Bush, Bush, Bush.
You stupid bastard.
Here's the thing.
Bush didn't have the votes in the Senate to confirm John Bolton as our United Nations Ambassador, so he waited till their August break and shoved him down our collective throats.
Bolton was greeted on his first day on the job by a booing sidewalk crowd.
Bush said he had to do it because it's such a crucial time- we are in a war, he said.
We are in a war?
I thought Bush said we had prevailed and the war was over, when he stood on that aircraft carrier so long ago under the MISSION ACCOMPLISHED banner.
Okay, so now he admits the war is still on. Someone must have mentioned it to him.
So, why on Earth would he appoint a guy who openly hates the UN almost as much as his former colleagues and employees hated him?
With Bush's arrogance and unilateral aggression causing so much hatred of America throughout the world, isn't this sort of a good time to get the concept of "united nations"?
Bush said doesn't read newspapers or pay attention to polls.
Maybe he should.
He apparently has no clue that American news leaks out all over the world, and that 190 other U.N. delegates know that Bush selected to represent our interests a total bully of a prick who hates the very idea of the UN's existence.
Gee, do you think Bolton will suddenly charm his fellow delegates and create a more favorable image of Americans within the UN? Do you think he can force his will on other delegates who knew he was a prick before he even took his seat?
And what does Bush do after he sticks us with Bolton?
He goes back to Crawford for a month long vacation. This is his 50th trip to Crawford in the last five years.
What American president has ever goofed off this much?
Or is he just hiding in a place where the media can't get to him and question him about his secretive, inexperienced nominee for the Supreme Court?
His office said he planned to host many foreign leaders at the "ranch" this month.
He may host some of his buddies from Saudi Arabia, but you can be damn sure he's not going to be barbecuing for anyone he doesn't already consider a friend. Besides, even if he had a shred of diplomacy, who the hell would want to spend even a weekend in Crawford at the hottest time of the year? Crawford in August is a snake-infested sauna, with nothing to do. The nearest town is notoriously homely Waco, which doesn't even offer decent Tex Mex food.
And where is Cheney? Is he in his secure bunker, hiding too?
Who the hell is running things in Washington? Are we no longer on red/orange/yellow alert of some kind?
Bush just doesn't give a damn.
He doesn't care what we think of him or what he does.
He's the worst president in history, because he just doesn't get it.
And he never will.
