When Murkans voted for the boy from Texas they voted for record deficits, unchecked energy prices, violating the Geneva Convention, pathological lying, arrogance and hubris, a surrender of moral authority, and thousands of our troops dead so a pathetic excuse of a man could tell his family his strings aren't being pulled by Karl Rove, Don Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney.
