Big Dan's Big News Jan 18, 2009

Wilkes-Barre Times Leader publisher Richard L. Connor kissing Bush's ass again in yet another lousy column of his. He gets to write them because he runs the paper. Otherwise people would laugh at him. At least he broke his consecutive string of columns about Blagojevich!

Some highlights of Connor's ridiculous column:

"There are areas...where Bush has excelled."

● He was President when the United States was attacked on Sept. 11, 2001. He was decisive in his response and showed admirable leadership both at home and abroad. (bd: by attaking Iraq which had nothing to do with 9/11! and also Bush didn't keep 3,000 Americans safe, he should've immediately resigned. I'm sure if there was a Democratic president, Connor would have been in the forefront calling for impeachment. Connor fails to mention that's it's documented that Bush had plans to attack Iraq BEFORE 9/11 and fails to mention Cheney's secret energy meetings with Ken Lay and others discussing how to divvy up the Iraq oil fields...all BEFORE 9/11. Connor fails to mention this, too: the costs of the Iraq & Afghanistan: Per Month - $12.3 billion; Per Week - $2.9 billion; Per Day - $410 million; Per Hour - $17 million; Per Minute - $284,722; Per Second - $4,745)

● The Bush administration has been forceful in trying to bring calm and to allocate money to industries fighting to survive. (bd: Bush and Paulson handed trillions to the banksters and nothing to people losing their homes)

● He paved the way for democracy in Iraq and other countries. (bd: OH MY GOD!!!)

● Lincoln was criticized, as Bush has been, for running afoul of the Constitution and civil liberties. (bd: Connor compares Bush to ABE LINCOLN!!! Yeah! Bush is a regular "ABE LINCOLN"!!! Connor must be living in another country than we are!!!)

● He will not be known for a public display of intellectual depth. (bd: Possibly the ONLY correct sentence in the column)

Connor also fails to mention the BILLIONS Bush funnelled to his family and friends via these wars.

Another incredibly lousy column by Richard L. Connor

Below: Bush family war profiteers - ALSO not mentioned by Richard L. Connor. Did ABE LINCOLN's family profit from war???

Special commentary by Big Dan: "President Obama should appoint an 'ELECTIONS CZAR' to get rid of electronic voting machines and go back to hand-counted paper ballots and insure that every vote counts. Election Day should, the most important day in the United States, more important than Christmas, should be a holiday and citizens would be free to participate in counting the paper ballots because they have the day off. If Obama doesn't do this, he's not serious about democracy. I appoint Bev Harris of as the first Elections Czar. If Obama does not do this, he's just as bad as the Republicans."
