Another "scandal of the moment?" (McAuliffe wipes his feet on Bush doormat...)
Cabelnewser.com ^ | 3/26//04 | Staff

Posted on 03/26/2004 10:31:00 AM PST by veronica

Robert writes in with a question: "Why has there been no flack regarding the tour Judy Woodruff took with Terry McAuliffe yesterday afternoon of the new DNC Headquarters? Before entering his office the camera panned down to get a closeup of his doormat which has a picture of President Bush. McAuliffe made a point of wiping his shoes across the picture of Bush and laughed like it was very funny and not a bit disrespectful. It was stunning.

Ms. Woodruff caught her breath and walked around the mat so as not to step on the president's face." Hmm...is it enough to be a "scandal of the moment?" 11:10:38 AM

Just awful. Like Saddam putting a mosaic of President Bush 41 at the entrance of the al-Rashid Hotel in Baghdad so that all guests had to walk on it in order to enter.

Impressive, Judy. .....serious discipline on her part.

I thought this was a joke post. What a bunch of foul hateful scumbags. The Dems are a dirty corrupt bunch, what a disgrace it will be if McAuliffe and his ilk have free use of our government.

So the RATS have learnd from Saddam Hussein. Typical...


A worker polishes the mosaic of a grimacing George Bush at the Al Rasheed Hotel in Baghdad. U.N. sanctions were imposed on Iraq eight years ago, when Bush was president and fresh from the Allied victory over Iraq in the Gulf War.

The party also formally opened a renovated, technology-packed $30 million headquarters that House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi called "the temple" for political training, fundraising and the crafting of positions and strategy. The building features television and radio studios, expanded office space and a massive new 170-million-name computer database named "Demzilla."

It showed off the new tools for state party officials from around the nation. In briefings, the party put out the word that it will refocus its efforts on grass-roots politics, mounting a county-by-county campaign to avoid the kind of loss it suffered four years ago with Gore as its nominee.

Entering McAuliffe's new corner office, which is equipped as a TV studio, visitors walk over a doormat bearing a likeness of President Bush and the words, "Give Bush the Boot."

The Left Hates Bush... that's all they have to run on in this election.

Remember that thread a few months ago, about Winston Churchill's parrot that used to say "F*** Hitler"?

All you need to know about this election can be summarized by answering these questions:

1. If GWB had a parrot, what would the parrot say? Most likely he would curse Osama Bin Laden or Saddam Hussein.

2. If John Kerry had a parrot, what would the parrot say? Most likely he would curse George W. Bush.

This could be the turning part against the libbies. I remember subscribing to Mother Jones. One year I received a ''Ronald Reagon'' floor mat. (actually it was a small towel with Reagon's face on it.)
I thought it was tacky and soon started my journey from being a liberal to thinking form myself and becomming a conservative.

The DNC and Ba'athist Iraq were alike in so many ways (besides having identical taste in doormats):

- buddies with the French.

- despise Bush.

- election cheaters.

- want Israel to concede land to terrorists.

That's actually more than I would have expected from her. Of course, now she'll probably use that as an example of how "impartial" she is -

"Hey, I didn't step on the so-called President's face!"

I do believe that there are countries that people who hold ideals such as McAuliffe maintain would welcome them with open arms. However, if he were to put a welcome mat with their premier or president's face on it he would be the one looking up from a prone position. No, he wouldn't be looking up, he would be facing up, lifeless. They should be thankful that they live in a country that allows an individual to state an opinion. This action by Terry and the DNC is despicable and so does not qualify as an opinion, unless you would say an opinion by a jackass.

What I want to know is why the Democrats have a database with 170 million names in it. What was there source?

There aren't 170 million Democrats in the country. I wonder if there are even 170 million registered voters?

What's in that database? What purpose does it serve?

Privacy minded reporters should find out.

If you were casting a movie and looking for the most slippery, low-rent, low-class, yahoo type to play the cliche used car salesman, McAuliffe would be the guy you'd pick.

Hmm. Well, some quick googling shows there probably are around 170 million registered voters in the US, more or less. So the Dems have a massive database that has ALL registered voters in it.

Interesting.

How do you think they generated the "butterfly ballot" bogus controversy so fast? They had a list of people to contact that would say what the Democrats told them.

The database is probably another VIN GUPTA job....

I saw a picture of a door mat that had hillary's ugly face on it with instructions to "please wipe feet liberally". Unfortunately, I could not find a source for purchase. I'd love one of those for my doorway.

Isn't this the same bunch who has played "ring around the rosie" with the a.m. talking reds on morning shows about "how disgraceful that the president has the utter gall to make a joke about the weapons of mass destruction...." (GEE.... Pres. Bush makes a joke IN the oval office, their pick made a joke OF it on a daily basis).

ANYWAY, same bunch, right???? It's disgraceful for Mr. Bush to show some self-deprecating humor in a news clip.... but just FINE to step on the face of a sitting president while showing off their latest toys?

Damn them!!! I don't even get the choice (as mad as I have been over several rino-like decisions) to refuse to vote in this election. Obviously a failure to vote this time around is giving these sniveling, self-serving jerk-offs a chance to think they have tacit approval to continue to carry us down the drain at warp speed. How did we get to the point where these jokers are taken seriously on ANY level, up to and most importantly including allegiance to the nation they live in. If they can't have any respect for the TRADITION....could they PLEASE get some come-uppance for having no respect for AMERICANS!!!!
