The GOP Shuffle

"First you say you will.... and then you won't.... then you say you do, and then you don't.... you're undecided now so WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO?"

The voters want to know.

But, by now they realize, The Decider will do nothing except revise slogans, and spin with "politically motivated misstatements."

While "Bush Acknowledges Discontent on Iraq," he still tap dances to the off-key tune.... "absolutely, we're winning,".... and expresses confidence in both Iraq's prime minister and his defense secretary, "Everything's Coming Up Roses" Rummy.

Expressing confidence in Iraq's prime minister Nouri al-Maliki is a good example of the Bush administration's Iraq war "do-don't" shuffle. Just today "U.S. and Iraqi forces raided the stronghold of a Shiite militia led by an anti-American cleric in a mission targeting a suspected death squad leader, only to have the operation publicly repudiated" by..... Maliki. (WaPo)

Confidence in this behavior by Maliki?

Bush, first you say "stay the course," and then you say "benchmarks," so WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO?

Another Bush administration two-step has been the securing of our border with Mexico. First the GOP will build a border fence, and then they won't fully fund or act on it. All the while illegal aliens by the millions are pouring into the country, among them are drug smugglers, gangs, criminals and terrorists.

The GOP will-won't ballads.... Iraq war, border security, corporate profiteering, trade deficit, national debt, lobbyist corruption, Congressional ethics and "pork barrel" spending.

So what are the voters going to do?
