The Real Deal II - Bush/Abramoff/Rove Photo

"In the picture, President Bush is talking with Chief Raul Garza of the Kickapoo tribe of southwest Texas.
The NY Times, which published the photo, reports:[The picture] leaves unanswered questions about how Mr. Abramoff and the tribal leader, whom he was trying to sign as a client, gained access to a meeting with the president on the White House grounds that was ostensibly for a group of state legislators who were supporting Mr. Bush’s 2001 tax cut plan.
The photo of Abramoff with Bush at a private meeting undermines White House claims that any meetings between the two occured atwidely attendedholiday parties. The White House has confirmed the picture’s authenticity.
Time Magazine has more details on the meeting: Talking about the photo, Abramoff has told friends, “I was standing right next to the window and after the picture was taken, the President came over and shook hands with me, and we chatted and joked.” A photograph of that scene as described by Abramoff was shown to TIME two weeks ago."
FYI, I am busy watching the Olympics with my friend Joe Biden and he said I could just copy and paste this text straight from ThinkProgress if I reformat it and fix their typos. Also, I stand by my the "other" photos of Bush and Abramoff here.
And if you are curious as to where more photos are or what happened to them read this.

Fitz, I'm a little dissapointed you boys like Joe..

I don't know what it is....I think he's really dissapointing as a politician.

That's the guy who stood for going into Iraq after it was all found to be a lie and said we should anyway, while republicans like chuck hagel, john mccain or democrat harry reid finally turned against the war.

Something about him is way off...

Jack and Bush go up the hill to fetch a pail of water!

But anyway, Joe is a funny character...maybe he's cutout for a different job, instead of politics. Got a real family in the air force too!

Joe Biden, huh? Since when you and Joe are buddies, then, that means the little soldier, Irve, and I are having a beer tonight (if I don't step on him. I am a tallest person). Well you know, Irve needs legal advice from yours truly... Bush keeps putting his foot in his mouth more and more. The more photos come out with him and Abramoff the more that he gets in trouble! Enjoy the olympics!

Joe Biden will always be a follower. A pick a leader to hang out with. I don't think the Indians are very happy with the GOP giving their money to charity as Abramoff ripped them off! I hope Bode Miller wins tomorrow!

That's right. Biden probably heard that Fitz had a fridge full of Red Stripe and rang his doorball w/o notice.

Is the foundation is already beginning to weaken?

"Scandal-rocked Republicans in the House of Representatives claimed publicly Bush drew an ovation when he defended his program to eavesdrop without court warrants on Americans with suspected terrorist ties, a program that has been questioned by both Democrats and some Republicans.

But sources in the meeting, who asked not to be named as the meeting was formally closed, said lawmakers, anxious over polls showing waning faith in them and the president, called the President to task for his growing list of failures.

Many members of the president's party have voiced concerns about the $2.77 trillion federal budget that Bush proposed this week, which would boost defense spending but bring cuts in 141 domestic programs, from veterans health care to housing.

Others raised questions about Bush's domestic-spying program, saying his refusal to follow the law on allowing the National Security Agency to wiretap Americans will hurt the party in the upcoming mid-term elections.

While some Republicans tried to put a brave face on what was often a contentious meeting with the leader of their party, many admitted privately that most in the room showed displeasure with Bush and openly questioned both his commitment to the party and the American people."

mmm..I recall reading somewhere earlier in the week where Cheney made it painfully clear to the Republican members of congress to
support the President in his burgeoning budget and assorted other "didos" as they were ..
as the result of not?
--> no, zilch, nada funding/support for any re-elections
--> black-balled by Cheney, Rove and gang, e.g. smear campaigns.

Great Administration.. They only operate with fear tactics.
What supreme human beings.
What wonderful role models for our youth, don't you think?

Hey Fitzy,

If the Repubs won't govern in the best interest of all, and the Dems can't govern, then we must, MUST elect some viable third party candidates.

I appreciated what Mosley had to say on this issue:

"Imagine it. We could actually democratize America by taking power away from the two-party system and handing it over to the people. Other special parties would arise splintering off from the centrist attendants of the rich once we show them the way.

What I'm talking about here is the beginning of an American Evolution, a movement that will create a series of political interest groups that will transform our two-party system into a kind of virtual parliament. We could construct smaller political groups based on specific interests. There could be Black Party Congress members from Watts, Harlem, the Motor City and a dozen other inner-city bastions. All we have to do is have a fair representation in the House of Representatives to have an extraordinary impact on the wheels of government.

Farmers, women, the aged, angry young white men and, for that matter, true Republicans might create their own small parties/interest groups. These groups would not only have direct representation in the House of Representatives but would also begin to make deals with those people running for senator and President, police chief and mayor.

It's past the time when we black Americans can complain about how we are treated without ourselves trying to take the reins of power. A Black Voting Bloc would be a bold move. Some might say a radical move--too radical. But a country that incarcerates people of color at an eight-to-one ratio to whites played the race card way before Johnnie Cochran. If we could come together and see a way to put balance back in the American political landscape, then we should do it.


Because if we do not lead we will be led. And if those who have learned to despise, distrust and diminish us are the leaders, then our path will lead even farther away from our homes. We will wake up like strangers in our own beds. We, and our children, will be walking in uncomfortable shoes to poor jobs. We will be jeered on every corner, and every mirror we come across will distort our image.

Just so that it doesn't seem that I'm giving short shrift to this argument, let me try to explain why this kind of "political party" will be different from its interest-corporation counterparts. First, this kind of group will be a political unit more than a party. This unit should be patterned after interest groups that form around specific necessities of our particular community."

Unfortunately, it seems that the option of voting for third party candidates may not be available to us:
