BDS Hits Clark County Airwaves

In perhaps the most blatant display of the sheer hatred of George W. Bush I have seen yet, he is now being blamed for the proposed Cowlitz Tribal Casino near Ridgefield, Washington.

The Casino proposal has met with stiff opposition from The Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde, owners of the Spirit Mountain Casino, who claim building the new Casino would “devastate” their own Casino revenues.

Their opposition has sunk to new lows now by playing on the contrived hatred of President Bush by claiming it is he who plans to ruin Clark County by building the Casino, in the following TV commercial currently showing on Clark County cable.

The Grand Ronde bases this blatant misrepresentation upon an environmental impact statement released recently that could clear the way for a Casino.

George Bush has nothing whatsoever to do with the EIS, as would no other President, if they were seated in office.

In a blatant attempt at manipulating the public through the perceived and contrived sheer hatred of President Bush, the Grand Ronde once again sets their target, not based on truth, but on perceptions that backfired when they heavily opposed La Centers Mayor Jim Irish in his last bid for reelection, which he won by a landslide.

Almost comical, as is seen in the commercial is the ending, which calls on viewers to “Tell our leaders to stand up to Bush. Oppose the casino. Time is running out,” then lists 4 Democrats who have no history of siding with President Bush.

With tactics such as this, Ridgefield is sure to enjoy a Casino in the near future.

I guess if you can't get enough opposition on your side any other way, just drag Bush into it any way you can, huh?
