Did Shrub just do a shout out to Texas???
:wtf:

Dude, you are NOT a rock star, this is not an acceptance speech.

I can't believe he just HAD to find a way to acknowledge Texas, and make a little jab at the fact that he was TAKEN from his illustrious vacation.

Such a royal, fuckin' asshat!

:mad: :grr:

3. Oh, I know--what about him saying he FLEW over the scene...
Just kind of added to his very obvious 'hands off' attitude toward all of this.

We need an asshat smiley desperately...

21. He Flew Over New Orleans IN AIR FORCE ONE... At THIRTY-THOUSAND FEET!!!
That's NOT the same thing as taking a helicopter tour of the area and seeing the devastation up-close. If he was too high up to be able to read stop-signs, then he was TOO HIGH UP to get a feel for how horrible the scene really is.

22. I'm promoting him to ass-clown...
I can't believe him sometimes. Then I get angry at myself for expecting just a little bit more than he and his boys are capable of.

Was it Rumsfeld that was standing next to him, practically grinning during the speech?

2. Yes he did. It was shameful. A NO kid said "He ain't president no more."
He's a N.O. refugee and was asked, "What did you think of the presidents's address?"

"He ain't president no more! President Bush don't know what he's doin!"

27. Saw a guy in my office building today...
wearing a black "He's not MY President" t-shirt... I was surprised to see that in those environs, must have been a visitor. As I passed him, I said "he's not my president either..."

28. Oddly, seeing stuff like that comforts me.
Makes me feel less alone, if that makes sense.

I love the occasional original t-shirt, bumper sticker, bracelet wearer, etc. They give me a weird sense of hope... So goofy of me to derive a sense of hope from a slogan on a shirt. LOL!

6. I'm sorry ((Texasgal)), I wish I could...but it's true
He was starting the speech. It was clear he didn't know what to say--maybe whoever was pitching him the speech in his earpiece wasn't quite ready, but he seemed like he had no idea what to say.

Then out of the blue, he says something to the affect of,"I'd like to acknowledge the great state of Texas--and the great work they did at the Superdome. Texas,is doing great things with the Astrodome blah, blah...Gotta thank Texas..."

Not shittin' you.

Then I just saw the Gov. of Texas saying,"Such a blessing that this thing didn't hit Houston!"

:wtf: Of course it's a blessing it didn't--but did it have to be SAID? Isn't that a bit callous toward those it DID hit?

No offense to Texas, but he sounded like he had asshat tendencies...

11. We all know to hold him seperate.
Not all the people from Texas are like him. There are good people there!

:hug: :pals:

I'm sorry, Texasgal--It must be awful to see a representative of your home be so, so,....well you know. No words to describe it. My heart goes out to you. Hang in there--he's totally digging his grave these days.

14. God... I hope so...
I HATE it when he mentions Texas...like it's some runaway cowboy state.

Truth be known... he's going DOWN.... FAST.

Uggg.... we're not all rednecks.. just some of us! :hi:

Thanks for your support! :hugs:

18. You are so right--I agree that he is going down FAST
No one was fooled by that little 'pep talk.' We all know he could give less than half of a damn about the people of NOLA. He's as transparent as he is stupid.

A got fucked in favor of B
B got blessed
A is no better than B
B was lucky
There was no moment where GAWHD-AH said "OH SHIT, It's headed for TEXAS", and suddenly started doing body language towards the right like an amateur bowler.

23. LMAO--that;'s a hysterically funny visual you created...
:rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Gawhd, totally panicking trying to get it to go the other way.
:rofl:

Because of course, the people of NOLA are so Gawd-less they deserve the wrath and ferocity of mother nature's fury. :eyes: What-fuckin-ever!

Edited on Wed Aug-31-05 05:08 PM by Justitia
to the rest of the nation. Bush has apparently pissed on everyone's shoes yet again.

And Perry??? Everytime he opens his mouth I want to put my fist in it.

8. We love Texas. We despise Bu$h. He can burn in hell.
My husband's family survived the storm up in Lacombe near Slidell.
We just heard from them on Tuesday via a ham radio message.

He's a native of New Orleans and I used to have family there and in Orange Beach, AL. We are heartsick. :cry:

15. (((CottonBear))))
I'm so glad that you heard from your husband's family and they are safe.

I hope any of your other relatives are found to be safe as well.

:hug:

You keep right on loving your state. It needs the love of good people to keep the losers like * at bay, and out of your govt.

13. I know you didn't mean to,
but you just made me laugh :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Everytime I saw Perry today, I thought (and even said to my dh), someone out to sock that guy...

LOL!

I truly know how the Dixie Chicks felt all those years ago, when * started the war...

12. oh, I guess I completely missed that ... what a pity
I was away from the TV, giving blood, when he finally decided to trot out in front of the cameras for his big "reassurance speech".

16. You didn't miss much--he looks sun burned,
and rather pissy that his vacation was cut short. :nopity:

Thank you for giving blood!
:applause: You rock!

19. He misspoke, as usual.
He was going to do a shout out to Louisiana, but he forgot what state he was in.

State of Confusion.

Edited on Wed Aug-31-05 08:17 PM by bliss_eternal
How rude of nature and god to have created this pesky storm, destroying hundreds of homes and people in it's path. What were we thinking expecting him to address the nation?

Quick, someone send that man BACK to his ranch so he can finish working on his tan.

29. When it was over, the commentators kinda just sat there
wonderin' why they had given up air time to a guy who just rehased all the news of the last two days...

Kinda like a kid who does a book report and just kinda menaders through the plot....

Adds nothin' to anything....
