Nation Losing Confidence In Bush

“They’re weak on defense, and they’ll raise your taxes”.

I bet you know who said that, don’t you? Why, none other than Commander in Chief, George W. Bush! He ‘s the same guy who keeps telling us that we have taken the fight to “them” before they can bring it to us. Some call Mr. Bush a "uniter".

Of course, any historian worth a grain of salt will tell you this is essentially the same line of rhetoric pursued by Hitler during World War Two, and the invasion of Europe. Meanwhile, the situation in Iraq has spiraled downward. New reports suggest as many as 655,000 Iraqis have been killed as a result of the invasion.

I listened to Mr. Bush speak this morning, and it was more of the same.
It was not a comforting speech, by any measure. He spoke of consequences for Iran and North Korea, but we must ask ourselves, after years of this blarney are we really better off now?

Obviously, the situation in Iraq is far worse than four years ago.
The situation with Afghanistan is worse than four years ago. The situations with North Korea and Iran are certainly worse, as well.

Bush is openly threatening military action against these “rogue nations”, but the US military is already stretched thin. This, from a man whose job approval rating has dropped to a staggering low of 33 percent. His tone during the speech this morning was that of a desperate man, clinging to power, having been drained of credibility and respect. He said crazy things, and repeated them until it became some sort of demented mantra. It was a tragic display of incompetence.

It’s sad, really,
but George W. Bush is slipping away, one bad decision at a time.
