Last week, I was musing about President Bush’s January 2002 State of the Union Address, and so I went and reread it. [It still remains my most favorite speech delivered by Mr. Bush]
Now, why was I musing? Well, I kept pondering the President’s reference to the “Axis of Evil.”
Remember how President Bush shook things up in that Address when he identified Korea, Iraq and Iran as the “axis of evil”? To this day, ardent liberals pontificate that it is “inflammatory statements” such as this that has caused us to lose our good will and credibility with countries in Europe and the Middle East. [Which is why it is my favorite speech, and I dare say, the favorite of many. You go, G.W.!]
However, while pondering it these past few days, a thought began to dawn on me which gave me pause … I dare say, I think our President might have been in error … because I started to wonder if the Axis of Evil may actually be House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Rep. Barney Frank and Rep. Christopher Dodd!
And then Speaker Pelosi opened her, oh, how does one say this delicately, “[cow]-pie-hole” on Sunday, which was convincing, and then on Monday, right after she placed her carefully pedicured cloven foot in her surgically enhanced mouth that it was confirmed – she is a card-carrying, dues-paying [albeit, with our tax monies] member of that special partisan club, The Bush Bashing Axis of Evil Triumvirate of the greater Washington, D.C. area!
Well, at least she was able to get something confirmed ….
As the adage goes, “keep your friends close and your enemies even closer.”
