This is not the president you’re looking for. Really.
More Americans disapprove than approve of how George W. Bush, Donald Rumsfeld and Congress are doing their jobs, while a majority approves of Condoleezza Rice. President Bushâ€™s approval hits a record low of 33 percent this week, clearly damaged by sinking support among Republicans. Fox News
George W. Bush’s presidency appears headed for colossal historical disgrace. Barring a cataclysmic event on the order of the terrorist attacks of September 11th, after which the public might rally around the White House once again, there seems to be little the administration can do to avoid being ranked on the lowest tier of U.S. presidents. And that may be the best-case scenario. Many historians are now wondering whether Bush, in fact, will be remembered as the very worst president in all of American history.
As for 9-11, so many questions, so few truthful answers. I doubt this guy has them either but it is interesting to read.
Dr. Reynolds, who holds three U.W.-Madison degrees, and who is currently Professor of Economics at Texas A&M University, will present evidence that top Bush Administration officials orchestrated the controlled demolition of the World Trade Center, and the murder of almost 2,500 Americans, as a pretext for initiating their pre-planned â€œlong warâ€ in the Middle East.
â€œWhile more Americans doubt the 9/11 story every week, evidence abounds that many have a mental block against rational examination of the evidence about 9/11â€ writes Dr. Reynolds in a recent article. This mental block, he thinks, amounts to willful ignoranceâ€”not just about 9/11, but about history.
A poll last week found that voters, by 50% to 37%, would prefer the Democrats to win control of Congress. If Bushâ€™s opponents find themselves in a position of power, the temptation to humiliate him is likely to be irresistible.
(Al) Gore said recently that Bushâ€™s â€œunlawfulâ€ eavesdropping was part of a larger pattern of â€œseeming indifferenceâ€ to the American constitution, which could well be an impeachable offence. — The Times
You’re also not going to get any truth from the US Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld:
Yesterday on Rush Limbaugh, embattled Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld said that those who criticize the Iraq war are being manipulated by terrorists, including Zarqawi and bin Laden, through the U.S. media … according to Rumsfeld, the media isnâ€™t just failing to report the â€œgood newsâ€ from Iraq, it is being actively manipulated by terrorists. Those that are critical of the war are simply buying into the propaganda.
Does anyone actually buy that? Anyone? A bunch of near-mythic (Anyone caught Bin laden yet?), ill equipped people living in caves in Afghanistan can, according the Secretary of Defense, manipulate the US media better than the US Government?
Is the Teflon finally wearing off Bush? Perhaps, it’s not just ‘liberals’ or the Democracts, the right is also calling for impeachment. Even prominant Republicans.
Worse than Watergate? High crimes and misdemeanors justifying the impeachment of George W. Bush, as increasing numbers of Democrats in Washington hope, and, sotto voce, increasing numbers of Republicansâ€”including some of the president’s top lieutenantsâ€”now fear? Leaders of both parties are acutely aware of the vehemence of anti-Bush sentiment in the country, expressed especially in the increasing number of Americansâ€”nearing fifty percent in some pollsâ€”who say they would favor impeachment if the president were proved to have deliberately lied to justify going to war in Iraq.
Then you have:
The lies in the run up to the invasion of Iraq, creating the War on Terrorism. Minimum number of civilians killed by America, 34511, maximum 38660 as of the date of this post.
The holding of foriegn nationals in a prison camp on ‘enemy’ (Cuba) soil.
Torture of prisioners by US Troops – non of the military commanders have been brought to trial.
The American deficit has spiralled out of control.
Phone tapping US citizens, overriding the constitution and declaring that he is the ultimate authority.
Clinton was put on trail for a cigar incident … Wikipedia has the ultimate impeachment roundup.
