Dubya Speaks

It's About Time

I have no idea how much screeching is going on in Idiotworld because I don't go there, but I'm sure it's reaching a fever pitch since President George W. Bush had the unmitigated gall to make a speech, answer questions and just generally hide behind the First Amendment last night in front of a crowd of rightwing nutjobs.
Repeatedly in his hourlong speech and question-and-answer session, Bush said he would not directly criticize the new president, who has moved to take over financial institutions and several large corporations, the paper reported. Several times, however, he took direct aim at Obama policies as he defended his own during eight years in office.

"Government does not create wealth. The major role for the government is to create an environment where people take risks to expand the job rate in the United States," the Times quoted him as saying to huge cheers.

Bush weighed in on some of the most pressing issues of the day: the election in Iran, the closing of the Guantanamo Bay detention center in Cuba, and his administration's interrogation policies of terrorists held there and elsewhere. The former president has not commented on Obama's decision to ban "enhanced interrogation techniques" such as waterboarding, which the current president has called "off course" and "based on fear."

"The way I decided to address the problem was twofold: One, use every technique and tool within the law to bring terrorists to justice before they strike again," the newspaper quoted him as saying, adding that the country needs to remain on offense.

"I told you I'm not going to criticize my successor," Bush said. "I'll just tell you that there are people at Gitmo that will kill American people at a drop of a hat and I don't believe that persuasion is going to work. Therapy isn't going to cause terrorists to change their mind."
One anticipates the usual passel of leftist idiots, perhaps including even president Hussein Cajones Himself, complaining that Dubya has violated the custom of remaining respectfully silent on his successor's time in office, a custom repeatedly broken by modern Democrats Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and most ridiculously and dishonestly Algore (who, sort of like John F'n Kerry, got served but in Florida not Vietnam), and assiduously observed by every Republican President since God knows when.

And now that Bush is expressing himself, I'm sure Obama's thin skin will force he of the Gigantic Cajones to cry foul, even louder and more pointedly than his mouthpiece Robert Gibbs already has- because Bama just can't stand criticism. He has every major MSM outlet bowing and scraping at his feet like a zillion frothing Brian Williamseseses and grovelling for every sacred drop of his precious lovin', and Michelle's little baby still whines about FOX, whose roster is loaded with suckers like Beckel, Williams, Colmes, Smith and several frequent guests, but also features something the rest of the MSM lacks completely: honest critics with quality air time, air time they have earned by being honest with their viewers.

I hope Bush gets all over Obama using Gigantic Hussein Cajones' own favorite and most transparent device, the pre-trash disclaimer followed by the trash.

"I have no intention of litigating president Obama's time in office so far or criticizing his policies. But I will say this...nnnduhhhhhh."
