Or something like that.

Let's hope the International War Crimes Tribunal sets his last tour date:


Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

I keep forgetting, was it Nixon during impeachment that had a higher or lower national approval rating?

Altho the final figures won't be in until Monday, it looks like Bush will be about 28% versus Nixon's all time low of 22%. Fucker can't even win at that. I've sent him one last suggestion to put him over the top:

Well, maybe. I do have about 400 Bush thingies filed away. It might be fun to air them out one last time before putting them away.

Bush still has his admirers and backers, who continuously swallow his BS - line, hook, and sinker. In the recent CNN "Give Bush a grade" poll, 15% gave him an "A" !!!!!!! 45% gave him an "F" , 15% a "D" and the rest was split between B and C. About 500,000 people participated in the poll.

If 75% say D or worse or GREAT!, that makes sense. There are always going to be the Shrinking28 that believe he has done a wonderful job.

The comments section at the end of the speech text on faux looks remarkably like a very poorly written bukkake.
