George Bush is an Idiot: Part MCMXXLIVVI - The Collapse of the Republican Regime

George Bush's remarks about Obama and Democrats being like Nazi appeasers demonstrate clearly was his has never been a fit Commander-in-Chief.

"Some seem to believe we should negotiate with terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along," said Bush...

"We have heard this foolish delusion before," Bush said in remarks to the Israeli Knesset. "As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an American Senator declared: 'Lord, if only I could have talked to Hitler, all of 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."

I will grant that many Democrats can be guilty of appeasement, but it's a different fascist regime they have been complicit with rolling over for. That would be the Republican regime. But Bush is an idiot when it comes to just about anything. He's ignorant of historical facts, as demonstrated by these remarks. It is clear that he is just as weak looking at past events as he is imagining future events. His short-sightedness is breathtaking, only equaled by the astonishingly similarly short-sighted John McCain.

As Bush, the current leader of America's own fascist regime, compares Obama to Nazi appeasers, these words in this recent article by Gary Hart could not be more timely.

Historians of early 21st century American politics will remark the degree to which radical forces, usually called neoconservatives, perverted language as recommended by the National Socialist Party in 1930s Germany. Continue to demonize liberals, blame them for all social and economic problems, and soon enough no one will be willing to admit to being a liberal. Claim that liberals and Democrats are too soft to combat terrorists and soon enough a majority, even in the oldest democracy on earth, will believe it. Open up entire electronic networks, such as Fox, and chains of radio stations, such as Clear Channel, and buy enough newspaper chains, and make all these media available to pre-programmed neoconservative ditto heads, and sure enough a subculture will emerge which distrusts its own government and believes that an entire political party is not to be trusted.

This has all happened before. And where it has happened, authoritarian government emerges. Worst of all, a formerly "maverick" Republican, one who was sensible enough to understand the dangerous perversions involved in this radicalization of American politics, will find himself repeating the idiotic mantra that we are "fighting al Qaeda in Iraq so we don't have to fight them here."


If John McCain seriously believes we are at war with al Qaeda in Iraq, that alone is such a serious error in judgment as to rank him with George W. Bush at his worst and therefore disqualify him from any chance to govern this country.

George Bush is the very reason why the Republican regime will get trounced in the general election. If George Bush thought that 2006 was a "thumpin'!" then 2008 will be utter humiliation. Guess where all that blame is going to be (appropriately) laid?

I will say this. George W. Bush is a disgrace to this country. Everyone who has voted for him, or continues to support him are a disgrace to this country. Come November, they will all know it as the Republican regime is crippled, and is once again marginalized as the permanent minority party as it was for the better part of the 20th century.

As John McCain irrevocably ties his political fortunes (and misfortunes) to George Bush's presidency, and runs for Bush's third term, promising more of the same failed policies, he will be deservedly held in the same abysmal regard as #43. Good riddance.
