Bush is making his first post election adress and the first sentence out of his mouth was about Saddamn Hussein.
I really dislike this country. Come January the republicans are going to blitz the U.S. with bullshit tax cuts, homeland security atrocities, and pushing for a 'disarming' of Iraq. Those are the main goals he's just outlined.

I'm so angry listening to this man read like a mildly retarded 10 year old, listening to him insist that we need to 'pass meaningful legislation to help people improve their lives' and in the same breath mention help for construction projects, war, and homeland security.

"they've got a waaaaaaaall in china... it's a thousand miles long.... to keep out the foreigners who made it strong...."

I can't believe how badly the democrats dropped the ball in this election. They just didn't *bother* to push an alternative to *anything* that the republicans have had to say for fear that those high numbers in the president's opinion polls would bite them in the ass.
If any of the candidates had had the BALLS to say "no war, no more homeland security push, no bullshit tax cuts that mean *nothing* for real economic relief" they would have had a damned chance. But since they just... failed to speak the fuck up they just disenfranchised a huge number of us. And I hope, I hope I hope that in two years that will be remembered. I hope that the voting public doesn't just choose between the evils and will push for a CHOICE in representatives.

Oh, and also vote out bellicose asshole who is in the white house because his daddy had some judges in his pocket.

I'm a little pissed off at the moment, don't mind me.

'we will find the enemy and smoke them out'

I don't mind the tax cuts, but the homeland security and lets-get-Saddam rantings are rather insane.
If you notice, Bush and company plays the game like everybody who lives in Iraq is Saddam. Reminds
me of this joke:

A man walks into a bar and sees Bush and Powell having a heated conversation. He walks over and says
"Wow..are you really President Bush and Mr. Powell?".
"Yes" says Bush.
"What are you guys talking about?" asks the man.
"Well," says Dubya, "we were talking about completely bombing a couple million Iraqi civilians, and one
gorgeous blonde."
The man pauses for a moment. "Why would you bomb the blonde?"
Bush turns to Powell and says "You see? I told you noone would give a shit about a couple million Iraqis"

laugh if you like, but i love the song "something so right." fyi, the quote is:

They've got a wall in China
It's a thousand miles long
To keep out the foreigners they made it strong


pretty much a commentary on bush's foreign policy in a nutshell.

i haven't been this disgusted politically since 1984, when all the stations called the election by 8:15 in favor of reagan. but that's a whole other story.

fyi, I dig the song too, and quoted it because of the exact reason you just gave. Never saw a lyrics sheet on it and haven't heard it in years. I honestly thought he said "that".


I don't think I've ever been this disgusted by a standing president.
I was born in 1977 so while I grew up with Reagan, it wasn't until I was older that I *realized* what I'd been growing up with.
