The Scandal Makers

George Bush hasn't been able to take a shit for the last 6 years without the Dems and the mainstream media trying to make a scandal of it. Even with all the help they get from the media, nothing seems to stick....There is a reason for that.

The mainsteam media and the left have worked hand in hand to bash Bush at every turn. And yet NOTHING sticks. But they really believe that if they repeat the lies often enough, people will believe them. Here are just some of the supposed 'scandals' of the Bush admin. Sadly for the left, none have proven to be true.....

1. Stole the 2000 elections - Recounts by every major media outlet prove otherwise. Had the Supreme Court decided in Gore's favor, the Dems and the media would have nothing but the highest praise for the courts decision. The media did everything they could to sway the election, announcing that Gore had won while polls in the Western U.S. were still open.

2. Bush lied about WMD - Still, no proof of that whatsoever, just accusations. Being wrong is apparently now the same as lying. When John Kerry said he didn't own any SUV's was he mistaken or lying? Our intelligence agencies may have been mistaken, or Saddam may have ferried them out of the country as several of his former generals have testified. Funny isn't it, that 6 retired U.S. generals criticize the President and it's an instant media circus, but former Iraqi generals are completely ignored by the press.

3. Niger and Yellowcake - Bush never used the words "Niger" or "Yellowcake" in the 2003 SOTU. He did say, "The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quanities of uranium from Africa". British Intelligence to this day stands behind this intel report. Joe Wilson lied about how he got the assignment and lied in his report. He did this right before the election, an election in which he was an advisor and contributor to the Kerry campaign, and had been promised a high level position in the Kerry Regime. Note that not a single member of the mainsteam media has questioned Wilson's version of events.

4. Plame Gate - There is still no proof whatsoever that Bush or Cheney leaked Plames' name. No indictments pertaining to Plame. No convictions. Furthermore, Plame was not a covert op and Joey use to brag about her CIA credentials at D.C. parties.

5. Looting of the Baghdad Museum - Remember how the media crucified Bush and Rumsfeld for the looting of the Iraq Museum during the initial invasion? The media and the Dems howled for weeks only to find out that the aniquities had been safely stashed before the invasion.

6. Abu Ghraib - The actions of a few bad apples was all it took for the media and the Dems to claim that the U.S. used torture on a level equal to that of the Nazi's. No connection, no secret memo has ever shown that torture was ordered by higher-ups. Those that committed torture are being tried, convicted, and punished, as they should be. But the U.S. is not a purveyor of torture. The left knows it, the media knows it, but it wont stop them from telling the world that and inflaming more hatred against the U.S.

7. Bush AWOL - Lots of accusations, lots of forged documents just weeks before the presidential election. This one gets the Gold Medal for deceit. A major media organization makes a concerted effort to defame Bush and influence an election. Shameful. All they got was a black eye and a public that no longer trusts them. Dan Rather and his troupe of ass-clowns lost their jobs, but the president didn't.

8. Bush Visits Iraq - 2004 - Bush flies to Baghdad to join the troops for Thanksgiving. Anxious to undercut the Baghdad trip's impact with the public, liberal journalists began circulating the false story that the bird Bush had been photographed holding was a fake. This claim was endlessly retailed; John Kerry and Michael Moore repeated it, which should have been recognized as proof that it wasn't true, but so did many more respectable journalists. The media also played up the fact that Bush flew in secretly without notifying them. The Times was forced to print a retraction
"An article last Sunday about surprises in politics referred incorrectly to the turkey carried by President Bush during his unannounced visit to American troops in Baghdad over Thanksgiving. It was real, not fake."

9. Missing Weapons Cache - Shortly before the election, the media reported that the U.S. had bungled the job and allowed a huge cache of Iraqi weapons to disappear. The NYT reported, "Huge Cache of Explosives Vanished From Site in Iraq"
Except for one small thing: The story turned out to be completely bogus.

10. Stolen 2004 Elections - Ohio-Gate was the big scream from the left, yet after several investigations there is still not one shred of proof that anything out of the ordinary occurred in Ohio. In fact, Bush lost many states by smaller margins and didn't contest any of the results. The Dems are the sorest losers on the planet. The media tried hard to keep GOP voters from the polls, announcing in early exit polls that Kerry was winning in a landslide.

