George W. Bush said in an interview that "the Iraqis should owe us an enormous sense of gratitude," or words to that effect. Let's see. As a result of our 14 years of sanctions it has been estimated that a million Iraqi children perished. As a result of Bush's illegal, immoral, and unnecessary "war" it has been estimated that another 650,000 Iraqis have perished. The country's infrastructure has been mostly destroyed, unemployment is rampant, their nation has been plunged into a vicious civil war. Most Iraqis seem to agree that things were better under Sadam. And Bush thinks they should be grateful? If this is not an example of Bush's total divorce from reality what would be? It is also another example of his total lack of empathy or apparently even understanding of the monumental war crimes he has unleashed. Bush/Cheney are nothing short of monsters that should not only be drummed out of office but sent to the Hague to be tried for their obvious war crimes.
Pelosi for President! As Nancy Pelosi is now third in line for the presidency, if Bush/Cheney could be forced to resign, or be impeached, she would become president. I'm all for it. I don't know what kind of president she might be but I do know that she could not possibly be as bad as Bush/Cheney. Indeed, as I said once before, if she has a maid, the maid would be a better president than Bush. Bush, the great "decider," has decided to kill off more of our splendid military, all to satisfy his own ego and possibly hand over our defeat to the next president (whoever that unfortunate person may be). There is no other reasonable explanation for his pig-headed demand that we "move forward" (aka "stay the course"). I'm sure the entire world has to be wondering why we Americans continue to put up with this obviously insane loser. It is true that some are now "talking the talk," but so far no one is actually "walking the walk." Bush/Cheney have to go - there is no other way.
