And you think this is good news?!

A new Zogby poll shows that Bush didn't get a bounce and some other interesting info.:

President Bush’s televised address to the nation produced no noticeable bounce in his approval numbers, with his job approval rating slipping a point from a week ago, to 43%, in the latest Zogby International poll. And, in a sign of continuing polarization, more than two-in-five voters (42%) say they would favor impeachment proceedings if it is found the President misled the nation about his reasons for going to war with Iraq.

I don't understand why ANYONE is happy with this news. The poll results are disturbing actually.

Think about it. The question was not "Do you think Bush should be impeached" the question was, "If Bush LIED, then would you favor impeachment."

If it was proven that Bush LIED then the fucking pecentage of Americans who favor impeachment should be 100%, or at least it should be a vast majority of Americans. The fact that a majority of the country does not think Bush should be impeached, if it was PROVEN that he LIED, is fucking insane and attrotious.

If it was proven that Bush LIED, and yet you still wouldn't support impeachment: you are a despicable, Un-American Piece of Shit!

IF YOU ARE ONE OF THESE PEOPLE THEN GET THE FUCK OUT OF OUR COUNTRY RIGHT NOW!!!

Karl Rove's Strategy

This is just my theory, though it makes a hell of a lot of sense to me. It just hit me last night actually.

Think about it. Who has the Republican Party become associated with? Who does America think of when they think Republican Party? They think of the radical right. Even conservatives, such as John Cole, associate his party with the far right.

Now knowing this, Karl Rove's defense is to associate the Democrats with the "far left". This theory is backed up by the White House's response to the recent criticism. A White House Representative on the Today Show said "Karl Rove was talking about a specific group of liberals. What we don't understand is why certain Democrats, who stood with the President after 9/11, are defending them..."

What Rove is attempting to do is associate the Democratic Party with the far left, because the Republican Party has become associated with the far right. This creates an atmosphere of choosing between the lesser of two evils, i.e. "I think the Republicans are extreme but the Democrats are much more extreme, so I'll bit my tongue and vote Republican."

Unfortunately for Rove and thankfully for us, this idea isn't working. Everyone has friends that are liberals and we all know that everyone, regardless of political ideology supported the war in Afghanistan and want to persue Bin Laden. Their plan is back firing.

So Rove is smart, but not that smart since his shit is blowing up in his face.

That is just my take, let me know what you guys/gals think...

FUCK JAMES SENSENBRENNER

...and the horse he rode in on! This guy is fucking outrageous, and his actions as of late are appalling!

First, the fat fuck has the balls to illegally end a hearing on the Patriot Act last Friday because he disagreed with some of the testimony he was hearing:

GOP House Judiciary Chair Uses Pinochet Tactics to Abruptly and Unilaterally Shut Down Hearing

This morning, House Judiciary Chairman James Sensenbrenner, Jr. (R-WI) unilaterally and arbitrarily shut down committee hearings on the reauthorization of the Patriot Act without comment or issuing a statement. Sensenbrenner gaveled the committee hearings in the middle of witnesses testifying about human and civil rights abuses at Guantanamo Bay, racial profiling of individuals of Middle Eastern descent, prolonged detentions of Americans after September 11th and other abuses.

The suppression of free speech and testimony in the congressional committee in charge of protecting our civil liberties shows the Republican’s power grab has no limits and no decency. The irony was not lost on anyone.

Now if that alone wasn't outrageous enough for you, now you have this...

Judiciary GOP pulls the plug on Conyers 'forums'

If the Financial Services Committee is the best in the House when it comes to bipartisan comity, then the Judiciary Committee may well be the worst.

In December, ranking Democrat John Conyers (Mich.) began holding “forums” — gatherings with all the trappings of official hearings — after Chairman James Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) refused to hold hearings on topics Conyers requested. The forums have been held in smaller committee rooms, often with C-SPAN coverage and formal witness lists.

In a sign of how far relationships on the committee have soured, majority staff recently announced a new policy to deny any request from a committee Democrat for the use of a committee hearing room.

I just got off the phone with his office and I let them know how I feel. I told them that this is America, not Communist China. We have an open-society, and I don't know who the hell Sensenbrenner thinks he is, and that his actions are outrageous.

I ask the question, just how far are we from Fascism? How far?
