[url=http://www.smirkingchimp.com/]Co-Dependent Congress Must Wake Up: The President Needs a Straight-Jacket and a Padded Cell
[/url]

by DAVE LINDORFF

It's time to simply admit the obvious: The president of the United States is crazy as a loon, and the Congress and the media are functioning as co-dependents as he runs the country off a cliff.

Bush says in his latest press conference that he is "certain" that Iran is providing "technically sophisticated" roadside bomb weapons to Iraqi insurgent forces to help them to kill Americans.

He probably is "certain." But nobody else of consequence in the government is, and the evidence to support his claim is simply not there.

Shaped charges are not sophisticated. They can be made in a garage. The technology was invented in 1888 by a Navy engineer. It was widely used in World War I and II, as well as in Vietnam, and was even provided to by the British to the IRA in a botched sting operation that led to its being disseminated around the world to every conceivable resistance and terror organization. Instructions on how to do make these weapons are available on the web. A highschool student could do it in shop if the teacher wasn't looking.


On top of that, the people who are primarily responsible for killing Americans in Iraq are Sunnis, who are certainly not the beneficiaries of Iranian government assistance, since Sunnis are killing Shias, who are the ones that Iran is close to.

That was a good article and the comments were good too. There was one line in the comments - "If I did not love my country, I would not loathe George W. Bush."- Lynx.

This is how he ends the article-
Quote:
Since the president has clearly broken the law in the case of the National Security Agency spying he ordered up, and since he has clearly abused his power and violated his oath of office with his signing statements, there is really no need for prolonged hearings. An impeachment panel could quickly vote out articles of impeachment on these two issues and send them to the full house for a vote. Were they to do this, I suspect they would find at least some honorable and patriotic Republicans voting with them. At that point the issue could go to the Senate for trial. Meanwhile, the impeachment panel could continue with hearings into Bush's other crimes and misadventures--the lying about the Iraq War, the torture authorization, the violation of habeas corpus, the cover-up of the outing of CIA agent Valerie Plame, the lies to and obstruction of the 9-11 Commission, the abandonment of New Orleans to its fate during and after Hurricane Katrina, the war profiteering in Iraq, etc., etc.

The first step, however, is to acknowledge that the president has lost his mind and has become a dangerous psychopath.


What we've got here is failure to stop a Socio/psychopath. Some men you just can't reach, so you get what we had here, this presidency, which is the way HE wants it. Well HE's got it. And I dont like it any more than you humans! (Apologies to the Captain and Luke for spoiling their lines)

Codependants and enablers of this disease always rise, like the proverbial scum that politics always stirs to the top. The good cream in this case is always too busy cleaning up the mess left by the evil scum in it's relentless pursuit of its Manichean ideals. Good and evil have got to be nurtured properly so good can appear evil and evil good!

Thus we have the government we get- An amoral vacuuous parasitic sickness that feeds itself off its own self gratifying affluence/effluence, never allowing the true nature of freedom and equality to rise up from the cauldron that is the people- The brewing pot from where the cream should rise.

I totally agree with you, DO.g's. It's unfortunate that Bush's psychopathic attitudes and behavior weren't recognized and acknowledged seriously prior to the 2004 elections. Do you think Bush could win that election today, even with stolen votes?

One thing that has been noted historically about Hitler is his complete mental decline during the last months of the Third Reich. Bush seems to be going the same way...yet Bush has two more years at the helm of this country. If those that have the power to reign him in before it's too late do not do so, they are just as responsible for the end result as Bush is.

Quote:
Like Hitler, Bush has become obsessed with his vision of conflict between good (U.S. patriotism) and evil (anti-Americanism.) Many in contact with the White House are said to be worried that he is beginning to lose touch with reality--perhaps resulting from the use of medication that seriously distorts his judgment. Possibly symptomatic of this concern is the increasing number of disaffected government officials who leak embarrassing documents.
