Who Do You Trust?

Another example of contempt for the right by this Administration. If only President Bush would deal in such a Machiavellian fashion with his liberal enemies!

Thanks to The Federalist.

Bruce Bartlett, a noted economist, Treasury Department official under Bush(41) and senior fellow at the National Center for Policy Analysis, was fired from the think tank this week after the Bush administration got an advance copy of his forthcoming book, Impostor: How George W. Bush Bankrupted America and Betrayed the Reagan Legacy. It seems the muting of political speech under so-called "campaign finance reform" was not an anomaly. Consequently, Bartlett's publisher has increased first-run production by 40 percent and moved up the book's release date to February. If this is how the administration plans to temper criticism of its spending problems, Karl Rove isn't the genius we've always taken him to be.

Absolutely outrageous -- can airbrushing photographs and censoring history books be far behind? King George is taking this vendetta thing too far. Interestingly, he only purges his own party, never the democrats. The Clintons seem like his favorite people in the world, and he even seems to like Harry Reid and Ted Kennedy in spite of how they treat him. I thought these Think Tanks were independent. I hope Bartlett's book sells millions of copies and makes him a millionaire so he can spit in their faces. Obviously the Bush people now feel that they own the Republican party, lock, stock and barrel, and have set about purging the ranks from within. Only Bush sycophants and toadies need apply. I can't tell you how increasingly sickened I am by everything this administration does. And to think I once thought electing him was the only way to save the free world.
