State of the Nation: The Bush Treason

Last week, President Bush gave Congress his last State of the Union speech. Proving that the presidency erodes a man--he looked worn, haggard, colorless and beaten.  His words rang vacant, hollow and scratched like fingernails across the chalkboard of Americans’ sense of honesty.

 

In truth, he looked every bit the part of a new book: “The Bush Tragedy” by Jacob Weisberg.  Newsweek reported, “As Bush’s presidency nears its end, prospects for the Republicans look bleak…GOP candidates running in the wake of his wreckage can learn much from his failures…he squandered the peoples’ trust.”

 

On January 20, 2001, he raised his right hand and placed his left hand on the Holy Bible, “I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of the President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”  (Article 2, section 1)

He repeated the same ceremony for a second time.

 

Concerning the basics of our U.S. Constitution: he lied to us, he violated his oath of office and created a boondoggle of a legacy as he mounted $3 trillion onto our national debt.  He oversaw the loss of millions of jobs, accelerating trade deficits and foisted a complete fraud on us as to national security from terrorism with his failure to secure our borders.

 

What about how he affected American families?  What did he do to us on a personal level?  What didn’t he do to preserve, protect and enhance our lives?

 

I’ll tell you how!  Last week, in Denver, Colorado, 21 year old U.S. Army soldier Duncan Crookston died after five months of misery.  He suffered both legs blown off, his right arm amputated and his left hand cut from his body.  He suffered horrific burns.  His young wife sat by his bedside for five months only to see Crookston’s life slip away. 

 

That same sickening scenario repeated itself 3,900 times in the past six years since George Bush declared an unlawful war against a sovereign nation--after he strutted across an aircraft carrier with a banner that read, “Mission Accomplished!”  It means 3,900 family members trusted Bush to carry out his oath of office, but instead, he deceived them and us--into a vain war.  He maintains his corrupt war with no plan for withdrawal—only more death and chaos.
