I’m not really interested in turning this into a Bush-bashing thread, we seem to have enough of those…not that I want it to stop!
But I’m interested in getting some clarity on a few issues. Mind you, I’m just some guy who has other things to do than to focus 100% on politics and world affairs so my facts might not be quite in order. Sure, it’s important stuff in the larger picture, but from MY dawn till MY dusk, I got matters that I have to attend to that I can directly affect (kids, work, etc.)
So don’t flame me for this but:
Why is there no meaningful attempt to remove GW Bush from the presidency? Feel free to add reasons of your own, but I seem to be under the impresion that:
- Alienating the UN by an essentially unilateral decision to invade & occupy another country
- Under the premise of disarming said country of weapons that Hey! aren’t there! (either because they weren’t or even worse–because we lost track of them) and then to continue to
- Suck us into an open-ended urban combat war that we can’t afford and then
- Granting HUGE contracts to HUGE corporations owned by HUGE members of his own administration
should at least raise SOME eyebrows? Isn’t this kind of stuff a little more detremental to the welfare of the nation than, say, getting a hummer and then lying about it in order to avoid further personal embarassment? Don’t these actions serve to HARM our ability to coexist with any degree of credibility with the governments of other nations? And (one more thing) don’t they also affect our own national security by further inciting different agencies that already hate our guts?
What gives? Are we REALLY that afraid of this administration that we won’t even investigate it?
