Questions Tim "General Electric Owns My Butt and Keeps Me Living a Lavish Lifestyle" Russert Won't Ask Bush On "Meet the Press" (Or Really "Answer Softball Questions from Tim") Because Russert is a GE Corporate Toady, Not a Respectable Journalist Anymore
A BUZZFLASH READER COMMENTARY
Dear Tim Russert:
Will you be asking the President if it was appropriate for him to land on the carrier in a flight suit after he was grounded in 1972 for failing to show for his physical? Will you ask him if the mission is really accomplished?
Will you be asking the President about the famous "torn document" which supposedly shows his guard duty, yet has no name or date (just a W). If this document is a fake, it could lead to a great story.
Will you ask the President if he has asked for the person that leaked Valerie Plame's name to come forward and resign? Has he instructed his people to sign the waiver?
Will you ask him why he has not cooperated fully with the 9/11 commission and why they can't even have their own notes? Why was Condi Rice not put under oath and why is all of her testimony secret?
Will you ask the President why he has held so few press conferences in this time of war and shouldn't he keep us more informed with more of them?
Will you ask what he said that the average tax cut was $1000, yet the average worker making less than $80,000 only got about $250. Isn't this misleading the public?
Will you be asking the president about his faulty statements that his budget will cut the defecit in half over 5 years. Please play back the statements regarding the deficit from the previous years which have turned out to be far from reality.
Will you ask the President how he could take off the month before 9/11 when there was increased chatter and the AG Ashcroft had taken the step of not flying commercial that summer? Will you ask the President if he feels it is appropriate for the VP to invite Justice Scalia as his guest to go duck hunting when the Energy case is pending. Is it a conflict of interest?
Will you be asking the President about his brother's paternity problem and how he feels about his brother having sex with Asian prostitutes?
Will you ask the President if perhaps he owes an apology to Hans Blix and Scott Ritter, since they were right about Iraq.
Will you ask him why he appointed Iran/Contra convicted felons John Poindexter, Otto Reich, etc., to Administration Posts?
Will you ask him about his "ranch" which was miraculously built just in time for his presidential run. Is it nothing more than a set for photo-ops which link him to Reagan?
And finally, Ask him if he is he really afraid of horses?
