El Presidente

El Presidente Jorge Bushto gave a sit down interview (to some journalists!) on Air Force One...this past Friday. Dude was wearing a semi-miltary looking Air Force One jacket while doing so.

The headline from the Washington Post?

"Bush Says Election Ratified Iraq Policy"

What 'chu talkin' 'bout, Willis?
President Bush said the public's decision to reelect him was a ratification of his approach toward Iraq and that there was no reason to hold any administration officials accountable for mistakes or misjudgments in prewar planning or managing the violent aftermath.

"We had an accountability moment, and that's called the 2004 elections," Bush said in an interview with The Washington Post. "The American people listened to different assessments made about what was taking place in Iraq, and they looked at the two candidates, and chose me."
And that, my friends, is a perfect example...of an alcoholic brain...hard at work. Straight-up, 12-step stuff. Our Kid is in complete DENIAL about the reality of the situation in Iraq, and still trying to JUSTIFY his behavior re: the war.

Strangely, the "American people" have become Bush's ENABLERS by sending him back to DC. (Trust me, he sees them like an alcoholic would: as people who understand that he does not have a problem.)


Let me put it this way - the alcoholic mind will go to great lengths to justify it's own destructive, alcholic behavior, and will come up with elaborate excuses to do so. Egs; Hey, it was my friend's wedding, I've been under a lot of stress lately, I'm in so much pain because of my last operation, it was happy hour, blah blah blah. For the most part, alcoholics will only face accountability moments...after great disaster.

Nes pa? Onward.

Osama bin Laden came up during the sit-down on AF1. Check out this next excerpt. It's very wordy - methinks to hide Bush's response.
As for perhaps the most notorious terrorist, Osama bin Laden, the administration has so far been unsuccessful in its attempt to locate the mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. Asked why, Bush said, "Because he's hiding."
Because he's hiding.

Okay then. Good enough for me.

(Feel free to rewrite that little excerpt in your own head. Here's mine; "Bush was then asked why Bin Laden had not been captured...despite the billions of dollars spent to that end. His response? "Because he's hiding.")

The Washington Post article ends with this little gem:
On the election Bush said he was puzzled that he received only about 11 percent of the black vote, according to exit polls, about a 2 percentage point increase over his 2000 total.

"I did my best to reach out, and I will continue to do so as the president," Bush said. "It's important for people to know that I'm the president of everybody."
Actually, I think it's important for BUSH to know that he's the president of everybody.

But, hey, that's just me.

More later...
