Warm welcomes for Bully Boy and Condi

Though less violent than in Iraq, recent times haven't been good for the administration either. With some polls putting Bully Boy's approval ratings as low as 32%, it's not been good news. Scotty McClellan was kicked to the curb while Rove was "repositioned" either due to the possibility that he may be indicted by Patrick Fitzgerald in the Plamegate scandal or because the 2006 elections are approaching and the Bully Boy needs his Head Trickster to ensure that the GOP keeps both houses of Congress. (Losing one might mean Congressional committee hearings!)

Two weeks ago, Bully Boy got a "warm" welcome that's worth noting:

"Protesters At Stanford Univ. Block Bush Motorcade" (Democracy Now!):
In California, over 1,000 protesters greeted President Bush on Friday during his visit to Stanford University. Protesters blocked the only street to the site of the president's meeting at the Hoover Institution. This forced the White House to move the planned meeting to the residence of former Secretary of State and Hoover Fellow George Shultz on the outskirts of the campus. Over 100 police dressed in riot gear attempted to clear the street. Three students were arrested for blocking the road. On Saturday, another 2,000 protesters lined the streets of Sacramento where the president gave an Earth Day speech on fuel cell technology. 500 protesters also gathered in San Jose where Bush met with California governor Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and high-tech leaders at Cisco Systems.

Last week Condi Rice also had a warm welcoming:

"Thousands Protest Condoleezza Rice in Greece" (Democracy Now!):
In Greece, thousands of demonstrators tried to march earlier today to the U.S. embassy in Athens to protest a visit by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Police dressed in riot gear fired tear gas and clashed with demonstrators. On Monday, protesters managed to hoist a giant poster reading "Condoleezza Rice Go Home" from the central Athens Music Hall, next to the U.S. embassy. Two years ago Rice's predecessor Colin Powell had to cancel a visit to Athens in order to avoid mass protests.

May the Henry Kissinger fate (where he has to check on extradition policies before traveling out of the United States to avoid risking prosecution) await Bully Boy, Condi, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Alberto Gonzales and the whole gang. Lies from their lips and blood on their hands.
