So, it turns out the lofty anti-terrorism rhetoric of Bush was little more than what some speech writer wrote to be read from a screen. . . . The man has looked over his head for much of his second term. Now, it's becoming more clear just how far. This will embolden the opposition in Iraq and could lead ultimately to the destruction of Israel.
Our war President has turned out to be a disgrace. At this point in world history, the Islamofascists look like they deserve to win. In fact, they might.
Over at NRO's corner, John Podhoretz contends that this would mean the end of the Olmert government. I'm tempted to suggest that our government, having seemingly lost its will to oppose (or even to let others oppose) our deadliest enemies, deserves the same fate.
What happened was one of the biggest failures of leadership in Presidential history. Bush supporters will claim that Bush was done in by a liberal media and the ferocious hatred of liberals and leftwingers, but that is one of the things true leadership is all about: Managing and overcoming opposition in order to achieve the necessary goals - in this case, the destruction of world Islamist terrorism and the regimes that support it.
Bush turned out to be singularly ill-equipped for this task, both by skill and by temperament. His public relations management was curiously hesitant and badly timed, and, of course, his inabilty to speak effectively in public was a gigantic handicap. His temperament, it eventually became clear, was hesitant, overly calculating, timid, and "compassionate."
Compassion has its place, but not in warfighting. The Bush we know would not have pulled the trigger on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. He abdicated the hard decisions in favor of political maneuvering and meaningless gestures.
These are the assholes that actually liked Bush! They are certainly quick to turn on him when he proves (to them) that he's a weak little chickenshit. The rest of us have known that for years. It's fun to see 'em sayin' it in print!
Hey, you neocon pussies - Think you can do better a better job? Well, go draw a pack and rifle and get the fuck to it! We'll neither miss you nor mourn you.
No stomach for that? I didn't think so. Wanta really get back at Bush for lettin' you down?
Vote Democratic in November, bitches. It'll be all the rage.
I forgot to say that these batshit crazy morons have come to the correct conclusions for all the wrong reasons, but that's better than if they didn't at all. The Chimp fell for their bullshit because that's what got him installed in office. They should have known that he's never succeeded at anything in life and never will, even with his name, his money, and lotsa help. The only thing he's inadvertently accomplished, if it can be called that, is the beginning and middle of the ruination of the United States. Bush is basically a fuckin' loser and he's taking us all down with him, damn his eyes. The neocons and Bush will get what's coming to them both if there's any justice in the world at all. It won't be very pleasant for them, but I'll dig the shit out of it.
