Something to think about! - This Would Shake Things Up....
Bush's Resignation Speech
We all have our disagreements with President Bush. Immigration,
U.S. Attorney firings, Iraq , Darfur , etc. are all hot topics these
"speech" was written yesterday by an ordinary person. 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.

The speech George
W. Bush SHOULD give:
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
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
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.
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 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 undamentally, 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. Many, if not most of
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.
should be grateful that they haven't gotten any more of us here in the United
State s 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
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
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
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 America
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.
that's it. God bless what's left of America . Some of you know what I
