How Old Is Old?

“The defects of the mind, like those of the face, grow worse with age.—Francois de La Rochefoucauld

When I was a kid, I thought Truman was old. I thought Eisenhower was old. Hell, they both died while I was a kid. Now that's old. Now a man who hopes to beat the Guiness world record for oldest man to become president of the United States is trying to give us another term for the politics, policies and pomposity of the Bush administration. Four more years of staying the course...a policy which never did change when Bush announced his “New Way Forward,” a doublespeak for the surge and staying the course. Again old men continue to send young men into harms way instead of attempting to communicate with our perceived enemies. Already this administration has killed more soldiers than Osama Bin Laden killed people at the WTC. We've more than likely also killed more Iraqi civilians that Saddam ever could have hoped to. And what do we get out of all this? More pissed off Arabs.

The economy is in the toilet, we’re giving contracts to foreign companies like EADS to build our military aircraft in France at the expense of jobs in the U.S. while on the verge of a recession. Meanwhile, George Bush tap dances on the north portico of the White House. Kinda reminds me of Hitler dancing his silly little jig when France was forced to surrender in that little railroad car. Except that was Allied propaganda created by looping the film segment to make Hitler look like a fool. Hitler hadn’t been stood up by his hopeful successor, and George Bush needs little help in making himself look like a fool
