Farewell Suckers

Before George W. Bush (Bush) was elected as President of the United States for the first time, my father (miss his insight) said to me and Wahid “Mark my words, if he is elected there will be a war within a year because he has the looks of a man that needs to prove something to his father; he will go in and finish the war his father started.”

I from the first hated his swagger, arrogance and that stupid smirk on his face. Mind you I am a Canadian who always wants an American democrat to win. Like most Canadians (I think) I am not very interested in Canadian elections (we have Harper who I hate) but I am very interested in American elections.

One of my son-in-laws (Charlton) said that Canadians vote for the political party and Americans vote for the person. I think that is correct. For example in Canada we don’t even know what religion our Prime Minister practices, while in the States (even though they still say separation of church and state) they do know what religion their President practices and where he practices it. In Canada that appears to be a non-issue. I personally don’t care if someone has a faith or not; for me it is can you do the job and represent what your citizens want.

I guess I am also very interested in American politics because I love American people. They are my people too. I have been to almost every State and I love the place and the people. Personally I think the majority are amazing.

I am so long-winded; I had no intention of writing all of the above, because the focus of this post is to talk about Bush’s farewell speech that will be held sometime this evening.

Presidential farewell speeches date back to George Washington and will continue tonight with Bush. When you are watching tonight please do not feel sorry for this imbecile while he stumbles and squirms and shows his stupid grin. He is the village idiot, but not the one who wouldn’t hurt a fly, that is not the role he has been playing. He has been the most powerful man in the world and people have been stomped-out under the heel of his cowboy boot.

During the eight years between Bush’s ascension to his ignominious exit have been marked by two wars (thousands of dead and injured), Guantanamo prison camp, Hurricane Katrina, Abu Gharib prison, torture, financial chaos and overall instability worldwide.

Bush a.k.a the Worst President Ever made very good use of the television during his eight year term. Basically he never used it, as people may have found out just what a fool he is. He rarely talked to the press and I think that may have been because they might have asked him to spell cat. Then he may have sounded like the man he is, a man completely unqualified to be President of the United States.

He is leaving office with his soulless sidekick dead eyed dickless Dick and for millions of people around the world it cannot come soon enough. The only thing more I want to hear about those two bastards again is that they are being charged with crimes against humanity.

Quotes from an idiot:

Too many good docs are getting out of the business. Too many OB/GYNs aren’t able to practice their love with women all across the country. – Poplar Bluff, Mo., 09/06/04

I’m the decider, and I decide what is best. And what’s best is for Don Rumsfeld to remain as the secretary of defense. – Washington, D.C., 04/18/06

See in my line of work you got to keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth to sink in, to kind of catapult the propaganda. – Greece, N.Y., 05/24/05

There’s an old saying in Tennessee – I know it’s in Texas, probably in Tennessee – that says, fool me once, shame on – shame on you. Fool me – you can’t get fooled again. -- Nashville, Tenn., 09/17/02

We’ll let our friends be the peacekeepers and the great country called America will be the pacemakers. – Houston, Tex., 09/06/00

People say, ‘How can I help on this war against terror? How can I fight evil?’ You can do so by mentoring a child; by going into a shut-in’s house and say I love you. – Washington, D.C. 09/19/02

You know, when I campaigned here in 2000, I said, I want to be a war president. No president wants to be a war president, but I am one. – Des Moines, Iowa, 10/26/06

I’ll be long gone before some smart person ever figures out what happened inside this Oval Office. – Washington, D.C., 05/12/08

Gak! It was a scary time, wasn't it? His stupidity was/is almost beyond belief.

Hi Renee, Oh I have a mystery winner, really intriguing to find the identity. Nice try! Funny, lol!
Uk news here is saying that Toni Blair is Bush's puppet.
So far I like Gordon Brown. He seems to have good morals and understanding.

Hi, Renee; I followed you back to your blog from Maithri’s blog.

