The Bush virus flourishes

Mr President
Congratulations junior, you have almost brought that liberty tree completely down but you had a lot of help.

Your army of "Bush Bureaucratic Bunglers" who have been heedless of good judgement, and executors of your "policy over performance" have stifled almost every government organization to the point of exhaustion.

History tells us that the assignment of political officers to every key department as they did in the old Soviet Union didn't work for them very well, why do you believe it would work for you?

Stalin began the practice of placing loyal political officers, or "zampolit," in every company of soldiers and in every organization of the governments to assure loyalty to Stalin's policies.

Likewise, you have injected your own kind of venom into our government. Bush loyalists have infected every aspect of our government. And just like a malignant virus, it eventually sickens and disables the host organism. If sufficient organs within a body are infected, the entire organism can die.

Our democracy is riddled with the "Bush virus, and it is hurting badly. The republic is slowly dying.


You have effectively wrapped your minions around the government just like one of the species of tree-killing vines found in New England which ironically originated in the Ukraine, an ex-Soviet Block country.

It is a called
Swallow-wort, and it wraps itself around a healthy tree and other vegetation, chokes off the nutrients until the tree finally dies. The plant's dense vines can grow to more than 6 feet in the shade, and the leaves are toxic. It likes the dark, indeed it grows very well in the dark.

It has no natural predators and no insects, mammals, or birds will eat it. It's poisonous to deer, goats and other grazing animals. Monarch butterflies will lay eggs on the plant, but the larvae do not survive.

It has a curious but telling name; The "Dog Strangling" vine. Experts have said they have never seen s worse plant invader in 40 years.
0580009
This deadly vine is an appropriate metaphor for what you have wrought upon our democracy.

Examples of this malignant virus upon our country occasionally sees the light of day.


The disastrous and well-televised response to Katrina was just one example of how ineffective your acolytes really are.

As they squash any government reports which often run contrary to your public views on a matter, sometimes they fail to destroy all the reports as was the recent case with the FCC. When the issue of increasing the number of stations a conglomerate can own before Congress, the response from the FCC was favorable towards increased ownership by a few corporations. Somehow
Barbara Boxer obtained a report and a memo which ordered that all copies of a contrary FCC finding be destroyed.

When the Department can't be completely managed, a rewrite of the mission statement can do the trick, and subsequent budget cuts, as you recently did with NASA. Not only was the NASA mission statement rewritten to exclude any and all Earth studies, but you ordered that all contact and materials given to the media are coordinated through Bush loyalists.
James-E-Hansen-NASA29jan06

World renown scientist James E. Hansen, the director of the agency's Goddard Institute for Space Studies says you tried to stop him from speaking out about his call for a prompt reduction in emissions. Hansen said he would ignore the restrictions that you placed on him to have all media contacts pre-cleared with one of your handlers before hand.



The EPA has long been subjugated to Bushites. After touting that the EPA should relinquish all oversight, stating that the states can do a better job of handling pollution and air standards, you also decided to cut the small $2 million budget they had for their libraries which effectively closed the research libraries to their scientists. Someone might not have been using their calculators because studies have shown that working on the libraries has saved them $7.5 million.


Not content with shelving any discussion about global warming scenarios or other man's involvement in the erosion of the planet, somewhere along the line you even silenced the people at NOAA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. NOAA is the agency responsible for protecting endangered fish, has been silenced when the discussion turned to salmon as well. According to the Washington Post all questions about salmon must be referred to one of three people at headquarters.

Why? Well, a scientific decision, written by experts from NOAA and the Interior Department, said that hydroelectric dams on the Klamath River should either be removed or be rebuilt in a way that allows passage of salmon. There are too many big business interests involved. And business trumps the welfare of salmon or the Indian tribes that depend on them for their welfare. Politically, It is easier to have your political Apparatchik at the agency to squash the information.


It was one thing to squash all talk about Global Warming, but you even got as detailed as cutting off any talk about salmon when it is in reference to the Klamath river.

The Washington office of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration — the agency responsible for protecting endangered salmon, has instructed its representatives and scientists in the West to route media questions about salmon back to headquarters.

Only three persons in the entire agency all of them political appointees — are now authorized to speak of salmon, according to an employee who has been silenced.

The Wall Street Journal broke the story about how you and Karl Rove promised long-time Republican business men in the Klamath river basin they would receive all the water they needed even though there was a water shortage in the area.

You made this promise to those big donors despite the fact that the life of the salmon population in the Klamath River depended on the level of water in the river. And the Indian tribes in the area depended on the salmon.

It didn't take long after you and Rove met with the landowners before the river level was dropped to satisfy your friends. Some 33,000 endangered salmon were killed right after the water was diverted to the basin. National Marine Fisheries scientists altered their findings on the amount of water the salmon required, and claiming it was the ocean currents that produced the largest fish-kill in history.

Paul Bremer's Coalition Provisional Authority, (CPA) folly in Iraq was perhaps the most outrageous use of political cronies and perhaps the costliest.
When Ambassador L. Paul Bremer, III was named Presidential Envoy to Iraq on May 6, 2003, and in this capacity is the Administrator of the Coalition Provisional Authority, he needed a small army of experts in various fields of reconstruction to get Iraq up and running again. So does he select the most experienced or the brightest or people who can speak the language? No, he picks G.O.P. fund-raisers and politically connected young ideologues over much more qualified job applicants who even knew Arabic.
Bremer-Bust
The CPA had the power to enact laws, print currency, collect taxes, deploy police, and spend Iraq's oil revenue. It had more than 1,500 employees in Baghdad at its height, working under America's viceroy in Iraq, L. Paul Bremer, but he never released a public roster of his entire staff.
This was a dream job for bush lovers. They lived in the safety of the Green Zone, they were given millions of dollars to try to accomplish their tasks, they didn't need any experience to get the job, and nothing was said when they failed.
All you had to do was pass Jim O'Beirne's interview. O'Beirne is a former Army officer who is married to prominent conservative commentator Kate O'Beirne. His staff posed blunt questions to candidates like: Did you vote for George W. Bush in 2000? Do you support the way the president is fighting the war on terror? Two people who sought jobs with the U.S. occupation authority said they were even asked their views on Roe v. Wade .

One staffer who worked for the CPA in Iraq put it all in perspective and said, "I'm not here for the Iraqis," one staffer noted to a reporter over lunch. "I'm here for George Bush."

