Bush Resignation

BUSH'S RESIGNATION SPEECH

The following 'speech' was written recently by an ordinary Maine-iac [a
resident of the People's Republic of Maine ]. While satirical in nature,
all satire must have a basis in fact to be effective. This is an
excellent piece by a person who does not write for a living.

The resignation speech George W. Bush should give:

Normally, I start these things out by saying 'My Fellow Americans.' Not
doing it this time. If the polls are any indication, I don't know who
more than half of you are anymore. I do know something terrible has
happened, and that you're really not fellow Americans any longer.
I'll cut right to the chase here: I quit. Now before anyone gets all in
a lather about me quitting to avoid impeachment, or to avoid prosecution
or something, let me assure you: There's been no breaking of laws or
impeachable offenses in this office.

The reason I'm quitting is simple. I'm fed up with you people. I'm fed
up because you have no understanding of what's really going on in the
world. Or of what's going on in this once-great nation of ours. And the
majority of you are too damned lazy to do your homework and figure it
out. Let's start local. You've been sold a bill of goods by politicians and the news media.

Meanwhile, all you can do is whine about gas prices, and most of you are
too damn stupid to realize that gas prices are high because there's
increased demand in other parts of the world, and because a small
handful of noisy idiots are more worried about polar bears and
beachfront property than your economic security.

We face real threats in the world. Don't give me this 'blood for oil'
thing. If I were trading blood for oil I would've already seized Iraq 's
oil fields and let the rest of the country go to hell. And don't give me
this 'Bush Lied...People Died' crap either. If I were the liar you
morons take me for, I could've easily had chemical weapons planted in
Iraq so they could be 'discovered.' Instead, I owned up to the fact that
the intelligence was faulty.

Let me remind you that the rest of the world thought Saddam had the
goods, same as me. Let me also remind you that regime change in Iraq was
official US policy before I came into office. Some guy named ' Clinton '
established that policy. Bet you didn't know that t, did you?
Now some of you morons want to be led by a junior senator with no
understanding of foreign policy or economics, and this nitwit says we
should attack Pakistan , a nuclear ally. And then he wants to go to Iran
and make peace with a terrorist who says he's going to destroy us. While
he's doing that, he wants to give Iraq to al Qaeda, Afghanistan to the
Taliban, Israel to the Palestinians, and your money to the IRS so the
government can give welfare to illegal aliens, who he will make into
citizens, so they can vote to re-elect him. He also thinks we just need
to sit down and talk to Iran and things would be better (what the hell
do you think we have been doing behind the scenes), and we should stop
our foreign aid to Israel . Did you sleep through high school or what?

You idiots need to understand that we face a unique enemy. Back during
the cold war, there were two major competing political and economic
models squaring off. We won that war, but we did so because
fundamentally, the Communists wanted to survive, just as we do. We were
simply able to outspend and out-tech them.

That's not the case this time. The soldiers of our new enemy don't care
if they survive. In fact, they want to die. That'd be fine, as long as
they weren't also committed to taking as many of you with them as they
can. But they are. They want to kill you, and the bastards are all over
the globe.

You should be grateful that they haven't gotten any more of us here in
the United States since September 11. But you're not. That's because
you've got no idea how hard a small number of intelligence, military,
law enforcement, and homeland security people have worked to make sure
of that. When this whole mess started, I warned you that this would be a
long and difficult fight. I'm disappointed how many of you people think
a long and difficult fight amounts to a single season of 'Survivor.'

Instead, you've grown impatient. You're incapable of seeing things
through the long lens of history, the way our enemies do. You think that
wars should last a few months, a few years, tops.

Making matters worse, you actively support those who help the enemy.
Every time you buy the New York Times, every time you send a donation to
a cut-and-run Democrat's political campaign, well, dang it, you might
just as well Fed Ex a grenade launcher to a Jihadist. It amounts to the
same thing.

In this day and age, it's easy enough to find the truth. It's all over
the Internet. It just isn't on the pages of the New York Times, USA
Today, or on NBC News. But even if it were, I doubt you'd be any
smarter. Most of you would rather watch American Idol or Dancing with
Stars.

