* Says - I Must Tell You, I'm Sleeping A Lot Better Than People Would Assume...
so he knows that with what he has done to this country and the world that people would say - "How Can He Sleep At Night?"

What an ass.

16. Of course, if you're demonic yourself
it might cause an instantaneous implosion.

3. Did he say that recently? It makes a difference, especially when his
'lovely' wife goes on the tube espousing how the negative reviews on Iraq are all an evil plot of the media whores that have supported him for years.

4. Wrong again Clown Boy...
I have never assumed for a single moment that Chimp has lost any sleep over the loss
of life he has been directly responsible for throughout his entire political career.

6. Tony Blair Too


http://news.independent.co.uk/uk/politics/article207613...

A devastating attack on Mr Blair's justification for military action by Carne Ross, Britain's key negotiator at the UN, has been kept under wraps until now because he was threatened with being charged with breaching the Official Secrets Act.

The Government's case for going to war in Iraq has been torn apart by the publication of previously suppressed evidence that Tony Blair lied over Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction

would, will, and do, here.

13. Nah, he doesn't know that...
He just assumes that people would think he has trouble sleeping because of all the righteous responsibility on his shoulders for saving IRAQ and doing this monumentally important task to ensure America's future. "It's hard work", says he.

It still hasn't penetrated his cocoon of ignorance that the world hates him and thinks he's an evil, imperious buffoon who's just satisfying his inferiority complex (re: daddy) and showing the world how powerful and clever the U.S. is by seeking to secure the oil and spread Democracy to the Muslims he thinks haven't a clue what wonders they've been missing (capitalism/credit-cards/Democracy and, hey, Christianity too).

I wouldn't be surprised, sincerely, to find out that * truly doesn't even know what people think about him--he ignores anything remotely "liberal" or "Democrat" out of hand, he's intellectually incurious ("InCurious George"; a baad little monkey) and doesn't read--he probably doesn't even watch the kinds of TV (other than cartoons) that might expose him to even that little bit of criticism that the media lets through their "protect/support Bush" filter. The closest he's come is asking Karl Rove, "turdblossom, how come my 'proval ratin' ain't doin' so good?". What the turd-man answered might be interesting, but was probably just some reassurance "Don't worry Sir, it's just those damn Democrats working with the Liberal Media--but we're working on it...".

George, (the Dumbass) W. Bush, is simply incapable of grasping the thought that he's done anything wrong (after all, he knows he's a Bush AND that he was appointed by God).

14. I think he finally realizes his cocoon has cracked and he isn't as
beloved as he thought. Combine that with his 'hood' who are bailing, and he is or is going to be a very lonely and scary entity. Who will 'guide' him? I can't think of one person (ok, maybe Condi) who is 'standing by their man'. It's gone quiet and numb.

19. Well, having to have daddy's men...
come solve his problems--might indicate a modest awareness that things aren't going as great as he might think they're supposed to (probably painful flashbacks to his long history of failure). Even so I expect he's going to come up with a "new direction" with is essentially "staying the course" with small tweaks.

He is not as rational as people are giving him credit for; if you listen carefully to what he says--and, to this extent, he is showing a little cleverness in that he never quite says what people think he's saying. I guess it's just that everyone expects him to be saying certain things--things that obviously would be the only reasonable option for someone in his situation--and the mere fact that he talks of and around those things, everyone is perceiving that he has actually said what they were expecting--when he didn't really. It's a skill; almost lawyerly of him--and given that much of the time he simply lies outright so much so that even if he really did say what people expect--it doesn't, in the smallest way, mean that he has any intention of doing what's been said.

Yeah, Condo will stick with him--he's the best thing that's ever happened to her. Dick's a little cold and condescending and no fun to trust and there's no more busy-minded Rummy. Gonzales is just his legal tool and so many of his neoconeheads aren't around... I think you may be right; W is probably feeling rather lonely and scared--behind the scenes--but I think he's got such a pathological "I'm right" complex that he's still unable to comprehend how badly screwed the country is. That he's been speaking of Truman and how he was vindicated in history does, however, show that he knows on some level that many people think he's been wrong (whether he grasps the magnitude of that or not--after all, his approval numbers still haven't, apparently, sunk to the twenties (or single digits where it belongs)).

It's so predictable though, that he's worried more about his "legacy" than people dying--thinking somehow that he will be proven right. It/he's insufferable. Not as beloved as he thought--he must be thinking all those people are so stupid; and that if he can't "show them", history will. He deserves a little suffering, coldness, numbness and fear--and that's at the very least.

It's the lack of real justice that's so deeply disappointing here; this President has highlighted the injustice in the world so brilliantly (and certainly not in any intentional manner) that it seems a large number of people--even here in the U.S. can see it (it's rather ubiquitous in the rest of the world). Crime and non-punishment; sounds like another appropos book title about the Bush Administration. Seems like the U.S. should become a signatory of the International Criminal Court... had we been, George really would have a cold, numb sensation creeping up his shrunken little spine.

21. I'm sure the surviving family members
of the brave American soldiers he sent to their deaths in Iraq & Afghanistan are comforted by this news. This madman needs to be impeached/convicted immediately.

22. Sociopaths always sleep well at night, no matter the horrors they
have visited upon others during the day. That's one way to tell they are sociopaths.

24. He had no problems sleeping on 9/11...
From a Ladies Home Journal Interview, done by Peggy Noonan:

President Bush: But the day ended on a relatively humorous note. The agents said, "You'll be sleeping downstairs. Washington's still a dangerous place." And I said no, I can't sleep down there, the bed didn't look comfortable. I was really tired, Laura was tired, we like our own bed. We like our own routine. You know, kind of a nester. Like the way things are. I knew I had to deal with the issue the next day and provide strength and comfort to the country, and so I needed rest in order to be mentally prepared. So I told the agent we're going upstairs, and he reluctantly said okay. Laura wears contacts, and she was sound asleep. Barney was there. And the agent comes running up and says, "We're under attack. We need you downstairs," and so there we go. I'm in my running shorts and my T-shirt, and I'm barefooted. Got the dog in one hand, Laura had a cat, I'm holding Laura --

Mrs. Bush: I don't have my contacts in, and I'm in my fuzzy house slippers --

President Bush: And this guy's out of breath, and we're heading straight down to the basement because there's an incoming unidentified airplane, which is coming toward the White House. Then the guy says it's a friendly airplane. And we hustle all the way back upstairs and go to bed.

Mrs. Bush: And we just lay there thinking about the way we must have looked.

Noonan: So the day starts in tragedy and ends in Marx Brothers.

President Bush: That's right -- we got a laugh out of it.

I live far from New York City & lost nobody on 9/11. But I didn't sleep right for weeks.

How about you?

27. Thanks for the reminder about this
Everything wrong with this cretin, his wife and the mess he's made of everything is neatly summed up in this vile little anecdote. Truly horrifying.

25. Not only is his comment callous,but it is politically stupid.
* should be telling the world he cannot sleep because of the agony and worry the world faces because of his stinking war. He should be stating that he is up nights trying to find a plan to protect and then exit our troops. Not only does he sound stupid, he sounds uncaring, I venture to guess he is both.

26. His kids aren't in Iraq.
They may have given him a sleepless night or two when they got caught partying naked down in Argentina...!

Naah, Kids will be kids. Besides, it's not like they'll ever have to get a job or anything.

29. No surprise.
I'd guess that most sociopaths have no trouble sleeping, because they have absolutely no conscience.
