    Mr. Bush is troubling because of his incoherent internally consistent delusions of grandeur. As early as 1998, President Bush envisioned himself as wanting to leave a legacy as a great war president.

    In recent interviews in reference to going to war with Iraq, he said that ‘after praying, he made the decision for the American people to go to war with Iraq, and it was the right decision‘. When does one person decide for 300 million Americans when to go to war and what is right? As the war worsened, President Bush claimed that he ‘was responsible for the war and was going to fix it‘. This kind of thinking dehumanizes, ostracizes, and neglects the 25 million Iraqis who know their country and history better than President Bush.

    When Mr. Bush was confronted about his secret executive order to spy and collect data on U.S. citizens, he claimed that ‘he had the power to use any means necessary and he has the constitutional responsibility and constitutional authority to protect the American people‘. These words and behaviors reflect a disoriented president who believes that he IS America, he IS the Constitution, and he IS the military. A president’s responsibility is upholding and protecting the Constitution while it is the responsibility of the U.S. military to defend the American people from enemies abroad..

    Another sign of Mr. Bush’s visions of grandeur is when he claimed that ‘2005 will be a turning point in the history of the Iraqi people, Middle East, and the world.‘ (Regrettably, hundreds and thousands will not be around to experience this ‘turning point‘.) What gives him the right to claim that this time in history is more important than other historical periods? Incoherent people also mix their syntax.

    Listen to President Bush as he tries to explain the rational of the war with Iraq, ‘…but war is brutal, war is death, war is…and I knew that going in. I just don’t remember people, you know, trying to guess.’
