Even Conservative Republicans call Bush "a functional illiterate." (english)

Even Conservative Republicans call Bush "a functional illiterate." They're catching on!

Looks like EVERYBODY is beginning to realize that Bu$h is a drunken, monkey-faced idiot.
It is a well-known fact America's current president hates to read. He is the closest person to a functional illiterate we have ever had in the in the Oval Office. However, Bush claims to be a Christian...although I sincerely have my doubts.

One of the earliest lessons children are taught in Sunday school is the parable where Jesus warned us to build our house on a rock and not on sand. In Bush's case, the rock is truth and the sand is the lies and obfuscations of the NeoCon hawks advising him. Truth will out and liars will pay the price. The Bible also warns us of false prophets and wolves in sheep's clothing. That does not apply to merely religious topics.

In this, the age of the Internet, it is impossible for public figures to lie and not have their words come back to haunt them. God and search engines will get 'em every time!

This past week or so has been very interesting for the Bush administration...filled with denials, outright lies, obfuscations and just plain crawfishing.

Congress finally grew some cajones. Both sides of the aisle are screaming over the mess in Iraq, its cost in lives and dollars. There are bipartisan calls for the collective heads of Messrs. Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz and Feith.

Bush's poll ratings are heading south with no signs of stopping. Americans are saying we are spending too much in treasure and lives in Iraq. Only 44% think Dubya deserves to be re-elected. 68% don't want $87 billion spent on Iraq...much less the next go round already in the works. 82% of Americans want immigration brought to a screeching halt and our borders secured. Over 70% say American jobs should be protected. 176 cities and counties, plus three states have now passed anti-Patriot Act resolutions or legislation, yet Bush and Ashcroft ignore it...saying it is only a leftist phenomena.

California is in a major fiscal crisis, yet the NeoCons are backing Arnold when only a true conservative -- McClintock -- can save the fifth largest economy in the world.

Not only will Bush loose the 2004 election, the Republicans will lose their majority in both houses of Congress and probably their gubenatorial majority. They deserve to. By deserting their conservative, libertarian and constitutional base of voters, millions of us will not vote Republican in the next election. So be it. Perhaps it is the only thing that can force the Republican Party to the right in the political spectrum.

I am a Goldwater Republican -- not a Rockefeller/Eastern Establishment "Republican." They can take their globalism and imperialism and shove it where the sun don't shine! I will vote a write in ticket for Ron Paul/ Tom Tancredo.
