Bush's Recent Actions Begin to make Sense

Previous news about President Bush has made me wonder if his drug habit had returned. Legal status for illegal immigrants? New trips to the moon and Mars? A space station on the moon? Where did this all come from?

Now, I think I know.

Today, there's a new report at cnn.com, revealing that Paul O'Neill, former Bush aide (Treasury secretary), has some tasty bits to say about the Bush Administration.

On Friday, a cnn.com article had O'Neill describing Bush as
"like a blind man in a roomful of deaf people."

Saturday's claim by Mr. O'Neill is that Bush II had plans to oust Saddam "within days" after Bush II assumed office.

http://www.cnn.com/2004/ALLPOLITICS/01/10/oneill.bu
sh/index.html

From the article:

Suskind said O'Neill and other White House insiders gave him documents showing that in early 2001 the administration was already considering the use of force to oust Saddam, as well as planning for the aftermath.

"There are memos," Suskind told the network. "One of them marked 'secret' says 'Plan for Post-Saddam Iraq.'"

Suskind cited a Pentagon document titled "Foreign Suitors For Iraqi Oilfield Contracts," which, he said, outlines areas of oil exploration. "It talks about contractors around the world from ... 30, 40 countries and which ones have what intentions on oil in Iraq."

In the book, O'Neill is quoted as saying he was surprised that no one in a National Security Council meeting asked why Iraq should be invaded.

"It was all about finding a way to do it. That was the tone of it. The president saying 'Go find me a way to do this,'" O'Neill said.

Couple this with the liberal propaganda that "Bush lied to us," and the powers that be in the Bush camp have adequately predicted that Bush will have a tough road ahead of him in 2004. They saw this coming.

The claims by Mr. O'Neill aren't attack proof, of course. Mr. O'Neill, after all, was forced to resign just over a year ago because he was so critical of Bush's economic decisions.

Still, the DNC can run with this... and with help from Moveon.org (with their bushin30seconds.com campaign), the DNC just might give George a run for his money this coming election.
