Bush needs more money

AAPP: WaPo is reporting on Another "Surprise Photo Op" for Bush. Now let's see what the Democrats, who black people in America seem to love to vote for, do about his request for 50 Billion dollars more for a lost war on Iraq. Maybe we should rewind to about a year ago, when he said the same things that he is saying in Iraq today - this as black folks die in the streets of America.

From Philadelphia to Oakland black folks are suffering through a plague of killings, in Oakland homicides spiked 57 percent last year. People from around the world can see and hear what is going on in Black America. Yet George Bush would rather provide billions of dollars to an Iraq war rather than help Americans fight a crime war going on in our own backyard. But we would be expecting too much of a person who stole 2 elections. Bush says his "unilateral arrogance" made world better off. I guess he is more concerned about his legacy - wealthy boredom.

Bush Goes to Anbar- Meets Patraeus

WaPo reports Bush made a surprise visit to this isolated and well fortified air field in Anbar province Monday to meet with top U.S. and Iraqi officials and to showcase what he calls one of the successes of his decision to surge 30,000 additional troops into Iraq.

The WaPo report said, Bush slipped out of a side door of the White House for the furtive trip that was aimed at bolstering his position for not drawing down troops from Iraq. During six hours on the ground here, the president was to meet with Army Gen. David Petreaus and other military commanders and Ryan C. Crocker, the U.S. ambassador to Iraq, before holding a session with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and members of his central government.

Wapo also reports Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Defense Secretary Robert Gates, traveled ahead of Bush to the base and was scheduled to take part in some of the meetings, along with other top military officials, including Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Peter Pace and U.S. Middle East commander Adm. William Fallon.

"This will be the last big gathering of the president's advisers and Iraqi leaders before the president makes his decisions on the way forward," said Geoff Morrell, Pentagon spokesperson. "He's assembled his war council, and they are all convening with Iraqi leaders to discuss the way forward."Bush Makes "Surprise" Visit To Iraq. Again.
