The President Announces He’s a Dictator

M - Still the Moron In a 60 Minutes interview that was supposed to gain support for sending 21,000 more troops to Iraq (we should say “back to Iraq” since most of the 21,000 have already been to Iraq 2, 3—some even 4 times), Bush said Congress cannot stop him from sending the troops.

I think that means we have a dictator now, right? Actually, I think we’ve had a virtual dictator for some time, but the dictator now openly admits he’s a dictator.

As to the Decider’s decision to send the troops, and the alleged Congressional impotence to stop him, Bush said, “Frankly, that’s not their responsibility.”

Asked if he believes that he has the authority to order troops to Iraq in the face of congressional opposition, Bush said, “In this situation, I do, yeah. I fully understand they could try to stop me from doing it. But I made my decision, and we’re going forward.”

Dictator, right?

No Apologies

Asked if he owes Iraqi people an apology for not doing a better job, Bush said, “Not at all…We liberated that country from a tyrant. I think the Iraqi people owe the American people a huge debt of gratitude.”

Lying

Asked about lying, Bush said, “I strongly reject that this administration hasn’t been straight with the American people. The minute we found out they didn’t have weapons of mass destruction, I was the first to say so.

That’s a lie, too. Intelligence sources, policy makers and weapons inspectors now admit it was widely known that Iraq had no WMD within three weeks of Baghdad falling. Bush kept quiet about WMD for months after he knew there were none. He definitely was NOT the first to say so.

Hanging

As for the hanging of Saddam, Bush said he watched the video, but looked away before the ousted dictator fell through the trap door of the gallows.

Give me a break. Clinton inhaled, and everyone knows you watched the complete Saddam video, George…

    Agree with you 100%. Said the same thing, but you came up with the right word. DICTATOR and that is exactly how he sounded.

  2. Brent says:

    Remember, this is the guy that couldn’t think of a single mistake he made in the first 5 years as President. He still hasn’t come out and said, “I made this certain mistake”.

  3. Joe says:

    And remember that press conference in November, when Bush said:

    “I told Congresswoman Pelosi that I look forward to working with her and her colleagues to find common ground in the next two years.”

    Saying that congress can’t stop him from doing what he wants is hardly working together. Sure, there’s checks and balances and the President has certain powers, but Congress has the power to cut off money for specific things. If Bush goes ahead and sends the troops (and that costs money) without Congress’s financial approval, that’s a dictatorship no matter what you call it.
