The following "speech" was written yesterday by an ordinary human. While satirical in nature, all satire must have a basis in fact to be effective. An excellent piece by a person who does not write for a living.

Sent with the author's permission.

The speech George W. Bush SHOULD give:

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 damned 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 damn 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 was trading blood for oil I would've already seized Iraq's oil fields and let the rest of the country go to hell. And don't give me this 'Bush Lied People Died' crap either. If I was 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 was faulty. Let me remind you that the rest of the world thought Saddam had the goods, same as me. 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 out spend 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 bastards are all over the globe.

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, dammit, you might just as well Fedex a grenade launcher to a Jihadist. It amounts to the same thing.

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 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 el ected, 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 America fall.

Oh, and by the way, Cheney's quitting too. That means Pelosi is your new President. You asked for it. Watch what she does carefully, because I still have a glimmer of hope that there're 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, f*#k off.

News Flash--
The President of Mexico has just announced that Mexico will not participate in the next Summer Olympics. He said: "Anyone who
can run, jump or swim has already left the country!"

Whoever wrote this speech ought to write one for Bush's staunch political ally here in Southeast Asia. Now, I'm not gonna name names, but she stands 4'11", has a mole on her face, and practically supports everything that Bush does. *Sigh*

But, come to think about it, it's probably too late for her to quit. The only other alternatives to her are an ex-TV journalist turned senator turned VP, an ex-actress turned ex-soon-to-be-First-Lady, a Speaker of the House who looks exactly like one of your pugs, and a Senate President who sort of looks like your other pug. (No offense meant to either you or any of your pugs, okay?) Ciao!

I'm just glad you didn't blast me for liking Bush! I figured I'd catch hell for posting anything that supports our President here in the USA. So I support his allies too!

As for my two doggies. Emily is a Boston Terrier and Abigail is only half Pug. Abigail is a Pug/ English Bulldog mix breed.

Hey, I hope Chrissy doesn't take my "liking bush " the wrong way! You know, her mind has been in the gutter lately!LOL

kim said...

Liking Bush is not your fault, Uncivil. I won't take it against you. But if you like Cheney, too, well........................


Uncivil said...

The "Drive by Media" has brainwashed you Kim! LOL

History will be kind to George Bush. He has good Karma!LOL

I like Cheney too!

I'm not saying they are perfect, just the lesser of the evil when compared too the Democrats!

I want Neal Boortz for president, and Shaun Hannity for VP!LOL!

Toot a loo......I'm off to listen to Rush Limbaugh!

kim said...

Hmm... you listen to way too much radio/online talk shows, and you accuse me of being brainwashed by media... I wonder what your karma's like. Ahahaha!

I want Bono to be UN Secretary General and Oprah to be President of the Universe. They'll most probably be appointed/elected at the same time that Boortz and Hannity take their seats in US Government. Woooo hoooo!

Uncivil said...

Oprah? Oh my Gawd!!!!

I suppose you like Dr. Phil Too?
