CBS Airs Fake Cover Of Bush Memoir, Admits It Made ‘Mistake’

December 24, 2010 by  

CBS airs fake cover of Bush memoir, admits it made 'mistake'CBS News has taken another inaccurate jab at former President George W. Bush.

According to media reports, a fake version of Bush's book Decision Points appeared during CBS Sunday News on Dec. 19. The image of the book cover read "Desision Points: How I Managed to Go Eight Years Without Making One Good Decision."

In a statement, CBS acknowledged that it had unintentionally made a mistake by using a doctored image that was found on the Internet. The statement added that nobody in the newsroom spotted the gaffe, and the network pledged to "be more careful when downloading material" online.

According to Newsday writer Verne Gay, CBS News has received criticism in the past for being biased against Bush and other conservative politicians. In 2004, Dan Rather reported that a series of memos that were critical of Bush's National Guard service had been discovered. The authenticity of these documents was quickly questioned in The Washington Post, The New York Times and the Chicago Sun-Times.

CBS later retracted the story, and the controversy ultimately led to Rather's departure from the network.

    Oh, yeah, RIIIGHT! I do NOT for a minute believe that it was a ‘mistake’, just as I never believed that the fake report that Dan Rather put out was a ‘mistake’. The liberal media has hated George Bush since he was first running for president, & apparently will stop at nothing to try to destroy him even after his terms are over. And, likewise, the White House. They want to blame every bad thing on Mr. Bush. Was he a perfect president? No. But he sure didn’t go around the world apologizing for America, nor go out of his way to try to destroy us.

    • Allan Halbert

      This exemplifies that Progressives have lost the ability to judge their own actions until they are caught. They have become ideological sociopaths and I am surprised that psychologists have not begun offering them some sort of objectivity or reality counseling.

      • Lueder

        They don’t even have the ability to judge their own actions even AFTER they are caught. Clinton didn’t have the balls to resign after he was impeached. He got caught with his hand in the cookie jar so to speak and kept denying it.

      You are so right in your analysis of the mainstream media pigsty.
      It was not error on the part of CBS, unless they are stating that which we have known right along–their so-called journalists are absolutely incompetent.

      • Devasahayam

        Gramma4Life, please stop using “main”stream media–the correct word is lamestream, abbreviated LSM.

        • stRanger

          Sorry, but it is not “Lame Stream Media”, it is Blame Stream Media. Or Mean Streak Media. But, they’re all good.

          There hasn’t been a shred of responsible journalism at the national level in 30 years. Even those true journalistic hold-outs at the local level are being stomped out.

          If we need to find true journalism we must go to the internet. The net that the Communists via a roll-over FCC just seized.

          We better learn to read smoke signals. Either that or GET THOSE MARXISTS OUT OF GOVERNMENT.

      • Larry

        Dogma, People like you are very disturbed. You can’t / won’t give a man a chance. George W. Bush has the decency to admit some mistakes he thought he made & tried to permantly cut taxes people like you & defend this country. (not playing the blame game or golf game) like your man that is in there now. And once you see what your man obama is going for in his administraion’s agenda you will flip. You must be blind to not see the writing on the wall. This country is being sold down the river, this administration does not want jobs, it wants power. They are intentionally trying to break this country financially so your boy can shoot for the world leader, through the united nations of course & then this country will be socialistic communist. bowing to the united nations & maybe china – etc!

      Hi Sharon,

      The major networks are BIG BUSINESS. They are NOT liberal. Dan Rather was dumped. Many stations were punished by the right for the wordrobe malfunction.

      Big TV is heavily regulated. Even small stations get punished with antenna violations (the need to be painted just so), EAS (a total waste. bush didn’t use it at all during 911 or Katrina), and information not being perfect in their public files.

      I am presently reading “Decision Points” I believe it gives a great insight into the man and his reasoning. Few presidents in history have
      indicated a greater love and respect for his country, and his position of leadership. He maintained the dignity of the office,while yeilding to a greater power, his God, for wisdom. I want to join thousands of other by saying, President Bush, we miss you. Luther N. Davis III

  • http://bjwholmes@verizon.net bjholmes

    George Bush is a “Recovering” alcoholic. Liberals are not recovering from being dishonesst. George Bush is a Godly man. The God of liberals is “self”. George Bush prayed for guidance in decisions. Well, so do Democrats. Unfortunately they pray to money and power and they have been receiving many blessings. We must have God’s blessings to restore America, which He granted us to begin with. Read leigimate biographies of the Founding Fathers and their strong faith in God. How we have been blessed. Stronger faith and strong action to win in 2012 must be our New Year’s resolution.

