Stay the Course

I’m not surprised by Bush’s speech. The idiot said just what I thought he would, in front of a hand-picked military audience. Nevertheless, the performance revealed how desperate things are getting.

Dubya finished in well under the allotted time, which suggests that he was supposed to have been interrupted often by cheering and applause, but apparently the copious flow of slime and lies was interrupted but once. Even the hand-picked captive audiences aren’t showing as much enthusiasm as before.

The speech was also another recent manifestation of how the 9/11-terrorist card just isn’t the powerful trump that it used to be. If Bush wants to keep using that ploy, he’ll have to plan and execute another phony “terrorist” attack.

Of course, Bush’s speech was a reeking pile of BS. Our mission in Iraq is to hunt down terrorists, he claimed. The real mission is to set up permanent military bases and sit on the oil. And to make obscene profits for US corporations.

“Like most Americans, I see the images of violence and bloodshed. Every picture is horrifying, and the suffering is real.” Utter crap. The lives of Americans and Iraqis alike mean little or nothing to him, else he would not have started an illegal war on a pack of lies. You wonder how someone like Bush can sleep at night, or look at himself in the mirror without vomiting.

Like all Bush’s speeches, the whole thing was a sickening display of self-righteousness, hate-peddling, hypocrisy, lies, spin, and distortion.
