Now, for a few years now, I've had this Google alert for the words "Bush Abramoff (and) lawsuit"... It's a nice little feature that sends endless stories each week to my email regarding Boy King's loving and (at this point) undeniable relationship with disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff.
So, today, I get a juicy one from the Miami Herald. You only get the first few lines in your e-mail along with a link. It said the following:
White House-Abramoff ties confirmed
MiamiHerald.com - Miami,FL,USA
The House report obtained photos of Abramoff meeting President Bush on six occasions. Bush has said he doesn't remember Abramoff, and the White House has ...
However, when you click the link on the Miami Herald site, the story is curiously down. A google news search of those words brings back almost nothing. Hopefully, the Herald is merely editing the story properly and will post it soon.
But, I did find this from a month ago:
Abramoff Met Bush at Least 6 Times, House Panel Confirms
WASHINGTON - Convicted superlobbyist Jack Abramoff influenced White House actions while his firm wooed administration officials over expensive meals and plied them with box tickets to sporting events, according to a House of Representatives committee report released Monday.
The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform said Monday that it had received new White House documents and testimony that confirmed 80 White House contacts with Abramoff and uncovered 70 others despite White House assertions that Abramoff had vastly overblown his administration connections. Abramoff, who’s cooperating with federal prosecutors after pleading guilty in an expanding corruption investigation, previously reported that his former firm had more than 400 contacts with White House officials.
The House report obtained photos of Abramoff meeting President Bush on six occasions, including political receptions. Bush has said he doesn’t remember Abramoff, and the White House has refused to release the photos. The committee posted low-quality versions of them on its Web site Monday after receiving them from the White House.
“The new documents and testimony show that Mr. Abramoff had personal contact with President Bush, that high-level White House officials held Mr. Abramoff and his associates in high regard and solicited recommendations from Mr. Abramoff on policy matters,” the committee said.
The committee added, however, that it had “obtained no evidence” that Abramoff lobbied the president directly.
"I've never met the man.... I don't know him."
Oh Boy King. You are one special little guy, aren't you?

Out of curiousity how many responses do you get from the Google Alerts on Obama/Ayers from credible sources.. just googled it and it looks like a lot of half baked rightie sources. not much to it.
Come on GJ ... why would democratic and liberal websites mention Obama's ties to felons, terrorists & radicals of his past ... be serious ... that would be like right leaning sites picking on Bush everday ... it doesn't happen.
