State of the Union? F’ing Pathetic.

Says President George W. Bush “This country is pursuing a new strategy in Iraq, and I ask you to give it a chance to work.

This is the equivalent of when the three American Idol judges say “No” and the AI hopeful pleads, “Can I sing something else?” The response should be a resounding “NO!”

We gave you three years to make your Iraq strategy work, W, and you’ve screwed the pooch. As of this week, 7 of 10 Americans think you’re doing a crappy job, more Americans than not want you out of the presidency, and the fact that you would lead us further into war, a war that has been condemned by everyone from your citizens, to your congress, to your former cabinet members (including your former Secretary of State), to your joint chiefs for crying out loud, is nothing short of dispicable. When people stood in your way, even your own generals, you simply stripped them of their power like a true dictator. You’ve removed the very notion of checks and balances. You’ve broken the law and rewritten it to clear yourself of wrongdoing. You’ve disguised your crimes under the banner of defense, and rallied our sympathies on lies. You’ve wiped out democracy.

But I don’t have to spend my time being mad about this, because time will take care of things. The history books will remember you as a simple man too thick to make smart decisions or coherent speeches, a puppet of his corrupt administration (read: Cheney and Rove), the first person to begin to erode the freedoms that make America great. You will be remembered with a wince, a scar on American history, the man who turned the world against America, a man who leaves the country much worse than he received it.

In fact, if anything, we should thank you, Mr. Bush, for reminding us what makes America great. When your embarassing reign of terror is over, perhaps we’ll appreciate what we have here with the USA.

Sad State of America

This is a direct quote from U.S. SENATOR PATRICK LEAHY: I have never seen a time when our Constitution and fundamental rights as Americans were more threatened by their own government.

Says it all. I feel something that is as close to hatred as I’ve ever felt. Betrayed by our own government. Misled by our president. A corrupt, dispisable administration that will almost certainly be vilified by future generations has destroyed – no, better yet, intentionally pissed on – almost everything that makes America great. Suspending core American principles. Holding people without trials. Torturing criminals. Spying on Americans. Attacking a non-threat because they went after his dad.

George Bush is a pathetic leader and his central staff mostly consists of people who have done a miserable job at supporting America and dammit! I want my rights back!

Bravo, John Kerry

John Kerry, a too-weak-to-be-President-in-2004 politician, a guy who many Democrats really saw as “the best we got, but not what we want” back then, today issued a smackdown to the coward Republicans who haven’t ever served in the military but recklessly deploy them with no plan.

Instead of apologizing for what was, admittedly, a touchy statement about a connection between education (or lack thereof) and being in Iraq, presumably as a soldier, he went back on the offensive. It was a good move. His original statement was a bit cryptic, because it appears to suggest that soldiers are too dumb to have a decent job. But with this follow-up as a companion piece, it reads differently. Update: What Kerry meant to say was that if you don’t study, you end up GETTING US stuck in Iraq. In other words, it was supposed to be a jab at Bush that suggested that he was too dumb to know any better.

As someone who worked for the Navy for several years, I can safely say that my opinion of the military is high, but my opinion of this administration’s actions are low. I find the entire current administration to be a disaster, as shame, and an embarrassment to the American people. I wish more Democrats stood up and called their bullshit and rhetoric.

I’m not against conservative political sentiment, but I find the most prominent Republicans to be the most shameful, hypocritical, lying bastards out there.

So well played, John Kerry. Well played.
