Does Bush watch TV?? During the Katrina deal...he claims he never saw the
Edited on Fri Mar-10-06 01:37 PM by opihimoimoi
reports...

What does the dude watch? Cartoons? Reruns? Old Cowboy movies?

The Science Channel, the History Channel, the latest Innovative gadgets Channel, the Travel Channel, etc, ....all are available to him...

I see no evidence he watches serious shit...for him, its all about being self centered..just watch him answer off the cuff questions...he reveals a brain severely comped by Ignorance...the man donnu shit.
He doesn't display any skills whatsoever...just listen to the answers he gives...a pile of crap..seems to be telling us what we know already....ever watch him hammer a nail? build something? Plan anything of merit? Nope. He don't even delegate well, most of his appointments have been horrendous.

He has no vision for the American Peeps, nada, zilch, nai, zero, puka, nothing Poz dats fer sure

Come, we are in the last days of greatness...might as well go drink, eat, laugh, while we can...

9. It was amazing they even alluded to that...The Biggest Storm in American
History and they never saw it?

Gimme a break....

No Leadership there...from the whole Crew...Chertoff, Brown, Bush, all have an egg on their face...

Where were the warnings of impending dike failure...to get out, the placed has 96 percent chance of fdlooding? If there ever was a time to use strong language, that was the time.

All Bush had to do was say "GET THE FUCK OUTTA NEW ORLEANS...ITS GONNA FLOOD" ON SATURDAY OR SUNDAY. But no, he did not....he woulda been a hero...but now ...he is more like a zero.

3. I've read that he and Condi like to watch football together.
Wonder what Laura thinks of that . . .

But, your right. He shows no curiosity, no adult intelligence at all. If he would just watch something like the Travel Channel, he wouldn't say such clueless things when he's in a foreign land. Guess it's too much to ask of the Chimperor.

17. What kind of staff does he have to prep him for travel abroad or when
meeting with leaders from other Nations?

When traveling to Japan for trade...our company made sure we knew something so as not to embarrass ourselves...
like opening doors in the right direction, LOL...not IN but OUT...I blew a gut over that one

4. His handlers had to burn a DVD of Katrina coverage
to pry him away from his fundraising and partying with John "I hate gooks" McCain.

27. It is true
And, why should Bush waste his beautiful mind thinking about the disaster of New Orleans? (oops, wrong Bush)

But, at least they got better accommodations by sleeping on the floor of the Astrodome (oops, wrong Bush again... )

And, on the DVD, here is an article from Sidney Blumenthal on it:

http://www.truthout.org/docs_2006/030906R.shtml

The Katrina videotape is defining for Bush's presidency. It exposes a deaf man spouting talking points. After the hurricane hit, he stayed on vacation, went to a birthday party, strummed a guitar with a country and western singer, and on September 1 said: "I don't think anybody anticipated the breach of the levees." On his flight back to Washington, four days after landfall, his aides gave him a DVD of television news reports of the hurricane's impact about which he had done nothing to learn on his own.

32. Better to say that than take the heat from letting all those peeps go
with out food/water/toilet paper for 5 fucking days. That was the only way to plead ignorance..."We didn't know"

I still say he did know...

8. News bores him...
So does PDBs, history, or anything even slightly intellectually challenging. God, something may actually challenge what he thinks..we can't have THAT!

Don't forget, he learns all his news from his "trusted advisors." Like Condi, Rummy, and Deadeye Dick.

Prolly the "deepest" TV he watches is the 700 Club.

29. the poster is quoting Babs Bush...
When ABC asked her about if she thought about the casualties in Iraq, she responded (honest to goodness), "why should I waste my beautiful mind on that?"

"Why should we hear about body bags and deaths," Barbara Bush said on ABC's "Good Morning America" on March 18, 2003. "Oh, I mean, it's not relevant. So why should I waste my beautiful mind on something like that?"

25. strange vision
just this morning I was imagining Bush,after we throw his ass out of office, sitting at watching TV for the first time and realizing what everyone had been saying about him, that he was the punch line of every joke. Here he has been living in a bubble, still somehow believes everyone loves him...when he really finds out the truth, I think he is going to lose it bigtime!

30. good point -- "Mr. Easygoing" reportedly freaked out over SNL
Edited on Fri Mar-10-06 07:03 PM by Lisa
... and Will Ferrell's impression of him, during the 2000 recount. He bawled out a bunch of his cronies, who were watching it on TV (he was supposedly asleep, at the other end of the house).

If he's that touchy about a fairly mild teasing, I wonder how he'll react when he sees/hears all the artwork, jokes, comic impressions, etc. that are making the rounds!

33. Only sports. He doesn't read, he doesn't watch the news...
He is hand fed everything he gets, and what he gets is whatever his handlers want him to hear. They don't want to "upset" him, so they paint everything rosy and dread delivering bad news.

He is probably the most uninformed, out-of-touch person in America. The "president".

Oh well, such is life...signs we ain't gonna make it past the nex few years.
