Fair & Balanced...

in D.C. equals the Washington Post and the Washington Times as far as I can tell.
Seeing that the Times steers hard to the right and is basically a GOP (Rev. Moon owned) mouthpiece I am having a hard time figuring out if they are accurate and trustworthy. Take these two stories for example:
which is 100% wrong, and
which if correct is 100% scary!
"President Bush feels betrayed by several of his most senior aides and advisors and has severely restricted access to the Oval Office, administration sources say. The president's reclusiveness in the face of relentless public scrutiny of the U.S.-led war in Iraq and White House leaks regarding CIA operative Valerie Plame has become so extreme that Mr. Bush has also reduced contact with his father, former President George H.W. Bush, administration sources said on the condition of anonymity."
Matt Drudge adds on his site:
"The sources said Mr. Bush maintains daily contact with only four people: first lady Laura Bush, his mother, Barbara Bush, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Undersecretary of State Karen Hughes. The sources also say that Mr. Bush has stopped talking with his father, except on family occasions."
Reads like a multi-generational meeting of the La Leche League! Mr. President, please pull it together. Trust me, Dick Cheney is not going to be around much longer and '09 is a long long ways away. Have you taken any vacation days this year?

Well, I like I have been telling my fellow Republicans. GW doesn't have very good advisors. This second term has make this very apparent.

Many of my fellow Republicans are sore with me because I speak the truth about how bad GW's second term has been.

Boy do I yearn the Reagan days. At least he was a real Republican and stuck to his guns whether it was popular or not.

So much for family values at 1600 PA Ave.... eh?

Boy, I would like to know what the Thanksgiving table discussions would be like at Camp David :.)

My thought is that Bush Sr. was head of the CIA. While his hands are far from clean, to learn his son was responsible - even if only by association - of leaking a covert op - even if not covert at the time which is a legal not a moral point - had to be a body blow.

Factor in the Freudian father-son "I got re-elected, you didn't" blarney plus Gov. Jeb whose electoral machinations decided the election, so yeah, I'd guess it'll be a tense Thanksgiving at the Bush household.

Oh, to be a fly on the wall....

Listen to Michael Savage's radio show, "The Savage Nation." At least he is a conservative who is not afraid to criticize the White House.

Well, a friend of mine who worked on the McCain campaign with me a few years back in my homestate said to me the other day, "Leaving the Republican party and becoming a decline would not do any good. I need to stay in the party and fight and make some changes in the GOP." I don't know if I have the fire in the belly anymore!

As much as I hate Family Feud, this one is juicy.

The vacation idea is good, too. I mean, he's out of the country now and the Senate is compromising. Condi is brokering deals in the Mideast. What can we expect tomorrow? I say, stay in Asia, W. Eat some Kung Pow for me.

To la contessa,

Why are you a Republican? What is it that you think the Republican party represents? Dubya IS sticking to his fact he's "Staying the course!" even though this unravelling disaster keeps closing in on him. Sometimes one has to "swerve" or change or try a new perspective in order to avoid collapse and ruin! And Michael Savage is a phony - it ain't his real name- he's just trying to save his own behind when all of this (criminal activity)comes to light which it will, thanks to PJF.

What father would want a son that took a power country and messed it up. Funny how Bushie only speaks with girls? As for truth and honesty well what did you expect after the stolen election. I do feel bad for Republicans because all are not like the Bush team. I got sick when I saw the pictures of the dead people we killed with our gas/mustard stuff. What have we become under the direction of this President.

To BlueWild,

The reason why I became a Republican because of their philosophy of limited government. But now under Bush's watch, it doesn't seem to be the case. He is not a Republican in my eyes. So just because I am a Repubican it doesn't mean that I agree with everything that the GOP does. Like I have been saying, I regret voting for him the second time around. We both can agree to disagree on whatever political philosophy we hold. I am always trying to keep an open mind.

Obviously you have an open mind. I really was wondering because it seems a lot of Republicans agree with him so that he "appears" to represent the Republican party. I'm really not in any party. I maintain a healthy distrust of many politicians.....and TV preachers.

Hi Bluewild,

Sometimes it is best not to be in a political party. But in my case, I have to because my position in local government.

Sometimes I find that the Bush Republicans tend to flock like sheep! LOL I remember when I was working for the McCain campaign in my homestate as his campaign chairman, The state Bush campaign vilified me because I am a 'maverick' and called me all kinds of names in the book. Oh, when I ran for elector of my Congressional district in 2000 at my state party convention, they had put a Bush supporter against me. I had lost by one lousy vote. I have campaigned vigerously. I had this thing in the bag, but I was told by a friend that the vote count was sabotaged because they didn't want a 'troublemaker' like me (i.e. McCain supporter to be an elector) Some people were forced to change their vote for the other person otherwise they would suffer political consequences. It was very brutal.

This is free country, so I thought last time I checked. I have every right to question authority and if I don't agree with my party leaders that is too damn bloody bad. God gave me a mind and I am going to think for myself. I am no rubber stamp that is for sure.

I don't get along with the WASPY GOPers. They are threatned by an Italian American Princess who is not afraid to speak her mind when deemed necessary. LOL!

Well, I guess I have to take back the GOP from the establishment. If I ever ran for office, they probably would shoot me!

Take care got to get back to work in the world of workers comp.

I was at Walgreen's during my lunchbreak this afternoon, and I was reading one of those tabloids which reported that Dubya is off the wagon and that he had suffered a nervous breakdown in private because of the war, gas prices and the indictment.

Have you guys heard of this?
