Why Oh Why Are We Ruled by These Morons?
Impeach George W. Bush. Impeach him now.
History News Network: Rick Shenkman: Bush's Blinders: At one of the most important moments of his presidency--his meeting with Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah at the Crawford ranch in the spring of 2005--the president failed to address any of the points the Saudis had indicated beforehand they wanted to discuss. Shrewd bargaining? Not according to Ron Suskind's new book (which I heartily recommend): The One Percent Doctrine. Bush didn't address the Saudi's agenda because he hadn't been told about it. The Saudi wish list had gone to Cheney not Bush.
As Suskind puts it, this was a major blunder. This was arguably in the age of terrorism one of the most important meetings Bush was to have.
Simple oversight? Suskind's story is that Cheney is driving our foreign policy. This story is just one of many examples he uses to make the case. I should mention what the Saudis wanteed. They wanteed some sign that the administration would act as more of a neutral broker in the Middle East Palestinian/Israeli conflict. Bush gave them nadda.
You know, it would be so nice to hava a real president.
