Which Bush mannerisms do you hate the most?
I hate it when he smiles and waves like he's Princess Diana. I also hate his face and his coke snorting large nostrils. When he smiles, his face contorts into a twisted and witch like shape.

3. Giving nicknames...what a 2 year old freak of a President
He is so happy with himself.

4. Definitely the smirk, which Unca Karl coached him to use
whenever he is trapped in a lie or with a question he doesn't know the answer to, which is why he is always smirking.

And the pregnant pause that he tries to pass off as presidential, but which actually him struggling to try to put two words together.

5. I agree but my big thing today is not Bush but Rumsfeld's double pointing
fingers. It is a mannerism that I find very offensive.

8. I hate the way he tries to walk like John Wayne. He comes across as
a schoolyard bully and a big mouthed Texas Souffle. :D

7. The Elbow Lean...
...when he makes a speech. It is SOOO obvious when he does that that he doesn't give a rat's patoot about what he's talking about. That is, assuming he knows what he's talking about, which I doubt!

10. The way he sits with his legs spread wide open and slouching
I will never forget when he was meeting with Kofi Annan and of course Annan was sitting up straight with legs crossed (very statesmen like) and then there was our president slouching and then with his legs spread wide open. I mean shouldn't Barbara have trained him right if he was supposed to take on the Bush legacy. Oh it just makes me sick to think that he disrespects us so much that he is going to present himself like that on TV.

17. Completely agree. I think it's contemptuous.
That's the WORST attribute of Bush. It shows exactly what he is...a spoiled, pampered rich boy who's never known hardship or deprivation and who has never had to do anything for himself.

I always think of the smirk when I hear some doofus talk about how "likable" Bush is.

If it wasn't so disturbing, it would be hilarious.

19. That cocky smirk/body movement thing he does...
that makes him look like a cartoon. Only an evil cartoon character you can't trust because there's always something extra going on. Like he says one thing and does another.

24. Bush is annoying
Ok i have 2 that make me crazy,
First, When he attempts humor and recycles that line "Like myself he married above humself" How many times has he said that?

Second, when making a speech he makes gestures like he's going to bang on the podium to make his point, but he keeps his palm open. Hate that.

25. The smirk and the 'I'm half in the bag' incoherence...and they are often
Edited on Wed Mar-24-04 10:23 AM by grannylib
combined. When he manages to pronounce something multisyllabic and sibilant without COMPLETELY fucking it up, he pauses and smirks like a second-grader who memorized his lines and is expecting applause.

Arrogant, stupid, spoiled, hypocritical little puppet.

On edit: he is also very, um,...'vocabularily challenged.'
In his lexicon:
hostile= hostage
resignate= resonate
strategery= strategy
misunderestimate...well, yeah.
Anyone really believe this moron EARNED his Cs at Yale?? Bought 'em more like...no way this idiot could have honestly earned 'em, he's as sharp as a spoon...

26. Just watching him speak and butcher the English language
Is literally painful for me to watch. I have to grimace every time I see him on TV -and usually I have to change the channel if he utters more than two sentences

28. The Way. He reads. Sentences in. Short bursts.
Continually pausing. And I hate. How he grins. With self pride. Whenever he pronounces. A difficult word.

30. That fucking smirk
Apologies for the profanity, but that little "smile" just shows how much pure contempt he has for everyone not in his circle -- gives me the chills.

33. the way he walks like he's got a stick up his butt.
He combines that obnoxious walk with the smirk and Princess Diana wave when he's leaving Airforce One or on the lawn at the White House sometimes. When he's like that on the news I always change the channel so I don't have to poison my brain with that image. I LOATH that scumbag.
