President Bush: Leaking on Himself
President Bush turns out to be the leaker that he vowed to track down and fire. Of course, he says he declassified the parts of the documents he leaked – and even though they had discredited information designed to mislead us about Iraq, President Bush says he did it so we would have “the truth.”
I’m feeling something I didn’t even think was possible: I’m actually disappointed in him. This is just such smalltime, third-grade style lying. Where’s the class? Maybe that’s what declassify really means. President Bush is just such a low-rent, classless dumb-ass, that he’s declassifying the Presidency. He’s gone from a 40-year-old booze-swilling drunk in some tavern restroom taking a leak, to the leader of the Free World, taking distorted and discredited information and making a leak.
All I can keep telling myself is, “Thank God the Iraq War is going so well, or these revelations would be a big problem.” By the way, when the NSA story broke, the White House went out of its way to reassure Americans that this was only for calls to other countries. In the last week, it was revealed that, no, actually it was for domestic calls and emails as well. This is your White House: when they’re caught in one lie they run out another, and there’s so many, that the truth gets buried in the B.S.
Now the NSA is claiming they have the right to know where Americans hide their Easter eggs. Folks, when is this going to stop?
