Where is OUR healer, OUR Hero?


Mr. President,
It is natural for many to pay homage to President Ford, but there seems to be a common theme among many of the news stories which depict the late president as a hero of his time.

Ford was a reluctant president who tried to heal a nation even to his own detriment. Gerald Ford was known for his integrity and trustworthiness, just the opposite of Nixon’s traits.

Although Gerald Ford was in an office he didn’t run for or even wanted, he seemed to know that the nation needed to heal from the wounds created by President Nixon, a despotic leader who felt he was above the law and waged a very unjust, unpopular war.

In a very controversial move, President Ford chose to pardon Nixon, because he didn’t want the country to be dragged into a very messy trial. It was a very unpopular thing to do; many people felt Nixon betrayed the nation and the Constitution, so he should pay for it. The uproar of this action cost Ford the presidency, which he lost to a then little-known Jimmy Carter.

Does any of this sound familiar?

Since your sins are worse than anything Nixon ever thought of doing, what kind of savior will we need after you leave?


After you finally leave we will need a hero too. Who can be our “Ford,” our healer?

People are already starting to campaign for ‘08, but are any of them good enough to:

Help our troops in Iraq with a workable plan to bring them home safely?
Pull together a nation divided by years of Karl Rove policies?
Overcome the damage your inaction caused to our planet?
Repair the relationships we once had with our allies before you invaded Iraq?
Overcome your ignorance of foreign affairs which led to growing the leftist influence in South America?
Reverse the Bush-years of American saber rattling which made Iran and North Korea even more dangerous?
Reverse the degradation of the middle-class in America?
Help parents pay for their children to attend college?
Help all Americans get proper medical care?
Finally help with a comprehensive means of rebuilding New Orleans?

It is impossible. The best we can hope for is for someone who will at least try to do what is right for the country and not run the highest office in the land, like a nonstop political campaign.

Don’t get me wrong, we have many heroes in this country; we just don’t have super heroes.

Was that a root canal or an art performance?


Mr. President,
I just took time to catch up on my Tivo’s selections and saw you at the 29th Annual Kennedy Center Honors show; the phrase “pearls before swine” has never been more appropriate.

The honorees included legitimate theater’s great playwright Andrew Lloyd Webber, world famous conductor, Zubin Mehta, Dolly Parton, Motown’s Smokey Robinson, and storyteller to the world Steven Spielberg. Those elite artists and their peers who came and honored them wasted their time and energy before a President who thinks “My Sharona” is cool and ex-alcoholic George Jones, is a great singer.

You looked as though you were either getting a root canal at the dentist or listening to your father's advisors. Face it junior, you can barely spell art, much less appreciate it. Celebrating the arts like empathy and compassion is an alien Bush concept. You are plainly uncomfortable when you try to display any of those sissy behaviors.

You pride yourself on more manly things like invading and bombing Mid Eastern cities built over our oil reserves. Speaking about the Mid east how’s your “plan for victory”/stay the course/promoting democracy/ disarming Saddam of WMD?

History takes some unusual turns junior. Take England for instance.

Once upon a time when England’s power was at it’s peak, it was once said that the sun never set on the English flag. Today it’s safe to say that the sun never sets on a part of the world where the American flag is NOT openly despised.

Thanks largely to your minion’s efforts, America is in the unenviable position of either having created international crisis or fanned the simmering embers of dissent into full-fledged infernos.

That’s a hell of an achievement junior. Please note; hell is the operative word here junior.

Somalia is the latest hot spot where American-trained Ethiopian troops are fighting Somalian Islamists. Some of your notable diplomatic disasters besides Iraq and Afghanistan include the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Lebanon, Nigeria, Darfur, Venezuela, Ecuador, Nicaragua, China, Russia, Ukraine, Uruguay, Iran and North Korea.

Bush frendly nations are rare these days. Countries in your“coalition of the willing ”In Iraq are as scarce as open and unrestricted Republican town meetings.

Despite your obvious personal flaws, mistakes, disasterous appointments, and ineptness in general I take exception with anyone who say you are totally worthless, I have to remind them that you have given us the gift of laughter.

Your public appearances are the mother load for late-night comics, and your buffoonery simplifies the lives of many satirical cartoonists. And look at all those book sales by political insiders who outed your misguided decisions and your inane thought process.

I just heard President Ford died, I guess that means PHOTO OPP time and a badly needed distraction from the public’s attention on just how you were pondering your new way forward in Iraq. The best thing about Ford’s days in office was the creation of the Betty Ford Clinic.

It is ironic how, the death of one bumbling Republican president who gave a reprieve to Nixon, a disgraced Republican president; now grants a temporaty reprieve to perhaps the most disgraceful Republican or Democrat president in history.