    • dstk

      How blind are you. It is Republicans that pray to money and power, and they pushed through and backed whole heartedly the tax cuts for the rich… that was the compromise Pres. Obama had to make to get some additional help for all the people that lost their jobs due to the Bush-era decisions. Come-on there has to be at least one conservative here that lost their job to this economic recession/depression…

      • Allan Halbert

        There ARE conservatives that lost their jobs! I lost mine, and now have another one. Conservatives who lost their jobs STILL believe in conservative principles and free enterprise as the keys to the most prosperous culture in history. Having lost a job or not, the motivation is to be self-reliant and not feel entitled (except to the money the government takes).

      • Randy

        Get over it for God’s sake. You liberals are still eaten up with Bush-hatred. He was an imperfect, God-fearing man, not the messiah in the White House that you worship today.

        • dstk

          not eaten up with hate… living day to day with the economy and all the problems, still living it, how many are not? This whole crisis is far from over.

          • Vicki

            A crisis brought on by many years of government spending and forcing bad business decisions on private industry.

          • belle

            What has apparently slipped the liberal minds is that the “blame” game, especially the one being used here, doesn’t adequately reflect the truth. Since the Congress initiates all bills (spending, finance, pork, etc.), it is the Democrats who were in charge of the Congress during President Bush’s tenure. Other than Executive Orders, which do not pertain to budgetary matters, the President cannot pass laws that do not come across his desk from Congress (ie from a Democratic Congress in this instance…of which the travelling “President” was a part.)Therefore, I submit that Obama was part of the problem (along with Barney Frank, Maxine Waters, and censured New York Rep. Rangel…all of whom were major players in the housing/banking debachle.) As one Democratic representative put it when responding to a push for downpayment increases on home loans, “well, that would mean they would have to be able to pay for it.” Couldn’t have said it better…what an idiot.

          • Vigilant

            belle,

            No matter how many times we try to teach the in-denial liberals the truth of the housing crisis, they still maintain it was GWB’s fault. Several attempts by the Bush administration to regulate the Fannie/Freddy profligacy were rebuffed by the Black Caucus, Finance and Banking committees. It was truly political correctness that precipitated the housing and then banking crises.

          • GenEarly

          Really? Clinton left a BUDGET SURPLUS and things were OK. Bush takes over and things go into the dumper. Looks very simple to me. Bush did it to the country, Clinton did it with a girl. As far as the country goes I’ll take Clinton. Maybe we should have gotten Bush a girl.

      • Lueder

        Let’s just take all the money that the rich have (legally, through taxes of course {cough}) and see how many employers are left. The government is NOT an employer. They do NOT generate revenue they only take it. How many poor employers do you know? How many do you work for?

        just to refresh your memory when polosi and reid took over congress the market was over fourteen thousand two years later it was near seven thousand which is where it was when bush got it from clinton

        • Vicki

          Well we know that liberals believe that Bush is all powerful and he did it. Pelosi and Reid were powerless to stop him. They STILL believe him to be so powerful that a completely Democrat Congress with super majority and filibuster proof numbers and a DEMOCRAT President couldn’t stop Bush from getting his tax cuts for the rich extended for another 2 years.

          I begin to understand why some people consider liberalism to be a mental disorder.

          • Robert Smith

            Clue: The extreme right used procedural ploys to thwart the will of a MAJORITY of Americans. And the repugs are in goose step with each other because big business holds their campaign money hostage if they don’t act just right. It is politics of the worst sort.

      • post_turtle_hunter

        Bush did some “progressive” stunts. That is fact. But, he warned congress as did McCain, that the subprime debacle was going to destroy the economic foundation–and that sad excuse for a man, barnee fwank with his sidekick kris dodd, sent the torpedo into the financing scheme–that is a fact. Did Bush spend with a republican congress? Darn tootin’ he did, but oboingo has spent what the ALL of the preceding presidents spent combined. There is your economic failure, and why the economy is teetering on the brink of stupidity. Gov’t cannot produce one thing, and it cannot give anything (money) to anyone that it first does not take (money) from someone else. Oh, there is one “tangible” product of gov’t…MISERY.

          And people keep saying that Republicans blocked more regulation. This video clearly shows that it was DEMOCRATS who blocked the increased regulation that Bush and McCain kept asking for.

