That’s why Bush has appointed so many Spanish speaking cabinet members.
We have yet to hear what they are calling this new merger among themselves.
I suggest…Mexamericanada, but then again…I have no say. Nor do you.
While I was watching Tony Blair and George W. Bush standing together yesterday in the Rose garden…it was hard not to notice, that George the man, was trying desperately to rationalize about just how unpopular he is right now, with everyone who put him in office. He said he didn’t worry at all about what people thought of him because, with an almost unbearable cockiness, he thought history would look back and report him as probably the most important man on the earth.
Well, he didn’t say exactly that, but he might as well have.
No wonder Laura wants to divorce him. (According to every tabloid at your local drug store.)
The newly retired Tony Blair put in his two cents, admitting how unpopular they both were in this point in time for going into Iraq, but Tony thought it was the right thing to do and only years from now would history judge them.
As usual, Tony made the point much more eloquently, and for all we know, he may be right. Tony also made another very wise political point, which was---even though we can do what the hell we want with your lives, you DO have the ability and freedom to complain about it!
Wow, I feel so much better, don’t you?
George W. Bush was telling the press reporters that in 2007, historians are still reviewing George Washington’s history…forgetting to mention that in his own time, George Washington was the most beloved leader probably that ever ruled a nation on the planet. He was loved so much by his fellow Americans…no one wanted him to step down. And from that point on, his legacy as a great man was never, ever, ever refuted. (Until Bill Clinton rewrote all history books.)
Hardly the same scenario…
The only way George W. Bush could even come close to George Washington would be if he would expel all illegal immigrants, protect our borders, enforce our laws, put on a helmet, and lead the boys in Iraq into battle. He would have to live out in the desert, NOT in an air conditioned Saddam Hussein palace, but in a regular officer’s tent: not leaving until the war was over.
But why mince details..
As I was watching the President’s face in the Rose Garden---the proud stance in his walk…the almost arrogance in his speech…
It dawned on me. Our Presidents (at least the last three) believe they are the one and most important ruler of the whole world, not just our country. While all of us in America, are thinking that he is just OUR President, and should be paying attention to our wants and needs, the man in the office is on a much higher level of ambition for himself.
It seems he only thinks of America when he is in campaign mode. That’s it. Once in office, he shifts gears.
He is literally…KING OF THE WORLD. And he knows it. And it’s the most powerful aphasiac that any human could not even comprehend, unless he was the man holding that power.
While Presidents are always going around complaining about what they can’t get done because of the other party, history has shown this not to be the case.
That’s why we lowly nobody citizens just don’t get it. While we are thinking our President is looking out for Americans, HE is thinking more about the power that he has to control the whole world, by the people he appoints in various offices:. Like the World Bank, WTO, NATO, etc…He is spending MOST of his hours literally shaping the future of the whole planet.
Legacy’s are like cancer it seems.
We’ve been witnessing Al Gore going through this virus; he is going to save the world. Bill Clinton is going to save the world, and now George Bush.
And if I’m right and I usually am on politics…thanks to good genes, I would say it’s too much power for one man to have. (Hell, that’s just common sense.) No one man could OR should be allowed to handle the kind of power that our Presidents now have today. But they have been, and that’s one of the reasons we are in such a mess.
And---as we have seen by the actions of Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton…this addiction of being able to influence and control the whole world will be with them till they die.
Forget saving Paris Hilton…figure out a way to de-tox Presidents from their own ego’s.
FDR, by the end of his forth term, was as much a dictator as Hitler. I remember Alistair Cooke once saying that, and when I asked my own mom, who lived through the war, she admitted it was true.
While most of us are driving in rush hour traffic to our “service” jobs, while millions of us are losing our jobs…our President is deciding what country he is going to get 100 billion dollars in “aid” to.
No, it will NOT go to aid the US citizens who worked hard for it. But, when you have a whole world to run, and major multinational companies to think about, the US citizen is the least of your worries.
Keep them occupied with living paycheck to paycheck. Keep them in government jobs.
As long as you make that photo-op when there is a tornado, or hurricane, shed a few tears, they will not even notice. Keep your propaganda in place.
While all the citizens of America are debating daily, about our future destruction, immigration, our failing schools, our ridiculous welfare system that gives handouts to the “minorities” who are now 100 million strong--thinking that our elected officials are leading America…While Hannity is confused about Bush’s actions, while Rush Limbaugh has struggled with his parties duplicity: while many voices are shouting loudly every single day…Lou Dobbs noble attacks alone on amnesty--- has anybody noticed?…it doesn’t seem to matter?
Nobody gets it. It’s about the world. Not us.
Then Tony Blair said something I thought was interesting. He said the great thing was, in a “free” society…everyone is allowed to disagree with the politicians, and it’s the politician’s job to listen and expect such disagreements with their actions.
It’s their place to be public servants. Public servants who want to redesign the whole world and control it in their own image.
This is not new. The pharaohs had the same addiction to power, so much so they built pyramids to themselves. Now Presidents build whole countries and Presidential libraries.
The Presidents of America, once in office, really truly believe they are the leaders of the whole world, and America is just not high on the list of “things to do.”
Because they have this tremendous power, to control and influence the world…
They have NO fear at all what the plebeians say…because it will never matter at all.
As long as we think that our opinions, count.
A few more years of American Idol, and we will all be convinced.
Yes, we are free to express our opinions, but our freedom to deserve representation in our “representative” government has disappeared.
So as we watch the debates of all the millionaires, spending FORTUNES of their own money to get into the office of the President of the United States, remember….
Would you spend half your money to become King of the World?
Would George Washington?
