Pomp and applause lines didn't save you after the SOTU.


Mr. President,
Your track record has shown that you are always more interested in political solutions instead of providing real workable strategies with sufficient structure to ensure some measure of success.

The State of The Union Speech was another good example of life in your executive branch bubble which is impenetrable to the will of the people and Congress.

It took you a while to get to Iraq, but when you did you again seemed content with merely providing the perception of providing a different course of action in Iraq hoping no one will know the difference. Sadly the country is dying of thirst for leadership, and all you are able to offer us is bloody sand.

The clock is ticking; your only real goal now is to establish some type of legacy despite your national and foreign policy fiascos.
You will no doubt look for any type of reason to shift the blame onto the Democrats or Maliki for the Iraq disaster just like you falsely blames the bombing of the Shite mosque for all the civil war in Iraq, during your speech.

Your wish for a workable immigration policy appears to be your attempt at a “Lyndon Johnson moment.” President Johnson initiated and signed civil rights legislation which reclaimed some of his stature on the national stage after his Vietnam war policies failed so miserably.

President Johnson reportedly said that after he passed his sweeping civil rights reforms it would be a long time before a Democrat would carry the south again, but he did it anyway. I do not find any such noble motives behind your apparent willingness to help resolve the immigration issue.

Many Republicans are no doubt incredulous that you would imperil the Republican party with such a polarizing issue such as immigration reform, but time is running out for you to claim some shred of accomplishment even if it means some Republicans are left swinging in the wind in 2008.

This speech will not impress many people, Americans are wising up, and they are beyond your normal smoke and mirror diversions and they are looking to Congress to do something about it. This Congress will be a significant challenge for you. It will be interesting to see how far you will push the Democrats before they threaten to use the impeachment card.

You might want to amend your New Years resolutions, to include some kind of mental health break because the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.

The people of this nation are certainly looking for a different result. If you continues to refuse to change your style of promoting your subjectivity of issues and etherial startegies over substance, the hunger for a hero to take you on, will continue to grow.

Happy New Year junior, the 3000th soldier died before the ball dropped.

Mr. President,

More Americans have died this month, about 110, than in any month since November 2004. Ironically it was a boy from your home state, Spc. Dustin R. Donica, 22, of Spring, who was killed Thursday by small arms fire in Baghdad, who became your 3000th American death. The Defense Department said Sunday, making him the 3000th to die.

To mark or mourn this grim milestone, here is an
E&P summary, based on official sources and the Iraq Coaliton Casualty Count web site, of the death tally so far.

The U.S. deaths since Bush said "Bring them on": 2,793
Coalition deaths since first January 2005 Iraqi election: 1,653
Total wounded: over 22,000
Wounded this year: over 5,600
Estimate of Iraqi deaths since killing of Zarqawi in June 2006: 13,588
The total Iraqi deaths since invasion: 100,000 to 600,000.

This new year week also marks the death of two of Rummy’s one-time allies, President Ford and Saddam Hussein.


Bob Woodward recently
provided us with Ford’s serious misgivings on what you and his proteges have done in Iraq. In July 2004 President Ford told Woodward, that he "very strongly" disagreed” withyour justifications for invading Iraq and said he would have pushed alternatives, such as sanctions, much more vigorously and that the Iraq war was not justified.

Ironically, it was President Ford who unwittingly boosted the careers of people who initiated the terrible chain of events we face in Iraq today.

Back in 1975, President Ford promoted Donald Rumsfield from Chief of Staff to be the Secretary of Defense. He filled the vacant Chief of Staff position with Rummy’s Deputy Chief of Staff, Dick Cheney. Together Rummy and “Dead-eye Dick” would become Bush’s “Terrible Twins of Terror.”

On December 19-20, 1983 President Ronald Reagan dispatched Rumsfield, who by then became his Middle East envoy to Baghdad, with a message that Washington was willing to resume diplomatic relations.
page13_blog_entry0_2

Rumsfeld purchased hardware from American firms, with backing from the White House to sell to Iraq. The buying frenzy began immediately after Iraq was removed from the list of alleged sponsors of terrorism in 1982. According to a February 13, 1991 Los Angeles Times article: The first thing Saddam received was 45 Bell 214ST helicopters worth some $200 million.

When you invaded Iraq accusing him of having weapons of mass destruction, the joke in Washington was, “We know Saddam has WMD we still have the receipts.”

Later on when Rumsfield wanted the 1988 presidential nomination he listed one of his accomplishments as
helping to “reopen U.S. relations with Iraq.” without mentioning that this happened when, Iraq was using chemical weapons.


Rumsfeld later told The New York Times. “It struck us as useful to have a relationship, given that we were interested in solving the Mideast problems.”
Rummy was not a trusted figure back then either so he
gave up his bid for president on April 1987 and formally endorsed Sen. Robert J. Dole

People have fanaticized about going back in time to change things for the better; if only Stalin, Mao Tse Tung, Ho Chi Ming, Pol Pot, Pinochet, Hitler, Saddam Heussein, and other tyrants could have been eliminated, the world would be a better place today.

