The Prez Can’t Change, So Forget That Idea

Stop kidding yourself if you had hopes the President of the United States would alter his course. An intervention was held. The president said whatever he needed to say to get the well-meaning friends and addiction professionals off his back. But he only pretended to go into rehab. Which was fine by his new Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates and the rest of the White House Winged Monkey Brigade. The President of the United States is addicted to his delusions. And the White House, the Generals in Iraq, the Bush administration, the Pentagon and John McCain are addicted to the power that George W. Bush’s delusions have given them. None can give up their addictions. Were George W. Bush to say he was wrong, or that the Iraq war was wrong, or even that we need to pull out of Iraq sooner rather than later and that additional troops will serve no purpose, the Prez believes he would sink into a puddle at his own feet and cease to exist like the Wicked Witch in the Wizard of Oz. Were his sycophants and neocons to say the Prez was wrong, they believe their mojo would cease to exist and the Winkies would usurp their powerbase in the Emerald City in Washington, DC. And the whole hilarious thing is, George W. Bush has already sunk into a puddle at his own feet, the mojo of Karl Rove, the White House, the Pentagon, the Bush administration, the Secretary of Defense, the Generals, and all the rest of the flying monkeys in the Republican Party has already gone into the ether from whence it came. And the Democrats are back in power. And if you don’t believe the Republican monkeys have lost their mojo, wait until you see the flurry of subpoenas and investigations that will hit Washington, DC after the New Year.

I truly hope that this will be the case--more or less the unfortunate occurance of "forced change" as it were. I honestly wonder at times what the legacy of this president will be fifty years down the line.
