Another reminder that George W. Bush and the GOP broke a country

Once again, we are reminded that the Iraq War was an exercise in stupidity that is unmatched in US history. It was engineered by George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and the rest of the GOP, and this colossal screw up promises to resonate for decades to come. The latest reminder

Yes, of Course: George W. Bush Was the Worst President Ever

If you want to start a great, um, “conversation” with someone on the right, just say something that is brutally obvious and honest like…   George W Bush was the worst president in United States history.  That’s just my opinion, of course, and there may be a few historians who

Anybody Wanna Buy Our “Mansion”? Politifact Surrenders Its Credibility

As those who have been following this blog for a while know, it’s about uncovering lies and encouraging the use of facts to move the progressive movement forward. The problem with saying things that are provably false is, eventually someone will discover the falsehood, and will tend to not believe

Investigation and Due Process of the Bushies: Are we Americans or are We Mice?

I am excited at the prospects offered by the Obama Administration, and I am looking forward to a future that is much brighter than anything we've seen since we ceded the government to the neocons 28 years ago, culminating in the last eight years of pure hell on earth. The

Why the Bailout Plan Was Destined to Fail

A couple of months back, it seemed quite obvious that the economy was on the verge of collapse, and something drastic was necessary, immediately, to forestall an absolute disaster akin to the Great Depression. On this  very blog, I recommended the bailout plan be passed, albeit with many restrictions, and

Congress is Back! Impeach Bush NOW! It’s Absolutely Necessary!

Over the weekend, I received the following very naive and shocking e-mail from, which I am re-posting in its entirety: —————————— Dear Milt, Congratulations on the fabulous and historic election of President Barack Obama!!! As we celebrate our new President-elect and all the changes he will bring to our

Cutting the Crap: Conservative, My Ass!

You know, I rarely agree with David Frum on anything, but much of his assessment of the McCain campaign in  this morning's Washington Post hits the nail pretty much on the head. Here's an excerpt: There are many ways to lose a presidential election. John McCain is losing in a

Why McCain Was Always Going to Lose: Bye Bye Right Wing!

The Republican Party is truly screwed, and I think they’re just beginning to realize it.   See, the one basic truism of politics is that every election cycle is different. It’s really not possible to compare 2008 with 2006, or 2004 to 2000, etc. I know, the pundits try, but

Keep an Eagle Eye on Condi

There’s been a lot of press about the fact that the Bushies sent an envoy to Iran this week to begin talks regarding Iran’s nuclear program. Most of the press has been glowing, either praising the Bushies for finally holding talks with someone they don’t like, or pointing out, quite

Gee, You Mean Bushies are Liars? Who Knew?

Why is everyone going ga-ga over Scott McClellan’s revelations that George W. Bush and his administration suck? Are the rest of us becoming like the right wingers, where we have so little faith in our opinions that we need validation from others to even have them? McClellan has written a

Journalists Bought and Paid for With Your Tax Dollars

There is an excellent but ultimately very disturbing article in this morning’s New York Times which deserves a look. It demonstrates two things; it shows that the Bush Administration has been actively propagandizing to its very own people, which is disturbing enough. But it also demonstrates the extent to which

More Bush Cronyism: New HUD Secretary Unqualified — Shocked and Awed!

While everyone was wringing their hands over whether or not small town Pennsylvanians were bitter, or whether or not Barack Obama may have been one hell of a radical when he was eight years old, George W. Bush was meeting with the Pope and nominating yet another crony to his

“Compassionate Conservative” Bush Tells Poor Kids to Go to Hell!

So, check out this bit of hubris from George W. Bush, the worst president in US History. This was from the beginning of his press conference yesterday… Good morning.  In just 10 days the State Children’s Health Insurance Program, known as S-CHIP, is set to expire.  This important program helps
