Jambo's Favories

"What she said", "She nails it", and every other blog cliché.

Posted by: Jambo / 6:08 PM

I've always avoided using the phrase "Best. Post. Ever." but if I were to use it this might be the time. A more thorough takedown of the dull witted shrub that is the current president I have not seen. And here's a blog phrase I don't mind using, read the whole thing. Yes it's a bit long but every single line is worth reading.

Bush doesn't know you disagree with him. Nothing about you makes you of interest to George W. Bush once you no longer agree with and support him. No degree of relationship (father, mother, etc.), no longstanding friendly intercourse (Jack Abramoff), no degree of expertise (Brent Scowcroft), no essential importance (Tony Blair, American voters) makes any difference. There is nothing you have to offer that makes Bush want to know you once you have come to disagree with him. Your opinions and feelings now exist in a world entirely external to the mind of George W. Bush. You are now just one of those "polls" that he pays no attention to. When you were on his side, you thought that showed "integrity" on his part. It doesn't. It shows an absolute inability to learn from experience.

...

Bush does what he feels like doing and he deeply resents being told, even politely, that he ought to do anything else. This is called a "sense of entitlement". Bush is a man who has never been anywhere and never done anything, and yet he has been flattered and cajoled into being president of the United States through his connections, all of whom thought they could use him for their own purposes.

...

What we have today is the natural and inevitable outcome of ideas and policies you have promoted for the last generation. I once knew a guy who was still a Marxist in 1980. Whenever I asked him why Communism had failed in Russia and China, he said "Mistakes were made". He could not believe that Marxism itself was at fault, just as you cannot believe that the ideology of the unregulated free market has created the world we live in today.

That is a nice insight into Bush's mentality.

In regards to that paragraph about the Marxist, I remember my political ideology professor lecturing on Marx. "The man had absolutely no understanding of human nature."
