Bush has broken the US government. The US military was there to protect us. Bush has used it to fight a fascist-style aggressive war of choice. FEMA is there for emergency aid. Bush did not deploy it effectively for New Orleans. Social security lifted the elderly out of the poverty that had often been their fate before the 1930s. Bush declined to use Clinton's surplus to fix the system, and has essentially borrowed against the pensions of us all to pay for his wars. Government is there to ensure our security. Bush has used it to spy on us, to prosecute patently innocent persons, to manipulate the media and instill us with lies and propaganda.

“You know, if you want to have a Third World War, you need only drop a nuclear bomb on Israel.”

George W. Bush

“This President appears to lack the desire, creativity and patience to engage in the most important diplomacy that a nation can face — with its enemies — over issues that could mean the difference between war and peace.”

Just Foreign Policy has estimated that 1,118,846 Iraqis have been killed since Operation Iraqi Freedom began.

The scale of death caused by the British and U.S. governments may well have surpassed that of the Rwanda genocide, making it the biggest single act of mass murder of the late 20th century and the 21st century.

We have either a president who is too dishonest to restrain himself from invoking World War III about Iran at least six weeks after he had to have known that the analogy would be fantastic, irresponsible hyperbole, or we have a president too transcendently stupid not to have asked, at what now appears to have been a series of opportunities to do so, whether the fairy tales he either created or was fed were still even remotely plausible. A pathological presidential liar, or an idiot-in-chief. It is the nightmare scenario of political science fiction: A critical juncture in our history and, contained in either answer, a president manifestly unfit to serve, and behind him in the vice presidency an unapologetic warmonger who has long been seeing a world visible only to himself.

You, Mr. Bush, are a bald-faced liar.And moreover, you have just revealed that John Bolton and Norman Podhoretz and the Wall Street Journal editorial board are also bald-faced liars.We are to believe that the intel community, or maybe the State Department, cooked the raw intelligence about Iran, falsely diminished the Iranian nuclear threat, to make you look bad? And you proceeded to let them make you look bad?You not only knew all of this about Iran in early August, but you also knew it was accurate.And instead of sharing this good news with the people you have obviously forgotten you represent, you merely fine-tuned your terrorizing of those people, to legally cover your own backside.While you filled the factual gap with sadistic visions of, as you phrased it Aug. 28, “nuclear holocaust,” and, as you phrased it Oct. 17, “World War III.”My comments, Mr. Bush, are often dismissed as simple repetitions of the phrase “George Bush has no business being president.”Well, guess what?Tonight, hanged by your own words, convicted by your own deliberate lies....You, sir, have no business being president.

SPECIAL COMMENTBy Keith OlbermannAnchor, 'Countdown'Dec. 6, 2008


He's wagging

His wicked



He's waging

His wicked war

That he’s addicted

To like a whore.

He is acting like


But he’s speaking like


He’s not



He’s not


He’s just the

Skull & Bones



Our Homeland’s

Long War


He’s the




He’s the


True Believer

Who thinks a

Fact is a Lie


Truth is a Spy.

He’s a bad


Who thinks

War is Peace


Peace is War.

I wish that time-travel


So that I could unbend

All that Dubya has


By M. L. Squier
