About Bush

The only difference between Hitler and Bush is that Hitler was elected.
~ Kurt Vonnegut (born: 1922-11-11 died: 2007-04-11 at age: 84)
A moment I’ve been dreading. George brought his ne’re-do-well son around this morning and asked me to find the kid a job. Not the political one who lives in Florida. The one who hangs around here all the time looking shiftless. This so-called kid is already almost 40 and has never had a real job. Maybe I’ll call Kinsley over at The New Republic and see if they’ll hire him as a contributing editor or something. That looks like easy work.
~ Ronald Reagan (born: 1911-02-06 died: 2004-06-05 at age: 93), From the Reagan Diaries 1986-05-17.
That’s not the way the world really works anymore. We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors… and you, all of you, will be left to study what we do.
~ Bush aide , 2002
A strong economy depends on a strong middle class, but George Bush has put the middle class in a hole, and John McCain has a plan to keep digging that hole with George Bush’s shovel.
~ Rahm Emanuel (born: 1959-11-29 age: 54)
The demonic appears most terrible when it assumes dominance in someone person. They are not always the most admirable persons, either in mind or in gifts. But a tremendous force goes out from them, and they exercise an unbelievable power over all creatures. It is in vain that the brighter part of mankind tries to throw suspicion on them as betrayers or betrayed; the masses are attracted by them.
~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (born: 1749-08-28 died: 1832-03-22 at age: 82)
The time has come that the American people know exactly what their Representatives are doing here in Washington. Are they feeding at the public trough, taking lobbyist-paid vacations, getting wined and dined by special interest groups? Or are they working hard to represent their constituents? The people, the American people, have a right to know… I say the best disinfectant is full disclosure, not isolation.
~ Tom DeLay (born: 1947-04-08 age: 67), 1995, crookedest politician in Washington.
Below the favorable surface [of the economy], there are as dangerous and intractable circumstances as I can remember..Nothing in our experience is comparable. But no one is willing to understand this and do anything about it. We are consuming about six per cent more than we are producing. What holds the world together is a massive flow of capital from abroad. it’s what feeds our consumption binge. the United States economy is growing on the savings of the poor. A big adjustment will inevitably become necessary, long before the social security surpluses disappear and the deficit explodes. We are skating on increasingly thin ice.
~ Paul Volcker (born: 1927-09-05 age: 87), former Federal Reserve Chair
Within one year, there will be a grand square in Baghdad named for George W. Bush.
~ Richard Perle (born: 1941-09-16 age: 73), 2003-09-22, The prediction did not come true.
Those jihadists who survive will leave Iraq experienced in and focused on acts of urban terrorism.
~ Porter Goss (born: 1938-11-26 age: 75), director of the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency), 2005-02-17
This is no different than what happens at the Skull and Bones initiation… I’m talking about people having a good time, these people, you ever heard of emotional release? You ever heard of the need to blow some steam off?
~ Rush Limbaugh (born: 1951-01-12 age: 63), Talk show host on the Abu Ghraib prisoner abuse scandal
You’ve got to kill the terrorists before the killing stops. And I’m for the president to chase them all over the world. If it takes 10 years, blow them all away in the name of the Lord.
~ Jerry Falwell (born: 1933-08-11 died: 2007-05-15 at age: 73), televangelist
As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.
~ Henry Louis Mencken (born: 1880-09-12 died: 1956-01-29 at age: 75)
The President suffers from character pathology, including grandiosity and megalomania — viewing himself, America and God as interchangeable.

Using various public sources and Freudian techniques for analysing historical figures puts Bush on the couch to find out what makes him tick. Where did his sadism, megalomania, false sense of omnipotence, his comfort living outside the law, his dyslexia, his simplistic we-vs-them thinking all come from? Frank concludes Bush is unfit to govern because of his crippling psychological problems.

I am the one who reupholstered these White House antiques in tiger velvet.
~ Laura Bush (born: 1946-11-04 age: 67)
Why is the United States behaving so arrogantly? All that (Mr. Bush) wants is Iraqi oil.
~ Nelson Mandela (born: 1918-07-18 died: 2013-12-05 at age: 95), 2003-91-30
This [the Iraq war] is just an excuse to get Iraq’s oil.
