Oh, the Inanity!
This is the "banned" George W. Bush video that the White House would love for you not to see.
At a fundraiser for professional Republican scumbag Pete Olson (who's running against Nick Lampson in Tom DeLay's old 22nd district and is only separated by 3 degrees from the biggest Republican scumbags in our day and age), George W. Bush ordered all cameras to be turned off. Miya Shay of ABC decided he was too much of a lame duck to listen to and that when Republicans insist that all recording devices be shut off some major assclownery is afoot. Hence, this video was secretly recorded.
Oh, the humanity. Oh, the inanity.
Bush talks about Wall Street getting drunk and suffering a hangover, as if it's all about his buddies and not the homeowners victimized by them, those who really are suffering through this "hangover."
Then it gets better when Bush reveals how seriously he takes the housing crisis. Yep, about as seriously as he took Katrina. About as seriously as he took 9/11 when he sat in that little chair for 7 minutes. About as seriously as he took bin Laden less than 6 months after 9/11.
About as seriously as he took torture and the NSA's warrantless wiretapping. About as seriously as he's taking skyrocketing oil and gas prices and his losing "romantic" war in Afghanistan.
Which is to say not at all.
Here's what George W. Bush takes seriously:
The evils of gay marriage and of stem cell research. Abstinence programs. Making lots and lots of money for himself and his buddies in the military industrial complex. Covering his ass. Turning Social Security into a massive crap shoot on Wall Street to further bloat his buddies in the corporate sector. Chasing phantom nukes and other WMD's.
This is a man who sees flies before his eyes and imagines he sees dragons. He sees dragons and believes they're flies. Every day this man and Dick Cheney has been permitted to live is an indictment against the American people who have willingly abdicated their rights, their quality of life, their democracy, their reputation abroad for a dictatorship that's far worse than al Qaida ever dreamed.
2.5 million people being foreclosured on this year? Fun fodder for Republicans who can still afford to buy a new house despite already owning multimillion dollar homes.
Why is this man still alive?
