Anyone who watched President Bush's pathetic performance Thursday and still believes in him deserves what he or she gets. This man has no shame and lives in a dream world. Even Ryan Crocker and Gen. David Petraeus' recent bizarre testimony was trotted out as a tribute to his vision.
I challenge anyone, regardless of political bent, to account for the 36 allies who were referred to in this speech as fighting alongside our brave soldiers. We are fast becoming the laughingstock of this world, but the trillions of dollars spent, tens of thousands wounded and thousands killed is no laughing matter. To add insult to injury, we have to put up with this clown for some time. One can only imagine the damage that has yet to befall us under his reign of incompetence.
