One, if not the most, obnoxious quotes of this week.

“In other words, one of the things that I expect to see is the Iraqis take the lead and show the American people that they're willing to do the hard work necessary to secure their democracy, and our job is to help them.
So my first reaction on this report from the battlefield is that the Iraqis are beginning to show me something.”
NPR

This was bush responding to a question in regard to the battle at Najaf. Of course no one is sure yet just what the hell actually happened there. We are fairly sure that the Iraqis had to call in US air support and we dropped some big mother bombs in the area to stop whatever was happening.

Bush is talking about the Iraqis as if they were his team and he was the coach. His boys are beginning to show him something, some spunk, some game. They may have potential to make a winning team.

What the hell is he? Show him something?

This isn’t for your entertainment, sir. This isn’t for your amusement. Real human beings are dying while you are waiting to be shown something. Watching from afar, as you are, perhaps you haven’t noticed that.

It's just a game of toy soldiers to Pretzelnut McAwol and the remaining ilk that still support him. AAARRRRGGGHH!!!

Why can't our representatives do something about him? Certainly, there's no positive reason to let him go on?

I'm getting more disappointed by the day! ; (

The translation about the Najaf piece is that without U.S. support, the Iraqi security forces are incapable of suppressing violence from the insurgents. The bottom line is that we are stuck there unless we want to see Iraq reduced to the same tribal society it has been for over a thousand years. Maybe one day we'll learn that standing in a river and telling it to run upstream won't overcome the laws of physics.

If only there was some magic dust that sould be sprinkled on him to make him vanish! What a joy that would be.

The words that come out of that stupid, smirking mouth. Makes me want to smack him really hard, so he'll be serious and sensible for just a second. Really, I know it's impossible.

Sometimes I think he just talks because he likes the sound of his own voice and isn't even aware of the words coming out of his mouth!

As he becomes more and more marginalized, as his stolen power is jerked out from under his feet and the whole world lets him know just how much they love him, He will get more and more desperate and do more extream things to prove that he's still "the decider".

I'm still trying to figure out how in the hell Bush thinks Americans have any right to demand that the Iraqi people prove anything to us. WE invaded THEIR country ALLEGEDLY to LIBERATE them--which I assume is supposed to mean EMPOWER THEM to run their own lives and country. Did Bush announce his conditions ahead of time..."by the way, we'll only give you back your country if you show you're grown-up enough to do it on your own"??? What a condescending jackass.

At this point, "overreach" should replace "Walker" as Dumbya's middle name.

Bush is even more delusional than Cheney. Maybe Bush will show us his invisible friend who helps him make decisions.

Ludicrous isn't it? Of all the people who are not... on Bush's team.

Democracy Now has a story on it. After the replay of a 2004 Molly Ivins interview. It seems that this "Battle" against some "Messianic Group" could of been a long standing feud of different sects. The American Air Strikes may have been called to help coverup the slaughter of the women and children. The DN report includes an interview with one of the Doctors who treated the wounded.

Peace.

I don't know what to say about Dubya. He has no empathy for the soldiers over there. Regardless of his political misgivings. A man who can't feel for another human being is seriously screwed up.

He's using his "normal folk speak" to relate to his uneducated, NASCAR loving base who will vote blindly for anyone promising "tax cuts" and who has issues completing multi-syllable words.

He's a sociopath. Seriously. He cannot feel empathy for anyone other than himself.

Remember the hours after 9/11, when he was hiding out? He made this statement: "They know where I am. Come and get me" when told it would be unwise to return to the white house yet. It had to be explained to him, it wasn't "about him." It was about the country, and keeping our form of government intact.

But this "they're starting to show me something" is Evangelical page one. ALL of them, without exception, see the rest of humanity as their personal tools to remodel the world with.

Old Blue, I'm not so sure... If Bush did that, he would be showing us "God"... heh...

I agree with Old Broad. Bush is incapable of empathy. He seems to not have a clue of what tragedy is, or how his war might affect at least a few families in Iraq. If someone told him he ought to try putting himself in someone else's shoes, he might just say "Now why should I do that?"

Truffle, re. his middle name, I would replace "Walker" with "Wanker"! George Wanker Bush! I think that has a GREAT ring to it!

This is an interesting article. It takes some time to read, but there are some very good points made:

Speaking of mind-numbing, did you hear what Bush said the other day?? "I like to be around people that keep expectations low,"

Well, that's certainly apparent sir.
