    The speech George W. Bush might give:

    Normally, I start these things out by saying 'My Fellow Americans.' Not doing it this time. If the polls are any indication, I don't know who more than half of you are anymore. I do know something terrible has happened, and that you're really not fellow Americans any longer.

    I'll cut right to the chase here: I quit. Now before anyone gets all in a lather about me quitting to avoid impeachment, or to avoid prosecution or something, let me assure you: There's been no breaking of laws or impeachable offenses in this office.

    The reason I'm quitting is simple. I'm fed up with you people. I'm fed up because you have no understanding of what's really going on in the world. Or of what's going on in this once-great nation of ours. And the majority of you are too damned lazy to do your homework and figure it out.

    Let's start local. You've been sold a bill of goods by politicians and the news media. Polls show that the majority of you think the economy is in the tank. And that's despite record numbers of homeowners, including record numbers of MINORITY homeowners. And while we're mentioning minorities, I'll point out that minority business ownership is at an all-time high. Our unemployment rate is as low as it ever was during the Clinton administration. I've mentioned all those things before, but it doesn't seem to have sunk in.

    Despite the shock to our economy of 9/11, the stock market has rebounded to record levels and more Americans than ever are participating in these markets. Meanwhile, all you can do is whine about gas prices, and most of you are too damn stupid to realize that gas prices are high because there's increased demand in other parts of the world, and because a small handful of noisy idiots are more worried about polar bears and beachfront property than your economic security.

    We face real threats in the world. Don't give me this 'blood for oil' thing. If I were trading blood for oil I would've already seized Iraq 's oil fields and let the rest of the country go to hell. And don't give me this 'Bush Lied; People Died' crap either. If I were the liar you morons take me for, I could've easily had chemical weapons planted in Iraq so they could be 'discovered.' Instead, I owned up to the fact that the intelligence was faulty.

    Let me remind you that the rest of the world thought Saddam had the goods, same as me. Let me also remind you that regime change in Iraq was official US policy before I came into office. Some guy named ' Clinton ' established that policy. Bet you didn't know that, did you? Now some of you morons are considering another and more evil Clinton for president !!!! Go figure that one!! She wants to take your kids away and let the ' Whole Village ' raise them! i.e. governmental indoctrination .. Look this one up you dumb *****!

    The rest of you morons want to be led by a junior senator with no understanding of foreign policy or economics, and this nitwit says we should attack Pakistan , a nucular ally. And then he wants to go to Iran and make peace with a terrorist who says he's going to destroy us. While he's doing that, he wants to give Iraq to al Qaeda, Afghanistan to the Taliban, Israel to the Palestinians, and your money to the IRS so the government can give welfare to illegal aliens, who he will make into citizens, so they can vote to reelect him. He also thinks it's okay for Iran to have nucular weapons, and we should stop our foreign aid to Israel . Did you sleep through high school?

    You idiots need to understand that we face a unique enemy. Back during the cold war, there were two major competing political and economic models squaring off. We won that war, but we did so because fundamentally, the Communists wanted to survive, just as we do. We were simply able to out spend and out-tech them.

    That's not the case this time. The soldiers of our new enemy don't care if they survive. In fact, they want to die. That'd be fine, as long as they weren't also committed to taking as many of you with them as they can. But they are. They want to kill you, and the *******s are all over the globe.

    You should be grateful that they haven't gotten any more of us here in the United States since September 11. But you're not. That's because you've got no idea how hard a small number of intelligence, military, law enforcement, and homeland security people have worked to make sure of that. When this whole mess started, I warned you that this would be a long and difficult fight. I'm disappointed how many of you people think a long and difficult fight amounts to a single season of 'Survivor.'

    Instead, you've grown impatient. You're incapable of seeing things through the long lens of history, the way our enemies do. You think that wars should last a few months, a few years, tops.

    Making matters worse, you actively support those who help the enemy. Every time you buy the New York Times, every time you send a donation to a cut-and-run Democrat's political campaign, well, dang it, you might just as well FedEx a grenade launcher to a Jihadist. It amounts to the same thing.

    In this day and age, it's easy enough to find the truth. It's all over the Internet. It just isn't on the pages of the New York Times, USA Today, or on NBC News. But even if it were, I doubt you'd be any smarter. Most of you would rather watch American Idol or Dancing with Stars.

    I could say more about your expectations that the government will always be there to bail you out, even if you're too stupid to leave a city that's below sea level and has a hurricane approaching.

    I could say more about your insane belief that government, not your own wallet, is where the money comes from. But I've come to the conclusion that were I to do so, it would sail right over your heads.

