Bush, The Decider, Decides Stuff in Crawford

Today is the big ass information super duper push and surge to end all . . . oh, fuck it.

Bush doesn't care. He doesn't even get that there will be five or six more American deaths a day while he waits for an appropriate "news cycle" to spin around in which he is going to release his words from the mountaintop of decidering and reveal that:

HE'S JUST GOING TO DO WHAT EVER THE FUCK HE GODDAMN WELL PLEASES. HE DOESN'T CARE ABOUT ANYTHING ELSE BUT PROVING TO US THAT EVEN IF HE CAN'T SAY HE'S RIGHT, HE NEVER, EVER, HAS TO SAY THAT HE WAS WRONG ABOUT ANYTHING.

I find no reason for any hope at all for the man, or the country while he's still around.

If they want to talk doing the Agnew on Cheney, then going after Bush hammer and tongs, I'm there. Otherwise, I got horses to feed.

MB, huzzah! And oddjob, I agree that the criminals in the Dumya admin should be investigated - starting with Cheney and Rumsfeld -but I want the black mark of impeachment to be on Dipshit's record as well. Fuck whether the votes to remove him are in the senate, they weren't there when Clinton was impeached, but it fucked with whatever legacy Clinton may have been able to eke out, and now he'll be remembered for being impeached for lying about getting blown rather than for anything he may have done for the country - let the asshole join Johnson and Clinton as being held in such disdain by Congress to be brought up before it on charges. On the other hand, maybeDumya's legacy should rightfully be the debacle in Iraq standingon its own without the taint of impeachment - I don't think history will ever see it as anything more than what most of America sees it as now - a misguided, dishonest fuck up.

They have made it very clear that no decisions will be made today. You know why? Because he's already made his fucking decision and this is all for show. Yeah, he's "working hard" being the decider but waiting until the spotlights are just the right angle before his next photo op. He's going to send more lives into the hell hole and then bring them home in wooden boxes.

For most of this month I've been working with and around my mother. She has very debilitating Parkinson's syndrome. It messes with her mobility and thought process. Her main line of defense against the onslaught of this disease is to pretend like nothing's wrong. A lot of the time it requires extra work on the part of her caregivers. It's important to her that it not LOOK like what it IS. So, when she really needs a wheelchair, it's better to use a walker, it's better to use a grocery cart than a walker. We don't need to put up rails in her hallways, all kinds of things that would make her life easier aren't done because it would appear like the person who lives in her house needs assistance.

Bush, on the other hand, rather than ever tell us the truth of why he had to rush into the invasion of Iraq (and at this point he might not even be able to dredge the reasons up from the muck of lies he's spread) just makes up whatever sounds good at that moment. Be it spreading democracy, or whatever. The difference between my mom's delusions and Bush's are that with Bush's lies, people are dying. Every day. No matter what he's done in the last five years, it's gotten worse. I find no reason to hold out any hope that he will find a way out of this mess. It's too far gone. It would also require acknowledging things that he has, so far, absolutely refused to acknowledge. Even the Baker commission keeps talking about the "Iraqi government" like it was a viable, representative body capable of the tasks before it. bullshit. The talk about the "Iraqi army" or the "Iraqi security forces" like they were anything but pawns in the bigger, meaner game of civil war. Hell, things have gotten to the point where it's almost hard to describe it as "war." It's much, much closer to full on psychotic two-year-old-tantrum anarchy.

one of the things this new congress can do is start to deny monetary aid to the war effort. If I remember that is what happened with Vietnam. I support that move.
