Takes one to know one

President Bush lamented the deaths of 14 Marines in Iraq calling the deadly attack a 'grim reminder' America is still at war, as he addressed the American Legislative Exchange Council meeting in Grapevine, Texas, near Dallas, Wednesday, Aug. 3, 2005.

Yeah. He looks alllll broken up about that.

I'm amazed he was able to take a little time away from the five week vacation he "earned."

Bush: U.S. to Stay in Iraq Despite Deaths

Bush, if anything, has at least proven that ghosts cannot exist. Otherwise, he wouldn't be getting a wink of sleep at night, what with all the groaning, dishes being thrown around, and evil clown dolls under his bed.

The president, facing a grim and growing death toll, also said new threats of even more violence from al-Qaida's second-in-command would not intimidate the United States into retreat.

Okay, I get the whole prick-waving "we will not be intimidated" thing. I get it. But wouldn't a responsible man at least be able to admit that our strategy is not working, and we must therefore change tactics? Bush is so terrified of admitting failure, he's unable to change strategy. He would rather march straight ahead in red coats than admit, even in slight terms, that he may have made a bad decision somewhere along the way. Remember during the debates when asked if he could name (I believe it was three, memory's a little fuzzy here as I know he was asked this more than once) three mistakes that he has made while being President, he couldn't admit to even one?

That is not how a President acts. He is being incredibly pig-headed, and it's costing even more lives.

There is nothing wrong with changing tactics. If you want to stay the course, fine. (For the record, I'm a little leery of picking up and leaving Iraq... I hate seeing what's happening over there now, but I can't imagine how Iraq and the rest of the world would turn against us if we left Iraq a smoking crater.) But please, admit that what we are doing is not working, and do something about it. We can no longer stay the course, you asshole.

At the same time Thursday, the U.S. military announced in Iraq that four more service members had been killed in action but also insisted American troops were making progress against insurgents.

"We will stay the course, we will complete the job in Iraq," Bush said in Texas as a videotape by Ayman al-Zawahri, al-Qaida's No.2, was broadcast around the world.

Stay the course! Stay the course! Awk! Awk! Cracker? Cracker?

I want you to say this out loud. "We are not making progress against the insurgents."

The first step is admitting you have a problem.

"They're terrorists and they're killers and they will kill innocent people ... so they can impose their dark vision on the world," Bush said as he stood alongside Colombian President Alvaro Uribe who was visiting at Bush's ranch in Texas.

"They then return to their swamp hedquarters with the rest of the Legion of Doom," he added.

I'm getting really, really sick of this evil wizard talk. These people are not out to steal all the gold from Fort Knox, harness the sun's rays for their death beams, abduct people for anal probing, or steal the fucking Goblet of Fire. The phrase "the terrorists hate America because they hate freedom" is empty and meaningless. There are motivations behind Anti-American sentiment, and every day, Mister Bush, you motivate more.

Bush said if terrorists think they can prevail in the Middle East, "they must not have understood the nature of our country. ... As I have told the American people, people like Zawahri have an ideology that is dark, dim, backwards."


You, Mister Bush, have the ideology that is "dark, dim, backwards."

Your ideology is contrary to everything America should stand for. You have made it your mission, since stealing your way into the Presidency, to fuck the poor, coddle the rich, hinder the freedom of speech, disenfranchise voters, cripple and cow the media, destroy the environment, blacken our reputation throughout the world, make enemies of friends, break the law, slaughter innocents, send over 1800 Americans to their deaths on a lie, and cause your citizens to live in a constant state of fear.

You, Mister Bush, are the terrorist.

Takes one to know one.

Now watch this drive.
