   Hey Blitzer: Good Thing CNN Is Not Our Only News Source

Open Letter to Wolf Blitzer:

Good Thing CNN Is Not Our Only News Source

by Bia Winter

Your piece just now about the Bush Presidency nearly made me gag! George Bush, Jr. is far and away the WORST, not to mention the Dumbest, President we have EVER suffered!

What does America do with its Great Presidents? They get assassinated, or discredited by treasonous plots with the enemy (the Iran hostage deal), or pilloried over a sexual indiscretion!

What really brought me to the gag reflex was your comment that "9/11 was MADE for the Bush Presidency"! Well, That's exactly what a lot of us are worried about, until we see some real evidence to the contrary (instead of stonewalling). For all we know at this time, 9/11 was allowed, facilitated, or even MADE FOR George Bush's presidency. It’s your job, Mr. Blitzer, to investigate. But instead, you fawn.

Here's a President that starts with an abortion of the Democratic process, goes on to dismantle all common gains for the people and the environment and squanders our surplus into a deficit with irresponsible tax cuts for the rich and reckless foreign wars and empire-building. (Does ROME ring a bell?).

Already on his way down, 9/11 conveniently "happens" for Bush’s political benefit, involving those the Bush family and oil buddies have long been kissing up with. This COULD be the very most serious form of TREASON, or at least IMPEACHABLE, and NO ONE is asking the obvious question! How long does the elephant have to sit in the middle of the living room before you can see it?

If you in the media wanted to be truly relevant, you could start here, and INVESTIGATE! I know, it's hard to keep up with all the outrages that keep spewing forth out of this awful administration—like so many turds in the cesspool that this government has become. Yet you guys on CNN still interview world criminals like Kissinger with a straight face!

Give us a break! You think we only get news from YOU?
