How to be dumb
I will not pretend that I have anything unique or new to add on the subject of President Embarassment, however I am amazed at how so many people on the left whimper and stomp their feet when the man consistently does what he says he's going to do.
Like appoint conservative assholes to important posts such as the U.N. or the Supreme Court.
Take this Bolton jagoff for example. Just because he had a few hits on the adult contemporary charts in the 90s doesn't mean he can shit all over the concept of collective security. Seriously though, having creditability on the foreign stage has never been a concern for our president.
And why should he care what other nations think about U.S. actions? He asserted over and over that not only did he put in a lot of "hard work" but he knows unequivocally "how these people think."
The world thinks he's a scumbag, and he could clearly give a fuck.
I can't help but contrast Bush's administration with his predecessor. Granted this was pre-9/11, and the Utopian 90s, but Clinton put an awful lot of his foreign policy eggs in the Israeli/Palestinian peace process basket. A lot of people then and now see that as the key to relative stability in the MidEast (big ass emphasis on the relative.) That's some hard work that isn't sexy enough for the evening news and bores the hell out of the average American. Most importantly, I think Toby Keith would be hard-pressed to write a song about it. God knows, the red staters love their songs telling them how to feel about their country!
Now that I think about it, maybe we are being too hard on Haliburton and the like. Maybe the military/industrial complex Eisenhower warned us of was really the military/country music industrial complex.