          • http://captainjevans@hotmail.com Wes Evans

            The Bush Administration pushed for oversight and enforcement of existing regulations. The Congressional Democrats blocked the enforcement of existing regulation. Frank and Dodd got cover from the media in this effort. The Democrats who were responsible have never been called to account by the media a media who has been obsessed with
            Bush bashing.

            “Less than a year” — Where have you been? It will be two years at the end of next month. The Dems also took over Congress in the 2006 election. That’s when the economy tanked. Get your facts straight, please. It is so much like all liberals–distort the facts to try to make your point.

            Jan 25 2009 to Jan 25 2010 is 1 year.

            So it has been ALMOST 2 YEARS. that is quite a bit longer than “less than 1 year”. In fact it is a YEAR longer then “less than a year”.

          there are plenty of people who are not rich and employe others, most of the small business persons, probably because they came by it honestly. You all lump everything together on one side or the other. Not everyone that employes is rich, not everyone that has achieved ownership is honest, not everyone that is hurting or lost their job is a looser and just wants to take or feels entitled, and being liberal doesn’t mean, everyone shouldn’t work for what they have. Many have and are loosing everything the worked their whole lives for, and just because they are older 55-65 and have worked their way up the ladder (YES EARNED IT) are now being eliminated by the, Oh should I say rich, certainly the greedy… so that they can themselves not have a hit in their income and profits. It is more profitable to eliminate the high income employees and hire the young. Is that honest, is that right, or do they simply deserve it, just because they somehow got there.

          • belle

            Perhaps the main issue with those of us who work or did work is that while we worked, the Democrats as far back as Kennedy and Johnson…if not farther back, decided that the workers should support those who don’t work, not because they can’t, but because they choose not to work. Can you say WELFARE!! I’m tired of paying lazy, self-indulgent, illiterate by choice people to sit on their butts and/or procreate for money. For decades now, the workers are tired of the “give-away” programs for the able-bodied but too lazy people who suck at the governmental teets.

            I don’t mind helping when people are willing to try, but to just sit around and whine because the government didn’t respond fast enough or with enough or big enough is rediculous. I won’t even begin to get into the assault on the “trust fund” that used to be Social Security.

        • Vigilant

          marvin, how about researching your “facts” before you spout the propaganda of the left?

          You might be interested in http://www.craigsteiner.us/articles/16 , although I doubt you will be. Steiner correctly says,

          “Time and time again, anyone reading the mainstream news or reading articles on the Internet will read the claim that President Clinton not only balanced the budget, but had a surplus. This is then used as an argument to further highlight the fiscal irresponsibility of the federal government under the Bush administration.

          The claim is generally made that Clinton had a surplus of $69 billion in FY1998, $123 billion in FY1999 and $230 billion in FY2000 . In that same link, Clinton claimed that the national debt had been reduced by $360 billion in the last three years, presumably FY1998, FY1999, and FY2000–though, interestingly, $360 billion is not the sum of the alleged surpluses of the three years in question ($69B + $123B + $230B = $422B, not $360B).

          While not defending the increase of the federal debt under President Bush, it’s curious to see Clinton’s record promoted as having generated a surplus. It never happened. There was never a surplus and the facts support that position. In fact, far from a $360 billion reduction in the national debt in FY1998-FY2000, there was an increase of $281 billion.”

          • Robert Smith

            Strange accounting from the right.

            If it was all so bad because of Clinton why did it get WORSE during eight bush years? Was your hero too weak to fix it?

            Rob

          • JeffH

            Robert Smith…stick this in your commie pipe and smoke it!

            Yes, the budget was almost balanced in FY2000 (ending in September 2000 with a deficit of “only” $17.9 billion), but it never reached zero–let alone a positive number. Clinton’s last budget proposal for FY2001, which ended in September 2001, generated a $133.29 billion deficit. The growing deficits started in the year of the last Clinton budget, not in the first year of the Bush administration.

            Where was the Myth Started?

            That is very easy to answer; Bill Clinton himself;
            President Clinton announces another record budget surplus
            From CNN White House Correspondent Kelly Wallace

            September 27, 2000
            Web posted at: 4:51 p.m. EDT (2051 GMT)

            WASHINGTON (CNN) — President Clinton announced Wednesday that the federal budget
            surplus for fiscal year 2000 amounted to at least $230 billion, making it the largest in U.S.
            history and topping last year’s record surplus of $122.7 billion.

