For the past seven years, we have watched as America has moved steadily backwards. We have become a nation that is less free and less fair. We have become a nation that no longer values the right to privacy and has tragically retreated from our cherished foundations.
Nothing George W. Bush saaid will change the sad reality of the America he has given us:
- Our economy teeters on the edge of recession while property taxes spike and homeowners are losing their homes at record levels;
- Our educational system is broken and our teachers are abandoned;
- Our roads and bridges languish in disrepair, while our borders and ports remain under-inspected and insecure;
- Our most basic ideals about law and justice have been tossed out, as our President uses fear to pursue his reckless agenda; and
- We remain mired in Iraq – a war built on lies and manipulated intelligence.
Nowhere in American history - not even Watergate - have we been confronted with an Administration so ambivalent about the truth and established law. A recent nonpartisan study found that the Bush Administration lied over 900 times in the prelude to the Iraq war, misleading us on nearly every critical issue.
It is time that we reclaim this country and undue the damage wrought by George W. Bush and Dick Cheney.
Democrats in Congress must stand up and lead – no matter the cost.
We need to finally act on the promises of the 2006 election and stop at nothing to bring our troops home from the Iraq. If we do not act Bush will install a permanent US presence in Iraq and John McCain's vision of a 100 year US occupation will become reality.

It is time that we faced up to our global responsibilities and begin to prevent global warming. In the richest nation on earth, it is long past time that we provide health insurance to every single American.
My rear! only when he threw a tantrum or got his way. I am sick of his crap! Come together, doing the people's business, when the hell is that going to start? It won't! He said From expanding opportunity to protecting our country, we've made good progress.Bull shit! This guy is stupefying in his blatant BS! The BS is sickening and goes on and on but this was enough for me!
In the work ahead, we must be guided by the philosophy that made our nation great. As Americans, we believe in the power of individuals to determine their destiny and shape the course of history. We believe that the most reliable guide for our country is the collective wisdom of ordinary citizens. WTF! Since when does he listen to anyone let alone us. He says and shows we do not matter. He said he would rather listen to his dog. He has done nothing right and listened to no one. I hope to God people remember that and give this idiot his just reward in History. If you have not seen it and can take the obvious, underhanded, two faced BS please read the transcript
I want to focus on the Democrats response to his proud lies! Facing a worst-of-all-worlds combination of war and a possible recession he created Bush did not embrace any of the high-risk policy gambles, such as Iraq, immigration, Social Security and other ventures, that have defined his presidency as a total failure. He instead sketched a narrow path of small-scale skirmishes with Congress on spending, deadlock with Democrats on Iraq policy and fervent hope that his signature tax cuts do not vanish with his presidency as they damn well better. Democratic Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius called for "a new course" for the nation on Monday, saying Americans "have no more patience with divisive politics" and urging President Bush to join "the vast majority of Americans" to make needed change. He should! Didn't the idiot just say he trusts us? ARGHH!
Sebelius said her "American response" to the president's State of the Union address was "a national call to action on behalf of the struggling families here in the heartland, and across this great country" and "a wake-up call to Washington, on behalf of a new American majority, that time is running out on our opportunities to meet our challenges and solve our problems." The 58-year-old Sebelius said that the American people "are not nearly as divided as our rancorous politics might suggest." I disagree with her there because we are divided. The division has been created by Bush between average Americans and those that benefit from Bush's division.
"The new Democratic majority of Congress and the vast majority of Americans are ready -- ready to chart a new course," she said, adding that restoring America's status in the world and improving the fight against terrorism would not have to wait for a new president if "more Republicans in Congress stand with us this year."
I agree with Governor Sebelius but there is going to be one hell of a struggle and nothing positive will get accomplished for our America or average Americans as long as Bush is in power. we have to restore "our America" and "our Rights" that is all we have to do but It is going to be a lot harder than most can imagine. I can not remotely seeing those who are really behind the agenda Bush is pushing through allowing all his destructive accomplishments to be turned back. We think it is bad now! We are headed towards an even harder future but we can persevere
