How can the President ask for, Congress support $87 Billion in gifts to KBR & not ensure that our ground soldiers have proper armor on their Hum-Vee's?


Another shame on Bush'e/Congress' tax cut for the rich/gift to Haliburton/KBR.

Maureen Dowd makes a great point about Bush's answer to if he makes any mistakes:

After the Bay of Pigs, President Kennedy spoke to newspaper publishers and said: "This administration intends to be candid about its errors. For as a wise man once said, `An error does not become a mistake until you refuse to correct it.' . . . Without debate, without criticism, no administration and no country can succeed — and no republic can survive."

I think that was the 'killer moment' of the press conference. Either he is too dumb to think on his feet, or he is too arrogant to admit mistakes. I'm not sure which scares me more.
Here's something I put into an email to a friend - I think it's worth remembering.

"America is great, because we can, every 4 years, have a revolution. 100% of the Executive, 33% of the Senate & 100% of the House is able to be replaced through the will of the people. It is our duty as activists to make sure that they have an opportunity to make that choice. Only the voters en masse can turn the course of this country, and they can only do that with the choices that we give them."
