End the Ineptitude

According to a new poll by the Associated Press, only 38% of Americans approve of the Bush Administration's handling of the war in Iraq.

Well, when you put greedy contractors ahead of the needs of the troops, when you put swagger and bluster ahead of an intelligent planning process, when you manage to alienate the entire world community-hell, we even ticked off Canada-then things aren't going to go well.

The American public is sharper than the Bush gang realizes. The mishandling of the situation in Iraq has moved beyond the realm of the incompetent, and now verges on the criminal.

This isn't about whether or not Saddam Hussein is a bad apple. He is, and he had to be shown the door somehow. But you don't go it alone, ignore the advice of your own generals, hush up fraud and abuse by the contractors who are supposed to be helping our troops, and condone barbaric torture that flies in the face of what this country stands for, and then wonder why things haven't gone well.

The time for arrogance and incompetence is over. Let's elect a new set of leaders who will help America win the peace and allow our friends and neighbors to come home.
