“Shameless” would be another apt adjective. The neo-con “experiment” has failed and it’s time to bring the soldiers home and admit the whole thing was nothing but “sound and fury”. Instead more American soldiers will be slaughtered so that Bush can try and save face.[/quote]
Given the outright manipulations of information and spread of misinformation, shameless, especially with respect to standing behind and lying about administration activities and failed initiatives, is a good one.
I’d also point to Iraq as support for my own choice of adjective. I guess, since Iraq will be such a large part of his legacy, all adjectives will have to be applicable to it.
Anyway, the US is in Iraq now because Colin Powell was right. Specifically, the US entered Iraq because it wanted to. Now, the US is in Iraq because it pretty much has to be.
All arguing about whether or not the US should have gone into Iraq aside, I don’t think that many right wing cheerleaders can sidestep the fact that they are now stuck in something they would rather not be in.
Leading your country into such a situation, especially with prior warning readily available, seems like a good example of reckless behavior to me. Bush is the poster child for why a president can’t just do whatever he wants with a consequences be damned attitude.
