Skip to comments.Bush's Nonsense Coming To An End (Major-Mega Barf Alert!)
Posted on 03/03/2006 5:48:30 AM PST by texianyankee
Well, it has finally happened. Americans are regaining their senses, and the cycle of ignorance that has gripped this nation for the past five years is relinquishing its hold.
Seeing the end in sight, the rats have begun to jump ship and retreat into their holes, along with their media pundits, Barbie dolls and think-tank experts. It seems Americans have had enough of the "fair and balanced" news and the policies that caused their mental constipation.
In record time, the United States has been transformed from a free and secure nation, loved and respected by much of the world, to one that is less secure and less free. And while radical and fringe terrorist groups in 2001 might have had an ax to grind with the United Sates, today many more such groups have been spawned and target American life and property.
Most important, "the war on terror," the cornerstone of U.S. foreign policy, is providing support for dictators to decimate all legitimate opposition within their societies, further increasing radicalism and anti-Americanism.
As evidenced by the White House, Congress and the new Supreme Court, the radical right has subjugated America's domestic and foreign policy to its will. This faction is attempting to turn back time by eliminating the political and social gains Americans fought so hard to win. New economic policies are targeting the legacies of the New Deal and the Great Society and unleashing huge corporations to act with impunity.
More serious are the attacks on personal freedoms hard-won by the civil rights movement and the counterculture revolution of the '50s, '60s and '70s.
Internationally, they have fashioned a new enemy for the United States, namely Islam and Muslims. I have rarely seen so much hate, misinformation and ignorance displayed so prominently in every facet of American society. Institutions of higher learning are under attack. College Republicans go out of their way in the name of free speech to insult and denigrate those who are different from them. Many speakers and advocates of these groups are paid for by national organizations.
So what are the indicators that America's stupor is coming to an end?
First, polls indicate that most Republican candidates for Congress are facing extreme difficulties holding on to public support.
Second, 56 percent of Americans no longer believe "the war against terror" argument used by the administration to pass unpopular policies.
Third, the war in Iraq is wrong, unnecessary and senseless. According to recent polls, only 34 percent support President Bush in his efforts to maintain it.
Fourth, according to a poll conducted by Zogby International and reported in the Washington Post, 75 percent of U.S. troops in Iraq disagree with the Bush administration and favor evacuating Iraq within a year. Indeed, 29 percent advocate immediate withdrawal. More important, 82 percent didn't buy the administration's weapons-of-mass-destruction argument.
Fifth, the cost of the war has been horrific to the Iraqis and has destabilized their country and turned it into a breeding ground for extremists. Al-Qaida might be paralyzed or even dead, but thanks to this administration, its children are alive and well. And they have no qualms about murdering anyone who gets in their way.
It hasn't been without a cost for America, either. According to the Washington Post, one in three service members in Iraq returns with debilitating psychological disorders.
Sixth, for the first time Americans are discovering how much of their country's economic activity is controlled by foreign business interests. Few can argue against the management of five ports by Dubai World Ports when so many U.S. ports are run by Chinese, Singaporean and British companies.
Finally, the more Americans learn, the more anxious they will be to sweep this administration and its supporters into the dustbin of history and open the windows to let knowledge and hope back in.
I read an article a few days ago where it basically stated that Republican exhaustion is going to bring in the Dems. People just want the bad news to go away. Who cares if its manufactured or half truths. They just dont want to hear it anymore.
Ping! El Kuko is at it again.
A good Irish name, if I do say so myself.
I guess when they realize that no one believes them, the left will get more and more shrill. When do they explode?
Too much rubbish in this article to even begin taking it apart. The US remains the world's best friend--and best hope. All who love freedom will continue to stand with America.
When Cheney is sworn in as President, Natch!
That's funny...I don't recall us being "loved and respected" during the Clinton years. I seem to recall the World Trade Center and a couple of our embassies getting bombed, not to mention Khobar Towers. Don't know what the author has been smoking, but it couldn't be legal.
"More serious are the attacks on personal freedoms hard-won by the civil rights movement and the counterculture revolution of the '50s, '60s and '70s.:
Well, we know where this guy is coming from. When the Rebulicans hold on to Congress in 06 and win in 08, I can't wait to hear what this guys has to say...bet it has something to do with voter fraud, or "Americans are stupid."
Yeah, I hope so.
However, it's obvious the dims "strategy" is to continually pound on Dubya on Iraq, Katrina, NSA, etc, throughout the remainder of his term in the hopes that it will tarnish him & the republicans and people will respond by voting in the dims.
Kind of like when the Looney Left "subjugated" America's domestic and foreign policy to its will?
Consider the source.
Does this really pass for news in Austin? Hard to believe that all States have their little cesspools of liberalism isn't it?
I can't wait till the 60s are rolled back, myself. With a few exceptions such as equality before the law for all men.
I see that this clown is quoting the phony poll that was cooked up by that treasonous liar John Zogby and paid for by an anti-war kook. Zogby deserves nothing less than to be tried for treason and, hopefully, executed. In my opinion, he deserves nothing less than that.
Right about the time they wrap themselves in explosives and position themselves in the midst of a crowd of innocents.
Yeah---didn't mean to suggest that civil rights need to go---was simply trying to say the dude is an ex-flower child douche.
Oh, NOW I SEE...........don't retaliate because then they'll REALLY, REALLY, REEEEEALLLY be mad at us.
Nice missive there, Neville.
What's amazing is that the libs think that the president's low poll numbers mean that we are all scurrying to the left and ready to vote for Ted Kennedy.
