Acting President, Fil(m)ing Cabinet!

I just don't get it.

We have a President who proudly admits to NOT reading newspapers - or maybe anything. When asked, he had been unable to recall if he had made any mistakes. We have a Vice President who insists that EVERY TV in any hotel room he stays at must ALREADY be turned to Fox News Channel. He is the one who SHOT a hunting buddy in the FACE, but did not consider it a big deal, or a mistake, not to tell the public, and letting someone else tell a small local paper about it in the middle of nowhere.

We have Rumsfeld, the Secretary of Defense, on whose watch we were ATTACKED and who has mismanaged TWO Wars we chose to start.

In Afghanistan, American troops are dying to this day, the Taliban are coming back to actually mount attacks on US bases AND on aid workers and politicians... Heroin production is back in full force, most of it headed our way, while Osama Bin Laden rests in his hideout planning the next attack. In Iraq, a war we had no business starting, things are so bad that a recently released journalist kidnapped by insurgents actually praised the insurgents in their fight against America! Our generals say we did not have enough troops there. Our soldiers say they do not have enough body armor there. Our friends say we do not have any sense of direction there.... yet Rumsfeld sees no mistakes having been made there.

So, imagine this. Now Condoleeza Rice, our incompetent Secretary of State, with delusions of becoming President some day, has just admitted to THOUSANDS of errors the Bush administration has made in Iraq. Think about it folks, she admits to THOUSANDS of errors - in just ONE country and war. But, she still says we did the right thing. That is like saying "We made thousands of mistakes, but we are not wrong!"

You know, call me old fashioned, but there used to be a time when people would not only admit to their mistakes, but then take responsibility of them. At the very least they would resign or step down. But, that is not the case with our people in government these days. There is not one thing that cannot be put into the public relations spin machine to make them come out looking like shiny brand new warriors ready to start new wars, in hunting for weapons of more mass destruction in Iran or Syria while North Korea and Israel openly have the weaponry.

Don't get me wrong. I do not expect our politicians to be so overly honorable as the Japanese, where a Minister of Railways will commit SUICIDE in shame for ONE major train accident even if it was not his or her fault. I know, it would be wishful thinking to see any of our cabinet members to even fall off their chair - much less fall on their swords. There are plenty of Republicans and Bush loving people, who also probably do not read newspapers or listen to radio and TV to hear is actually going on around the world, who feel there is no problem with the way our country is being led from one disaster to another. And they consider themselves as having values that so-called liberals do not have.

Yet, even to them, Competence, responsibility and stepping down for your mistakes are so, old fashioned - just like the Constitution is just a goddamned piece of paper to George Bush!

The only thing that amazes me more than the blind support pro-Bush people have for his incompetent team, is the total absence and silence of the Democrats.

If anything, they seem to be even more blindly stumbling around trying to figure out WHAT they stand for anymore. Kerry was for the war before he was against it. Hilary Clinton is moving so rightwards on the political highway that she could hit the median any time now.

Everyone wants to talk about defending America but no one wants to take strong action to tighten our borders, to put our priorities where they serve AMERICA rather than our vote-seeking politicians who ARE selling their their souls just to win elections.

It's almost enough for me to wish for totally fresh new blood in the White House.

Maybe it is time for us to get a whole new type of government. Instead of an guy acting as President, I'd rather have an Acting President. Instead of a truth-mis-filing cabinet, I'd rather have a Fil(m)ing Cabinet.

Maybe we can elect George Clooney President, and Geena Davis as Vice President. Get the Dixie Chicks responsible for Department of the Interior. I would appoint the devilishly angelic Angelina Jolie as Secretary of State and, though I don't really consider him even an actor, Steven Segal can be head of Homeland Security. I would give the CIA to Charlie Sheen to get to the bottom of what really happened and happens. And let's make the beautiful and intelligent Charlize Theron our Ambassador to the United Nations. Finally, I would split the Department of Defense into a Department of Defense and a Department of War and split the work between Arnold Schwarzenegger and Rambo....

Even without a script, I can bet you, these people would run our country better than the Republicans or the Democrats are doing at present. What do you think? Who else should be in this new A-Team!

Dear Chase, how STOOPID is it for you to come back to my blog over and over and comment on almost every posting if my postings are STOOPID and not worthy of being heard?

Also, from what I recall in a separate posting - you said you are in our country's intelligence service or something, persumably hunting for Bin Laden (after that kick ass job you all did hunting for weapons of mass destruction).

Is that what we tax payers are paying you for, to be in Iraq as I think you mentioned somewhere or trotting the globe, and sit on the Internet reading blogs in America! Though, that still means you work harder than George W. Bush did in 5 years in office AND he does not READ.

No bloody wonder Zarqawi, Zawahiri and Bin Laden are safe in their caves because you are more busy REGULARLY reading what YOU call STOOPID posts.

Chase, maybe you'll have better luck hunting things the way Dick Cheney hunts caged birds. But remember, duck first, ask the Dick questions later.

Let, I LOVE the comment, so I SECOND (hand) that (e)MOTION. Idiots can wear uniform too. But Bush did not even do so proudly except to have pictures taken. Chase, if he really is serving our country (when he can make time from reading my STOOPID posts), seems to be focused more on hunting wordsmiths of mass communication in my postings than hunting for Bin Laden.

The irony is that you and I can proudly, as Americans, display our names (and faces) for the world to see how we stand by our opnions, even when they counter our 2nd term first time elected President's "thinking" but Chase has no real or full name, no picture, on his profile... heck, he is posting from an undisclosed location! Hello Dick Cheney?

The U.S should confess as to whatever sins it has committed in the name of WAR ON TERROR. In the guise of wiping off terrorists,the U.S President has proved himself to b THE BIGGEST TERRORIST because in such operations, he has wiped out so many innocent lives.What do u suggest, should Bush confess his crimes to none other than the POPE?
A very intelligent and witty piece, Imran!
