Disappointing, but not unexpected

Only George W. Bush would use Veterans Day to promote his agenda of mass murder and deception. A miserable fucking liar who thinks the country is full of idiots who believe him. Someone should clue the chimp in. The majority of Americans (finally) "get it". That we were lied to. But asshole stands in front of the Unites States anyway, on Veterans Day, in a futile attempt to hold back the shit storm that he will eventually drown in, employing the same tactics that he always employs.

Swift-boat the messenger.

From chimpys Veterans Day speech

"While it's perfectly legitimate to criticize my decision or the conduct of the war, it is deeply irresponsible to rewrite the history of how that war began. (Applause.) Some Democrats and anti-war critics are now claiming we manipulated the intelligence and misled the American people about why we went to war. These critics are fully aware that a bipartisan Senate investigation found no evidence of political pressure to change the intelligence community's judgments related to Iraq's weapons programs. "
Once again, the usual tactic is employed. Go after the messenger. From Wilson to the DSM to the GOP Senate and house turning a blind eye to indictments and investigations within the White House, to Reid shutting down the Senate to force action, one thing remains constant.

George W. Bush has done everything possible to erect a smokescreen intended to hide the truth.

Yes, there were those who believed the President (I was not amongst them), and why shouldn't they? The notion of cooking intel to force an unnecessary war is the stuff conspiracy theories is made of. To the trusting, but naiive, members of the House and Senate who authorized use of force, they believed their President.

How many of them now say "If I knew now then what I know now".

Bush wanted this war. He wanted it, and he got it. He did the unthinkable, he misled Congress, the Country and the entire world to make his case for war. And war is what we got.

Barack Obama was on TDS. When Jon asked him what he would do to fix things, Obama shot back that Bush drove the bus into the ditch. The first thing he would do? Fire the bus driver.

Which gets us to the point. Bush claims that we who question his actions are attempting to "rewrite history". If Bush was forthcoming with the American people that may be accepted as a possibility. But Bush was not forthcoming. We do not want to rewrite history, we want history to reflect the events that actually took place.

The war will go on. With or without the evil, drunken degenerate who took advantage of the trust of decent human beings, the war will go on.

The war, and the architect of the war, are two different things. The war no longer needs Bush, it is a living, breathing monster that will continue sustaining itself on the death and suffering of innocent people. And George Bush must be held accountable for what he has done.

He didn't mislead the world. The French and Germans didn't fall for it (remember "Old Europe" and all the anti-French hatred?). Nor did the Arab or Muslim world fall for it.
God knows where the American "free press" was. Too scared to say anything against the war frenzy, I suppose, because if they had taken the trouble to cross-check all Bush's claims against the UN weapons inspectors' reports they would have seen that a lot of his urgent fears were selectively plucked from five-year-old UN reports and were then carefully twisted to make them more scary.

What I can't understand is how he got re-elected. Most voters must live in a bubble of self-delusion ... maybe that's why Bush is always babbling on about bringing democracy to the Middle East.

Paul, first I must thank you for presenting yor thoughts in a very dignified way.

I do believe he misled the world. Congress did not share the same information that Bush was priivy to. Bush spoon-fed Congress and the world the information he chose to.

Lets not forget the infamous Downing Street Minutes. There is much to suggest that intel was cooked to bolster the case for war.

The fact that both Houses are under GOP control made this easy to happen.

Shitheads like Powell chose loyalty to party instead of loyalty to country.

Powell knew the truth.

Bush knew there was no Niger yellowcake, but that didn't stop him from saying those notorious 16 words.

And with the GOP turning the other cheek and the White House being as secretive and misleading it sure looks like they have something to hide.

They show themselves as the scumbags they are when Scotty comes out and swiftboads Murtha.

They are acting like men with something to hide.

How Bush got re-elected? Maybe he didn't. The GAO has found serious problems and inconsistancies with the (Diebold) voting machines used in Ohio. Wally O'Dell (Diebold CEO) promised to deliver Ohios Electorated to Bush, and he may have done just that.

Personally, I think Bush stole 2 elections. Doesn't matter. You're right. How in the name of God could anyone give this guy a second term?

Bushs' babbling? He's famous for it. He talks to us as if we were stupid children.

He accepted responsibility for Federal fuckups during Katrina. What does "accepting responsibility" actually mean to this man.

After the Jordan bombings, Jordainian leaders actually did accept responsibility. Many of them resigned. That is what accepting responsibility implies.


Take care
