Musings 200--Olbermann counts down on Bush.

Countdown with Keith Olbermann will be nifty tonight. Olbermann will either demand that the president and vice president resign or be impeached. It should be good for the rating--Keith always delivers to those of us that can't stand the Bushies.

Poor little Paris Hilton spent three weeks in the slammer for breaking probation for driving without a license. Scooter Libby spends nothing for lying and obstruction of justice. Bushie thought that it was excessive. Damn, Paris should have called Bushie and complained.

There were about 152 executions of bad guys under Bush's two terms of governor in Texas. It is even recorded that he joked and smart-mouthed about some of them. It has been reported that the main reason for not commuting some of those 152 scorchings was that he didn't want to interfere with the judicial system. Damn, the boy has grown in his outlook on life. Oh well, better late than never.

I guess the reason that Bush sleeps well at night, knowing that nearly 3,600 soldiers have died because of his folly, is that after the first 152 it gets easier.

Well, anyway, Keith will lay it on him tonight. Bush and Cheney won't be watching. They'll be sleeping...like babies.

Musings 199--Bush becomes a judge.

Months ago, I said that George W. Bush would pardon Scooter Libby. Yesterday he commuted his sentence. That means he will do no jail time. The pardon will come when Bushie leaves office. It will just be a bit of late house cleaning.

Bushie has always come across to the public as a big law and order guy. Well, means that he is for law and order when it is the little guy. When his guys have their tits in the wringer, then he believes in different standards. The rich elite have different rules. Hell, his people have been saying that for years. Of course, when you look behind the curtain you find that Bushies and his crowd are the rich elite. (That's why they can say that with confidence. They understand it, but want you to think it is only Kennedy, Kerry and Clinton.)

It is now time to impeach both Bush and Dick Cheney. Obviously, James Madison, a constitutional founder, would agree:

"[If] the President be connected, in any suspicious manner, with any person, and there be grounds to believe he will shelter him, the House of Representatives can impeach him; they can remove him if found guilty," observed the man whose notes provide the essential outline of the deliberations of the Constitutional convention. "

The above statement was Madison writing about his views on impeachment. When Clinton was being considered for impeachment, the same quote was tossed about carelessly. Well, let us now start tossing again.

George W. Bush and Dick Cheney are men that actually feel that they are above the law. The evidence is clear. Wouldn't it be great to prove them wrong.

Bush had no compassion for anyone in Texas when he was governor. He sent criminals to death without so much as a blink. The courts had set their fate and he did not want to interfere. Well, the court said that Libby was guilty of perjury and obstruction of justice. Now George doesn't like it. Now he becomes the judge and jury. Wow, ain't it amazing when you don't get your way. But, when you are president, you just change things to your way.

This bastard has a lot to answer for. Hopefully, it will be in this life.

Musings 198--They've been bringing it on...

I don't know if anyone cares or not, but today is the fourth anniversary of President George W. Bush making his famous...or infamous...comment, "bring them on."

Nearly 3,500 dead soldiers later, I wonder if he feels that they have brought it on yet? My old daddy told me that mouthy people tended to get into trouble faster than thoughtful but quiet ones. Methinks he was right. George has been mouthy and stubborn--we call it narrow-minded here in the Ohio Valley. And, he has had America in trouble his whole presidency with no end in sight.

Here is the entire quote from this date in 2003: Well, first of all, we'll put together a force structure who meets the threats on the ground. And we've got a lot of forces there, ourselves. And as I said yesterday, anybody who wants to harm American troops will be found and brought to justice. There are some who feel like that if they attack us that we may decide to leave prematurely. They don't understand what they're talking about, if that's the case.

Let me finish. There are some who feel like -- that the conditions are such that they can attack us there. My answer is, bring them on. We've got the force necessary to deal with the security situation. Of course we want other countries to help us -- Great Britain is there, Poland is there, Ukraine is there, you mentioned. Anybody who wants to help, we'll welcome the help. But we've got plenty tough force there right now to make sure the situation is secure. We always welcome help. We're always glad to include others in. But make no mistake about it -- and the enemy shouldn't make any mistake about it -- we will deal with them harshly if they continue to try to bring harm to the Iraqi people.

I also said yesterday an important point, that those who blow up the electricity lines really aren't hurting America, they're hurting the Iraq citizens; their own fellow citizens are being hurt. But we will deal with them harshly, as well.

Well, the Brits have drawn down and where are the Poles and the Ukraines? The bad guys have brought it on and the dead are stacking up. You done a hell of a job, George.
