Lowering the Bar on Hypocrisy; Foreign Policy Edition

"My hope, of course, is that Russia is a country which understands there needs to be checks and balances and free and fair elections and vibrant press, that they understand Western values based upon human rights and human dignity ...values that will lead to a better country,"-- George W. Bush at his press conference, December 20, 2007

This is just too funny. The whole thrust of the Bush Administration has been to dismantle all checks and balances that would impede its actions. The McJackboot Administration has done everything it can to cloak its operations from scrutiny by Congress, the judiciary, the press and the public. They have classified and re-classified everything they can and they probably would have classified the Rand-McNally Road Atlas if they could have found a way to do it. And the very last thing they believe in is free and fair elections, the track record of the Republican Party in 2000, 2002, and 2004 have shown that.

If anything, George Bush and his henchmen are green with envy at everything that Vladimir Putin has been able to do in Russia to squelch political dissent and the Russian press.