11. Flushed Korans - The left and the media pounced on this story about how U.S. soldiers were flushing the Koran to intimidate terrorists being held at Gitmo. Turned out to be a BOGUS story.

12. Killer Flu Virus - Remember the big flu virus right before the 2004 elections? There was a shortage of flu vaccines and their was going to be a flu pandemic. Kerry even made campaign commercials about it, claiming it was all Bush's fault. Turned out to be a non-story, no huge uptick in flu deaths that year, and no pandemic.

13. Mission Accomplished Banner - The banner was for the crew of the Lincoln which had just completed its tour of duty. It was not a banner for Bush. In fact, Bush said in his speech on the Lincoln, that while major combat operations had ended, there was much work remaining to be done regarding the recontruction, election of a new govt, and stabilizing the radical forces. To this day they are still whining about him wearing a flight suit.

14. Leaking Classified Docs To Media - Another non-scandal that hasnt' gained any traction. As Commander In Chief, as the Chief Executive, as the President of the United States, Bush has inherent priviledges that allow him to declassify information as he sees fit. It bothers the Dems and the media to no end that the President has powers that don't require approval from them.

15. NSA Wiretaps - Wiretaps to monitor calls to and from suspected terrorists. Something every president has done. Remember, it was the Kennedy's admin that was tapping MLK's phone. Yet, had there been an attack on the U.S. because we chose to ignore intelligence gathering operations, the left would be screaming bloody murder that Bush didn't do enough to stop the terrorists.

16. Katrina - Calls for Bush's head over what turned out to be the worst natural disaster in U.S. history. And it's all Bush's fault. Any honest person would admit that it would not have mattered who was in the White House, the result would have been the same. The federal govt is a clusterfuck of bureauacracy. Ignore the fact that the mayor of New Orleans and the Governor of LA were inept fools who did nothing to alleviate suffering, this was Bush's fault because Bush doesn't like black people.

17. Global Warming - It wasn't a problem until Bush got elected. Now in the last 5 years the world is coming to an end, glaciers melting, temperatures rising, more hurricanes. All because of George.

18. The Economy is in shambles - Home ownership at it's highest lever ever. Lowest unemployment rates in decades. CPI and GNP both up. Booming stock market, new jobs being created, tax cuts, and all during war time. What a failure this president is.

19. Dubai Port Deal - turns out most of our ports are ALREADY foreign owned. Pelosi, Boxer, Feinstein, and Reid had no problems with the Chinese taking over the Long Beach ports. But the thought of arabs owning it was a scandal. Forget the fact that these same politicians approved the sale of 60 F-16 fighters to the UAE, numerous munitions and weapons technology, AND Dubai services most of our warships in that hemisphere. The Dems were heartbroken when DP World pulled their bid, another non-scandal slipping through their fingers.
Everyday it's another manufactured scandal from the left. They think this is the way to win elections, by deceiving America. It hasn't worked so far. Why do suppose they haven't gotten the message?

"Nothing sticks"? This blog is either brilliant parody or oblivious idiocy.

Fox News - Bush at 33%. Guess what? It's sticking, idiot. Pull your head out of the sand. No matter how much you cry about it, it doesn't change the facts.

Brad, I thought FOX was a propaganda machine for the GOP and was full of shit. They are a beacon of light when they arent favorable to Bush though, right?

brad, lets say I worked at your place of employment and everday I spread viscious lies about you:

"Brad cheats on his spouse",
"brad told the boss you left work early",
"brad says you cheat on your expense reports",
"i saw brad smoking week in the parking lot",
"brad was masturbating in his office"

Wouldnt really matter that they were all lies would it? Your 'approval' rating at work would not be favorable.

And then I would say to everybody, "its no wonder nobody likes brad, look at all the shit he pulls at work everyday"

6 years of bashing? No, he skyrocketed to amazing heights after 9/11. The whole country mobilized behind the president, which was the right thing to do.

However, what he did with the good will of the American people was not the right thing to do. I'd say even Faux News recognizes that his popularity may reflect some kind of "hey...maybe he's not doing so great" realization.