One 24-year-old who had never worked in finance was sent to reopen Baghdad's stock exchange.
The daughter of a prominent neoconservative commentator and a recent graduate from an evangelical university for home-schooled children was tapped to manage Iraq's $13 billion budget, even though they didn't have a background in accounting.
James K. Haveman Jr., who was selected to oversee the rehabilitation of Iraq's health care system. The Iraqi hospitals were bombed out drugs were scarce, doctors were in fear for their lives, people were dying in the corridors; so what does Haverman do?
Haveman didn't like the idea that medical care in Iraq was free. He figured Iraqis should pay a small fee every time they saw a doctor. Burke urged the Health Ministry to mount an anti-smoking campaign, and he assigned an American from the CPA team.
When Haveman left Iraq, Baghdad's hospitals were as decrepit as the day the Americans arrived, and many of the doctors and nurses had fled the country because of safety concerns, lack of equipment and medication to perform their jobs.
Before you call me a nattering nabob of negativism; if something looks like shit and smells like shit I don't have to taste it to call it shit.


p.s. Clnton is getting a lot of good press with his initiatives, while your press sucks. It also makes him look good when he is joined by
your own wife and right-wing businessmen like Rupert Murdoch who joins left-wing actress Barbara Streidsand.
0_62_092006_laurabush_clinton
He is today's version of Jimmy Carter, a uniter not a divider doing good things for the world while you continue to be perceived as the most evil man on the planet.



Clinton is the man out there
saving America's ass. It is not a pretty comparison. Democrats help people while Republicans torture them.

Thank you again for taking the time to write.

If you are on a mission for god; may Allah help us.

Mr. President,
For the sake of our democracy and standing in the world the correct guideline for a United States presidents must be, "The means justify the ends" not "The ends justify the means."  

When you were re-elected you spoke of capital you believed you had. What you spent however was the capital that the United States had. Our country had significant capital and a significant reputation as the gold standard for democracy. I say had because we can't claim the high ground since you became our president.

You were badly mistaken about the capital you had and failed to pass any national programs which garnered any prasie from the American people. Your constant slid in the polls highlight that fact.

I am not going to say you purposely sabotaged America. I believe you thought you were doing the right thing. Your beliefs guided your choice of people you listened to and who, in turn reinforced your beliefs.

The mortal flaws of your presidency probably comes from who you are and how you grew up plus your need to leave a legacy larger than your father's. You were told that to achieve the greatness you sought you had to take the bold moves the neo-cons wanted since the Reagan years. Your chances for success were further degraded by your administration's hatred for discarding anything Clinton had pursued. You not only threw out the baby with the bathwater junior you threw out the whole damn nursery.

Your entire presidency has been run like one long political campaign. In short, your term can be summed up as:


The "ENDS JUSTIFY THE MEANS" Presidency

This weekend, the Pervez Musharraf the President of Pakistan will be on 60 minutes. His interview will show how low you had to stoop. To get countries to join in your folly, you had to either pay or threaten countries to join the so called "Coalition of the Willing."

Today you and the "so-called-rebel" Republican leaders agreed to a "torture light" version of the Geneva Convention. It gave you the right to determine what torture really also means and retroactively absolve any "misdeeds/torture/murder" by our forces in their pursuit of intelligence of questionable value.

You obviously believe it is ok to rewrite the Geneva Convention and bypass human rights doctrines which we were once known for. All you had to do was bully Congress and trash the Geneva Convention," to provide you a legal shield and still allow you to torture suspects as you see fit.

Abu Gharib, Guantanimo, extraordinary rendition, the unlawful abduction extraction to Syria to have him tortured for 10 months, the kidnapping of an Egyptian cleric off the streets in Milan and sent to a foreign country to be "aggressively questioned," are examples of your power to detain, extradite, inflicting pain and kidnap at-will to satisfy your felt need to root out terror heedless of the consequences to our standing in the world, our democratic ideals and future negotiations with foreign countries.

You have consistently lowered environmental standards on CO2 emissions, mercury emissions, arsenic and rocket fuel content in our water supplies, and ignored Global warming, to satisfy business interests. And I won't even mention how you sold access to our national forests to lumber industries.
Trashing the environment is a minor impediment when it comes to satisfying your commitment to industry. Support for American industry always trumps the welfare of the American people.


Your whole time in office you have bypassed Congress wherever you could. The 600+ signing statements you attached to all those laws passed bu Congress states that the laws do not pertain to you if you feel they hinder your definition of executive powers. Your program to do what ever you see fit, supersedes the balance of power the founders established among the three arms of the government and the need to follow the Constitution and the Bill of Rights is more of a guideline instead of a hard rule when it gets in your way.

You allowed Rumsfield to use cluster bombs and depleted uranium in Afghanistan and in Iraq to improve American fire power against insurgents regardless of the collateral damage. Killing a few thousand citizens here and there can't be helped when you are bombing Iraq for the greater good of imposing your form of democracy on a country that didn't ask for it to begin with.

Filling critical positions in every arm of the government with inept, but loyal partisans like Brown in FEMA were important to keep everyone in line with your policies despite any contrary scientific studies or reports. Poor support for Americans who depend on government services is not as important as having someone supporting the company line.

It is also important to keep information of government agency operations is hidden. Your administration has classified more information than any other presidency in history. You even recalled and reclassified 30 year-old records from the Achieves. Transparency of our government operations has been hidden in direct violation to "Sunshine Laws." Congress and the American people's need to know. Transparency is not as important as providing yourself the freedom to do what you what you want to do without anyone looking over your shoulder. Keeping your activities secret is more important than supporting the laws of our country.

There are so many more examples, but I'll stop here.

The success of following your ideology and the rules you consistently follow is as obvious as the:
Bombed out businesses and homes in Palestine and in Iraq,
shape of the American middle-class,
purity of our drinking water,
quality of our air
quality of our health care system
reputation of our country around the world,
recovery efforts after Katrina,
deteriorating health of thousands of World Trade Center workers whom you lied to.
State of nuclear proliferation in the world,
number of dead and wounded soldiers and Iraqi citizens.
Number of new left-wing countries in South America since you took office
Number of new gray hears on your head.

A tortured innocent soul and a safer Iraq under Saddam

Mr. President,
Maher Arar, a Canadian citizen since 1987, worked in Ottawa. His wife Monia Mazigh has a PhD in mathematics. They have two young children.

On September 26, 2002, Maher Arar was returning to Montreal, Canada where he worked as a telecommunications engineer after visiting his family in Tunisia. His flight plan included a change of planes in New York. It was there he was turned over to the FBI because they thought he had a connection to terrorists.

