I didn’t ratify a damned thing, buddy!

So, according to this article (it *is* CBS news, so it could be false…), our wise, sage of a president has made another sweeping generalization about his re-election (remember the supposed “mandate”?).

  • President Bush says his re-election proves Americans agree with his decision to invade Iraq, and that as a result, there’s no need to hold any administration officials accountable for mistakes made in planning for the war, or its aftermath.
  • “We had an accountability moment, and that’s called the 2004 elections,” Mr. Bush said in an interview with The Washington Post for Sunday’s editions. “The American people listened to different assessments made about what was taking place in Iraq, and they looked at the two candidates, and chose me.”

I refer back to the thought I am frequently left with when this trained monkey, ahem, man speaks.

What. The. Fuck.
