"It's amazing I won. I was running against peace, prosperity, and incumbency."
George W. Bush - June 14, 2001 - speaking to Swedish Prime Minister Goran Perrson, unaware that a live television camera was still rolling.
"It's a shame we don't live in a dictatorship."
George W. Bush - Late November early December 2000 -Speaking off the cuff to the press while waiting for the ballots to be re-counted.
There is an interloper in the White House! We did not elect this man. The vote count says more Americans voted for Al Gore than George Bush. So, how did he get there?
There is a sentence in the book "Stupid White Men" by Michael Moore, that states: "Your services as a citizen, we regret to inform you, are no longer needed."
The 2000 "selection" proved that point. We all went to the polls and voted our conscience. The numbers came in, and "Dubya" says, "this can't be right, I'm not winning! Somebody call Jeb and see if he can't get somebody fired up over those ballots down there. Sure enough they got fired up and the recount began.
Is it just me or does anyone else see absolutely no use for an "Electoral College"? And does anyone ever graduate for it? The Electoral College was designed at a time when we did not have instant transmission of information form one side of the country to the other. Today it is all computerized. They can know who the people voted for in a matter of hours. Before, the states had to gather the votes from the communities, tally them, then send the results with their member of the "College" to Washington to cast the votes for the majority from their states. This system is archaic at best. It's time to change things. Unfortunately, the changes I see coming do not look good at all.
We have and uneducated (he may have gone to Ivy League schools, but he didn't learn much) ignorant (I mean rude) egomaniac in the White House. Little by little he is taking away every Constitutional right we have in the name of homeland security. He is usurping more and more power from Congress, and they are letting him. We have a system of checks and balances in this country for a reason. As of this date the scales are decidedly heavy on the Administative side. Where will this end? And do we really want to know? Personally, I think it's time to stop this madness before we do find out!
We impeached a perfectly good President for what he did in his spare time. Which had nothing to do with running the country. Yet we sit back and do nothing while this imposter trys his damnedest to get us all killed! I think that being blown up is a little more serious offense than Clinton's latest blow job!
When the bombs start falling we'll be on the surface. "Dubya" will be in a bunker somewhere thanking God he saved his own ass. But the joke will be on him. We will go quickly and relatively painlessly. He, on the other hand, will be stuck in a sunless enclosure where, eventually the breathable air will run out, the food supply will dwindle, and they can't get any more drinkable water. He'll slowly and excrutiatingly die a painful death of malnutrition and dehydration. Of course, he may acquire dimensia from oxygen deprivation and not realize the pain he's in. If he's lucky, he'll go first, before having to watch his wife and daughters go one by one before his eyes.
George W. Bush is NOT leading us into a new era of peace and prosperity. He is leading us into Armageddon! The sooner we all see this the better chance of stopping it before it happens.Posted by cdedwards at February 14, 2003 10:21 PM
