Brought to you by the good people of Crooks and Liars.
Does this endless presidency of loopholes and fine print extend even here?
If you believe in the seamless mutuality of government and big business — come out and say it!
There is a dictionary definition, one word that describes that toxic blend.
You're a fascist — get them to print you a t-shirt with "fascist" on it!
What else is this but fascism?
. . .
I am not talking about ethics here.
I am talking about blame.
If the President seems to be throwing the baby out with the bathwater, it means we can safely conclude... there is no baby.
Because if there were, sir, now that you have vetoed an extension of this eavesdropping, if some terrorist attack were to follow...
You would not merely be guilty of siding with the terrorists...
You would not merely be guilty of prioritizing the telecoms over the people…
You would not merely be guilty of stupidity...
You would not merely be guilty of treason, sir...
You would be personally, and eternally, responsible.
And if there is one thing we know about you, Mr. Bush, one thing that you have proved time and time again… it is that you are never responsible.
Read or watch the whole thing here. It's very powerful.
