Today he opens his present from his dad

So today is the big day. Today is the day the almost famous Iraq Study Group will allow bush to open his Christmas present. He gets to see what they suggest he does to get his ass out of the fire. Will there be anything inside this beautifully wrapped present? Will it hold some magic potion that will cure his reputation here and around the globe? Will it be a magic twanger that he can wave over his problems and make them disappear like a pizza in a crowded dorm room? Will it prevent one more death in Iraq?

Don’t bet the farm on anything of consequence emerging from today’s reveal. Chances are it will be treated just like any other fairly good advice bush has received. It’ll most likely be returned to where it came from and he’ll spend the refunded money on something else.

He doesn’t strike me as the kind of guy who will put on that damned ugly sweater the family gave him. He doesn’t seem like the sort of guy who would wear that sweater even if it made the family happy. No, I don’t think he’s of that ilk. He’s the type who would say, “that’s one damned ugly sweater”, toss it on the floor and then leave the family in tears.

It's also the anniversary of the attack on Pearl harbor. Perhaps we will have a sneak attack of some sort today?

This will end up on the floor next to the recommendations made by the 9/11 commission because no one tells the deciderer what to do.

Undeniable Liberal beat me to the draw. I think Bushie's dropped enough "hints." "I'm not going to use the [commission] report as an excuse to cut and run."

He’s the type who would say, “that’s one damned ugly sweater”, toss it on the floor and then leave the family in tears.
That is probably the most accurate description I have ever heard of our President, yet.

Honestly, at this point, I think Bush is delusional. He sees himself as a misunderstood Churchill or Truman. He believes history will judge him kindly if he only "stays the course." If we begin to get out of Viet-Raq, it won't be through any of his actions.

"He sees himself as a misunderstood Churchill or Truman."

That's funny, because when you look at it, Bush most closely resembles a Stalinist...

Yeah, but do we get our money back? We taxpayers paid for this present and I doubt it represents anything close to what we would give Bush.

Do we get our money back??? Ha, ha, ha.

Actually, it's not our money, the future gets to pay for this bullshit. The youth of this country should be very concerned.

But I'm not sure they are.

You can bet your ass that if that report shows even the slightest lean toward sanity, it's outta there. Just think about what kinda of stupid photos will come out of that one!

From everything I've read, he takes after his bitch of a mother. And you just know she'd toss that sweater aside.

From the leaks last week, doesn't sound like it will be too enlightening ; (
As previously mentioned, he'll do what he wants to do anyway, since he's done
that all along anyway ; (

And yes, the Future generations should be quite concerned as this activity "ain't"
gonna get paid for in our lifetime! ; (

The reports will tell Bush what he doesn't want to hear and that is that we have already lost and that any "solutions" are just to minimize the fallout. He will not be capable of considering his great adventure as a failure so he will continue to stay the course or worse make another "final push".

At this point, I don't think Bush would have any idea what to do with the sweater...he would have to wait for someone to tell him, explain it to him in very simple words, and then demonstrate the procedure.

Right you are, and I fully expect him to trash this report and remain the "decider".

Did you see Pappy on Olbermann, crying for Jeb? KO's take: Pappy's cryin' cause the wrong son became pretzeldent, and now Jeb(the smart hard working one) won't have a chance at it cause his big brother screwed the pooch.

I just saw the Iraq Study Group's news conference. Their recommandations are comprehensive and sound. If Bush disregards it, impeachment hearings should be the next step.

Bush looks like the kind of guy who would throw the ugly sweater on the ground and then kill his entire family for having such bad taste. He looks like the kind of guy who gets really mean when he's drunk, and really mean when he can't have a drink. He won't take advice. After he hears what the Iraq Study Group has to say, he'll mock them the way he mocked Carla Fay Tucker-- "ooh it's a bad and grave situation. Oooh, so it could become a humanitarian crisis. Don't the let the door hit you on the way out."

The same thing that everyone has been telling him.

I think he's more of a Hitler than Stalin. He's got similar levels of paranoia. He's the decider. And while I agree with Lizzy, I doubt anyone in Congress has the real cajones to start the impeachment process.

