Back to Fundraising

The Chimp has just spent two mighty uncomfortable days trying to appear compassionate in Louisiana and Mississippi. Touted as a second chance for New Orleans, it was more of an opportunity for the thugs to re-write history. He's back doing what he does best apart from vacating...yes, fundraising. Lieboy's fundraising is and always has been paid for by the US taxpayers.
Pete Sepp, spokesman for the National Taxpayers Union, a taxpayers advocacy organization, suggested at least requiring campaigns to cover the actual cost of fueling and providing a crew to Air Force One, which runs to tens of thousands of dollars each hour for the specially retrofitted Boeing 747-200B Bush usually uses. But Massie Ritsch, spokesman for the Center for Responsive Politics, which tracks money's impact on politics, said that seems unrealistic. "You would bankrupt the campaign," he said.
Why should WE pay for him to traipse around the country telling us more lies and raising money for the GOP? He tosses in a visit to a shoe factory or convenience store and we pick up the tab for Air Force One and personnel used to rake in money for the GOP. Mark Knoller is one of the few journalists to delve into the cost to the public and the number of record breaking vacation days Liezeeeboy takes, also at our expense. If there's a way to rip us off, these thugs will find it. Asa Hutchinson (former impeachment thug) was a recipient of the neocon dough at today's private luncheon.

While fundraising, Bush will spew the latest GOP meme, that all Democrats are fascists, in a manner reminiscent of their "You're either with us or you're with the terrorists" bullshit that coaxed a formerly decent nation into fearfully rabid war fever. The thugs must be so relieved that August is almost over...oh, goodie, here comes the trifecta anniversary; the justification for wars galore, theft until it bleeds, and subjugation of rights in the name of freedom. Their feverish excitement is tangible.

Catapulting more propaganda.
"My series of speeches, they are not political speeches, they are speeches about the future of this country and they are speeches to make it clear that if we retreat before the job is done, this nation will become in even more jeopardy," Bush said. "These are important times and I would seriously hope people wouldn't politicize these issues that I am going to talk about."

Right, and if anyone believes that I have a bridge to nowhere to sell secret, behind Ted Stevens' back.
