I am sorry. This may not have been the platform to point out that
fuckwit Bush is the dirtiest/nastiest piece of shit to wander the face
of the planet....but I digress.
He truly is a Christian man without fault?
I would wash his feet.
After that, I would look him in the eye.
Then I would rebuke him.
He would crumble upon the weight.
I would dust off my shoes and go looking for Cheney.
The context was "I hate Bush". Since all political discussions are
emotional arguments masquerading as logical ones, there's little hope
of convincing the other party. He won't convince you, you won't
convince him, so what's the point of the back and forth?
This would have been a good thread to have OT in the subject line, no?
Well, yes, but the specific context was this from Robatoy:
"He truly is a Christian man without fault?"
which in that context has a specific meaning that is entirely different from
the question of whether he has made mistakes in his conduct of his job.

Well, given the fact that to answer that question, as phrased would have
been the equivalent to answering, "so, when did you stop beating your
wife?" There was no correct answer to the question. Had he made some
comment regarding mistakes, the headlines the next weeks would have read,
"Bush Admits Huge Mistakes in Iraq! War a Blunder!". It was just the
sharks trolling for red meat, they weren't serious about finding problems
and fixing them, only finding another way to bring scorn upon the
administration. This 24/7 carping since 2000 has gotten way old, it's
pretty obvious the other side and their accomplices in the media don't give
a flyin' flip about the safety or security of this country, their whole
reason for being is to find the next thing to chink away at the
administration. It's not even subtle anymore. The good news is that the
more they do it, the more obvious it is that the safety of this country can
in no way be trusted to the opposition party.
If you're gonna be dumb, you better be tough
But one question for which Bush was evidently not prepared invited him
to name his biggest mistake since 9/11.
"I wish you'd have given me this written question ahead of time so I
could plan for it," Bush joked before taking a long pause.
"I'm sure something will pop into my head here in the midst of this
press conference, with all the pressure of trying to come up with
answer, but it hadn't yet."
Then came a meandering soliloquy that wandered from an affirmation of
his decisions to invade Afghanistan and Iraq to his firm belief that
former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass
destruction and the discovery of mustard gas on a turkey farm in
"I don't want to sound like I have made no mistakes. I'm confident I
have. I just haven't. You just put me under the spot here, and maybe
I'm not as quick on my feet as I should be in coming up with one,"

How DARE you bundle Castro, Ahmedinajad in the same breath as the
fictitious Bin Laden?
Where is Chavez in you bullshit arguement?
Just because a few leaders stand up to fuckwit Bush, don't make them
the equal of Hussein.
Apples and oranges, Doug!!!
Is there some code or rule someplace that requires anti-Bush tirades to be
ignorant and stupid? To compare any approved Bush "torture" of which
includes sleep deprivation, cold rooms , loud music, maybe water boarding
(harmless but scary).... even including any and all of the unapproved
nudity, ridicule and the big dogs at Abu Grraib...... to Saddams murderous
and very public atrocities, his mass graves, approved rape, the tens of
thousands of Kurds and Shiites murdered and imprisoned .....is just so over
the top one has to wonder......Even though Saddam is responsible for over a
million deaths including the Iranian and Kuwait war, one could still easily
say it is not worth any American life or coin to stop such atrocities....
although it does make one wonder how many million must die before we should
be concerned? Were we as equally wrong to use 50,000 troops and spend
billions containing him in the decade prior? Rod
Dilawar's hands were cuffed behind his back and chained to the ceiling.
his feet were shackeled to the floor. He was struck in the legs until
muscles were pulverized, damaged beyond recovery. His shoulders were
dislocated. He was denied food and water. After four days he died,
still hanging from the ceiling.
At his trial, Willie Brand described DIlawar's treatment as
Yes, OP's tirade was ignorant and stupid. So was your reply.
Torture is torture. Once you throw out the Geneva convention, you have lost any
moral authority and you are no better than the scum you're combating. If you
cease to remain civilized, the terrorists have won.
Maybe you should get a grip and realize just how much damage has been done to
America's reputation in the world.
