Lipstick on a pig.

Lipstick? Hell, they like to pretend that the pig is Miss America.

In the latest, Bush is touting a plan to crack down on contract fraud - it will force companies to report abuse of taxpayers money. The kicker? It doesn't apply to Iraq.

"The proposed rules, which are in the final approval stages, specifically exempt "contracts to be performed outside the United States," according to a notice published last month in the Federal Register.

Critics including the watchdog group Taxpayers Against Fraud said the overseas exemption raises suspicions.

"I hate to sound cynical, but what lobbyist working for a contractor in Iraq wanted this get-out-of-jail card?" asked Patrick Burns, spokesman for the government watchdog group.

So the billions of dollars that have disappeared? FORGET THEM, they don't count. We're in debt up to our eyebrows, Bush's cronies have "lost" billions, and George W. has no interest in finding out where it is. If Contract Fraud occurs in Iraq - it didn't happen, and won't be reported. Thanks to Bush.

Now - why do you think he wouldn't want contract fraud in Iraq to be reported?