~ Nelson Mandela (born: 1918-07-18 died: 2013-12-05 at age: 95)
Clinton plays the sax, John plays the guitar, and the President’s a liar…This guy’s [Bush] as bright as an egg timer.
~ Chevy Chase (born: 1943-10-08 age: 71), 2003-07-09
Are we going to continue to follow a self-serving regime of deceit, hypocrisy and belligerence? Or are we, after four disastrous years, going to take a step toward our true responsibility as leader of the free world?
~ Jessica Lange (born: 1949-04-20 age: 65), 2003-07-09
I wondered to myself during Shock and Awe, I wondered which of the megaton bombs Jesus, our President’s personal savior, would have personally dropped on the sleeping families of Baghdad?
~ Meryl Streep (born: 1949-06-22 age: 65), 2003-07-09
When George W. Bush has been confronted with evidence that everything — yes, everything — he said before the war about Iraq’s WMDs (Weapon of Mass Destructions) was absolutely false, he has refused to acknowledge that he peddled misinformation (or disinformation). He just keeps on dancing. And many in the media have enabled his sidestepping.
~ David Korn , 2005-01-19
While the unresolved conflict with Iraq provides the immediate justification, the need for a substantial American force presence in the Gulf transcends the issue of the regime of Saddam Hussein.
~ PNAC (Project for the New American Century) (born: 1997 age: 17) the neocon website, 2000-09
In other words, Saddam and WMDs had bugger all to do with the Iraq war.
If you’re going to go in and try to topple Saddam Hussein, you have to go to Baghdad. Once you’ve got Baghdad, it’s not clear what you do with it. It’s not clear what kind of government you would put in place of the one that’s currently there now. Is it going to be a Shia regime, a Sunni regime or a Kurdish regime? Or one that tilts toward the Baathists, or one that tilts toward the Islamic fundamentalists? How much credibility is that government going to have if it’s set up by the United States military when it’s there? How long does the United States military have to stay to protect the people that sign on for that government, and what happens to it once we leave?
~ Dick Cheney (born: 1941-01-30 age: 73), 1991
Never in human history have such genocide and cruelty been witnessed. Such a genocide was never seen in the time of the pharaohs nor of Hitler nor of Mussolini
~ Mehmet Elkatmi head of Turkish parliament’s human rights commission on Bush’s genocide in the Iraq war. 2004-11-28, originally reported in the Sunday Times of Australia, since withdrawn.
What does Elkatmi mean? He clearly does not mean Bush has already killed 6 million people as Hitler did. He is referring to the cruelty. Even Hitler refused to use poison gas. Hitler and Stalin only used a handful of tortures. Bush has concocted over 70. Bush is a torture and atrocity gourmet. Further, Bush’s systematic extinction of the Iraqi people apparently has no motive. It is violence for the sake of violence. Today the world faces a single man armed with weapons of mass destruction, manifesting an aggressive, bullying attitude, who may well plunge the world into chaos and bloodshed if he miscalculates. This person, belligerent, arrogant and sure of himself, truly is the most dangerous person on earth. The problem is that his name is George W. Bush, and he is our president.
~ Jack M. Balkin (born: 1956-08-13 age: 58), Knight Professor of Constitutional Law and the First Amendment at Yale Law School, 2002-09-22
If George W. Bush was as aggressive in attacking Osama Bin Laden as he is attacking John Kerry maybe bin Laden would be in custody today instead of busy making as many new videos as Britney Spears.
~ Paul Begala (born: 1961-05-12 age: 53) on CNN (Cable News Network) ’s Crossfire
Huge amounts of charisma, swagger, cowboy boots, flight jacket, wonderful smile, just charisma — you know, wow
~ Karl Rove (born: 1950-12-25 age: 63) his little Turdblossom lusting after George, reported widely
Bush is as qualified to talk about freedom as Bill Clinton is to talk about chastity.
~ James Bovard
Somehow I found him [George W. Bush] totally devoid of compassion, social responsibility, and good study discipline. What I remember most about him was all the kind of flippant statements that he made inside of classroom as well as outside.
