It's Not Bush Bashing

Those of us who vehemently criticize The Decider and his administration are accused by far-right, even moderate, Republicans of hating Bush.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

What we do feel is love for our country.

And, dismay at the shambles this administration has made of everything from our rule of law under Attorney General Gonzales to the demise of our moral standing in the world as the Bush administration systematically destroys our national soul.... the hard-won concept of justice and human rights.

Those of us who love our country cannot stand by mute as The Decider dismantles our nation's fundamental values and basic character. While he conducts his crusades like the basest despot, turning the world's after-9/11 sympathetic face from us, fueling an explosion of anti-American sentiment and terrorists.

Oh yes, The Decider has been fighting hard, and even today is still fighting hard.... for the "rights" of illegal aliens who invaded our country and now expect, nay demand, citizenship and the social-net benefits that brings.

Most of these millions of illegal aliens are from Mexico. The Mexico that The Decider is going to build a NAFTA super- highway through, right into the heart of our nation.

How about a reality check on Mexico, our unchecked border and the already planned unchecked expressway into our country's heart. The Dallas News reported yesterday that a drug cartel gang, more an army, called the "Zetas" is "spreading its brand of brutal violence into 31 Mexican states as it battles for control of new regions and key border entry points, U.S. and Mexican authorities say."

These are highly trained military deserters who murder for control... at least six law enforcement officials in Ciudad Juarez across from El Paso in the last two weeks alone..... and have targeted other areas in Mexico such as Acapulco, Monterrey and Veracruz... even Dallas, Texas.

This now 2,000-member paramilitary organization, according to Mexico's Attorney General Mora, are in control of several regions of Mexico. The Zetas have been "taking control of several of our police forces, corrupting them.... They're taking our police away," said Mora.

And, if The Decider has his way, all of this violence and corruption will have a superhighway into our heartland.

It's inexcusable for the person sworn to protect and uphold the Constitution of the United States and to protect its citizens, President Bush, to throw his full efforts into bringing this lawlessness, and illegal alien lawbreakers, into our midst as though they were vacationers from Disneyworld.

That's why it's so sad that the vote of no-confidence in his legal enabler, Attorney General Gonzales, was stifled by most GOP lawmakers yesterday in a Cloture Motion with the help of their friends such as pseudo-Independent Senator Joe Lieberman (CT) and "Not Voting" presidential candidates Joe Biden (D-DE), Chris Dodd (D-CT), Barack Obama (D-IL), Sam Brownbeck (R-KS), John McCain (R-AZ).

To their credit, however, seven Republicans did throw their support toward the vote, they are Norm Coleman (MN), Susan Collins (ME), Chuck Hagel (NE), Gordon Smith (OR), Olympia Snowe (ME), Arlen Specter (PA), John Sununu (NH).

So, until The Decider shows us through his actions that he loves our country.... wants to preserve our country, and puts the needs of his countrymen first.... don't expect any "Hero of Albania" gushing from those of us who do love our United States of America.
