    all hat, no cattle

    As pointed out in a Washington Post article, Dubya seems to be all hat and no cattle on Democracy's march.
    The administration has pumped substantial new funds into promoting democracy in Muslim countries but virtually nowhere else in the world. The administration has cut budgets for groups struggling to build civil society and democratic institutions in Russia, Eastern Europe and Asia, even as Moscow has pulled back from democracy and governments in China, Burma, Uzbekistan and elsewhere remain among the most repressive in the world.
    While bringing "democracy" to Iraq and Afghanistan is dandy, we seem to be hypocritical when it comes to the rest of the world. After all, it's treason to buy Cuban products, but there's nothing wrong with purchasing Vietnamese or Chinese items. Not to mention that we are all to chummy with Saudi Arabia. Why does George get away with saying one thing, and doing another and have the nerve to call John Kerry a flip-flopper?

    Now that all posts are old and moldy, you're more than welcome to steal what you want. Email me
