‘Four years, five months, 18 days and counting’

President Bush actually had the gall to make a surprise visit to Afghanistan Wednesday, where he was lambasted by journalists (only four questions were allowed) in a country which he considers to be one of his more successful pet projects.

The blinders, however were on full-force, when he responded to criticism (ahem, bin Laden… deteriorating security situation since U.S. troops left) with this robotic statement:

“….[W]e’re bringing the people to justice, and the world is better for it, as a result of our steady progress.”

Read Froomkin for the full recap.

Also…. more in-depth criticism of the NSA scandal has prompted AG Gonzales to attempt to clarify his testimony. And a survey reveals that 2/3 of the country finds Bush’s sidestepping FISA to be “clearly” illegal.

blinders.

  1. Your frustration is shared by many. Unfortunately having the ideas is one thing, but acting on them is entirely another.

    Of course, evidence of having ideas would be a nice start — it really is beginning to seem like Mrs. Clinton doesn’t have an opinion on ANYTHING… I mean, she’s OFFENDED that reports call her *angry* about voting to approve the war.

    History was. Time to admit mistakes and progress.

    What are some of your ideas?

  2. Is there any worthwhile movement capable of restoring Americas’ promise or do the criminals behind Bush, Limbaugh, O’Rielly, Hannity, Rove, Cheney, Delay et-cetera continue to destroy this nation? Just because other countries succumb to mindless fanatics does not mean we have to. Or does it? A true American leader, citizen, president and general warned us of the cancer these men and women and thier ilk would infect America with. This state of affairs has not happened in a vacumn. It has been developing over the last forty-five years. It will not be easy to reverse this cancer. Who is working on a cure? The time for being shocked or offended is over. Its time for some real American action. Or maybe we should continue tooling down the same materially wasteful road in our bloated self-destruction. I don’t begrudge anyone prospering but when is enough, enough? By the way the AG is the worst representive of the American-Hispanic community I can think of unless you think Himmler represents German-Americans.
