The LuLac Edition #1364, Nov. 7th, 2010



This week former President Bush releases his book which will try to justify his abysmal stolen first term and his abyssal earned second term. For those who think I have nothing good to say about the former President or his book, I must say the cover is quite snazzy. Here's the e mail press release:
Decision Points is the extraordinary account of America’s forty-third president. Shattering the conventions of political autobiography, George W. Bush offers a strikingly candid journey through the defining decisions of his life.
In gripping, never-before-heard detail, President Bush begins the book by explaining his decision to quit drinking and tells of the journey he undertook to find his Christian faith. From there, President Bush brings readers inside the Texas Governor’s Mansion on the night of the hotly contested 2000 election; aboard Air Force One on 9/11, in the hours after America’s most devastating attack since Pearl Harbor; at the head of the table in the Situation Room in the moments before launching the war in Iraq; and behind the Oval Office desk for his historic and controversial decisions on the financial crisis, Hurricane Katrina, Afghanistan, Iran, and other issues that have shaped the first decade of the twenty-first century.A groundbreaking new brand of memoir, Decision Points will captivate supporters, surprise critics, and change perspectives on one of the most consequential eras in American history—and the man at the center of these events.


The other night as I was driving home from work I heard a local talk show and caller commenting on the local election. (I won’t say the name of the station or the talk show host because then I’ll have to edit attacks and character assassinations on said outlet, then I’ll be accused of being a fascist, and we’ll all be straying from the point )but let’s just say it was about ten after six eastern time on a Friday night. Anyway Jerry from Jerymn began to talk about the Tea Party and the strict constitutionalist bent they have taken in the recent election. He also talked about the fact that the Tea Party celebrates our founding fathers. (Hey no one is as big a fan of the Founding Fathers than I am, I think they were gutsy, courageous and grounded in their own self interest which makes not only for good politics but a good successful revolution). That said, if we went back to the “Constitution” and interpreted the way it was intended to be, as Jerry pointed out, women and blacks could not vote. Granted there was no income tax in the Constitution which is what I think the Tea Party is bitching about. But it astounds me that these people so concerned about taxes and the deficit will choose to screw their unemployed neighbor out of a benefit to live on while supporting a war in Iraq based on a dishonest premise which essentially assassinated 4,000 young Americans. Where were you then when the previous administration was spending money like drunken sailors on leave ? Thanks Jerry from Jerymn for bringing clarity to the Constitutional scholars out there.

Its great to have Bush II back in the spotlight. What a brave and forcefull leader he was with statements like "find them and kick their asses" after 911! Who did we find and what asses did we kick? ITS EASY TO BE BRAVE WHEN SOMEONE ELSE TAKES ALL THE RISKS WHILE YOU ARE SAFE IN THE BUNKER! Cheney and Bushie, two tough hard guys. Boy do we miss them.
The only good thing that ever came out of Texas was Willie Nelson.

Nobody asked me, but isn't the tea party just another pointless and phony political group?? How many of them railed against "socialism" while collecting medicare and social security?? I mean, come on.
You really can't talk to a tea partier either; I was trying to point out innacuracies to one of them and I basically had a better chance of getting a lucid response from my toilet.
State bulls--t enough times and it becomes a fact. The big lie.
You make a valid point: where were all these tea partier fiscal conservatives when the GOP was raping the treasury, presided over by GWB???? Answer: They didn't give a crap, because if its a Republican doing it, it's okay. Talk about a Kool Aid crowd.
And now they have the House.
Good Luck America!!!

Trying to be heard by the GOP!!!

It took us a while and when all we have is change...well you know the story.

Talk about raping the Treasury! Been paying attention lately or enjoying your Barracolate?

BTW Dave - no one I know wants to deny any citizen the right to vote so you can burn that one. There are some tough choices to make and everyone is going to have to feel something in the way of sacrifice.
