In typical White House fashion, when the news is not good – distract and divert.
In an attempt to distract and divert recent news coverage of criminal charges that go straight to the heart of national security and the integrity of the president, the White House just named a radical judge as a Supreme Court nominee.
This morning, the White House named Judge Alito as Supreme Court nominee to replace Sandra Day O’Conner. Judge Alito was the lone dissenting judge to vote that a woman must get the man’s consent before terminating a pregnancy. Fortunately, the other judges on the court disagreed. However, I’m sure more of his personal-agenda rulings will be uncovered in the days ahead.
And this is exactly what the White House wants. By nominating Alito, this, of course, will create a fight that will be sure to turn news coverage away from the possible criminal actions of lies and deceit to conceal the truth about their reasons for going to war.
After all, when President Bush took the White House, he indicated that he wanted to “restore honor and integrity” to the White House.
Unfortunately, lying to the American people about connections between Iraq and 9/11 while thousands of young soldiers – fathers, mothers, brother, and sisters – die in Iraq, is neither honorable nor truthful.
