Bush has told too many lies

George Bush knew terrorists planned attacks one month before September and made no security changes in U.S. airports, but hid in Texas from the Eastern Seaboard he knew faced attack. How could he visit ground zero saying he’d find the culprits “dead or alive!” when he knew a month before?

Those buildings crumbled, innocent people died, and for nine months Bush lied, waving the flag, telling Tom Brokaw the Sept. 11 attacks were “sneak attacks.”

During the attacks, Bush claimed terrorists threatened Air Force One, forcing the plane to avoid Washington, but that was a lie, too.

Now Republicans raise campaign money off the Sept. 11 dead, selling photos of Bush ranting on a phone with captions proclaiming his “courage under fire?”

After 17 months as president, Bush lied about Sept. 11, lied about Enron, hides Reagan’s and his father’s presidential papers, hides Cheney’s energy papers, and has plunged the Treasury back into deficits, fueling the recession.

Bush’s communication director, Karen Hughes, resigned last month, wanting more family time. Nonsense. She saw this tidal wave coming and abandoned a sinking ship. Research the Arbusto Oil & Energy Company on the Internet. Bush and the bin Ladens go way back.

“There’s nothing covered up that won’t be revealed, nor hidden that won’t be made known.” – Luke 12:2
