Bush quietly signs his own Walking Papers

WASHINGTON - Without fanfare, President Bush Friday signed into law a bill containing nearly $140 billion in corporate tax cuts denounced by critics on both sides of the aisle as a giveaway to special interests.

Bush signed the measure into law aboard Air Force One en route to a campaign rally in Pennsylvania, forgoing a public signing ceremony that would have attracted attention to the tax cuts less than two weeks before Election Day. The bill has been heavily criticized by both Democratic presidential rival John Kerry and Republican Sen. John McCain, among others.

The White House had marked the signing of Bush's other major tax bills with lavish public ceremonies. This one was marked with a one-paragraph statement by the press secretary.

Asked why there was no signing ceremony for the corporate tax bill, White House spokeswoman Claire Buchan said: "There are a variety of ways the president signs legislation."

Yeah, sometimes "G. W." sometimes "George W." sometimes no W at all. But he always puts in a a hefty dose of greed and corruption in everything he signs.
Don't let this go quietly. Tell everyone!
