The Blame Game – where the real problem lies .

MoveOn.Org had an interesting ad in several of the papers I read daily. It had a point to make and it made it simply. It gave notice to General Betray Us that Americans will not tolerate spin and an extension of the occupation of Iraq.

In response, the GOP leadership, led by U.S. Representative John Boehner (OH-8), called on all Democrat Party members to apologize for that ad. He blamed them for supporting an attack ad that puts our soldiers at risk.

Bush to announce conditional troop cut

President Bush will tell the nation this week he plans to reduce the American troop presence in Iraq by about 30,000 by next summer, but will condition those and further cuts on continued progress, The Associated Press has learned.

In a prime-time television address, probably Thursday, Bush will endorse the recommendations of his top general and top diplomat in Iraq, following their appearance at two days of hearings in Congress, administration officials said. The White House plans to issue a written status report on the so-called “surge” on Friday, they said.

MoveOn ad sparks debate, unease

A newspaper ad attacking Gen. David Patraeus leaves Republicans fuming and Democrats squirming.

The ad, produced and paid for by the liberal activist group MoveOn.Org calls Patraeus “General Betray Us” and leaves a sour taste in the mouths of both proponents and opponents of President George W. Bush’s failed war in Iraq.

Democrats worry that the ad will turn Americans against them because it attacks the man leading soldiers who are fighting in the field. Republicans see it as a chance to question the patriotism of opponents of the war.

Still hurting from the Mark Foley scandal

They were the ones who got hurt the most.

They watched admiringly as their hero climbed the political ladder. They gave him pats on the back, hugged him and sent roses to his office in Washington. One group even created a fan club because they believed he could do no wrong.

Now, they refer to Mark Foley in the past tense.

Who are these people?

Back when Sen. Hillary Clinton was searching for a campaign song for her Presidential run she should have considered the Who’s Who Are You?

Not knowing, or at least claiming not to know, the backgrounds of some of the people who raise money for her campaign has, once again, bitten a Clinton in the butt.

So Hillary is returning $850,000 on campaign donations brought in by Norman Hsu, a criminal on the lam recently nabbed in Colorado.

Another black eye for Mitt Romney

Mitt Romney may claim to be a strait-laced Mormon who doesn’t get down and dirty in politics but that doesn’t stop him from surrounding himself with political tricksters.

First it was the longtime aide who posed a cop and pulled over a reporter following the candidate’s caravan. Then it was Larry Craig and his “wide stance” problem in the airport bathroom.

Now it’s a top adviser putting together an anti-Fred Thompson web site.

Curbing a lust for crime memorabilia

Round and chrome, it looks like an average hubcap from a vintage VW Bug. But this one has a history. And it’s for sale.

It’s off the tan 1968 Volkswagen Beetle that Ted Bundy drove as he roamed the West in the mid-1970s murdering young women. From Washington state to Colorado to Utah, Bundy is considered among the most diabolical serial killers in U.S. history.

Spearing the Britney

We suppose there was a legitimate reason for putting an overweight, under-prepared Britney Spears on the stage of the stage of the MTV video music awards Sunday night in Las Vegas but we’re sure the producers of the show are now wondering just what the hell it was.

Spears was so unprepared that her lip syncing was out of sync, her so-called dance movement didn’t mesh with the professionals around her and she moved with all the grace of a drunken elephant.

At 25, Spears is clearly past her prime, if indeed she ever had one.