On Oct. 7 or 8, 2002, U.S. officials deported Arar to Syria where he was tortured for 10 months.

All during his ordeal he was never charged with any crime nor was he allowed to speak with his family or a lawyer.

Arar was "interrogated, tortured, held in degrading and inhumane conditions" for 10 months until he finally confessed to spending time in Afghanistan. He was released on October 6, 2003; 375 days after U.S. immigration officials arrested him.

After his release it was proven that Arar was actually working in Canada during the same time frame he was allegedly in Afghanistan. During a television interview Arar said he confessed to being in Afghanistan as they kept insisting, just to make them stop the torture.

Alberto Gonzales was asked whether the department owed him "an apology," after a Canadian government commission concluded that the Syrian-born Arar was tortured for 10 months after being falsely accused of terrorist ties.

"Well, we were not responsible for his removal to Syria," Gonzales replied. "I'm not aware that he was tortured, and I haven't read the commission report."

If you think people are going to believe that whopper maybe you should have him throw the lie that you did not mislead the American public about the reasons for occupying Iraq at the same time.

The "I haven't read-that-particular file," excuse is getting quite a work out; you, Cheney, Rice, Rumsfield, and Snow have all used it several times within the last few weeks, when you have been presented with information that is in direct contradiction to your current statements. The other one I keep hearing from your administrations is "I am not aware of ..."

Here is another report you may claim not to have read.


A U.N. report cites that Iraq deaths are now comparable to Saddam's regime.



"The situation is so bad many people say it is worse than it has been in the times of Saddam Hussein." Over the past two months 6,599 civilians were killed in Iraq, according to a UN report which was just released.


Nowak, an Austrian law professor, was speaking following a UN report which showed that a record number of Iraqi citizens were killed in July and August.


According to today's news in
The Guardian:

"The UN human rights office reported evidence of torture, unlawful detention, the growth of sectarian militias and death squads, and a rise in "honor killings " of women. The increasing incidence of discovery of the bodies of women and teenage girls, shot in the chest rather than in the head, has been attributed to the establishment by both extremist Sunnis and Shias of secretive sharia committees, which locals say carry out killings."



The bottom line is Iraq is not as safe as when Saddam was in power, and you just have to be squirming with that bit of analysis out in the media.


I imagine the messengers will be heavily smeared like Joe Wilson and others who throw dirt on the rosy scenario you have spent the last three years painting for the American public. Good luck with that, because it hasn't been working very well for you so far.


Today's compromise bill on "torture"
vs the "torture light" version by the Republicans is still a questionable deal.


I know the world must be asking why Article 3 of the Geneva convention needed to be modified, since it seemed the world including the United States felt it was a workable document for the last 50 yesrs. It is a puzzlement junior.

Morality is not a major issue in Bush World

Mr. President,
There seems to be a disconnect on who is or is not a terrorist in your mind.
When you capture people in a sweep in Iraq, Afghanistan, you make the blanket assumption that they are all terrorists, until a suitable amount of torture at some undisclosed location, fails to get you any credible intelligence on future attacks on the United States.
It's the George-Bush "Guilty until torture proves they are innocent," system in full bloom.
With such an aggressive action against potential terrorists and as a warrior against terror, how do you justify keeping a known terrorist from justice?

Luis Posada Carriles wanted in Venezuela to face charges that he blew up a Cuban airliner in 1976, killing 73 people, is considered a hero among south Florida's Cuban exile community for his plots to kill Cuban leader Fidel Castro.

Carriles was captured and arrested by Federal agents on May 17, 2005. The Homeland Security Department issued a statement after Posada's arrest that said the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency has 48 hours to rule on his immigration status.

"As a matter of immigration law and policy, ICE does not generally remove people to Cuba, nor does ICE generally remove people to countries believed to be acting on Cuba's behalf," the statement said.

You have that person in who was judged to be a terrorist by a court of law where the defendant was provided with a lawyer and the evidence was presented for everyone to see. He also confessed, sentenced and jailed, and still you refuse to extradite him back to the country's prison from where he escaped. The reason seems to hinge on the fact that the airline he blew up was Cuban and that turning him in would cost you a lot of anti-Castro voters in Miami. The bottom line is that innocent Cuban lives don't matter I guess.


That is just one of the items Chavez was pissed off about when he addressed the U.N.'s General Assembly recently which, by the way applauded for his comments.

I just knew where he was going when he started his speech by called you a devil and that he could still smell the stench of sulfur at the podium.
He made several interesting comments during his speech

The Chavez government announced that resource-rich nations should be wary of you. He seemed eager to start that conflict. According to Rafael Quiroz, an oil industry analyst in Caracas, 85 per cent of the world reserves are in developing countries.

It was also mentioned that certain financial incentives will continue to keep Venezuelan oil flowing to the U.S. But if Chavez does ship its oil to someone else someday, who has the refining capability for Venezuela's type of crude oil it may spike oil prices for a while but Quiroz seems to believe the U.S. will import oil from another source, and it will all even out after a while. Venezuela will have to spend some major dollars on developing shipping and infrastructure to ship their oil from their eastern shores.

Besides the turmoil caused by Mexico's botched election, another nation in South America is also making some news.

Nicaragua is having an election which may signal another South American country going left on you.

Daniel Ortega is the leading candidate in Nicaragua’s presidential race, according to a poll by Borge y Asociados. Right now, 26.8 per cent of respondents would support the Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN) member in this year’s election.


Daniel Ortega Saavedra was the president of Nicaragua from 1985-1990. He was one of the commanders of the Sandanista forces.


Ortega became the head of the ruling junta that ousted Nicaraguan dictator Anastasio Somoza in July 1979. In disputed elections in November 1984, he was elected the president. During the 1980s Ortega led the
Sandinistas in a long and bloody civil war against the U.S.-backed Contras.


Maybe your father told you about Ortega. Surely, you remember the Sandinistas and the
Contra civil war that Reagan supported.

You resurrected and appointed some of the most notorious participants of Reagan's failed Iran-Contra contingency; John Pointdexter, Elliot Abrahms, Otto Reich, and John Negroponte to some very impressive posts in your administration.

During the Iran-Contra war, Reagan spent more than $4 billion on El Salvador in the ’80s, backing brutal regimes and their death squads against the Sandistas. The 12-year civil war left 75,000 Salvadorans dead most of whom were civilians killed by U.S.-supported forces.

