34. It's what a pathological narcissist is about.
He should be locked up in solitary, in a padded cell for the rest of his miserable life.

8. That woman's hands are bigger than his.
And she's about five feet tall.

I'll bet they rehearsed that a dozen times.

16. So obviously rehearsed.
Edited on Fri May-30-08 05:19 PM by arcadian
Like that cadet would have any idea that from Bush's body language, the pResident wanted him to butt chests with him. Isn't there some kind of protocol thing? In the Chief Executive's office? The Air Force academy? A graduation ceremony? What if the Secret Service had floored that kid?

22. I think these pictures pretty much...
...sum up this assholes presidency. Everything is a fucking game with him. He doesn't realize (he's just too stupid to) that EVERYTHING he does as president as meaning and consequences. He doesn't realize that other leaders are watching and expect him to act with class and dignity. He doesn't realize that his actions have a direct effect on the lives and livelihoods of billions of people (not that he'd give a shit if he did). His being president is pretty much what you would expect from a junior high school boy, and not a very bright one at that. Are his advisers either as blind to protocol and decorum as he is? Or are they just afraid to tell him that certain things are just inappropriate? Either way, he is an disgrace and embarrassment, and the sooner he is gone the better. There are just some people who go through life never contributing anything, who only care about themselves and those closest to them, and he is just that. I doubt he has ever done a good thing in his life just because it was the right thing to do. What a useless piece of shit. Oh, and BTW, has anyone ever heard his stepford wife with the painted on smile show an ounce of remorse for having killed a person in a drunk driving accident? :mad:

32. Yup...
again, like a below average junior high school student. We always hear about people who thing they're above the law, and it's obvious he believes he is. Let's just hope he's not proven right. How sweet would it be to see him frog-marched in an orange jump suit!

29. I avoid hearing him speak, and I avoid seeing him in photos.
Both for the same reason. I find him personally embarrassing. I have a fairly positive image of America and americans. When I think of America, I think of Jefferson, Lincoln, both Roosevelts, and Kennedy.

I think of us as fairly serious, or at a minimum, credible.

I spent 12 years as a councilperson in a one-stoplight little dinky town in ruralsville, WA. But during that time, I had lots of interactions with lots of mechanics, farmers, builders, used-car salesmen, bar-owners, loggers, paraeducators, clerks and housewives, who chose to serve their communities as elected officals.

I have never met an elected (or appointed) official, from even the most backwards burg, who is worse than our president. Okay, maybe one - the person who was appointed to a city council seat after losing the mayoral election. The reason he lost was because he told the newspaper that he was going to fire the Police Chief because his officers watched the bar that he (the candidate) frequented.
