Could it be possibly true?

Bush Is A Can Short

Of A Six-Pack

By Jim Moore


With all his dangerous executive orders, repetitious insistence on the necessity for the Iraqi war,  monotonous clinging to the WMD fairy tale, transparent declaration of a need for spying on individuals, and irresponsible nonchalance about our national debt approaching a trillion dollars, President Bush has mistakenly taken on the mantel of liar, cheater, deceiver, dictator, even traitor.

I say mistakenly because I now believe that Bush is none of these things. Oh sure, he's a lousy president. Perhaps the worst president in American history. But I am convinced it is a totally erroneous assessment of this president to attach to him labels of purposeful harm, intentional mean-spiritedness, or inherent evil.

The contrivance that opened my mind to alternative possibilities about Bush's performance in and out of the White House came to me in a most unexpected and parochial way: namely a 2006 calendar of George W. Bushisms; each day offering inane utterances during his presidency, and not a few from before that.

After flipping a few pages of the calendar, the light dawned and I realized for the first time that President Bush is not evil, not mean, not crazy not ill-intentioned, and surely not dictatorial.

President George W. Bush is not to be blamed. He simply has a can missing from his six-pack; a screw loose. In short, Bush is an intellectual zero; a closet dunce. Whether or not this makes him dangerous depends on how far into space you believe this man's think-piece has gone. That it has gone somewhere cannot be denied.

And these quotes, taken at various times during Bush's political career, give ample and undeniable testament to this un-presidential insufficiency.

On August 30, 2000, at a CNN online chat. Bush babbled, "As governor of Texas, I have set a high standard for our public schools, and I have met those standards."  We can only hope that the children will meet the same high standards.

In St. Charles, Missouri, on November 2, 2000, Bush spouted, "They want the federal government controlling Social Security, like it's some kind of federal program."  Well, I must say, they certainly had most of us fooled.

In Washington, D.C., on August 5, 2004, Bush averred. "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 so do we."  It seems that nowadays you can't trust anybody.

On May 29, 2003, in Washington, D.C., Bush intoned, "I recently met with the finance minister of the Palestinian Authority, and I was very impressed with his grasp of finances."  Yes, but the big test is, Mr. President, can he balance his checkbook?

In Mainz, Germany, February 23, 2005, Bush mused, "After all, Europe is America's closest ally." Which proves that we at least have somebody in our corner.

On December 5, 2000, Bush brought forth this on CBS's 60 Minutes: "Dick Cheney and I do not want this nation to be in a recession. We want anybody who can find work to be able to find work." And I do too, if they can find work.

I wish to heaven I was making all this up. I would be having fun at President Bush's expense, but I'm confident that he would see the humor in it and laugh just as hard as I am laughing. Too bad. Every quote you read hear, I swear, is authentic Bushbabble, all of which the man himself is grossly unaware.

As a young man, Jim Moore never had the opportunity to go to college.  He had to get out, get a job, and go to work. Too bad President Bush can't say the same thing.

But I digress.

Speaking to Paula Zahn about Rudy Giuliani, Bush said: "He has certainly earned the reputation as a fantastic mayor, because the results speak for themselves. I mean, New York's a safer place for him to be."  Who knows, it may even be safer for the rest of us.

Acknowledging something that the whole world already suspects, Bush, on May 7, 2003, divulged this: "I think war is a dangerous place." Revelations like this are not easy to come by.

  And this: In Brussels, Belgium, on February 22, 2005, our esteemed leader had this to say: "This notion that the United States is getting ready to attack Iran is simply ridiculous. And having said that, all options are on the table."

Finally, as Yogi Berra might have thought long and hard about it, then offered this: "You really don't know a man until you get to know him."

Anybody seen that missing can?

i've held to the belief for a while that Bushie is not evil or manipulative or lying, etc etc but that rather he is a simpleton who honestly believes God is talking to him and approves of every idea he has.

he's better suited to small-village politics (he'd be great as the owner of a local grocery store and village councilman, plus church deacon) but is out of his league in world politics.

the man is sincere, he's just 2 sandwiches short of a picnic and really believes that it will stop raining so he heads on his merry way anyway.

Bill Clinton looks better and better everyday.

Actually, a few weeks ago I was flipping channels and saw an interview with Clinton about general world politics.  More obscure stuff, not the war, etc, and not something that you expect someone to speak extemporaneously.

I was immediatly taken in by his thoughtful and in depth replies, the clarity of his speach and the ease with which he spoke.

What a pleasure to listen to a president who could speak in whole sentences and convey a complete thought.
