I'm Sick of It.

Have you ever had an incredibly large, un-ignorable situation going on within your household?

It's there, it's important, you want to be kept apprised and you fully support working it out as quickly as possible, but as the household must go on, there is no need to monopolize every second of every day with conversation on said topic.

Understand that this is coming from someone who talks shit to death. When my husband yells, "Alright already!" that would my cue to shut the hell up.

But as big as this war on terrorism is, and as much as I support (and will be voting for) Bush, I would like to hear something else come out of his mouth when he addresses the nation.


What else are we working on? Tax structure sucks. Foster care program sucks.
(I really don't get why I am being taxed to fucking death to support entitlement programs catering to lazy adults, while their own children suffer.)

What makes it even worse, is that the speeches seem to be more and more desperate in their attempt to justify our involvement overseas. I understand that he's being attacked. But I don't think he owes them an explanation every time he opens his mouth.

If people do not get the "WHY?" part of it by now, they're not going to. They need to shut up, sit down and let someone else think for them.

Of course they're not going to, but why cater to them? Why not use the hour-long addresses to the nation to talk to those of us who are with him?

I could appreciate something along the lines of:

I. So here's where we are on the war:
A. How we've responded to the dumb shit they've pulled recently.
B. What our immediate goals are.
C. How our long term goals have changed, if at all.

Moving right along...

II. This is where we are domestically:
A. Liberals are trying to suck you dry and...
1. I'm fighting them?
2. I'm letting them?
3. What?
B. Clinton left a big stinky mess up in here and I'm...
1. Fixing it?
2. Ignoring it?
3. What?

What else is happening? I don't want to talk about gay rights or prescriptions for the elderly. What else?

Yeah, I’m sick of it too. But, he’s got to do it. After the beating he’s taken in the partisan news media he can’t just not address the issues they’ve been beating him over the head with. I agree with you on what the real issues are, but we don’t have the power to set the agenda. So, if you want to bitch, direct your wrath at the bunch that deserves it – the damned leftists that control the national news media, and therefore, the topics for debate.

Unfortunately, I AM an incredibly large, un-ignorable situation, and we don't eat our own, so mum's the word with me.

Dear Key:

While volumes can (and have) been written on these topics you've raised, it's probably important to realise that Bush isn't going to be able to do anything about them -- no more than Kerry, or McCain, or Nader, for that matter.

Our former enemies sound like Republicans; our enemies were all too recently our friends; old Communists are making sense (explain that one!), and the status quo is just that -- status.

As a friend of mine puts it all too well -- "I am surrounded by idiots. I trudge on."

Be well!

I agree.

I also believe the liberal press is a huge part of the problem.

Amen, sister.
