Two Georges - Washington and W' - No Comparison




Today, the President, George W. Bush, dared to compare himself to our first president, George Washington. W' thinks that he and the first George are similar men, of similar character, and that the challenges of the Iraq War are similar to those that our Founding Father, President Washington, faced as he and others established this nation.



There is no comparison, George 43, no comparison at all! George Washington was elected to serve as our country's first president by the entire voting population of our newly born nation. The first American election was neither manipulated nor stolen and the Supreme Court did not appoint General Washington to the presidency.


George Washington was noted for his honesty, known to be an introspective person, and was always concerned about others who were not as fortunate as himself. General Washington did not lie this country into a war, and did not abuse, or neglect, the soldiers who volunteered to serve under his leadership.

Unlike George W. Bush, our first George, was not an arrogant man. He was humble. When the people asked George Washington to be their king after the Revolution was over, he refused. He did not want to become a despot or a constitutional monarch. What would the aristocratic Dubya do if a similar request were to be made of him?

George Washington helped to form our constitution and guarantee our freedoms whereas, George W. Bush has done his best, since taking up residence in the Oval Office, to constrain the freedom of America's citizenry by delibertly dismantling the Constitution of the United States.

Washington, as the first leader of the American democracy, did not use citizen soldiers to impose democracy by invasion and force in other contries - that was President Woodrow Wilson.

Today, the worst president in the history of this country, George W', stood at Mount Vernon and delivered what sounded like a fourth grade book report composed by a child who had long ago been left behind. One bad statement in particular stood out. "In the end, General Washington understood that the Revolutionary War was a test of wills, and his will was unbreakable."

Somebody please tell Dubya that George Washington was not a stubborn, childish, willful man like himself. "Tests of will" and "unbreakable will" are symptoms more frequently exhibited by obstinate kings and gods who are fashioned after overbearing, demanding men. President Washington was a man who did not seek to impose "his will" upon others.


W' you are no Washington!

No further proof is necessary that George W. Bush is seriously delusional...

Quick! - Call the men in white who drive the wacky wagon. The current George needs to be straight jacketed and transported directly to Walter Reed Hospital's outpatient mental health facilities. Only there, amidst mouse droppings and mold, will he recieve the care that he so desperately needs. Only there will he learn that he doesn't exist (oops, records lost, again!) and that he, like the rest of our service members, is expendable.

More later about the disgusting, indifferent neglect by the Department of Defense at Walter Reed's outpatient facilities...

KWW - terrific writing; biting, edgy, to the point. I loved your Walter Reed solution for "W." Dana Priest, who broke the story at the WaPo,suggested that citizens could help by directly contacting their Congress persons and demanding corrective action at once. Mine are Senators Hutchison and Cornyn. Yours female senators are so much better, however.

I see we reached the same conclusion about the Commander in Chimp. Not that this conclusion was any kind of a puzzle or anything...

Great post KWW. It makes me sick to think about this. Code Pink has had a vigil outside of Walter Reed for a few years now about veterans benefits. They get all kinds of flack from 'true merkins'. Perhaps if they were listened to instead of mocked this might have been avoided...

I couldn't believe Bush made that absurd speech comparing himself to George Washington. He's broken his own record for being delusional and out to lunch.

I remember when Reagan compared the rightwing terrorists in Nicaragua (whom we were financing) to America's Founding Fathers. LOL.

Dana Priest's Washington Post series exposing the neglect of mentally and physically wounded soldiers at Walter Reed deserves a Pulitzer Prize. Finally, a journalist that we all can admire.

The military has started to do some repairs which is good but they must be watched to make sure their actions are not temporary and cosmetic. Neglect of veterans has been going on for over 40 years. The system needs to be stripped down and rebuilt from the inside out under the scrutiny of citizen watchdogs and whistleblowers.

Yep, Georgie really stepped in it this time. The stench is overwhelming.

It makes me sick, too. Veterans have been having to fight for every little bit of care for years.

Under this administration the money needed for armored vehicles, body armor, and the extended care of disabled veterans has been diverted to pay for the developement of space weapons. Dreams of Star Wars-styled missle shields and the weaponization of space have clouded the thinking of many with Rumsfeld and Cheney leading the pack.

I ordered "Soldiers Speak Out" and we spent the night before last watching it. Wow! May arrange to do a movie night using this film. They did a good job packaging so much on one DVD. Thanks for the suggestion.

George has never been quite right. He truly believes that history will hold him up as some kind of savior or hero for all the harm that he has done. All kidding aside - the president is a very sick man.

I didn't catch the Reagan thing but ya know, he wasn't all there either!

Be careful about criticizing any president. Whether you agree with his politics or not, respect his character or not, a leader is put there by God. Sure Dubya hasn't been ideal in all ways, but George 1 had his faults, too, They just didn't make the evening news. Remember the adage about walking in someones else's moccassins.

It is the duty of the American citizenry to criticize the president if he is a danger to the country. George W. Bush is a very sick man.

Your god has nothing to do with it. If you choose to blindly follow a leader you would have made an excellant and obedient Nazi.
