War is not for a child game especially with no-brain kid.

In retrospect, its no wonder current president Bush hated going to former president Fords funeral and wanting it to be small and short. Ford was the polar opposite of Bush, at least within the Republican Party. Ford actually listened to the military on military matters. He also listened to outsiders, experts and opposing party members. He did not demonize opponents. He treated people and the press with respect. He actually seemed to like people and enjoy their company. He was polite and patient. He was reasonably intelligent and had read history and law. He did not lie about bad news or cover up his mistakes. He did not start wars for selfish or theoretical purposes. He felt war profiteers should be punished. He truly believed that part in his oath of office about defending the Constitution. He did not attempt to frighten the public for political advantage or sponsor political ads he knew were false. Frankly, Ford as a dead man would make a better president than Bush alive.

I don’t think Bushie Boy convinced anyone that going to war is a good thing. This sounds like Vietnam all over again.

Barney would bite Bush in the Butt; except he’s afraid of contracting rabies.

Barney says he doesn’t support the “surge”—Bow wow-so, maybe Barney will convince Laura.
