"The President"


I was listening to an interview with your Rice this morning, Bush. She was going on in that scolding, "I can't-beleve-you-don't-get-this" tone about "the President" this and "the President" that, and I realized that I cringe inwardly every time I hear those words applied to you. I don't like to think of myself as a Bush basher, but every time I hear "the President" applied to your good self... I don't know. Is it disbelief? Anger? Something comes up that is deeply rooted in a sense of usurpation, of a man acting in a position far beyond his capacity and desserts, something fraudulent and incongruous. You are now, it seems to me, virtually the only man in America--no, the world--who clings vainly to the belief that you are somehow a capable "decider" and "leader", that you know what you're doing up there in the elevated position of this country's highest office. I have to confess that see it all as a sham. Which is why, then I hear those two words, "the President", I feel that cringing sensation in the gut. "The President?" I wonder. "What President? You mean... Bush?"

With blind love, anyone or anything can be supported no matter what others say or reality reveals. Right Ms. Rice.

I think Bush is delusional enough to believe his God is just testing HIM right now. Its not about the world community of humans, it is about his personal God given mandate. Not, as the democratic President of America but rather as God's approved Representative on Earth.

Kind of like the Pope with the worlds most powerful military.

Anonymous,

1.) The screen-name is not meant to be fake but rather allude to a humane way of looking at fellow humans on Earth. (Kind of interesting complaint coming from anonymous. I guess that says more then anything)
2.) I welcome you to provide any updated information.
3.) You are not listening but reading

Best wishes.

Gringo, it would really be nice if you could leave your link to your blog site and not blog within someone else's blog. You have enough passion for what you believe to do that. At least we wouldn't be ripped apart every time we come into the comment section to comment on Peters blog. That is what this section is for, Peter... Most of the time you are not even commenting on anything Peter has to post. It's one thing to disagree, it's another to take over someones blog with your own personal agenda... Don't mean to hurt your feelings, but it is getting real old... Have a peaceful evening Gringo.