One can only wonder what would have happened if Gerald Ford only knew about the thousands of lives destroyed and the significantly increased terror threat to millions of others that his Terrible Twins would bring to the world?

I was struck by Cheney's
speech at Gerald Ford's state funeral. He hailed Ford's decision to pardon Nixon and help the nation heal after Nixon's terrible presidency. Is he setting himself up to be pardoned if he is impeached?

p.s. Perhaps that tornado that made you run for your armored limousine on the same day Saddam was hung is an omen that Allah is sending you a message?. Nah! It just points to the other disaster you will be remembered for; your purposeful activities to modify scientific reports which repudiated global warming.

What ARE your New Year's resolutions anyway?


Mr. President,
I guess neither seeking psychiatric help nor changing your management style was on your list of New Year’s resolutions.
Your much-touted “listening tour” was heralded throughout the holidays, but it sadly ended up with a cartoon figurine of three Bush-faced monkeys.
One Bush monkey has its hands over its ears with the caption “Hear No New Plan.”
The second Bush monkey has its hands on its head with the caption, “Know No New Plan.”
And the third Bush monkey has its hands over its mouth with the caption, saying, “Speak No New Plan.”

As part of your grand plan you have decided to continue your relentless purge of naysayers from your administration under the guise of establishing a broad
revamping of your new Iraq team. So it is out with Gen. George W. Casey Jr. and Gen. John P. Abizaid, both of whom have publicly expressed severe doubts about your “surge” option in Iraq.

You have laid your royal sword on the shoulder of Lt. Gen. David H. Petraeus and proclaimed him as your top American military commander in Iraq to replace Gen. Casey.

page13_blog_entry1_1

Adm. William J. Fallon will replace Gen. John P. Abizaid as the head of the Central Command. Admiral Fallon will manage simultaneous ground wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
page13_blog_entry1_2
Although the departures of both General Casey and General Abizaid were expected; it seems that General Casey’s hasty removal was moved up several months from the original date he had planned.

Both Petraeus and Fallon your newly knighted, and loyal soldiers have been bestowed the honor of carrying on your crusade in Mesopotamia as long as they keep singing from your hymnbook.

Your Mid East military command is not the only area that needed bracing. You and your court of miscreants are anticipating an attack on your imperial monarchy. So a decision had to be made. It was time to fish or cut bait for your legal counsel Harriet Miers. So
Miers unexpectedly quit this week. Miers’ has been a lame duck since October 27, 2005 when she wisely withdrew her nomination for the Supreme Court even after you claimed that she would make one heck of a good Supreme Court justice.
page13_blog_entry1_3

As a frat boy you treated Miers as you treated many others in your fold as fraternity “legacies.” But, her surprise departure shows that although she was a loyal subject she was not good enough to fight off the empowered Democrat– wolves who are looking for your hide. So you have had to troll the nether-world of our nation’s legal sewers for junk-yard dogs to handle the flurry of subpoenas you are anticipating for all your illegal royal decrees.

You seem to want to shuffle the deck chairs on the Titanic, as part of providing the public a suitable show of “real concern” and a “change of plan”
You want Zalmay Khalilzad, Cheney’s buddy and your present ambassador to Iraq to become the new U.S. envoy to the United Nations. John Bolton’s reckless behavior at the UN last year guaranteed his impending rejection by Congress, so now you are gambling that you can get another neocon to take his place.
page13_blog_entry1_4


John Negroponte, the director of national intelligence, will become the number two official at the State Department. Cheney and Rummy’s constant interference along with Condi’s ineptness have left the State department in complete disarray. Negroponte has only had limited success at consolidating the spy agencies he was entrusted with, so what the heck.
page13_blog_entry1_5


Negroponte will be replaced by retired Vice Adm. Michael McConnell and Ryan Crocker, now ambassador to Pakistan, would succeed him in Baghdad.

As your track record has proven, you are always more interested in political solutions instead of real answers. Your moral flexibility has made you an empty shell of a man with no compassion, no empathy, and no soul. So you are content with merely providing the perception of providing “answers,” while the country is dying of thirst for leadership you are happy to only offer them sand.

Face it junior, your only real goal now is to preserve some type of legacy despite your fiascos, so you will probably want to either shift the blame to Democrats or stretch the war out as long as you can until you can pass it on to the next president. This may not curry much favor with many Republicans up for re-election, but hey, you might salve some of those wounds by raising campaign money for them.

America is wising up junior, and they are beyond your normal smoke and mirror diversions. It will be interesting to see how far you will push the Democrats before the threaten Impeachment.

You might want to amend those New Years resolutions junior, to include some kind of mental health break because the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.
