We've Got the Money Honey....

I was scanning "Midterm Vote May Define Rove's Legacy.... Big Losses Could Dim Aura of Bush Adviser," when I came across something so typical of how the Bush administration operates it begged attention.

The Decider's political guru "Turd Blossom" Rove made a recent campaign speech in Buffalo, NY arranged at the behest of embattled Rep. Thomas M. Reynolds (R-NY).... "Before the speech, Reynolds said, he made sure Rove inspected the damage from an unexpected snowstorm and received a briefing from Federal Emergency Management Agency officials. A few days later, Bush declared a federal emergency, making the city eligible for up to $200 million in disaster aid." (WaPo)

This also highlights just one of the multitude of changes the Bush administration and GOP have made in our laws. Under the Stafford Act of 2005, the president has permanent powers to grant federal emergency funds without Congressional approval.

The Decider can use taypayer dollars as his personal piggy bank to spend at will.... this time buying goodwill for one of his Congressional ditto-heads.

If for no other reason, this is why the voters MUST wrest control of Congress from the corrupt grip of the GOP.... oversight.

There isn't any....

For where and how many tax dollars are spent, for bankrupting budget excesses, for oil-church-corporate-favoring regulations and laws, for lying us into war, for obscene lobbyist influence .... in the Bush administration, ethics is an antiquated concept, winning and retaining power is everything.

Rove is confident that the GOP will keep their majority in both houses of Congress.... "we have the capacity to move the resources in if we need to do more," Rove declared... "Incumbents are hard to defeat. Our candidates by and large have significantly more resources than they have."

"Resources" is the buzz word for $$$$. Thanks to Rove and The Decider, Reynolds now has an additional $200 million in public relations "resources."
