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?
