So, President Bush, the leader of the United States of America, the most powerful country in the world, was not aware of what was going on in his own administration.
DÃ©jÃ vu all over again.
What do I mean? Well, let's see, Bush did not know the levees were breached, or even could be. Nor did he know that such a tragedy awaited New Orleans if a Category 4 hurricane, like one named Katrina, happened to slam ashore.
Bush did not know that someone in the White House leaked the name of a CIA agent. And of course, he did not know lobbyist Jack Abramoff. Bush did not know Iraq did not have the following: weapons of mass destruction; yellow cake uranium; an Osama bin Laden-Saddam Hussein connection; and that an insurgency would rise after he invaded Iraq.
OK, allow me to play the devil's advocate: Let's say Bush really did not know anything previously mentioned in this letter. Let's say he is doing the best he can, and he really does mean well. Repeat the previous paragraph for emphasis. Now for whatever the reasons, this administration, of which he is the CEO (if I may), has been bungling domestic and international affairs for six years and cost tens of thousands of lives, at home and abroad, in the process.
In any other job, if such rampant incompetence were displayed, the boss and like-minded cronies would be shown the door. Other Western democracies have votes of no confidence if their leader is shown to be lacking in all things related to running a country. In fact, America has a safety valve, too, to put a halt to questionable leadership in the Office of The President of the United States. It's called impeachment.
If Congress can impeach a president for lying about an extramarital affair, then it surely has ample reason(s) to call into question the antics and policies of not only this president, but his entire administration, whose decisions have proven to be counter-productive and injurious to our country. Therefore, Congress should immediately begin unprecedented impeachment proceedings on the whole lot.
The buck has to stop. America can no longer afford the abject failure of this presidency.
