President George W. Bush, Jr.
Attempts Our Species-Jump Down

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

October 21, 2006

To sum it all up: on the surface of events so far, the principal fault of the current U.S. Administration of President George W. Bush, Jr., is, that the entire term of that President has been, from the start, an attempt at a species-jump down. Call him "Miniver Cheevy" Bush: "... child of scorn," and concede, that "he had reasons"; but, also say, that that child of scorn, is what he is, now, and in history to come.

That fault lies within the personality of the President himself; but, therefore, what should we say of his accomplices within government, as in the U.S. Congress, for example, who have failed, especially during this year to date, to hold that worse than reckless human failure, this Bozo, this President, in check?

Assume, for just a moment, for the sake of argument, that the world's problems today are chiefly a result of U.S. policy. That is not true, but, assume it were, just to set up the discussion of what is no mere assumption; the very real fact is, that the U.S., while scarcely the sole author of the present global crisis, now continues to play a leading role, in pushing the world as a whole, more and more, into virtual "Hell." No direction in policy-making presently adopted so far by this Bush government of the U.S.A., or those of western and central Europe of the same time, has really produced any good. This is, emphatically, so in economic policy, whether in the U.S.A., in western central Europe, or beyond. The world's economy, not only that of the U.S.A., is not only collapsing, but, under presently prevailing policy-making, is nearing the end-phase of a threatened, collective nose-dive into oblivion.

In the meantime, everything this wretched President Bush does, seem to turn into you-know-what; the bigger his wild-eyed claims of success, during this current year so far, in getting most of the Senators to crawl, and to lick his, or Felix Rohatyn's stinking political feet, the greater each of this President's successive failures becomes....
