Could I just say that I am fed up and rising with our feckless leader?
On this fourth anniversary of the beginning of George's Bloody War, he has these things to say to the American people, with explanatory comments by Barbara:
"Four years after this war began, the fight is difficult, but it can be won. It will be won if we have the courage and resolve to see it through." Unfortunately there is more.
The "courage and resolve" thing is old and stale and false, George, and it is offensive coming out of the mouth of a serial liar.
"As Iraqis work to keep their commitments, we have important commitments of our own."
For example, we are committed to getting Halliburton safely relocated to Dubai and keeping dead and bloody soldiers under wraps so as not to offend my mother's delicate sensibilities.
"Today, the world is rid of Saddam Hussein, and a tyrant has been held to account for his crimes by his own people."
Shhhh. Are you hearing footsteps, George?
"The new strategy will need more time to take effect. And there will be good days and there will be bad days ahead."
Up days and down days. In days and out days. Sunny days and dark days. Summer days and winter days. Oh. My. Dog.
"And whatever our differences in Washington, our troops and their families deserve the appreciation and the support of our entire nation."
Think Walter Reed. Think of the Minnesotan who was allegedly refused psychiatric help by the VA, subsequently killing himself. Just think!
If things are progressing so well in Iraq, how about this? How about George and Dick put together an excellent adventure, flying into Baghdad under something other than cover of darkness? Stay a while. Mix it up with the locals. Cue: "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?"
