Enabler

I happened to be watching local TV news last night and saw Sheriff Darren White holding a news conference about his buying a new $3,000,000 helicopter for his office. Instead of cooperating with the Albuquerque Police Department and sharing a chopper, White spent a fortune on his own machine.

You will be seeing a lot of White showing his face on local news for free publicity now that he is running for Heather Wilson's seat. He knows the territory since he did a stint as a crime reporter on a local TV station.

I think all this publicity will not be able to get Darren White away from the fact that he was one of New Mexico's biggest enablers for bush's war in Iraq. White was a Chairman for bush's campaign and an unabashed supporter. This will hang over his head no matter how much arm waving he does.

Just look at this quote from White, "We can sit back and wait for the terrorists to plan an attack on us," White said. "Or we can bring the fight to the terrorists. America needs a president who means what he says and says what he means. And if you don't believe it, just ask Saddam Hussein."

Now, what the hell does this mean? More nonsensical nattering of a bush supporter?

You hit the nail on the head about his nonsense. That quote should be enough for anyone. The Bush message is all about confusing the issues, instilling fear, and falsely painting the "enemy" (Democrats) as terrorist-lovers. That tactic may have worked on a lot of people three years ago, but I would hope that it's seen by most as the garbage it is now.

By the way, good blog. I agree with a lot of your views and hope you consider a higher office again at some point! (I'm sure you're doing a lot of good these days, though.)
