Look, you guys have clearly chosen your mark. Everyone here knows that.
I can't remember a thread that does not include:
Bush is a murderer.
Bush id evil.
Bush doesn't care about (insert race here).
...or some kind of illusion to one or all of the above.
Now, I call that something way beyond criticism. It's more like compulsive slander.
Now, if your definition of criticism includes that, then you clearly enjoy the most liberal use of the language.
You clearly only want to continue the same idiotic little game that keeps you coming back to Apploutsider . . . you take your little side, pretend that that's all it is, just standing up for your side and that's all that has happened . . . .
Why don't you go away?
reread this thread, excepting your posts and the reactions to them: there is a cumulative and fairly well reasoned set of reasons why much of what unfolded infront of our eyes, slowly like a terrible nightmare, has been the result of, not just Bush, but the political/economic ideology which motivates he and his Administration . . . the set of basic misunderstandings with regards to the fundamentals of civilization, infrastructure, preparedness etc etc.
and, more specifically, why the leadership that has been exhibited has completely completely FAILED at what it has touted as being its biggest strength: namely security and preparedness for citizens of this country in times of catastrophe . . .
I am not going to re-iterate every nuance of the very real truth that has reared its head regarding the delusions of the contemporary conservative frame of mind as exhibited by this administration and you . . it has been shown clearly throughout this thread, I will say one thing, and I think you Should consider this:
General Honore is a leader, sure much of it is the work of the Press that is desperately searching for a leader in the vacuume, but another thing that differentiates real leadership from failure of leadership, is that things get done as if all the people in subordinate roles didn't even have time enough to think about them before they started to get things done.
Bush has failed in very important ways now and in the past to get important things done, to get things done in the manner I mention above with Gen Honore.
And in every case where failure of leadership could possibly be the charge- Bush, or his direct administration, has blamed someone else
, someone subordinate to him or his admin: Talent, the FBI, Bad Intel agents, Enlisted men and women for toturing . . .
Bush says it is unacceptable . . . maybe it really is unacceptable. Maye he should regard the intertwining collusion of factors that have built up to this utter failure?!?! But he won't because he is too complicit with those factors.
Do you think that
Gen Honore blames the soldiers under his watch when something goes completely wrong:?
