Time for Some Serious Political Commentary (Seriously)

Alright, I have a few serious comments to get off my chest here, so bear with me.

Kerry Sharpens Attack on Bush and Iraq War
Excuses, excuses, excuses. To be perfectly honest, these politicians are making me sick. First off, it's pretty clear that George Bush is perfect. He simply doesn't make any mistakes (please cue the laugh track). Seriously, I'm really tired of our President passing blame like a peace pipe. I mean, when is Bush going to "take a hit?" He seems to blow everything off like it's all just a bunch of tabloid (read: CBS) material.

Here's today's example that really got me going:
Bush also played down the significance of a CIA report forecasting more difficulty in Iraq. "The CIA laid out several scenarios and said life could be lousy, life could be okay, life could be better, and they were just guessing as to what the conditions might be like," he said.

They were guessing. Oh, OK. So that's a good thing that the CIA knows nothing about issues of security? So we all should just accept the universal truth that Bush is right and everyone is always wrong? Obviously that answer is yes....if you're a member of the Bush White House. However, regardless of whether or not the report is "just another opinion," it sure seems like a Central (Lack of) Intelligence Agency report should be more than "guesswork."

Now this got me to thinking: which branch of government is the CIA in? Oh yes, the executive branch. And who's in charge of the executive branch? That's right - Lynne Cheney...just kidding. The real answer is George W. Bush, so if the CIA is coming out with flawed reports, that's Bush's job to make sure they fix it. According to the CIA website, whitehouse.gov (ha ha ha), the CIA is accountable to the President and responsible for: Providing accurate, comprehensive, and timely foreign intelligence on national security topics. The moral of the story is simple - national security is not a Martin Lawrence comedy.....well, actually, it is, but the point is, the CIA should not be guesswork, gaffs, and giggles.

Even if I believed President Bush in saying that the CIA was off the wall on this one (which quite honestly, I don't), it's his job to make sure they do get it right. Bush is wrong in constantly trying to pin everything on someone else. In other words, as Dr. Seuss would say: Bush should quit trying to duck the buck; he is remiss to try and dismiss all of this.

Tiêu Viêm lại nhìn đan phương một lần nữa, xác định chính mình không nhớ lầm, linh hồn lực lượng liền thối lui ra khỏi quyển trục màu trắng

Trong Minh U cốc, đôi mắt Tiêu Viêm đang nhắm ngồi xếp bằng cơ hồ năm canh giờ bỗng mở ra.

Trông thấy Tiêu Viêm tỉnh lại, Lâm lão vội vàng hỏi: "Viêm Kiêu tiểu hữu, như thế nào đây?"

"Ha ha, đan phương xem qua rồi, Đế Phong Thánh đan là Tam phẩm Đế đan. Dược liệu cần hơn vạn loại, với thực lực hiện tại của ta, dù cho có Lâm lão toàn lực trợ giúp chỉ sợ xác xuất thành công cũng sẽ không cao ah!"

"Ách, ý của Viêm Kiêu tiểu hữu là?"

"Không biết khi nào Lâm lão cần Đế Phong Thánh đan, chậm nhất là khi nào?"

"Trong vòng năm năm!" Lâm Vân thoáng chần chờ một lát, mới chậm rãi nói ra.
