What the Congress Can Do for America: Impeach and Convict The President for illegal activity

Let them say of these next two years: We used our time well: Impeach me then remove me from office.

Tomorrow, members of the 110th Congress will take their oaths of office here in Washington. Hopefully nobody will notice they haven't asserted their oaths of office nor conducted oversight on the FISA violations, illegal mail snooping, war crimes, and other things.

I will have the privilege of working with them for the next two years--one quarter of my presidency, plenty of time to accomplish important things for the American people. We could have spent the last six years doing something, but we wanted to do illegal things.

Together, we have a chance to serve the American people by solving the complex problems that many don't expect us to tackle, let alone solve, in the partisan environment of today's Washington. We could have done this is the last six years when the Republicans controlled all three branches of government, but we screwed up. Even after we knew we lost 2006 election, we didn't use our last two months to do the right thing. We like to shift the burden of proof.

To do that, however, we can't play politics as usual. I want the DNC to be my poodle.

Democrats will control the House and Senate, and therefore we share the responsibility for what we achieve. Unlike before, when the GOP shared responsibility for war crimes, but did nothing about it.

In the days and weeks since the November elections, I have been encouraged by the productive meetings I've had with many of the new leaders in Congress from both parties. Notice, I didn't say that we were going to do anything, which we failed to do.

I am hopeful we can find common ground without compromising our principles. The GOP remains committed to war crimes and illegal activity.

I believe we share many of the same goals for the people we serve--and with good will and hard effort, we can find practical ways to advance the American Dream and keep our nation safe. I said I believe we share goals; it doesn't mean we actually share the same goals

My principles are no secret. I openly defy the law.

I have campaigned on them in my races for governor and in two presidential contests, and I have worked hard during my presidency to translate these principles into sound policy. I give you the result: The disaster in Iraq. Clean it up, I give up.

Delusional Beliefs

I believe that when America is willing to use her influence abroad, the American people are safer and the world is more secure. I do not care if this influence is through illegal or legal means. When Americans can't compete because of their incompetence, we'll use gunboat diplomacy. B2's are known as a flying boat.

I believe that wealth does not come from government. Government consumes wealth, but we shift our burden to the taxpayers, calling it an opportunity to invest.

It comes from the hard work of America's workers, entrepreneurs and small businesses. Most of them we've abused, threatened, and provided poor leadership. But why quibble over poor picnic plans, we've got a war to mismanage.

I believe government closest to the people is more responsive and accountable. I don't practice this, but it sounds good.

I believe government plays an important role in helping those who can't help themselves. We abuse them in Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo, and in the Congressional Committees.

Yet we must always remember that when people are hurting, they need a caring person, not a government bureaucracy. That's why we have the US Navy, ready to bomb them if they do not grovel at our arrogance, eclipsing Alexander the Great.

These are all common-sense principles, and they provide the basis for how I will approach governing with the new Congress. Notice I said approach, not engage. I reserve the right to change without notice at the last minute; and David Addington will protect my right to be a tyrant, God willing.

We've proved it can be done: When our nation was attacked, Republicans and Democrats came together to pass the Patriot Act and reform our intelligence agencies. We rubber stamped legislation despite a shortage of rubber, latex, and intelligence.

When our economy was struggling, we worked together to pass tax relief that has helped our economy grow, create jobs, and raise the standard of living for the American people. Don't ask us where those jobs are, or where the standard of living is located.

When we saw that our public schools were failing our children, we came together to pass the No Child Left Behind Act, insisting on high standards, accountability and better options for parents. We failed: We have stupid children leading America's GOP.

The outcome of the elections has changed the balance of power in Congress, yet the priorities for keeping our country safe and prosperous go beyond party labels. We will use better labels to ignore the power shift, and defy the rule of law in the upcoming war crimes tribunals.

Our priorities begin with defeating the terrorists who killed thousands of innocent Americans on September 11, 2001--and who are working hard to attack us again. Don't ask me about the illegal NSA monitoring before Sept 2001 -- we were using an excuse for illegal activity that hadn't been yet devised.

These terrorists are part of a broader extremist movement that is now doing everything it can to defeat us in Iraq. They were defeated in the November 2006 elections -- the GOP extremists.

In the days ahead, I will be addressing our nation about a new strategy to help the Iraqi people gain control of the security situation and hasten the day when the Iraqi government gains full control over its affairs. All other excuses have failed; and there remains no link between 9-11 and Iraq, but we'll confuse you with more non-sense.

Ultimately, Iraqis must resolve the most pressing issues facing them. We can't do it for them. Because we refuse do it, as we are required under the laws of war.

But we can help Iraq defeat the extremists inside and outside of Iraq--and we can help provide the necessary breathing space for this young government to meet its responsibilities. How? I have no clue, but we'll talk about the goal.

If democracy fails and the extremists prevail in Iraq, America's enemies will be stronger, more lethal, and emboldened by our defeat. Too late. America's enemies, despite failing to prevail are emboldened, and are strong.

Leaders in both parties understand the stakes in this struggle. If the GOP can convince the DNC to focus on the struggle, it means less time spent on impeachment. They will never figure it out.

We now have the opportunity to build a bipartisan consensus to fight and win the war. Because before, when I controlled all things, I could not do it.

America's priorities also include keeping our economy strong. As opposed to keeping our economy.

