Mainstream Media Sources Confirm Bush-Rice Affair. The Wayne Madsen Report has more on the alleged affair between George W. Bush and Condoleeza Rice:
bq. A White House source, speaking on background, vehemently denied to WMR that there are marital problems between President Bush and First Lady Laura Bush over a reported extramarital affair between Mr. Bush and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. However, two mainstream media sources [my emphasis] have confirmed that their sources also have reported an ongoing affair between Mr. Bush and Rice.
The mainstream media is hamstrung in reporting stories about Bush’s personal life. For example, in 2001, the media highlighted Bush’s comments about his passing out from choking on a pretzel while watching a football game in the White House. In reality, Bush, who claims he gave up drinking years ago, passed out from being inebriated. Washington’s movers and shakers knew the story about Bush’s drinking but the media studiously avoided it.
I have a feeling that this story is going to break into the mainstream media some time before the fall elections. Then the illusion that President Bush, despite his many failings which even Bush supporters grudgingly acknowledge, is a “good, Christian man” will be shattered. — Wayne Madsen Report [Police State USA]
It really says something about Christians that ordering the deaths of tens of thousands, the torture of hundred or thousands more, and the destruction of an entire country is just fine and dandy, but having an affair would suddenly mean that he’s not a “good, Christian man.”
