President Bush is no longer his “own man”. Throughout his 1st term and into his second, President Bush touted that he stood by his convictions, a man of principle. He ran for re-election as a President who claimed that he’d never waver when he sets his mind to something. He has said that he’ll say what he means and mean what he says…
However, Thursday, October 27, 2005 – proved that he lied about that as well. President Bush is no longer “his own man”, and now it can be argued that he never was his own man. He is now under control of the religious right with his acceptance of Harriet Miers resignation of nomination to the Supreme Court. You know you have problems when your own party won’t back your decision-making.
Many people would claim that President Bush has always been a puppet of various groups or people (i.e. – Karl Rove). Maybe, due to the corruption that has been running rapid through Bush’s administration – maybe his puppeteers were so preoccupied with being investigated that they dropped the strings of Puppet Bush, I mean President Bush. In doing so, Bush took some liberties with his Supreme Court Nomination (i.e. – nominating a friend). The Republican Party and “religious” right are foaming at the mouth for a fight over a Supreme Court Nominee. They want, in the worst way, to push the nuclear button and invoke the nuclear option. They want to have nothing but rubble and devastation left of our government. Once that occurs they will turn the reins over to corporations. We will be a country of the CEO’s for the CEO’s and by the CEO’s.
Bush has lost control of his own party. How can he lead?
We are starting to see the cracks in the foundation of lies Bush and his administration have built.
What is next for our President?
I remember back to Clinton’s impeachment. They impeached a President for lying under oath about a personal matter that didn’t affect the country. Our current President has been telling lie after lie and it has cost us all greatly. He claimed that he’d restore integrity to the White House… He hasn’t and he won’t. Corruption breads corruption. Karl Rove was corrupt and has bread corruption through Bush.