I think of W. as the head cheerleader, and Cheney as the powerful "coach". Cheney is really running the game, and W. just jumps around, smirking and shrieking. Cheney can run things with relative impunity; it's win/win for him, since even if somehow W. got impeached and thrown out of office, Cheney would then be officially in charge, which he'd hate, since he'd have to be out in public more often.
How can anyone get after Cheney? Expose him? It has to be him behind everything, W. just isn't sharp enough for huge day-to-day operations.
Good grief. We are still so fucked.

There's nothing there but stay the course and throw another trillion on the Iraq barby

Bush won't listen anyway. He's never listened to his dad, he won't start now.

Bush will stall for 2 more years then wash his hands clean and sail into the sunset to his private ranch in Parguay

Mission Accompished

Carlyle Groups networth has quadruppled

Halliburton's stock has quadrupled

Bush has secured his family wealthy for the next 3 generations. When its over he'll be able to rest easy, play golf, and ride his bike. That's what he wants to do. But he had to put his time in to do his share in increasing the family networth.

He did a great job too.

These people hate America. They are globalists hellbent on destroying America; destroying the middle class.

By the time Americans realize this, it will be too late.

Who the hell is going to pay back the $9 trillion in debt? Who the hell is going to stop the $400 billion deficit spending?

Uncle Sam will knock on your children's door and your grandchildren's door asking for that money because you got duped and burned by robber barons who stole your tax dollars from under your nose and fled the country.

Did you see Pappy on Olbermann, crying for Jeb?

We were cracking up watching that last night. I could hear him thinking, "I can't believe the stupid one is running the country".

The Study Group has spoken. And Bush's response is..."it's time for a vacation!"

Sigh, you've all got it right- after careful consideration of each recommendation (and convincedof the truth of the old saw "Those who can't do teach"), he'll say he's doing things differently as recommended ny the ISG and needs another $250B to train the Iraqis to provide peace and stability in their country (which, of course, we could not do)

Here are some sweaters for him. I think the study will be ignored.

I'd like to see GWB cry like that, but not from happiness.

Anthony Arnove On Iraq Study Group: "Report Offers
Only A Slight Correction For a Policy That Needs
Fundamental Reversal"
----------------------------------------------------

AMY GOODMAN: We are talking to Congressmembers Lynn
Woolsey and Barbara Lee. They are outside the Capitol
Building. And we're going to bring in now Anthony
Arnove, the author of Iraq: The Logic of Withdrawal.
He's also editor of Iraq Under Siege and co-editor
with Howard Zinn of Voices of a People's History of
the United States.

Anthony Arnove, your response to the report and what
you think needs to happen now?

ANTHONY ARNOVE: Well, I think the report offers only a
slight correction of course for a policy that needs
fundamental reversal. We need to bring the troops
home, not to talk about prolonging the presence of the
United States in Iraq. This report of the Iraq Study
Group lays out keeping troops, not only combat troops,
in Iraq until 2008, but well beyond that.

And, in effect, it continues a policy that the Bush
administration has put forward, of we will stand down
as the Iraqis stand up, and it suggests that there's
somehow a technical solution to the problem of Iraq,
if we just had better training of the Iraqi security
forces. But the problem isn't a technical problem,
it's a political problem. The Iraqis want the US
troops to leave. They reject a foreign occupation. And
as long as US troops are there, the US troops will be
a source of instability and will fuel sectarian
conflict, rather than dampen it, and they will fuel
the kind of violence which we see escalating and
getting worse every day in Iraq.

AMY GOODMAN: And what Harry Reid is calling for, the
Democratic leader in the Senate?

ANTHONY ARNOVE: He has come in and said that we should
spend $75 billion more on the military. And we see
also, of course, as you mentioned, Pelosi and Reid
both saying that the idea of cutting off funds for
this war is off the table. I think we have to put that
back on the table, and we have to push for a proposal
for immediate withdrawal, cutting off funds for this
war. http://pdamerica.org/petition/mcgovern-petition.php
