As Troops Die, Bush Tapes Appearance On Fishing Show. Under a recent headline -- "12 Marines killed" -- we learn that Bush held a 20-minute telephone conference call to discuss the slaughter of Americans in Iraq. See? He is too working! ... "On Saturday, Bush and his father were to go fishing at the ranch's bass pond with a crew from the Outdoor Life Network's 'Fishing with Roland Martin.' The White House approached the network about coming to film Bush, who is eager to cultivate an image as a sportsman with the millions of voters who hunt and fish."

Bush is now on his "33rd visit to his ranch since [taking office, totaling all or part of 233 days] ... Adding his 78 visits to Camp David and his five visits to Kennebunkport, Maine, Bush has spent all or part of 500 days in office at one of his three retreats, or more than 40 percent of his presidency."

Catherine Austin Fitts, Former Assistant Secretary of Housing under George HW Bush to Condoleezza Rice: "You are a liar. ... You are guilty of criminal gross negligence. If you want to catch a terrorist today, you need look no further than your own mirror." ... And Uggabuuga on Rice.
