Karen Hughes, the former George W. Bush campaign director, swiped at President Obama, and told NBC that her former boss rescued the economy. Looks like maybe the motivational speaking tour needs a kick-start.
Then again, GWB could be busy putting his Katrina-style leadership to work helping the people of Haiti. He warned NBC viewers “shysters show up and take advantage of people’s good will and generosity” without a hint of irony. (Democracy Now! reported last week Bush himself was responsible for “destroying Haitian democracy” when he backed the coup to overthrow President Aristide in 2004.)
Meanwhile, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and half a dozen conservative commentators over on Fox News insisted the special election in Massachusetts will prove Americans oppose health reform even if the Democrat wins. In fact, only 190 out of the 500 people participating in last week’s Suffolk Poll said health care is the most important issue in Massachusetts. Apparently, voters didn’t get the memo.
