Seems there’s just so much alienation your friends will take before they lash out at you in public. Make no mistake: Bush values loyalty above everything else. That Hoekstra was willing to publicly cross the president says A LOT.

Tax Dollars to Fund Study on Restricting Public Data

According to USA Today: “The federal government will pay a Texas law school $1 million to do research aimed at rolling back the amount of sensitive data available to the press and public through freedom-of-information requests.”
Seriously, this s*#t just got ridiculous; the Bush administration is already the most secrecy-crazed in the 20th century. Now it needs more layers of secrecy?

    Bush on Ken Lay
    From ThinkProgress

    Bush Rewrites History on Lay

    President Bush told Larry King that deceased Enron founder Ken Lay was “a good guy.” That’s just patently false. A jury confirmed as much. And as for Lay’s crimes, Bush said he was “disappointed.”

  • Memo to Bush: “Disappointed” is dropping an ice cream cone in the mud. Leaving thousands of employees with worthless pension plans and profiting wildly by knocking California off the power grid ... that’s a bit more than “disappointing.”
