‘Shorthanded’ Spin

March 22, 2008

As 2008 A.D. un-gaily moves forward, Decider George is playing out his game in high drama. Although cavorting all over the planet the last few months, he and his cohort, Dufus Dick Cheney, have sealed themselves into a self-created, highly-hardened ‘bunker mentality’ — reminds one of an old Phillip K. Dick novel (we cannot remember the title) in which just about all these contract workers on this planet used LSD as a legal relaxing tool to deal with intense boredom and had a bizarre side effect: Users began to grow armor plating.
So it is with Decider George and Dufus Dick. After eight years of highly-habitual use of mind-altering utterances (maybe more like decades) they are now encased in biological armor plating, so instead of hunkering down bitterly in the White House like that coward, nutcase Nixon, Decider George and Dufus Dick can go public, attack, sally forth with a ‘can-do’ attitude. 

Just this past week, the two robotic-freaks spun the old spin through their own hardened orifices in an attempt to blow smoke up the anus of an asshole.
First Decider George tried to tongue-wrestle history.

WASHINGTON — President Bush contended that Iran has “declared they want a nuclear weapon to destroy people” and that the Islamic Republic could be hiding a secret program.
Iran, however, has never publicly proclaimed a desire for nuclear weapons and has repeatedly insisted that the uranium enrichment program it’s operating in defiance of U.N. Security Council resolutions is for civilian power plants, not warheads.
“The problem is the (Iranian) government cannot be trusted to enrich uranium because one, they’ve hidden programs in the past and they may be hiding one now. Who knows?” said Bush.
“Secondly, they’ve declared they want to have a nuclear weapon to destroy people, some in the Middle East. And that is unacceptable to the United States and it’s unacceptable to the world.”
Iran has repeatedly denied seeking nuclear warheads, and its supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, issued a religious edict in 2005 forbidding the production, stockpiling and use of such weapons.

Further down in the same story:

Asked about the president’s comment, Gordon Johndroe, a White House spokesman, said Bush had “shorthanded” Iran’s desire “to wipe Israel off the map,” its refusal to heed U.N. Security Council demands to suspend its enrichment work and Iran’s continued development of ballistic missiles.
Asked if Iran could exploit Bush’s inaccurate comment for political purposes, Johndroe replied: “I’m not concerned about that. If they want to spin it a certain way, they can do it any way they want. They have still called for Israel to be wiped off the map and are in violation of three U.N. Security Council resolutions.”
Speaking in October 2005 at a “World Without Zionism” conference, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was quoted by state-run Iranian media as saying that “Israel must be wiped off the map.”
Some experts, however, disputed the translation, saying that Ahmadinejad’s comment couldn’t be interpreted as a threat to use force against Israel.

So Decider George just “shorthanded” a list of grievances into one, tidy easy-to-swallow phrase with Iran wanting a nuclear weapon to: “…destroy people, some in the Middle East.” Is that what happened?

The crux of what happened is Decider George has “shorthanded” the US peoples.

At a White House press briefing today, Press Secretary Dana Perino effectively tells veteran correspondent Helen Thomas that the American people’s say in the Iraq occupation ended after the 2004 election.
“The American people are being asked to die and pay for this,” probes Thomas. “And you’re saying they have no say in this war?”
“No,” Perino responds, “I didn’t say that, Helen. But, Helen, this president was elected–”
Thomas interrupts: “But it amounts to it. You’re saying we have no input at all.”
“You had input,” Perino says. “The American people have input every four years and that’s the way our system is set up.”

And Dufus Dick laying on the small-arms fire, protected by his own body armor, conceded early last week how the American public feels doesn’t really matter. He told ABC’s Good Morning America, he doesn’t pay any attention to polls. When told by the interviewer a recent poll showed a majority of US peoples think the Iraqi war was a mistake, Dufus Dick responded, “So?” (See our Romancing The Gall, 3/19/08)

When Americans are asked whether they think that “elections are the only time when the views of the people should have influence, or that also between elections leaders should consider the views of the people as they make decisions,” an extraordinary 94 percent say that government leaders should pay attention to the views of the public between elections.
These findings are part of a larger international poll conducted by WorldPublicOpinion.org, an international research project managed by the Program on International Policy Attitudes at the University of Maryland

Decider George has shorthanded the US to create a disaster.
