Abramoff Knew US Would Invade Iraq in March, 2002... seven months before Congress authorized the president to go war.
Here in Northern California, Bush flew in to speak at a closed-door rally at a country club for local politico John Doolittle (R-Abromoffwhore). "For the first time in his career, (Doolittle) is going to have the opportunity to introduce the president to his constituents, and he is tremendously excited about that," Doolittle spokesman Richard Robinson said… The lunch is a $2,000-per-person fundraiser for Rep. John Doolittle with about 300 in attendance at Serrano Country Club. A political science professor at University of the Pacific in Stockton, said Bush's four-state fundraising trip plays to his strength while reducing the risk of political embarrassment. "This is a place, just like an Air Force base or an Army base, where he's not going to get a lot of hecklers," he said of Bush's visit to California's agricultural heartland. "He's always been highly controlled with his events. What they want here are good, positive media events -- do no harm is very important to them -- and money.” And, incidentally, Doolttle's wife Julie Doolittle's company, Sierra Dominion Financial Solutions, earns a 15 percent commission on money she brings in for the Doolittle campaign, meaning their household could take in more than $90,000 as its share of donations from Tuesday's 311 paying guests.
From the LOL files: "No sooner did Congress authorize construction of a 700-mile fence on the U.S.-Mexico border last week than lawmakers rushed to approve separate legislation that ensures it will never be built" That's why they call themselves Minutemen... 'cause that's how long their legislation was effective.
