Bush ‘We’re Kicking Ass’ Comment Reinforces his Arrogance and Stupidity…
“The security situation is changing,” Bush told reporters during a recent surprise visit to Iraq. “There’s more work to be done. But reconciliation is taking place.”
But according to the Sydney Morning Herald of Australia, the president was a bit more crude in his assessment to Australia Deputy Prime Minister Mark Vaile.
“We’re kicking ass,” Bush said to Vaile Tuesday, according the Herald, after the deputy prime minister inquired about his trip to Iraq.
On Thursday, White House spokeswoman Dana Perino would not confirm or deny the reported comment. Too bad Tony is gone, he would have spun the comment into a biblical chant.
For those of us paying attention, this isn’t the first blunt comment Bush was overheard making to a world leader. At last year’s G8 summit, a live microphone picked up the president telling then-British Prime Minister Tony Blair that the United Nations needs to “get Syria to get Hezbollah to stop doing this shit.”
You can take Bush away from the cowboys, but you just can’t take the cowboy out of Bush.
Our troops certainly have had successes in Iraq, however Bush’s draconian and short-sighted policies are directly to blame for the thousands of dead and wounded that were sent there because of chronic stupidity on the part of his entire administration. And let’s not forgot the Iraq citizens–who Bush seems to conveniently overlook – hundreds of thousands dead and wounded, millions displaced, sectarian violence that is reminiscent of the fall of Rome, etc. If shattered childhoods, chaos, and murder are “kicking ass” then Bush is doing a spendid job by all accounts.
Maybe we could use another measuring stick…Bin Laden killed 2,752 Americans, and Sadaam Hussein killed 122 Americans from the first Iraq invasion.
Bush killed 3,734 Americans and still isn’t done. Doing more to kill Americans than bin Laden and Hussein together must make Bush proud. Pity he isn’t as good at killing bin Laden. But then again, he knew he wasn’t in Iraq for Bin Laden when he decided to crush the will of the Iraqi people. Was it all to see how exciting it would be to get to play commander-in-chief of a fully unleashed American military campaign Mr. Bush? Or was it to prove that soft-in-the-middle Republicans, who have never wanted for anything in their lives, can fake being John Wayne as good as the next knucklehead? I’m not sure and at this point it really doesn’t matter.
To see this weasel-like coward, who never so much as served one second in uniform in a combat zone, arrogantly take credit for the hard sacrifices of U.S. troops and their families, makes me want to kick his ass or maybe a kick to the balls would be more to the point. He’s not fit to tie the combat boots of the common soldier much less comment on.
It astonishes me what a misguided simpleton we have as president. His pool hall comment frames his lack of intelligence and underscores why the entire globe can’t stand us as a culture. He is a disgrace and an embarassment to the oval office. I’m counting the days until he disappears into the polluted Texas sunset.