During the Iran Contra war, Otto Reich covertly disseminated intelligence leaks to journalists, to trump up a Nicaraguan "threat," and to promote the US-backed Contra guerrillas fighting Nicaragua's government as "freedom fighters," who actually tortured and killed thousands of civilians in Nicaragua. You nominated Otto Reich as Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere affairs, the top post for Latin America.


John M. Pointdexter lost his job as National Security Adviser under Ronald Reagan, and was convicted of conspiracy, lying to Congress, defrauding the government, and destroying evidence in the Iran Contra scandal. But that didn't keep you from appointing him in February 2002 to head the Office of Information Awareness at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).

FOX News reported on November 21st 2002 that Pointdexter was responsible for the "Total Information Awareness Program" which allows the military to spy on the civilian population in the U.S.without search warrants by scanning personal information such as email, credit-card statements, banking and medical records, and travel documents for patterns that might suggest criminal or terrorist activities.
http://www.foxnews.com/story/0%2C2933%2C70992%2C00.html

Your other famous choice was John Negroponte and he is a real piece of work. He was Reagan's ambassador to Honduras from 1981-85, who covered up human rights abuses by the CIA-trained Battalion 316 who massacred scores of Sandinistas and any villagers they thought were friendly with Sandistas.
The Baltimore Sun did a lot of extended reporting on Negroponte's role, bluntly describing Negroponte as "a retired career diplomat who helped conceal from Congress the murder, kidnapping and torture abuses of a CIA-equipped and -trained Honduran military unit.

You first appointed Negroponte be U.S. ambassador to the United Nations in February, 2001, and after substantial opposition from Senate Democrats. The Republican-dominated Congress approved his appointment.
After the 9/11 Commission recommended a position be created to oversee all the security agencies, you appointed Negroponte as the first Director of National Intelligence, He was confirmed on April 21, 2005, by the same Republican-ruled Congress.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Negroponte

All of these examples prove Powell is right about you losing our country's moral high ground when dealing with terrorism.
The only thing he forgot to add was that you lost it long ago.
Decsions like providing safe haven for a known Cuban terrorist while clamoring for a crackdown on anti-american terrorism while torturing suspects caught in the field and appointees such as those mentioned, above speak volumes about your morality.

Chavez is making a lot of sense to many unaligned nations around the world. It may be time to arrange another attempted coup buddy.

New slogans always makes it sound better, but actions still speak louder.

Mr. President,
I love the new title for what you are doing in the Mid East; "The Freedom Agenda," it is not as snazzy as Bill O'Reilley's "The Final Solution, but it has that kind of a ring to it.

If you keep spreading your "freedom agenda", we'll have to build more munitions factories.

Despite your rhetoric for democracy and peace; your use of depleted uranium, cluster bombs, your torture of suspects, your lying to the world about reasons for invading a sovereign nation that did nothing to harm us, have shown the world which side of the "morality fence" you really sit on.

You can't change that impression with one speech at the UN, it’s too late.

You say you want to build a bridge to the Muslim world. While
Cheney tells a group of auto dealers that the world depends on us.

To build a bridge across the chasm you created between the U.S. and the Mid East, one needs a solid foundation to work from.

Regardless of America's potential for a high tech design for the planned superstructure may be, if the supporting base is atop of lies, death, and destruction that you have brought to the region, I wouldn't start drawing up the design quite yet. In fact, it will have to wait for the next President of the United States to undertake. You will be doing good just to keep the chasm from getting any wider.

This is ironic because while you have a major credibility problem, every time you address the U.N. you always say the credibility of UN is at stake if they don't do what you want them to do.

The badly maligned U.N. seems to be the only one who can pull the fat out of the fire for you but it seems to be the only go-to organization that can do anything positive.

The UN is
weary of the need for more and more peace keeping troops around the world. It can't keep up with all the demands.

Although your neo-cons despise the UN and use their emissary and your interim ambassador John Bolton to sabotage U.N. efforts around the world, James Dobbin, a senior foreign policy emissary for both your father and Clinton's administration, has positive views of the world body.

Dobbins, credits the United Nations with providing some of the most inexpensive peacekeeping services in the world, saying it costs $45,000 a year to fund a U.N. peacekeeper, compared with $200,000 to deploy one NATO soldier. The U.N. force is second only to the United States, and it is bigger than NATO and the European Union put together, he said.

But, the force is under pressure and very weary. The UN now fields about 100,000 peace-keeping troops and police around the world. This is the largest peace-keeping enterprise it has ever had deployed in its 61 year history.

If Sudan finally accepts a new peace-keeping operation in Darfur, the number could climb to 115,000. The cost for supporting these ventures could top $7 billion a year.

"When you look around the world today, we are stretched," U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan told reporters last week .
The neo-cons they would love to see the U.N fail, and no doubt will do what they can to make it so, but you have to figure out how to get
Bolton back in there without Senate confirmation to do the job.
In the meantime, you better threaten, blackmail and withhold fundraising opportunities for a lot of Republicans to get them to allow you to torture people as you see fit before they break up.
Remember, the Supreme Court ruled that you could not torture suspects; they didn't say anything about not being able to torture Congressmen.

Has the pope thanked you yet for the flak he is getting yet?

Mr. President,
The Pope really stuck his foot in his mouth this time, but he can thank you for the huge negative reaction.
"I am deeply sorry for the reactions in some countries to a few passages of my address at the University of Regensburg, which were considered offensive to the sensibility of Muslims," he said, adding that the quote from Emperor Manuel II did not reflect his own opinion.

It all started when he addressed an audience at the school where he once taught theology in Regensburg Germany. His lecture ironically enough was on faith and reason.

He said, "Violence could not be justified by religion, and he used the term jihad, which he defined as Islamic holy war, as an example." He went on to quoted a 14th century Byzantine emperor of the time who had said:
"Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached," as an example.

At the time I am sure he didn't think he was doing anything wrong in discussing a point of debate for faith and reason, but your Iraq war and continued support for everything Israeli, has sensitized a majority of Muslims to consider your violence and discrimination against Muslims at home to be your crusade. You even described it as a crusade early in the war until your handlers told you it was a bad thing to say.

Right now between your actions and the innocent comment by the pope, I wouldn't give you a plug nickle for a christian's life in Baghdad or anywhere in the Mid East right now.


On the UN front, you are having a tough time getting Bolton formally nominated. I wonder why? Will you figure how to make another recession appointment as you did when you first brought him up as a candidate, to avoid Senate confirmation? Maybe when you visit the UN this week pleading for their help you can get the UN body to support his nomination. Yea, and maybe pigs will fly. The pope will need some hefty protection for a while.


