Time for W to go

The sooner a new CEO of the United States is sworn in, the better.

Those of you who read my rantings and ravings over the past three years know that George “Gee Dubya” Bush isn’t my favorite president of the United States. But after reading this article about remarks he made in Israel, I think it is clearly time for our nation to move on no matter whether McCain, Obama, Hillary or Willie Nelson is elected president.

The article noted that Obama said Bush was taking a jab at him in an Israel speech warning that terrorists should not be appeased.

“We have heard this foolish delusion before. As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an American senator declared: ‘Lord, if I could only have talked to Hitler, all this might have been avoided.’ We have an obligation to call this what it is — the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history,” Bush said.

The White House, of course, denied Bush’s remarks were aimed at Obama but it seemed as if that was the case given the nature of the president’s remarks plus Obama’s past comments about meeting with some of our “enemies.” Hey, if a president wants to meet with a leader who poses a threat and tells that leader he or she should “watch their ass,” that would seem to be productive. And I know Bush is not the first president to conduct a political campaign while overseas. But that certainly doesn’t make such pronouncements groovy. Hmm, groovy, what a word.

So Bush should just confine his remarks to matters of which he has complete control, like cutting ashe juniper trees on his Crawford ranch. He should leave the politicking to the politickers, as he might say.