Merry Christmas you foolish bastard.


Mr. President,
You have ignored the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, Congress, the UN, the Kyoto agreement, the Geneva convention, Nuclear disarmament treaties, our generals, the Pentagon, the Iraq Study Group, your father’s advisors, and even the will of the people; so who is left? Perhaps the Gay-haters, gun-lovers, pro-lifers, anti flag-burners, and racists in general still support you, but can they really rewrite enough history to make you look good?

Just who is writing your legacy? Who are these history professors you are placating to? Are they sitting in some dusty university basement? Are they as disconnected from reality as you are? Are you counting on the same people who have edited or withheld many embarrassing reports from the public?

Your attempts at hiding all the bad news didn’t help much with the mid terms; what makes you think you can rewrite the results of all those disastrous national and international policy decisions you have made during your time in the west wing?

Are you encouraged that republican media masters could boost Ronald Reagan’s reputation and downplay the thousands of murders he helped cause in Nicaragua, his Iran contra affair and his refusal to do anything about the AIDS epidemic in America, because he considered it a “Gay disease?”

For every leader who hoped that their legacy will prove them right, there are many other egomaniacs who have been chastised by reality.

Yugoslavia’s Marshal Tito, Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Richard Nixon, Cambodia’s Pol Pot Pinchot,
Nikita Kruschev, Serbia’s Slobodan Milosovek, and Japan’s Hirohito, who okayed the attack of Pearl Harbor and personally ratified the proposition of his army to remove the constraints of international law on the treatment of Chinese prisoners, were all resolute men who strongly believed that history will vindicate them.


It seems as though you are just “faking it,” flying by the seat of your pants. Firing Rummy was just the latest example of this. If you would have released him before the elections, the Republicans could have saved the Senate and some of the House.

Cheney called Rummy the greatest Secretary of Defense the country had ever known right after you fired him. So either Cheney is lying, or you are a fool to remove such a wonderful cabinet official.

You can’t even point to advancing any single domestic policy. In fact, the country, and the citizens are in worse shape than ever. Don’t go into New Orleans unless you want to see just how much your recovery efforts suck. If you can’t fix an American city how much hope can the Iraqis have.

So thanks to you it will be a black Christmas for millions of people across the world. The mideast is a firestorm, North Korea, Iran, China, and Russia are all doing what they want without much concern about what America thinks. Even small countries like Uruguay and Venezuela have defied you openly. Your economic policies have created more billionaires while simultaneously making more homeless and poor. Foreclosures are at an all time high, and violence in America is rising every year as law enforcement is diverted to buying gas masks for town officials in Iowa, or following up on anti-war groups and grandmothers who may carry clear liquids on a plane.

Your father must be so proud of you; it’s no wonder he cried at Jeb’s party when he realized just how his dreams for Jeb have been shattered by your incompetence.

So, for all the impoverished Americans, the legless, armless veterans, the families of grieving Iraqi and American soldiers’ families, for all the people who are living their last days in their homes this year, Merry Christmas President Bush. I hope you are proud of your accomplishments.

Have you started drinking again?


Mr. President,
You were prophetic when you said you would “stay the course,” even if only Laura and Barney were the only ones who supported you, because your circle of “yes” men is quickly shrinking.

Your only hope to save your so-called legacy is to help elect a Republican president in 08’ who can pardon your offenses.

You have led such a sheltered life as a rich spoiled frat boy it is easy to understand how you grew up with such a warped sense of morality.

Life is easy in the Bush clan when your daddy is always there to help you after you screw up. The Iraq Study Group is just another example of daddy’s habit of bailing you out. It was a good show but utterly worthless.

Common sense has little effect on your decisions I trust you will turn down any of your dad’s efforts which might show you as weak.

I heard you pushed back your speech to Americans on Iraq I guess you need the extra time to shop around for people to agree with you regardless of their credibility or knowledge on Iraq.

It is the same approach you have used to justify your position on global warming, stem cell research, and every screwy decision you have made for the last five years including your invasion of Iraq. You cherry pick information and quote so-called experts that agree with you to justify your actions. Somehow you have deluded yourself into believing your own propaganda. You will stall your reaction to the Iraq Study Group until you find enough differing opinions so you can continue with your failed policy.

You wasted thousands of American and Iraqi lives. Shedding young American’s blood just begets shedding more blood to justify their deaths. War takes on a life of its own; as soldiers fight on for each other as they have been trained. It is not fair, but there is nothing fair in your world as you seek a political answer to avoid impeachment and insure a positive legacy rather than doing what is right for America and the region.

