Guess who's coming to my town?


Recommended Posts

Our esteemed (cough, cough) president is to be in my town later today.  Depending on the route they take from the airport, I may even be able to watch the presidential motorcade go by.  yay.  If I had the money, I'd be getting the fuck out of Dodge for the day.  I wonder how many times he'll mention 9-11 in his speech.  Or whether he'll once again try to convince the public the Iraq was involved in 9-11. 

I love my country, but I fear my government.  Now, more so than ever.

Preface: I am an ostrich when it comes to politics. I'm also a liberal.

My George Bush experience--I was working as a Sheet Metal pre-apprentice in downtown Portland for a brief time. The job we were working on was practically kitty corner to the hotel where he stays (or so they tell me). Since we were on the job bright and early, we were allowed within the barrier zone (escorted by police-types).

We all stood transfixed as the president drove by - just one story away through a building that had no glass in the windows yet.

As bizarre as it sounds, it was kind of thrilling.

I think I like him as much as I like Tom Cruise! 

There is *one* good thing that can be said for Tom Cruise.  He isn't the president of the United States.

In his speech this morning, ol' GW Bush actually had the nerve to compare the war in Iraq with the Revolutionary War!  Anyone here see a resemblence?  Anyone?

Anyone?

Thought not.

There was a Republican politician there with him.  Shelley Moore Capito.  The GOP has been grooming her for a run against Sen. Byrd.  I'll be voting for Byrd again.  Bush hates him, which has to be a good thing.  Shoot, I'll probably still be voting for Sen. Byrd when he's dead.  He's one of the few with the balls to stand up to Bush. 

Also onstange with Bush: former governer Arch Moore, a man who served over two years in federal prison for mail fraud.  Oh, and he's Capito's father.

At least my son had fun watching the helicopter flying overhead as the cavalcade went to and from the site of the speech.

Yipee.

Neither is Bush (see under Cheney, Dick).

You don't see the resemblance? [/sarcasm]

These people associate with crooks, murderers, and other types of criminals, liars, cheats -- you name it. They wouldn't be president (yep, the whole board that makes up Bush's brain) if they didn't have that element in their circle.

I wish Byrd were a little younger so he'd be sure to stick around with a sharp mind. I love his ballsiness and class. A guy that old has a lot of perspective to offer. (Far be it from Dubya to actually learn anything from anyone, much less have the humility to try.) Hopefully he'll live and serve till 100 like that Repub Nosferatu, Strom Thurmond.

Absolutely. There's...ummm...and...uhhhh

Yeah, there's no resemblance whatsoever. If anything we more closely resemble the British, but even that is a stretch.

What is both sad and humorous is what a paper tiger Bush has shown us to be. For all his rhetoric and all the Fox News folks that were ready for us to invade Syria and Iran, it turns out we have more than we can handle in Iraq. Iran has already publically stated that they do not fear an American invasion and why should they?

North Korea doesn't have much to fear either, do they? Not from us anyway. The Chinese are about the only ones with the manpower to invade there. Hell, we don't even scare the damn Sudanese enough to put an end to the genocide in Darfur. After all, what are we going to do? Give them a stern talking to?

OK, got to stop before I piss myself off even more.
