Murderer…Misanthrope…Motivator?

BushCommas
As governor of Texas GW Bush executed more prisoners than any other governor in Texas history and United States recent history.  He never reviewed a one of them but left that process to Alberto Gonzales, his consigliere.  As president of the United States he allowed thousands of our citizens to die because of his lack of action on intelligence that said we were facing impending attack from a group known as al Qaeda.  After the attacks of 9/11 he invaded a country that had nothing to do with those attacks and then after having opened that can of worms went on to invade a country that not only had nothing to do with the attacks of September 11, but had never threatened us at all.  As a result of the invasion in Iraq, he was responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of innocent civilians and thousands of our service members.  The carnage in Iraq is still going on and the death toll in Afghanistan keeps ticking away like some macabre metronome. 

On the home front GW Bush sat by as one of our most historic and loved cities drowned and its citizens died from dehydration, exposure, lack of medical help and many other reasons when a hurricane hit.  He left that city to its own devices for days as the residents of there stood on roofs with signs pleading for help…for just water to drink.  Instead of help he sent Blackwater mercenaries to patrol the streets.

After opening the coffers and resources of our country to his corporate “base” he stood by and not only watched the biggest financial meltdown since the depression era, he actively prevented regulators from intervening.

With credentials like that, what coul he be more suited for than a motivational speaker?  The Washington Post reports:

Bush’s First Stand On A New Podium

After nine months of being nearly invisible — a big outing has been to a Dallas hardware store for flashlights — George W. Bush made his debut Monday in his latest incarnation: motivational speaker.

Nearly 15,000 people heard the former president, known more for mangling the English language than for his eloquence, reminisce about his White House days. Bush, who is writing a book about the dozen toughest decisions he had to make, used much of his 28 minutes onstage to talk about lighter topics such as picking out a rug design for the Oval Office that reflected his “optimism.”

Hmmm…what colors go well with the slaughter of innocent civilians and the wasted lives of our troops?

Looking younger than his 63 years and relaxed, Bush did not appear to have an overarching theme, but strung anecdotes and jokes together and frequently mentioned his faith in God.

“I don’t see how you can be president without relying on the Almighty. Now when I was 21, I wouldn’t have told you that, but at age 63, I can tell you that one of the most amazing surprises of the presidency was the fact that people’s prayers affected me. I can’t prove it to you. But I can tell you some days were great, some days not so great. But every day was joyous.” That, he attributed, to the prayers of others.

As our citizens jumped from the twin towers, were burned to death and crushed…as our brave troops were blown to bits by improvised explosive devices and over a hundred thousand Iraqi men, women and children died by our bombs, roving ethnic death squads unleashed by our invasion, or privation, as the people of New Orleans waded through the floating bodies…all of those were just “joyous” days in the life of GW Bush.

As citizens of New Orleans prayed for deliverance and were ignored, GW Bush was awash in prayers for his well-being which made him feel just great.  His relationship with the almighty, that sick twisted voice in his head, caused him to “smite”  Aghanistan and then Iraq.  The smiting continues yet we are no closer to victory.  But…GW is the kind of guy you want to have a beer with.   His butchering of the English language and inability to put together a sentence make him just a regular guy.  As one attendee at this circle jerk stated:

In the crowd of real estate agents in suits, housewives in jeans, students and senior citizens, Chris Clarke, 25, a salesman from Dallas, stood at the back. Like many people, he said that other speakers were better — Colin Powell was his favorite — but he thought Bush was good. In fact, he said, it could turn out that Bush may be more suited to motivational speaking than being president. He said when Bush misspeaks, it sounds “incompetent if you are president. But here it can be inspiring. It makes him seem like a regular guy, no better than me.”

Yeah, except Chris Clarke didn’t wage a war of aggression, let a United States city fend for itself, bomb women and children in his pursuit of the man he said was “Wanted Dead or Alive” nor did he nearly bankrupt our country.  GW Bush did all that and more.  And as for motivational speakers and his “hunt” for Osama bin Laden, how’s did that work out?

bushism

Yeah, pretty motivating.