~ Yoshi Tsurumi , Bush’s Harvard University business professor
Only George W. Bush could celebrate over a record budget deficit of $422 billion, a loss of 1.6 million jobs and Medicare premiums that are up by a record 17 percent. W stands for wrong — the wrong direction for America.
~ John Kerry (born: 1943-12-11 age: 70), Democratic presidential candidate, 2004-09-07
Honestly, I think we should just trust our president in every decision that he makes and we should just support that.
~ Britney Spears (born: 1981-12-02 age: 32), professional airhead, 2003-09
A war with Iraq will gratify our need to avenge September 11. It does not matter that Iraq is not the culprit. Bush needs only to ignore the evidence. Which he does with all the power of a man who has never been embarrassed by himself. Saddam, for all his crimes, did not have a hand in September 11, but George W. Bush is a philosopher. September 11 was evil, Saddam is evil, all evil is connected. Ergo, Iraq… If I were George W. Bush’s karmic defense attorney, I would argue that his best chance to avoid conviction as a purveyor of false morality would be to pray for a hung jury in the afterworld.
~ Norman Mailer (born: 1923-01-31 died: 2007-11-10 at age: 84)
Not only does George W. Bush ignore his ethical responsibilities in matters of environmental stewardship, he fails to understand the complex relationship between economics and environmental concerns and the longtime consequences of setting policies slanted so strongly in favor of the energy industry.
~ Russell Train (born: 1920-06-04 died: 2012-09-17 at age: 92) a lifelong Republican who played a key rôle in forging environmental policy under Presidents Nixon and Ford.
He actually can pick up the telephone. He’s actually very, very competent in a lot of ways.
~ Laura Bush (born: 1946-11-04 age: 67) on her husband
I think the actions of the president are, in my opinion, the most vile and hateful words ever spoken by a sitting president, I am stunned and I’m horrified.
~ Rosie O’Donnell (born: 1962-03-21 age: 52), 2004-02-20 on Bush’s proposed constitutional amendment to deny gays the right to marry.
The government is not really telling the truth to the American people. Past administrations from the time of Alexander Hamilton have on the average run responsible budgetary policies. What we have here is a form of looting.
~ George A. Akerlof (born: 1940-06-17 age: 74), Nobel prize winner for economics 2001
No president of the United States should employ misguided ideology and distortion of the truth to take the nation to war. In doing so, the President broke the basic bond of trust between government and the people. If Congress and the American people knew the whole truth, America would never have gone to war.
~ Edward (Ted) Kennedy (born: 1932-02-22 died: 2009-08-25 at age: 77), Senator, 2004-01-14
In the 23 months I was there, I never saw anything that I would characterise as evidence of weapons of mass destruction.
~ Paul O’Neill (born: 1935-12-04 age: 78)
former US treasury secretary, in Time Magazine.
George is pretty impulsive, and does pretty much everything to excess. Drinking is not one of the good things to do to excess.
~ Laura Bush (born: 1946-11-04 age: 67)
quoted in Favorite Son page 73.
Bush describes himself as a passionate conservative which in Texas means he asks how you like your Jell-O just before he flips the switch.
~ Craig Kilborn (born: 1962-08-24 age: 52) the Daily Show
quoted in Favorite Son page 82.
If you’ve seen one redwood tree, you’ve seen them all.
~ Ronald Reagan (born: 1911-02-06 died: 2004-06-05 at age: 93)
Come the millennium, month twelve, In the home of greatest power, The village idiot will come forth to be acclaimed the leader.
~ Nostradamus 1555 AD
a spoof of the original:
To an old leader will be born an idiot heir,
weak both in knowledge and in war.
The leader of France is feared by his sister,
battlefields divided, conceded to the soldiers.
~ Nostradamus (born: 1503-12-04 died: 1566-07-02 at age: 62) Century 1 quatrain 78
Bush is a mental defective, with severe neurological problems from drug addiction.
~ Lyndon Larouche (born: 1922-09-08 age: 92)
Bush says he isn’t going to play the rumor game — specifically, the rumor that he was born with a silver spoon in his nose.
~ Mark Russell (born: 1932-08-23 age: 82)
We know Saddam has weapons of mass destruction; we have the receipts.
