This morning, I’m reading about a few items in the news over the last week, and wondering, Has the Bush Administration totally lost control of its own agenda?
Item 1: Republican First Lady Laura Bush lectures the Middle East about liberating women from seclusion and suppression.
Item 2: Republicans in the House of Representatives move a bill forward that would prohibit women from filling all but a certain number of particular positions in the U.S. military
Item 3: Military recruitment is down so far that American military missions are threatened and military recruiters have taken to using abusive and dishonest tactics to get young people to join the military
If Republicans are using Laura Bush to lecture people in foreign countries about women’s rights, then how come the Republicans are working so hard to restrict human rights here in America?
If military recruitment is at such low levels, then how come the Republicans want to outlaw 50 percent of the American population from filling certain positions in the military?
Someone call Miss Marple, please, because I just can’t make sense of this mystery.
