I don’t know which hypocrisy irks me most this last week, there are too many to choose from. First we have the Pope decreeing that Catholicism is the only true religion and all others are pretenders. Even saying something like that goes against the teachings of Jesus. Then we have Sen. Vitter confessing to consorting with prostitutes. He was elected largely because of his rhetoric bashing gays and supporting the marriage amendment. This is the very definition of hypocrisy. Finally we Bush claiming ‘executive privilege’ for not supplying Congress with documentation. I’m not talking about the scandals involving the fired prosecutors, the illegal wire tapping of our phones and e-mails or even his exposing a CIA agent. He is refusing to turn over documents concerning the ‘friendly fire’ killing of Pat Tillman. A true patriot and hero who was killed in Afghanistan. He is doing this to avoid political embarrassment and to cover up the propaganda machine Bush employed for political gain. What a coward.
The Roman Empire didn’t fall in a day nor did it fall because of bad leadership. It only fell after the people failed to hold their leaders accountable and accepted the fact that they were mere peons and felt they didn’t have the power over an ever increasing corrupt government. One doesn’t need to look too far back in the Bush family to find corruption, his grandfather Prescott, was a major contributor to the Nazis during the entire war, his fathers close ties to the Suadis and Bush himself in bed with big oil.Ask yourself this question, What possible reason is there for Bush to with hold the details of Pat Tillmans death? Unless you’re trying to cover something up, there is no good reason. It’s just standard operating procedure if you’re morally bankrupt
