See for yourself how George W. Bush lied to the American people and the rest of the world about the hurricane Katrina horror story.

Watch this damning video with your own eyes, then write today's This Old Brit's missing copy for yourself, and for any friends who haven't yet heard the latest on the liar-in-chief.

And it goes without saying -- please, please, please pass this on. And do it without delay.

That is all.

Time to impeach! On what grounds? On what grounds NOT?!?

Gert, I've come here straight from an online conversation [seconds ago] regarding exactly that. Katrina-gate!

She says that with the massive numbers of Americans 'red hot' right now about the UAE ports deal - on tops of so many other things - this could become the staw that broke the camel's back.

So, I hope you've got them fingers crossed - like I have .

I forgot to say. The friend is American. She's a Dem living in a rampant, red-neck Repug state.

I have the Bush katrina video on my site, feel free to download it.
I Also have this opinion on the site.
August 2005 George Bush was in Texas and he was there for a reason. The 09.11.01 anniversary was going to fall on a Sunday. That was like a gift from heaven and Bush was going to take full advantage of it. While Katrina was forming, in the Gulf of Mexico, the Bush team was planning every second of 09.11.05. They were making plans for cabinet members to be on the Sunday talk shows, like Meet the Press, with the same message to support the Bush agenda. I believe Michael Brown was out of this loop and wouldn’t have been able to interrupt the planning, even if he had tried and he may have tried. A hurricane or hurricane threat was not going to interfere with the Bush agenda or the 09.11.01 anniversary planning. When the dikes broke, in New Orleans, the Bush team refused to believe their 09.11.01 anniversary plans would have to trashed and refused to refocus on real event, hurricane Katrina, until it was too late.

Hmm, if Reagan was the "Teflon president", this one is probably the "ping pong president", on account of always bouncing back somehow. I can just see them engineer some disaster somewhere so Georgie can come and save the day, hugging photogenical black kids and that sort of thing. He does excell at that. Strange how someone can emulate empathy while not caring one little bit...

Nought queerer than folk...

Anyroads, I say anyroads, I'm spreading the word too.

Saw a post somewhere claiming Google listings for "incompetent bush" had gone up overnight from 2.2 million to 2.4 million. What a tribute! But the wingnuts keep believing...

If he isn't impeached (for this and everything else) then god help the US - because any future leader will be able to do anything - and get away with it. If that's not a dictatorship then what the hell is?

I agree with rex.

If they can't get Bush for this (as the last straw), then what's the point?

There are, unfortunately, too many venal politicians in the Congress. If they were looking out solely for the interests of the people, this latest would truly be "it" for Junior.

Is it embarrasement? After Nixon and Clinton are the people's elected officals ashamed to admit they've got another liar as boss - YET AGAIN?

Yeah I've been waiting for the fallout on this one - but so far nothing major. How much more will we put up with? I think that we in the US have such short attenion spans. The conservative spin now is that big government failed the citizens of New Orleans - namely the Democratic governor etc - and not Emperor George. Of course the storm victims were mainly poor and/or minorities so no big deal right?

I hope they get him too, but I'm not holding my breath. Also, I'm more than a little concerned with the possibility of President Cheney. I mean if that happens, who gets shot in the face next?

Bluey, there are many millions of delusional people all over this world. I gather that David Hasselhof is still very popular in Germany, for example. Even Nixon had an approval rating of about 25% when he was resigning in disgrace. Some people just don't want to believe it when things are bad, and the representatives in congress are unwilling to speak out if the demographic that put them in office (both voters and big-money special-interests) still has strong numbers in favor of Bush.

Also, I'm not going to sit here and try to sing the praises of Bill Clinton, but I gotta' say I think there's a big difference between lying about reasons for going to war or inept responses to a major disaster or bugging your opposition's offices, and lying about sexual indiscretions. I mean if you were married to Hillary, wouldn't you lie to congress to avoid her vice-like grip on your testes when she gets you home?

