7. for me, that stands as the most infuriating Bush moment
and that's saying something. Leave it to that arrogant little monkeyboy to use the occasion of his election "victory", not to exhibit even a tiny bit of graciousness, but to basically tell everyone who didn't vote for him to fuck off. Leave it to him to be a sore winner, to boast threateningly of how his agenda was now a done deal regardless of the fact that more than half of the public didn't support it (shoshecurity reform.)

He was feeling so cocky he thought it was okay to show his true viciousness and power lust. To reveal that his so-called leadership qualities could be summed up in the phrase "I do as I please."

15. Yes, that statement and the arrogance
by which was delivered infuriated me as well. He came across as a vengeful little prick who saw himself as ruler of the world.

16. His capital has been downgraded to junkbonds.

So much for his political port folio. He's looking at a cash call he can't meet.


Maybe if he would attend to business instead of doing this