            WHY WOULD A POLITICIAN LIE ABOUT HIS ACHIEVEMENTS?

            The reasons are limitless but it could be as simple as why anyone lies on their resumes; to artificially inflate their successes. Either way the point is moot because he categorically lied and to make matters worse, no one in the media challenged it and it was clear from this statement that he was endorsing the Vice President in his bid for the presidency and eveidently so was the media, even way back in 2000.

    The liberal media, a term that is used exclusively by extreme right wing nuts, has many good reasons for its dislike of Georgie W. Shrub. For starters, his economic policy damaged our country to the extent that it will take years to recover; his foreign policy made the United States one of the most hated countries in the world and his domestic policy impinged on our constitutional rights. He is the very worst president this country has ever seen, and all the press did was report that fact.

          Control is mostly over and most of the stimulus money given to Chevy has been returned.

          BTW, Ford didn’t take any money even though the AFA tried to generate a boycot. Just goes to show that those who market to ALL Americans can do better than politics.

          Too bad big business is so interested in control rather than a true free market.

          • thinking

            Robert, where did you hear that most of the money has been returned? Obama? The money has not been returned and GM has 40 billion more in tax incentives. If Gm stock gets to $54 a share then 40 billion would be received by the government or half of what GM received. Odd if something is said on TV it is true, even if the numbers don’t match. So if the media says we are doing better than last year we are, right! only 9.8% unemployed, better than that gwb where it was 4.5% why it is twice as good now.

    • Rollie

      Well JS you just prove a point. When left wing liberal progressives have nothing inteligent to say or facts to back them up they revert to slandering the right. You think Bush was the worst president in history, sorry to burst your left wing bubble but you are living in the era of the worst president to go down in history. When Bush was president our unemployment was not even close to what it is today and the budget was not even close to what this progressive pres has pushed. How do you feel about your kids and grandkids having to work more jobs to help pay for this over spending pres. Makes you want to go out and ask for more doesn’t it. Bush never bowed to any foreign country or made any speech on how bad our country is. Oh and by the way did you know that this pres has yet to show he is eligible to be pres of this country. He has spent millions on covering up the fact he is not a natural born citizen of this country. You can’t get to his supposed Harvard records or his supposed birth cirtificate from Hawaii. He shows a certificate of birth, which is not the same, and we blindly accept it. All other presidents in history have supplied this piece of paper, why not this imposter. Open your eyes to what is really happening around you and quit wearing color coated progressive left wing blinders before this country is sold down the tubes and your liberties with it. Once freedom is lost you can never get it back.

        • James

          Watch Fox news and you’ll see how a bunch of lies make its way around the world and they don’t apologize for leaving out or making up their own facts. Another example was Tom Coburn being firmly against 9-11 responders and stating the bill was being rammed down everyone’s throat. Nice fantasy, but he was on the committee that held 20 meetings about 9-11 responders and then didn’t bother to show up for the vote. That’s convenient to leave out your committee held 20 meetings and then act like the bill came out of nowhere during the Lame Duck session.

          I was amazed to see Shep Smith call out by name all the Republican politicians that voted against the bill. I guess on Fox they say fair and balanced based solely on Shep Smith being the only person on the network that will call out Repubs as well as Dems when they are screwing up. What about all those memos from Fox executives telling on-air personalities how to frame the argument against Dems. You call that news reporting when you’re told how to frame an argument. I give you credit for sticking to your argument no matter the facts though.

      Sorry JS but Jimmy Carter holds that title and the current president will be given that title at the end of his term.

      If you believe President Bush was a bad president, how can you defend this president and congress which have buried us in debt? Look at the polls regarding this congress and you will see it is graded as the worst in decades and the leaders of the pack are left wing liberals.

      I am neither Democrat or Republican but I know who does and who does not pay taxes. Those you choose to denigrate are paying all but five per cent of the taxes. I would love to see everyone paying a flat rate on what they make and do away with the IRS. Would you be happy then? Probably not because you would be required to pay your share and you would have something else to cry about.

      I am retired and on Social Security; haven’t seen a raise in it in two years now but I am not complaining. I recognize severe cuts have to be made to right our economy and both parties have to share that responsibility.

