Dear George

December 13th, 2006 | by Omnipotent Poobah |

For Chrissakes George, make a fricking decision!

It’s not hard. You have two choices in Iraq - the way out or the way backward. You’ve pretty much burned out reverse in the finely-tuned racing machine you call your administration and the only ones left who still believe there is a “way forward” are you and Mark David Chapman, you delusional half wit! It’s too late to wake up and smell the coffee, you need to wake up and feel the coffee pot as 75% of the American population whacks you over the head with it.

You’ve had four solid years of bungled mess heaped upon bungled mess. Daddy Warbucks 41 even sent an entire army of advisors to tell you how much you suck and are screwing the pooch. And now, you need more time so still more advisors can tell you what any self-respecting, lobotomized savant should already know?

George, I have to tell you, this is such a stunningly lame move that it makes your response to Katrina look like Jesus feeding the masses with the loaves and fishes. Even against the backdrop of the Bush Family scrapbook this looks bad…real bad George.

Listen to me, because I really do want you to do the right thing. The sun rises in the east and sets in the west. You can demand that the sun rise in the west and set in the east - but trust me on this George - it ain’t gonna happen. Iraq is the same way. You can stamp your feet, hold your breath, and scream like a banshee about victory - but George, it just…ain’t…gonna…happen.

I know you think God will to speak to you as you claim He always does in a crisis. But George? That’s just Laura’s snoring you hear. And if God really is telling you to act this way, IGNORE HIM! If He’s the one leading you on (and I’m pretty confident He’s not), He has all the credibility of a child molester holding a bag of Tootsie Rolls. Treat His advise accordingly.

George, for the love of God, make a decision. I know that requires thoughts that are complete anathema to you. I know you’ve never had to make a decision before. I know that you’re used to having Dad and Bar wipe your ass and clean up every goddamn mess you’ve ever made in your worthless frat boy life.

I know. Believe me, I know. We ALL know.

But there are big stakes here George. Thousands of people will die based on your words and the speed with which you choose them. The world teeters on the brink of a very bad and ugly maw of death while you ponder the thumb wedged tightly in your ass.

Maybe none of these things mean anything to you. Maybe your simple, gerbil-like mind can’t comprehend them. But dammit man, this is important! Get hold of yourself and do something! Hell, we’ll even pretend that this whole sorry-assed affair was the great triumph it is in your mind if that’ll help soothe your brusied ego. Just do something.

George, we’re begging you here. All 300 million of us are on bended knee asking you to grow a goddamn spine and make a fricking decision. It’s a big decision, but a very simple request.

Do the right thing for once George, just do the right goddamn thing!

    On January 3, this becomes the Nancy and Harry War.  They can try to convince Congress to stop funding the War, and to override the expected veto.  The longer they stall, the longer they hem and haw, the longer they dawdle, the longer they play politics, the longer it takes them to convince the whole Congress to do this, well…you get the picture. 

    Enjoy the Nancy and Harry War.

    SteveIL, sorry, it will always be Bush’s war. This one is a little bigger then the debacle 41 dumped in Clintons lap!

    No, Steve O.  Doesn’t work that way.  It never worked that way.  A war went only as far as Congress let it go.  They have to decide to fund it or not.  You can continue to say it’s Bush’s war, but that would be perpetuating a lie.

    If you want to feeeel better, call the first 42 months the Dennis and Bill war.  That way, you can continue to deny the responsibility of those Democrats that also voted for it.

    SteveIL,

    So, just to be clear, you’re saying that the Commander-in-Chief has no responsibility for the war and that the Congress is in charge of military operations because that wasn’t how I thought things worked?

    Steve IL,

    Trust me, Nancy and Harry are asshats too, I’m just as teed off at EVERYONE who voted for this mess. But as Cranky Brit points out, it is The Frat Boy who is responsible for taking us there and keeping us there. Constitutionally, the Prez conducts wars, the Congress pays for them.

    So if YOU want to FEEEEEL better, I can change the title to Dear Asshats who voted for this shitty mess. Or maybe Dear SteveIL who voted for this loony bastard to begin with.

    “Get the picture?”

    Paul,

    The President is the Commander-in-Chief.  His job is to run the military.  It is Congress’s job to fund it.  Wars cost money.  If they don’t provide the funding for this or that operation, then the Commander-in-Chief can’t very well run said military operation.

    That’s fine.

    You know where Bush is responsible?  In keeping generals on the battlefield that are not winning.  How many generals in command of the Army of the Potomac did Lincoln go through before settling on Meade (Grant was never commander of that unit, but was Meade’s boss as overall Union military commander and had responsibility for all theaters; he traveled with Meade and led the overall effort in the east, somewhat relegating Meade to a secondary role)?  McDowell (although it wasn’t called the Army of the Potomac while he was in command), McClellan (twice), Pope, Burnside, and Hooker.  The sixth general and seventh command change in a little over two years.  How many CENTCOM commanders have there been these past 5 years?  Two.  And we aren’t doing too well in Afghanistan either.  Therefore, the blame for military failures can be laid at Bush’s doorstep.
