Bush to Slash Counterterrorism Funding

WASHINGTON - The Bush administration intends to slash counterterrorism funding for police, firefighters and rescue departments across the country by more than half next year, according to budget documents obtained by The Associated Press.

The Homeland Security Department has given $23 billion to states and local communities to fight terrorism since the Sept. 11 attacks, but one document says the administration is not convinced that the money has been well spent and thinks the nation's highest-risk cities have largely satisfied their security needs.
WTF is this?

I thought Dumbya was going to smoke em out and git em to all of the turists out there in turist land? I thought he was the meanest hombre on earth who was going to protect the homeland from furiners who wanted to harm 'merika. I thought Bush was never going to let us down in his unrelenting search for truth, justice, and the Repignofascist way?

So how can this be? How can he allow the amount of money going to first responders who will be the ones who will actually protect us after the next attack be slashed while all of those turists are out there turizing? I guess he feels confident in slashing this funding now that he's no longer running for office and the war in Iraq and Afghanistan are doing so well stabilizing the Middle East and making young democracies pop up all over the reason. That must be the reason.

Of course if any Democrat in the House or Senate proposed this sweeping decline in the amount of money available for counter terrorism every jackal in the Repignofascist noise machine would be calling for his head. Rush Limbaugh would be hyperventilating. Michael Savage would be calling for riots. Sham Hannity's head would actually stay upright. But since its Bushie making the call and the conservative biased media is pro-Bushie, then we can't expect any righteous indignation.

But just watch. As soon as the next turist attacks Bush's 'merika, he and all the rest of the Repignofascists will blame the Democrats and scream that Congress is asleep at the switch.

How many days of this bastard do we have left to endure?
