Proof Positive That Helen Thomas Is Not Unbiased Toward Bush, Conservatives


These libs are not only clueless, they are honestless. May I suggest Bernard Goldberg's newest book A Slobbering Love Affair: The True (And Pathetic) Story of the Torrid Romance Between Barack Obama and the Mainstream Media ?

Some of Helen Thomas's most infamous quotes:

"This is the worst president ever," she told the Torrance, Calif., Daily Breeze . . . "she comes completely out of the closet in her columns, ripping "Bush's headlong drive into war, his favor-the-rich economic policy and his campaign to put right-wing ideologues on the Supreme Court." . . As the child of Lebanese immigrants, Thomas knows exactly which religious button she's pushing when she repeatedly condemns Bush's plans for war on Iraq as a "crusade." Slate

"Here's a bizarre Bushism. In one of his strangest statements as president, Bush said that Iraq's "not having weapons of mass destruction was a significant disappointment." HT

"To this day, Bush has not given a credible explanation for his war that also has killed tens of thousands of Iraqis." HT

"Bush told the news conference: "Israel has a right to defend itself." He did not say the Palestinians have a right to defend themselves. He also said the Gazans have to stop smuggling arms. But he said nothing about the tons of arms we have supplied Israel." HT

"As for the global economic meltdown, the president admitted he had to abandon his free-market principles and approve of massive government intervention in the economy. He said this switcheroo was required in order to save the free market system. The logic evoked the Vietnam era when we had to destroy a village in order to save it." HT

"The strange twist here is that both Bush and Cheney found ways to skip the draft during the Vietnam era, although they were eligible and in good health."HT

"Heading back home to Texas, Bush said he was "getting off the stage," adding he had had "my time in the klieg lights." Gone but not forgotten, he plans to write a book and said he will be "opining" at times. I'm waiting with bated breath." HT

"The Israelis will never find a better friend than President George W. Bush, who has blocked any early call by the United Nations for a ceasefire in Gaza.In doing so, Bush has enabled the Israelis' brutal land, sea and air offensive against the Palestinians, mostly with American-supplied weaponry." HT

"We have great expectations of the nation's first black president in American history. Right now he seems to be moving toward the comfortable center even when bold moves and compassion are required." HT

"Bush Again Breaks The Wall Between Church And State. Is there anything more that the administration can do to ignore the spirit of the U.S. Constitution before President George W. Bush leaves office? . . . It specifically applies to a $1.5 million grant to World Vision for salaries for staff members on a program that helps at-risk youths avoid joining gangs." HT

"Bush Turns To Government By Veto" HT

"McCain's Running-Mate Pick Reflects Poorly On Him" HT

"Bush Plans To Leave A Lot Of Unfinished Business" HT

"War Without End" HT
