Jules Crittenden Blames You

It continues to blow my mind to read shit like this. Jules Crittenden is, apparently, an "editor and columnist for the Boston Herald," and he writes "the speech George Bush should make Tuesday night":
So what is the best thing I can do tonight? I can tell you the truth. What none of you want to hear. What you’ve been stopping your ears to. The ugly truth.

The State of the Union is a disaster. I did my best, but I made mistakes, and my best wasn’t good enough.

We went to war without building up our army, and now, I am trying to make up for that.

But that is not the disaster.

The disaster is that you, Congress and the American people, do not care to fight.

Faced with a fundamental challenge to our own security, to everything we believe in, to the world order to peace and security for which we and our parents fought so hard for so many years, you now want to pretend like none of these threats are real. You want to surrender to the evil I have been telling you about. An evil that, unchecked, can consume large parts of the world and threatens to usher in a dark age.

You didn’t like it when I talked about evil. Sounded too simple, too uncompromising, too moralistic. Too … biblical.
For real? You HONESTLY believe that the reason Iraq is a catastrophic quagmire and we are Less Safe than we were if Bush had played bumper cars for 5 years is that we have blocked his work? That the American people - and the fucking Republican-led congress - were obstacles to his goals? That he didn't fire randomly at enough targets?

Jules, you are a terrible person.
