Bush's Final Days, Part 2: Shoulder Massages And Instant Nostalgia

By Manifesto Joe

One of the stated purposes of my blog is to remind everyone that Bush isn't really from Texas. Not that our bragging rights down here have ever been all that great, but it would be good for the rest of the country to know that not all genuine Texans are that dumb.

This was originally posted April 2, 2008. It's a concise reminder of how Bush, that Yale and Harvard grad with the frat-rat manners and oilfield-trash affectations, embarrassed Texas, the nation, and most of all, himself. And this was just one of many examples.

There's been a news report that German Chancellor Angela Merkel does not plan to attend the opening ceremony of the Summer Olympic Games in Beijing because of China's human rights record.

George W. Bush, the report said, plans to be there. It's my theory that Merkel isn't going to show because she doesn't want another of those shoulder massages like Bush gave her a couple of years ago at the G-8 Summit.

I wonder, did he call her Merkie-Merk? -- MJ

Yale and Harvard should both have their charters revoked just for having accepted, let alone graduating, that idiot. I know third graders who have a better command of the English language than Bush. He is an embarrassment not just to Texas, but to the entire country as well. Angela Merkel should have turned around and decked him. When I think of truly bright and gifted native-born (and even adopted) Texans over the years like Ann Richards, Molly Ivins, Lloyd Bentsen, and Sam Rayburn, Bush doesn't even belong in the same paragraph as they!

No matter how much the Democrat Party tries to cover it up, the fact is, that the Blagojevich scandal is continuing to grow, day by day. And it raises a question: What did Obama know and when did he know it?
Spin this all you want, Libs, but this scandal is NOT going away.
It appears that the Obama White House will be as scandal-tainted as Clinton's was.
Prediction: the Republicans will retake the Congress in 2010 and retake the White House in 2012. I can't wait! People are fed up with the Democrat Party's corruption.

Anon, how silly of me. Everyone knows that the Republic Party has never had one corrupt politician in its midst. Ask Ted Stevens. (And, what did Palin know, and when did she know it?)
