Even before his bungling response to a financial crisis that threatens to plunge this country into a full-blown depression, President George Bush had already assured himself the title of the biggest failure in Presidential history.
The Iraq war, Hurricane Katrina and many other failures sealed his membership in the Political Hall of Shame. The collapse of America’s economy just adds more evidence that Bush is, without a doubt, the worst in a long line of failed leaders of what once was a great country.
It doesn’t matter if Bush’s badly-conceived bailout plan passes Congress or not. He has completed his mission of destroying this nation, gutting it from the inside, eviscerating our freedoms, trampling our rights and burying a once-admired notion of a country.
Osama bin Laden’s goal when he sent his fanatics to crash planes into the World Trade Center, Pentagon and other buildings was to strike at the heart of America’s strength – our economy. He wounded us to be sure but it took Bush and his gang of crooks, thieves, con-artists and scoundrels to complete the mission.
Our Constitution lies in shreds on floor, ready to be gathered up and flushed into the political sewer that is Washington, Our rights disappeared into that sewer long ago, buried under mounts of partisan, putrid excrement that pours out of the rectums of the politically extreme.
We are a nation drowning in the diarrhea of distraction, suffocated by a government of greed. If there was an escape route, it disappeared into the sewer long ago.
When he finally leaves office on Jan. 20, 2009, Bush will leave behind a broken, dysfunctional government that cannot be repaired by one man or woman or even an army of true reformers, even if such an army existed on either side of the political spectrum.
Congress under Democratic rule remains the same muddled, myopic mess that existed under GOP leadership. Neither party can put aside partisanship long enough to show any true concern or love of country. Elected leaders who put party above country betray the Constitution they swore to uphold. Both parties fail on this crucial test.
Bush spent months denying a recession existed even as the country slid closer and closer to a full-fledged depression. Now, when the end is near, he offers up a plan to plunge a deficit-ridden nation further into debt in a risky venture to save a system that most likely cannot be saved.
It will be the final nail into the coffin that will serve forever as the symbol of the Presidency of George W. Bush.
Sadly, that coffin will not be used to bury Bush.
It will be needed to bury the remains of the nation he destroyed.
