It Is Flatly Terrifying. . .

To Actually Watch Bush's Disconnect From Reality.
by The Old Hippie - Post 2nd Debate Rant - Oct. 9, 2004

And then to see the CNN headline that the debate was a "tie," but when you go to their own "Quick Vote," on the same front page of their web site, for their viewers (545,639 votes) to vote on who won the debate, 74% say Kerry did to 23% for Bush!  See the irrational disconnect from reality by CNN?

What about the others. . . ?

Right after the debate I jumped to FOX's quick vote, and at that time it was 70% Kerry to 30% for Bush, (only 14,000 vote then,) but this morning (with 442,840 votes) the FOX viewers gave Bush the win with 53% for Bush and 46% for Kerry.  See the irrational disconnect from reality by FOX viewers?

At CBS It is 87.5% Kerry to 11.9% for Bush, and their reporting was a bit more spirited than the others.

But what flatly terrified me was to suffer through watching the complete disconnect from reality of "our" president during this 2nd debate.  Embarrassing just doesn't cover it.  Terrifying is much more accurate.

George Walker Bush, actually indicated that Charles Duelfer's report, Bush's own appointed chief inspector, that there never was any WMD, there are none, and that Iraq didn't have, doesn't have, the means to make WMDs, Bush still, in a total disconnect from reality - said that Duelfer's report justified his invasion of Iraq.

Bush actually, again in a terrifying disconnect from reality, stated flatly "I guess you'd say I'm a good steward of the land."  Kerry's opening retort, "Boy, to listen to that -- the president, I don't think, is living in a world of reality with respect to the environment." - best described my gut feeling at that moment.

By every indicator, war, economics, judicial appointments, command of facts, jobs, security, health care, social security, understanding of the day-to-day needs of the lower 80%, understanding the importance and value of separation of church and state, understanding the importance and value of the nation's science unfettered by politics - and many other just as important realities - Bush is the most terrifyingly corrupt, inept, consistently out of touch with reality, the worst president, if not in our nation's history, at least since the era of the robber barons.

I've studied the rise of fascists in the history.  i.e. Hitler, Mussolini, Franco, Suharto, and Pinochet.
I look at what is happening in my America today.  I compare the glaring similarities. . .

It is flatly terrifying.
