He's Got To Get Elected Somehow
Bush has shown his hand. Today he vowed
to use the first veto of his presidency to destroy the Congressional rollback of FCC Chief Powell's media handover. This
is what he's willing to take a stand upon.
Of course: because broadcasting being in the fewest possible hands is the only way he can be sure of favorable coverage during the next election. That was the plan and purpose all along, and I'm sure he's not at all any more sympathetic to a free press or free speech given that the networks and press still aren't shutting up like obedient little pets about the 16 words on the Niger uranium.
Oh, and that U.S. troops are dying every day, still, in Iraq for nothing. But in other news, the Bush administration, in contravention of the Geneva Convention, released two photos of the supposedly dead Uday
Hussein that look nothing like either. But I guess they figure all them Arabs look the same to us, and for that matter, to them as well.
