Remember when the Bush White House refused to let the Obamas use Blair House so t hey could start their girls to school on time. The Bush people said BlaIR house was occupied.Now we kn ow the whole miserable story. President Bush wants to honour John Howard, the former Australian Ptrime Minister who joined Bush in the immoral and illegal wafr against Iraq. Bush will fly Howard and his wife to Washington, put them up in Blair house for one night (JAN. 12) and present them with the Freedom Medal.
There is a delicious piece of iron y here. Howards government was just defeated and Howard lost his own seat in the election. Why secufritywould Howard wanto receive the Freedom Medal when the Australian psent;preeople have just given him the boot? But I digresWhy would Bush force the Obamas and ther two little girls into a public hotel (where the security woulod be difficult ) f0r ONE night so that Bush could present medal to his war crony, Howard.Does this reveal how selfish and miserable the Bush crowd is? It does to me. What about you?
In the last days of his presidency George Bush is doing what he can to save his legacy. This means also doing what he can to honour those who followed him into the Iraq disaster. High am ong these is the former prime minister of Australia,Joh n Howard,
So Bush is arranging for Howard and his wife to fly to Washington, to stay in the presidentiaL guest house, Hfor one night (January 12), then B ush will invite him o ver to the White and ;present him woth the prestigious Medal of Freedom.
There is a delicious irony here. ,Howard,s unpopular goovernment has just australianbeen thrown out of office and Howard lost his own seat.Why in the world would Howard want the Medal of Freedom when the Australian people have just given hi m the boot? B ut I digress.Can you believe the reason the Obamas and their children were forced to go to a public hotel where security wlould be more difficult, was because Howard and his wife were goin g to staY In Blair House (which has a hundred rooms) for ONE night it is hard to believe the Bush people could be as small as this. Do you agree?