I could say more about your expectations that the government will always
be there to bail you out, even if you're too stupid to leave a city
that's below sea level and has a hurricane approaching.

I could say more about your insane belief that government, not your own
wallet, is where the money comes from. But I've come to the conclusion
that were I to do so, it would sail right over your heads.

So I quit. I'm going back to Crawford. I've got an energy-efficient
house down there (Al Gore could only dream) and the capability to be
fully self-sufficient for years. No one ever heard of Crawford before I
got elected, and as soon as I'm done here pretty much no one will ever
hear of it again. Maybe I'll be lucky enough to die of old age before
the last pillars of America fall.

Oh, and by the way, Cheney's quitting too. That means Pelosi is your new
President. You asked for it. Watch what she does carefully, because I
still have a glimmer of hope that there are just enough of you remaining
who are smart enough to turn this thing around in 2008.

So that's it. God bless what's left of America .

Some of you know what I mean. The rest of you, kiss off.

Mr. President: I want to thank you for resigning. It is undoubtedly the first useful thing you have done for the United States of America in quite some time. From the tone of your speech, it is evident that you consider most of us are not worthy or knowledgable enough to have meritted your valuable services: "you people, idiot[s]" and other similar prose certainly tell us clearly that deep down inside, you hate your own people.
Let me tell you, Mr. President, the people of the United States have been on to you for quite some time, but we know you must have something on Nancy Pelosi[impeachment is not on the table], because under the circumstances of your performance, the House of Representatives normally would have been hard at work drawing up Articles of Impeachment quite a while ago.
Perhaps it would be useful to review what we know--"we" meaning those you referred to as "you people and "idiots", and tell to "kiss off".
Everything we know is a matter of public record, much of which was gleaned from good investigative reportage AND freedom of information channels.
We the people of the United States know the following:
>You had a long standing intent to invade Iraq, not withstanding the Clinton Doctrine. If you did not approve of the Clinton doctrine, why did you not reject it?
>In pursuit of your intent, you were willing to provoke Saddam, so a pretext for war could be manufactured.
>You knew that we had Iraq contained by the no fly zones, and that we were decimating their Antiair Defenses, and their Air Force.
>You cherry picked intelligence to manipulate us.
>You manipulated opinion by equating the war on Saddam with the war on Terror.
>You covertly approved methods that were directed at crushing any dissent or manipulating by disinformation anything which tended to militate against your case for going to war.
>You summarily ignored expert information concerning how Iraqi society "WORKS", and you even ignored the advice from your father not to invade. In retrospect you made him look like a genius when he refused to go "all the way" in the Gulf War. He had a vision of what would happen, and God love him, he had to see it all happen in front of his eyes, precipitated by his Son.
>You failed, catastrophically, to plan for predicted post-war exigencies, related to the advice and expert information given you about Iraqi society.[ What could have been great theater to see you land on the deck of an aircraft carrier, dressed in a flight suit complete with helmet, and proclaim: "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED", failed miserably with the REAL HORROR that was was to follow].
>CIA Director George Tenet's evidence package, called a "Slam Dunk" was your final blow used to deceive most of us, including Congress, that war was absolutely critical to the security of the USA.

We learned a lot, Mr. President. We learned Presidents can be wrong-thinking, pathologically ambitious, megalomaniacs, too easily influenced by dark princes and princesses whispering into their ear canals, years before a candidate takes office[We acknowledge the reckless purveyors from the PNAC-Project for a New American Century]. We learned that you believe in a new brand of "Manifest Destiny"--one which says, "SPEAK Loudly and Use Your Big Stick", instead of the devine Teddy Roosevelt's maxim, "Speak Softly, and Carry a Big Stick". We learned that Presidents can be "handled" by their trusted intellectual superiors, especially someone as cleverly insidious as Carl Rove. But alas, we learned these things a little too late. So we are forced to look sadly on the results of our continuing debacle:
>Over 4000 of our magnificent fighting women and men dead
>Over 20,000 of this great fighting force wounded, some
catastrophically.
>More dead and wounded every day
>Almost $700 Billion spent, and about $10 Billion more every
month.
>Over-optimistic, manipulated, Viet Nam era-type progress
reports.
>Uncompeted, sole-source contracts awarded to the Vice
President's former employer.[Multi millions of $$]
>The Abu Ghraib catastrophy
>The contrived retirement of General Eric Shinsecki, who dared
give a[now recognized prescient] estimate of the number of
troops that would be reasonably required in postwar Iraq,
in direct contradiction to the Administration.
>The knowing [by the President, Vice President and CIA
Director] hanging out to dry of Colin Powell, a good and
decent man, who had served his country well and faithfully.
>The Vice President's arrogant proclamation that we made "no
blunders" in this sorry spectacle.
>Illegal wiretapping of our citizenry.
>Thousnds upon thousand of Iraqis being killed, and Shiites.
Sunis and Kurds unable to coalesce into a smooth running
government.
>The inability of the Adminisration to once and for all call
the bluff of the Iranian insanity coming from Khamenei and
Ahmedinejad.

