Decisions, Decisions

One thing about the decider, once he decides something, the decision is made. No amount of reason can change his mind, he's bound and determined to follow the course his mind is already traveling down.
Take Iran for instance. He's decided that diplomacy won't work, so he's decided not to use it. He's decided to attack Iran, even though there is no reason to. Even though Russia still wants to work out a solution, Bush has decided. Even though Iran has agreed to suspend it's nuclear activities in exchange for security assurances, Bush can't assure them he won't attack, because he's already decided he's going to.
Well, he's not going to attack, but the US will, because Bush has decided we will. The ghost of Osama is running all over Pakistan, which does have nuclear weapons, but still, Bush has decided to attack Iran. Why? Beyond the billion dollar no-bid contracts, Iran has oil, and Bush has decided that his buddies in the oil business aren't making enough profits, so he has to start World War III, just to fill their coffers a little more, because they've filled Republican coffers in return. Hey, big surprise!
The decider has decided you are irrelevant, something he decided in 2000, when he decided to stop the vote count that would have decided who would govern our land. He's decided that you should make sacrifices so US companies can compete in the global economy, with out making any sacrifices themselves.
He's decided that God wanted him to be president, which is why he decided he doesn't need to follow the Constitution. And he's decided to spy on you because he's decided that if you are not with him, you are against him, which helped him decide that you are the enemy.
Now since Bush has decided he's Big Brother, he has also decided to help his little brother, Israel, if they are attacked. Surely you remember the behavior of the kid who always started trouble, and then threatened to call his Big Brother when you had the temerity to fight back? They did as they pleased, confident in the fact that Big Brother would protect them no matter what, even if little brother bombed Iran's nuclear facilities. So if little brother decides he's the only one on the block who should have a ten-speed, and decides to destroy yours, good old Big Brother will be there like an enabler, making sure that li'l brother can do as he pleases with impunity.
Bush has also decided the war in Iraq is a success, because he's decided not to heed to the bad news coming out of there. He's also decided to only stand before pre-screened crowds that agree with his decision, which has helped him decided that the American people stand behind his decision to invade based on lies.
One would be inclined to think, that with all this deciding going on, the law of averages would be on Bush's side, and he might have made at least one good decision. (And by 'good decision', I mean one that's good for the country as a whole, not good for the country----club) But no, as much as I've tried to think of one, he just hasn't made a good one in, well, I was going to say five years, but this goes farther back than that, he just has never made one. From every Cabinet member to every political appointee, the man has not made one good decision. Maybe that's why he keeps deciding. Maybe one of these days, he'll get it right.

Well, he's consistent. Doesn't that count for something?

Granny said...

Well said, Lew.

romunov said...

He's not consistent. He flops all the time!

Ron Nasty said...

Right! He consistently flops!

pissed off patricia said...

Don't count on anything he does hence forth to be good because if it's good for him, it's hell for us. I decided that, all by myself.

kissfan said...

I decided long ago that this man's an incompetent fool.

Does that make me a decider too?

Left of Center said...

It amazes me that he was elected after having no success whatsoever in his private life. Everythihng he has was a charity donation.

Kathy said...

Left of Center brings up a good point. Bush left a mess in Texas after his stint as governor so why did people believe he could govern? Just because a person is a "good ole boy," it doesn't mean that person is competent to run a country.

I've decided half the voters are irrelevant. If they can't vote intelligently, then they should stay home.

Omnipotent Poobah said...

Romunov,
Well, that's consistent isn't it? Very predictable our Georgie is. Flops every time!

romunov said...

Bush had a briliant campaign adviser (Rove) and some friends at Diebold, as well as some friends in Florida (Harris, Jeb).

Mix everything together and you get a cowboy president.

Lily said...

Well its the total disregard for reason and new information. Even if he was hellbent on going into Iraq, even a jackass would have realized they needed to be prepared for an expected insurgency. he doesn't even get being an asshole right. He can't even warmonger properly.

jay lassiter said...

I can;t wait till november when I'm the decider.

EmascuMan said...

Well supposed decider. Diebold may be the decider. Or a new Katherine Harris.

Ron Nasty said...

Or a new Katherine Harris. Yeah, I heard she's had a lot of work done.

Snave said...

I've decided he is a consistently bad decider, and that he has decided he doesn't like the Constitution, the House or the Senate. He doesn't want to share the job of deciding with anyone, and he has decided he should be the ONLY one deciding. I've decided that he thinks an awful lot like a dicator.

Lily said...

Yes, Snave, he sure has.
