andee's world: Partisan Politics

andee's world

Hello and welcome to my blog. This space will be devoted to opinions, observations, lists, articles and whatever else I feel like posting. Subjects will include music, human nature, politics, life in NYC, etc. If I paste someone else's writing up here, it is because the author said something way better than I ever could. By the way, I don't claim to be a particularly smart guy; I'm just a musician with some opinions. If you disagree with me, that's cool -- but then, you're probably wrong.

Partisan Politics

I know I've talked about this before, but I have to say it again -- Republicans are letting Bush off the hook for everything. There are so many serious, serious questions that need to be answered about 9/11 -- why did it happen on Bush's watch? Why did he ignore all of the warnings and reoprts that were put in front of his face in the precious months before the attack? Why did he sit in that classroom for seven minutes like a retard while thousands of Americans were incinerating in the Twin Towers? Why did he personally fly those dozen-plus Saudis out of this country just days after the attacks, when all other US planes were grounded and the FBI was trying to conduct an investigation?

We took the worst hit in US history on 9/11, and these are some big fucking question marks hanging out there. And we should all want real answers.

But the Republicans don't want to hear about it. To raise a question is tantamount to being "anti-American." They formulate elaborate excuses for the President. Why? They're Americans, aren't they? Aren't they scared and concerned for this country? Or is their partisan allegience so blind that they would rather stick their heads in the sand than face these questions?

Oh, and by the way -- if it were Bill Clinton at the center of all of this? The Republicans would be all over him like rabid dogs. All over him.