Can there be any wonder, Mr. President, that a burgeoning majority of this nation's citizenry believes that there is more than enough evidence to support articles of impeachment? The collective welfare of this nation demands no less than the most complete analysis and evidentiary exposition by the highest level "court" provided for by our Constitution. May the almighty provide us with that miracle. Only then can this nation set about healing our internally generated wounds, and refocusing our considerable energies, resources, intelligence and wisdom to the task of defeating REAL enemies, foreign and domestic. In such a process, we will then be liberated, once more, to make this nation a true model of freedom and prosperity, to be emulated and valued by our international friends.....as Ronald Reagan so aptly put it, a shining city on the hill.

GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

While what I posted was a joke...yours seems to be a copy and paste from Keith Olberman, who in MY OPINION is a joke! He is most one-sided, liberal, pompous ass there is in America. Out of curiosity, is that where you got it from?

Copy and paste without attribution. That was my own deathless prose. It is curious to hear that you would consider the content "Liberal". Most people who know me think I am three miles to the right of Ghengis Khan.
There is no doubt, however, that G.W. is my candidate for the worst there ever was.

Well

I have to disagree with you on Bush...but that's ok. I don't agree with everything obviously, but I don't find completely bad. Well, that was well written then...but it does sound very similar to a rant that Olberman gave on his show...that's all.

PKato

(transcript of Keith Olberman from his show...I think it was early Sep.)

Finally tonight, as promised, a "Special Comment" on two topics a lot of us had foolishly thought and naively hoped we would not again have to address, and a third topic nobody thought a President would ever seriously mention in public, unless perhaps he'd just been hit in the head with something and was not in full possession of his faculties, how he expressed his empathy with families of the dead in Iraq by giving up golf.

President Bush has resorted anew to the sleaziest fear-mongering and mass manipulation of an administration of a public life dedicated to realizing the lowest of our expectations. And he has now applied these poisons to the 2008 presidential election, on behalf of the party at whose center he and Mr. McCain lurk. Mr. Bush has predicted that the election of a Democratic President could, quote, "eventually lead to another attack on the United States." This ludicrous, infuriating, holier-than-thou and most importantly bone-headedly wrong statement came yesterday during an interview with Politico.com and online users of Yahoo.

The question was phrased as follows: "If we were to pull out of Iraq next year, what's the worst that could happen, what's the doomsday scenario?"

And the President replied: "Doomsday scenario, of course, is that extremists throughout the Middle East would be emboldened, which would eventually lead to another attack on the United States. The biggest issue we face is, it's bigger than Iraq, it's this ideological struggle against cold-blooded killers who will kill people to achieve their political objectives."

Mr. Bush, at long last, has it not dawned on you that the America you have now created, includes "cold-blooded killers who will kill people to achieve their political objectives?" They are those in, or formerly in, your employ, who may yet be charged some day with war crimes.

Through your haze of self-congratulation and self-pity, do you still have no earthly clue that this nation has laid waste to Iraq to achieve your political objectives? "This ideological struggle" you speak of, Mr. Bush, is taking place within this country. It is a struggle between Americans who cherish freedom, ours and everybody else's, and Americans like you, sir, to whom freedom is just a brand name, just like "Patriot Act" is a brand name or "Protect America" is a brand name.

But wait, there's more: You also have said "Iraq is the place where al-Qaeda and other extremists have made their stand and they will be defeated." They made no "stand" in Iraq, sir, you allowed them to assemble there!

