“I don't say we wouldn't get our hair mussed, but I do say no more than ten to twenty million people killed.”
George C. Scott (1927 - 1999), actor, As General Buck Turgidson, referring to nuclear war with the USSR in Dr. Strangelove
My complete and utter dislike of President Bush just grows everyday and every time he opens his mouth. He so wants to be a war president so desperately that when the when Donald Rumsfeld had changed the Global War on Terror to the Global Struggle Against Violent Extremism, war President Bush immediately changed it back. Never mind that the new terminology was far more accurate.
Now our war president is comparing his situation to World War I and II, according to the Associated Press. He also recited the 9/11 date five time in a 30-minute speech. The speech was the first of two that Bush is giving this week to make his case for staying the course in Iraq. The second is Wednesday in Idaho, and in between Bush plans to take a day off at the Tamarack Resort 100 miles north of Boise, he can’t interrupt his vacation too much, even if he is trying to be a war (of his own making) president.
