Tonight on his MSNBC program Countdown, Keith Olbermann spent some time reminding America that despite the best efforts of all the former Bush staffers in the media, of why we should not miss George W. Bush, “The true shadow cast by his presidency is who and what we miss because of Bush. What and who we could have been.”
Yes, it’s another day in Republican land where naturally, such questions as, “What about the headless bodies?” are bound to come up. After all, nothing says Republican like wild, unfounded accusations. Oh, but wait, what about the general incompetence? Oh, that was here too. We had the whole show last night during a televised debate between Gubernatorial political opponents Incumbent Republican Jan Brewer and Democrat (current state attorney general since 2003) Terry Goddard of Arizona.
At his daily press briefing today White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs was asked about Glenn Beck’s attacks on Obama’s Christianity. Gibbs said, “People are entitled to their own opinion as ill informed as it may be, but they’re not entitled to their own facts. The president is a committed mainstream Christian.”
Christians are supposed to express love for all human beings, but Christian conservatives are hypocrites and evil incarnate because they claim to be followers of Christ, but belie everything he preached and taught.
And then yesterday, as the President got ready to announce the last combat troops were out of Iraq, and the nation could finally let out its war-weary breath on one front, Republicans had the nerve, the unmitigated gall, to warn the President of the United States to not take “credit” for Iraq. Instead of acknowledging these sacrifices over your mistake, instead of fighting for Veterans’ benefits, instead of finding one damn thing to be positive about, Republicans can not stop being ungrateful, petty, small-minded, empty-hearted partisan hacks.