As certainly as if that were the plan, the borders were left wide open by your government's farcical post-invasion strategy of "they'll greet us as liberators." And as certainly as if that were the plan, the inspiration for another generation of terrorists in another country was provided by your government's farcical post-invasion strategy of letting the societal infrastructure of Iraq dissolve, to be replaced by an American viceroyalty, enforced by merciless mercenaries who shoot unarmed Iraqis and then evade prosecution in any country by hiding behind your skirts, sir. Terrorism inside Iraq is your creation, Mr. Bush!

It was a Yahoo user who brought up the second topic upon whose introduction Mr. Bush should have passed, or punted, or gotten up and left the room claiming he heard Dick Cheney calling him. "Do you feel," asked an ordinary American, "that you were misled on Iraq?"

"I feel like, I felt like, there were weapons of mass destruction," the President said. "You know, 'mislead' is a strong word, it almost connotes some kind of intentional, I don't think so, I think there was a, not only our intelligence community, but intelligence communities all across the world shared the same assessment. And so I was disappointed to see how flawed our intelligence was."

Flawed. You, Mr. Bush, and your tragically know-it-all minions, threw out every piece of intelligence that suggested there were no such weapons. You, Mr. Bush, threw out every person who suggested that the sober, contradictory, reality-based intelligence needed to be listened to, and damned fast. You, Mr. Bush, are responsible for how "intelligence communities all around the world shared the same assessment." You and the sycophants you dredged up and put behind the most important steering wheel in the world propagated palpable nonsense and shoved it down the throat of every intelligence community across the world and punished everybody who didn't agree it was really chicken salad.

And you, Mr. Bush, threw under the bus, all of the subsequent critics who bravely stepped forward later to point out just how much of a self-fulfilling prophecy you had embraced, and adopted as this country's policy in lieu of, say, common sense.

The fiasco of pre-war intelligence, sir, is your fiasco. You should build a great statue of yourself turning a deaf ear to the warnings of the realists, while you are shown embracing the three-card monte dealers like Richard Perle and Donald Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney. That would be a far more fitting tribute to your legacy, Mr. Bush, than this presidential library you are constructing as a giant fable about your presidency, an edifice you might as well claim was built from "Iraqi weapons of mass destruction" because there will be just as many of those inside your presidential library as there were inside Saddam Hussein's Iraq.

Of course, if there is one overriding theme to this President's administration it is the utter, always-failing, inability to know when to quit when it is behind. And so Mr. Bush answered yet another question about this layered, nuanced, wheels-within-wheels garbage heap that constituted his excuse for war.

"And so you feel that you didn't have all the information you should have or the right spin on that information?"

"No, no," replied the President. "I was told by people, that they had weapons of mass destruction."

People? What people? The insane informant "Curveball?" The Iraqi snake oil salesman Ahmed Chalabi? The American snake oil salesman Dick Cheney?

"I was told by people that they had weapons of mass destruction, as were members of Congress, who voted for the resolution to get rid of Saddam Hussein.

"And, of course, the political heat gets on, and they start to run and try to hide from their votes."

Mr. Bush, you destroyed the evidence that contradicted the resolution you jammed down the Congress's throat, the way you jammed it down the nation's throat. When required by law to verify that your evidence was accurate, you simply resubmitted it, with phrases amounting to "See, I done proved it," virtually written in the margins in crayon. You defied patriotic Americans to say "The Emperor Has No Clothes," only this time with the stakes, as you and the mental dwarves in your employ put it, being a "mushroom cloud over an American city."

And as a final crash of self-indulgent nonsense, when the incontrovertible truth of your panoramic and murderous deceit has even begun to cost your political party seemingly perpetual congressional seats in places like North Carolina and last night Mississippi, you can actually say with a straight face, sir, that the members of Congress, "the political heat gets on and they start to run and try to hide from their votes," while you greet the political heat and try to run and hide from your presidency, and your legacy, 4,000 of the Americans you were supposed to protect are dead in Iraq, with your only feeble, pathetic answer being, "I was told by people that they had weapons of mass destruction."

