Well, no kidding, Georgie!

"You may not agree with some of the tough decisions I have made, but I hope you can agree that I was willing to make the tough decisions."

Were do I begin....Tough decisions??? Were all of those jaw-droppingly stupid decisions he made during his reign of error all that tough to make? This guy is so piss-in-your-pants funny! Sometimes I have the fantasy that his speechwriter is a veteran comedy writer for Your Show of Shows with Sid Caesar.

"When the challenges to our prosperity emerged, we rose to meet them. Facing the prospect of a financial collapse, we took decisive measures to safeguard our economy. These are very tough times for hard working families, but the toll would be far worse if we had not acted."

The time has come for this man and his economic advisers to face some very nasty realities. We wouldn't be in this mess today had these bastards not stolen the election from Al Gore in 2000. As has been proven too many times to count throughout our history, whenever the plutocracy - the Right Wing - has seized control of all three branches of our government, they drove this country into the economic ditch every single time. Bush has only proved it yet again. Congratulations, George.

"Our enemies are patient and determined to strike again....We must resist complacency. We must keep our resolve. And we must never let down our guard....Every morning, I received a briefing on the threats to our nation. And I vowed to do everything in my power to keep us safe. "

Six words: "BIN LADEN DETERMINED TO STRIKE INSIDE U.S." Need I elaborate? I didn't think so.

"When people live in freedom they do not willingly choose leaders who pursue campaigns of terror."

I'm curious. Does this knucklehead even know the meaning of the word, "irony"?

"Like all who have held this office before me, I have experienced setbacks [Really? No kidding, George!] There are things I would do differently if given the chance. Yet I have always acted with the best interests of our country in mind."

Did he really have "the best interests of our country in mind" when he committed the stupidest military blunder in the history of this once-great nation when he invaded the (like it or not) sovereign nation of Iraq?

Did he really have "the best interests of our country in mind" when he plundered our national treasure by giving a tax cut to a class of people who already had more money than they knew what to do with?

Did he really have "the best interests of our country in mind" when he went off to party at a political fundraiser while the people of New Orleans were drowning?

Did he really have "the best interests of our country in mind" when he authorized the countless violations the Geneva Conventions and allowed combat detainees to be tortured?

Did he really have "the best interests of our country in mind" when he destroyed decades of foreign policy and diplomatic precedents?

Did he really have "the best interests of our country in mind" when he allowed his henchmen to reveal the identity of covert CIA agent Valerie Plaime for no other reason than to punish her husband Joe Wilson for telling the truth about the non-existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq ?
