Can We Have the Election Right Now Before Bush Starts WWIII?

Bush has made an unimaginable mess in the Middle East that might take generations to clean up. But he can't stop himself from causing more problems for the US by destabilizing the world even further, as that seems to be his greatest skill.

This time Bush is aiming his unique anti-diplomatic skills toward Russia, as if the US doesn't have enough world-wide problems to manage. Bush announced that the US is deploying an anti-missile shield in former Soviet bloc country the Czech Republic. The Czech population opposes it overwhelmingly and Putin is going ballistic, saying that he will start pointing Russian nuclear missiles at the US.

Perhaps with a CBS News poll indicating that W is the worst president ever, and that Reagan was the best, W wants to recreate the Cold War so he can be Reagan and again close a war that was over 20 years ago. Maybe that is why he added to the missile crisis by saying, just before the coming G-8 Summit, that Russian reforms were "derailed." I don't disagree with that, but it sure makes Bush's famously naive statement about Putin in 2001 as that Bush said
"I looked the man in the eye. I found him to be very straight forward and trustworthy and we had a very good dialogue. "I was able to get a sense of his soul.
Putin is a former KGB officer who pocketed Bob Kraft's Super Bowl ring. I don't know what is worse, being a fool enough to trust Putin based on eye contact or trying to antagonize his nation now. Any president with a brain would have avoided both.

So let's have an election in 2007. The candidates are primed and ready to go. And the US cannot afford one more year of W's scary stupidity, ego and recklessness.
