Fineman's an Idiot

Nuff said. Can't make it any more simplier than that. Newsweak's Howard Fineman is a complete and utter idiot.

How he takes Enron's Ken Lay - a crook, now convicted and heading to prison and somehow turns that into a "failed Bush presidency" shows just clueless he and the rest of the hit and run media is.

So Howie, what's the beef?

"WASHINGTON - If you want a date to mark the beginning of the end of the Bush Era in American life, you may as well make it this one: May 25, 2006. The Enron jury in Houston didn’t just put the wood to Ken Lay and Jeff Skilling. The jurors took a chain saw to the moral claims of the Texas-based corporate culture that had helped fuel the rise to power of President George W. Bush."

Do tell Howie, how so?

"First, caveats. There’s no evidence that the president or anyone in his entourage knew about or benefited financially from the house of cards that Lay and Skilling built — and that a federal jury now has found to have been an edifice of fraud."

Yeah, so? So there is no connection between Bush and Ken's conviction - cased close.

So what's YOUR point?

"The Bush Crowd was old school in the energy bidness (Cute Howie, it's like the 'News Bidness'..heh,heh, I get it), and viewed Lay & Co., as hustling parvenus who had no real interest in finding and pumping oil — what real men in Texas do."

Oh, so Bush is an oil man....and that means?

"Most of what Enron concocted was assembled in the go-go Clinton years. Bush’s idea of an oil man was his old Bible Study buddy, the upright, clean-as-a-whistle Don Evans. As the Enron scam was falling apart, Lay frantically sought help from Evans — by then the Commerce Secretary -- among others (including Democrats such as former Clinton Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin). He got nowhere, and had the chutzpah to be bitter about it.

Ultimately, Bush’s Justice Department pressed the case against Enron — and won.

Still, when the history books are written, the debit side of the Bush Era ledger will include a line labeled “Kenny Boy.” That’s the nickname Bush gave the guy he later claimed he barely knew."


So all the illegal stuff took place under el savior's watch, you want to lay in on Bush (who prosecuted Lay), and somehow this all tranlates into a bad legacy for Bush

......No Howie, only in your indiotic thinking.

Howard is indicative of the stuffed-shirt, overpaid, and exgerated elitist media in this country. Abolutely nothing in his hit piece - and that is exactly what it is, a hit piece - tells us anything except that Howard Fineman is a hack, and not even a good one at that.

Check please!

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!











Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
