Bush looks BORED, PISSED, CONTEMPTUOUS in today's "briefing" photos.


http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/050905/photos_...

U.S. President George W. Bush listens during a briefing at an emergency operation center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, September 5, 2005. Bush, under criticism for his government's slow response to Hurricane Katrina, promised on Monday that the U.S. would 'do what it takes' to help victims of the devastating storm get back on their feet.

U.S. President George W. Bush (C) listens to Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff (R) as Lt. Gen. Russ Honore (L) listens in during Bush's visit to an emergency operation center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, September 5, 2005. Bush has come under fire for waiting until two days after Katrina hit to return to Washington from his ranch in Crawford, Texas, to oversee the federal response to the disaster.

US President George W. Bush (C) talks with Hurricane Katrina survivors Ailisa Eugene (2nd R) and Franklin Jack (R) at an emergency shelter at the Bethany World Prayer Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Bush's administration has drawn fire from both sides of the political divide for its early failure to speed troops and relief supplies to stricken areas where thousands were feared dead.(AFP/Mandel Ngan)

49. I think that's EXACTLY what he's thinking.
MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN, I had to leave Crawford early for this shit... I dunno what the fuck to do about any of this. What am I supposed to do about it, anyway? Aw, leave me alone, people. Whaddya want from me? I got things to do."

Awwww, georgie-poopsie, I guess you can't even tell us to "watch this drive" when you're stuck doing this stupid compassionate conservative stuff you don't really believe in, but you're still stuck doing it because you need the photo ops. How sad for you.

Poor Chimpy, first that ol' hippeye woman has the audacity to camp outside his ranch, over some triviality like her son being killed in his oil war. And then, he had to break off his vacation two days early, just because this hurricane killed a few hundred thousand poor people who are poor 'cuz they're too lazy to work. Life is really rough when you're a clueless cokehead spoiled rotten little frat turd. My heart really goes out to him. Not -

34. Thanks for the update, BEB.
"A picture tells a thousand words".

I think the look on his face is on a combination of boredom and fear. Boredom, because he really doesn't want to be there. He already said, "I'm not looking forward to going (to the South)". He doesn't care about people.

He cares even less about people in distress. It bothers him that when he took his oath of office, he committed to protect the American people in times of need. He sure regrets that promise.

The FEAR is about his plunging poll numbers. He knows that if Americans get pushed too far, they're going to revolt. And then he's dead meat.

He's hoping the Photo-ops and blaming everyone but himself will defuse some of that.

40. SHAME is the Achilles heel of the Republican Party: outline for its uses:
Ive come to the conclusion that SHAME is the PsyOps maneuver the Dems should and can use. Yes, you have to wait until after the event but after the event e.g., Iraq War, NOLA, are examples where SHAME can be utilized and it is the neocon Achilles heel if not that of the entire Republican party.

Think about SHAME for a moment. How does it feel to you to feel ashamed---of something you have done or not done. If you are in the place of shame, you have been thinking about something that has already occurred. It is already in your mind. Otherwise, you would not so obviously feel shame.

I gave out 2 diff pieces of paper: 1: page outline of what CAFTA is, how it affects us (using a public.citizen.org reference) and what Taylors non-vote had done. 2. Mary Olsons information re: the war: small piece of paper (I think people were more willing to take just a small piece of paper) and as I presented it, I said: Sir would you like some information about the war and if they reached to take it, I spoke loudly for others around them to hear, over 1800 dead American soldiers and clearly the shame registered for about 75% of those people.

Im reminded of the very exasperated questioner re: the McCarthy hearings, asking Joe McCarthy something to this effect: Have you no SHAME sir?

When I was in Hendersonville today, I mapped out my interactions with probably 200 people as I walked around with my very tall, homemade sign that stated on one side: GOP = Death and the other, Ask Charles about CAFTA. I stood across from the Republican Party shelter during the parade.

1. quite a few people do not know what GOP means.
2. quite a few people do not know what CAFTA means. The ones that do are perturbed with Taylor. Concommitantly, the sign which was purported to be there, which I did not see, CAFTA got your tongue would have, IMHO, pretty useless if useless is defined as lots of people dont get it except for Mr. Taylor and the GOP regulars and people who knew about CAFTA and were already convinced that it was a bad thing. In other words, I believe it would have a minimal effect if by effect you want to change peoples votes.

