Riddle Me This

How does George W. Bush's Ownership Society square with the high court's decision to grant local goverments the right to seize American citizens's homes?

Les wonders too:
Q Suppose that McLennan County, Texas, decides that a center for slot machines would bring in much more revenue than the Bush ranch. Would the President try to fight the eminent domain, as now legalized by five members of the Supreme Court, by means of the Aderholt-Shelby bill, or how?

MR. McCLELLAN: You know, I don't know of any attempt by McLennan County to do such a thing, first of all. And, second of all, if they did, it's a matter for McLennan County to deal with. But I know of no such effort.

Q He would fight it, wouldn't he?

MR. McCLELLAN: Les, I think the President has made his views clear when it comes to private property rights. In terms of Supreme Court decisions, we obviously have to respect the decisions of the Supreme Court.

Q Does the President feel as strongly about that lady in New London, Connecticut, who will be forced out of her home where she was born and has lived for 87 years, does he feel as strong as Justice O'Connor feels, and does he believe this decision will help with his nomination of new justices?

MR. McCLELLAN: Les, we just haven't talked about it, but the President is always concerned about the American people and their well being.

Q He really is concerned about this lady, isn't he?

MR. McCLELLAN: Go ahead.

Yeah, Bush is concerned about Americans. So long as they keep their mouths shut and die for his lies, all's well. Keep your eyes open for the long knives should his approval rating drop to 40% ... oh, right, it is at 40%, with 60% of ALL Americans disapproving of him and his policies.

No wonder Karl Rove is unhinged.

I'll say this much: I'm glad to see somebody in the press giving Scot so much heat.

Hamana hamana!