      A president might have “policy”, but CONGRESS writes the laws. Pelosi and Reid had the helm when the subprime torpedo blew up the engine room. Until you start to understand the massive credit balls of crap and chocolate that were always subject to some losses that were offset by the tasty chocolate parts, none of this will go beyond the tiny, almost irrelevant whining about “bush did it”. Bush didn’t do it, Obama didn’t do it–CONGRESS DOES IT! You are blaming the barn door for letting the cows out; the barn door, pretty much like a president, is just standing there, open or closed, but it can’t open or close itself. Until we all, and I mean ALL, understand that gov’t doesn’t mean to do anything for any of us except bleed of dry of Liberty, Freedom and our Income, we are all going down with the ship. If we can somehow find our way to some understanding of what brought this Great Nation into fruition (self-reliance, Christian values, the rule of law–not this fake, color of law crap that we’re facing on an exponential scale these days, common sense, LOVE for one another, benevolence from the Citizens not forced out of us by some gov’t troll just looking to appease a group to get their vote, and the knowledge of our core values defined by the Founding Fathers in our Bill of Rights then we are doomed as a nation of based on a Constitutional Republic.

        Perfect post_turtle_hunter.

        In a nutshell, Congress does the appropriating and the government agencies spend it. All the financial troubles started in the spring of 2006. That is when the Democrats took over all the committees and began their “redistribution of wealth” agenda. One should note that federal revenues went up with the Bush Tax Cuts. We had an attack on our country. Bush did his job as Commander-n-Chief. Money was indeed spent on Iraq and Afghanistan. Then the Democrats took control of the Financial segment of our country and encouraged the behavior that nearly distroyed the economy. Obama’s aswer? Make it worse. In spite of what the progressive congress and its progressive president has done, We, as a people will endure. We, the people will continue. In the end, I have but one thing leave you. “Less government is better government.”

    • Allan Halbert

      Media not liberal?

      In 1964, leading journalists picked Johnson over Goldwater about sixteen-to one margin, or 94 percent.
      In 1972, over 80 percent voted for McGovern, though more than 60 percent of all voters chose Nixon.
      In 1976, leading journalists preferred Carter over Ford by 5 to 1.
      In 1980, they voted Jimmy Carter over Ronald Reagan, about 4 to 1.
      In 1984, more than twice as many chose Walter Mondale over Ronald Reagan, though the country picked Reagan in a 59 to 41 percent landslide.
      In 1988, leading journalists voted about 9 to 1 for Dukakis over George H Bush.
      In 1992, 90+% of leading journalists voted Clinton over GHW Bush.
      A 1995 survey of White House reporters by U.S. News & World Report concluded that “the White House press corps is overwhelmingly Democratic, confirming a stereotype often promoted by Republicans.”
      From 1968 to 1992, the percentage of reporters selecting the GOP candidate never exceeded 26 percent, though the public chose Republicans in five of the eight elections.

      Liberal bias has intensified since 1996 rather than waned. The percentage of the public that doesn’t think the media is liberal is about 20%, which is about the percentage of liberals.

They do not get to choose who comes in and “applies”; they do not get to “fire” those who don’t want an education (and there are plenty of those); they work with THE PUBLIC. Believe me, as one of those educators who worked with whom you, the public, sent us for 30 years, government indoctrination was FAR from my Mathematics classroom and my Counseling office. I was surrogate mother, father, social worker, cafeteria worker, custodian, FRIEND, and finally, TEACHER. Because of what the “public” has become, educators fill far more jobs than educating, but INDOCTRINATION is not one of them.

            There are numerous current examples of schools discriminating against students on the basis of political correctness. This is advanced by liberal administrators, teachers, atheists, lawyers, and legislators. If you didn’t help this agenda, that’s great. I have friends and relatives in teaching, but paying for an inferior product by world standards, one manipulated by self-serving unions and mind-numbing political correctness is something many Americans will no longer tolerate.

            Second, I do believe that we still have some good teachers left, even in public schools but are incapable to perform to their full capacities because of the politic of it all and the unions tying their hands leaving them holding the bag for the rest of the so called educators who are busier spreading their propaganda versus teaching what they’re getting paid for…The worse part is that many of them were actually convinced that they are doing the right thing,,,So sad….

          • Vigilant

            belle,

            As a mathematics teacher, I don’t suspect that you would have been guilty of indoctrination. However, the disciplines that have become “soft” such as history, social studies, sociology (the names should give some clue), etc., have become the programming grounds of the left.

