Revisionist History in the Making September 5, 2007

Posted by judylobo in Politics.

phantblog.jpgRobert Draper’s book, Dead Certain: The Presidency of George Bush, is causing quite a kerfluffle. Draper had unprecedented access to this secretive bogus President who lives in the White House during 2006 and 2007.  The book addresses the beginning of the process of revisionist history by the Bushies as they try to alter what really happened in subjects such as the selection of Cheney as VP, the Harriet Miers debacle, the Katrina fiasco, infighting amongst the Bushies and the horrendous decision to dismantle the Iraqi army (which I view as the worst thing they did after the actual invasion).

In one of the interviews, he looked ahead to his post-presidency, talking of his plans to build an institute focused on freedom and to “replenish the ol’ coffers” by giving paid speeches. He told Draper he could see himself shuttling between Dallas and Crawford. Noting that he ran into former president Bill Clinton at the United Nations last year, Bush added, Six years from now, you’re not going to see me hanging out in the lobby of the U.N.

–  Keith Olbermann on the true motive for Bush’ surprise photo op trip to Iraq. The deceptions, the lies, the politics. It is an angry special comment, delivered last night,  as only Keith can do and is not afraid to say.

–  Will he or won’t he? Did he or did he not? The story continues as Senator Larry Craig’s representatives claim he is reconsidering his decision to resign as Senator this month.

–  Glad Souter did not bail after the 2000 decision for Bush:
According to Jeffrey Toobin’s new book on the Supreme Court, Justice David Souter nearly resigned in the wake of Bush v. Gore, so distraught was he over the decision that effectively ended the Florida recount and installed George W. Bush as president.

–  What’s it like to work with relatives who think sex is like a handshake, who organise orgies with the neighbours, and firmly believe females should be in charge of everything?

–  Fred Watch: It seems that TV’s TNT station is NOT going to abide by the fair time rule. They are going to show the rerun episodes of L&O with Fred Thompson as DA because they do not think that this FCC rule applies to them since they are not a ‘network’ but a Cable station. Boo hiss.
