Can I believe my eyes? The Star reports President Bush is concerned that the election of a Democrat in November could harm our “peace and prosperity.”
Is the president now so totally removed from reality that he is unaware we are currently at war, with troops in the field, in Iraq and Afghanistan?
Does he now know his administration seems hell-bent on provoking another war with Iran?
Is he unable to understand the financial reports that demonstrate he has doubled our national debt during his administration?
Does he not know his administration has been responsible for lackluster job creation, a sub-prime mortgage crisis affecting homeowners nationwide, and an economy slipping into a recession?
Our nation will only have to suffer under his incompetent ignorance for less than a year now, but perhaps it is not too late to impeach this fool, remove him from office, and subject him to full punishment for the laws he has broken.
War on terror
Vladimir Lenin once said, “The purpose of terrorism is to terrorize.” Look at what it has done to us: We have wire-tapped our citizens, barricaded our borders and impeded our travel if we have fingernail clippers, breast milk or a Bic. And who knew shoes were so deadly?
We have kidnapped uncharged persons and “renditioned” them to secret prisons for torture. We have failed others in Gitmo, calling them “enemy combatants,” which somehow magically strips them of the barest of human rights.
We waterboard, but it is not torture, because the administration says it’s not.
And none of this is our business because disclosing these facts “would endanger national security.”
All this in the name of “keeping America safe.”
This is the land of the terrified.
If the purpose of terrorism is to terrorize, it seems we are not winning the “war on terror.”
