George W. Bush Should Quit While America is Still Whole
by John W. Lillpop
January 10, 2007 will go down in history as a major turning point in the war on terror. For on that memorable date, America's alleged commander-in-chief confessed that America is not winning in Iraq, and conceded that more troops are needed.
However, President Bush also continued to insist that victory is "possible" in Iraq.
The obvious question: Possible for whom, sir?
Do you mean the insurgents? Or perhaps you were referring to Iran and Syria? Or is Saddam Hussein making an improbable comeback from the clutches of Satan?
For years, Bush has fought off critics who have said America needs more ground troops in Iraq because we were not winning. Despite all evidence to the contrary, Bush preached, "Stay the Course" as the best option for America.
America is now paying the price for electing a man who is incapable of communicating well enough to pass an elementary speech class. George W. Bush is the worst communicator on the public stage anywhere in the world right now, and must surely be the least effective communicator ever to occupy, or even enter, the White House.
Frankly, it is embarrassing to be an American when George W. Bush speaks. The man comes across as a clueless dimwit who compounds his problem with an arrogant smirk and haughty manner.
An idiot with a smirk-that is our "conservative" president, all right!
George W. Bush has squandered an excellent opportunity to change the course of history and expunge liberalism from the body politic, perhaps forever.
But because of his incoherent speech, bumbling mismanagement, inattention to business, and arrogant malpractice, America has made no progress in reforming social security, spending and the national debt are completely out of control, and America has nearly lost all credibility in the world.
Worse of all, George W. Bush is attempting to convert America into a third-world cesspool by countenancing the illegal invasion of this nation by peasants from Mexico.
Perhaps Bush does so knowing that, by comparison to non-English speaking illegal aliens, his own English will not seem so awful?
This president's dismal performance has given America Nancy Pelosi as Speaker-elect and Harry Reid as Majority leader of the U.S. Senate.
Only George W. Bush could make Donald Rumsfield look like a complete failure, while simultaneously elevating Cindy Sheehan to the status of Nobel Peace prize nominee.
By the time Bush finishes his term, the nation will welcome Hillary Clinton and her legion of leftists with open arms.
Just imagine what a pleasure it will be to once again have a president who can actually speak fluent English. Even if the words he/she speaks are leftist pap, at least it will be delivered in an intelligent and comprehensible fashion.
Were he an honorable man who really cared about America, George W. Bush would announce that he is resigning the presidency, effective immediately.
Bush would then be free to take his "Mission Accomplished" banner and "Spanish for Dummies" book with him and retreat to Crawford, Texas.
Sad to say, but that is really George W. Bush's only hope for any thing approaching a positive legacy.
John Lillpop is a recovering liberal, "clean and sober" since 1992 when last he voted for a Democrat. Pray for John: He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, where people like Nancy Pelosi are considered reasonable!
