More GOP Candidates Are Running From Bush
By Elaine Meinel Supkis
With Bush's popularity dropping below 34% this week as well as the results of his campaigning which drove down the election returns for GOP candidates, there is now an elephant stampede running from Bush. Calling Tarzan to the rescue!
From Capitol Hill Blue:
This place is like a high-school football locker room after the team lost the big game,” grumbles one Bush administration aide. “Everybody’s pissed and pointing the finger at blame at everybody else.”Bubble Boy bummed out? Who would have guessed! Maybe he should threaten Dover, PA, or tell SF they need a terrorist attack! Wait! There is more!
Republican gubernatorial losses in Virginia and New Jersey deepened rifts between the Bush administration and Republicans who find the President radioactive. Arguments over whether or not the President should make a last-minute appearance in Virginia to try and help the sagging campaign fortunes of GOP candidate Jerry Kilgore raged until the minute Bush arrived at the rally in Richmond Monday night.
“Cooler heads tried to prevail,” one aide says. “Most knew an appearance by the President would hurt Kilgore rather than help him but (Karl) Rove rammed it through, convincing Bush that he had enough popularity left to make a difference.”
A confidential memo circulating among senior Republican leaders suggests that a new attack by terrorists on U.S. soil could reverse the sagging fortunes of President George W. Bush as well as the GOP and "restore his image as a leader of the American people."Is this why Condi and Cheney's spawn are in the Middle East trying to stir up revolution? Women's rights? To provoke bin Laden into attacking again?
The closely-guarded memo lays out a list of scenarios to bring the Republican party back from the political brink, including a devastating attack by terrorists that could “validate” the President’s war on terror and allow Bush to “unite the country” in a “time of national shock and sorrow.”
Well, Homeland Security is run by a dual-citizen Israel Firster and of course, we know what that means!
Someone has to conveniently leave the front door open again!
Well, I think all of America will run from Bush if he allows yet another attack. Period.
Too bad it is awful late.
