Impeach The Bastard and Let's Move On

"I have been very candid about my past."

"It's time to restore honor and dignity to the White House." So declared george bush during the 2000 presidential campaign. In one of his first ads, and ever so earnest sounding, bush told television viewers in Iowa he would "return honor and integrity" to the Oval Office. His promise to escort these values back to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue---after you-know-who had done you-know-what in the Oval Office and then lied about it ---was often the emotional crescendo of Bush's stump speech. With solemnity, bush told the crowds that, should he be fortunate to steal, I mean win, the election, on the day of his inauguration he would not only lift his hand and swear to uphold the Constitution, he would swear to uphold the "honor and the integrity" of the presidency.

george bush is a liar. He has lied large and small. He has lied directly and by omission. He has mugged the truth --not merely in honest error, but deliberately, consistently, and repeatedly to advance his career and his cronies agenda. His lies greased his path towards the White House and they have been one of the essential tools of his presidency. To call him prevaricator is not an exercise of opinion, not an inflammatory talk-radio device.

george bush has provided the entire world with good reason to doubt the word of America. One day when bush was campaigning for president, he accused a Democrat foe of dishonesty and declared, "First and foremost is to tell the truth. There's a lot of young people who get disillusioned when they see political figures say one thing and do another." "So step one is to .....tell the truth." And on his first full day on the job, while swearing in his White House staff, Bush reminded his cadre, "On the mantelpiece in this great house is inscribed the prayer of John Adams's , that only the wise and honest may rule under this roof" But Adams's prayer has once more gone unanswered. bush's promise was a lie. The future of the United States remains in the hands of a dishonest man. Let's take it back. Impeach him now.
