Now, I pride myself on not being constrained by the thinking of the two-party system that is currently forced upon us; if someone put a gun to my head and tried to force me into one of those political boxes, I would probably lean slightly towards Republican.
Nonetheless, by any standard, George Bush is a moron. How someone with his lack of speaking ability and general ineptitude slipped through the cracks is… well, a pretty good indication of just how far this once great nation has degenerated.
It’s embarrassing really. If you think about the great history of this nation, starting from its spectacular and incredibly idealistic beginning, it’s incredible to look at how badly we’ve screwed it up in less than three short centuries. If you take a step back, it’s truly mind-boggling. Is there ANY wonder why other countries think we are so ridiculous? If you don’t think so… well, you are probably a retard.
AOL recently compiled some of soon-to-be ex-President Bush’s best “phrase mangling” as they so aptly described it. Here are some of the better ones:
Quote: “There’s an old saying in Tennessee — I know it’s in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on shame on you. Fool me you can’t get fooled again.”
The video is much better.
Quote: “Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.”
We have no doubt Mr. President.
Quote: “I can’t wait to join you in the joy of welcoming neighbors back into neighborhoods, and small businesses up and running, and cutting those ribbons that somebody is creating new jobs.”
Quote: “These are big achievements for this country, and the people of Bulgaria ought to be proud of the achievements that they have achieved.”
Quote: To the pope: “Thank you, Your Holiness. Awesome speech.”
Hahah! “Right on brotha – high-five!” Christ, what a moron…
Quote: “The fact that they purchased the machine meant somebody had to make the machine. And when somebody makes a machine, it means there’s jobs at the machine-making place.”
You can’t argue with logic…
Quote: “And they have no disregard for human life.”
Quote: “Throughout our history, the words of the Declaration have inspired immigrants from around the world to set sail to our shores. These immigrants have helped transform 13 small colonies into a great and growing nation of more than 300 people.”
America being one of the few countries to enjoy such a distinction, no doubt.
We salute you on your way out Mr. President! In some ways, you were probably America’s most honest and accurate choice as the leader of our nation. These are tough shoes to fill Mr. Obama – best of luck.
