    More Bad News May Be on the Way for Bush

    57 minutes ago Add Top Stories - AP to My Yahoo!


    By TERENCE HUNT, AP White House Correspondent

    WASHINGTON - In one of the darkest weeks of his administration, President Bush (news - web sites) saw America's reputation sullied, the U.S. effort in Iraq (news - web sites) damaged and his own campaign for re-election clouded. And more bad news may be on the way.


    While the world already has been horrified by pictures of American soldiers abusing Iraqi prisoners, the Pentagon (news - web sites) warns there are many more photos and videos that have not been disclosed.


    They show "acts that can only be described as blatantly sadistic, cruel and inhuman," embattled Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld told Congress.


    From the White House to Capitol Hill, policy-makers are worried that the United States faces lasting damage abroad — particularly in the Middle East — from the pictures of naked Arab men being tortured and humiliated by American soldiers, the same forces sent to Iraq to liberate the country from Saddam Hussein (news - web sites)'s torture and repression.


    Analysts describe the pictures as great recruiting tools for al-Qaida and other extremist groups and said they undermine America's claims to a moral high ground. Rumsfeld said the impact was "radioactive."


    Bush, in his weekly radio address Saturday, said, "They are a stain on our country's honor and reputation." He said the abuses were the work of a few and do not reflect the overall character of the 200,000 members of the U.S. military who have served in Iraq in the past year.


    Six months from the November elections, Iraq weighs heavily on the president.


    April was the deadliest month yet for American soldiers in Iraq and May is off to a bloody start.


    On the diplomatic front, the administration does not know who will take power in Iraq from the United States in a June 30 handover.


    Costs are soaring. The administration has sent Congress an unexpected $25 billion request for Iraq and Afghanistan (news - web sites).

    Bush WILL win re-election.

    He is beating Kerry in almost every poll, and history is on our side.

    No senator has ever been elected President, and no sitting wartime President has ever been unseated except for Lydon Johnson.

    Bush WILL win.

    Oh yeah, welcome to the board.

    THE RIGHT IS RIGHT

    As the world continues to hold America up to a DOUBLE STANDARD, and pressure from the liberal media continues to spin "nakedness" as "torture" with the help of the rest of liberal European nations and Al Jihra Arab TV, the liberals are singing with glee.

    The worse things get for America, the better the liberals love it. Exactly why is it these people are "good" for America? And exactly how is it "they" could have changed anything?

    If Al Gore were President right now, we'd still be having terrorist attacks here on American soil with the liberal agenda of terrorist appeasement, and we'll have that again if kerry is elected.

    I not sure of the full list of senators that have been elected president but the most recent that comes to mind is John Kennedy. Come on Gop guy you can do better than that.

    I have complete faith that the President is going to win and in a landslide. Politics like most things in life can change overnight. I just dont see that happening with Kerry as the Dem Nominee. But it looks like they are thinking of pulling a Lautenburg.

    I see that you're a very narrow minded individual as well.

    Ok, that was a blatant slip up, sorry. That's the last time I rely on info from somebody before I check it out myself.

    Do you know who told me that? OCA!!!! God I can't believe I actually trusted his words!

    Shoot me now.
