This is an opinion thread, so it doesn't matter where you lean or if you lean at all... what is your suggestion to Junior? I wanna stop thrashing his azz for a while... so let's forget about the past mistakes and give feedback and guidance: "what can bushy do now?" I hope not to get the obvious suggestions such as "kill himself, or step down from office", or anything like that... i don't want to say that you are not entitled to that opinion, but those are just not very likely to happen. So, here's my first suggestion for you to attack: 1) Open discussions with the United Nations to get their opinion on what America should do to gain the world's trust back and end the war. Since his attention is diverted from Iraq, the odds of having a clearcut victory will diminish. He needs to focus his energy at home or he may lose both fronts. Analogy: if you are financially viable and your children are sick, you should not be going to work until they are recovering. If you love your kids, you will not be able to work with a clear mind anyway. If you do not take care of your children, your children will not take care of you. So, what do you propose?
