WASHINGTON -- President Bush stunned New York lawmakers on Tuesday with his threat to veto any legislation blocking the takeover of some U.S. port operations by a company run by the United Arab Emirates.
He said:"I want those who are questioning it to step up and explain why all of a sudden a Middle Eastern company is held to a different standard than a Great British company," . "I am trying to conduct foreign policy now by saying to the people of the world, `We'll treat you fairly."
Well, for starters, that great british ( does that mean the company is british and great, or is that another one of his verbal stumbles?) company didn't have a hand in taking out the world trade center and killing 1000's of innocent people in the name of the church of england. They don't wake up in the morning uluating "death to america" until they fall asleep at night.
Then there's the Bush/Saudi connection, which is well documented...Doing a google search using "bush/saudi connection" yields 1,740,000 hits...now I don't know about you, but to me that's a bunch of fucking hits.
They played an excerpt from a speech Bush gave today on the radio, it was along the lines of the above quote. But there was something in his voice...it was different from the usual bumbling chuck of a good old boy smarmy shit we usually hear. This was the voice of someone determined to pull something off. Something wrong . I was taken back to my days working in psych hospitals, dealing with the never ending conspiracies that occurred in that culture, and uncovering them. Frequently by the tone of the protestations coming from the guilty. The harder they come across, the more full of shit they are, and you can bank on it.
I read a detailed article the other day about "presidential signing statements". This basically allows the sitting president to sign a law and then side step it, by virtue of this "presidential statement".
Bush jr. has not vetoed shit, relying on the statement to sidestep or otherwise ignore laws and legislation. The anti torture bill is the most current example. The united states does not promote or condone torture, but the parameters of what constitutes torture is solely at the discretion of the president...In other words, fuck you, I do what I want.
But now, with this port operations deal, Bush is threatening a veto? What's up with that? What's so important about this port operations deal that would provoke the asshole in chief to threaten a veto of any legislation blocking it?
He's in it up to his fucking eyeballs...that's what.
And the harder he comes across the more full of shit he is...trust me, you can bank on it.
