"I think I was unprepared for war," Bush told ABC News' Charlie Gibson in an interview airing today on "World News." "In other words, I didn't campaign and say, 'Please vote for me, I'll be able to handle an attack,'" he said. "In other words, I didn't anticipate war. Presidents -- one of the things about the modern presidency is that the unexpected will happen." ......"I'm sorry it's happening, of course," Bush said in a wide-ranging interview with ABC's "World News," which was airing Monday. "Obviously I don't like the idea of people losing jobs,(I'll be losing mine in a couple of months and have a chance to write reflections on how I fucked up this country!...oh wellI guess I'll just work on my ranch hauling hay and cleaning bush!)or being worriedworried heir 401(k)s.

On the other hand, the American people got to know that we will safeguard the system. I mean, we're in. And if we need to be in more, we will."words from our Prez!!"I think it was a repudiation of Republicans," he told Charlie Gibson of ABC News, according t o a transcript released by the network Monday. "And I'm sure some people voted for Barack Obama because of me. I think most people voted for Barack Obama because they decided they wanted him to be in their living room for the next four years explaining policy."
(Wow...finally an admision of guilt from this brainwashed leader of fools!)

Now the next neocon puppet really believes that she can save right wing America. She knows that the neocon think tank will back her up and train her the way they trained GW Doofus!Will our country be stupid enough to vote for her like they did for Bush?
Will they let the right Faux news spin everything in her favor so she looks like the best fascist leader of the right wing?

When I get depressed I just look out from my window to our Mermaid Beach!
Well I just woke up at 420 AM to watch the sunrise that I'll be showing you....after I go to bed and take
a little nap :)

BAGHDAD (AFP) - The Iraqi journalist who shot to fame for hurling his shoes at former US president George W. Bush was jailed for three years on Thursday, stirring outrage from his family and supporters.Television reporter Muntazer al-Zaidi, 30, had pleaded not guilty at the Iraq Central Criminal Court to assaulting Bush during his farewell visit to Baghdad last December."He was sentenced to three years in jail," defence lawyer Yahia Attabi said outside the court.The defendant shouted: " Iraq , long live Iraq ," after the verdict was read out, the lawyer told AFP.Chief counsel Dhiya al-Saadi called the conviction severe."I consider the decision harsh. He was charged with assaulting a foreign leader on an official visit, but I don't believe it was an assault," he said. "We will contest the decision and try to get the verdict overturned."There was standing room only at the courtroom on the edge of Baghdad's high security Green Zone as some 200 family members, reporters and lawyers crowded in.Returning his verdict, Judge Abdulamir Hassan al-Rubaie announced he had taken into consideration that Zaidi is young and it was his first offence, the defence lawyers said.Shoe-hurling is an especially grave insult in the Arab and Muslim world and Zaidi had risked up to 15 years in jail on the charge of aggression against a foreign head of state.Bush, deeply unpopular among Arabs for ordering the 2003 invasion of Iraq , had been at a globally televised news conference with Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki when Zaidi let rip with his shoes.The president dodged the flying footwear and later joked about the incident.Bush spokesman Rob Saliterman on Thursday said the case was a "matter for the Iraqi judicial system."When the judge asked Zaidi if he was innocent, the journalist responded: "Yes, my reaction was natural, just like any Iraqi (would have done)."After the verdict, his 25-strong defence team emerged to scenes of chaos. Several family members screamed: "It's an American court... sons of dogs."One brother, Uday, said the decision to jail Zaidi was political."This is a political court. Muntazer is being treated like a prisoner of war. He is not a normal prisoner... This decision has been taken by the prime minister's office."The family said they would both appeal and proceed with plans to bring torture charges against Bush, Maliki and his bodyguards at a human rights court abroad.A Syrian lawyer told AFP she was preparing to file a complaint in Belgium or Spain.Paris-based media watchdog Reporters Without Borders condemned the sentence, calling it "cynical in a country where so many of the people who kill journalists are never brought to justice. We call for his release."Wearing a light-brown suit and thin-framed glasses, Zaidi arrived in a packed courtroom under heavy police escort.Chief counsel Saadi had argued that his client's motives were "honourable.""He was only expressing his feelings. What he could see was the blood of Iraqis at his feet when he watched the US president speaking about his achievements in Iraq ."He also argued that although Iraqi law considered it an attack on a visiting head of state, "his throwing of the shoe did not cause any injury or damage... His goal was to insult Bush for the pain Iraqis have suffered."Zaidi had already spent three months behind bars, Saadi stressed.The Baghdadia television reporter told the court when the trial opened on February 19 that he had been outraged and unable to control his emotions when Bush began speaking."I had the feeling that the blood of innocent people was dropping on my feet during the time that he was smiling and coming to say bye-bye to Iraq with a dinner."So I took the first shoe and threw it but it did not hit him. Then spontaneously I took the second shoe but it did not hit him either. I was not trying to kill the commander of the occupation forces of Iraq ."Zaidi shouted at Bush: "It is the farewell kiss, you dog," before security forces wrestled him to the ground. He also said he was beaten and tortured in custody."
