    Lame Duck BushCo Administration - lessons learned

    Birthday cake for Laura as Bush party devastated

    ---- portions snipped ----

    Mr Bush — who was unpopular with most Americans for most of his second term — lay low during the presidential race out of deference to Republican nominee John McCain and other Republican candidates, who have sought to distance themselves from the Administration.

    Rather than voting at the fire station in Crawford, Texas, as he has for the past three elections, Mr Bush this year sent in a postal vote for Senator McCain.

    Lame Duck Summit
    Published: November 3, 2008

    President Bush will be the lamest of ducks by Nov. 15, when leaders of 20 nations meet in Washington to discuss the global financial crisis. With only two months left in office, he will not be around to implement any policy changes he proposes or agrees to.

    Mr. Bush’s bigger problem is his utter lack of credibility when it comes to the central question of how to regulate national and global financial markets to ensure that this disaster never happens again. Eight years and a huge financial crash later, and Mr. Bush is still extolling the corrective powers of unrestrained markets.

    Re: Lame Duck BushCo Administration - lessons learned


    Forget the duck...

    Bush is more like a lame dick!

    speaking of deregulation!! Mega-phone companies - AGAIN - coming your way

    the story is:

    Centurytel bought Embarq for X-billions of dollars and in exchange for assuming Embarq's X-billions of debt, Embarq now owns something like 65% of Centurytel's stock - so they're a combined company now.


    what the hell is THAT all about, you ask?!

    The FCC is about to 'decide' - today or tomorrow - that the BIG phone companies (ATT, etc.) will be allowed to buy up and run out the smaller phone companies like Centurytel and Embarq.

    Ummmm .... what the hell happened to stopping such MONOPOLIES?!!

    BuschCO's crap sets me off!!!!!!

    just thought y'all might wanna know ...


    CenturyTel buys Embarq in $5.8B deal
    The combined company will have about 8 million lines spanning 33 states, mainly in rural areas.
