Fratboy-in-Chief makes US irrelevant

We Americans need to realize how important our choice of President is for the whole world. Not just for our country. In the recent past many American voters have voted for a drunk driving, former coke snorting, intellectually light-weight frat boy whose rich and well connected daddy has paved his way in life. Maybe that’s the guy you want to invite to the backyard barbeque and kegger, but we must never again confuse that with electing a president.

Instead of negotiating a political solution in Iraq, he abrogates his responsibility as President, blames the military for his failures, claims that “stay the course” is a strategy and pretends that everything if fine in Iraq – while Americans and Iraqis continue to die and the country descends into a violent civil war.

Now the powder keg that he has ignited in Iraq is spreading calamity throughout the Middle East. And instead of being engaged in finding a solution, he does nothing but shrug his shoulders and say "Syria should get Hezbollah to stop doing this shit." Well, I think that Bush should get Israel to "stop doing this shit."

In the last decades the world has relied on the American President to step in, be a leader, encourage peace and be actively involved in the process of securing peace. Remember Nixon sending Kissinger with his shuttle diplomacy? Remember Carter’s Camp David Accords? Clinton’s engagement with Rabin and Arafat? They all did their job of active engagement in working for peace in the Middle East.

No so, Mr. Bush. He is yet again AWOL – just like when he was in the National Guard. The Middle East is exploding and it’s almost as if that was his plan all along! Oh, wait a minute. Maybe it was!!

Bush and his neocon cohorts are rubbing their hands in glee as their Doomsday Project is succeeding. Journalist Juan Williams accused William Kristol of the Project for the New American Century of wanting "war, war and more war." That sums up the Bush Foreign Policy!

We must impeach Pres. Bush now. I don’t say this lightly, but we must -- not just for our sake, but for the sake of the entire world.

Well put Kathy! Bush should stop doing ALL the shit his administration is doing, which is plenty.

I'm all for W's impeachment for the good of the world. I wish there was something towards that end that we could actually do that would affect things. If you guys think of anything let me know. I don't think the city by city method is going to work.
