If you are terrified of horses and afraid to be near them, and yet like to dress up in cowboy costumes as an adult and ride bicycles rather than horses on a former pig farm that you call a "ranch", you just might be an asshole.
If you were a cocaine-snorting, shiftless and worthless drunk until you were forty years old, and yet then begin to pontificate sanctimoniously to the entire nation about "decency and honor" and "moral character", you might just be an asshole.
If you dodged the military draft and avoided a foreign war because you were the privileged son of a Congressman, and yet like to dress up in military costumes as an adult and send hundreds of thousands of poor kids to a war that you alone started, you might just be an asshole.
If you and your brothers went from one failed and questionable business venture to another and were bailed out time and again by taxpayers and family friends, and yet have the gall to lecture a nation on economics and budgeting, you might just be an asshole.
If you and your family helped arrange for your girlfriend to have an abortion because you didn’t have the sense to use a condom when you were young, and then later wag your finger at women about the “sanctity” of life of an embryo, you might just be an asshole.
If you have the audacity to criticize our Armed Forces for helping restore order and civility to a region torn by thousands of years of ethnic strife and ridicule its success with a snarl calling it “nation building”, and yet, then later embark on a ill-advised and failed $300 Billion attempt of it yourself, you might just be an asshole.
The story I remember about military service was that after strings were pulled and W became a fighter pilot, he tried and tried to get posted to Vietnam, but the war was dying down and they didn't need him.
I find it remarkable that a construct such as religion exists as a method of redemption. Normally, you would need lots of therapy and drugs.
I would rather be led by someone who has made some mistkes than one who has made none at all.
You are a fucking moron George Bush deserves to be shot through a cannon over to Iraq and might as well send that asshole Mccain to while your at they are both worthless pieces of shit and stupid old fart Cheney
I would rather be led by someonewith an iq higher than 82, and doesnt have the childlike belief that anything he does is mandated by god.. history will not be kind to bush's presidency and nor should it be.. history is replete with petty dictators that justify breaking their own laws in the name of security...
There are mistakes, and there are mistakes. I can't be led by someone who refuses to own up to his mistakes.
As to service in Vietnam:
Mr. Bush's application for the Guard included a box to be checked specifying whether he did or did not volunteer for overseas duty. His includes a check mark in the box not wanting to volunteer for such an assignment.
I would not be the least bit concerned by what Bush did, or didn't do, as a callow youth, except for the fact that:
1) This man started a war which has killed over 2,100 Americans and he plans on staying in that war no matter how many Americans die.
2) He struts around in military jackets and flight suits like he is some kind of uber-soldier.
3) He impunes the integrity of anyone who opposes the war claming they don't support the troops, while he cuts medical care and benefits for veterans.
4) He has attacked the integrity of men who DID serve in Vietnam, including highly decorated soldiers such as Max Cleland, John Kerry, John McCain and John Murtha (and before you point out that Bush didn't PERSONALLY attack these men, his operatives (read Karl Rove) did. Bush is HEAD of the GOP and I have yet to hear him censure or fire anyone for this conduct.)
5) Bush's service records were "sanitized" and incriminating documents removed.
I COULDN'T HAVE PUT IT ANY BETTER. I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT LYING (WMD), COKEHEAD (NOT GOING TO TALK ABOUT PAST DRUG ABUSE) COWARD ( DIDN'T EVEN SHOW UP FOR GUARD DUTY) IS THE PRESIDENT OF THIS GREAT NATION. THE MISERABLE EXCUSE (W) FOR A HUMAN BEING IS A FLAT OUT JOKE. I HOPE WE SURVIVE THE NEXT THREE YEARS WHILE THIS MORON IS AT THE HELM. GOD HELP US!
Might I suggest that W has been retreating from the front? If he did not do the Military/Industrial interests' bidding, they would find someone capable. Maybe that's why Cheney is VP, in case W stumbles and must be eliminated. Of course, his NEOCON/Biblical brainwashing took and he's a true believer, something even Cheney can't manage.
To call George W Bush an asshole is not fair to other assholes. It's just not fair! I've been called an asshole and I don't appreciate being in the same category as that piece of shit. So please! Call him a piece of shit because some of my best friends are assholes. And we all know what to do with a piece of shit? We flush it!
I would sooner call George Walker Bush the Chimp President as he is no smarter than a chimpanzee and actually his facial expressions remind a person of a chimpanzee. George Walker Bush couldn't find his own Ass with his own two hands as well George Walker Bush is so F'king stupid that he couldn't even organize a piss up in a brewery. The best part of George Walker Bush ran down his fathers leg during his conception and thats why he is so F'king Dumb as well Forest Gump is 100 times smarter than the moron George Walker Bush.
