Where the hell does he get off trying to play the poor, misunderstood president? I guess I knew the "pity me", "I never wanted war but had to do
it" speech was going to come sooner or later but I sure didn't realize how disgusting it would sound.
Yeah, my opinion too. If he was a man seeking absolution instead of pity, he'd do well to remember that the root-word of "absolution" is
"solution." Instead of trying to lever in the "pity angle," he'd be better off to find the "solution" & apply it before
At least Abraham Lincoln knew how to recognize a despotic king:
"Kings had always been involving and impoverishing their people in wars, pretending generally, if not always, that the good of the people was the
If he'd stuck to his Constitutional Oath, "faithfully executed the Laws," at least put valiant & sincere effort to enforce the Constitutional Laws
on the rest of the government (after all, that's the Executive Branch's primary "check & balance" on the other Branches) & never listened to his
council's "advice" to the contrary-wise, he wouldn't be in this situation to begin with. No pity for Bush from me.

I think history, time and new records will show us just how out of touch Bush was with the White House operations...and that indeed Cheney was running
Bush was too complacent with his so-called "advisers," Cheney included. If Bush had even a speck of respect for his Constitutional Oath of Office &
two braincells that could still rub together to create a coherent thought, then he would've known
how far he'd be violating
his Oath &
just told them "NO."
realize that only Presidents who fight for
the People & the Constitution are the ones most likely to get assassinated...And just
decided that it was easier to comply with them instead of using his power to enforce the Law
on them. Any way you look at it, Bush was at the
very least a Willing Accomplice
to all of those crimes against Humanity & his Nation...Aiding & abetting enemies of the nation is part of the
Constitutional definition of TREASON.

I have a question who is more evil Bush who did all the crap that he has done or the democratic party that has stood by and watched him do it and then
when they have a chance to impeach him TWO TIMES refuse to do so.
At the very least, any member of Congress who voted "aye" on the Patriot Act without even reading it first
became (unwitting) accomplices as
well...And even further, the Judiciary that did not
declare it as Unconstitutional & any in Congress that did not act to immediately
it are also willing
As long as Bush continues to hide all of these High Crimes & Treasonous Acts behind the "rhetoric" of Executive Privilege (which is nowhere in the
Constitution mentioned as any kind of Presidential Power), Sovereign Immunity (never mind that the People are Sovereign over the government anyway) &
violates more Laws through Signing Statements (because it's nothing less than usurping Power of Legislation from Congress), he can never deserve
pity...He'll deserve only the Contempt of the People & the Law he'd sworn to uphold.

The fact that Bush will not likely be held accountable for his treasonous acts against this country indicates to me that future presidents will be
allowed the same amount of lattitude with no fear of recourse.
That's how past Presidents have grabbed each new Power...Once something is "in place" (illegal or not) it gets harder to remove it
longer it stays. The People gradually grow old & die with the youngsters growing up "being used to it." Social Engineering & deliberate "dumbing
down" of the People at its worst!

When the President determines a catastrophic emergency has occurred, the President can take over all government functions and direct all private
sector activities to ensure we will emerge from the emergency with an "enduring constitutional government."
Yeah, right! War doesn't make peace (at least not until everybody
is dead, on both sides) & violating the Constitution with every breath he
takes is not going to make it "endure" (since it too will be dead & buried).
Another pertinent quote from Lincoln:
"Allow the president to invade a neighboring nation, whenever he shall deem it necessary to repel an invasion, and you allow him to do so whenever he
may choose to say he deems it necessary for such a purpose - and you allow him to make war at pleasure."

Is anyone really all that surprised by this? Leave it to the uber-christian president to think he can just repent when his term is almost up and all
will be well.
"Uber-Christian" my gluteus maximus
! If anything, he's been following the path that sets him firmly on the side of the anti-christ in