I believe that your son-in-law is right. Although I vote for the party and their platform, I believe that the majority of U.S voters are hooked in to “the cult of personality” in the same way they follow movie stars and musicians. That’s a shame.

I celebrate the departure of George W. I could list the reasons, but I’ll save those for my own blog. I only wish that W. and Cheney could be tried here for war crimes, profiteering, and (perhaps) treason.

Thanks for your post. I always find it refreshing to encounter a blogger who shares my perspective.

Hi Renee
This is my first stop over to your post and you are a firecracker of the first/best order.
Thanks for your insight and 'tell- it-like-it-is' style.

I appreciate your comment regarding your art therapy experience and I wish you only the best with all that is on your plate.

What I offer 'round the wheel is an earth calendar rhythm for moving through our days...a more relaxed lunar rhythm rather than the solar frenzy we're accustomed to...not art therapy.
take good care.

Hi Renee. Yes it is time for change and hopefully down the road things will be better for everyone. Yes Renee, yaya is gone for a little while, she will be back soon I hope. I miss my buddy. You have a great evening. Thx for your nice comments on my blog.

Hi, Renee! Had to stop by and let you know I'm back online. Our 'puter was in the shop. It seemed like forever! Glad to be back to enjoy your posts and perspectives. You have such a refreshing way of expressing yourself. I will be visiting often.

Ah hahaha I heart those quotes... what a dumbarse. When I get back from lunch I am so spending the afternoon googling Bush's "witticisms" (see also Prince Phillip for another hilarious sufferer of foot-in-mouth-itus).

Oh gawd this is such a painfully hilarious post! Thanks for not holding all americans responsible for these past eight years of horror- why he was not impeached I don't know- if anyone ever needed a bj...Anyway, Love your blog- love this post! Goodbye georgie nightmare!

Rima said...

Hello Renee.. thanks for visiting me at the Hermitage :) Glad you liked what you found there... re this post.. I agree completely.. what a marvellous thing it is that he has gone.
All bests to you

Suzanne said...

Thank God for Maithri's blog because it lead me to you.

Amen baby!!! I never voted for the idiot and hubby and I were certain that what happened would happen. The man's a moron and those who voted for him and couldn't see it are morons. It has been a painful, pathetic 8 years and honestly, I don't know how this country or the world will ever recover from this tragedy. Not in my lifetime at least.

Terrific post and an amazing blog. I'll come back and read more when I have time. I'm going to send some friends here as well. They aren't friends who know about or who visit Maithri, so good luck baby!!! They're political, thoughtful, smart, often snarky and write really, really well. Have fun!

My thoughts will be with you every day. Hang in there honey. Honestly, I mean that. And when you have a chance, who's the artist responsible for the beautiful image that graces the top of your blog. I'm an artist, so notice stuff like that! I painted a woman sitting in almost that exact pose well over a decade ago. What a small world.

Stay strong and keep writing!!!

XO Suzy

Hi Renee, you have recieved a Kreativ blog award.

it was obvious Bush came to finish his father's buisness; i said the exact thing you quote from your father.

I always saw little Bush as a child wanting to prove to daddy that he "could", all that twitching...

Obama really bought the election, he just spent ten times more money and made himself a living emotional connection to Lincoln and Kennedy and JFK, lets see what he does in this huge, huge mess.

First off let me tell I am hoping that you find your way and thatlove will heal your body. I will keep you in mind and in my prayers.

Secondly, I love your distaste for what we have endured, and you are right he wanted the war his father couldn't have. As much as I would like to think most Americans are well informed and know what they are doing, I don't.

But this is a great post. I found your site from the soaring impulse. I am glad to see you found him as well.

Well wishes to you.

Laura said...

May we learn our lesson: if he looks stupid and talks stupid, he is stupid.

May Obama have a mother's desire to end war, not a father's to begin war.

We're free at last! I cant believe it took eight years....there is such a feeling of hope for us down south of you in the old US of A. I hope he didnt let the white house door knob hit him in the..... on his way out ;)

I wonder how he can hold his head up he should be ashamed.
