Post Election Predictions

Updated on October 12, 2008

What is The U.S. To Do?

To this country's shame, upon his retirement from office, our president may have to face an international commission on some of the possible crimes committed by his administration. I heard on the radio yesterday that this is a very distinct possibility.

A tragic figure indeed, Mr. bush could not live up to the war hero legacy of his father and the fact his father was an excellent president whose bad luck was an economy slowed but ready to pick up again.

The world financial crisis is just the latest outrage that might be the showdown that brings Bush before an international court of law. He did, after all use false intelligence to start a war and wipe his feet on the constitution that many have died for in protection of our freedom and others in the world.

Some of the major mistakes, such as his latest, giving India free reign on nuclear development while that region is a powder keg, is unbelievable. Can we afford to lose Pakistan as an ally right now? Do we want to provoke Iran? What's with the North Korean mock destruction of their reactor?

The economy, foreign policy, environment, energy,and healthcare, terror and the shrinking dollar are the awful unpaid legacy of an administration that even used the judiciary to further its illegal causes. What will we teach our children about this great land of ours and why we laid waste to it?

Whoever gets elected will have their hands full and even then, it's going to take some time for the U.S. to be seen as the great humanitarian power and oasis of freedom it once was. We do lead the world in a couple of categories however,. We build more prisons and have the highest incarceration rate of any country in the world. We also excel at war and exporting weapons of war.

Washington warned about foreign dalliance; General McArther advised we not

fight wars in the very regions we have forged into anyway. We saw the war in Afghan drain the Russian federation, forcing its breakup but we were going to show the world what we could do.

Iraq has a 60 billion dollar surplus, while the U.S. debt to China alone approaches one trillion dollars. We are going to defeat Iran and the terrorists in Afghan? This is the Bush plan. What do you think?

      It is shameful, indeed, solarcaptain, but George W. Bush is, and has been president for nearly eight years, the leader of the Republican. Where was the Republican House of Representatives, the Republican Senate, the president's cabinet and other high Republican officials while all this took place? They, including Sen. John McCain, have a great deal of responsibility for what has taken place under Bush -- and Vice President Dick Cheney. Even now these officials try to distance themselves from President Bush. Where's the personal responsibility the Republicans always demand from America's "average Joe?"
