The Bush Puppet Show Rolls On

One has to wonder about the GOP Base. I’m talking about the Bush’s puppets in the GOP who refuse to back down on forging ahead in Iraq and who still do not come to grips with the fact that it’s an illegitimate war. Every criticism is attacked from that puppet base as being “unsupportive of the troops”.

So the Democrats finally roll out something that halfway makes sense and the GOP puppets still won’t budge. I say halfway because anything short of a full pullout plan is a halfway measure. Enough public opinion polls have shown that the majority of the US population does not support the idea of troops in Iraq and the GOP puppet show ignores that. I wonder what power Bush has over these puppets to make them behave in that manner? Bush by all measures should be lame duck and packing his bags by now. What are they afraid of at this point?

They should be more afraid of their voter base. When the senate elections come up again, there will be a list of senators who voted against this measure. Just for the record, here is the puppet show list.

Alexander (R-TN)
Allard (R-CO)
Barrasso (R-WY)
Bond (R-MO)
Brownback (R-KS)
Bunning (R-KY)
Burr (R-NC)
Chambliss (R-GA)
Coburn (R-OK)
Cochran (R-MS)
Coleman (R-MN)
Collins (R-ME)
Corker (R-TN)
Cornyn (R-TX)
Craig (R-ID)
Crapo (R-ID)
DeMint (R-SC)
Dodd (D-CT)
Dole (R-NC)
Ensign (R-NV)
Enzi (R-WY)
Graham (R-SC)
Grassley (R-IA)
Gregg (R-NH)
Hatch (R-UT)
Hutchison (R-TX)
Inhofe (R-OK)
Isakson (R-GA)
Kyl (R-AZ)
Lieberman (ID-CT)
Lugar (R-IN)
Martinez (R-FL)
McCain (R-AZ)
McConnell (R-KY)
Murkowski (R-AK)
Nelson (D-NE)
Pryor (D-AR)
Roberts (R-KS)
Sessions (R-AL)
Shelby (R-AL)
Specter (R-PA)
Stevens (R-AK)
Sununu (R-NH)
Thune (R-SD)
Vitter (R-LA)

My look at that glitterati. Why who is that I see? Craig from Idaho? Mr. ‘Foot Tapper’ himself? And I see some Presidential hopefuls in there (shame on you McCain and Brownback). Uhoh, there is going to be some ‘splaining to do there boys! And Lieberman is not so “independent” after all.

Oh and it’s funny how you don’t find this list linked in the common media. I had to dig it up myself. I hate this puppet show.

Bush shuts out any room for compromise on Iraq

Puppet Show must go on
