The dim witted leader that could

I am thankful for a lot of things. Living in this wonderful country with an easy going life style and not much to really complain about, I must say everything is fine and dandy on the old homestead.

One particular person has made me appreciate this great land of ours in a way I never thought possible. I thank you, George W. Bush.

When I first read the news reports and viewed the footage of the New Orleans disaster I was mortified to say the least. Images of mothers holding screaming babies unable to provide the very basics to sustain them, and young children days without food, it is mind boggling that the world super power could not even take care of their own.

But then, this is the Bush administration we are talking about. The very same administration that cut funding for repairs to the levees that broke and consequently sank New Orleans . The same administration that made a horse show organiser the head of FEMA. And the very same administration that put a guy with little experience in national security in charge of Homeland Security.

If Bush had put qualified people in charge - not his friends - they probably would have done their jobs properly.

As we all know now, it was a full four days before the first signs of troops and aid arrived, as Bush Jr. was busy eating cake, playing guitar at a country music gig and doing television interviews.

Four days is a long time. A lot longer than the 7 minutes it took him to react to the news of New York being under attack on this very day 4 years ago. During those 4 days, celebrities and thousands of volunteers put their own relief effort into motion.

So how is it that an administration with emergency contingency plans and billions of dollars in resources is last to assist in one of the largest disasters in the country's history? We all know the answer to that.

So can the Bush administration survive another term? Not likely. The people who voted him back into the White House last election must be regretting their decision now.

A non academic of below average intelligence who puts his unqualified friends in positions of great power, has now proven beyond a doubt to be a lethal combination.

The American people are smarter now and they can see just how bad their leader is. Bush will need nothing short of a miracle handed to him to survive another term.

Luckily for America, real miracles can not be bought.

"Leave the good old US and George alone,no one here can do anything but winge"

True, but the combined whinging is what make people notice. And besides, whinging about GW is far more interesting than whinging about our own politicians. The man is without a doubt the biggest bumbling fool in living memory.

Well it will take a miracle because he can't be voted in a third time...

A few decades ago, a man from backwoods New Hampshire ran for local office without doing any campaigning whatsoever. No promises, no speeches, no political signs planted in yards. Yet he was elected. Why? Simply because his name on the ballot seemed familiar to voters -- John Adams (no relation).

Which begs the question: would the current president have been elected on his own qualifications alone if he hadn't shared the name of his famous father, which to some voters undoubtedly also seemed familiar? And if not, wouldn't that explain an awful lot about both the administration and its supporters?
