My take on the Nine Eleven Event is this. Bush41 called Bush43 before the second WTC tower collapsed, and said, “Son, you have just had the 2004
election handed to you!” Americans rarely change presidents in the midst of a war. LBJ in 1968 is the only example I know to break that “rule.”
OTOH, only Lincoln and Roosevelt faced elections in the middle of a war.
A plan was quickly hatched in the Oval Office how to co-opt the tragedy and morph it into a political bonanza handed them on a platter. They cold wrap
themselves in the flag, and divert attention from their failing domestic policies. To take full advantage, the US government had to go “full bore”
into this new War! Half measures would jeopardize the whole undertaking.
The scheme worked beautifully in the 2002 election. Whereas Bush43 had already began to have critical remarks about his capability and his policies
before Nine Eleven Event, those critics soon fell silent. Sure, Buah43 had squandered the trillion dollar surplus Clinton bequeathed to him, and sure,
Bush43 had given the rich and famous tax cuts beyond their wildest dreams. The DJIA had fallen markedly from the 11,000 high in December, 2000. It
would sink to 7,000 under Bush43 and the more than five years to reach its old highwater mark at 11,000. That’s what the rich and famous - R&Fs I
call’em - thought of Bush43's ability to manage the economy.
Under cover of the War on Terror, Bush43 has loaded the Supreme Court with ultra right wing followers, he has emasculated the FEMA which we did not
learn until the Katrina event. He has muffed a golden opportunity to organize the new Dept of Homeland Security. He was either misinformed or just
plain stupid when he proclaimed on May 1, 2003, “Mission Accomplished.” His “handlers” tried to make the public think Bush43 had piloted the
plane that landed on the USS Lincoln until they learned it was a Federal crime for a military pilot to let anyone not checked out in a plane, fly the
plane. Again, he was either misinformed or stupid when he said in New Orleans, “Brownie, you’re doing a heck of a job!” Which miscue was
followed in June, 2006, by a special appearance on national tv announcing the death of al Zarqawi and said that would bring the advent of peace and
victory to Iraq. Hmm? We cannot even leave the Green Zone in Baghdad. Is that his vision of victory? Geez.
Bush41 was right though, and Bush43 barely won reelection in 2004. I say “barely” because he had no strong opponent and he won by 120,000 votes in
Ohio, many of which have been disputed. Aside: America has a very poor voting system. We need to have a uniform system with a paper trail. We just
blew $3 billion on the mess we now have. Ugh! Another GOP Congress miscue. Crazy? Or crazy like a fox?
Bush43 is now desperately trying to salvage GOP Congressional prospects in the upcoming November 7 election. He invokes Hitler. He invokes Lenin. He
calls 1 billion Muslims "islamofascists" hoping to win their hearts and minds. He realizes that if the Dems gain control of Congress his last 2
years will look more like Clinton’s than the free ride he has had these first 6 years. Bush43 has already said we are not to leave Iraq in his
term. Afghan is falling back under the Taliban. The Brits and Canadians are about to abandon the effort there. Tony Blair has used up his points and
the PM will be out of office by Boxing Day, 2006. Another casualty of Bush43. And he used to talk of “L E G A C Y!” Yes, he is leaving a legacy,
of shame and sorrow. Thx B43, You’ve mucked it up again. I warned the people in 2000, any man who can sign 154 death warrants in 6 years - one every
2 weeks - is not “right.” And I was right!
The War on Terror will end when Bush43 is out of office and ratoinal people can devise a workable and sustainable plan to make the world safer.
