President Bush is just a figure head...
They tell him what to say and what to do. He is a member of the inner circle because they put him there. You can tell he really has no idea what to say or do once he gets off the script. If you look into his eyes he looks totally lost and out of touch with those around him.

1. I agree.
He is just smart enough to follow directions and believe them when they tell him "you're the boss." Yet blind enough to not fully realize what a puppet he is, nor exactly how they pull his strings.

I've often thought that, should their house of cards come crashing down, that I'll almost feel sorry for how they set him up to take all the blame. Almost.

anyone who looks into bush's permanently vacant gaze better realize he is being controlled. i doubt he would be able to succssfully step out of his copter otherwise.

He's a twit on many levels, but he has many personal qualities that have shaped his Presidency.

  • He must always be right, no matter how wrong he may be
  • He thrives on punishing his enemies, real or imagined
  • He prizes loyalty above any other character trait
  • He has no respect for the truth -- Perception = Reality

    7. Who?
    Who do you think is controlling him? Or is it more than one person.

    10. But that makes him no less culpable
    than his handlers, for the train wreck that is his administration.