            Teachers are taught by university profs who are undoubtedly, by and large, leftist socialists. All surveys have proven this to be the case for decades, to the point where it’s not even arguable. Their damage extends beyond the social sciences and has even encroached in the form of junk science such as the global warming canard.

            As a result, the influence of these socialist ideas has become almost universal in the schools. When books such as the communist Howard Zinn’s “People’s History of the US” are used in the classroom, students get a truncated, revised, denigrating and socialist view of our founding and capitalist successes in the world.

          • http://?? Joe H.

The Seller had to pay a down payment, a %age of the selling $$ AND closing costs FOR the buyer!! This amounted to quite a chunk of change taken out of the sellers’ funds! I sold one & it was such a travesty of fairness that I couldn’t even try to sell another. The seller wanted OUT to move to Florida & the wife was happy to sell, but the husband wasn’t!! The real kicker was that the hispanic mortgage-officer Chase Bank wanted me to send him more buyers only he made the mistake of asking me “How’s YOUR Spanish?!!!! I opted out right then…asked “How’s THEIR English?? The first re-rating on the ARM almost broke the market bc these people thought they could re-fi … they couldn’t!! That’s who/what crashed the housing market!! Guess what…the 7year
      ARM’s are coming due in 2011…!! Get ready!! Dodd’s out, Frank isn’t…he’s working on the next 2 agenda items for DADT … gay marriage & housing benefits!! This CRISIS isn’t over…As for GWB, he’s MY President!! Two close friends DIED on 9/11 at mtgs on the

  • Joyce from Loris

    I also watch Fox news, but my husband has encouraged me to watch some of MSMBC, just to see what the other side says. It is amazing how they can take a piece of news, and twist it until it looks like screw. Rachel Maddox is a very dangerous person, with her contorted view of things. I yell at the TV the whole time I am watching MSNBC, which isn’t long. I have not watched the alphabet channels in years!

    • Jukebox

      The “JOURNALISTS” on MSNBC are as dangerous & radical as a Muslim Fundamentalist, Oberman, Matthews, Schultz, etc.

    Since I haven’t watched CBS news for years because of this kind of reporting, fortunately I missed the story. Maybe eventually the sponsers will catch on and just do away with the whole division since it’s a money loser anyway.

      Hey Bruce…

      That is EXACTLY what the AFA tried to do to Ford because the AFA didn’t like Ford “supporting” gays by advertizing in their rags.

      It backfired. Ford supported ALL Americans and didn’t need to take any stimulous money. Seems like respecting ALL Americans is the way to go, and Ford is an excellent example.

        Rob, we all know that you are gay. Why do you always have to “force” gays into so many of your issues, yet cry, scream and denegrate every commenter who might mention anything remotely related to religion?
        Again, you are one twisted and sick hypocrit! Not because you are gay but because you commit the same mistakes you accuse others of doing.

  • T

    Why dont CBS write something true for once? Like the failed policies of current POTUS! Excuse me, failed Agenda! We are slowly dieing as the greatest nation on Gods Green Earth, Yes i said God! All these progressive stations want to do is speed it up! Why dont they see who really started this mess we are in, and see truths about Bush’s part trying to stop it? Dont take me wrong, ole Geargie boy is part of our inflated debt, but the way current administration is handling our mess is worsing our demise. All the American people want, is the truth!If FCC wants to stop the bull, start with stopping CBS!

      And ABC CBS NBC PBS but nooooo just people with comone sence

  • Boyd T Cochrane

    Let us not forget in its massive eight year criticism of George W. Bush that CBS was one of the three blind mice, along with NBC and ABC, which totally and absolutely failed to vet then candidate Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential campaign. That failure to vet was openly and immediately admitted just days after the election by one Journalist with the courage to admit a grave mistake. In my opinion that failure to vet was a complete abdication of responsibility of those 3 media and is totally responsible for why we got what we got.

    • ValDM

      The problem is far worse than you’ve described. His own state didn’t vet him before they sent him to DC as their elected official. How did he even get in the Senate without being vetted by his own state? This lie started in his “home” state and has been perpetuated longer than is even believable. HOW did he even get to the Senate? Are there documents in Illinois that might shed light on this?

  • Jeff Collins

    The saddest part of all this is that CBS evidently has so little respect for it’s few remaining viewers that it expects that they will believe this shabby lie.

