Pardon me, but I can't help but wonder if a President with a competence rating of only 38% should be allowed to even nominate someone for the Supreme Court. Not only are his poll numbers so low but there are increasing rumblings that he should be impeached. So why should he be allowed to just "carry on business as usual?" Could we not delay the nomination for a while until it becomes more clear what might happen to our gloriously stubborn and mentally handicapped "leader?"
More of our troops are dying every day. It's obvious there will never be a military solution to the Iraq "war." But what does the idiot-in-chief say: "stay the course, we'll never retreat, we're winning, things are going well, they are in the last throes of the insurgency, blah, blah, blah." And all of this coming from his fake ranch in Texas where he is taking a month long vacation. Actually, we may be better off when he's on vacation because when he's supposedly working he constantly makes things worse. Bush is the most hopelessly incompetent President in the history of the United States. I guess in a sense it's not his fault. Being lazy and dim-witted he just does what Cheney/Rove tell him to do. Why the American public continues to put up with these evil bastards is utterly beyond my comprehension. Why the Republican party puts up with this disastrous administration is also beyond my ability to understand. They are surely going to destroy the Republican party, possibly forever, just as they have already destroyed the reputation of the United States. The entire world loathes this American administration and they are increasingly coming to loathe Americans in general (particulary as they cannot understand why we continue to support these obvious war criminals).
I once, early in the discussion of "war" with Iraq, saw a bumper sticker which read, "Nuke their ass and steal their gas." At the time I thought this was just some incredibly ignorant individual crank expressing an outrageous opinion in order to get some attention. I didn't realize he was apparently speaking for the American public at large. Bush/Cheney and the neocons are war criminals, pure and simple. They should be held fully accountable for the horrors they have wrought. No more business as usual.
The strong wind driving the snow
across the landscape in the misty morning light,
reminds me once more
how desire drives me to you.
