Commander In Chief

Dubya was intent on being "Commander in Chief" long before he became president, and is seen here on the White House web site, telling this to the American Legion 12 days previous to 911. Why was he saying this before the disaster even happened? It was during this presentation that he revealed his huge defense budget, and warned of roque nations and weapons of mass destruction. He also mentioned that he had set up a Western Whitehouse in Crawford Texas, apparently while he was on a month vacation.

  1. The Gerbil set up his work games but what he didn't know is that he will be IMPEACHED. So he will to be waving as he resigns and says those famous words, " I am not a crook" as he leaves office. Oh and Cheney's health condition will be his reasons for resigning.
