WHY is this man still the President?

Was there ever a more ignorant man than George W. Bush to occupy the White House? His lies are so transparent that they lack even the substance of the air he breathes, his distortions are so obvious and frequent that watching him is like being in the hall of mirrors at a carnival, and his hyperbole is so far off the mark sometimes it seems he’s in a different solar system from the rest of humanity.

Yesterday, in a desperate attempt to shore up support for his embattled nominee for attorney general, Mr. Bush compared Senate Democrats blocking Mukasey’s confirmation to those who ignored the rise of Hitler and Lenin.

This is so ridiculous it demands comment. First of all, the term “Islamofascist” has been bandied about so much by his crowd that it has lost any meaning it might once have had. The constant public repetition of the term has 1) emboldened the terrorists, and 2) turned even moderate Muslims in the Middle East against us. America’s reputation in the part of the world it most depends upon for its energy needs is lower now than it has ever been, thanks to the Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld Axis of Incompetence. Yeah, I know Rumsfeld is long gone by now. But it’s still partly his fault we’re in the mess we’re in.

Secondly, anyone with a high school education should be able to tell you that both Hitler and Lenin were authoritarian autocrats who rose to power with the enthusiastic support of the people within the countries they eventually oppressed.  In both cases, the excesses and abuses perpetrated by them were willingly overlooked or ignored by the very people they claimed to be protecting.  In both cases, they enjoyed the support of many otherwise intelligent people who saw an opportunity to gain power as part of the new regime.

Sound familiar?  It should.  It’s happening right here, right now.

Bush claims that we need an attorney general who will allow his government to unlawfully detain people indefinitely and without charge, and torture them at will.  He claims that we need an attorney general who will allow the government to spy on American persons without warrants, snoop their e-mail, conduct “sneak-and-peek” raids on their homes, and force libraries to hand over their lending records, all in violation of the 4th Amendment.  He claims we will be “safer” if his government is allowed to oppress us.

I say that’s just what Hitler said, too.  I say it’s Bushit.  And I say it needs to be stopped.  Now.  Before it’s too late.