Then came Mr. Bush's final blow to our nation's solar plexus, his last reopening of our common wounds, his last remark that makes the rest of us question not merely his leadership or his judgement but his very suitability to remain in office. "Mr. President," he was asked, "you haven't been golfing in recent years. Is that related to Iraq?"

"Yes," began perhaps the most startling reply of this nightmarish blight on our lives as Americans in our history. "It really is. I don't want some mom whose son may have recently died, to see the Commander in Chief playing golf. I feel I owe it to the families to be as, to be in solidarity as best as I can with them. And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal."

Golf, sir? Golf sends the wrong signal to the grieving families of our men and women butchered in Iraq? Do you think these families, Mr. Bush, their lives blighted forever, care about you playing golf? Do you think, sir, they care about you?

You, Mr. Bush, you who let their sons and daughters be killed. Sir, to show your solidarity with them you gave up golf? Sir, to show your solidarity with them you didn't give up your pursuit of this insurance-scam, profiteering, morally and financially bankrupting war. Sir, to show your solidarity with them you didn't even give up talking about Iraq, a subject about which you have incessantly proved without pause or backwards glance, that you may literally be the least informed person in the world? Sir, to show your solidarity with them, you didn't give up your presidency? In your own words "solidarity as best as I can" is to stop a game? That is the "best" you can? Four thousand Americans give up their lives and your sacrifice was to give up golf! Golf. Not "Gulf," golf.

And still it gets worse. Because it proves that the President's unendurable sacrifice, his unbearable pain, the suspension of getting to hit a stick and a ball together, was not even his own damned idea.

"Mr. President, was there a particular moment or incident that brought you to that decision, or how did you come to that?"

"I remember when de Mello, who was at the U.N., got killed in Baghdad as a result of these murderers taking this good man's life. And I was playing golf, I think I was in central Texas, and they pulled me off the golf course, and I said, it's just not worth it any more to do."

Your one, tone-deaf, arrogant, pathetic, embarrassing gesture, and you didn't even think of it yourself? The great Bushian sacrifice — an Army private loses a leg, a Marine loses half his skull, 4,000 of their brothers and sisters lose their lives — you lose golf, and they have to pull you off the golf course to get you to just do that?

If it's even true. Apart from your medical files, which dutifully record your torn calf muscle and the knee pain which forced you to give up running at the same time — coincidence, no doubt — the bombing in Baghdad which killed Sergio Vieira de Mello of the U.N. and interrupted your round of golf was on Aug. 19, 2003. And yet, there's an Associated Press account of you and photographs playing golf as late as Columbus Day of that year, October 13, nearly two months later.

Mr. Bush, I hate to break it to you 6 ½ years after you yoked this nation and your place in history to the wrong war, in the wrong place, against the wrong people, but the war in Iraq is not about you. It is not, Mr. Bush, about your grief when American after American comes home in a box. It is not, Mr. Bush, about what your addled brain has produced in the way of paranoid delusions of risks that do not exist, ready to be activated if some Democrat, and not your twin Mr. McCain, succeeds you.

The war in Iraq, your war, Mr. Bush, is about how you accomplished the derangement of two nations, and how you helped funnel billions of taxpayer dollars to lascivious and perennially thirsty corporations like Halliburton and Blackwater, and how you sent 4,000 Americans to their deaths for nothing!

It is not, Mr. Bush, about your golf game! And, sir, if you have any hopes that next January 20 will not be celebrated as a day of soul-wrenching, heart-felt thanksgiving, because your faithless stewardship of this presidency will have finally come to a merciful end, this last piece of advice:

When somebody asks you, sir, about Democrats who must now pull this country back from the abyss you have placed us at; when somebody asks you, sir, about the cooked books and faked threats you foisted on a sincere and frightened nation; when somebody asks you, sir, about your gallant, noble, self-abdicating sacrifice of your golf game so as to soothe the families of the war dead; this advice, Mr. Bush: Shut the hell up! Good night and good luck.

