Burning Bush

Posted in Uncategorized by warycriticaleye on 27/06/2008

Aside from many unresolved cases of money laundering, disappearances and lengthy vacations, President Bush is now being questioned for his choices in hiring subordinates. Claude Allen was arrested for shoplifting early last year. Despite a six-digit annual salary from the White House as one of Bush’s aides for domestic policy, he was caught pocketing some items from Target in order to get cash refunds. His pathetic excuse? Post-Hurricane Katrina stress. Bush can’t control his writers, either. White House official speech-writer David Frum’s wife sent a bragging email to friends that Bush’s famous “Axis of Evil” speech was written by her husband, causing a minor scandal. In another case, Lurita Doan, Bush’s chair of the GSA (General Services Administration), was accused to have “requested” the help of agency staff for the Republican candidates to emerge victorious in next year’s elections and then denying everything when the story leaked.

In my personal opinion, this poor choice of staff is another blow to Bush’s dwindling popularity, and adds to the many questionable dastardly deeds of this President. When can we get answers?
