Conservatives’ 40-Minute Tribute To Bush On House Floor: He Was A ‘Knowing Lion’ Who ‘Walked Among
Us

http://thinkprogress.org/2009/01/24/gop-tribute-bush /

George W. Bush is gone from office…but he is not forgotten, at least not by Reps. Trent Franks (R-AZ), Mike Pence (R-IN), and Steve King (R-IA). On Thursday, the three men spent almost 40 minutes delivering their final love letters to Bush. Some highlights:

– FRANKS: “President Bush often had to walk like a knowing lion — like a knowing lion, Mr. Speaker, through the chattering of hyenas. … f those critics do not devour themselves in the meantime, Mr. Speaker, they may face the bared teeth of an enemy that will make us all wish the lion still walked among us.”

– PENCE: “I truly believe that this nation owes a debt of gratitude to George W. Bush.”

– KING: “I’m here to say thank you to President Bush for the things that he has done when he’s had his steady hand on the till of leadership, and especially with our national defense.”

3. He was a sensitive man, who cried when his beloved dog Spot died...
But couldn't give a lesser shit about the people who died from his shitty one-way war-profiteering decisions.

5. Most of the "knowing" lions
in the nature programs are the slovenly males, sitting back most of the time while the prairie unfolds in front of them. Prone to rage, they'll even kill their own young. The lionesses bust their asses for these fleabitten slobs.

The chattering hyenas? Maybe not as falsely watermarked with nobility as the lions. But they're quick. And efficient. And adaptive.

8. More desperation...
Like that with Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Kit Bond, and all the other Republicans that have their bowels locked because of the victory and the actions of Barack Obama.

20. he was a no-wing lion, not a Sphinx
obviously THAT is what they said, certainly he proved repeatedly, his aversion to his job via his record-breaking vacations. Either that or he was a Cowardly Lion-he definately didn't have the nerve to live his words.

29.  "steady hand on the till of leadership, and especially with our national defense.”
Edited on Sat Jan-24-09 10:38 PM by Urban Prairie
Muahahaha!!!

More like a steady hand IN the till of the nation's economic cash register.

I am SOOO tired of reading how Chimpy kept US safe, I feared his administration's economic terrorism FARRRR more that any Islamic terrorism in the US. It is like a thief telling you that you won't be killed while he robs you blind.

31. Reminds me of this Bruce Cockburn song
Sun's up, uuh huh, looks okay
the world survives into another day
and i'm thinking about eternity
some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me.
I had another dream about lions at the door
they weren't half as frightening as they were before
but i'm thinking about eternity
some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me.