      D; Your an oddball but welcome to the crap shoot. All networks make blunders so get real. Although this one by CBS is odder than you and the excuse is rather lame. I believe George Bush was naive on the issues and made serious mistakes. This man was also deeply patriotic and in love with America and all she stands for. His heart was in the right place but his head was ruled by others. I sincerely hope for the best in his retirement and if I would meet him today I would wish him a Merry Christmas.

  • Bob Hauser

    Yes, as usual, it didn’t take a New York second for this to turn into a Bush v Clinton, snivel libertarian versus kosher CONservative (aka “neocon” artist) slamfest….George W. Bush was like every other talking face on the end of a stick that we have been cursed with in the White Brothel throughout the last century and thus far into this…a self-serving narcissistic piece of dreck that was vetted and then castrated for “service” by AIPAC. Whether CBS blundered on this occasion or not, Bush’s eight years in the OFFAL Office were proof positive that the people in this country don’t give a rat’s what gets dredged out of an estuary and dumped on the plush carpeting of high office. Like that shriveled up little flea bag of a wretch, Harry S Truman, Bush was flatly incapable of personal success but was from a stink-rich petro family and was manipulable in his ego gluttony and thusly soon discovered by AIPAC and subsequently and in turn palmed off on the droolingly stupid public of this country as a “choice” alongside the other “choice”, Al Gore, whose senator father was in bed with soviet laundry jew-boy and petrobuckster, Armand Hammer.

    Do you have any idea why they call it CBS?….it is because when you tune it in, that is all you will C…a bunch of BS which should surprise no one with any gray matter as it is owned by jew Bill Palinsky.

    All that aside, the Dubya was nothing but an oath-violating piece of dreck who wiped out all of our Constitutional rights with his idiotically misnomered “Patriot Act”, wrecked this country irreparably and was an unmitigated god damned oath violating sonovabitch. There are no words in any language of this earth that are capable of doing proper justice to the sheer rot in his bowels and as much as I do in fact solemnly hate his guts for what he did to this country and, far worse, what he did to a country whose rich culture predates ours by millenia, so in like measure do I hate the sheer raging and suicidal stupidity of the people in this country for tolerating that coprophagous bastard in the Blight House for eight very long and miserable years.

    I wish that Mercury Cougar that careened across the Bush’s front lawn in Dallas the other day and almost slammed into the damned place had been packed with semtex. If the people in America can’t come up with any better than a couple of pieces of white trash like Clinton and Bush then followed by a mackdaddy chocolate jesus, the nation richly deserves to perish.

  • CDfromKY

    Above comments is a perfect example of the progress made of “how to bring down a Great Free Nation.

    1. Destroy their Heroes
    1a. Publish altered History Books for them to read
    2. Subject their Military to insults and derision
    3. Shout fanatic idealogies till they start fighting among themselves
    4. Use Spin Doctors to repeat lies enough till a majority believe the lies. Engage the News media and the Internet to accomplish this end.
    5. Make “accidental” mistakes on TV insulting past Presidents,etc.
    6. Constantly bombard the public with propoganda suited to the “Destroy America” agenda. Create a totally incompetent Government cotrolled by money.
    7. Create blogs to keep Americans divided and fighting. Plant Spin Doctors to accomplish this. keep the hate alive! Encourage lawlessness.
    8. When Americans realize what’s happening and try to form a different Party based on the Constitution devise news releases that label this new Party as a bunch of crazies and fanatics.
    9. Bombard their religous beliefs with insults and derision

    10. Gain control of the public’s money. Financially challenged people are so much easier to control

    This process started in the sixties and continues today.

    Wake up sheeples the wolf is getting CLOSER!!

By the same token, the more they demonize Bush and all things conservative, the more I avoid watching their lying ‘BS’ station. I’d love to see them chased off the air! They can’t even show a sitcom without throwing in their biased Liberal comments. What a bunch of dimwits.

    Those following the lame stream media are too indoctrinated to comprehend their progressive agenda. Apparently, the distortion and omission of data is acceptable to liberals. The bias that spews from these networks and the constant attack of Fox News proves their inability to grasp reality. Unfortunately, my son is as liberal as they come and a journalist to boot. Need I say more. Political discussions are impossible and generally result in tirades. We can only hope for positive results and that our prayers will be answered. Merry Christmas to all and Happy New Year.

      Great post. We have not have Journalism for many decades now. The colleges and university journalism schools are controled by RADICAL LEFTISTS.

