When you squeeze too hard; the truth is bound to come out

Mr. President,

Your legendary grip on information has some inherent problems junior.

The tighter the grip, and the more outrageous your actions are, the more pressure some people feel to get important information out, hence, we get a ton of tell-all books and scores of unnamed sources are spurting out information all over the place.

Over the years, you have provided conspiracy theorists lots of tasty bits to munch on. One early theory was that the real reason you invaded Iraq was to secure their oil fields for your own purposes.

These conspiracy nuts are something else. But on the other hand if you leave a monkey alone with a word processor long enough, they will eventually type something that is true. And even a broken wind-up clock is correct twice a day, right?

I have a word processor so let me espouse my own theory here. Given todays news it seems more probable that Cheney’s secret energy policy set the framework for neo-conservatives’ plan for American imperialism. And that meant you had to invade Iraq to get access to their vast oil reserves.

Before the invasion you stirred up the fact that Saddam had sold oil under the table despite the embargo the UN had imposed on Iraq. Several people have been investigated from several countries including people from the United States.


From: Reuters news service.

“NEW YORK (Reuters) - Prosecutors promised on Monday to prove that Texas oilman Oscar Wyatt paid millions of dollars in kickbacks to Saddam Hussein's government, earning him a privileged position in Iraq.""Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephen Miller told jurors at opening arguments of Wyatt's trial that prosecutors would present photos, audio tapes, bank records, U.N. records, and Iraqi government records proving Wyatt paid kickbacks to win Iraqi oil contracts.”



This last Friday another oil man from Texas and a long time Bush supporter picked up where Wyatt left off.



By BLOOMBERG NEWS

“The Hunt Oil Company of Dallas has become the first international company to receive permission to drill for oil in the Kurdistan region of Northern Iraq since the local government issued an oil-and-gas law last month.”In January 2006, Mr. Hunt was appointed by President George W. Bush to the President’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board in Washington, D.C."





Something fishy is going on here junior. I suppose you hope no one will notice the dispiriting coincidence that on the eve of the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks that one of your close Texas oil buddies has just secured the rights to drill for oil in Iraq.

All we had before this was very strong suspicions. The evidence such as this oil contract to Hunt is nailing that suspicion down.

Loyal Fox viewers won’t acknowledge any of this of course, because they love you no matter what you do to them.
Although your poor supporters are suffering the same lack of freedoms and disastrous economic policies like the rest of us, Fox bushies have the mindset of an abused spouse.

Abused spouses keep going back to their abusers regardless of the number of times they get beat up. So you always have that going for you.

The rest of us can see you for what you are and what you are really doing to our democracy and what you have done to Iraq.

Hiding behind General Patreus like hiding behind Colin Powell will not get you very far with the average American anymore. You have been caught lying to us too often and too many dots are popping up which ordinary people can now connect for themselves. The resulting picture is anything but flattering for your administration and your legacy.

Speaking about your administration, your original cabinet has been so decimated, that by the end of you term you may be able to have a going away party in a phone booth.

Is anyone keeping track of how many Republicans have left your administration through indictments, convictions, or are under investigation? The good bad and the ugly are leaving the U.S.S. Bush Shit.

Senator Hagel, John Warner and Wayne Allard have announced that they too, are retiring and will not seek re-election. These high-powered, well-respected Republican senators have suddenly decided to opt out of government service.

None of these senators had given anyone any prior inkling that they were leaving up until now.

Why now? We can only guess. Do they believe their party’s conservative ideals have been hijacked by the extreme right wing fanatics that you put in charge? Are they just sick of the combative politics you brought to Congress? Did they want to spend more time with their families? What ever it was it had to have been significant for people with such long service to our country to suddenly announce they are quitting.

Regardless of the reasons, their refusal to run again, adds to the GOP burden for this election cycle. This is just one more ominous note in the Republican party’s 2008 swan song.

Every week you have a new headache to deal with. It just sucks being you doesn't it?
Senator Craig said he had his fingers crossed when he pleaded guilty to a lesser charge after he was caught soliciting gay sex in Minneapolis, so it didn't count.

Your Texas oil buddy's deal for Iraq oil, all-but-confirms the fact who benefits from your war besides Halliburton; and it further adds to the suspicion that you are despicable enough to trade American and Iraqi blood for oil.

Today’s General Patraeus report is not going to fool many people, except the ones that want to be fooled. The pre-approved bush-message he espoused was a pretty transparent stop-gap measure; a life buoy to keep GOP congressmen up for re-election afloat and a horrendous reason to keep our soldiers in harms way. Nothing will get better until the Iraqi government coalesces into a unified body. And Iraq will not get that opportunity as long as we are used as a crutch.

Didn’t General Patraeus learn anything from Colin Powell’s now-infamous UN speech?

