    With Robert Gates coming on board as the new Secretary of Defense, James Baker and his Iraq Study Group, as well as Lawrence Eagleberger and Alan Simpson at Jr.'s side, it seems that Poppy and his friends are coming to bail Jr. out...again.

    Like ion 1966 when he was arrested while at Yale on disorderly conduct charges. Or perhaps when he was arrested for a DUI in Maine on Labor Day weekend in 1976. And then there was the purchase of a failing Arbusto Energy by Reagan/Bush I supporters (Poppy was VEEP at the time), William DeWitt and Mercer Reynolds. Not only did they buy Arbusto, they made Jr. President of the new company, Spectrum 7. They also sold him a chunk of the Texas Rangers for a pittance, which he later sold at a profit. Needless to say, he didn't have much input into the Ranger's business decisions. But guess what? Two years after Arbusto was sold to Spectrum 7, that company was going belly up. And, you got it, Spectrum 7 was bought by Harken Energy in 1986. And, Harken had friends of the Bush family on its board.

    It should also be noted that Khalid Bin Mahfouz was on Harkens board, as well as the board of BCCI, which was used by the CIA to launder money before BCCI collapsed. This is important because at a time when Harken was hemorrhaging cash, a $25 million dollar Harken stock offereing was underwritten by Stephen's Inc headed by Jackson Stephens, a big-time contributor to Poppy Bush's campaign war chest. This offering was placed with the Union Bank of Switzerland, a joint venture partner with BCCI. Amazing what being the son of a VPOTUS can get done for you.

    And, of course there were the sales of Jr.'s Harken stock that he conveniently forgot to notify the SEC about. And golly, the stock tanked just a few short weeks later. The SEC investigated with no further charges. But guess what? The SEC chariman at the time was Richard C. Breeden, a friend of the Bush family and one time employee of Bush family consiglieri, James Baker.

    And now, after a mid-term election which was a repudiation og Jr.'s war in Iraq and his failure as a President, I can just hear it now. The plaintive call of a spoiled rich-kid in over his head..."Daaaaaaaady!"

    Replacing something that isn't working for something new = being "bailed out"?:rolleyes:

    I have to hand it to the lib propaganda machine. It irritates me greatly that conservatives/Republicans don't confront your public BS in public and show you for the knuckleheads you are.

    You've spun for so hard for so long, and covered just about every conceivable possibility, that no matter the outcome of events in Iraq, you libs are going to claim victory.

    Perfect analysis ! More evidence that the GOP can never please the libs because they thier only agenda is to destroy them as a means to power. They will destroy anything in thier path too---like America. Maybe the GOP outta come up with some really shity ideas---these loons would even fall for reverse psychology

    I'm always amazed by the people who supposedly want a change because something isn't working then attempt to hack on the person who works to bring change because something wasn't working...

    How many threads have we read on how Iraq needs a change? How often have we heard that the current policy wasn't working from those that are now beginning threads attempting to insult the President because he saw that what was happening wasn't working as it should?

    "If he'd just admit he made a mistake and take some action to change it!"

    How often have we heard something like that?

    Yes, when it's a life long pattern of Poppy Bush and his friends bailing Chimpy out of the messes he's made.

    Well, if you figure in all those people that the Bible says are in Hell, or at the end of Revelations that Christ sends to hell, I'd say pretty much anybody who doesn't belive in Him. At least according to that neat book that the Christians tend to believe in.

    Wow, this is the best you can come up with? So Bush had a business that failed, lets impeach the guy! Maybe Bush shoulda wised up and should of became a liberal. Maybe he should of considered accepting bribes, like a certain future majority leader. Maybe he should of been a judge that accepted bribes and manufactured evidence, like a certain future Intelligence Committee head. Or maybe he should of appointed such criminals in positions of power, like a certain democratic leader.


    Sorry to rain on your parade, but your ilk don't seem to be doing much better.

    Even as I malign Chimpy, I grudgingly praise him for seeking Poppy's assistance at his time. Bringing in the pragmatists from Poppy's administration may be key to bringing our troops home and reaching some sort of rational solution to the quagmire that is Iraq.
