be spending his August 5th 53rd birthday floating in the suds in his patron’s bathtub and being given endearing squeezes by the boss who he squeaked for since the good old boy days in Texas.

Alberto has more in common with Bush than many people realize.

Progress? What progress?

President George W. Bush’s ill-conceived Iraq war has become a failure on so many fronts that it is hard to keep track.

A new report by the General Accounting Office finds Iraq has failed to meet 15 of the 18 congressionally-mandated benchmarks and casts doubt on the accuracy of White House claims of more progress.

Bickering Democrats split over terrorism

Constantly bickering Democrats can’t mount an effective campaign against President George W. Bush’s failed war on terror because they can’t stop fighting each other over the issue.

Hillary will dump crooked fundraiser’s cash

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton will give to charity the $23,000 in donations she has received from a fundraiser who is wanted in California for failing to appear for sentencing on a 1991 grand theft charge.

Dems blast Bush over Iraq funding

Democratic leaders warned Wednesday that Congress must stop writing “blank checks” for the Iraq war, after a report said the White House would request an extra 50 billion dollars in funding.

Democratic leaders have tried and failed to use past emergency funding bills for the war to force Bush to accept troop withdrawal timetables.

Europeans like Hillary for President

More than four in 10 French and Germans would like to see Democratic candidate and former first lady Hillary Clinton elected US president in 2008, a survey by a Canadian pollster showed on Wednesday.

The Angus Reid institute also found Clinton to be the preferred candidate of British, Italian and Canadian respondents to its poll, which asked them to choose between eight of the US politicians running for the nomination.

Iraq on the installment plan

President Bush is about to ask Congress for another $50 billion to keep fighting the war in Iraq. He is betting — almost certainly correctly — that the Democrats will give him a rough time over the money, probably try to attach timetables for withdrawal to the bill and ultimately give in and pass it.

What will George do after 2008?

I have always wondered what President Bush will do after he finishes his second term, assuming that he consents to go. He could be a professional brush clearer, a producer of exercise-bike videos or a private elocution teacher for would-be politicians who need to mangle their sentences in order to achieve the common touch.
