Is This a Hostage Situation?

I forced myself to listen to bush yesterday morning as he repeated the same things he has been saying for the last four plus years about terror and war and all the rest. He got real pissy about Congress not providing him with a shiny clean war funding bill. He told how bad it will be for the troops if his demands to Congress are not met.

In a sense he is holding the soldiers hostage. He is saying if I don't get the bill I want from Congress, I will send these soldiers back into battle when I know they aren't ready and without what they need. He so much as said it yesterday. Either he gets the bill he wants or the soldiers have to suffer. That's the bottom line.

He refuses to end the war and he'll keep right on going with it no matter what congress does and no matter the harm it does to the troops.

I saw the ass doing this, his patented, fumbling effort to do that there communication thing. Has there ever been less inarticulate and more speech impaired leader since Idi Amin? Come to think of it, big Idi had at least something different to rave about every now and then.

Why didn't this nincompoop, Dubya, just send some of his speeches from three years ago and save money and effort for those that had to come and attend to hear the same, old bull shit with the same nervous giggles and involuntary head movements of which we have become to adore so much? The Sun will start circling the earth again, like it did about 5000 yrs ago, when he and his Pitt Bull, Cheney, will be able to see what the rest of us see. The proverbial snowball will freeze in hell when these two ugly male prostitues will admit, that what they are doing is morally wrong, counter productive, dangerous, extremely stupid, deadly, criminal and even dead against their professed religion.

At least, there are some visable signs, that this Republican Emporror is starting to squirm a bit and any pain going to his direction is poetic justice and makes me feel absolutely delighted. Shame on me! ;-)

But ya got to love the guy for complaining about everyone taking a vacation.

Especially from someone who's had 405 days away from his job. Remarkable, and disgusting. How many more days 'til he's gone? ; (

He knows he is in deep kimchee and somewhere in his unrealistic world view he is beginning to understand that he has lost the trust of the American people. He is just lashing out now like a caught rat hoping to bluff Congress and the Democratic leadership into conciliation. Notice how he has reverted to using the not so subtle "democrat" instead the correct "democratic" to describe the majority. What a spoiled child.

I did, too. I watched. At one point when he was saying he would never do anything that harmed the working class, I pounded the floor. The dogs went on alert and began barking as if an armed murderer had come in. I think the dogs were right.

I agree. That's the first thing I thought of when I heard what he said about war funding bill.

Mr Bush doesn't support the troops, he holds them hostage to get his way, and if he doesn't get his way, the troops will suffer. He's corn-holed the the U.S., and now he is getting ready to corn-hole the troops. The Democrats are looking very good in this situation, and Mr Bush is looking like a pissed-off bully, who will even back stab his closest allies.

According to my Bush countdown ticker, it's 656 more days, 14 hours, 28 minutes, and x-number of seconds.

I'm glad that you watched it so I didn't have to. He's SUCH a rat-bastard!

The answer to how many more days until he's gone is "Too god damned many."

Here'saBackwards Bush calculator for your pleasure.

Backward Bush

The incredible thing to me is that he has to read even short petulant messages. It's hard to be convincing if you're reading what you supposedly feel so strongly about.

You would think that in 4 years, the Iraqi's would have stood up and taken the helm of their country.
We have done enough. I'm sick of the mideast.
I'm going to keep training young scientists ... maybe one of them will help us kick the oil habit and we can ignore this basket case region.

Bush is a petulant child. We usually are able to control petulant children, rather than make them head of state. I did not see the speech - but your take is right, he does hold our soldiers hostage.

Charlie Chaplin made a film called "The Great Dictator" which was about Hitler - and it applies well to Bush. He is a murderer, and should be tried for crimes against humanity.

I didn't watch. I can't stand his face. Everything is a macho stand-off to him. Now he's staring down Congress and it doesn't matter that's he's disastrously wrong. He's got his manhood riding on this, and he's got little-man syndrome. A terrible, pathetic combination.

He's a man, he's an idiot, and he has a Stepford robot for a wife. George Bush couldn't spell cat if you spotted him the c and the a.
Fred the cat would beat him in a spelling bee.

i think his dedication to the military would have been so much more effective if he had first applied it to his own military career.

The definition of insane comes to mind.

This is why he should have been impeached; to stop him from doing further harm.

I saw this press stint.

He's trying to blame this on Congress, and all they are doing is what the people want (election) done.

A poll released today, said that 70% of Americans want our out troops out of Iraq, but since when does this President listen to the people?

So we give Bush the money to keep the troops in Iraq, and that benefits the troops how? Seems diametrically opposed to a "win/win" situation.

I heard a snippet of the sniveling, tantroming man-child saying he'd pull the money from other programs if he didn't get what he wanted.

I'm sure he's throwing a fit that he doesn't get to invade Iran over the British sailor thing too. Diplomacy worked. Imagine that.

Why would the First Boy care? It's not as though the First Twins or the children of his friends show support for the war by volunteering.

The idiot will be even more hated than he already is if he does it. Like I said before, pulling the funding from the war will not work. The idiot will not admit to being wrong ever! He would rather have our soldiers killed in droves than to admit to being wrong.

Either he gets the bill he wants or the soldiers have to suffer.

But his real goal is to use this to bludgeon the Democrats. Today in California he mentioned how Congress should defer to the judgement of military commanders, conveniently forgetting that civilian authority is paramount in this country.

There is only one solution. The 2002 war powers resolution must be revoked.

Can't do it. At this point, whenever I har his voice, I get homicidal. I have never had such a visceral hate for anyone.
