Billionaires for Bush: 'For Too Long We've Ruled the World from Behind Closed Limousine Doors'

From the April 13 issue of The Indypendent, by Christian Roselund – At the March 20 anti-war protest in Manhattan the crowd was thick at the corner of 34th St. and 6th Ave. Marchers carrying large signs made their way through metal barricades that police were beginning to set up. Amid all of this, about 40 people decked out in suits and ties, and evening gowns and rhinestone tiaras displayed signs reading, “Casualties are Just Formalities” and “Blood for Oil.”

They were not well-dressed counter-protesters, but Billionaires for Bush, a street theater group that lampoons the power and big money behind Bush, Jr.

At a recent Tuesday night meeting in the Billionaires’ lower Manhattan office, more than 50 people packed the room, half of them in costume. They included graphic artists, actors, computer industry and public relations employees, and one filmmaker/trapeze artist.

“I’m amazed at the amount of energy people are willing to share - they believe our message,” said Pam Perd, the PR director for Billionaires.

Hal E. Burton, a self-described “policy wonk,” said, “the goal is to decide what our most effective [ideas] are and get them out into the public discourse.” Burton explained that the purpose of Billionaires is “to expose the capture of the government by corporations. We’re focusing on investment and return.”

The Billionaires website states, “Bush's media team has managed to construct him as a folksy everyday guy whose tax cuts are good for all Americans. It is this image that the Billionaires campaign is aiming to upend.”

And the message is getting out.

All of us in Saudi Arabia are shocked to read
of your belittling of President Bush. We know
him to be a great friend of our beloved sheiks...
kind of a sheiksa, if you'll pardon the term.
Without Bush, all those terrorists we trained
might still be here, interfering with our
multi-billion dollar oil business; now they're
in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Shame on you.

Sincerely, Sheik Budi al Bushi
