Now That The Party’s Over…The Knives Can Come Out

An American Tradegy

An American Tragedy

Now that Bush is leaving office the Republicans are waiting to collectively stab him and bring an abrupt end to his reign of terror, somewhat like the tragedy that befell Caesar.  Of course Bush’s presidency was a complete failure and, in my opinion, he and his inner circle deserve some serious R&R in ADX maximum security prison.

It can not go unnoticed how utterly silent the GOP was while Bush was busy destroying our country. There was no drafting of a resolution by the RNC to show their displeasure over Bush’s mangling of the constitution, nor were their any knives being hidden in robes over such important issues as the Iraq war, the disaster of Katrina, GITMO, wiretapping, foreign policy, banking bailout, or the economic meltdown.   But now, with Bush having barely 20 some days left in office we are being besieged with remarks regarding Bush’s incompetency and failures?  There seems to be a disconnect going on with the RNC.  Bush did not end his presidency by becoming incompetent — he started off that way.  Thus were is the news in any of this outcry?

Republican Party officials say they will try next month to pass a resolution accusing President Bush and congressional Republican leaders of embracing “socialism,” underscoring deep dissension within the party at the end of Mr. Bush’s administration. [Read the full article here]

But Bush’s knife welders did not stop with just drafting a resolution.  We now have town criers coming out of the wood work.  It’s almost as if the RNC made a secret pact to come out of the closet (so to speak) and give testimony to what they thought would put them in good light with the American people.  Delusional?  Yes.  Who can easily forgive the party with the ideology that destroyed our economy?

“Katrina to me was the tipping point,” Matthew Dowd, Bush’s pollster and chief strategist for the 2004 presidential campaign, told Vanity Fair magazine. “The president broke his bond with the public. Once that bond was broken, he no longer had the capacity to talk to the American public. State of the Union addresses? It didn’t matter. Legislative initiatives? It didn’t matter. P.R.? It didn’t matter. Travel? It didn’t matter.”   [Read the full article here]

How insightful.  Too bad the American people had already known of Bush’s ineffectiveness way before Katrina happened.  Katrina was only the icing; especially, since that cake had been baked a long time ago.

Lawrence Wilkerson, top aide and later chief of staff to former Secretary of State Colin Powell, said that as a new president, Bush was like Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the 2008 GOP vice president nominee whom critics said lacked knowledge about foreign affairs. When Bush first came into office, he was surrounded by experienced advisers like Vice President Dick Cheney and Powell, who Wilkerson said ended up playing damage control for the president.

More profound insight.  Once again useless information to a public that had already become completely aware of Bush’s ineptitude. Bush received all this dated criticism within a 24 hour span.  Is there a secret memo going out called cover yourself and stab Bush as quick as you can?  Sorry Bush but the only thing you can say to your previously loyal base is Et Tu Brutus?
