I was kick started yesterday when I was reading I, Brummie's post from Sunday and it did raise some vitriol in me. Not against Graham, but against George W. Bush, the subject of the post.
I just can't believe the stupidity and incompetance of Bush. I've had this feeling towards him for many years now, basically since his election when many doubts about him were raised, and then after 9/11, the war on Iraq, Kyoto, and now Hurricane Katrina, the feelings in me are even stronger.
I would suggest you read Graham's post as I agree fully with what he has to say but I'll end on his last point...
14.In Conclusion, Bush's management of this situation has been appalling - and by any reasonable standards, grossly incompotent.I would say, that by any reasonable defintion, it borders on gross misconduct. Can we look at the presidents contract? Can he be fired for gross misconduct? If someone can lose their job for say, looking at porn on the work internet (and it has happened, but not to me)....doesn't the incompotence that leads to the loss of thousands and thousands of human lives lost due to gross incompetence count as gross misconduct? Why isn't that a sackable offence? less than a decade ago we saw the example of Bill Clinton almost losing his job because he had sex with a woman who wasn't his wife - and right now, thousands die because of the President Bush's gross incompotence and gross misconduct, and I don't see Kenneth Starr anywhere, writing a report at the cost of millions of dollars to get Bush impeached.
It is so true. I'm sure he must have a contract somewhere and the first point should be that the President cannot be a dick. but sadly..
