Bush: Willful ignorance or just a liar? Discuss...

More on this later, unless not, but I've been listening to the fluffle over Bush/Iran/nukes/Cheney as Puppetmaster (like that's a new concept), and nobody seems to be addressing what looks to me like the main point:
Bush either knew and lied, or he didn't know. There are no other possibilities.
For the life of me, I can't decide which is more likely or which would be worse: A president who pays no attention, or one who just makes crap up to support his ideology.

Here’s my question; is any of this impeachable? If it isn’t, shouldn’t it be? And if it is why isn’t the Democratic Congress at least holding hearings?. Shouldn’t they be doing something to at least slow these a**holes down? I guess that was more like four questions.

Two acronyms can explain all of this nonsense:

For Bush and Cheney:


Make shit up as you go along.

For Congress:


Because no one will question or challenge it.

And for the Press:

Yabba Dabba Doo!

--- okay, that's not an acronym but it seems to fit with the news media missing in action on just about anything political.

Now please roll the Pink Panther soundtrack ...

I have always stated that no administration could do irreversable damage in their up to 8 years of tenure. Boy, am I eating my words...

Bush is neither willful or a liar, he is just not in charge and just plain ignorant.

Dub is president in name only and the shadow government runs the country.

Bush can't remember what he did if he haven't done it, he just take the credit and don't hold press conferences so he doesn't have to answer question. And when he does answer he gets the briefings wrong.

Dub is just dumb.

To borrow from Dr. Phil..."The way you can tell if he(in this case Bush)is lying..his lips are moving"

Bush: "No recollection' of CIA tapes."

I think they call that selective memory.

I found a work-around to the long link posting problem. This seems to work on Blogger. I apologize for all my prior lame attempts to post links to stories as either reference or interest. Won't happen agian.

You have missed the point...

A rather large number of people voted to reelect GW.

Sometimes we get what we deserve, and we deserve what we get...

Recently in a chat room, there were still people arguing that there are undiscovered WMDs in Iraq and thank god we're there...

The only terror we have to fear is...terror itself...

Spot on - please keep blogging these "zingers" as you find them . The only wasy I can see to do something about all this mess is hope that the public places a larger majority in the Congress and Senate in '08.

Lied. You know I don't think much of Dear Leader's smarts, but the details of a nuke program in an "Axis of Evil" nation aren't something even he would be likely to forget.

Bigger question: Where are the 72-point headlines calling him/them out on it?

I think the answer to your question is Yes. I think he thought he knew what was going on and lied. I also think that he is no candidate for Mensa and is unwittingly being manipulated by a conservative cabal for their personal benefit.

I am firmly convinced that the United States is in Constitutional crisis. The Executive branch is in open defiance of the Constitution. On a near daily basis, it challenges the Congress to exercise its responsibilities toward maintaining the Constitution. Unfortunately, Congress does not have the intestinal fortitude to answer these challenges by filing Articles of Impeachment against Bush and Cheney.

Anyway, that's my 2-cents.