  • http://www.TomBlairEA.com Thomas Avery Blair EA

    I’m sorry, but I have to “chime in” here. Establishing the extension of the so-called “Bush tax cuts” met the Obama agenda two ways: (1) It gave the dems “evidence” of a horde of scape goats to blame (the Republicans again…GW Bush and all the Republicans who voted for it), (2) it also generated an even larger national debt, which simply will speed the full debasement of the Federal Reserve “fiat money” US greenback in 2011 or at the latest in 2012.
    .
    The Federal Reserve ‘fiat money’ has been the world currency carry-value basis for over 50 years but with our national monetized debt obligations, China will soon become the new “World Currency” carry-value basis either in 2011 or early 2012. At that time the USA will remain the world’s largest debtor nation and but almost immediately have a “third world-type economy” who will be utterly unable to borrow more once the “HI-Tax” kicks fully into high gear.
    .
    Remember this when your gasoline hits $5, then $7, then $10, then $15 and higher in a short sequence of hours and days and it will take a day’s wage (in greenback dollars) to buy a loaf of bread. The failure of the Federal Reserve was planned in 1910 on Jekyll Island GA, established (together with the federal income tax) in 1913, and the “greenback” has lost 96% of its’ purchasing power from 1913 to September 30, 2010.
    .
    The day of America’s financial reaconing is coming soon; far, far sooner than most Americans dare imagine.
    .
    I’m already preparing for the coming economic catastrophe that will be far worse than the 1929 depression…are you? Or are you simply listening to and watching numb-sculls on TV and ignoring the fact that America is broke and our government is broken beyond repair.
    .
    Eat, drink and be merry…for tomorrow most of us on Main Street will become paupers, and our children and grandchildren will become the children and grandchildren of paupers and remain pauper themselves because of our nations’ recent financial acts of self-inflicted destruction of our economy and of our nation on the whole.

    At least food for thought, is it not?

    Respectfully submitted,

    Thomas Avery Blair, EA

    I’ve lived for 80 years in this amazing place called the USA and I’m still being educated. I’m convinced that Progressiveism is a disease that needs to be cured. Everyone calls Clinton great because the tech rally created a good economy and they forget that he worked with a Republican Congress the last half of his administration. Now they think Obama can do no wrong with his flowery speeches read from a teleprompter. The “sheep” are being awakened, and will no longer be lead astray.

    bush did a number on the progressives in his first term, that’s why they proclaim him as being dumb. unfortunately, his party let him down in the second term and joined the democratic majority in congress to destroy our economy. he didn’t help himself by trying to be non-partisan and left the door open for criticism. he never stood up to the media c, so what can you expect, they have no respect. people forget about dan rather and walter kronkite of cbs in the late sixties, they were the start of downing america and the obvious leftist movement in the media. watergate opened the floodgates and it’s been all down hill since.

    Come on – you gotta admit: he was a pretty bad president! He also was a rotten businessman, spoiled rich kid, lazy, drunk, drug abuser, wife cheater, phony christian and a lot of other crummy qualities. He made me leave the republican party because he NEVER represented true Conservative values. (I’m not fan of John McCain or the Democrats either, so save your “liberal progressive commie” responses!) Bush did more than Clinton or Obama to destroy this country by spending like crazy, allowing us to be attacked (despite advanced warning), starting a phony war and turning his back on true Conservative values to give away the government to Cheney’s rich cronies.

    Good riddance to the whole family

  • susan

    Maggie, try to convince us again that you are not a kool aide drinking liberal. Get real. I can spot one a mile away.

  • Debra

    I agree that it wasn’t done by mistake. Every Democrat pig has taken a shot at everyone that isn’t a member of their party or is competition. Bush, Palin, and all other’s who have been slighted, discredited, and made fun of (and bullied) in the tabloids and on television should all be sued. Take Joy on “The View”, for example. She chooses to say extremely ignorant things about good people, and she should be fired for it. She is extremely offending. I hope all of America see’s her for being the “pig” that she is, and that includes the rest of the Demonic Democrat pigs that do it. These news agencies and papers should only be permitted to show the facts. They should be fired for producing wayward opinions, belittling and making fun of good honorable people, telling deceptive lies, producing false images, and slander of any kind. They are proving to be extremely unprofessional in their work, and lacking in charactor. I can see it being done in a comic, but on a news station or on a (supposed to be unbiased) television show, shows these people are lacking in good judgment, good behavior, good charactor, honesty, virtue, and honor. They shouldn’t be able to get away with it. It just shows us how corrupt these people have become, all the more reason why we need to fight back.
