Bush the Uniter

Republican House Speaker Hastert, reflecting the improved “tone” in Washington after two years of Bush the Uniter, who promised to change the tone in Washington, “When partisanship becomes so rigid it makes deal making impossible, the result is a breakdown in the system, and that breakdown is widely seen as simple incompetence” said the statement by Hastert’s office.

More changed tone from the Uniting Republicans, same article, “House Majority Leader Dick Armey, R-Texas, asked as the House adjourned this week why al-Qaida can organize itself after a U.S.-led assault “and the Senate cannot organize itself.” His answer: “Al-Qaida doesn’t have a Senator Daschle who has another focus.”

Ads with bin Laden’s face morphing into Democratic candidates. Timing the Iraq campaign for the election. Ready-to-go with ads with Democratic walking with Saddam Hussein. Gotta hand it to those Republicans, they know how to win elections, saying they’ll “change the tone” and saying they are “uniters not dividers.” WATCH WHAT THEY DO, NOT WHAT THEY SAY.
