Always Remember and Don't Ever Forget...He Is THE DECIDER

"I am the decider, I decide what is best"

President Bush in one of his Earth Day speeches 4-22-06 (that all somehow turned to Iraq, or to defending his posse)

Thank you Mr President, that makes it all clear for me. Because I am sure you are unfamiliar with what you said, I will make it clear to you---I will speak slowly.

C U L P A B I L I T Y

YOU make the decisions.

Please remember your powerful proclamation during your impeachment hearings.

He'd better get ready for it, because the Dems are coming, and there are plenty of soundbytes out there to byte the President on the arsse when the time comes. Too bad, too... I'm not convinced that would be the best thing for America - after all, look who's #2! Scary stuff... every bit of it...

You got a great point there G-T-L. Any way you slice it, we are in for a scary 558 days 10 hours and 17 minutes.

Can't you just see a 4 year old, getting mad on the playground, saying, "No! You can't decide! I'm the decider! If you don't let me decide, I'm not going to play with you!"

That's all I can think about since I heard that quote.

Gun-Toting Liberal said...

I heard THAT, c'est!

Marcia; funny, but yes - that is exactly the picture that comes to mind...

You know, you're so different over here - all serious and stuff. You sure it's not somebody else leaving comments at my place?

Because it's all so serious and political here it seems somehow wrong to leave my usual style of comments like, well, like this:

When I said I was looking for a little bush, that's not what I meant.

So, I'm not going to say that.

C'est Moi said...

HA...LOL, well thank you dear for exercising such restraint here. I shudder to think about you making such a provocative comment over here where the atmosphere is so serious and all. And yes...it is Moi playing in your yard, I find your good-ness irresistible.

Ben said...

Careful, you might catch straightness. It's contageous you know.

C'est Moi said...

I KNEW IT! Contageous and I hear you people try to recruit. What the hell, I will take my chances.

Ben said...

We have to recruit, on account of being such a small minority. In fact I'm off to a recruiting drive tonight at the local pub. It's a tough job, but somebody's got to do it. Wish me luck.

You must not be paying close attention to George W, Megan. I distinctly remember him saying a few months ago that he's never made a mistake nor a decision he regrets. It does kinda make one wonder how we ended up in this mess tho...

thepoetryman said...

He feels that he will be the one that decides when and if he gets impeached... Has the ring of a famous dictator in history, eh?

steve said...

Let's be reasonable. I hope you do not seriously believe impeachemt is a good idea. After 14 years out of power, let's hope the Democratic Party can accomplisb something productive. Impeachment is divisive and not what this country needs, now. We need a "uniter".... I know I have heard that one before, too

C'est Moi said...

But I suppose it was alright to make this country a laughingstock in the relentless pursuit of President Clinton's impeachment? Yeah, I'm sure it was.

Yes Steve, I most certainly can think it is a good idea. What I believe in is a level of accountability. The impeachment would be divisive?? This President is divisive. The process of holding him accountable for his crimes would be a blip on the radar screen compared to what he has put this country through.

steve said...

Respectfully, I have to disgaree with you. It was worng to impeach Clinton. The United States congress and the office od the presidency became the laughiing stock of the world. It was not our best moment. I will remind you the reson for the impeachemnt was that he lied under oath. Of course, it was polictically motivated and the senate had the commen sense to stop it but not until we thoroughly embarassed ourselves.

Therefore, it is equally wrong to impeach President Bush. I dod not vote for him but he is my president and your president, also. If you do not respect the man then respect the office, at least. In the Bill Clinton's greatest disservice was to his legacy and opening the door for the Replublicans to take the office. Spare me, he stole the office argument. That's the equivalent of a football team arguing they lost because of a bad call. When you are heavily favored, you leave no doubt and the Democratics did not do that.

I agree with you one could contrive an argument to impeac the president. That will not be necessary..all will be revealed in the Scooter Libby trial and let that unfold. This congress needs to get back to work on the immigration issue, the war, health care..you name a few more. That is far more important than "gotcha". It is exactly your arguments that will return the congress to Republicans. Americans do not want another impeachment.....

steve said...

Reespectfully, I must disagree with you. You are correct America was the lughunf stock of the world during the impeachment of President Clinton. I do not wish to see a repeat. Also, keep in mind he was impeache dfor lting under oath....of course it was politically motivated. The senate had the common sense to stop it. However, the greatest falure of President Clinton was that he opened the door for President Bush to defeat Senator Gore. The contest should not have even been close. Senator Gore should have won handily given the performance of the office of the President. the record was very good. Please spare me the argument Presidnet Bush stole the election. That is the equivalent of a heavily favored football team blaming a bad call as the reaosn they lost. There should have been no doubt.

You argument for impeachment is the issue that will leave th republicans in control of the congress, again. Americans want to see a government that will work and not one whose goal is retribution. That is unproductive.

Finally, I did not vote for President Bush but I do respect the Office of the Presidency. So, instead of impeachment, let's capture the congress that is payback in our great democracy.

C'est Moi said...

Steve, we are really not far apart here. Clinton was impeached for lying. Because that is an impeachable offense, I could not and do not complain of injustice here. It is unfortunate because we could only (and did) appear ridiculous. I think we agree there.

I think it will take more time to have a real feel for what the American people want. Many are coming out of a fog and only beginning to realize the gravity of what has been going on. Do I want the "gotcha"? In all honestly Steve, maybe I do. But in thinking about it, I can't seem to get past this reality---it would be wrong to relieve Bush of accountability. It is difficult for me to imagine that this "wrong", coupled the "wrongs" he has committed will add up to a "right" for the American people.

steve said...

I sense your anger and frustration, but only one thing frightens me more than President....that would be President Cheney.....that is what gitcha will get you..think about it.
