Administration spin
    #848477 - 08/28/02 07:11 AM (15 years, 7 months ago)

Anyone else note how neatly the Bush administration has moved the corporate oil scandals out of the news cycle by chest thumping an invasion of Iraq? A cynical person might be tempted to think that they're doing this to dilute and diffuse the media's attention away from areas they don't particularly want explored in depth.

"Those that would sacrifice essential liberties for some temporary safety deserve neither."

No one likes to look bad. It should be expected that the subject be changed. Out of sight, out of mind right? There a a few things Bush doesn't want to talk about. Logging in forests, oil companies, business scandals, etc. If you were Bush would you want to talk about these things?

I thought not

A cynical person...? How about a realist?
