Bush Bails on War Funding

President Bush’s new budget will not fully fund the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Instead, the White House plans to ask for “bridge” funds—enough to pay for the wars until the next president takes over. Though no official figure has been given, congressional estimates put the amount at less than half of what we spend on the wars in a year.

Ahmadinejad Denounces Bush’s ‘Message of Confrontation’

During his just-completed tour of the Middle East, President Bush made no secret of his belief that Iran poses the biggest threat to the security of the region and beyond, but Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has his own ideas about Bush’s statements and Mideast allegiances, which he was equally willing to air on the heels of Bush’s visit.

Bush Plans Economic Intervention

What to do about the slumping U.S. economy? President Bush may disagree with congressional Democrats on dozens of issues, but he seems to agree with their call for some kind of temporary stimulus measure to be implemented as soon as possible.

Robert Scheer: Bush’s Nutty Nuclear Braggadocio

“A once swaggering president, who so convincingly wielded a bullhorn and modeled a flight suit, now has assumed the pretzel pose of a supplicant attempting to cajole our old enemy in Tehran into dropping its nuclear ambitions while simultaneously initiating talks with Iran aimed at bailing us out in Iraq.”
