Jeb Bush: "I Have No Future"

@ 11:58 PM (101 months, 10 days ago)

This definitely gets my vote as THE headline of the day, lol! 

'I have no future' -- Jeb Bush tells reporters

The man who helped his brother steal the presidency in 2000 says he has no future!  Jeb Bush, who seemed to think he knew better than Terri Schiavo's husband what was best for her, says he doesn't plan to return to public office after finishing his stint as Governor of Florida.

And the nation thanks you, Jebbie, for saving us from one more miserable failure of a Bush presidency.


Bush Flip-Flops On Whether We're Winning In Iraq

@ 09:38 PM (101 months, 10 days ago)

You might recall that at the 2004 Republican Convention, some delegates held up pictures of flip-flops (a swipe at Bush's rival, Senator John Kerry, who the GOP portrayed as a flip-flopper).

Well, seems like dear ol' Bushie is doing some flip-flopping of his own.

Just last month, when asked whether the United States was winning the war in Iraq, Bush said "Absolutely, we're winning."

Now it seems like Bush can't make up his mind whether we are winning or losing. In an interview with the Washington Post this week, Bush said "We're not winning.  We're not losing."

Not winning?  Not losing?  Is there supposed to be something in between?

Well, at least we finally got Bush to admit we're not winning in Iraq.  So I guess he's only half delusional now!  For the Flip-Flopper-in-Chief, that's considered progress!

U.S. not winning war in Iraq, Bush says
