Psst.., The Emperor Is Wearing No Clothes.

I'm cross posting this is article, which was originally posted on The11thHour.

It's too bad that President Bush couldn't take the Iraq war, which he started, as an opportunity to finish his years of military service. It seems only appropriate that the person who started the war, costing the lives of thousands of U.S. troops, and stealing the treasure from our nation's future generations, would offer to come clean for having deserted the U.S. military during the Vietnam war.

But we all know that's now how it works. His daddy's political connections kept him from ever facing danger during his years of service, kept him from being prosecuted as a deserter, made him his fortune, and eventually led to his presidency.

It's exceedingly ironic that this man, of all men, was embraced by those who claim to hold our national security as their highest responsibility, but when one's love of country gets in the way of greed, and the lust for power, we see what happens.

Here's an interesting link about some of our nation's soldiers, the one's we don't hear much about in the mainstream media. Bush never faced the punishment that these soldiers have for not wanting to fight in a war they didn't believe in.

Instead Bush finds himself applauded by the right wing as a great hero for saving the nation from terrorism. The nation is only one major terrorist attack away from understanding that this emperor is wearing no clothes.

The whole Bush family are an amazing group. Daddy served his country well, according to reports. Sons couldn't have cared less. But the whole group has this misguided "divine right of kings" attitude that they are entitled to the leadership of this country.

I used to admire Barbara Bush, because I thought she was the smart, level-headed one of the group who kept them grounded. But I now think she really gets off on the "wife and mother of presidents" thing. Now there's talk of Jeb running the show next time around as he is apparently the "smart" one and after him, his son, George , III (that is, of course, if the country is ready to be led by (as his grandfather described him and his siblings) "the little brown one(s)."

The saddest part of it all was that I truly liked Barbara.

My perception on Bush Sr. is that he was much better qualified than his sons.

I feel that "W" is the worst president to reside in the White House since President Herbert Hoover.
