If Not Impeachment, At Least Boycott His Records

"Some seem to believe we should negotiate with terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along. We have heard this foolish delusion before. As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an American senator declared: "Lord, if only I could have talked to Hitler, all of this might have been avoided." We have an obligation to call this what it is - the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history."  G.W. Bush, Israeli Knesset, 5/15/08
Wow. Overseas, in another country, the President demeaned the man who may well become  our next President...with our men and women in harm's way, yet.
But he not only blasphemed Barack Obama, he also took a cheap shot at his own administration.   Besides Secretary of Defense Robert Gates already on record saying we need to talk with Iran, Bush's own team has held negotiations with North Korea. 
I imagine the repercussions will be dire.
No doubt, Senator Lieberman will find the President using the Israeli Knesset as a platform for American politics and Nazi comparisons to be, at the least, in bad taste.
But wait till the broadcast Lords of Loud get a hold of him.
Clear Channel refusing to play his speeches.
Rush Limbaugh calling on listeners not to buy tickets to his fundraisers.
Bill O'Reilly demanding the President to apologize.
It will be hell to pay.
I say we go even further.  Let's not let  President Bush back into the country!
It won't be easy, but impeachment wouldn't be any easier and it's not like he'll be going hunting with the Vice President any time soon.
I'm not saying we need to build a fence, but we could make it a bit more difficult for him to get through customs.  Go through his baggage.  After what he's done to this country he has plenty.  And go though it slowly.  Very slowly.  Make it last.  At least until January 20.  
If not already clear and just so you know, I'm ashamed the President of the United States is from the United States.
Where is Natalie Maines when we need her?
