Haha, Connecticut isn't proud that he was born there, believe me.

Eh, didn't he buy a 20,000 acre ranch in Paraguay or Argentina or something? A country with no extradition to the US, I think.

I'd clap along if he were leaving D.C. and going to prison (with Dickhead Cheney).

Everyone knows if you don't applaud, that's a waterboarding.

On his last day in the White House, I'd like to serenade him with Semisonic's "Closing Time". You don't have to go home, but you can't stay here.

I hope he gets clap. I hope it comes from Jeff Gannon to Karl Rove to George Bush to Condoleeza Rice to Laura Bush.

He should go back with all the other new englander trash.

I'd get the fark of of Connecticut if I was born there too. What a sh*t hole!

Hey, my first greenlight for the main page!

I just can't help by think of Bush as a modern day Nero, starting with the WMD skit he pulled a few years back. The hegemony is so nervy it's astounding.

From the sidebar:

President Bush in his own words
A look at the quotable foreign policy speeches that define George W. Bush's presidency.


I wonder if they'll include this cascade of fail:

"The most important thing is for us to find Osama bin Laden. It is our number one priority and we will not rest until we find him."
- G.W. Bush, 9/13/01

"I want justice...There's an old poster out West, as I recall, that said, 'Wanted: Dead or Alive,'"
- G.W. Bush, 9/17/01, UPI

"...Secondly, he is not escaping us. This is a guy, who, three months ago, was in control of a county [sic]. Now he's maybe in control of a cave. He's on the run. Listen, a while ago I said to the American people, our objective is more than bin Laden. But one of the things for certain is we're going to get him running and keep him running, and bring him to justice. And that's what's happening. He's on the run, if he's running at all. So we don't know whether he's in cave with the door shut, or a cave with the door open -- we just don't know...."
- Bush, in remarks in a Press Availablity with the Press Travel Pool,
The Prairie Chapel Ranch, Crawford TX, 12/28/01, as reported on
official White House site

"I don't know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don't care. It's not that important. It's not our priority."
- G.W. Bush, 3/13/02

"I am truly not that concerned about him."
- G.W. Bush, repsonding to a question about bin Laden's whereabouts,
3/13/02 (The New American, 4/8/02)

Already I am missing him, given the choices we are allowed for his replacement. I am just wondering which of the following are going to be said: "Remember back when Bush was President?..."

1) "We only had three wars at once."
2) "Taxes were only 50%."
3) "Most people still spoke English."
4) "At least we didn't live under Sharia law."
5) "When we were sick, we could go to a doctor."
6) "We could buy toilet paper instead of using $2 million bills."
7) "We had a missile defenses. Oh, God, we had a missile defense. Why did they get rid of our missile defenses? Why, oh God, why?"

Getting a bj from a fat girl is undignified for a president. Get one from a hot chick, youre the farkin Pres.

Killing thousands in a war is bad ass for a Pres, makes legacy and people write books and stuff. Wars make heroes and are cool.


See...W is obviously a better president than Bill was.

"How many days does Bush spend in Texas instead of Washington DC in a calendar year? Bush has had moooooorrreeee vacation days then ANY modern president."

And here we are, eight years later, and he's still telling us we have to worry about terrorists, despite all the things his gov't has done to supposedly stop and catch terrorists (warrantless wire taps, the TSA, fingerprinting any visiting foreigners at our borders). Wasn't he supposed to make us feel safer?

The song "the green green grass of home is about a criminal who is about to be hung who longs for home.
The last verse is:
Then I awake and look around me,
At the four gray walls that surround me,
And I realize that I was only dreaming.
For there's a guard, and there's a sad old padre,
Arm in arm, we'll walk at daybreak.
Again, I'll touch the green, green grass of home


Here's one American who hopes that this is a prophecy, and that the lying little punk meets his end the same way as the criminal in the song.

