Fearful Symmetries

Witness a machine turn coffee into pointless ramblings...

Clear As Mud

Here's what Dubya said last week in his weekly radio address:

"Democrats have a chance to prove they are for open and transparent government by working to complete each spending bill independently and on time," Bush said. "I urge Democrats in Congress to step forward now and pass these bills one at a time. "

And then a couple days later when Congress wants to interview his staff, transparency & openness are jettisoned:

President Bush invoked executive privilege Monday to deny requests by Congress for testimony from two former aides about the firings of federal prosecutors.

The White House, however, did offer again to make former counsel Harriet Miers and one-time political director Sara Taylor available for private, off-the-record interviews.

I take that back. Bush has had 7 years to prove he's for transparency and openness in government and he's only proven his administration to be a bunch of Know Nothings. Dubya's hypocrisy makes baby Jesus cry.
