If you read yesterday’s post you’ll know that one of the things that my father impressed upon me was that creeps were people who spoke disrespectfully of others. So I guess I have a bent in this area, but I’m OK with that. So this morning I read another informational article in the “law” section of the Herald titled “Mock trial of Bush discussed” I’m immediately tweaked because of the lack of respect exhibited by leaving out the title President or at least George W. Just Bush, as if it didn’t matter he is our US President. He is mentioned a few other times in the article.
discuss the impeachment process and her book, “US V. BUSH”
argues that President Bush and his colleagues have committed
a mock prosecution of Bush
Our US President is mentioned by name 4 times, with 3of them leaving off his title. So is it the Herald, the author, or the Whatcom Peace and Justice Center that is the culprit?
At least according to Amazon the author actually titled the book United States V. George W. Bush et al. Was the title shortened for space? If that’s the case it is sad that they would disrespect our president but spell out the sponsor Whatcom Peace and Justice Center and the location First Congregational Church. Both are very long words. And there is another article with the very long title of Trash becomes treasure at antiques fundraiser.
But what if the article was just supplied to the Herald by the WPJC? So what! They could reject it or say it needs to be rewritten. They don’t and don’t have to print everything that is given them.
So who is the creep? The Whatcom Peace and Justice Center is a given, but the Herald also deserves creepy credit for being the enabler and propagator of this disrespectful behavior towards our nation.
Have you wondered why some people who oppose President Bush don’t want to pursue impeachment? Perhaps it will come out that they actually agreed with him on Iraq? Here’s what some of the Democrats said several years before Valerie Plame became and issue and before Mr. Bush was elected.
“One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line.”
President Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998
“If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction program.”
President Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998.
“Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face.”
Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998.
“He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983.”
Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18,1998.
“[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq’s refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs.”
Letter to President Clinton, signed by Sens. Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry, and others Oct. 9, 1998
“Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process.”
Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998.
This post is unfinished but I felt it had enough information to have some worth and I am running short on time.
A few days ago I wrote about Senate Joint Memorial 8016, a resolution to investigate impeaching President Bush that was backed locally by Senator Spanel. At the end of my post I asked the question of who really wrote the resolution, Fellowship of Reconciliation’s or Senator Eric Oemig? Here is what I came up, with arranged chronologically. They are only excerpts so you can click the links if you want everything.

Today’s post is made from 100% recycled material. This is one of the many letters I wrote to the Bellingham City Council last fall regarding the Troops Home Resolution. With a resurgence of the well used but never explained Bush lied talk accompanying all the impeachment business I felt like a recycling some of my writings to counter the left’s recycled rhetoric.
9/14/06 email to Bellingham City Council
No matter how many resolutions and sign waving protest there are, the President must get up every morning and do the job for which he was hired. And similarly, no matter how many people are in the room supporting this proposal, the council still has an obligation to do the job for which they were hired.
