IS GEORGE W. BUSH CLINICALLY INSANE?
By Bill Gallagher
DETROIT — His shrill voice pains sensitive ears. In the red states of the South and West, he ramps up his Texas twang as he brags on his war and hurls insults and lies about those who don’t share his views. President George W. Bush says he’s “pleased with the progress in Iraq,” Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld is doing a “fantastic job,” and those who support Democrats “want the terrorists to win.”
Bush goes well beyond gutter rhetoric and the politics of desperation. He is a delusional madman and a disgrace to our national heritage. When young people hear the president of the United States talking as he does, it’s no wonder their perception of politics and public life is so low.
The man who ran for the presidency claiming “I’m a uniter, not a divider” is one of the most divisive figures in American history and he will only get worse as his fiasco in Iraq continues to spiral into the abyss and the nation unravels.
Bush says, with mindless repetition, that we will “win the war,” when the fact is, we are slogging it out in a conflict that screams for a political solution he is unwilling to confront as any reasonable leader would.
“Bring ’em on” is the emblem of Bush’s sick mentality, as Iraqis and American troops spill their blood for his cowboy machismo.
