Bush must go —

A group of 26 former senior diplomats and military officials, several appointed to key positions by Republican Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, plans to issue a joint statement this week arguing that President George W. Bush has damaged America’s national security and should be defeated in November.”

And Ashcroft must go —

Paul Krugman: “No question: John Ashcroft is the worst attorney general in History.” (OK, Ashcroft has such a desperate need to be on television that he’ll even make up terror threats to get there. It’s becoming something of a joke. But let us not forget that Ashcroft-the-senate-candidate was soundly beaten by a dead man, and that can really mess a person up.)

And Cheney must go —

Rep. Henry Waxman is on Cheney’s case in the Halliburton contract matter:

In a letter faxed Sunday to Mr. Cheney and given to reporters, Representative Henry A. Waxman, the minority leader of the panel, asked him for all records of his office’s communications on the oil contracts and for records of Deputies Committee meetings where the Halliburton deals had been discussed.

“These new disclosures appear to contradict your assertions that you were not informed about the Halliburton contracts,” Mr. Waxman, Democrat of California, wrote. “They also seem to contradict the administration’s repeated assertions that political appointees were not involved in the award of the contracts to Halliburton.”

(By the way, Cheney is still asserting that Hussein had ties to Al Qaeda…)

Three strikes —

Body and Soul gets my feelings exactly on that unbelievable bill permitting clergy to endorse political candidates. Here’s my earlier post on it.

  1. Apropos of Henry Waxman, you might want to post something about him uncovering the CIA’s little faux pas about the number of terrorist incidents. Colin Powell had to do a mea culpa about them on Sunday morning. The number had been grossly underestimated, but NOT (!) for political reasons. Unfortunately, as usual, not a lot of press about this.

  2. See my entry here –http://leftatthealtar.blogspot.com/2004/06/feeling-safer-yet-remember-much.html. Right, though – I neglected to mention that it’s Waxman’s good work. He is doing the best (only?) watchdogging of this administration of anybody on the hill!