1) "We only had three wars at once...instead of none under the current Democratic administration."
2) "Taxes were only 50%...unless you were rich or a corporation, then they were practically nonexistent."
3) "Most people still spoke English...pretty much like now."
4) "At least we didn't live under Sharia law...boy, what idiots were were spouting that useless hyperbole."
5) "When we were sick, we could go to a doctor, if we were willing to bankrupt ourselves."
6) "We could buy toilet paper instead of using $2 million bills...it's too bad Bush's wars tanked our economy. We may never recover."
7) "'We had a missile defenses. Oh, God, we had a missile defense. Why did they get rid of our missile defenses? Why, oh God, why?' That's what we'd be saying if we actually had a real missile defense system instead of the pie-in-the-sky moneypit they've been wasting our taxes on since the Reagan adminiatration."

None of that was done to catch terrorists; it was done to control the population...to let these crooks loot with impunity. On the whim that average Americans would actually wake up and take back their country, they protected themselves by installing the road to tyranny.

Can't sell something you don't own. I believe the ranch and the livestock are all leased. Ya see, you can't be a good old boy and appeal to the good old boys if you don't have a ranch and some livestock.

You let the cat out of the bag. Do you who is going to be McCain's VP? Cheney! thats who and if elected he will keep on running the government and McCain can be the front man this time.

The Twenty-second Amendment to the United States Constitution, sets limits on how long a person can be president, but no limits on the VP.
 
2008-03-09 5:32:30 PM  
I think the president gets more of the blame/credit for the economy than the deserve. The telecom boom under Clinton was caused more by people overvaluing the stock and living well because of more geometric growth in what should have been linear growth. When the market corrected around the time Bush came into the White House, we also had the problems in NY and DC, which did not help the economy.

Right now we have the same problem with dependance on international oil that has plagued us since at least the Carter administration, along with a dollar that is weak and wages that do not seem to be keeping up with prices. Our international debt and annual deficits are a large source of this, the former a problem since before WWII and the latter a problem for at least the last 20 years. Clinton's administration did some creative number rearrangements to make things appear better, but no one from either party has stepped up to the plate and tried to wean us off of cheap energy and federal pork.

There are things this administration has done that I thoroughly disagree with, but in all many of our problems are bipartisan in nature and will require bipartisan cooperation to solve. It is the divisiveness, raw hatred/polarization, and failure of both sides to work together which concern me more than any one person in our government. Unless we work together to solve our common problems, we will continue to follow the same pattern and end up with the same result.

I'm not a huge fan of the guy, but don't you guys feel a little bit lame retreading this still? Sort of like the guy who keeps talking about that party he was at 3 and a half years ago, or the guy who keeps telling the one joke anyone ever laughed at.

Not defending G-dawg Dubblya, just saying the joke's eight years old, and not funny anymore. You no longer get your "enlightened minority" cred for bashing the guy all the time. Instead you get "possibly psychotic obsession" cred. It's time to 'Move On', as they say.

Cue caffeinated semi-informed political rage...

Before McCain gladly accepted Bush's endorsement, I would've laughed in your face for making a remark like that. But now I can almost see that possibility. Maybe.

Of course, if McCain's age and health is an issue, you've got about 50x that adding Cheney into the mix. If Obama gets the nom, all he'd have to do is run ads contrasting himself and his presumably young-ish, healthy running mate with the Grumpy Old Men on the right. Kennedy/Nixon all over again.

Nice, but the guy's still got a massive amount of the entire government under his and his cronies' thumbs, and he's politically going to be at their most dangerous and cornered currently. So no, it's not quite time yet.

True. I don't think Clinton deserves credit for the tech boom and overall economic recovery in the 1990s but Bush's encouragement and incentives for offshore outsourcing has helped anything either.

/tired of seeing waste and pork in government Buddy, you don't even KNOW... there are military bases around the country that are moving to change entire departments over from federal civil service to subcontracted private industry, because it's supposedly cheaper. I dunno, though. I worked Federal for about a year, and I had to do an SF-86 security clearance. Then I got RIFed, and now work for a contractor with federal contracts. No security clearance...did they think this through?