~ Mark Russell (born: 1932-08-23 age: 82)
Saying we’re in a slow recovery, not a recession, is like saying we don’t have any unemployed — we just have a lot of people who are really, really late for work.
~ Jay Leno (born: 1950-04-28 age: 64)
He’s not stupid, he’s just drunk. All the black people who voted for Bush are both on his cabinet.
~ Chris Rock (born: 1965-02-07 age: 49)
Candidly, I have gotten somewhat nervous at some of the pronouncements Rumsfeld has made.… He almost sometimes seems to be enjoying it.
~ General Norman Schwarzkopf (born: 1934-08-22 died: 2012-12-27 at age: 78)
I don’t think George W. George W. Bush is conscious. In other words, there’s nobody home in George W. George W. Bush
~ Deep Blue Jean , 2002-07-04, as part of its performance in passing the Turing test.
Technically, a moron is someone who is stupid but looks normal.
~ Albert Nerenberg (born: 1962 age: 52)
Toronto-based film director
Doing a documentary called Stupidity.
George Bush is not a moron… he is my friend.
~ Jean Chrétien (born: 1934-01-11 age: 80)
Prime Minister of Canada
After one of his top aides publicly called Bush a moron.
President George W. Bush’s speech on Iraq is significant mostly because it reveals that he long ago made a decision for war and has always viewed the inspection process as an impediment to war to be overcome rather than a means to avoid war.
~ Doug Bandow (born: 1957-04-15 age: 57) senior fellow with the Cato Institute, a conservative think tank.
No one has substantiated the allegations that Iraq possesses weapons of mass destruction or is attempting to acquire weapons of mass destruction. And of course that is the reason we have been given for going to war against Iraq — because of the threat posed by these weapons. It has been nothing but rhetorically laced speculation, not hard facts, that have been presented by either the United States or Great Britain to back this up, and until they provide hard facts, there is no case for war.
~ Scott Ritter (born: 1961-07-15 age: 53), former head weapons inspector for the USA.
It still confuses many Americans that, in a world full of vicious slimeballs, we’re about to bomb one that didn’t attack us on 9/11 (like Osama); that isn’t intercepting our planes (like North Korea); that isn’t financing Al Qaeda (like Saudi Arabia); that isn’t home to Osama and his lieutenants (like Pakistan); that isn’t a host body for terrorists (like Iran, Lebanon and Syria).
~ Maureen Dowd (born: 1952-01-14 age: 62) Bush: The Xanax Cowboy
One of the great attractions of patriotism — it fulfills our worst wishes. In the person of our nation we are able, vicariously, to bully and cheat. Bully and cheat, what’s more, with a feeling that we are profoundly virtuous.
~ Aldous Huxley (born: 1894-07-26 died: 1963-11-22 at age: 69)
The bad news is that North Korea has restarted its nuclear reactors, so we know that they could soon have a nuke that could hit the west coast here in California. The president has said that this is still not a crisis because they don’t have one that could hit a red [Republican] state.
~ Bill Maher (born: 1956-01-20 age: 58), HBO (Home Box Office) ’s Real Time With Bill Maher
How bad do you have to suck to lose a popularity contest with Saddam Hussein?
~ Bill Maher (born: 1956-01-20 age: 58)
So — so when it comes to sacrifice, don’t kid yourself. You have given up a lot. You’ve given up faith in your government’s honesty, the goodwill of people overseas, and six-tenths of the Bill of Rights. Here’s what you’ve sacrificed: search and seizure, warrants, self-incrimination, trial by jury, cruel and unusual punishment. Here’s what you have left: hand guns, religion, and they can’t make you quarter a British soldier. If Prince Harry invades the Inland Empire, he has to bring a tent.
~ Bill Maher (born: 1956-01-20 age: 58), 2007-03-17, Real Time with Bill Maher
Our government has kept us in a perpetual state of fear — kept us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervour — with the cry of grave national emergency. Always there has been some terrible evil at home or some monstrous foreign power that was going to gobble us up if we did not rally behind it.
~ Douglas MacArthur (born: 1880-01-26 died: 1964-04-05 at age: 84), 1957-08-17, WWII (World War II) general
