We all have our disagreements with President Bush.. Immigration, U.S.
Attorney firings, Iraq , Darfur , etc., are all hot topics these days.
The following "speech" was written recently by an ordinary Maineiac [a
Resident of the People's Republic of Maine ]. While satirical in
Nature, all satire must have a basis in fact to be effective. This is an
Excellent piece by a person who does not write for a living.
The speech George W. Bush SHOULD give: BUSH'S RESIGNATION SPEECH
Normally, I start these things out by saying "My Fellow Americans."
Not doing it this time. If the polls are any indication, I don't know who
More than half of you are anymore. I do know something terrible has
Happened, and that you're really not fellow Americans any longer.
I'll cut right to the chase here: I quit. Now before anyone gets all
In a lather about me quitting to avoid impeachment, or to avoid prosecution
Or something, let me assure you: There's been no breaking of laws or
Impeachable offenses in this office.
The reason I'm quitting is simple. I'm fed up with you people. I'm
Fed up because you have no understanding of what's really going on in the
World. Or of what's going on in this once-great nation of ours. And
The majority of you are too lazy to do your homework and figure it out.
Let's start local. You've been sold a bill of goods by politicians and
The news media. Polls show that the majority of you think the economy is
In the tank.. And that's despite record numbers of homeowners, including
Record numbers of MINORITY homeowners. And while we're mentioning
Minorities, I'll point out that minority business ownership is at an
All-time high. Our unemployment rate is as low as it ever was during
The Clinton administration. I've mentioned all those things before, but it
Doesn't seem to have sunk in.
Despite the shock to our economy of 9/11, the stock market has
Rebounded to record levels and more Americans than ever are participating in
These markets. Meanwhile, all you can do is whine about gas prices, and most
Of you are too stupid to realize that gas prices are high because there's
Increased demand in other parts of the world, and because a small
Handful of noisy idiots are more worried about polar bears and beachfront
Property than your economic security.
We face real threats in the world. Don't give me this "blood for oil"
Thing. If I were trading blood for oil I would've already seized Iraq's
Oil fields and let the rest of the country go to ... . And don't give
Me this 'Bush Lied; People Died' crap either. If I were the liar you
Morons take me for, I could've easily had chemical weapons planted in Iraq so
They could be 'discovered.' Instead, I owned up to the fact that the
Intelligence given to me by the previous administration was faulty.
Let me remind you that the rest of the world thought Saddam had the
Goods, same as I did. Let me also remind you that regime change in Iraq was
Official US policy before I came into office. Some guy named ' Clinton'
Established that policy. Bet you didn't know that, did you?
You idiots need to understand that we face a unique enemy. Back during
The cold war, there were two major competing political and economic models
Squaring off. We won that war, but we did so because fundamentally,
The Communists wanted to survive, just as we do We were simply able to
Outspend and out-tech them.
That's not the case this time. The soldiers of our new enemy don't
Care if they survive. In fact, they want to die That'd be fine, as long as
They weren't also committed to taking as many of you with them as they
Can. But they are. They want to kill you, and the fools are all over
You should be grateful that they haven't gotten any more of us here in
The United States since September 11. But you're not. That's because
You've got no idea how hard a small number of intelligence, military, law
Enforcement, and homeland security people have worked to make sure of
That. When this whole mess started, I warned you that this would be a
Long and difficult fight. I'm disappointed how many of you people think a
Long and difficult fight amounts to a single season of 'Survivor.'
Instead, you've grown impatient. You're incapable of seeing things
Through the long lens of history, the way our enemies do. You think
That wars should last a few months, a few years, tops.
Making matters worse, you actively support those who help the enemy.
Every time you buy the New York Times, every time you send a donation to a
cut-and-run Democrat's political campaign, well, dang it, you might
just as well FedEx a grenade launcher to a Jihadist. It amounts to the same
In this day and age, it's easy enough to find the truth. It's all over
the Internet. It just isn't on the pages of the New York Times or on ABC
or NBC News. But even if it were, I doubt you'd be any smarter. Most of
you would rather watch "American Idol".
I could say more about your expectations that the government will
always be there to bail you out, even if you're too stupid to leave a city
that's below sea level and has a hurricane approaching.
I could say more about your insane belief that government, not your own
wallet, is where the money comes from. But I've come to the conclusion
that were I to do so, it would sail right over your heads.
So I quit. I'm going back to Crawford. I've got an energy-efficient
house down there (Al Gore could only dream) and the capability to be
fully self-sufficient. No one ever heard of Crawford before I got elected,
and as soon as I'm done here pretty much no one will ever hear of it again.
Maybe I'll be lucky enough to die of old age before the last pillars of
Oh, and by the way, Cheney's quitting too. That means Pelosi is your
new President. You asked for it.
Watch what these folks do carefully, because I still have a glimmer of
hope that there are just enough of you remaining who are smart enough
to turn this thing around in 2008.
So that's it. God bless what's left of America; Some of you know
what I mean.
The rest of you, get a life.

looking at the gaggle of Demos we have running for President, I thought it worth anoher look. It think it pretty well says it all.