Your Secret Service detail has to be HUGE by now!

I'll tell you a secret. Many Americans have figured out that your adversity to getting caught in all your lies has distanced you from the average American?

During your first term, you skillfully avoided any and all press conferences. I think you actually set a record for having the fewest press conferences of any modern president. Instead, you depend on Rummy's and Mr. "Locked and Loaded" Cheney counsel to avoid answers for your actions/debacles.

I thought it was pretty funny that at the beginning of your second term with 52 % of the popular vote, you actually thought you had capital to spend.

Maybe it's because you were never too bright, or maybe it was the bubble you live in, that it took you so long to figure out you were working from a deficit of credit instead of a surplus. It is kind of like the National debt you created, a historical record deficit. Your motto has to be "Go big or go home" when it comes to Natonal debt and world-hatred, huh junior. A poll took last year in Europe proclaimed that the majority of people there you are feared; you are more hated, than Bin Laden.


Once all this bad news filtered its way through your bubble, you were forced to make more public statements to try to hike up your poll numbers, and hold more press conferences; but being an accomplished master of repetition didn't really clarify much. It did however provide loads of material to ate-night comics. "We will stay the course, we will stand up when they stand down, terrorists hate us because of our freedom," yada yada yada.

It reminds me of that annoying repetitive TV commercial, "HEAD ON, apply it directly to your head"! "HEAD ON, apply it directly to your head"! "HEAD ON, apply it directly to your head"!

It's super repetitive, annoying, and does not tell you how it works or promise a damn thing. It must have been written by the same guy who writes your speeches.

Your writers need new material, or maybe the scope of what they can write about is narrowing.

Your disastrous war in Iraq, the setbacks in Afghanistan, the open mocking and disdain of the United States by nations both large and small, Iran's defiant stance on their right to pursue nuclear power, your lack of support for international treaties, politicizing science, your inadequate ability to get North Korea to stop building nuclear weapons, your failed policy to curb the growth of left-leaning governments in South America, the set back of the Orange revolution in the Ukraine, your undying support for Israel as they bombed the country's civilians and civilian infrastructure which all but killed off the fledgling democracy in Lebanon, the poor state of our economy, the loss of jobs during your term in office, your televised lack of response after Katrina, has only increased your security detail and the density of your bubble.

It's a shame really, the most powerful man in the world and the most isolated president in modern times, has no idea what he can do to get his national and foreign agenda supported by the country except to attack opposition, and threaten to withhold existing security practices hostage unless he gets his way.

Besides the pope, you and your administration are not the only ones to suffer for all your screw ups and apparent lies.

Fox TV has also taken a hit. They are suffering from collateral damage for it's steadfast and continuous support for advancing your propaganda, with some of the lowest ratings it has ever seen, and Murdoch is very unhappy.


Time will tell if a similar fate awaits Disney and their ABC network for recently airing the right-wing sponsored docu-propaganda, "Path to 9/11."

Anything linked to your administration smells like bad fish these days.

Many Republican congressmen up for re-election in tight races this November has allowed you to raise money for them at closed-door Republican fund raisers, but place themselves outside a ten-foot radius of you for any public photo-opportunities.

Can you say pariah/whore? You are being treated like someone they use to fulfill their physical desires with but, who is just not the kind of woman they want to take home to meet the parents.

In the old days you could kill without being questoned so much.

Mr. President,
I saw your speech today. You sounded a little out of control.

Quit picking on David Gregory, he is just asking a simple question. Do you want captured CIA, FBI, and ordinary soldiers to be treated as you propose to treat people that you capture?

It's a trick question because we know you don't care about anyone individual soldier here or there that gets caught and tortured; otherwise, you would have sent more troops into Iraq, gave them up-to-date flak jackets, up-armored Humvees, and not constantly seek to cut their benefits when they come home disabled.

This whole argument about the Geneva Conventions begs the question. How come none of the western nations have had any problems with the Geneva Convention that merited changing their national laws since it was instituted back on October 21, 1950?

Although I am sure there have always been individuals within their respective governments that wanted to change the definitions, somehow their current laws, which preserved the rights of ordinary people, prevailed regardless of how vile their enemies are once they were captured deciding that they deserved to be treated within the guidelines by the Geneva Convention.

Perhaps their enemies were "nicer" back then and they didn't kill and murder indiscriminately. Perhaps their enemies had a conscious and can no way compare to today's enemies. Maybe we have "super" enemies that are genetically meaner, more vicious, and more dastardly than any other enemies western governments ever faced before. Nah, you just miss the idea of having a hand at killing people as you did in Texas.

As I remember you enjoyed putting fireworks into live frogs as a boy and didn't you set a record for the most number of executions for any Governor in United States history?

It' simple really, you just want to kill and torture under a law of your own making to make it look as though it is legal.

And besides all that, you and Rummy already gave our people clarity before you invaded Iraq; that's how we wound up with extraordinary rendition, and Abu Gharib and Guantanimo.

The problem is that somebody had to wreck it by taking pictures at Abu Gharib, and somebody else snitched to the Washington Post that you were sending suspects to countries to be tortured by others, and somebody else leaked other stories to the papers about other episodes of torturing and killing suspects while they were in your jails.

Now you have to go public and convince people that you just had to and have to continue killing and torturing people for the good of America. You keep looking for legal black holes were no laws apply, but it just hasn't worked out very well.

Colin Powell petinioned the committee, chairman, John Warner, senators John McCain, and Lindsey Graham, a former armed services senior prosecutor, to kill your proposal of absolving Americans for war crimes as defined by the Geneva Convention. They all refused to listen to your pleas to pass his terrorism bill.
Where did that black knight riding a white horse come from? I thought he was out writing a book or giving speeches at colleges.

How could they do this to you? You had just finished threatening them just hours beforehand and told them you would veto their bill if they passed it. What part of "I am the law," don't they understand?

Corruption starts with "C" which rhymes with "G" as in GREED in the GOP.

Mr. President,

The same day the British counterintelligence infiltrated and busted up a potential plan to bring down several airlines headed to the United States, two top officials from our Counterintelligence Field Activity at the Defense Department had to quit for inflating contracts by tens of millions of dollars.

The Pentagon said David A. Burtt II, the director of Counterintelligence Field Activity, and Joseph Hefferon, the deputy director resigned after they made "the personal decision together," what ever the hell that means. At least they didn't say they wanted to spend more time with their families like 99% of the other people who have left your administration over the last five and a half years.