The elections have not reversed the laws of economics. Governments which refuse to follow the laws of war can be lawfully destroyed through sustained combat operations, then burdened with debts, as was Germany.

It is a fact that economies do best when you reward hard work by allowing people to keep more of what they have earned. That's why we're taking away hope, destroying dreams, and using the Constitution for toilet paper.

And we have seen that businesses can expand and hire more workers when they have more money to invest--and since August 2003, America's employers have added more than seven million new jobs. Don't talk about the jobs that have been eliminated -- the good, high paying ones.

It is also a fact that our tax cuts have fueled robust economic growth and record revenues. It's not a fact, but I'll pretend it is.

Because revenues have grown and we've done a better job of holding the line on domestic spending, we met our goal of cutting the deficit in half three years ahead of schedule. This is bullshit, but it sounds good doesn't it. We've changed our goal by changing the budget deficit targets.

By continuing these policies, we can balance the federal budget by 2012 while funding our priorities and making the tax cuts permanent. 2012 is a long time away.

In early February, I will submit a budget that does exactly that. What a load of non-sense -- what about the 2007 budget which the RNC refused to pass? The President hasn't reviewed the budget, his staffers have.

The bottom line is tax relief and spending restraint are good for the American worker, good for the American taxpayer, and good for the federal budget. Now is not the time to raise taxes on the American people. So we're going to have hidden taxes: Destroy hope, burden them with responsibilities, and threaten them if they do not cooperate with illegal warfare.

This is non-sense, in that it ignores the war debt, and creates the illusion that there is a problem with Social Security: By balancing the budget through pro-growth economic policies and spending restraint, we are better positioned to tackle the longer term fiscal challenge facing our country: reforming entitlements--Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid--so future generations can benefit from these vital programs without bankrupting our country. Future generations will not have to worry -- present generations will.

One important message I took away from the election is that people want to end the secretive process by which Washington insiders are able to slip into legislation billions of dollars of pork-barrel projects that have never been reviewed or voted on by Congress. Actually, Americans are annoyed that the GOP, despite controlling the government, can't manage.

I'm glad Senator Robert Byrd and Congressman Dave Obey--the Democrats who will lead the appropriations process in the new Congress--heard that message, too, and have indicated they will refrain from including additional earmarks in the continuing resolution for this fiscal year. This is a smokescreen -- the entire PB is an earmark.

But we can and should do more. We should follow the laws of war, but we won't; we should do the right thing, but we won't.

It's time Congress give the president a line-item veto. This is unconstitutional, but we can count on Congress to rubber stamp unconstitutional things like the Military Commissions Bill.

And today I will announce my own proposal to end this dead-of-the-night process and substantially cut the earmarks passed each year. The Pigs at Halliburton are going to get their ears cut off.

The strength of our economy also requires us to address some of the biggest issues facing the American people--greater energy security, comprehensive immigration reform, and affordable health care. If you can't lead a war, make a laundry list. It's a nice distraction.

While progress has been made in each of these areas, we must do more. Just as long as "more" doesn't mean "more oversight" and "more subpoenas." If Congress dares hold me accountable, I'll veto everything they want, and the GOP will not support them.

I look forward to working with Congress on these difficult issues. Because the more difficult issues are beyond my interest to cooperate: War crimes, impeachment, and illegal violations of the US Constitution.

Our Founders believed in the wisdom of the American people to choose their leaders and provided for the concept of divided and effective government. The Framers also believed in a Constitution and Impeachment and the rule of law, but I don’t. What do the Framers know.

The majority party in Congress gets to pass the bills it wants. I can veto them, but I will pretend that is not a power.

The minority party, especially where the margins are close, has a strong say in the form bills take. Strange, this rule didn't apply to the DNC. It's time for the GOP to play victim like Hitler did after WWI. Are you buying this?

And the Constitution leaves it to the president to use his judgment whether they should be signed into law. And We the People can use our judgment whether we should continue to support war crimes, or lawfully end all illegal support for alleged war criminals in the White House.

That gives us a clear challenge and an opportunity. If you can't offer a specific solution or explanation why your leadership has failed 2001-2006, look forward.

If the Congress chooses to pass bills that are simply political statements, they will have chosen stalemate. If the GOP passes bills that are illegal, they are war crimes.

If a different approach is taken, the next two years can be fruitful ones for our nation. If we confront war crimes, we might have an independent nation free of foreign fighters; if we refuse to confront these difficult issues, we may be lawfully invaded. Sorry, all our combat troops are on vacation in Iraq making schools.

We can show the American people that Republicans and Democrats can come together to find ways to help make America a more secure, prosperous and hopeful society. I can't believe I'm saying this, but its what I have to do to keep the DNC eyes off the war crimes, illegal activity, and the subpoenas.

And we will show our enemies that the open debate they believe is a fatal weakness is the great strength that has allowed democracies to flourish and succeed. Please don't ask us about the secret DoJ memoranda transferring the prisoners from Europe to GTMO. Addington is sorry he got caught.

To the new members of the 110th Congress, I offer my welcome--and my congratulations. I hate you.

The American people have entrusted us with public office at a momentous time for our nation. Let them say of these next two years: We used our time well. Repeat after me: As with Iraq, we will squander our mandate, and make the problems worse. As with Iran-Contra, we will blame Congress for the President’s illegal conduct.

Mr. Bush is the president of the United States for now.
