Top 10 Worst Moments in George W. Bush's Presidency


Recently, former President George W. Bush cited rapper Kanya West calling him a racist in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina as the worst moment of his presidency. The 43rd president also told NBC's Matt Lauer that there were other rough patches in his memoir, Decision Points. But Mr. Bush also cited other bad moments during his administration in his autobiography. What were they?

  • 10) Having to buff out Dick Cheney's heel marks on the resolute desk with torn swatches of the original US Constitution.

  • 9) CIA Director George Tenet telling him after 9/11 that Osama bin Laden had hidden in Camp David for three days.

  • 8) That in July of 2003 Bob Novak was outed by the Wilsons as a GOP operative.

  • 7) The only Thursday night the White House kitchen couldn't serve pork rinds.

  • 6) That Ted Kennedy couldn't die sooner so he could tell at his funeral alcoholism jokes originally told at a Dean Martin roast 32 years ago.

  • 5) Cindy Sheehan "pissing and moaning about some dead feller named Casey" during his vacation.

  • 4) The eight temporary lobotomies he'd suffered through every time Karl "Bush's Brain" Rove went on vacation.

  • 3) Seeing the twins reach their 20's without either of them having killed a gay person.

  • 2) When Brent Scowcroft gave him on his 60th birthday a beanie with "41½ " on it.

  • 1) When a panel of historians determined by late 2008 that he'd had been less effective than William Henry Harrison, who died one month into office.

    Got a note on internal mail at the Petition Site/Care2. I thought of you in light of your 'past experiences' - though this is heavily abbreviated

    "Many of us already know that Fox News is biased -- but it's actually much worse than that. For years they have used lies, distortions, and race-baiting to divide this country. Recently, it's gotten downright dangerous. Earlier this summer, a heavily armed man got into a gun fight with police after he was pulled over on his way to kill people at two non-profit organizations[1] -- and now, in an interview from jail, he's said that Glenn Beck was a big part of his inspiration.[2]
    I've joined the TurnOffFox campaign -- the first part of a larger campaign to diminish the influence of Fox. It's about educating people about Fox and getting it turned off in stores, restaurants, and other public places.

    Will you join me? It takes just a moment to declare your own household "Fox free", and at the same time appeal to public establishments in your community to stop playing Fox. And you'll get a FREE Turn Off Fox sticker when you do. Click here:

    No other news organization that's considered legitimate consistently wages smear campaigns based on lies and race-baiting. But for years Fox News has done exactly that, and the pattern has only gotten worse since Barack Obama entered national politics.

    Mind, Media Matters and Color of Change are both in my inbox anyway. A lot of that is never attended to, however.

    Who is Opit ? I followed and blogged your posts when 'No Quarter' was trumpeting your Fox montage. Oldephartteintraining had to relocate as well for unrelated reasons...I assume..to become

    "Trumpeting"? More like reproducing the whole fucking post in full and originally not giving me attribution, which gave Tom Tomorrow and Eschaton, just to name 2 of 5 examples, to link directly to Johnson instead of me. I got a mere 33,500 hits that first day. Larry got over 150,000 and it turned "No Quarter" into an A list blog which he then turned into a fetid right wing piece of shit. Prior to that first post in my ongoing series, Johnson was getting about 1000 hits a day less than me (he told me so, that he was averaging 4000 hits a day while I was getting about 5000).

    "Trumpeting"? Oh, please. It was the most egregious example of my being given short shrift while having my ideas stolen from me without any credit. Air America and Bill Maher's people did it to me several times but what Larry Johnson did to me is something for which I will never, ever forgive him.
