He's not sorry for wasting dozens of lives in Iraq, yet Bush regrets getting caught in op-ed parlor trick on American people

After being discovered paying ANOTHER op-ed commentator to hawk his schemes, President Bush has ordered his staff to no longer hire columnists.

But if he's supposed to be so moral and ethical, why did he start doing it to begin with?

Given how dishonest a practice this is, what kind of public official even conceives of such a thing?

Why would the President of the United States do this?

Why would Bush spend our money to try to trick us like this?

With each passing day I'm becoming all the more glad that Bush won(?) the election. It would have been better for his political career to have died quick and mercifully. Now he begins to suffer death by a thousand cuts. Twenty years from now, he will be regarded as one of the worst Presidents in American history... even surpassing Bill Clinton. I'm a patient man: I can wait to gloat at the Bush-bots for awhile, when there's nothing they can do about it by that point.

I just wish that he could prove his incompetence in a better way than having so many American soldiers dying without purpose in a country whose people are now far worse off now than when we "liberated" it from an already evil dictator. The man who's sent well over a thousand to die meaningless deaths yet has never so much as acknowledged their "sacrifices" by attending a soldier's funeral is now threatening more of this nonsense:

"We value life and we weep and mourn when soldiers lose their life," the president said. "But it is the long-term objective that is vital, and that is to spread freedom."
At the rate his madness is accelerating, I'm tempted to pray for God to send a CvS (people in the know will understand wink-wink).

Gotta wonder something: if Bush is not paying any more commentators after these two were discovered, how many more working in television or print media have whored themselves out that we don't know about yet?

Standard operating procedure (SOP) for the Federal Govt. This sort of thing has been going on for decades. So stop acting as if Bush had invented it. And there's nothing dishonest about it. It's all legal. Though it is a waste of taxpayer dollars.

And the second colimnist was not paid to "trick" anyone via her columns. She was paid to do research for the standard government informational brochures.

Doesn't matter if Bush invented it or not (which YOU read in this on your own, by the way: I never suggested it). It's still wrong. AND a waste of our money.

I thought these were supposed to be "the grown-ups" when they first came to the White House 4 years ago. This is something that high school kids might do.
