Big Talk from Small Men

William Rivers Pitt "Here's the Funny Part"

Article Here
Summary: "George W. Bush coughed up his latest rationale for
continuing the Iraq war - I think this is the fourth or
fifth one of these to this point - by saying that
because so many American soldiers have been killed, we have
to keep sending American soldiers to get killed as a
means of honoring the American soldiers who have been
killed. William Rivers Pitt says this is big talk from
a guy who spends more time on vacation than a French
aristocrat."

I HAVE to excerpt parts from above for those not inclined to read the whole thing- because this part is noteworthy:
" Here we have Pat Robertson, ostensibly a Christian.. the statement made by Robertson in the immediate aftermath of 9/11, when he said the attack was God's judgment on America for our tolerance of gays, feminists and the ACLU.
    After you get past the immediate disgust that comes whenever you hear something so vile, you are left with the Robertson pretzel-logic. Think about it: If the attacks of 9/11 were the righteous judgment of the Lord, as the false priest told us, then the terrorists were acting on behalf of and to the purposes of God. In other words, they were doing holy and important work, and are therefore above reproach. Call off the War on Terra, folks, and let's bring the troops home. We're waging war on a bunch of dudes who were only seeking to follow Jesus' direct orders."

greenlily, don't abuse the fundies with logic and consistency. It makes their heads hurt.

He is the most vacationing president in the history of the office. And also spends the most time 'on the road' promoting his agenda. We need a president who presides, not a traveling cheerleader trying to drum up support for his policies to make the rich richer.

And this begs the question of who is really running the country? I thought the presidency was a full time job. Maybe with someone of such mental acuity we ought to be glad he is gone so much.

One would think that if it requires such constant promotion, propaganda, deception, and energy to "sell" his policies, that he may as well hire a marketing firm and spend ALL his time riding bikes and playing cowboy in Crawford. Why have him "presiding" at all?
Anyone going to DC in September, speaking of?
