Andrew Card Now Afraid Of One Party Rule
The P.T. Barnum of the Bush Grindhouse back in the headlines ... One of the seminal members of the WHIG cronies, who set the standard for any-and-all future administrations, when they want to initiate a campaign of lies and falsehoods, offering;
Not long after, White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card was asked why the administration waited until after Labor Day to try to sell the American people on military action against Iraq. Card replied, `From a marketing point of view, you don't introduce new products in August.'It's April, so what's up with this?
From C&L's Nicole Bell;
At the America Small Business Summit 2008, former Bush White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card laments what the potential abuses Democrats might commit if they hold the majority in both houses of Congress and the White House. Funny how that didn’t seem to be an issue when the Republicans were in charge.
"But I worry, if we have a president that gets elected with significant momentum and his or her party is sharing the possibility of running Congress with overwhelming majorities that there would be a rush to do stupid things in the first hundred days. And the first hundred days could produce a lot of mistakes that would take years and years to undo. So that’s something I think we should be cautious about or thinking about. Not just who the next president is, but what will our government look like when they take the direction that the president has to offer. I actually kind of like having a deliberative process in the House and the Senate that causes people to work really hard to get legislation passed to change some of the things happening in our economy. It’s good and it’s bad. It’s frustrating when it doesn’t happen on the good side fast enough, but sometimes, it’s a blessing when bad things don’t happen because we woke up to recognize the consequence of the action."
Hypocrisy, thy name is Republican.
Whatever it is, whatever he is offering, whatever he is selling, speak in their language, from one of their icons ...
Just Say No!