This is just a small hiccup as far as you are concerned. Nothing matters as long as you believe history will bear you out as.

Can I suggest a therapist? Because you are delusional and, you don’t care how many people die or how average Americans will suffer because of your sociopathic actions.

Even your professed ally, Pakistan is supporting the Taliban in Afghanistan as attacks against American troops grow and today, Saudi Arabia has voiced financial support for Iraqi Sunnis if you withdraw any support for them because they know the Shiites have Iran’s support already and the Saudis cannot afford to have Sunnis left to be slaughtered.

Your comparison to Truman is as laughable as any of the late night comic’s skits about you. Indeed, you have become a walking cartoon, the mother load far any aspiring comic.

There is a chance that in the long run, your disastrous presidency will turn out to be good for American democracy as long as it can survive the immediate and midterm backlash from people within the nation and from countries all around the world, because you have caused millions of apathetic Americans to realize just what happen when they don’t pay attention and allow a moral deviant to become president.

I just pray that we do not give up on our democracy as we are assailed through various economic and terrorist attacks resulting from your murderous foreign policy.

Thank you again for taking the time to write.

I can't take any pleasure from your downfall.

Mr. President,
I would love to take time to feel smug for writing about your disastrous presidency these last five years, which the public is finally learning about from the mass media, but I can’t.

I can’t feel good about the thousands of people who have died and the thousands more who were maimed physically and emotionally, by your hand.

I can’t feel good for the huge debt you incurred jeopardizing the future well being of our children.


I can’t feel good about the division of our nation you and Karl Rove caused for selfish needs and for demanding unprecedented and unconstitutional executive powers to sustain republican governance.

I can't feel good about watching our Constitution and the Bill of Rights become just another set of redacted documents.

I can’t feel good about adversely affecting the health of Americas and butchering our nation’s health care system to favor pharmaceutical companies.

I can’t feel good about the deterioration of our air and water which has negatively affected the health of thousands of people through your toadie support of any industry who needs to pollute our planet to maximize profits.

I can’t feel good about the dreadful ramifications of your failed foreign policy, which has made America and the word “democracy” an anathema to civil society.

I can’t feel good about the firestorm you created in the mideast where our allies are now running for cover hoping to survive. Lebanon, Palestine, as well as Iran has made life in Israel much more dangerous. Which ironically had much to do to support your ill-conceived invasion of Iraq.

I can’t feel good about the Katrina victims who were ignored until the public outcry finally penetrated your self-imposed bubble and the botched recovery effort afterwards.

I can’t feel good about how long it has taken people to finally see you have no clothes; just folksy talk and a stubborn streak which shuts out reasoned discussion and demonizes anyone who questions your actions.

Instead of rejoicing the democratic win in both houses of Congress and vindication for wring about each disaster you caused; I feel am at a wake, where America has begun to understand just how bad a president and how detrimental you have been to our nation. It’s not that you are a liar; you are an incompetent liar with the same lack of compassion as the man who wielded the ax at public beheadings.


Our country’s populace has reached that stage of grief where the death of their illusions on your presidency and American’s hopes for a safer life in our country have come out of denial and reached the grief stage of acceptance.

Guilt and anger will soon begin for many of your ex-followers. The betrayal and anger are blooming in every city, village, and town across our country.

Have you noticed that it is usually right-wing nuts who evoke violence? The American terrorist attack of the Oklahoma federal building, and recent mailings of suspicious white powder to President Clinton and Keith Obermann are just a few examples of right-wing nuts who are prone to violence, when they feel they have been betrayed.


The failure and down turn of your presidency has begun and firing Rummy is just the beginning. Now Bolton bites the dust, which is no surprise, after his poor performance, and obstinate behavior at the UN; thus, he goes down in history as yet another unmitigated Bush-failure.

I was just as unsurprised at your father’s efforts to help bail you out once again and volunteered James Baker to head a committee to find a way out of Iraq. Imagine that, an outside group was brought in to find some solutions to your botched war. Interestingly your own internal study group is studying options as well.

I would like to believe you have learned your lesson, but your history does not have any examples of bending to the will of others despite how terribly wrong you are.

You don’t seem to care whom you take down with you or how many more people must die, so why should I feel anything but sadness and pity for our country; at least while you are in office anyway.

Our Arab allies are scrambling for cover as the mideast is on the brink of a chaos that threatens to engulf friend and foe alike in the region, destabilizing the governments of entire area and reinforcing Iran’s influence for years to come.

In the weeks to come, I am sure I will hear more reasons to vindicate people like myself before their conservative friends and relatives but I will take no joy in it, I am in too much shock over the tremendous damage you have done to our country and our world.
