Bush WANTS To Torture

Does this man even remember who he works for? He obviously thinks he is some kind of Supreme Ruler. I want to know why Congress has NOT done a thing to reign this maniac in. I’m appalled he is still allowed to occupy the office he has.

The people have already told him they consider waterboarding to be torture. The United States is NOT supposed to be torturning or condoning it. As a matter of fact, I do believe we are the first ones to scream “foul” when other countries use torture, especially on our own troops. So exactly what part of this does this fool NOT understand?

He seems to do things that actually invite others who already dislike us to upgrade to hating us and wanting to get rid of us. Personally, I think bush (I can’t even capitalize his name anymore) is the worlds worst terrorist, because he is so sneaky and hides behind his god …… that’s right HIS god not OUR God/Goddess, and definitely NOT MY God/Goddess. This man’s belief system seems to mirror the beliefs of those fanatical islamists he tells us we need to fear.

Bush Vetoes Bill Outlawing CIA Waterboarding

by Richard Cowan

WASHINGTON — President George W. Bush on Saturday vetoed legislation passed by Congress that would have banned the CIA from using waterboarding and other controversial interrogation techniques.

0308 01 1Lawmakers included the anti-torture measure in a broader bill authorizing U.S. intelligence activities.

“Because the danger remains, we need to ensure our intelligence officials have all the tools they need to stop the terrorists,” Bush said in his weekly radio address. He added that the vetoed legislation “would diminish these vital tools.”

If Congress lets him get away with this they will have lost what little respect and trust I had in them. This president is the biggest threat to all of us, including any hope of peace throughout the world.

It’s long past time our elected representatives actually started representing the will of the people.

There was a time when the United States had some respect and credibility throughout the world. I seriously doubt this is true anymore and it’s not only embarrassing; it breaks my heart to see this country stoop to such low levels.

You cannot condemn torture and then turn around and grant yourself some magical right to torture others. If he gets his way it is just an open invitation for other countries to torture our troops if they are captured. It is just NOT RIGHT.

  1. I am 100% with you on this one! He’s a bastard.

  2. Now, now….lets not give bastards a bad name……..he is much lower and worse than that.

  3. Right again, I just can’t think of anything bad enough to call him then. I’d sure love to see him subjected to waterboarding and see if he still thinks this isn’t torture.

  4. Congress has long since become useless. All talk, no action. They sure talked the shit when it was election time and the Dems wanted control, now they get it and still have done jack shit of what they said. I’m not surprised in the slightest. Quite frankly, our government no longer serves us, and I think that’s abundantly clear in their contempt for the will of the people. Of course, how can I blame them? I hold the people in great contempt myself…look at the people they elect!!
