I listen to NPR in the morning, and currently Bush is blathering about world-wide fear and freedom. I'm blogging contemporaneously with the crap spewing out of his mouth. This again? Why does it always come back to this? Where is this COMING from? What?!? Beirut? Mogadishu? Why is he always spinning tales of terror and the need to fight out of nowhere? "Mortal danger to all humanity"? "We will not rest until the war on terror is done"? You have NO credibility with me. You cried wolf too many times - war in Afghanistan! Iraq! Because they attacked us! ok, no, but they have bin Laden! No wait, they have weapons! No? Um, they are bad to their people! We need to be liberators!
His leadership makes me so angry that anything he says right now is enough to drive me to join a demonstration. I regard federal government with disdain because I have no say and no power in it. Those people don't represent me or my beliefs. It's us, the people, against them, our government. Bush describes the threat as people who believe "Someone else is to blame and violence is always the solution." Well that line could very well describe his own administration. What the hell is he getting at?
There is apparently no point to this speech. Just an attempt at a pep talk, apparently. He just keeps listing things that are wrong with the governments and terrorists of the world, but he hasn't said anything at all that connects them.
I can't believe I just wasted my time listening to this. I'm going to cut my losses and put on the iPod for now (Drive-By Truckers are very good). Let me know if he, like, declares war on someone else or something?
