Who can deny that Bush was the worst joke of a president that we have ever had?

Obama has already passed him.

Whoa! BURN!


He's like, a SEAL sniper of the Keyboard Commandos! Dropping liberals left and right on the internet before the nurse gives him his jello and puts him to bed.

GWB was always most comfortable in his original role as male cheerleader.

If only bin Laden would have had a pep rally first, he could have done something.

Bush all but admitted he didn't find his calling as the Decider until after 9/11. We Republicans weren't all that happy with his "compassionate conservatism" and big-spending ways in the early 2000s. Something changed in him that horrible day which made him the bold leader that we so wildly supported in 2004 and can look back on with reverence.

Besides, since when is things that happen during first year in office the fault of the president? Obama still blames Bush for things that happened 3 years ago and I don't hear much criticism on this BBS.

I like how NO ONE remembers this movie or how hard the Republicans canonized it. And I could swear one of the big, loud things Dubya did was cut funding to intelligence agencies as part of his "smaller government, x-files, don't trust gubbmint UN Black Helicopters" business.


I'm afraid to watch that movie again because it won't be satire anymore.
