The Latest Bushism
Slip of the Tongue: We Don't Care About Your Security

This is not just the latest Bushism, but the most revealing of them all. I remember reading a study on Bush-speak written by Mark Crispin Miller a few years back that explained this phenomenon. Apparently, those verbal gaffes and misstatements that Bush makes on a daily basis are actually very revealing, telling you about his state of mind and what he really, really means.

Today, Bush said this on TV about the UAE port deal:

"This deal wouldn't go forward if we were concerned about the security for the United States of America."

G. W. Bush, source here: http://www.talkingpointsmemo.com/archives/007735.php

I'm sure he knew what he was trying to say. But the literal meaning of that sentence is: "If we really cared about the security for the United States of America, this deal wouldn't go forward."

His minders must be really, really proud of him.

Every Conservative loud-mouth should APOLOGIZE TO MICHAEL MOORE !!!

Yes. Every single one of them.
And they should do it repeatedly and profusely. To him and his family.

I still remember when Fahrenheit 9/11 came out, and they howled, screamed and cried "treason." They branded any efforts from Moore to unmask the Bush family as completely SOLD OUT to SAUDI PETRODOLLARS as an act of treason itself.

Oh, I remember it well: How could Michael Moore even "dare" to suggest that Poppy Bush and Junior Bush could be so tied to big middle-eastern oil money? How could he?

Well, never mind Michael Moore offered the same evidence that many other authors have used to scream out loud about this outrage. Evidence, I may add, that is out there in the open, for all to see.

Still, they called him a "traitor," a "communist," "in league with the terrorists," and much, much worst.

Now, it turns out, that when Bush has to choose between the interests of his wealthy Arab partners, and the security of the United States of America, country he actually is supposed to represent because the American people voted him to do so, Bush once again decides to protect the interest of his big-moneyed friends. In case you are not aware, here's the big news: BUSH SAYS HE WOULD VETO LEGISLATION TO STOP DUBAI PORT DEAL

Not only he will defend the giveaway to Dubai, he would do it FEROCIOUSLY, even using the right to VETO, which he has never used before for any other issue.

As Michael Moore said in Fahrenheit 9/11:

Okay, let's say one group of people, like the American people pay you $400,000 a year to be president of the United States.

But then another group of people (Poppy's Saudi friends) invest in you, your friends and their related businesses, $ 1.4 billion over a number of years.

Who are you gonna like? Who's your daddy?


Michael Moore was right. He was prophetically right, and this means bad news for the nation as Bush sells away the keys of our ports to a company OWNED by the government of UAE. The UAE is a nation suspected of involvement in 9/11, supporter of the Taliban, a nation that still recognizes the Taliban as the "legitimate" government of Afghanistan... and a nation suspected of financing terrorism worldwide. Now the government of that nation will own the keys to 6 of our major ports, and Bush will fight tooth and nail to defend that deal.

We are waiting for your apologies, wingnuts and conservatarians of all shades and stripes, as you painfully awake to the same reality that we, on this side of the polical divide, have known for 6 years now. Michael Moore, an author and filmmaker, was just exposing what was out there, and anyone familiar with the Bush family knew already. He deserves more credit, especially after the horrible attacks and insults he received when he released his movie.

Nothing short of an apology will do.

We are waiting.
