More Slipage; Will I Be Able to See the Prez?
Boy, it’s nice to see the mainstream press finally asking some tough questions of this administration again. Things aren’t going well for the prez lately, and even the Republican fan-boys are starting to to question the administration:
Dramatic deterioration in the outlook over the last two weeks is reflected in the experience by a Republican businessman in Milwaukee trying to sell $2,000 tickets for Bush’s only appearance this year in Wisconsin on Oct. 3. In contrast to money flowing easily into the Bush war chest everywhere until now, he encountered stiff resistance. Well-heeled conservative businessmen offered to write a check for $100 or $200, but not $2,000. They gave one reason: Iraq
People are finally starting to wake up and smell the job hemorage, and asking some tough questions of their own.
Like, “Why are we spending $87 Billion in Iraq this year, when we spend less than half that amount on education here in America?” or, “Maybe Americans should get free health care of our own before we starting paying for other countries to have it.” and my favorite, “How `bout them WMD’s?!”.
This administration has been able to sidestep the tough questions for the past three years. Hopefully that practice is ending as people start to figure out that they’ve been getting lied to for the past three years and want to know the hell why.
Also, as a follow up to my last post about Anti-administration protestors being corraled to ‘free speech zones’, I’ll get the chance to see it for myself this Friday as Mr Prez. himself is going to be here in Milwaukee for some sort of rally to hype whatever his latest ‘commitment’ is. A few of us from work – and a number of other Milwaukeeans no doubt – are going to be there, but not to clap and cheer. We’re going to be protesting the administrations domestic and foreign policies. Hopefully, we can get close enough to the rally so that people out there who watch the news see that it wasn’t a total love-fest, and that their neighbors are in fact not way with the direction this country is going. Will have more on this soon….
