A Running Conversation

There's still time for him to declare himself a dictator, or start a war that he must stay and finish, or Obama to be assassinated, or some mysterious threat regarding the inaugeration, or any other reason he can come up with to stay in office.

I'm kicking 2008 out the door. Eight years of that asshole is enough. He's too stupid to be a dictator. Believe me, he wants out like more than we want him out! That's a fact jack!

I've heard that about him: That he wants out as much as we want him out. On the other hand, he has this -- I don't know what the word is -- "thing" about his own rightness. It could be that he's simply delusional about being guided by God, which would be the best case scenario regarding any legacy, since it would seal the deal regarding the importance of including mental health services in any health care scheme. But then maybe he actually believes that he is some sort of supreme, omniscient being who really IS right about everything. I never did finish reading "Bush on the Couch."

Then again, Bush's reign, the entire 8 yrs of it, to wit his entire being is a lie. He lies like he breathes. He titles major legislation with lies: The Clean Skies Act; The Clean Water Act; The Deficit Reduction Act. Now to "create his legacy," he has to lie to cover the lies... This is getting post length. OK now where was I...?

Remember the exchange from this summer about gas prices? In answering one question about gas prices hitting $4/gal he flippantly responds that he hadn't heard that. In answering (I believe) the very next question about something else, he responded that he had been busy dealing with other things, like the price of gas. All with a straight face and no sense of irony. Like the Terminator (As I've said many times): (Lying) 's what he does, it's all he does, and he absolutely will. Not. Stop!!!

Allannis Morrisette do a Bush tribute yet? You live, you lie, you ___, you lie....

So... Any ordinary human being would be crushed by the weight of accumulated failure and disaster, and DREAM of getting out. But Bush? He doesn't believe he's failed at all. Except possibly in the case of destroying Social Security. But he's making up for that with the trillions he's funneling to Wall Streeters through TARP and hidden Federal Reserve strategies. In his warped and twisted mind, he's been infinitely successful, and when you look at things through the shit-stained glasses of conservatism, he HAS been infinitely successful: He's gotten nearly 100% of what he's asked for; Not ONE single veto till the 2006 elections.

And then there's the power he's accumulated. Through his illegal wire taps; his signing statements, his executive orders laying the foundations for martial law and dictatorship, his bankrolling of private armies, his bleeding the armed forces dry, his bankrupting the nation through enriching corporations... And then there's always his trump card:

Osama bin Laden

Oh come on.... anyone out there still thinking that he ever intended to catch him? on January 19? Maybe? ???

He has everything Hitler, Mussolini, Lenin, Stalin etc had and more. He's the American dictator of his Grampa Prescott's wet dreams. As much as I drem of his ass going down the road (and to jail), I just can't see him giving up all of that.
