And people wonder why I say he's not my president
Maybe it has something to do with the fact that he thinks I hate America.
NEW YORK Meeting briefly with reporters Monday aboard Air Force One, Trent Duffy, a White House spokesman subbing for Scott McClellan, said that President Bush believes that those who want the U.S. to begin to change course in Iraq do not want America to win the overall "war on terror."
Speaking to reporters, Duffy said that Bush "can understand that people don't share his view that we must win the war on terror, and we cannot retreat and cut and run from terrorists, but he just has a different view."
This is where I would normally go on a profanity laced tirade, telling the administration to go roger itself with a number of objects ill-suited to the task. But I'm going to refrain, I'm going to restrain myself, and you know why?
Because Bush just basically called well over half of the country anti-American, including increasing numbers from his own party. The ultimate chicken-hawk called over half the country he claims to lead a bunch of cowards.
Bush says he thinks that if we pull out of Iraq now, we'll weaken the US. Well, a lot of us believe that he did that already, when he committed troops to a useless and wasteful war waged for political gain.
So no profanity, no angry ranting this time. There's no need for it. We all know who the real cowards are--they're all at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington D.C. The more they call us cowards, the more evident it becomes that they're only trying to divert attention away from their words and actions.
