Congressman Kucinich was absolutely correct on both counts: the UFO thing and the president's mental stability thing. Here's why. The UFO which Kucinich claims to have seen was, in fact, President Bush successfully landing his crazy jet on the flight deck of the USS Batshit. Your president at the Heritage Foundation Thursday:
"History teaches that underestimating the words of evil, ambitious men is a terrible mistake. [...]
In the 1920s, the world ignored the words of Hitler, as he explained his intention to build an Aryan super-state in Germany, take revenge on Europe, and eradicate the Jews -- and the world paid a terrible price. His Nazi regime killed millions in the gas chambers, and set the world aflame in war, before it was finally defeated at a terrible cost in lives and treasure. [...]
Bin Laden and his terrorist allies have made their intentions as clear as Lenin and Hitler before them. And the question is: Will we listen?"
These were just a few choice remarks pulled from a mostly horrible speech by the president in which he scolded the Democrats for being terrorist appeasers, simply because they're not giving him everything he wants. I don't even know where to begin to evaluate the insanity, but I had to review the video in order to make sure he didn't end the speech by mounting Bancini's shoulders and challenging Charlie Cheswick to a pick-up game of black jack in the tub room.
Let's start with bin Laden and work up to the Nazi part.
President Bush has clearly forgotten that it wasn't the Democrats who failed to capture Osama bin Laden. The sole responsibility for the failure to capture bin Laden, in fact, rests directly on the slumped little-man shoulders of George W. Bush, the 43rd President of the United States, due to his well-documented incompetence, hubris and myopia. He also went so far as to inexplicably shut down the CIA's bin Laden unit. This has nothing to do with the Democrats. It was The Decider who decided to allow bin Laden to escape and to go on to bigger and better things, like an Evildoer Disney in northern Pakistan.
This demands restating.
The only reason bin Laden is any sort of threat here and now -- a full six years after September 11-- is strictly and in no uncertain terms the fault of George W. Bush.
The Democrats had nothing to do with this historically massive blunder. It wasn't the Democrats who looked you and me in the eye and declared bin Laden "wanted dead or alive," only to, a few months later, publicly confess to not spending much time on him.
Yet the president is shamelessly projecting his unforgivable failures onto Congress during this, his third public hissy in less than a week.
Not all of us, as George Carlin sublimely described to Keith Olbermann, have been bought off with toys and gadgets. We haven't forgotten that Congress, including the Democrats, made "the terrible mistake" of giving the president everything he asked for, over and above the bounds of reason and constitutionality. Everything. Through the first half of this decade, they allowed him to get away with the no-bid contracts, the Patriot Act, the illegal preemptive invasion of Iraq, the outsourcing of the military, the wiretapping and all of the flagrantly unconstitutional shit which has defined his presidency.
And he still failed to get the bad guy.
With a record of acquiescence as precedent, the Democrats appear to be turning a corner and are attempting to ignore his pedomorphic attempts at intimidation. Slowly but surely. So how does the president react? He spazzes out and blames the Democrats for the on-going bin Laden threat.
Additionally, in finally resisting the president, the Democrats are also accused of being appeasers -- similar to men who conducted business with Nazi Germany. Men including, say, I don't know, Prescott Bush for example.
This isn't a new tactic for this regime. I think Rumsfeld was the first to offer up this Nazi appeaser argument. Crazy ass Rumsfeld! The president should know better than to go around repeating all the backwards shit he overhears Rumsfeld saying.
Because now our Chief Executive has shrunken so small and beneath contempt as to blame the Democratic Party for potentially allowing an all new Holocaust -- in the same way the appeasers allowed Hitler to run amok and murder 6 million Jews. Now the (straw man Democratic) appeasers want to let the evildoers run free, and... what then, hmm? Hitler is to Holocaust, as bin Laden is to... what? Hint: another Holocaust-like genocide and the Democrats will surely be to blame.
In the president's withered, oxygen-deprived skull, anyone who disagrees with this analogy is, as he said today, "being disingenuous or naive." Not the neocons who repeat such nonsense. The Democrats.
That's right. The Democrats.
By not giving the president everything he wants, these unhinged so-accused appeasers, in addition to allowing bin Laden to remain a threat, could now be shoving the world down a familiar slippery slope toward horrors not unlike "gas chambers" and racial "eradication," and only George W. Bush's illegal wiretaps and torturing and failed wars can stop this from happening. You know, because his ideas have always been so awesome. Naturally, then, the Democrats had better let him have Mukasey and waterboarding. They'd better let him bomb Iran. They'd better let him continue to fund mercenary shadow armies. Because if they don't... Boom! New Holocaust!
This could very well be the most outrageous thing the president has ever said, and that includes "major combat operations have ended" and his recent World War III remark. Bloggers and talk radio hosts can get away with uttering such categorically demented horseshit, but this is the President of the United States for God's sake. This speech was miles below the high ground dignity we expect from the holder of our most cherished public office.
As such, and in this order, there ought to be a motion to censure the president brought to the floor of both chambers, and, following the censure vote, the president should publicly apologize to Congress and the American people for these statements. Seriously. He should then apologize to the survivors of the Holocaust for reducing their horrifying struggle to the level of a hackish political stunt.
Contact your senators and congressman right now and get this thing moving. Congress seems to be demanding apologies from everyone who says something offensive these days, so, by God, the president should apologize, too.
Meanwhile, per the 25th Amendment, the president needs to resign from office due to being mentally incapacitated. I know that won't happen, but it's worth suggesting anyway.
