Bush after being asked about new Dallas home: "Why do you care? You live in Washington, DC."


President George W.

<snip>

During his time in the White House President Bush vacationed at his ranch in Crawford, Texas. The First Lady's Office said that despite the move to Dallas, the couple "will continue to spend time at Prairie Chapel Ranch in Crawford, Texas."

When asked about his new home today at an event at the White House, President Bush replied sarcastically to the reporter: "Why do you care? You live in Washington, DC."

1. He's such a charmer
He's not even trying to disguise his disdain for anyone who doesn't "love" him.

What a weasel creep fucktard.

3. I don't think I'll ever forgive the MSM for covering Bush's sociopathy.
There's no way these people weren't aware of how fake his public persona was, but they pushed the "regular guy" narrative through both his campaigns and both terms.

6. You know what always got me?
How they sucked up and made out that his "nicknames" were SO VERY, VERY CLEVER. Like the sobriquet "Kenny Boy" as a nickname for Ken Lay showed some kind of superior imagination.

The MSM are nothing but suckups.

And what I'm thinking now is that they'll do their traditional Democrat-hating routine and start landing on Obama for absolutely nothing at all, just as they did with Clinton from Day One.

I loathe them all.

7. Making up nicknames for people -- in his case, it is verbal bullying.

9. And he treated them with this same barely disguised disdain
Yet they flocked around him like moths to a flame, each one hoping for an invitation to the next swell party. I don't know that I blame Chimpy for his arrogance; it's been bred into him. But what possible excuse does the popular media have for continuing to cleave to this abusive relationship?

11. If it weren't for the economy & other shit going down...I wouldn't mind Bush hanging till January
just so he could remind everyone daily about his increasing irrelevance and what a snide little man he is.

However, given that he's taking up space and doing nothing to remedy any part of the current crisis I just wish he'd pack up his shit in the middle of the night and head to Dallas.

Unfortunately, that means we'd be stuck with Cheney until January so perhaps Bush skipping out isn't something to wish for right now.
