Paul O'Neill Comes Clean on Bush's
I spent this Holiday season
reading the recent liberal responses to the right-wing media and political
lies. Michael Moore and Al Franken
shine light on the suspicions that we held all along: that our government is
lying to us. No longer is it
liberal paranoia to believe that there really is a “vast, right-wing
conspiracy” that is feeding us lies, spreading these lies through
conservatively owned media, and then forcing major networks to report these
same lies because of the need to compete.
On one side of the political
spectrum, we have politicians lying to us about their girlfriends, past drug
use, and infidelity. On the
other side, we have politicians lying to us about education, the
environment, and reasons for going to war.
Now, I’m not defending any politician; they are all liars, saying
anything that will get them elected. But
wouldn’t you rather your President lie about personal affairs rather than
the security and well being of our nation?
Paul O’Neill is now proving
that these lies were no mistake. Mr.
Bush said things during the election debates deliberately knowing he was
going to do just the opposite. Bush
promised to be fiscally responsible, give the bulk of the tax-cuts to the
middle-class, not use our troops and money for nation-building, and make
education his top priority. Franken
and Moore use transcripts showing that these words came right out of
Bush’s mouth and from day one of his Presidency did just the opposite. Today, we see a wildly under-funded education plan, the rich
getting the best of the tax-cuts, and a deficit that is out of control.
We also see a war that is not protecting us from any security
threats, and rich people getting even richer through no-bid contracts and
over charging our government.
How could anyone be proud of being a Republican today?
Their spokesperson, Rush Limbaugh has been proved a lying, racist,
drug-addict. How could you get
any lower? I suppose you could
lie about the reason to go to war. Now
we know: President Bush did lie
to us about why we went to war with Iraq.
The American soldiers that are dying every day in Iraq are on his
head, and the head of this lying administration.
The innocent women and children that are dying every day because of
this war are also on his head. The
greed for money, oil, and power prevent Mr. Bush and his cronies from
weighing on his conscience, too.
It is time for regime change. We
got rid of one terrorist, let’s get rid of the biggest terrorist of them
all. Vote Bush out…again.