Big government + big oil = a match made in gas price heaven! I wonder if Condie ever rode aboard the tanker named after her...

I hope the profits keep her warm at night while fixed income US citizens freeze to death next winter.

Please, Matt. I read the LA Times everyday. For 5 months all we heard from the left was the phrase "RUSH TO WAR".
Prior to that it was "BUSH STOLE THE ELECTION".
And since the invasion began, it's been one manufactured scandal after another with nothing but innuendo and wild conspiracy theories to back them. All in an attempt to thwart and derail the war effort.

Success in Iraq is VERY BAD NEWS for the democrats and they know it.

Whats really funny is that I listed 19 non-scandals and nobody has bothered to argue that they are legitimate scandals.

Why? Because they are bogus and they know it. Taking a page from Karl Marx, "repeat a lie often enough and people will believe it"

It looked to me like everyone was on board for the jaunt to Afghanistan, which was where the big cheese - er, turban - was camped out. I was behind that and I still am.

Hell, if we capture him I'd take a spot in the firing squad (firing a rifle, that is) if I won the lottery to do so.

When talk turned to striking Iraq, that's when the "put the brakes" on started to occur.

I don't know if it's all a smear campaign against the guy or not.

Personally, I don't trust the guy. I don't like his ties to big oil, I don't like his connections to Diebold, I don't like his choices in his cabinet or for VP or for defense secretary.

I don't like the reasoning behind the war in Iraq and I'm not behind it. I feel like we had them in a stranglehold and every time they made the mistake of flipping the switch on one of their mobile radar units, they got a HARM down the gullet in return.

That said, if it ends up a success (we get out and they continue on with a democracy), I'll be the first in line to congratulate whoever is responsible in the current administration.

No puppet regimes, no permanent military presence. Out.

Well, I'll take a stab at it since nobody else did. First I do agree that if framed the way you put it, nothing is very scandalous. But you've ignored the facts in several of them, and others are just plain crap anyway.
The supreme court has no business deciding an election, with as much trouble as was had, they should have just re-voted. The actual final numbers were:

Gore: 50,996,116
Bush: 50,456,169

That ignores the state-wieghed averages of course, and is one reason so many beleive we should throw out the electoral college. But by the numbers... bush did steal the election, despite its veneer of legality. Another interesting point, It's said that Bush won the most votes of any president ever elected, yet Gore lost here with more votes than ever elected a president, while actually getting more votes than the elected president. One can easily see how it looks like a stolen election.

2. How you can ridicule other's conspiracy theories while coming up with your own about unproven WMD's being secretly moved to unknown locations (while avoiding our excellent spy satelites which did manage to catch those fake mobile labs) I have no idea. However there is this:
State Department Memo: "16 Words" Were False

3. see 2 above. As for Wilson, what did he lie about? There is no proof his wife sent him on that trip, it doesnt even make any sense, since Wilson was the obvious man for the job, as the Deputy Chief of Mission at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, Iraq. He was hailed as "truly inspiring" and "courageous" by George H. W. Bush after sheltering more than one hundred Americans at the embassy. When Saddam sent a note to Wilson (along with other embassy heads in Iraq) threatening to execute anyone sheltering foreigners in Iraq, Wilson publicly repudiated the dictator by showing up to a press conference wearing a homemade noose around his neck. Saddam offered a public apology for the diplomatic note. Wilson later served as U.S. ambassador to Gabon and São Tomé and Príncipe under President George H. W. Bush and helped direct Africa policy for the National Security Council under President Bill Clinton. With his combination of guts and knowledge of Iraq and Africa, Sending him just made sense.

Within the C.I.A., the exposure of Ms. Plame is now considered an even greater instance of treachery. Ms. Plame, a specialist in non-conventional weapons who worked overseas, had "nonofficial cover," and was what in C.I.A. parlance is called a NOC, the most difficult kind of false identity for the agency to create. While most undercover agency officers disguise their real profession by pretending to be American embassy diplomats or other United States government employees, Ms. Plame passed herself off as a private energy expert. Intelligence experts said that NOCs have especially dangerous jobs. from the New York Times

Why should anyone question Wilson's statements? He is obviously someone who is unafraid of threats, be they by dictators or rouge presidents, and both he and his wife were important members in the fight against despotism and tyranny, or terrorism if you like.