So, as a psychologist who has developed questionnaires, the development of materials for distribution in order to educate people has to pay attention to what people know and it has to attend to what the purpose of the material is: to educate? To shame?; to bellow? .

So, lets back up: whats the sample of the population like in Hendersonville, NC? I dont know the actual number but I do know that Hendersonville is a stronghold for Taylor. He strode down the street today, shaking hands with anyone who wanted to and when I asked him, as I popped to the front of the crowd: Mr. Taylor: Can you tell us about your CAFTA vote, he paused just very briefly, and he stated, I did vote for CAFTA which we know is either a lie or very close to a lie. In any case, his vote did ot register.

Here would be my suggestions for future such gatherings (that is, the population at large, and not as associated with rallies which are associated with preaching to the choir):

1. target the distribution according to the population: Hendersonville is rural in part, quite Republican. CAFTA means lost jobs to those in textiles and agriculture, as far as I can tell. Any documentation of its effects either now or in the future need to be fully exploited and advertised.

2. More, many more Dems, need to come out. I saw 4 older ladies at the Hendersonville Dem HQ and that was IT people save for one other woman I just ran into walking around and Mary Olson and her partner, Pete.

3. Fully exploit the human emotion of SHAME, which is present except in people who are without a superego and there is no reaching them in any case (but probably only 10% of the American population overall is in this category and probably less if you could really target something they are interested in).

And here is the Shame statement for the day: HOW MANY SOLIDERS PER GALLON DOES YOUR SUV GET? and frankly that could really be stated otherwise (and in this, we also shame ourselves which is not a bad thing): HOW MANY SOLDIERS PER GALLON DOES YOUR CAR GET?

54. Poor Little Caligula-- it's hard to tell if he's pissed cuz he thinks he's
the president or cuz he knows that he's NOT.

Looks like he wishes he had some

57. I think he looks like he's aged 10 years in the past week.
I think he looks worried for his political ass. I don't think he looks as smarmy as usual, but I don't see compassion dripping form his eyes, either.

61. That's a nice looking silk shirt he's wearing.
I would have thought he would have worn denim and chambray instead of silk.

81. That's the first thing I noticed:
the carefully calculated "casual" attire. His security are wearing a similar look. In fact, they always dress in complimentary pseudo-casual.

going to play itself. Can we wrap this up? Like today?"

73. 'Grown man' automatically pouts when challenged or laughs inappropriately
He's very connected to his own feelings but utterly disconnected to the feelings and suffering of others. Eventually we see the real attitudes displayed on his face even if they aren't in his words.

74. Every time I see
this man's face...I understand all over again, why I can't fucking(hope I'm allowed to say that) stand to look at him...wonder if he had a problem getting that close to the unfortunate couple...hypocrit...they can thank him for being where they are...my captions below....

I don't want to hear that!...
What do you mean, Gov.Blanco wouldn't let me take over her state? I cut the damned funding so she wouldn't have a chance when this happened!
I hope you know I had nothing to do with the situation you're in...
What do you mean, you didn't vote for me?

77. It's that second to last photo I love. The woman there? Pissed.
Let me first post that my heart goes out to those people. Not only have they lost their homes, lives, jobs, and sense of stability, they have to deal with *. And the female survivor there? Not afraid to reveal her true impression of him. Look at her face. What do YOU think she thinks?

78. He's been reading the polls.
Must be tough to realize he is not the hero he wants to be and his God has let him down.

80. Fuck, he's got that "don't bother me" look in photo 1
I've seen that look before. That's his "I'd rather be knocking back a pint of Johnny Walker Red down at the ranch than deal with this stupid shit" look. It's irritating and shows, as if we need more proof, what a vile, disgusting prick he is.

83. True. The top two pictures in the OP scream it out -
"sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeee-it, do I really gotta be here? Can I leave now? Isn't it enough that I had to cut my vacation short for this? C'mon - whaddya want from me? I wanna go home. How long do I have to stay here? Anybody know how much longer this is gonna take? Wish these people'd stop botherin' me... Can I leave now? I'm done. You got yer photos, okay. I'm done. I got important things to do... I need to get on with my life, y'know..."

84. Check out the wrinkles on his forehead in #1
not a calmness indicator. He's severely stressed out. That boy needs a drink.
