Misson Accomplished….?

I don’t like to discuss politics or religion because they are such hot-button issues. However… when I read articles like the one I read yesterday from FreeRepublic.com, I feel something has to be said.

The article is titled, “Bush Warns of Iraq Disaster“. My first thought when I saw that? Gee, Mr. President, I thought the Iraq war was already a disaster.

 

However, he sees it as a disaster not now but WHEN a democrat takes over his seat and changest the course of the war. You see, in Dubya’s eyes, a change to the war will be bad. As opposed to blindly staying the course and watching our dollar disappear into nothingness, and more ‘insurgents’, ‘terrorists’ and the like enter what was a stable – albeit torturous – country in the Middle East.

 

Saddam was evil, there’s no question. And the Iraqi people deserved to be liberated. But not on the pretense of a 9/11 or Al Qaeda link. Was Bush lied to? Of course not, he says it himself. He wasn’t misled. In the linguist contortionists own words – “’Misled’ is a strong word, it almost connotes some kind of intentional.” The statement begs the question… Intentional what, Mr. President?

 

Personally, I think the answer is clear. And no, I don’t think the president was misled, but rather the president DID the misleading.  

 

After all the horror, all the fear and bloodshed, I have to hand it to this president for doing his part. See… in case you weren’t aware… as a way to personally acknowledge the sacrifices of our soldiers who have given up their lives, and their families who have given up their loved ones to this war, he, the President of the United States of America has… well… given up golf.

 

It clearly states this in the article.

 

“I don’t want some mom whose son may have recently died to see the commander in chief playing golf,” he (George Bush) said. “I feel I owe it to the families to be in solidarity as best as I can with them. And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal.”

 

In solidarity as best he can with them? As if giving up a sport is a true sacrifice when compared to lost innocence, lost limbs and lost lives.

 

If this administration were not already an embarrassment and burden America must bear for generations, we now have this to add. It’s as if the president himself were trying to make a mockery of the very office he holds and the very country he represents. 

 

Congratulations, Mr. President. Mission accomplished.

  • Debbie, you hit this Iraqi war situation of the head! I couldn’t had said it better. I agree that Saddam was a horrible man against his own people. Saddam was too self serving to link up with Al Qaeda and the tragedy of 9/11. Either Bush was misled or he was misleading.

  • I voted for Bush the first time around. I was even proud of how he handled 9/11. But shortly thereafter I came to believe that he had his own agenda and it had NOTHING to do with the good of the American people. I now am a firm believer that the misleading was all done by him.

    Unbelievable that he compares human sacrifice to giving up golf. I’m embarrassed that I helped put him in office in 2000.

  • I’m sure the troops are suitably impressed with the president’s sacrifice – NOT! I have to wonder if this man has any idea of how that sounds to ordinary people. His dad wasn’t the only member of the family born with a silver foot in his mouth!

  • Rhonda,
    Yup. You understand it just right. Amazing, isn’t it? Sad, but not very surprising, I must say.

    Laura,
    You’re forgiven. 😉

    Linda,
    I don’t think he has any idea how his comments sound to ordinary people. And I’d bet he doesn’t even care to know.
