Ladies and Gentlemen, the President of the United States

GROAN. How much longer until this guy finally goes away?

C'mon, you can do better than that!

If you want to complain about Bush, there is plenty to do so about, but to pick on a silly photo-op is being picayune.

Ok, Wolf. I'm up for the challenge.
After nearly 8 years in office, George Bush is responsible for:
- the death of 4,000 American soldiers in Iraq.
- unproductive wars in Iraq and Afghanistan that have NOT accomplished their stated objectives, but have cost the US billions of dollars
- complete failure to capture Osama bin Laden and destroy Al-Quaeda
- the Patriot Act, which has been used and misused to justify violations of the First and Fourteenth Amendments
- making the United States one of the most hated countries in the world
- heading the most arrogant, secretive, power-abusing administration since Richard Nixon's.
- making us look at Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, and Karl Rove on the news every night (all of whose faces I really can't stand to look at)
- sending Condoleeza Rice again and again to put pressure on Israel to make "peace" with homicidial maniacs who are intent on destroying them
- having the lowest IQ of any U.S. President in history (and no, I can't prove that, but c'mon, it just HAS TO be true)
- hugging the Easter Bunny, who isn't real (but I'll bet that Bush doesn't know that)

And no fair throwing a word like "picayune" at me- I had to go look it up. (-:

SuperRaizy,

You may have missed my point. I *agree* that there is plenty about George Bush with which to say "when will he go away?" I just thought that picking on a photo-op instead of going with real issues that make a difference was picayune.

Ugh! Was there English in my last post? I could have worded that much better... but you get my point. :)

Wolf-
I get your point.
Different styles, I guess.

I thought it was spelled p-i-k-y-u-n-y.

And I thought Bush looked cute.

BrooklynWolf said...

Not a problem. I sometimes go overboard on the analytics and don't think through the emotion. :)

great pic! what event was it from?

SuperRaizy said...

rafi-
That's the Easter Bunny he's hugging. Easter was on Sunday, and the picture is from the White House Easter egg hunt.

The Easter Bunny? I thought it was Laura Bush dressed up in her Purim Costume to visit the Jewish Republican's club!!!

having the lowest IQ of any U.S. President in history (and no, I can't prove that, but c'mon, it just HAS TO be true)

That is immaterial.

jack-
not to me, it isn't.
