The Mess of Our Administration

Look what we have done!!! We have created a mess of epic proportions in Iraq and I don't think our President gives a damn!!!

We have gone into a country in which we have zero understanding both religiously and culturally and tried to make them a "model of democracy". When in reality, we are murdering them!!! How can America stand by and let this happen? My frustration is overflowing to a point I feel as if I am going mad. How come no one is stopping this madman? Do people not realize he is going to destroy our country and is jeopardizing our safety???

The President is just fueling the fire for all Muslim nations to despise America and honestly, I can't blame them. I realize that Saddam Hussein needed to be removed from power but there was a much better way to go in and do it"Did Mr. Bush even bother to try and understand the culture of the Mid East before going in and forcefully implementing a political structure modeled after Westerners??? Imagine if a Muslim Nation tried to come in to American and force thousands of years of culture, ideals and religion upon Americans" would you react? My guess is you wouldn't take it lying down!!! Why should they?

The president has his hand in way too big a cookie jar folks and he is in no way equipped mentally, militarily or otherwise to handle the domestic or global ramifications. I am ranting today, I am mad. So many things are wrong with this picture it isn't even funny.

Our President has offered to go in and rebuild a sacred Sunni Shrine that was destroyed in a civil uprising that is going to explode in rapturous proportions, but can't even be bothered with rebuilding our own nation. We need to help Americans who are still living in vile squalor in the South!!!! I AM ANGRY!!!!! I am not saying that the Sunni Shrine does not deserve to be rebuilt, after all, America lent a helping hand in it's destruction but, in no way, should that be offered until all Americans have clean, healthy and safe living conditions. Yes GW, that includes a freakn' pot to piss in (literally)!!!!

All this of course is happening as our fearless President was just informed that six of our Ports will now be secured by that's right an Arab company!!! To the best of my knowledge, these Ports already had huge security flaws to begin with but hey, who am I to say"let's just hand them over to our "purported" enemy!!! Hell, the Administration even made a secret agreement with Dubai Ports World "not to require state-owned Dubai Ports World to keep copies of its business records on U.S. soil, where they would be subject to orders by American courts. It also did not require the company to designate an American citizen to accommodate requests by the government." (see Not to mention George, I am sure there are many Americans who have recently lost their jobs who would be more than willing to secure the safety of our Ports doing a job that will in turn help our economy by keeping work in America.

It's time to step up to the plate America , now is the time say we made a mistake electing George Bush to a second term and we must hold him accountable for his actions, there is no shame in admitting we were wrong, the shame should lie with those that keep quiet for the next 2 years
