Nothing To Hide

Somehow, I think Bush still believes that people are going to take him at his word, despite the current approval ratings, and despite it has been as yet all-but-proven that everything that has come out of his mouth for at least the past eight years has been a complete and utter lie. On the latest White House scandal involving the firing of eight U.S. attourneys, Bush said that he would not let his staff testify under oath because "There is no indication that anybody did anything improper."

That's not how you do it. If you honestly believe that you have nothing to hide, you show that by allowing your people to testify under oath. If they don't testify under oath, then you will never convince anyone that truly nobody did anything improper. Only people who have something to hide are afraid of the truth. Don't do anything wrong, and you shouldn't have anything to fear. Of course, that's probably easy for me to say considering that I'm not currently one of the most corrupt men in politics.

I'm done, though. I keep telling everyone that Bush is the worst President ever, an equal combination of corrupt and inept. I think people are really starting to see it now. Even the Republicans are criticizing him over this. If anyone doesn't distrust Bush by this point, they deserve whatever they get. Bush keeps pushing back, but the more he insists that his people don't need to testify under oath, the less people are going to believe that there hasn't been any wrongdoing. His officials didn't testify under oath to the September 11th commitee and it turned out that they weren't fully honest. His officials didn't testify under oath in the Iraq War investigations and it turned out that they weren't fully honest. His officials didn't testify under oath about domestic surveillance, and they barely answered any questions. Only people with something to hide are afraid of the truth. Does Bush really want this to be his Waterloo?

(If this is substandard, it's because I woke up not feeling very well today.)