    So I quit. I'm going back to Crawford. I've got an energy-efficient house down there (Al Gore could only dream) and the capability to be fully self-sufficient for years. No one ever heard of Crawford before I got elected, and as soon as I'm done here pretty much no one will ever hear of it again. Maybe I'll be lucky enough to die of old age before the last pillars of America fall.

    Oh, and by the way, Cheney's quitting too. That means Pelosi is your new President. You asked for it. Watch what she does carefully, because I still have a glimmer of hope that there are just enough of you remaining who are smart enough to turn this thing around in 2008.

    So that's it. God bless what's left of America .

    Some of you know what I mean. The rest of you, kiss off.

    PS - You might want to start learning Farsi, and buy a Koran

    I wouldnt blame him :lmao:

    Bush hasnt been the greatest president by any stretch, but he is not at fault for much of what he gets blamed for. Clinton left this country in a foreign policy pothole that Bush has been trying to climb out of for almost a decade.

    Bush should also mention the idiots in New Orleans who were to stupid to heed the warnings and get out. Too stupid to buy flood insurance. Now, these idiots want the government to pay for everything.

    Yeah, that actually sounds like the kind of lunacy mixed with ignorance Dubya would come up with...

    He told us we should invade Iraq because they had WMDs... they didn't...

    The economy is in the toilet, in large part because of the deficit spending necessary to wage his bogus war... this has led to a weak dollar, and rapidly rising inflation...

    Even if he's 100 per cent innocent of the other things he takes blame for (and he isn't), those two alone indict him as a LOUSY president...

    Our foreign policy has been a flaming DISASTER under Dubya... now, we're despised around the world with a greater intensity than we ever have been, and the leaders of our staunchest allies have lost their jobs for supporting us, so even our allies are not as close as they once were...

    WAY TO GO, Dubya...

    They either died or permanently relocated to Texas. "Ethnic cleansing" George Bush-style. Pitiful.

    Not sure how much the WMD really matter.

    The war was about stabilizing the Middle East (and probably a test run to see how things might unfold in Iran).

    Now, if you want to blame him for how he handled Iraq......go right ahead. He nearly ****ed Iraq up. Which is why I can't wait for him to get out of office (among other reasons). Iran is going to be a problem in the future; and Bush....well, if war with Iran is indeed imminent.... I want Bush nowhere near it.

    Brilliant Speech.


    To bad it wasn't real then this idiot would be gone already.

    He still has seven more months to screw things up even worse.

    No, it is called piss poor city and state government.

    The city was supposed to have a plan and so did the state. And it wasn't to step back and let the federal government take control. What did they do? Not a freaking thing, but delay what help had arrived and then spent the rest of the time pointing fingers and complaining.

    No that was brought to you by the Mayor of New Orleans and the Governor of Louisiana.

    It is not as if there were multiple successful attacks on the U.S. before 9/11. The same small number of intelligence, military and law enforcement worked to prevent attacks before 9/11 as well and were able to defend the country from some proposed attacks.

    And why is it still a "small" number? Why hasn't that grown?

    Actually, Bush and his crew did not say it would be a long and difficult fight. We were told over and over that it would be short, that it would pay for itself and that we would be treated as liberators.

    Well since Bush brags that he doesn't read or watch the news, how would he know what the Times or any other publications say. I doubt the guy can even surf the net.

    I agree that Bush doesn't recognize half of America. He doesn't even recognize the republican party. He certainly doesn't live up to the ideals of that party. He sees only what he wants to see and has never been open to anyone with a slightly different view.

    He came in claiming to be the uniter. Instead the country is more divided than ever. And that is after everyone did unite together after 9/11. He had a great chance to do something special and he pissed it away.

    This is what people always conveniently forget.

    After 9/11 when he was on top of the WTC rubble and saying that the people who did this would soon hear from all of us...I was cheering the guy and TOTALLY backed him on that.

    EVERYONE was behind the guy. At that time.

    Problem is...Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11 and Afghanistan where the people who really caused 9/11 to happen are has been relegated to the forgotten War behind Iraq.

    It didn't have to be and as you say he pissed it away.

    Unlikely, CC... note that Congress just overrode another Dubya veto yesterday... the Senate vote was 80-14, which is REALLY rubbin' Dubya's nose in it...

    He's pretty much irrelevant already... he can't even count on the legislators in his own party any more...

    So you don't think Bush has the pull to get congress to authorize a War with Iran before he leaves?

    Geez - I'm just pwned here. Guess there's nothing left for me but to go to my room, don the tinfoil, and sit in a corner. How humiliating.

    Do much reading, zrin?
