I am convinced that George Bush could get away with anything. He could murder Nancy Pelosi with his bare hands on the steps of the capital on nation television, and he'd get away with it. Hey could be photographed smoking a joint with Osama bin Laden in the Rose Garden and the picture could be printed on the front page of every newspaper from D.C. to Dubai and he'd get away with it. Because, by the end of the day, Brit Hume and Sean Hannity will have saved his ass and Rush Limbaugh will chime in, insisting that it's Bill Clinton's fault.
It's funny really. Everything that Bush has done that has turned out bad, is actually the fault of someone else.
Abu Ghraib is all the fault of a few bad apples, despite the fact that we instructed them to torture the living shit out of inmates. 9/11 happened on Dubya's watch, but is actually all Bill Clinton's fault. The same can be said for the deficit.
People say Gerald Ford was the excuse me president, well George Bush is the excuse president. Not once has he taken responsibility for something. Yet, he is seen as a strong leader! How the hell does that work?
I think he should make it a personal goal to, at one point or another, take responsibility for one of his actions. Why doesn't he admit that he was AWOL during Vietnam? Nobody cared a year ago, so why would people care four years from now? If he where a really ambitious, he would confess that his ruthless spending is why we have a deficit that will take generations to patch. Anything! He should just be an adult for once and take the blame for anything!
It must be nice knowing that, whatever you do, it will always be the fault of someone else. Sorry I totaled your car, but it's not my fault, it was the guy in front of me.
