The Emperor’s New Clothes….

October 6, 2006

I really wish more people would pay attention to the truth MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann points out on a regular basis.  Again and again, it’s a case of the emperor’s new clothes.  What Olbermann tells us is obvious, but people refuse to see it, or fear to say anything for the reasons below — afraid to be accused of  being anti-American, of not being patriotic, of supporting terrorism, of whatever wild, flailing-in-the-wind accustation happens to be on ever-changing agenda of President Bush.  (Does anyone know how nauseated it makes me to say “President” Bush?). 

But the premise of a president who comes across as a compulsive liar is nothing less than terrifying.

A president who since 9/11 will not listen, is not listening — and thanks to Bob Woodward’s most recent account — evidently has never listened.

A president who since 9/11 so hates or fears other Americans that he accuses them of advocating deliberate inaction in the face of the enemy.

A president who since 9/11 has savaged the very freedoms he claims to be protecting from attack — attack by terrorists, or by Democrats, or by both — it is now impossible to find a consistent thread of logic as to who Mr. Bush believes the enemy is.

But if we know one thing for certain about Mr. Bush, it is this: This president — in his bullying of the Senate last month and in his slandering of the Democrats this month — has shown us that he believes whoever the enemies are, they are hiding themselves inside a dangerous cloak called the Constitution of the United States of America.
