I watched a movie on teh weekend that shed some light on a few things for me. It was the movie "Why we fight". It was very telling and frankly kind of scary. Dwight Eisinhowers farewell address was a stark editorial of what was to come in the US and helped put the American Presidency in perspective.

The President of the US has as much to do with the control of America's policies as I do.

Bush is ostenssibly a muppet. Some has a hand in his *** and is controlling his direction. The "Bush doctrine" is not his or his fathers. It has been around since the end of WWII (LWF).

So why does everybody blame Bush, he is just a muppet?
