Apply at the big, white house. Experience preferred, but not needed.
(It’s moments like this that I miss cable television, news that is.)
Full text of speech here.
DAMMIT THIS IS WHERE I HAD ABOUT THREE PARAGRAPHS OT TEXT THAT SUDDENLY DISAPPEARED. ARUGH. WHY DO I EVEN TRY
Call me idealistic, call me a miracle hoping monger, call me on my vote for this President. Blah, blah. blah this is where I had written something that made sense and included quotes from the speech and outlined my disapointment with the President and how I want to believe BUT even more I want HIM to MAKE us believe and that isn’t going to happen, blah blah blah change the course. Increase the troops, but hopefully not for this reason…end the violence. Blah, blah, blah. You know what? I am pissed off that by adding a link above to my post I lost the well crafted (at least in my head) thoughts that streamed out of my brain shortly after watching the deer in headlight look President of ours give his speech and I am not even close to doing a good job of explaining how I feel right now because, well, those thoughts are lost. LOST! Hazards of blogging and adding to a post I suppose. Grrr.
Now is not the time to act… 6, 9, 12, 18, 24 months ago was the time. “Where mistakes have been made, the responsibility rests with me.”
To make the time now, we need a FORCEFUL, CREDIBLE, POWERFUL LEADER to LEAD us through the next few months. And we just don’t have that with President Bush and it makes my heart sad. Mention of Syria and Iran and “material support” also concerns me…what are we doing?
A step forward indeed, let us pray that it doesn’t lead us two steps back. For the sake of our troops.
Aside: For those of you counting…it was five minutes into the speech before 9/11 was invoked and 12 minutes for “Al Qaeda”
Double secret underground aside: What’s with the Joe love fest?
