Bush: More Dangerous and Unpredictable Than Ever
The Republicans lost the election last November. Bush’s “Surge” plan has been ridiculed and condemned by practically everybody. The Bush Administration will be investigated mercilessly by the new Democratic Congress. And yet Bush is more headstrong and more belligerent than ever. Not to mention that he’s stark raving mad.
Like they say, an animal that’s been wounded and cornered is more dangerous than ever.
The neocons are still lusting for world dominion, and George W. Bush is running the most secretive presidency in our history. This combination makes the rumor mill go crazy. Are we about to invade Iran? A former Middle East analyst for the State Department said “I’ve seen some of the planning ... You’re not talking about a surgical strike. You’re talking about a war against Iran that likely would destabilize the Middle East for years.”
Or maybe we’ll invade Syria. North Korea maybe? Venezuela?
And Bush’s solution to Iraqmire is to send more troops?!?!? That’s right, when you find yourself in a hole, keep on digging. Dig deeper! Faster! Two months ago the Iraqi prime minister asked Bush to withdraw American troops in Baghdad to the outskirts of the city. He told Bush Iraqi troops were ready to handle the security of central Baghdad.
Against the advice of the Iraqi prime minister, the Iraq Study Group and his own generals, Bush wants to send in MORE American troops.
So Iraqmire keeps getting more hopeless, and we have the constant tension and fear that any day now we’ll be invading Iran or Syria or God-Knows-Where. And on top of that, Bush’s invasion of America is getting scarier all the time.
Let’s see, what’s his latest assault on American values? Oh great, new rules allowing detainees to be convicted — even executed — based on hearsay testimony and coerced statements. Not in my America.
To make matters worse, Bush only hires people who share his contempt for civil liberties and the democratic process. The one prerequisite for joining the Bush Administration: you have to keep telling him that he’s the president and he can do anything he wants.
Attorney General Electrodes “Alberto” Gonzales is the worst thing that ever happened to the Justice Department (and we thought John Ashcroft was bad). Our top law enforcement officer thinks the Geneva Convention is quaint and outdated, and that federal judges are unqualified to make rulings that affect national security.
And Dick Cheney never met a domestic spying program he didn’t love.
The voters, Congress, the courts and even the Religious Right are moving further away from that stench in the White House. What’s our deranged “leader” gonna do next? Hell hath no fury like a spoiled pampered trustfund baby scorned. Watch your back.
