Bush's Broken Promise Worse Than Craig's

Posted by libhom Sunday, October 07, 2007

Republicans are suddenly discovering the idea that politicians should keep their word when it comes to Larry Craig. Sen. John Ensign, chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, postured self-righteously:

"I think it is best for the U.S. Senate. I think it is best for his party that if he just keeps his word. He gave us his word that he would do something. He's backing out on us, and I don't think it is the right thing to do."

Compare this to Ensign's silence on Bush.

In his pre-war rhetoric, Bush continually promised the American people that he was pursuing diplomatic options with Iraq and that he wanted peace.
"I'm willing to give peace a chance to work," Bush said. "I want the United Nations to work. I want him to do what he said he would do. But for the sake of our future, now's the time. Now's the time."
(CNN.com 9/22/02)

We now know that Bush was determined to go to war with Iraq no matter what. This was a promise broken by Bush to get Congress and the American people to go along with a war resolution on Iraq, despite growing doubts about his lies on WMDs in Iraq and supposed links between mortal enemies, Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden.

Why are Republicans more upset by a relatively minor broken promise by Craig than a devastating broken promise by Bush?

The answers are homophobia and political offices that are for sale to the highest campaign contributors.

War profiteers own the politicians and much of the media (e.g., GE owns NBC and MSNBC). So, it is not surprising that little would be said of Bush's catastrophic broken promise.

Craig himself invokes little sympathy. Throughout his slimy political career, he promoted and reveled in the very heterosexist bigotry that is falling upon himself. He is getting a terrible taste of his own medicine.

  1. you know LGH, ...this is just another perfect example of how the current breed of traitorous , immoral -cild hating , murderous politicians, just love to drag out their most convenient political football , to do ONE THING and one thing alone..stir up the fundie nut bag voter base. In this case they can appear to have some iota of INTERGRITY - ha ! AS IF.
    Lies , lies, more lies - thats all we all get. OH on google video the is a film called Zeitgeist..omg - see it. If you can see it all in one sitting or on youtube its in two parts..the fed reserve (more history there, then in Russo's film may he rest in piece) and a four part segments on the world trade center. Its a really excellent film worth the time.

    Bush's broken promises and lies demand nothing short of Impeachment and let me tell ya, i am so desparate for integrity I don't care which party does it. Zeitgeist shows us clearly and with non hyperbolic information just what we are up against..a new world order conceived in the early early 20th century to basically wage war , fund all sides for ONLY their profits.

    What is so sad - to me at least is that somehow i think more people get this..oddly they do NOT. We are brainwashed admittedly that is a lot to fend off. Its important to remember as well the LARGE majority of people do not read or know what a blog even is...so many are in the dark. Its not a good sign for things to come. The government does not listen to us. AT ALL. we still do not really know if our votes are counted.

    The only way i can see things improving..is a complete melt down of the status quo - and a painful process along the way - what will emerge from the rubble ..remains to be seen.

    signed - merry sunshine aka - PP

    and thanks for noticing my posts,it means a lot to me. XXOO

  3. Your posts deserve the recognition.

    You are spot on when it comes to impeachment. Any politician that opposes impeachment is violating their oath or affirmation of office to uphold and defend the Constitution.
