Ah well, another 80 billion down the crapper. You know what scares me most? All of you moron right wing republicans on this board fail to understand that by the time most of you are eligable for social security....there will be none. That's right. NONE. I sure as hell hope you have a plan for retirement, because Bush sure doesn't have a plan for you.
Bush is going to have to answer alot of tough questions in about a month or so...From his OWN PARTY. Republican senators and congressmen are beginning to get restless. They are about to start asking the same questions Democrats are right now. Why? Because they are starting to realize that Bush is the worst thing for America right now. Nevermind the fact that this country's economy is in the crapper. Spend the money in Iraq! Bush isn't hunting down terrorists. Bush is finishing what dear old dad started. It's been no secret from the start the only reason he is in Iraq is because he had an excuse. "Invade Iraq" was number one on his list when he entered office. Not social reform. NOT education reform. Iraq was at the top of the list. I get so damn sick of listening to republicans say the liberals are just made Bush is President, and that is why we're picking on him. That couldn't be farther from the truth. What scares me the most, though, is that we send Bush over to other countries to speak on behalf of the American people. A man who whenever he is off a script, can't walk and chew gum. A man that when asked questions in interviews he really has no clue how to answer, just pauses for 5 seconds...says nothing....and then speaks. I don't even want to hear that it is what any of us would do when asked a tough question. That may very well be. But the world, and Americans want a President that can think on his feet, and answer any question quickly, and intelligently.
When Bush was having a press conference after the slaughter at the mess hall, his response was "It's always tough to accept the losing of the loss of a life." What????? This man is seriously worse than Dan Quale. And I dunno what is more Scary. The fact that he went to Yale, or the fact that he got IN
to Yale. Hell. If he can get in, so can I! I'll be President the day I'm eligable by age. And I have a slight speech empediment as well.
Now, I'll agree that the "No Child Left Behind Act" was a great idea. Great concept on paper. Problem is you have to fund the damn thing. You don't put an act onto paper, sign it, and then shit the money away. Children are being left behind. Period. And at the rate we are going, it will never be a success in the next 15 years. We're going to leave those children with so much debt, they're children will MAYBE have a shot at bennefiting from the NCLBA. It's the same thing with Social Security. I'm going to have to go get a great job, and start packing away money for my retirement real soon here, because when I'm eligable for S.S., I'm gonna need it.
It scares me that we couldn't get rid of him in November. But, I'll have to accept it. I'm just glad I live in a blue state. It's a very well know fact, however, that the red states are the most un-educated, least moral states. Least moral according to the Bible, that is. They have the highest divorce rates, more domestic violence. Higher alcoholism rates. Too bad Bush doesn't still drink. Then he'd definately fit right on in in Texas still. What is more terrifying still, is that Rudy Gulliani, or Jeb Bush will be running in 2008.
Now, back to Iraq. Bush is the man without a plan. No direction in this country. He has no exit plan. He has no plan on making it work there. It's obvious what his plan was. Get Sadam(Which I agree was a good idea in principle), bomb the hell out of the country, and......nothing. No idea what to do after that. The only reason Bush is in Iraq, is because he knew Iraq was the only place he'd win something. Afghanistan would have been a lost cause. We'd STILL be running around the mountains looking for Bin Ladan. Oh...but wait. LGW
-Luftfahrtgesellschaft Walter (Germany)">HE'S the one that attacked us on 9/11. Bush couldn't even LINK Sadam to Bin Laden! He just said "Well he MUST have helped...I mean...come on." Nevermind we still havn't found those famous WMD's. And what about those terrorists we keep saying we're after. Yes, we keep finding Al Queda operatives every few months. But if you throw enough resources into it, you can find anyone eventually. But Al Queda isn't in Iraq anymore, are they? And if we do find them there, it's few and far between that we actually do. They know to stay out of there. Yes, folks. We're in Iraq because Bush wants to avenge his father's failure. Just like Dubya is a failure. This is a man that couldn't even make oil companies work in Texas, bought a baseball team simply because he likes baseball, and up until a while ago, was a real boozer. Now, Bush likes to say that we're training an Iraqi military and police force. But over half the police force that Bush trained were thrown out because of they're criminal records. And we are taking our sweet time with that military.
I'll make the statement that by half way through his second term, Bush is going to have most of his own party pissed at him. That is a pretty safe bet these days. His own party is all ready beginning to turn on him. He is rapidly losing support. And sooner or later he won't be able to "Um", "Uh", "Well," and "Ya see" his way out of tough questions. Now, you do gotta admit it is pretty funny to watch him think REALLY hard
