Bush Wipes His Hand on Clinton, U.S.

Posted by John Wellington Ennis

Here, our former President George W. Bush does a publicity tour of a devastated Haiti, and after shaking hands with a Haitian, wipes his hand off on President Bill Clinton’s shirt. (at :50 in)

It rather speaks volumes about W’s contempt for others, as well as symbolizes the mess he freely wipes his hands of onto his Democratic successors.  In all of the ruins of Haiti, is there not one shoe in the rubble that someone could pick up and hurl at this arrogant oaf who drove our country into the ground like it was one of his Daddy’s many sports cars?

FOX Interviews Obama, Struggles to Prevent Him From Talking

Posted by John Wellington Ennis

This preposterously bullying interview on FOX with Brett Baier plays like a sketch comedy parody of a shallow, mutton-headed shill thinking he is doing Frost/Nixon, when really he is making such an ass out of himself, even Obama looks a little embarrassed for this eager little dimwit.

FOX has done everything it could dream up to distort whatever Obama has said or done, and rather than risk him speaking coherently to their carefully misguided viewers, they make sure they get their monkey to screech over every answer our President gives.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Posted by John Wellington Ennis

As this day is about tradition, here is the St. Patrick’s Day Special from my hometown Chicago, where they know how to have a St. Patty’s Parade (or two), seeing as how Los Angeles scrapped the parade this year due to budget woes.

What the Hell Does it Take to Fire Tim Geithner?

Posted by John Wellington Ennis

From The Smirking Chimp at Alternet.org:

This story isn’t going away. Someone has to go to jail. It’s clear that Geithner acted as the “chief facilitator” of industrial scale securities flim-flam which led directly to the Great Crash of ‘08. He needs to be held accountable for his actions.
