What's Right For America?

George W Bush today attacked opponents of his immigration bill by saying "they don't want to do what's right for America." This of course begs the question: Does Bush know what's right for America?
-He ignored intelligence on alQaeda's determination to strike in the US. This led to 9/11. Was that the right thing to do for America?
-His rampant cronyism in political appointments put an incompetent in charge of FEMA (Michael Brown) who was unable to respond to a major crisis (Hurricane Katrina). He also put another crony (Paul Wolfowitz)in charge of the World Bank, who then shook them down for a raise for his mistress. Was that right for America?
-His choice for VP schemed to concoct false intelligence that was the basis for a war based on lies with no clear mission, and no viable exit strategy. Now the war has gone on to create more animosity towards the US, recruiting more extremists who wish to attack Americans. Was that good for America?
-Has signed a directive that allows him to stay in power in order to assure "continuity of government" in case of any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions. This decision is left to the deciderer, and we know how good his decisions have been in the past. Is establishiong a corporatic dictatorship good for America?
So Bush thinks this latest bill is good for he country, but is it good for the US to flood the labor pool when forty million American skilled workers are about to have their jobs outsourced by the corpocracy? Espesially when the US economy is leaving record numbers in severe poverty. Just how out of touch is the president?
''Last November, the American people said they were frustrated and wanted a change in our strategy in Iraq,'' he said April 24. ''I listened. Today, General David Petraeus is carrying out a strategy that is dramatically different from our previous course.''
''I recognize there are a handful there, or some, who just say, 'Get out, you know, it's just not worth it. Let's just leave.' I strongly disagree with that attitude. Most Americans do as well.''

Is it right for America to have a leader so out of touch, so deep in denial that he has no idea what the message was that people sent to him and the other members of the corpocracy last November?
No.It is not.
