The Ostroy Report

The Ostroy Report is a fresh, aggressive voice for Democrats and a watchdog of the GOP/Tea Party. We support President Obama and the Democratic agenda and seek to preserve the Senate majority while taking back the House. But we're also not afraid to criticize the left when necessary.

Who Wears the Pants in this White House?


In the wake of the now-infamous Dick Cheney Birdshot Incident, it's beginning to look as though King George is really the prince in this monarchy, and Cheney is king. The veep's defiant silence is taking its toll on the president. Bush seems powerless. Embarrassed. The boss whose employee walks all over him. How else can you explain the near 48-hours it took King Dick to alert Bush to Saturday's accidental shooting of his 78-year-old hunting partner? How else do you explain why, almost four days later, Dead-Eye Dick still has yet to go before the press and the American public to explain the incident? You would think Bush would've compelled him to do so by now. Perhaps. But the truth is, Cheney doesn't give a rat's ass. About Bush, about the presidency, about the public. He marches to the beat of his own drummer. Always has, always will. And all this joking over the past five years about Cheney being the real president, well, it's clearly no joke. We're witnessing it firsthand right now as The Birdshot Incident unfolds. The most powerful vice president in the history of the United States has basically just told everyone, including the president, to fuck off.

It's time for the president to send the veep back to Wyoming. Cheney's blind ambition and duplicitous war-mongering has caused tens of thousands of deaths in Iraq. And now his bizarre actions damn near killed someone here at home. He's lied, and he's authorized leaks of classified data in a revenge act against a political foe. He's a walking time bomb.

    Everything Bush and Cheney touch turns bad.

    There are kool-aid drinking relatives that I can't even talk to because of them. Talk about uniters!

    Cheney better start praying that the guy doesn't die or else he will have more than political problems to deal with.

    Cheney is a Texan. He only claimed to be from Wyoming so that the Cheney-Bush Texas-Oil Junta could usurp power in 2000.

    I heard on the radio today there were some reports of beer drinking at the famous shooting site heard on CNN. I might be wearing my tinfoil hat here but is Whittington still alive or did Cheney kill him and they are waiting for some unrelated "cause of death" a few days later to absolve dicky of the blame?

    It's alot worse than anyone in the media is saying. At least four Bush biographers have committed suicide, a statistical impossibility.

    Harry Whittington was not only involved in the FUNERALGATE cover-up in Texas, which had then Governor Bush's Chief of Staff, Joe Allbaugh (appointed after the 2000 election to head FEMA bringing Michael Brown from Edmond, OK. with him) and Attorney General John Cornyn intervening for SCI, Service Corporation Inc. home to not only key Iran-Contra assets (remember that 18 planners of Iran-Contra have been resurrected to Bush's administration including the indicted John Poindexter and Elliot Abrams) , but SCI is also home to Al Gore's former campaign manager, Tony Coelho, a leading offender in the House Post Office scandal (THIS AIN'T REPUBLICAN OR DEMOCRAT...IT PERVASIVE...REMEMBER THAT IRAN CONTRA NEEDED CLINTON'S APPROVAL TO USE BARRY SEAL'S AIRPORT AT MENA, ARKANSAS). SCI was manipulating the funeral industry and has a history in Florida and Texas of dispicable practices. Whittington was also a member of the Texas Department of Correction's Board whose healthcare program had about a $16,000,000 dispute. Prisoner healthcare was split between UT and Texas Tech Medical Schools in Galveston and Lubbock. Ambassasor to Switzerland, land of secret bank accounts, is Pam Willeford, whose husband was appointed to the Dept of Correction's health care commmittee overseeing prison medicine in May, 2000.

    So you can see the problem.

    The sheriff of Kenedy County deferred to his predecessor, former Sheriff Medellin who lives on Ambassador Armstrong's ranch. Kenedy County like most of the counties in the Nueces Strip, between the Nueces River and Rio Grande, are a moral no man's land. People get very rich from what crosses the grasslands....and it ain't all cattle. It was in Whittington's Goliad County (he has a ranch there on I-35 where his daughter is married to one of the County Constables. The Minute Men recently assembled because of complaints by ranchers that the county is a launch site for smuggling illegal aliens north to Houston up the famous Corridor 69 created by GATT/NAFTA).

    Kenedy County is home to the Sarita Kenedy Foundation which has been a focal point of bitter disputes and dark intrigue. The foundation was in the news not long ago when Texas Catholic Bishops were angry over the use of Foundation funds, which were susposed to spread around the state, but were horded by the Bishop of Corpus Christi, Rene Gracida, a former USN aviator who delivered the benediction at the Thursday night of the 2004 Republican National convention when Zell Miller told Chris Matthews on HARDBALL that he'd like to shoot him..."I wish I lived in the time when we still had duels."

    Hey, Zell. WE DO! You go hunting with Cheney next time!
