If we were wise and brave we would have taken down this President a long time ago.
Is an earnest desire for peace a foolish delusion? George Bush thinks so…and who could know more about foolish delusions?
The world is full of fools and America must be their Mecca. Where else could a certified goober become head of state?
Mr. Bush also served up a veiled rebuke to critics like Senator Barack Obama, the Democratic presidential candidate, who suggest the Bush administration should negotiate with countries like Iran and Syria. He called such a strategy “a foolish delusion,” though he did not mention Mr. Obama by name.
“Some seem to believe we should negotiate with terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along,” he said. “We have an obligation to call this what it is – the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history.”
The surprising thing is not that Bush became President. That can be explained by examining the extensive historical record of Republican cheating and election theft.
No, the surprising thing is that there are still Americans who remain unashamed by their support for such an obviously disgraceful fool as George W. Bush.
Let’s take a closer look at W’s statement to the Knesset.
“Some seem to believe we should negotiate with terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along,” he said.
First note the use of the terms ‘terrorists and radicals’ as if those words didn’t apply equally well to himself. One man’s terrorist George…
Then notice the assumption that the only outcome allowable is for us to persuade the ‘terrorists’ that ‘they have been wrong all along,’ because of course we have been right and there is no such thing as compromise or a re-framing of the arguments. Leave it to a fool like George Bush to equate negotiating with persuading the opposition that they have been wrong all along.
Do you really believe that attempting to make peace is a ‘foolish delusion’ George? Really?
What would your buddy Jesus think?
“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.”
If we were wise and brave we would negotiate with our enemies.
We might start by asking Syria and Iran to work in cooperation with the Arab League or the UN or both to provide an all Muslim Peace Keeping force so that we could withdraw all American forces from Iraq immediately.
If we were wise and brave we would dismantle/re-purpose the Military Industrial Complex to pursue peaceful solutions to the problems we all face and to save our children and the world from its ravenous evil.
If we were wise and brave we would never elect another Republican President.
If we were wise and brave we would act to protect the future of our children and grandchildren.
If we were wise and brave we would bring the war criminals in our government to justice.
If we were wise and brave we would put an end to war.
If we were wise and brave…
And now a special shout out to those Democrats who have argued against the impeachment of this outrageously criminal presidency. You, in particular, are neither wise nor brave.
If you don’t think Bush should be impeached immediately, and I do mean ASAP, I hope you’re prepared to accept your part of the responsibility for the damage he does over the next two years.