On behalf of President Bush, thank you for your correspondence.

We appreciate hearing your views and welcome your suggestions.

Due to the large volume of e-mail received, the White House cannot respond to every message.

Thank you again for taking the time to write.

What a freak show!

Mr. President,
Sorry I haven't written. It has been a crazy summer. I read that you are having a heckuva summer yourself.

Forget liberal Democrat gatherings I want to be a fly on the wall at a Republican late-night party. They have to be really freaky.

The Republican party has always claimed to be a large tent. The tent may be too small for minorities, but it surely is large enough for an interesting assortment of colorful criminals and hypocrites.

Republican party members have become the caricatures, cynics have always had of politicians.

Late night comics have had a field day taking you and your party's antics and creating an entertaining parade of parodies these last six years. The circus environment has me wondering how many more Republicans are going to come out of the GOP clown car.

We have had Jack Abramoff, J. Stevens Grilies, David Safavian, Bob Ney, Mark Foley,Tom Delay, Jerry Lewis, Newt Ginrich, David Vitter, Duke Cunningham,
Conrad Burns, Ted Stevens, Rick Santorum, Scooter Libby, Alberto Gonzalez and now Larry Craig.

Republican politics; it’s the greatest freak show on earth. Voting for anyone on the Republican ticket will make the process seem like buying a scratch-off lotto ticket. After you scrape off the slick shiny coating you unveil either a racist, a child molester, a thief, an incompetent, or just a hypocrite.

The gay-sex side show has been pure entertainment and a major distraction from the ever-thinning ranks of faithful bushies and the Iraq war.

Turd blossom left and "tio taco" Alberto Gonzalez finally resigned leaving the Department of Justice a gutted shell, to join the other major agencies bereft of competent career government personnel who refused to sign Bush loyalty oaths.

So many people have left your administration that I hear the D.C. cab companies have a special rate for pickups at the West Wing. There are so many of your Republican buddies in jail, under investigation, in gay rehab or spending more time with their families that you may not be able to field a decent bowling team.

Although you may hear your lonely footsteps echo as you walk the corridors in the White House, you are hardly powerless.

You may be a lame duck, but you still have command of the largest military force in the world, and you are going to continue to push Congress to get more money for your senseless war by blackmailing spineless Democrats that don’t want to look as though they are weak on war.

I have no doubt in my American mind that you will sacrifice our remaining military force in a desperate effort to boost your “legacy” until your last day in office.

Since you are publicly vilified every day, you are left with the only prospect left to you, that history will vindicate you. You have a number of loyal bushies like Ari Fleischer and Karl Rove to rewrite history and make you look good.

How you will live with your criminal behavior after you leave office is yet to be known. Even psychopaths have bouts of remorse.

I guess you’ll cross that bridge when you get to it, if it has not been weakened by decay.

The constant unveiling of abhorrent truths about how you managed the presidency, the deviant behavior of Republican congressmen and the avarice of the republican party may finally fracture the already strained evangelical support.

Don’t worry about that now, have a great Labor Day junior.

Labor Day; the day we celebrate the American worker, you remember the American worker; the person you turned your back on as soon as you took office and invited business to help write laws and set policy. Cheney’s famous energy policy laid the groundwork for the Iraq war and bolstered the coffers of war profiteers with no-bid contracts.

By following the credo that anything that is good for business and the industrial-military complex is good for America, you have created a disastrous foreign policy, the largest wealth gap in history, a record number of uninsured Americans, and the highest rate of defaulted mortgages since the depression.

You have failed to protect our nation junior. Not only have you failed to be a champion for the average American, you have increased our health risks while lessening the availability of health care we will need afterwards.

Business interests have led you by the nose to accelerate the deterioration of air we breathe the water we drink, the food we eat, and you even increased the safety risks of the toys we buy for our children.

I wouldn’t just worry about trying to make your fool-hardy invasion of Iraq look good in the history books, I would also be concerned about the deplorable state of the economy, the deteriorating quality of life for the average American and the wretched state of the environment.

Thousands of dead bodies in the Mid East, increased crime in American streets, and shortened American life spans due to your hubris and disastrous decisions. will mark this point in American history as our nation's dark ages. This period will exemplify what happens when neo-conservative ideology hijacks the government of the most powerful nation on earth.

But on the positive side millions of people have risen up against you and your cronies. The backlash against Republican intolerance and American imperialism may take the pressure off of America as the world's major powers have already begun to decouple themselves from our economy and our foreign policy, leaving us isolated to sit in our own shit until we decide to clean up our government.

The countdown to the 08' elections has begun; the only questions remaining are how much more can you do to degrade our democracy and how many more Republicans will be exposed in the coming months?

The GOP clown car in the circus called "compassionate conservatives supporting family values" can pack a lot of hypocrites.
