" arrogance and incompetence " Now those are word not usually used with Bush in the same sentence.

No, it was GREED.

"Somebody's got to do it."

I vividly remember that quote from an interview with Hagel on NPR a year or so ago. He was talking about the US' nasty habit of stationing troops all over the globe. He has his own brand of arrogance to deal with.

The sad part is that 30% of the population are still too stupid to realize it. I guess they're busy planning for The Rapture.

Newsflash!
__________
Terrorists blow up Roosevelt’s nose at Mt. Rushmore!

How could Homeland Security allow this to happen?

Seriously though, does anybody out there feel like something BIG is about to happen?

- Like maybe a major earthquake along the San Andreas or the New Madrid Fault?
- An assassination?
- A new war breaking out somewhere, all of a sudden?
- An airplane crash?
- A terrorist attack?
- Sudden multiple bank failures, accompanied with runs of money and long lines of people trying to withdraw all their savings at once?
- Americans finally awaken from their credit-induced coma, realize all just how fvcked they are, and instigate mass riots?

Anyone else get the feeling that the other shoe is about to drop?

Or is this just HP-induced paranoia?

We also need a pic of Clinton who signed NAFTA in the early 90's.

He's signed the biggest scam that shipped all our jobs overseas.

I call it incompetence and corruption. Unfortunately, the alternative choice isn't much better.

I think you can say the same thing about the American people in general.

Remember, we, as a population in general, elected these people into office, and we deserve all the consequences of their actions.

***********************************

Jesus, Ed, you are an ingrate and a hard core partisan. France, for godssake, funded our Revolutionary War. You might want to thank them a little for giving you the country and Bush administration that you so blindly defend at all cost. You would do really well in a nation who has an absolute dictator who never gets critized or questioned. "Todo por la patria" "Everything for the Homeland" used to be the famous saying of Generalisimo Franco in Spain. You would have loved him, he was a dictator. One of the greatest and most important freedoms of this great but imperfect nation is the freedom to speak out against our government and to be auto-critical. That freedom can make this country a better place.

Just because France didn't agree with us on Iraq doesn't make them our enemy. In fact, France has been proven wiser in the case of Iraq than the capricious little pup called the United States of America. WE as a nation still have a lot of maturing to do, we are only 232 years old. Europe has already seen centuries upon centuries of some of the most brutal history with so many wars, dictators, monarchies, famine, hubris, bankruptcy, etc. They just know more but their not perfect to be sure, but we have to acknowledge how they have been there and done that. They've known torture, severe poverty, violence, broken economies, war, etc.

Don't be so arrogant.

Nice Picture.

Vote for 1 (one):

Dumb and Dumber.

Greedy and Greedier.

Dishonest and Dishonester (a new Bush term to enter the lexicon)

Jail or Prison.

Pets or Meat?

Fu*k Bush and Cheney. Lock them both up at once. We'll make up a complete list of the charges later as we go along.

Extra Credit:
Have you watched the youtube clip of your American Decider-in-Chief, Jorge Bushco throwing out the first pitch at a recent ballgame? Bush was literally booed out of the stadium and into the warm waiting arms of his SS men like a three year old to under mommies skirt. Everyone hates Bush, especially working people in his own country and he is no longer safe out in public judging by the rain of debris being thrown at him.

I hope he enjoys his visit to the Olympics in China. To bad they are not being held in his new post-presidential home in Argentina.

The GW Bush library should be built in Baghdad in his (dis) honor.

Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Hussein (Saddam, not Barrack)and Pol Pot were punks compared to the Bush-Cheney-Rove Gang-of-thugs.

Lauravella - in all honesty Clinton was kind of forced into the NAFTA thing - maybe you recall that the Republicans held sway in both houses of Congress at the time. He had to pick his battles and he would have lost this one no question.

The only good outcome from all of this is that there will be no more REPUBLICAN PARTY after all this is set and done.

Bunch of Republican Clowns ruin this great country!!

