George Bush's Real Reason for Running for President
This is a short clip of George Bush speaking to another CBS sock puppet at (appropriately enough) the Hoover Center. Bush says that he no longer desires "fame and power." Now there's nothing left to this walking, soulless husk but a reflexive desire to make millions of dollars spewing bullshit and lies before adoring right wing audiences and for books he never even wrote.
This was Bush's entire rationale for running for the White House: Fame and power, the exact wrong reasons to run for any elected office, especially the presidency. Had anyone accused Bush in 2000 of running for President out of a maniacal desire for fame and power, he would've barred them from the campaign trail and probably would've had a piano wire-gripping Karl Rove or G. Gordon Liddy come up behind him in a dark alley.
So to you Moms and Dads out there, before you try to teach your kids that crime doesn't pay, just remember they may find this and a million other videos of this cretin, Cheney, Rove and Rumsfeld, whereupon you'll have to explain to them how crime doesn't pay. Because not only does it pay, it pays stock dividends, a hell of a pension, a huge stipend for staff and franking privileges and even enjoys Secret Service protection.
