Flip Flop

October 13, 2004
Kerry: "Six months after he said Osama bin Laden must be caught dead or alive, this president was asked, 'Where's Osama bin Laden?' He said, 'I don't know. I don't really think about him very much. I'm not that concerned.' We need a president who stays deadly focused on the real war on terror."

Bush: "I don't think I ever said I'm not worried about Osama bin Laden. That's kind of one of those exaggerations."

March 13, 2002
Bush: "We haven't heard much from [bin Laden]. And I wouldn't necessarily say he's at the center of any command structure. And, again, I don't know where he is. I'll repeat what I said. I truly am not that concerned about him. I know he is on the run."

Also, did anyone notice that Bush's answer to the flu vaccine problem is to import more of the vaccine from Canada? This is the same country from which we're not supposed to import cheaper drugs because they might not be safe. Whatever.

Obviously, God won't strike people dead for lying. After all, W survived the debates.

When he says drug importation from Canada is a safety issue, I want to puke. No, George, it's a protect-your-business-cronies-from-the-drug-companies issue. Corrupt, lying bastard. Are we really supposed to think Canadian drugs are unsafe? It's not some third-world rat-hole of a country. We're talking about Canada, a first world country, just like us (only not as arrogant and not having a love affair with guns).

Well, the real kicker is, they're NOT Canadian drugs; they're American pharmaceuticals that are being sold more cheaply in other countries, including Canada, because only the US system allows Big Pharma to get away with that shit... so the safety issue is completely out the window, because the drugs HAVE ALREADY BEEN CERTIFIED BY THE FDA...
