Like a bunch of two-year-olds

Cry babies.
WASHINGTON - President Bush on Monday sharply condemned the disclosure of a program to secretly monitor the financial transactions of suspected terrorists. "The disclosure of this program is disgraceful," he said.

No, Mr. President, you are disgraceful.

"For people to leak that program and for a newspaper to publish it does great harm to the United States of America," Bush said, jabbing his finger for emphasis. He said the disclosure of the program "makes it harder to win this war on terror."

Wrong again, Mr. President, you do great harm to America. [Creature jabs finger for emphasis] And you make it harder to win this war on terror.

"The American people expect this government to protect our constitutional liberties and at the same time make sure we understand what the terrorists are trying to do," Bush said.

Hey, wait a minute, I agree with you there, Mr. President. But how is making a run around Congress and the courts protecting our constitutional liberties? Your overreach is doing more damage to our liberties than any terrorist could have hoped for.

You all need to get off your high horses, this includes you Mr. Vice President, and admit you are more upset that the NYT disobeyed a direct order and exposed your illegal expansion of power, than you are over the disclosure of this program. You and your surrogates sound like a bunch of two-year-olds.

UPDATE: Right on cue Crook & Liars has video of this infantile GOP behavior. This clip is must see.

  • I have a question:

    How does briefing high-ranking members of Congress on these programs constitute making an end-run around Congress?

    You don't need to answer, moron.

  • You know, your question is legit, but why the moron part? Seriously, why was that necessary?
