Bush: Leave It For The Next Guy

President Bush in his press conference yesterday stated emphatically about the ongoing bloodbath in Iraq, "I see progress." The public isn't sold.

We're reminded of the story the Los Angeles Times ran last November about the U.S. military covertly paying to have positive stories run in the Iraqi press. The Pentagon contracted with a firm called the Lincoln Group to help translate and place "feel good" stories.

The Bush administration's propaganda arm at work.

This was happening while the U.S. was trumpeting the promotion of democratic principles, political transparency and freedom of speech in Iraq. it any wonder the U.S. public is skeptical about the "I see progress" spin?

And, do you remember the Cuban boat immigration crisis that George the greater left to President Clinton? Guess George the lesser learned at daddy's knee because he said yesterday that the issue of removing U.S. troops from Iraq "will be decided by future presidents and future governments of Iraq."

Say what! Bush has nearly three more years to serve as president!

Just leave the mess to the next guy! Guess that is Bush's idea of Iraq war strategy.

And now that I think about it, that is the Bush administration's trade and budget deficit policies also. Our children and grandchildren will have to clean that mess up too, if they can.

We can slow down the Bush administration demolition ball this November. We must loosen the GOP grip on all three branches of our government. Let's start with Congress in November.