There are a million reasons for impeachment of the chimp but, and it is a great big but, he owns all the processes that would do this, you can all list them. It is scandal after scandal, protest after protest by the swelling tide of us "citizen journalists" i.e. bloggers, in the face of the vast failure of the mass media to say anything of any import. I hear he is now building enormous labour camps across the U.S. to house the 'dissidents'i.e. 'liberals' like you and me. I've seen the photos. No stopping the chimp. 1984 is here and here to stay.

I more or less started this thread on "Impeach the Chimperor!", so let me put in another comment.

"Impeach!" for me is nothing more than a battle-cry, an expression of my frustration. In practice I'm convinced it won't happen and if it did happen it wouldn't succeed. Same here with Poobah Bliar. And therein lies great danger: if impeachment failed the neocons would be more dangerous than ever because they'd feel vindicated, it'd be a case of "out of the frying pan and into the fire".

Bush's approval ratings may be low but support from the Right remains generally speaking strong (going by the right wing blogosphere, at least). These people are tribal and they close ranks, no matter what...

And Nixon resigned but they never prosecuted him, did they?

On Cheney, I saw this headline: "Bad Dick Hunting"...

Blogger St!ff M!ttens said...

Right, Gert. Nixon resigned to avoid being prosecuted, all the while maintaining that he was being wronged and then Ford offers him a sort of retroactive blanket pardon for any wrongdoing he "may" have engaged in. I don't think impeachment of Bush will succeed either. The impeachment of Clinton was less about actually removing him from office, I think, and more about embarassing him and hampering his ability to get stuff accomplished. I think it's still important to keep the heat on Bush, as much as possible. But no matter how hot Bush's seat gets, he won't do anything to even suggest the possibility that he may be somewhat not altogether in the right. He never makes mistakes. He told us so.

The most effective punishment, while tey're still in office, is the power of the purse.

When the budget is being approved reject the appropriations and vote ohhhhhh let's be generous:

$00.05 to run the Whitehouse.
$00.02 to run Cheney's Office
Condi' salary to be negative IOW she has to pay for every single thing hereself. Shouldn't be too difficulat for her OK she might have to buy $2,000 shoes instead of $3,000 shoes but as a patriotic American I'm sure she'd be willing to make that sacrifice.

O/T to this Apropos the killing of the Birtish soldiers in Al Amarah i did a lenghty analysis on my daily blog gorilla's guides far more to point I've been seething all day because some poor sod with a brother in Iraq posted a request for info during a long discussion about Samarra.

His "name" is "Quiche Eating Islington Poofter" so he obviously has a genius for descriptive screen names and a most enjoyable in your face sense of humour too came on. His brother is a soldier in Iraq and he's understandably worried. Some of the lads who served under me ansered him and when I got back I repeated their (correct) answers. He had this to say at the end of all of that:

"Thanks mate I appreciate it. Listen no offense, my mum’s Irish, but it feels weird to be asking an Irish bloke with the tri-colour up on the top of his page about a British soldier being OK well OKish. No offense just I should be able to ask a Brit and get a straight answer like you and your guys gave.

Thanks I really appreciate it even if it wasn’t what I wanted to hear.

Comment by Quiche Eating Islington Poofter — March 2, 2006 @ 10:32 pm"

He meant no offense and none was taken - and he's right, the family of a British soldier serving in Iraq should not have to turn to me and my lads to get straight answers about his survival prospects. I've been seething all day, it is damned well disgusting that British soldiers' families feel they have to do that.

Yeah Mark I was wondering why IQEP thought you might be offended - he came across as very sincere genuine and concerned [his mammy is Irish after all] and you're dead right - he shouldn't have to come to you for answers - but when has anyone got a direct response from a British official?

Blogger markfromireland said...

Presumably he thinks that people who display the tricolour prominently are hardline nationalists/republicans.

The dragoons regularly do tours in The North. I'd be prepared to bet that his brother served on at least one of those tours.

I know people in the u.s and apparently theyre none to happy with shrub and his ilk. But dont fool yourselves. The repugs will close ranks and this will pass.

words minus action = nothing.

And that is whats gonna come of this: nothing.

The Iranian bourse if allowed to happen (no american invasion to stop it) will bring the end to the u.s. but it is my firm belief that nothing inside the u.s. will put a stop to their crimes
