The speech George W. Bush SHOULD give:
"Normally, I start these things out by saying "My Fellow Americans." Not doing it this time. If the polls are any indication, I don't know who more than half of you are anymore. I do know something terrible has happened, and that you're really not fellow Americans any longer. I'll cut right to the chase here: I quit. Now before anyone gets all in a lather about me quitting to avoid impeachment, or to avoid prosecution or something, let me assure you: there's been no breaking of laws or impeachable offenses in this office. The reason I'm quitting is simple. I'm fed up with you people. I'm fed up because you have no understanding of what's really going on in the world. Or of what's going on in this once-great nation of ours. And the majority of you are too lazy to do your homework and figure it out. Let's start local. You've been sold a bill of goods by politicians and the news media.
Polls show that the majority of you think the economy is in the tank. And that's despite record numbers of homeowners including record numbers of MINORITY homeowners. And while we're mentioning minorities, I'll point out that minority business ownership is at an all-time high. Our unemployment rate is as low as it ever was during the Clinton Administration. I've mentioned all those things before, but it doesn't seem to have sunk in.
Despite the shock to our economy of 9/11, the stock market has rebounded to record levels and more Americans than ever are participating in these markets. Meanwhile, all you can do is whine about gas prices, and most of you are too dang stupid to realize that gas prices are high because there's increased demand in other parts of the world, and because a small handful of noisy idiots are more worried about polar bears and beachfront property than your economic security.
We face real threats in the world. Don't give me this "blood for oil" thing. If I was trading blood for oil I would've already seized Iraq's oilfields and let the rest of the country go to hell. And don't give me this 'Bush Lied People Died' crud either. If I was the liar you morons take me for, I could've easily had chemical weapons planted in Iraq so they could be 'discovered.' Instead, I owned up to the fact that the intelligence was faulty. Let me remind you that the rest of the world thought Saddam had the goods, same as me. Let me also remind you that regime change in Iraq was official US policy before I came into office. Some guy named 'Clinton ' established that policy. Bet you didn't know that, did you? You dummies need to understand that we face a unique enemy.
Back during the cold war, there were two major competing political and economic models squaring off. We won that war, but we did so because fundamentally, the Communists wanted to survive, just as we do. We were simply able to outspend and out-tech them.
That's not the case this time. The soldiers of our new enemy don't care if they survive. In fact, they want to die. That'd be fine, as long as they weren't also committed to taking as many of you with them as they can. But they are. They want to kill you. And the baddies are all over the globe. You should be grateful that they haven't gotten any more of us here in the United States since September 11. But you're not. That's because you've got no idea how hard a small number of intelligence, military, law enforcement, and homeland security people have worked to make sure of that. When this whole mess started, I warned you that this would be a long and difficult fight.
I'm disappointed how many of you people think a long and difficult fight amounts to a single season of 'Survivor'. Instead, you've grown impatient. You're incapable of seeing things through the long lens of history, the way our enemies do. You think that wars should last a few months, a few years, tops.
Making matters worse, you actively support those who help the enemy. Every time you buy the New York Times, every time you send a donation to a cut-and-run Democrat's political campaign, well, dang it, you might just as well FedEx a grenade launcher to a Jihadist. It amounts to the same thing. In this day and age, it's easy enough to find the truth. It's all over the Internet. It just isn't on the pages of the New York Times or on NBC News. But even if it were, I doubt you'd be any smarter. Most of you would rather watch American Idol.
I could say more about your expectations that the government will always be there to bail you out, even if you're too stupid to leave a city that's below sea level and has a hurricane approaching. I could say more about your insane belief that government, not your own wallet, is where the money comes from. But I've come to the conclusion that were I to do so, it would sail right over your heads.
So I quit. I'm going back to Crawford. I've got an energy-efficient house down there (Al Gore could only dream) and the capability to be fully self-sufficient. No one ever heard of Crawford before I got elected, and as soon as I'm done here pretty much no one will ever hear of it again. Maybe I'll be lucky enough to die of old age before the last pillars of America fall.
Oh, and by the way, Cheney's quitting too. That means Pelosi is your new President. You asked for it. Watch what she does carefully, because I still have a glimmer of hope that there're just enough of you remaining who are smart enough to turn this thing around in 2008.
So that's it. God bless what's left of America. Some of you know what I mean. The rest of you, get lost."
Got this off a news forum. Enjoy.

By that time most folks 401k's would be big enough to retire and unemployment would be in the 2% range.
(yea i know it just about cant get any lower than it is already)
Ahh well, it's just a pipe dream (sigh), one day i think we will all look back on this prosperous time as "the good ol days".

Trotter, it WILL get lower as the "no match" policy comes on line in the next few weeks.
The repubs, i think have finally started to grasp that if they dont get on the pro american/anti-illegal immigration bandwagon they are going to lose and lose big in 08'.
Yea, yea, yea, i know, about dang time and we will all beleive it when we see it. But at this singular moment in time, i am at least hopeful that the R's are finally getting on the right track concerning this issue.
Time will tell.
I hope your doing well Trotter, I hope to see you around.

Are you kidding me? The economic policies of borrow and spend republicans have set this country for fiscal disaster in the very near future. China has pretty much let it be known they will have no problem forcing their hand if we got too froggy on protectionist policies.
China threatens 'nuclear option' of dollar sales
Now here's a little lesson for you. All those borrowed dollars have to be repaid from the US Treasury. The true amount of taxation is the federal budget. Which this administration has expanded beyond any liberal's wildest dreams. As conservative economist Milton Friedman once said, "it's either big taxes now, or bigger taxes later." Bush will be long gone when those bills have to be repaid.
Your prediction of the good ole days is more akin to the emperor's new clothes.
The reason the unemployment rate is so low is because this administration is borrowing cash. It doesn't take a Harvard MBA to do that.
I'll ask you on a personal level. Are your finances in better shape when you have debt or no debt? Same as it is with a nation.
