We don't need to worry?

Just when you think the insane fuckery emanating from the mouth of George W. Bush can't get any crazier, he goes ahead and says something even more horrendously insane.

Like, for example, in the case of making a deal to hand over East Coast port security to an Arab nation with ties to terrorism, saying that "[p]eople don't need to worry about security."

I know, I know, you're probably thinking, "isn't Bush the same asshole who is constantly scaring us with threats about terrorist attacks every time some scandal comes out revealing some brand-spankin' ew crime he or some crony of his has committed against America?"

And of course the answer to that question is yes, he is.

As stated by E.J. Dionne, Jr. in the Washington Post, and proven every time some scandal like money laundering by Tom DeLay or bribes being accepted by Jack Abramoff rears its ugly head, Bush is fond of saying that 'anyone accusing his administration of having "manipulated the intelligence and misled the American people" was giving aid and comfort to the enemy. "These baseless attacks send the wrong signal to our troops and to an enemy that is questioning America's will," Bush declared last week. "As our troops fight a ruthless enemy determined to destroy our way of life, they deserve to know that their elected leaders who voted to send them to war continue to stand behind them."' His entire 2004 election campaign was predicated on scaring voters into thinking that if they elected John Kerry president (which they did, apparently, which is why Diebold comes in so handy for the Shrub whenever he needs an election rigged) then bin Laden would seize upon the opportunity to attack us again.

Which is why this is so outrageous.

"Critics...note that Dubai was a key transfer point for illicit nuclear technology sales to North Korea, Iran and Libya that were led by Pakistani scientist A.Q. Khan."

So why, when the U.S. should not be outsourcing security to ANY foreign entity yet alone one with ties to the people who murdered nearly 3,000 Americans on 9/11/2001, and when Bush is continually trying to scare us with threats of terrorist attack if he is hindered in his crimes in any way, is he now telling us we have nothing to worry about?

If there's one lesson we can take from the lies of George W. Bush and his cronies, it's that any time he tells us to worry, we shouldn't be worrying. And that every time he tells us not to worry, that's when we need to be worrying.