A Washington Post
article further explains,
"Federal investigators are looking into contracts awarded by the Pentagon's newest and fastest-growing intelligence agency, the Counterintelligence Field Activity, which has spent more than $1 billion, mostly for outsourced services, since its establishment in late 2002, according to administration and congressional sources."


Corruption has also infected several scientists from our National Institute of Health, NIH received nothing more than slaps on their wrists for improperly receiving money and gifts from venders. One scientist accepted more than $700,000 in consulting fees including trips to Switzerland and Hawaii from biotech companies was able to keep his job as well.

The corruption and convictions just don't stop. There was Delay Abramoff, Ney, Voltz, Allen, Cunningham, Lewis, Safavian, Jensen, Tobin, Wilkins, and Lay all of them are either Republican lawmakers, lobbyists, or Bush supporters

You definitely have to keep this state of affairs off the table so keep the discussion to fear, atomic bomb threats, and manly Republicans vs wimpy Defeatocrats.

As one of the axis of evil Iran just has to be dealt with because you know Iran is enriching uranium! Bomb them now, before we have mushroom clouds in our streets!

You are the macho wartime president so do your job and order a "Shock and Awe" on their ass.

Oh wait, the IAEA, International Atomic Energy Agency, just reported that there is no proof they are building a bomb? Don't we have spies in there?

Oh wait that was Valerie Plame's job and Cheney outed her CIA secret identity to get back at her husband Joe Wilson when he proved Iraq did not try to buy yellow cake in Niger.

Hmm, looks as if it is another lack of intelligence again ...this time in seems to be in the oval office.

Can't win them all, at least the Republican party faithful which are not in jail or under indictment or under investigation are making a few bucks while you are there.

It's time to go to the dark side again.

Mr. President,
Facts are for suckers, crafting the truth is where it's at.

You have made it harder this year junior. I don't know what are we going to do with you.

Since you often have been caught lying so the only thing, you can do is, what you have always done; draw us into your alternative reality. Your GOP has to make us question what we saw and heard.

Much of America wanted to believe the reasons you gave us for invading Iraq, even though many of us knew it was wrong to invade a country that did nothing to hurt us.

Over the last five years, that trust in your leadership evaporated like sweat on a hot pig, as we caught you and your minions lying over and over again.

Fortunately, it is time for Congressional elections which present you with an opportunity to boost your ratings from the 30's and break into the solid 40's.

The election season means dragging as many of Americans as you can through the neo-conservative's black hole and into your "reality," where you have never lied and everything you did was exactly the right thing to do.
blackhole
To lead voters onto the path to your inner sanctum, confront Americans right up front and ask," Who are you going to believe me or your lying eyes? That'll stop them in their tracks, then waving shiny objects, perhaps the stars on the American flag in front of us to distract and redirect our thoughts.

It is at this point you utter the following mantra into our ears over and over again, : "We will be invaded by terrorists if Democrats win and you will die." "Republicans are strong; Democrats are weak." "Vote Republican if you want to live."
amernylon
The combination of sparkling stars from the American flag, the curt denial of doing anything wrong, plus our eventual acceptance of repeating your republican mantra over and over again should do the trick.

It's worked for every election since 9/11 why shouldn't it work again?


But just in case it doesn't work, you might want to retain a personal lawyer for all those nasty investigations the Democrats will initiate if they win the House.

Happy trails buddy.

Are you really as desperate as you sounded yesterday?

Mr. President,

I saw you yesterday politicizing 9/11 again. You sounded "needy." It sounded as though you were pleading with America, "Please please believe me!"
_img_173_3313_1024_George-Bush
You sounded eerily like the time when you mocked Karla Fay Tucker on the eve of executing her in Texas.

The Tucker case had been in the papers and was widely discussed because you refused to commute her death sentence to life imprisonment and decided to execute her in Texas despite her years of activities after she had become a born-again Christian, ministered other prisoners and performed other charitable work.

How did you answer that reporter who asked you about Tucker's comments during Larry King's televised interview with Tucker? The reporter quoted you saying, "Please,' Bush whimpers, his lips pursed in mock desperation, 'don't kill me."

Some people call it believing your own press, or living in a bubble. I like the phrase "Caught in the embrace of your own myth."

You just flat out refuse to listen to what America and the world is saying. You are so mired in so many lies you have told the nation that I don't think you know what the truth is anymore. As far as resorting to using the deaths from 9/11 to support your policies; it is typical of someone who is so desperate that any bounds of morality are plainly disregarded.

It's just so ironic to hear you call for unity after you spent your whole term splitting the country up to win political elections. Sometimes the worst thing that can happen is getting what you wanted. You wanted a split America to solidify your base; well you got it junior.

I didn't expect a "Can't we just get along"-Rodney King moment from you, but I guess it shows the level of desperation.

Maybe if you fell on your knees in the Rose Garden and cried like Jimmy Swaggert, the TV evangelist did after it was discovered that he secretly had a long history of meeting prostitutes in various hotels.

It is interesting to think that somewhere, Karla Fay Tucker must be laughing her ass off.

I did not receive the normal thank you for writing auto-response from the White House.

This is the best description of what you have done to our country.

Mr. President,
I just heard the best description of what you have done to this country by a cable news program of all things; Keith Obermann's Countdown News on MSNBC.

I wish I could write something like this as well as Keith Obermann but like so many other times where I find my skills lacking, I have learned to sit back and just marvel at the skill that others display. Such is tonight's program by Keith Obermann.


I have copied his speech here for you or one of your lackys to read. It is an important speech. It puts everything you are about in perspective. He strips you down as naked as the day you were born, in bold clear language.

Sept. 11, 2006
Keith Obermann on "Countdown."

