… as to what dear leader and his cabal are doing, be assured that I am indeed. While I am very glad that the dems now in congress want to make changes and try to turn this wayward ship around, there is so much more that needs to be done. The lower, ego-driven side of me wants to go out in the street and scream I FUCKING TOLD YOU SO!! to all those who didn’t see this shit coming down back in 2004 and voted for him. (But I won’t be cause I’m all love and light and whatnot.) We tried and tried to show you guys what was going on but apparently it had to be played out so that ALL could see with their own eyes the horror this person (and those who are with him because he’s not doing this alone) has brought to our country.
I wasn’t paying attention much back in the late 90’s when Clinton was impeached for the Lewinsky affair and I only remember it tangentially. But it seems to me his offense harmed this country not at all. Should he have lied about it? No. Duh. Impeachable? Puhlease. So, it amazes me totally that now, with all we KNOW Bush et al has done to harm this country in so many ways, impeachment has barely been mentioned. Taking the country to war under totally false pretenses, killing over 3000 American soldiers and untold Iraqis – no grounds for impeachment. Lying about a blow job? Oh yes! So terribly impeachable. I don’t fucking get it. I really don’t.
In a thread over on Table Talk someone wrote this:
I keep being amazed that he has destroyed our standing within the global community, caused a staggering national debt, waged war without just cause, squandered the lives of over 3000 of our young men and women and ruined the lives of tens of thousands more, denied climate change until he absolutely had to acknowledge its existence, and his approval rating is not in the single digits. People are not rioting in the street, demanding his immediate ousting. The media is not treating this as an immediate national crisis. As a nation, we are being way too fucking polite about
Yes, way too fucking polite for sure. I get so aggravated that there are still some who don’t understand ALL the implications of things this idiot has done to our constitution. GAH! Y’all are not seeing the big picture here. They fear monger to keep us under control. So we place all our trust in them and they alone will keep us safe from terrorists. How can you not see what they are doing? I am not politically savvy or astute but even *I* can see what is going on. And it breaks my heart. Truly it does. This man and his administration must be removed from any kind of power over this country and soon or we will surely (continue) to pay for it. Was Saddam worth 3000 of our soldier’s lives? Are we better off today for going into Iraq? What was the reason we did that in the first place?
As Keith Olbermann so eloquently stated:
He has told us the war is necessary…Because Saddam was a threat; Because of 9/11; Osama bin Laden; al Qaeda; Because of terrorism in general; To liberate Iraq; To spread freedom; To spread democracy; To keep the oil out of the hands of terrorist-controlled states; Because this was a guy who tried to kill his dad.
In pushing for and prosecuting this war, he passed on chances to get Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, Muqtada al-Sadr, Osama bin Laden.
He sent in fewer troops than recommended. He disbanded the Iraqi Army, and “de-Baathified” the government. He short-changed Iraqi training.
He did not plan for widespread looting, nor the explosion of sectarian violence.
He sent in troops without life-saving equipment.
Gave jobs to foreign contractors, not the Iraqis.
Staffed US positions there, based on partisanship, not professionalism.
We learned that “America had prevailed”, “Mission Accomplished”, the resistance was in its “last throes”.
He has said more troops were not necessary, and more troops are necessary, and that it’s up to the generals, and removed some of the generals who said more troops would be necessary.
He told us of turning points: The fall of Baghdad, the death of Uday and Qusay, the capture of Saddam, a provisional government,the trial of Saddam, a charter, a constitution, an Iraqi government, ¤elections, purple fingers, a new government, the death of Saddam.
We would be greeted as liberators, with flowers.
As they stood up–we would stand down, we would stay the course, we were never ‘stay the course’,
The enemy was al Qaeda, was foreigners, terrorists, Baathists.
The war would pay for itself, it would cost 1-point-7 billion dollars, 100 billion, 400 billion, half a trillion dollars.
And after all of that, today it is his credibility versus that of generals, diplomats, allies, Republicans, Democrats, the Iraq Study Group, past presidents, voters last November, and the majority of the American people.
What is it going to take? If a blowjob is the key, sign me up now. I’m willing to do it for the good of my country.
