Bush Bash Fridays


I swear I don't know whether to laugh, cry, or move to Europe.

Without a doubt the Worst. President. Ever.

If you haven't heard about this whole warrantless wire-tapping business, I suggest you crawl out from under that rock and pay attention. This is fate-of-the-world stuff when you have a guy like this with launch codes at his fingertips and an effed-up sense of right and wrong.

If you're American, for Pete's sake, get out and vote.

From the Toronto Star:

CAMP DAVID, Md. — President George W. Bush said those who agree with a federal judge that his warrantless surveillance program is unconstitutional "simply do not understand the nature of the world in which we live."

"This country of ours is at war," Bush said today. "And we must give those whose responsibility it is to protect the United States the tools necessary to protect this country in a time of war."

The day before, a federal judge in Michigan struck down the National Security Agency's warrantless wiretapping program, ruling it was an unconstitutional infringement on the right to privacy and free speech. On Bush's orders, the Justice Department appealed within hours.


Honestly, just what country is this guy talking about? I thought the U.S. was supposed to be about Freedom and all that. You can't defend freedom by denying freedom! You're defending America and all it stands for but ignoring the Constitution? WTF?


Besides, no one is saying you can't wiretap - you just need a warrant. You know, that whole "legal" thing. What a pain in the arse, eh?

How has this guy not been impeached? High crimes and misdemeanors, indeed.

Experience has already shown that the impeachment the Constitution has provided is not even a scarecrow.