This hole in the ground
Half a lifetime ago, I worked in this now-empty space.   And for 40 days after the attacks, I worked here again, trying to make sense of what happened, and was yet to happen, as a reporter.
All the time, I knew that the very air I breathed contained the remains of thousands of people, including four of my friends, two in the planes and -- as I discovered from those "missing posters" seared still into my soul -- two more in the Towers.
And I knew too, that this was the pyre for hundreds of New York policemen and firemen, of whom my family can claim half a dozen or more, as our ancestors.
I belabor this to emphasize that, for me this was, and is, and always shall be, personal.
And anyone who claims that I and others like me are "soft,"or have "forgotten" the lessons of what happened here is at best a grasping, opportunistic, dilettante and at worst, an idiot whether he is a commentator, or a Vice President, or a President.
However, of all the things those of us who were here five years ago could have forecast -- of all the nightmares that unfolded before our eyes, and the others that unfolded only in our minds -- none of us could have predicted this.
Five years later this space is still empty.
Five years later there is no memorial to the dead.
Five years later there is no building rising to show with proud defiance that we would not have our America wrung from us, by cowards and criminals.
Five years later this country's wound is still open.
Five years later this country's mass grave is still unmarked.
Five years later this is still just a background for a photo-op.
It is beyond shameful.
At the dedication of the Gettysburg Memorial -- barely four months after the last soldier staggered from another Pennsylvania field -- Mr. Lincoln said, "we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract."
Lincoln used those words to immortalize their sacrifice.
Today our leaders could use those same words to rationalize their reprehensible inaction. "We cannot dedicate, we can not consecrate, we can not hallow this ground." So we won't.
Instead they bicker and buck pass. They thwart private efforts, and jostle to claim credit for initiatives that go nowhere. They spend the money on irrelevant wars, and elaborate self-congratulations, and buying off columnists to write how good a job they're doing instead of doing any job at all.
Five years later, Mr. Bush, we are still fighting the terrorists on these streets. And look carefully, sir, on these 16 empty acres.  The terrorists are clearly, still winning.
And, in a crime against every victim here and every patriotic sentiment you mouthed but did not enact, you have done nothing about it.
And there is something worse still than this vast gaping hole in this city, and in the fabric of our nation.  There is its symbolism of the promise unfulfilled, the urgent oath, reduced to lazy execution.
The only positive on 9/11 and the days and weeks that so slowly and painfully followed it was the unanimous humanity, here, and throughout the country. The government, the President in particular, was given every possible measure of support.
Those who did not belong to his party -- tabled that.
Those who doubted the mechanics of his election -- ignored that.
Those who wondered of his qualifications -- forgot that.
History teaches us that nearly unanimous support of a government cannot be taken away from that government by its critics. It can only be squandered by those who use it not to heal a nation's wounds, but to take political advantage.
Terrorists did not come and steal our newly-regained sense of being American first, and political, fiftieth. Nor did the Democrats. Nor did the media. Nor did the people.
The President -- and those around him -- did that.
They promised bi-partisanship, and then showed that to them, "bi-partisanship" meant that their party would rule and the rest would have to follow, or be branded, with ever-escalating hysteria, as morally or intellectually confused, as appeasers, as those who, in the Vice President's words yesterday, "validate the strategy of the terrorists."
They promised protection, and then showed that to them "protection" meant going to war against a despot whose hand they had once shaken, a despot who we now learn from our own Senate Intelligence Committee, hated al-Qaida as much as we did.
The polite phrase for how so many of us were duped into supporting a war, on the false premise that it had 'something to do' with 9/11 is "lying by implication."
The impolite phrase is "impeachable offense."
Not once in now five years has this President ever offered to assume responsibility for the failures that led to this empty space, and to this, the current, curdled, version of our beloved country.
Still, there is a last snapping flame from a final candle of respect and fairness: even his most virulent critics have never suggested he alone bears the full brunt of the blame for 9/11.
Half the time, in fact, this President has been so gently treated, that he has seemed not even to be the man most responsible for anything in his own administration.
Yet what is happening this very night?
A mini-series, created, influenced -- possibly financed by -- the most radical and cold of domestic political Machiavellis, continues to be televised into our homes.
The documented truths of the last fifteen years are replaced by bald-faced lies; the talking points of the current regime parroted; the whole sorry story blurred, by spin, to make the party out of office seem vacillating and impotent, and the party in office, seem like the only option.
How dare you, Mr. President, after taking cynical advantage of the unanimity and love, and transmuting it into fraudulent war and needless death,  after monstrously transforming it into fear and suspicion and turning that fear into the campaign slogan of three elections?  How dare you -- or those around you -- ever "spin" 9/11?
Just as the terrorists have succeeded -- are still succeeding -- as long as there is no memorial and no construction here at Ground Zero.
So, too, have they succeeded, and are still succeeding as long as this government uses 9/11 as a wedge to pit Americans against Americans.
This is an odd point to cite a television program, especially one from March of 1960. But as Disney's continuing sell-out of the truth (and this country) suggests, even television programs can be powerful things.
And long ago, a series called "The Twilight Zone" broadcast a riveting episode entitled "The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street." 
In brief: a meteor sparks rumors of an invasion by extra-terrestrials disguised as humans. The electricity goes out. A neighbor pleads for calm. Suddenly his car -- and only his car -- starts. Someone suggests he must be the alien. Then another man's lights go on. As charges and suspicion and panic overtake the street, guns are inevitably produced.  An "alien" is shot -- but he turns out to be just another neighbor, returning from going for help.  The camera pulls back to a near-by hill, where two extra-terrestrials are seen manipulating a small device that can jam electricity. The veteran tells his novice that there's no need to actually attack, that you just turn off a few of the human machines and then, "they pick the most dangerous enemy they can find, and it's themselves."
And then, in perhaps his finest piece of writing, Rod Serling sums it up with words of remarkable prescience, given where we find ourselves tonight: "The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, prejudices, to be found only in the minds of men.
"For the record, prejudices can kill and suspicion can destroy, and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all its own -- for the children, and the children yet unborn."
When those who dissent are told time and time again -- as we will be, if not tonight by the President, then tomorrow by his portable public chorus -- that he is preserving our freedom, but that if we use any of it, we are somehow un-American...When we are scolded, that if we merely question, we have "forgotten the lessons of 9/11"... look into this empty space behind me and the bi-partisanship upon which this administration also did not build, and tell me:
Who has left this hole in the ground?
We have not forgotten, Mr. President.
You have.
May this country forgive you.


I remember 9/11 and everything else that came with it.

Mr. President,
The day of all days comes at last. Christmas day for war hawks everywhere. It commemorates the day when the world was once with us. "Today We Are All Americans" was splashed across the French papers.

That didn't last very long. You successfully guided our country from being, innocent victims of o horrific attack to world-class lepers in record time.

The 9/11 attack has brought about many conspiracy theories because it was just too well timed for your ne-conservative buddies. The attack was the perfect reason to initiate attacks on Mid East countries regardless of their connection to the terrorists, to implement their plan for a United States empire.

The neo-con's ideological justification for war in the Mid East has caused thousands of deaths and injured, with no empire to show for all the misery and the billions of dollars you spent on your Iraq folly.

America, the country of hope and democracy, the victim of an unjust attack, shortly became America, the world's pariah, a pseudo-democracy/monarchy who, if attacked again, would just be getting what it deserves.

