It's hard NOT to take note of this dubious four year anniversary. But perhaps the original photo was right, and maybe he wasn't referring to Iraq. If the "mission accomplished
" refers to making government ineffective by subjugating it to his own personal agenda, then he has been successful beyond measure.
By ignoring the advice of anybody except the cadre of "yes-men & women" he surrounds himself with, and by ignoring the will of the American people he has clearly cemented his legacy as "the worst President ever". Unable and unwilling to admit mistakes, he trudges on like the guy driving the car who is too proud or stupid to pull over and ask for directions.
He still thinks that he can utilize blame shifting to veto the funding bill with the withdrawal deadlines he so abhors. His fancy footwork may have distracted us in the past, but few will ignore that the responsibility for our continued failures lies clearly at his feet. No amount of finger pointing can distract us. Enough lies, enough death, enough corruption, enough failure. In another place and another time, these acts would have at least been impeachable offenses, although I think we should view them as the treasonous acts that they really are.
