Beyond Bumbling


I understand a teacher is in trouble for referring to Bush as a Hitler. I would beg to differ with that position. Hitler in his insane way was quite brilliant in that he had the world at war for five-plus years and held off the “enemy.” Bush is too dimwitted to achieve that. He has us bogged down in the sands of Iraq and Osama is laughing. Bush is better compared to B. Mussolini, with due apologies to any folks of Italian heritage. Who else has the idea we should relegate our port security to the people who blew up the World Trade Center and now give nuclear technology to India, which has not signed the nonproliferation treaty and brags about its A-bombs? No wonder Iran and North Korea jerk us around by the nose. I don’t have space to list all the rest of his fumbling and bumbling, but you might think about the Great Drug Benefit of 2006 and the No Child Left Behind program (that’s true of course—our kids are going nowhere). Keep it up and we too can follow the Soviets into oblivion. —Gary Orthuber
