We need to constantly remind ourselves that, in tandem with his unconstutional power grabs, the other great malignancy of Bush is his incompetence and unerring ability to screw up. That was readily apparent to anyone paying attention before 9-11. He was just as incompetent when he woke up on 9/12/2001.

If a pollster asked them: "Who has done more damage to the U.S. since 9/11/2001, Osama bin Laden or George Bush?", how do you think Americans would respond?

Bubba

"The challenge now is to accept that just because George W. Bush hyped the threat....."

Pure, unadulterated BS, with nothing but partisan hype to support such a slimeball contention.

Ed Cone

I think "hyped" is debatable.

I would settle for "misunderstood and reacted poorly to."

Bubba

""misunderstood and reacted poorly to" the pure, unadulterated BS?

No, the President understood it for what it was and is, and acted properly to it.

Terror, Bubba, potentially threatens Americans, but it doesn't threaten the nation. There's a difference. Britons understood that about the IRA. We need to understand that about al Qaeda.

Bush's entry into Afghanistan was necessary and justified. His performance in Afghanistan borders on malfeasance.

Bush's invasion and occupation of Iraq was unnecessary and made to appear just by a scaffolding of lies, deciet and propaganda. More than being ineffective, it has created a terrorist threat where none existed before. The demand for resources has stalled our eforts in Afghanistan, allowing for a resurgent Taliban and for al Qaeda to find safe haven in Pakistan. Neither would have happened had Bush focused on the legitimate job he faced in Afghanistan and avoided the illegitimacy of invading Iraq.

To this we can add the economic damage caused by Bush's deficit spending and his war costs, his legitimization of the undemocratic millenialist right, the corruption and contempt for the law endemic in his administration, his unconstitutional aggrandizement of presidential power, and the fact that almost everyone on the planet loathes him, bringing this country and its citizens into their lowest repute in history.

None of that was done by terrorists. We did it to ourselves.

Bush has followed a road to ruin, not the course we would have followed if the man who actually won the 2000 election had been inaugurated.

Friend speaks my mind.

Bubba

"Bush's invasion and occupation of Iraq was unnecessary and made to appear just by a scaffolding of lies, deciet and propaganda. More than being ineffective, it has created a terrorist threat where none existed before."

Absolutely, unequivocally, 180 degrees wrong.

That's the result of the particular group think of people refuse to see beyond the end of their nose, or chose to believe what they believe based on the political expediency.

We've been through all this before.

Nothing has changed to make your type of dangerous and wrong attitude right in neither a real sense nor a moral sense. There's nothing you or your Amen Chorus here will say or do to change that fact.

Not convinced?

Continue to prevaricate and obfuscate the issue.

Just be thankful there will still be people like me to be around to salvage something of our nation and society after the disasters to which your type of thinking will surely condemn us.

"Just be thankful there will still be people like me to be around to salvage something of our nation and society after the disasters to which your type of thinking will surely condemn us."

Okay, I lied. THIS is the funniest thing you've written. Woooo! I almost split my side after reading this one. Thanks man!

Bubba

Gee whiz....

Only TWO amens so far from the Chorus?

I'm disappointed.

Came the last night of sadness
And it was clear we couldn't go on
The door was open and the wind appeared
The candles blew and then disappeared
The curtains flew then he appeared
Saying don't be afraid ...

Bubba

There's number three.

Who's next?

Debra

billg, amen. Bubba, the kind of world you want to live in died with the social revolutions of the 1960s. You lost (just like the south in the Civil War). Its over. Give it up. You lost.

billg

Bubba, the only thing sadder than believing a lieing politician is believing your own lies.

Iraq was not a terrorist threat before 2003. It is now. Responsbility for that falls squarely with George Bush.

Bubba

"Bubba, the kind of world you want to live in died with the social revolutions of the 1960s."

How would you know?

Were you even ALIVE in the 60s?

Or are you just channeling one of your spiritual predecessors?

You're number four.

"Bubba, the only thing sadder than believing a lieing politician is believing your own lies."

When did you come to that self-realization?

Have you gotten a literary agent yet? You could have one of those self-help best sellers in a concept like that.


C'mon, gang. You can do better than that. The response is really disappointing.

Ed Cone

Could we possibly have a thread that isn't about Bubba?

The guy's not going change his mind. He's not even going to have a conversation with you.

Please stop clogging up the comments with this crud.

Bubba

"He's not even going to have a conversation with you."

Not given the quality of the posts in reply.

C'mon Ed....join the Chorus.

meblogin

Did Bush make the decision alone to attack Iraq?

Clinton attacked who after our country was attacked multiple times?

Bubba


"Did Bush make the decision alone to attack Iraq?

Stop making sense, meb.

By popular demand,it's not allowed here.
