I Question Your Patriotism, Mr. Bush
24 Aug 2005
You're a loser, Mr. Bush.
I question your patriotism Mr. Bush. I question it on your own terms. In a crass manner typical of your vacuous personality, you held up to praise a mother who has lost no children in your senseless war. You singled her out as a slap in the face of the grieving woman who did lose her son to your bad judgment and who demands an opportunity to re-question you on your senseless war. Speaking of Mrs. Pruett, you said, "Tammy has four sons serving in Iraq right now with the Idaho National Guard: Eric, Evan, Greg and Jeff. Last year her husband, Leon, and another son, Aaron, returned from Iraq, where they helped train Iraqi firefighters in Mosul." Mr. Bush, I ask you, do you have two daughters of fighting age? You do, do you not? What are they doing right now? Have any of them risked their lives for your senseless war? Is there a snowball's chance in hell that either of them will?

Mr. Bush, during the Vietnam War, another American went off to fight in your stead. Perhaps he died. He went because you used your father's influence to avoid fighting in Vietnam. While other Americans were dying in a foreign land, I believe you were drunk driving and snorting cocaine. Yes, Mr. Bush, I do question your patriotism.

What were you doing to protect Americans from terrorism before the attacks of September 11, 2001, Mr. Bush? Isn't it true that they died because you failed, once again, to defend your country when you were needed? As thousands of Americans were brutally murdered, Mr. Bush, you were listening to children's stories in front of a classroom of children. When the horror of horrors was committed against American citizens and when it was your responsibility to do something about it, you sat and continued to listen to children's stories, even though you knew what was happening. While thousands of Americans were falling from the sky and dying upon the ground, you sat there and looked stupid. I question your patriotism, Mr. Bush. You see, while you were sitting there, stupid-faced in front of classroom of children, the rest of us were either dying, trying to rescue the dying, or crying in helplessness. You, however, just sat there with your stupid face. I think that says a lot.

And while the rest of us where wondering what would happen next on that September 11, you were running chicken from one military bunker to another. I question your manhood, Mr. Bush.

You took an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States, Mr. Bush. Hardly a day passes when I do not hear of another assault on the Constitution by you and your administration Mr. Bush. I question your honor.

Most of all, Mr. Bush, I question your sanity. Before the attacks of 9/11, you stated to those on your staff that you would go to war against Iraq. After 9/11, you blamed Iraq for 9/11 and claimed that Iraq played a hand in the attacks, despite the fact that your own CIA stated otherwise. You then claimed that Iraq held weapons of mass destruction in violation of its agreements. It turns out that Iraq did not hold such weapons. When the evidence that Iraq held no such weapons was presented, you acknowledged that Iraq had no such weapons only later to inexplicably reverse your position. Face it Mr. Bush, you are either a liar or you are insane. In either case, you are not qualified to be President of the United States.

Mr. Bush, you have stated that we are bringing freedom to Iraqis. That's interesting. You see, before your illegal invasion Iraq was a secular state. Under your military dictatorship, Iraq now plans to embrace an Islamist constitution. Could you please explain to us how that represents an advancement in the freedom for Iraqis? What about Iraqi women, Mr. Bush? Will they too be freer under your puppet government?

Before your illegal invasion, Mr. Bush, you pointed out that Saddam's prisons were horrific places of rape and torture. According to the photos we've seen (photos taken by American soldiers in Iraq), your own prisons in Iraq are horrific places of rape, torture and murder. How has the death of America's young improved the freedom of Iraqis, Mr. Bush? Once again, you are either a liar or you are insane. Perhaps you are both. One thing, however, is clear. You are no patriot Mr. Bush. In fact, you are not even a man. You are a spoiled child squandering the lives of our children.

I question your patriotism, Mr. Bush.

Political correctness would be an inapproriate genre for psyops against Bush.