Perhaps .....

it sounds similar because the after action assessments homed in on some of the same or similar results. Olberman's tone is virulently volitile, and full of frustration/agression. I would hope mine is far more moderate, but none the less focused or pinpointed.
On second thought, after rereading Olberman's tripe, I am insulted that you would characterize mine as sounding like his.

great post PKATO. I am frustrated by the weak mindedness of liberalism. They choose to accept opinions of rock stars, actors and the media. The actors have no true understanding of forein policy, economic or social responsibility. Self preservation is no longer a persieved need.
Bush has not communicated the truth. Thats his downfall. In 2000, He warned about oil dependency, mortgage back securities and was laughed at. The media made him out to be in the pocket of oil companys. He warned about higher gas and energy prices and the Dem's laughed at him.
When he wanted to reduce no income/job/asset verification loans the media called him a racist who did not want minorities to have homes.
When he proposed the new environmental Bill which included Nuclear, domestic drilling, wind/solar the dem's refused to allow passage.
I was in graduate school in 2000 and remember all these issues because we were required to study them. After his Environmental/Energy plan failed to pass (John Kerry, Ted Kennedy voted present), they passed a oil subsidy bill to give tax breaks to exxon mobile.
Why doesn't the media report on these issues. Why did I have to search in the archive library at school in order to write all these reports?
The information is all there, people need to pay attention. We can not trust the media.

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do

DEMO....I agree

That there are too many people who simply take what the media says...and maybe a long time ago, that wasn't as bad an idea as it is now...but when someone like Olberman is allowed to just spout off like he did and tell the President of the US to shut the hell up, then that just isn't right. MSNBC should not have allowed that or should have told him if he wanted to say that...put it on his own blog. My problem is this: I agree with you that as citizens, if have media, which should be there to pass long FACT and be our advocates, that's great. But when they start rooting for candidates, then choose stories on what will make their candidate look better, then we as a country have a problem. I watched Bill O' Reilly one day and he had Ben Afleck on...when I first saw it, I cringed. But, I was pleasantly surprised, because Afleck is at least well spoken and seemed to have at least some education on the issues...he spoke intelligently. I have no problem with folks like this supporting candidates and coming out in public to support them. The ones I hate are the Rosie O' Donnells of the world...who just hate anyone who doesn't believe as they do.

As a member of the military...I despised Clinton, because I felt he represented similar things as Obama (someone who didn't think our system was as it should be and wanted to change it...put government in the mix more and more, etc), however I respected him as THE PRESIDENT. I didn't show any hatred towards him, wouldn't have gone on television and told him to 'shut the hell up', etc. Many far right and left people show so much hatred and it's not good. But, in my opinion, the left is more hateful in those things and of course, the media, for the most part beleive more closely to those on the left...so they get more coverage, or get covered on more issues. It's just not fair and it causes great problems in the country. I made my own personal statement on President Clinton, in my own way. I was eligible to retire in 2000, but I chose to stay in the Air Force until a new President was elected, because I didn't want Clinton's signature on my Retirement Certificate. My choice, my statement, no hate and I felt better for it.

Everything I have posted on here...I think anyway, I had at least researched and tried to verify the facts...but today, it seems as though if it's in an email, it must be true! Things are getting out of hand, but to be honest, I really don't know if the tide can be turned when it comes to the media!

Anyway...this is my last post on this thread...it's making me tired and giving me a headache!!!

I would respectfully suggest you check your statement on who you hate,and why, and then do a little introspecting.

I stand corrected...but if you read what I wrote (and I think you refer the Rosie O' Donnells of the world), as an intelligent individual you should realize that I don't hate her, as I never met her. In addition, I don't hate anybody, I wasn't raised that way. What I was referring to, was hating that type of thinking and I used Rosie to personify that type of thinking. As for Clinton, once again, as a person I didn't hate or despise him...I didn't like what he stood for.

Also, I guess this wasn't my last post, so I am probably a liar and a hateful person, well, whatever is thought of me, I know it's only the opinion of people who don't know me anyway.

By the way, Reagan is SPELLED with an, not en...just so you know.

HEY....

Good clarification...I certainly think people can buy "hating" types of thinking or value systems, without being hateful, themselves.

I doubt you need to worry about what people think of you. I have not seen anyone impuning your honesty, and you clarified the other issue well.

Yes, I mentioned on another post that I thought I really knew how to spell Ronnie's name, but somehow the typing just did not integrate with what is left of the brain.