4. just lump 2,3 & 4 together since its all the same issue. But you speak of Mr. Wilson as if you heard him bragging about his wife's job at a party, where was that? when did it happen? It didnt, you're just regurgitating Drudge.

5.The loss of centuries of history to private individuals rather than in the museum IS a crime. We never should have gone in there without the wherewithal to guard these priceless treasures. here's a quote from American University in Cairo "To our knowledge, about 14,000 objects were stolen in the looting of the museum on April 11th and 12th after the fall of Baghdad," said Gibson, director of the Oriental Institute Expedition to Nippur at the University of Chicago.
There were some things hidden away by the museum employees. But that doesnt mean it didnt happen.

6. Abu Gharib is just a drop in the bucket, the military never really investigates itself, and this administration has a habit of promoting prosecutors and making cases dissapear. IT's not a few bad apples, if it wasnt allowed, nobody would have allowed it, that's life in the military, soldeirs dont turn their back on human dignity unless told to do so. They know far better than most of us that if you start treating people worse than animals that you get the same treatment back. And I'm pretty sure none of them want to be tortured. But hey, judge for yourself if this was done by a few "bad apples" The Memory Hole > Photos of Iraqis Being Abused by US Personnel

The New York Times > Washington > Army Details Scale of Abuse of Prisoners in an Afghan Jail
The Memory Hole > Document: Intel Agents Who Saw Detainee Abuse Were Threatened
American Civil Liberties Union : FBI E-Mail Refers to Presidential Order Authorizing Inhumane Interrogation Techniques

7. Bush AWOL... I have no data on this, but I do think it is interesting that bush simply doesnt release the official paperwork, You know the govt has it, they've got my dad's from veitnam, it's not even expensive to get copies. Unless they have been purposely purged, which would be even more interesting, now wouldnt it?

8. LOL! I never heard this one, but it certainly is funny, imagine, not even being able to trust him with a real turkey! hahhahahaha

9. Missing weapons- if by this you are referring to the Al Qaqaa Weapons Cache, you might want to actually check on that, it has been well proven, there are several quotes by soldiers who knew it was a source of weapons for insurgents et.al. I suggest reading this:


I can't take any more typing, more later.

1. Joe, your first point has to do with ignorance. I'm not surprised that most Americans with their 10th grade education level do not understand the electoral college.
2. The State Dept memo concerning yellowcake reflects an opinion from some intelligence sources that had doubts. Nobody said to the president, this story is bunk. In fact, the U.K. and other intelligence agencies to THIS DAY stand by it.
3. Wilson and Plame were KERRY supporters and Wilson was eyeing a cabinet position with the future Kerry administration. His wife sent him on a mission with the sole intent of discrediting Bush. He went to the NYT with his 'story' and 'book deal' in hand.
4. I could easily say you are just regurgitating what the NYT prints. The NYT has barely any credibility. Drudge does not write news stories, they only LINK to news stories.
5. Museum looting...the story was wildly exaggerated by the media. The Germans looted museums during WWII. When fighting a war you don't usually have the luxury of saying, "Lets parachute some soldiers into Baghdad before we invade so they can guard the museum." Its sad that scumbags looted their own history for cash but some Iraqi's did just that.
6. Abu Ghraib...mistreatment of prisoners in our federal system is not suppose to occur either, yet guards routinely abuse prisoners. This doesnt mean the Warden condoned it or ordered it. Human beings with absolute power do shameful things.
7. What havent they released concerning Bush's national guard service? Why cant they find a single person that served with Bush who will substantiate this bogus claim? Why did they need to resort to forged memos to try and make their point?
8. The turkey story is the perfect example of the media bias against Bush. There intent was to say, "He is a photo-op faker, the turkey was fake and he flew into Iraq under cover of darkness". Turned out to be another lie from the media. Google it.
9. This was a manufactured story that was dropped on the president a week before the election. They held this story for almost 2 yrs and then waited for the opportune moment to release it. Then it turned out to be bogus.