I love the irrational hatred some people have for the country of my birth. I especially enjoyed Mitt Romney's remarks on the day he announced he was dropping out of the presidential race. He said he was afraid America would become the "France of the 21st Century". What's so bad about that? Well according to Mitt the whole European continent is going down the tubes because of "weakened faith in the Creator, failed families, disrespect for the sanctity of human life, and eroded morality.".
Really Mitt? Of the two countries who do you think has the highest rate of divorce, murder, incarceration (and I'll throw in mortgage fraud for good measure)? I'll give you a hint: it's not France.
I'll guess that strong "faith in the creator" is doing wonders. Keep it up.

Mammoth - I think your on to something.

I think reading whatever is leaked to the msm will give you a good idea of what is about to happen. I'm guessing that after a democratic nominee is chosen you're going to see the msm start 'reporting', which is basically taking government propaganda and spoon feeding it, that Iran is doing something wrong or that we were attacked by Iran, typical "false flag" garbage that our government has been pulling for decades - we attack ourselves and then claim it was so and so.

I'm guessing something might be pulled to get McCain elected. But frankly I don't think it matters which one of our three bozos get's elected. We're not getting out of Iraq, ever.

Remember all the 'terror alert' color coded b.s. that was plastered all over the msm before bush was reelected. You wake up to being at Terror Alert Yellow - what a joke. Whatever happened to that tripe because it sure died down after he was reelected.

The bush-co GOP CNN, CBS, AP, FOX, Populat Science, ETC., FED NEWS FEEDS propaganada news network needs to be restored to "Freedom of The Press" and reporting. If not, WE are DOOMED.

I pray every night that they remain in excellent health, although I do feel very strongly that Bush is a panty-waist. Oh, and have you noticed that even though he's a nominal right winger, he dresses left?

Ed said...

I do love it when you DailyKooks get so excited about a France comment. It's like shooting fish in a barrel with you nutjobs. Oh no, he said something bad about France. All systems go on vitriolic attacks.

And dumbass, when he meant France of the 21st century he meant a socialist country with systemic 10% unemployment and race riots on a yearly basis. Anyone with an IQ above 50 could figure that out. Sorry you couldn't clue in. Now back to the DailyKook talking points for you.

WTF would have thunk it? Ross Perot was right.

I know I'll get flamed for this, but I'm going to say it anyway so na na na. I think Bush is doing exactly what the middle class wants. They wanted the big Mcmansion with the Hummer and the McDonalds on every corner and Walmart DVD players from CHina. They wanted to eat Ramen noodles for dinner and Gucci purses from some weird country on the other side of the earth.

When Bushman was first elected, I thought he was going to be a tyrant. Now, I think he's just another Executive Stooge courtesy of Washington DC, Inc. He's turned the White House into the Smackdown Hotel located on the corner of Know-Your-Role Blvd and Jabroni Drive! It seems to me that the Republican party is pushing for bailouts for the whiny middle class that bought into the housing bubble. Honestly, i think everyone in this country has got it all wrong. The left wingers are the Nazis and the right wingers are the commie pinkos. Maybe that's why they call them red states...

That Andrew HAc or whatever his/her name is right; the Americano middle class buffoon is a grilled snapper turtle roasting over an open fire with some cheese biscuits and mashed taters. Better get some Heinz ketchup, my good friend.

Mammoth-
Like my mama used to tell me,
"Trust that gut feeling".

Do you trust yours?

Do not blame HP for your ulcers.

Don't think for a second that incompetence had anything to do with this "predicament" we find ourselves in.

Greed, yes.
Arrogance, certainly.
Avarice, definitely.

Stupidity, no way.

ed, Mitt Romney never said anything about socialism or unemployment. The direct quote is "weakened faith in the Creator, failed families, disrespect for the sanctity of human life, and eroded morality.". You can recreate your own version of reality in your head if you want,that won't change anything to what he actually said.
I've got news for you, when it comes to eroded morality and the sad state of families the US of A has been a trail blazer. The current mortgage crisis is the manifestation of the lower moral standards in this country. People think it's OK to lie and cheat, and when the house of cards collapses they either walk away or beg the feds to rescue them (no socialism here, move along). But hey, we're so much better than those godless Europeans because we sir believe in baby jeebus.
