Middle East in Flames and Bush Babbles Tastelessly About a Pig

I thoroughly enjoy reading BuzzFlash editors' daily commentary that comes along as introduction to their top headlines. They are sometimes irascible, often irreverent, but always spoken with simple, hard-hitting honesty. They tell it like they see it, not mincing words. This one is no exception.

Today we will just quote from a story in "Newsday" that indicates even the mainstream media may be awakening to the gross negligence and cluelessness of Mr. Bush:

"As Israeli warplanes were preparing an attack on Lebanon Thursday afternoon, and a Lebanese militia was aiming a rocket at the ancient Israeli city of Safed, President George W. Bush was bantering with reporters in Germany about a pig.

Bush kept bringing up the roast wild boar he was about to dine on at a banquet that night, even when asked about the swelling crisis in the Middle East, where pig meat is forbidden to religious Jews and Muslims.

"Does it concern you that the Beirut airport has been bombed?" a reporter asked. "And do you see a risk of triggering a wider war?"

"I thought you were going to ask me about the pig," Bush replied blithely. Then he brought the pig up again -- for the fifth time -- before giving a long answer that ended with his saying Israel needed to protect itself.

"He was asked a serious question," said Ian Lustick, a Middle East expert now at the University of Pennsylvania, and his answer "epitomized his disengagement in the Middle East."


This is insanity that this man is still in office.

Our foreign policy has sunk to "oink, oink" stories.

Want an Example of What a Democratic "Wedge Issue" Against Bush Would Look Like? Try Stem Cell Research. Almost Every American Has a Relative or Friend Who Would Potentially Benefit From It. It's a Slam Dunk for the Dems. They Should be Stuffing It Down Bush's Throat. "President Bush may use a veto for the first time on a measure passed by the House that would loosen restrictions on embryonic stem cell research."

Under Bushevism, America Is Up For Sale: Roads and bridges built by U.S. taxpayers are starting to be sold off, and so far foreign-owned companies are doing the buying.

We could be going bankrupt, says Federal Reserve researcher in shock paper: country may be "exhausted, stripped bare, destitute, bereft, wanting in property, or wrecked in consequence of failure to pay its creditors"
