Tony Snow Ends Week With Another Magic Word After Being Asked If White House Is Out Of Touch

He called a reporter a "defeatist"
Does that sound desperate? And how!
Perhaps next week his response
Will be, "Defeatist, don't fail me now!"

BUZZFLASH INTERVIEW

My belief is that the person in the street, the person who tunes in to TV, needs to be more critical, needs to ask questions, needs to demand answers, and should be willing to shut off Chris Matthews unless he starts doing his job for the public and not for General Electric.

Joe Wilson stood up to Saddam Hussein
And later the policies of the Bush administration
Valerie Plame looked for WMDs for the CIA
Before her Cheney-engineered termination.

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT

Rep. Jim McDermott (D-WA)
Remarks
House of Representatives
Iraq
Wednesday, July 11, 2007

Mr. Speaker:

The President intends to stay the course in Iraq. His latest quote is we might be able to bring soldiers home "in a while" and the White House is circulating a memo claiming they see progress.

MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,

What we will hear again and again from Bush and his cohorts in crime are constant postponements regarding our troops coming home, until Bush thinks he's safe to stay in office, until his occupation of the White House is over in 2008. If that happens this country's government is as weak and criminal as this treasonous Bush GOP regime ... aiding and abetting, it's called.

Cindy Sheehan: Strange Bedfellows

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Cindy Sheehan

Since I announced my challenge to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi a few days ago, I have been very thrilled that issues such as impeachment and the inherent corruption of the "two" party system have been brought to the forefront of public discourse. Every interview I have done has given me the opportunity to throw the impeachment issue out there. The democratic blogosphere has predictably lined up against me and must be very frightened because they are repeating the scandalous lies of the right. Wow, the right and left are finding common ground over slandering me. I must be a uniter.
