Big Daddy Bush Blasts Bloggers ...

*



Aha! We see.

So, it's we bloody bloggers who are to blame, eh?

Which pathetic premise, by logical extension, must mean that by reading what we bloggers write -- you're every bit as big a bunch of 'baddies' as we are.

Shame on us.

Shame on you, too.

We should all just shut the eff up.

Ha. And we don't think.

Take a look at this.


Now Daddy Bush Slams Bloggers

Blames Internet for "ugly climate," echoes vitriolic rhetoric of web haters

During an appearance with his wife Barbara on Fox News last night, George Bush senior slammed Internet bloggers for creating an adversarial and ugly climate, echoing the rhetoric of fellow Neo-Cons and the White House itself in trashing the reputation of the world wide web.

HOST: "Why do you think it's gotten so adversarial? Tonight is literacy. Everybody comes in from all different sides and wants to help. It seems like oftentimes in Washington, you know, on something we all want to work towards it's not necessarily so civilized. It's not so pleasant."

H.W. BUSH: "It's true but that's not new really. I mean, you go back in history and you'll find that there was always adversarial politics. There was always gut fighting. And it's probably a little worse now given the electronic media and the bloggers and all these kinds of things."

==========

Establishment kingpins and their cheerleaders have increased their level of vitriolic rhetoric against the Internet in recent months, as legislation in both the U.S. and Europe to regulate, stifle and license the Internet, moves forward...


Oooh! On Faux (oops), Fox News, eh?

Well, it would be wouldn't it?

Argh! Looks like bogeyBushman is out to get you, Old Brit. Some others too it seems.

Stuff 'em, Richard. Publish and be damned - you have your adoring, loyal public to think of.

Heh. You can mail me my PR fee cheque. Try to make it a big fat one.

I saw that. Pot kettle pot kettle ....

The old SOB and father of an SOB just doesn't like that they've not got the controlling interest in it yet. Jealousy.

So tell me Richard you any good at snakes and ladders? If so how'd you like to help me start a club in whatever camp we get sent to? :-)

PS: As part of the deal you get a snazzy orange outfit. Ain't those Bushies generous?

Maybe the level of animosity can be partly blamed on racist policical ads, like the infamous "Willie Horton" ad that Bush Sr. ran.

By the way, that ad was the brainchild of Jim Pinkerton, who now works at Fox News. Andrew Card, Bush II's first Chief of Staff, also contributed to making the ad.

More proof, if it were needed, of the power of the web in general and bloggers in particular. Indeed, we are all indebited to you and so many more like you, Richard. All power to your elbow(s).

In a way they've already started clipping some bloggers and online reporters wings. The stuff that's gradually disappeared from google (especially 'sensitive & important' images) is amazing. It's already happening with Youtube now that google's bought that out too.

It never ceases to amaze me. The odds of any one American becoming president are three hundred million to one against.

Yet 2 out of of the last 3 presidents have been father and son.

And still it hasn't dawned on half of America that they have been duped.

And look at the Democrat's forerunner for the next presidency - Hilary Clinton, wife of the last president but one.

Ha. Talk about never giving a bunch of suckers an even break. Yet they fall for it every time.

Even monarchies (which the US says it would never accept) offer people more choices at election times.

Looks like Blair doesn't much like the web either - or maybe more likely he doesn't like some of us who use it - and the way we use it.

Look at this.

Web fuelling crisi in politics.
