590 Days


Today is June 11, 2007. There are 590 days left in the Bush presidency. I'm counting down to this major event as I and many of my fellow Americans look upon 12:01 pm eastern time January 20, 2009 as a day of liberation. Regardless of which party sends the next occupant to the White House, they will be sent with one primary mission. End this nightmare in Iraq.

Mr. Bush will hopefully ride off into the sunset to his ranch in Crawford and not show himself for many years. As he claims to be a Christian, perhaps he can spend the majority of his retirement atoning for the tragedy he has unleashed on the world and realize that that Jesus would have had nothing to do with this war. While I do not wish ill to the man I do hope he has no peace until he truly understands what he has done and asks for foregiveness. It is the one thing that can redeem him. Until then, I hope the ghosts of of the peoople killed in Iraq as a result of his decision visit him in the night, causing him fitful and restless sleep and to make him think hard about the hell he unleashed on the world. Conservative estimates tell us that around 40,000 people have been killed in Iraq as a result of the war. Since the president is in his early 60's, and will probably live to his mid-80's, that's about 25 years of about 4 of the dead visiting him nightly...
