Ccccc Cafferty File!

Q: What does it mean that President Bush is using taxpayer money to fund a private army in Iraq without the knowledge of the American people?

A: Since when has President Bush cared about the American people being fully informed? When he put out his Hurricane Katrina Lessons Learned report did he say "I completely left out the hospital with the highest patient death toll and they happen to be friends of my father's, the earthly one"? Nope, and The Carlyle Group's LifeCare Hospitals are most grateful.

A: Did you notice how poorly the Pentagon is keeping track of those private contractors? After six years in office plenty of evidence exists of the Bush team’s managerial incompetence. From “who could have foreseen” to “miscalculated”, their droppings are everywhere. I hate to tell you Jack, but Bush wants to contract out everything. Next up for a big round of outsourcing are government sponsored health insurance and retirement, otherwise known as Social Security. How well will they keep track of those insurance companies or financial managers?

Q: What does it mean if Republican Sen. Chuck Hagel is a tougher critic of the Bush administration than many Democrats?

A: It means both have seen the President's dismal approval ratings. Chuck's language indicates he wants a divorce ASAP. Meanwhile the Democrats are delighted to let Bush sit in the slop. Not long ago Congress had such a rating. The Democrats probably want to enjoy their dry clothes for just a bit.

Q: Is it possible to train politicians not to say stupid things ever?

A: Are they speaking to the level of most Americans to garner votes or do they really believe some of the "stupid" things they say?

A: Hey we’re all human. The question is whether the "stupid" statement is projection or a reflection? And how often do they occur (for leaders other than our President)? He proves not all are trainable.
