Bush is afraid. Very afraid
Kos, as always, gets it right
This is sadly typical from our chickenshit commander-in-chief:
George Bush was last night branded chicken for scrapping his speech to Parliament because he feared being heckled by anti-war MPs.
But senior White House adviser Dr Harlan Ullman said: “They would have loved to do it because it would have been a great photo-opportunity.
“But they were fearful it would to turn into a spectacle with Labour backbenchers walking out.”
Even The Guardian must be feeling the pressure from Blair and Bush, hence their report that the “majority backs Bush”. Well uh, no. If you actually read the article, it says 62% of voters believe “the US is ‘generally speaking a force for good, not evil, in the world’ — which is not at all the same as saying they back Bush.
As for the war, 47%, 41% oppose, again, scarely a vote of confidence in Bush or Blair.
