A tribute to Condoleeza Rice and George W. Bush who, despite voluminious evidence to the contrary, said, "I don't think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center, take another one and slam it into the Pentagon, that they would try to use an airplane as a missile," adding that "even in retrospect" there was "nothing" to suggest that" and "I don't think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees," respectively.

Nobody Could Have Predicted...

that it would be found that Enron, showing a callous disregard for the lives and safety of its fellow American citizens, had manipulated the energy market for its own gain by taking advantage of a deregulation scheme it had promoted.

that it was not “market forces” that caused or could correct the pricing and/or rolling blackouts as stated by George W. Bush and Dick Cheney.

that the California energy crisis, which was manufactured by taking advantage of “flawed legislation” that had been written by a republican (Jim Brulte) and signed into law by a republican (Pete Wilson) and allowed to manifest itself without intervention from republicans (George W. Bush & Dick Cheney) would end up putting another republican (Arnold Schwarenegger) into the governor’s office in California.

that the Bush Administration’s close ties to Enron would escape media scrutiny in this latest airing of Enron tapes.

that two energy guys (Bush and Cheney) either were completely duped by Ken Lay and Enron or they were lying. So was it incompetence or dishonesty?

that Ken Lay, although indicted, remains a free man while Martha Stewart has just about completed her incarceration on a charge, that when put in perspective, seems oddly disproportionate.

that American citizens would be prohibited from attending a taxpayer funded event because they exercised their fundamental First Amendment right of free speech which run counter the present administration yet a
person like Jeff Gannon (nom de plame, oops plume), who promotes the conservative agenda, would be allowed access to White House briefings and press conferences despite no discernible journalistic background, but with a penchant for asking partisan-loaded, friendly questions.

that the White House would deny any knowledge about the use of or maintenance of a "blackball" list which must have come from some other organization over which the White House has no control, much like the Swiftboat Liars.

BTW, whatever happened to those charges against Rush GasBag?
