Bush cracks me up. He called the UN the upholder of peace and compassion in the world. Is that like when he called them "irrelevant?" He again tries to tie Iraq to 9-11. He continually intertwines the Iraqi invasion and "terrorists." Not only is this intellectually dishonest, it continues to demonstrate that our reasons for invading Iraq were never clear in the first place. Why has he not once mentioned any capture of WMD? Wasn't this whole war about getting rid of Saddam's WMDs? Well, where are they? It's a shame that he won't be honest with the people. Intead, he talks about freedom and killers and always paints things in the Us v. Them, Good v. Evil argument. As long as we take such a simplistic view of the world, we'll never truly deal with the real issues at hand. Now he needs another $87 billion dollars for Iraq - pushing next year's budget deficit estimate at $550 billion (isn't that about right?). He's also one of the worst readers I have ever seen. Can. He. Pause. Any. More. Often?
