That didn't take long. Thanks to Paul Krugman; it's high time someone disagreed with Bush's wrongheaded fiscal ideas. Bush is going back to fuzzy math to justify another tax cut.

Thankfully, the doors for dissent are finally openning. I've been waiting for the universe to realign so that it's not un-American to disagree. That time has arrived. Now maybe the main line press will start asking if Bush and probably Cheney don't have massive conflicts of interest due to their business ties to oil and other Middle Eastern industries. This would include, of course, the Bush family ties to the Bin Laden family... (Read about it in the Houston Chronicle Archives. It's worth the $5. Just search 1992 and cross reference bush and bin laden.)

It is fairly well know that there were ties to the Bin Laden family. The Bin Laden family, 2nd richest gang in Saudi Arabia, after the King's family, seems to be legitimate business people. In fact we had as a nation close ties to Bin Laden himself. That is perhaps more damning. Bin Laden family has a son at Harvard. Do we get him tossed out of the country?

Post: works for me. I think it's getting to be pretty clear that we need to clean up our national act in the region regardless. Propping up despots like Fahd in exchange for our profiteering is just working against us. Once the military campaign is over, we need to already be at work to prevent it happening again. The point is that we won't fix anything since even worse than endangering some corporations, the President's our fortunes would turn with abandoning the Saudis. Hence, no substantive change in policy will ever happen.