It is also a day we are reminded that Osama has not been caught and has indeed escaped American Justice, in part due to the incompetence of our military leaders at Tora Bora and the mercurial nature of Pakistan our sometimes-ally.

It is also a day full of remembrances for the victims of the attacks but also for
the thousands heroic firefighters and rescue teams who now suffer debilitating lung diseases because you decided to sacrifice their health to open the stock markets as quickly as possible. You had the EPA director lie to the workers at the site and said the air was not toxic when you knew better.

It is a day we remember how many more enemies have morphed from the small group of Al Quida, because of your ginned up reasons for war and the debacle of the execution of the war itself.

How you can show your face on this day of days is a testament to the density of that bubble you live in. You don't have a clue. You must be constantly surprised at the animosity by the millions of Americans and most of the world, has towards you.

The stark change of World opinions is best showed by, a Swiss paper defined the attitude in
Europe as "Today We Are All Hezbollah."

I have one question for you junior. Is Cheney having cake to commemorate the day he took over your presidency?

My letter to Mickey Mouse.

Mr. President,
Here is what I sent to your buddy the mouse.

Dear Mickey,
I have long and hard about what me and my family will do to protest your airing of "Path to 9/11." I finally decided on a course of action to take regarding your orchestration of falsehoods. By producing "The Path to 9/11" you have crossed a boundary of decency, fairness and respect for our dead victims and the heroes who tried to save them on 9/11.

I am tired of the hateful conservative talk-radio. I am tired of being lied to by my government. And now I am being lied to by the company which produced some of the most lovable characters my daughters ever enjoyed over the years.
Your decision to produce and show the "Path to 9/11" with all its falsehoods even forced us to have a parents-daughters talk about the Disney company.
As we all know real life is not fantasy land and as parents we had to explain to our daughters how the real Disney Studios decided to show a film which is advertized as a documentary which was really fiction, politicised for Republicans to get re-elected.
We had to explain how their childhood heros are produced by a company as evil as any of the protagonists you have ever shown in your movies.
We told them we were going to boycott ABC and Disney. The kids were great about it. One question we couldn't answer was, "Why did Disney do that?

Here are the movies my family are boycotting: Invincible, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, Cars, The Nightmare Before Christmas 3D, The Santa Claus 3, Bridge to Terabithia, Meet the Robinsons, Ratatouille, The Wild, Shaggy Dog, Eight Below, Glory Road, Step Up, The Guardian, The Prestige, Deja Vu, Apocalypto, Annapolis, Casanova, Stay Alive, Kinky Boots. Keeping up with the Steins, The Heart of the Game, Once in a Lifetime, The Night Listener, Renaissance, The Queen, Scary Movie 4
Here are the record labels we will refuse to pay to download: Walt Dinsey Records, Hollywood Records, Lyric Street Records, Mammoth Records
Here are the television channels we will not view anymore: The Disney Channel, Toon Disney, ABC, ABC Family, ESPN, SOAPnet, Lifetime, A&E, E!, Jetix
We will add to this list as we become aware of any other Disney productions as they come out.

I am also calling my 401K Fund manager and ask them if they are invested in Disney. I may even 'short' the Disney stock

Despite the fact that me and my family are mere drops in the vast ocean of Disney and ABC viewers, these few drops are voting with our remotes, our vacation plans and our money for Disney-funded movies, or toys. If I get really desperate about viewing another Pirates movie, I'lll borrow it from someone, but I will NEVER buy it.

As parents we have to show our children that we have to stand up to efforts at manipulating history to achieve the political goals of an incompetent administration, and those who support them, wherever we find it in whatever way we can.

I will make this prediction. This issue will not blow over but instead will take on the kind of backlash that Wal Mart has suffered. I don't not base this on my new gut churning reaction to your company, I am insignificant by myself, but to a significant amount of bad publicity I have already seen coming your way.

September 11 will mark more than just our observance of terrorists attacking our country it is also the day Disney destroyed the childhood images of right winning over wrong.

Nice going Mickey

Thomas Guzman

You are obviously more macho than John Wayne.

Mr. President,
How do you square your premise for invading Iraq when a new report from the Senate states Saddam had NOTHING to do with Al Queda and in fact was very wary of them. It also stated that you knew it was false information, but you decided to use it to justify the war?

Most Americans already suspected you, Cheney and Rice lied; the Senate report just made it official.

The Senate report, an official bipartisan-generated document by the Congress of the United States proclaims that you falsified information that directly caused the death of thousands of people. One could call you a mass murderer and a war criminal.

Now that is something to put in your resume. It makes a hell-of-a title too; George Bush, war criminal.

You can't get more macho than "Bush, War Criminal." Not even John Wayne or Bruce Willis was ever called a "war criminal." Your recent admission to keeping prisoners in overseas secret prisons just "fits" your persona.

You need some bling to match though. How about a spiked collar and an armful of tattoos? Leather wrist guards, and a few facial scars wouldn't hurt either.

I waited for your get-well card but I never got it. What kind of NSA do you really have? Didn't they tell you I was sick and out of sorts?

I feel like I am repeating myself until I realize that there is no end to how stupid you can be. Your incompetence and brash behavior has no apparent limits; indeed you have no shame.

You seem to be on TV almost every day now spouting and pounding your fist about fighting terror, while your allies are either getting decimated for supporting your war or selling you out.

You and your fellow republicans have nothing to claim as accomplishments for the mid-term elections so you have to resort to portraying a "tough-on-terror" illusion. and defame all your critics. The Republicans have even supported the use of cluster bombs in populated areas to show how tough they are.

Tony Blair is being forced out of office for supporting your war. President of Pakistan Musharraf has forgiven Bin Laden and has chosen to leave him alone as long as he promises to live in peace. And South Korea announced they are pulling their troops out.

The second part of your plan to keep from being impeached depends on destroying your critics.

According to you and your minions, anyone who disagrees with you is either, deluded, an appeaser, a Nazi, a communist, a terrorist or just a garden-variety traitor. What's the matter can't you settle on just one derogatory description?

You amaze me jumior.

You accept so little responsibility for someone who has done so much irreversible harm to the country and the world .

You have such a polarizing and ham-handed unilateral approach to world affairs, the nations around the world are gathering together against us.

You claim to have improved american lives so much while actually destroying the middle class and cutting their benefits at the same time.

I noticed your face is more gaunt, your hair more white and your skin is thinner to criticism. How can this be? You said you didn't care what the polls say about you? You are going to have to pace yourself, it's not going to get any easier for you.
