In a recent press conference George Bush said that it would be up to future presidents to decide the future of the Iraq catastrophe. According to Bush, military operations in Iraq will continue throughout his presidency.

Which is to say that George Bush knowingly recognizes the Iraq war is his legacy. In spite of his demonstrated incompetence in a range of domestic issues --Social security, environmental protection, the Medicare drug prescription drug program and the Hurricane Katrina disaster--- it is the Iraq war on which George W. Bush will die historically. And historical death seems certain. Conclusion: The worst president in the history of the United States of America.

But Bush is tenacious. He will not admit defeat, although one very prominent and leading conservative, William F. Buckley, Jr. has asked President Bush to do just this -- admit defeat. Says Buckley,

"One can't doubt that the American objective in Iraq has failed .... Yes, but within their own counsels, different plans have to be made. And the kernel here is the acknowledgment of defeat. "

But with his life and legacy on the line, will George Bush admit defeat In Iraq? The answer is never. He, and his despicable culprit in crimes against humanity, Dick Cheney, have invested too much of themselves in this horrific disaster to back down now. For them there is no turning back. It 's human nature.

Regrettably, it 's up to Congress to take first action --that pathetic and weakling body that has caved in to every Bush wish. But failing Congressional action, which we all expect, the real power lies in the American people, whose sense of decency, justice and human dignity can in the end triumph over this horrific Bush administration travesty.

Never forget that the president serves at the will of the American people. We live in a democracy. The president is not king or monarch. He answers to you and me. In November we will have the chance to cast our ballots, our only real democratic exercise. This election must not be about local issues. There is too much in at stake for the future of the world. This must be a referendum on the presidency of George W. Bush.

These are very trying tines. May God bless us all.
