In the interest of our national dignity I would like to formally request that our “Decider in Chief” no longer be allowed to participate in press conferences and only speak in public under the influence of a teleprompter or with written remarks prepared for him by someone with no less an education than a fifth-grader.
In a Press conference today President Bush responded to a rather simple question about how long he thought the American people would be willing to wait for him to force the Iraqi government to reach benchmark goals, with this bizarre statement:
Part of the reason why there is not this instant democracy in Iraq is because people are still recovering from Saddam HusseinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s brutal rule. I thought an interesting comment was made when somebody said to me, I heard somebody say, whereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Mandela? Well, Mandela is dead, because Saddam Hussein killed all the Mandelas. He was a brutal tyrant that divided people up and split families, and people are recovering from this. So thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a psychological recovery that is taking place. And itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s hard work for them. And I understand itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s hard work for them. Having said that, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m not going the give them a pass when it comes to the central governmentÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s reconciliation efforts.
In addition to being very much alive, Nelson Mandela has been highly critical of Bush and his Presidency saying;
Ã¢â‚¬Å“What I am condemning is that one power, with a president who has no foresight, who cannot think properly, is now wanting to plunge the world into a holocaust.Ã¢â‚¬Â[..]
Ã¢â‚¬Å“If there is a country that has committed unspeakable atrocities in the world, it is the United States of America. They donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t care.Ã¢â‚¬Â
This is really so unbelievable that seeing is the only way to believe.Ã‚Â[ev type="youtube" data="Jjlo8QR9KVY"][/ev]
