Subject: BS: Admirable Qualities of GWBush
From: GUEST,guest from NW
Date: 02 Nov 03 - 09:29 PM

since no one from the republican/GWB faction cared to answer the direct query posed by kendall in the thread "what's worse than bush in 2004" (tho pdq claimed he responded) i thought i'd start a thread on it and see if anyone could give a list of dubya's admirable qualities. i'm truly curious because personally i see nothing in his attitude, demeanor, resume, or policies that i would admire. this was the question from the previous thread...

"Now, what should we admire about this loser (GW Bush) who never succeeded at anything in his life?"

that shows some personal bias from the questioner so let's leave that alone and just tell us the things to admire about GWB without referring to bill clinton, the democrats, liberals, hypocrisy, etc. is this possible, bushbuddies out there?

He lies well! Hey, Clinton didn't! It takes a very special person to stand before a camera an' lie so convincingly. Sure, every one listening is saying "He's lieing" to themselves but most also mutter, "Yeah, but its as if he believes it."

Admirable? He seems to wear a clean shirt every day and he seems to have a nice ranch, and he seems to have his pecker under control (or someone does, anyway).
He's toilet-trained, as far as I know.

He's not personally violent -- he likes to use others.

I'll get back to you on this. There might be a couple of other things....he shaves good...

Dubya gives good return on investment. Contributors gave his campaign $100,000,000+ to run for President in 2000. In less than 3 years, he gave them back $350,000,000,000+ in tax relief. That's a return of 3500 to 1 folks. You don't find investments like that everyday. Granted, the deficit will eventually have to be repaid, but by then someone else will be stuck with it.

He's managed to convince a majority of the American people that he is the right man for the job of President of the USA. That's some bullshit artist. It's like me saying I would be a good manager of our state's highways, when all I know is that there are stripes in the middle.

Some people have changed their minds, I only hope it's enough to keep this sawed-off little prick from winning another term. I am not optimistic. One lady I work with stated that the nine Democratic candidates should have been killed in the WTC disaster, because they voiced their opposition to the Shrub and his policies. I am very fearful for American society. Thanks, BlueJay

Whenever I've seen his feet he's been wearing shoes.

His wife's a librarian.

He's never been found in the Tidal Basin with a stripper.

I don't think he smokes cigars, and if he chews tobacco he doesn't dribble it down his chin.

He is as good a President as Reagan ever was.

A great quote from someone responding to an opponent: "Your position is so ill thought out that it does not even constitute a point of view." George W is a quantity to which no qualities of any kind can adhere -- he is the absence of presence, a moral nullity, a void where a man should be, a blank canvas upon which his masters paint their dark pictures, a hamstrung puppet, a cavernous echo for other voices, an empty vessel into which foolishness is poured, pressed down, and overfloweth, a disappearing trick from a rabbitless hat, he is not worth the invisible ink spilt in describing the lack of a there, there.

Molly Ivins was on Wait Wait Don't Tell Me! (on NPR) over the weekend, and said that she find's Bush "affable." Not a good leader, mind you, but always affable. Her view is that grown-ups can like someone and still think "boy, is that ever a bad idea, he shouldn't be doing that job." Like Bush doing the presidency.

An old "Wizard of Id" (cartoon) strip ran like this. Two soldiers are marching in a long line. First soldier: "Are we advancing or retreating?" Second soldier: "Where's Sir Rodney?" First soldier: "In front." Second soldier: "Then we are retreating."

I may disagree with some of GWB's decisions. But at least he by God made them. He never sent out his flunkies with a hundred questionaires to find out which way the "political wind" was blowing before he decided whether to lead or to follow. Ridicule him if you want, that is one of the great freedoms we have in America that makes this country great.

I just wonder what would have happened if Clinton had the political nerve to take Osama bin Laden when he had the chance, but refused because he was advised that it would be seen a politically risky move in certain parts of the mid-East.

Remember Jimmy Carter?

I do disagree with some of GWB's decisions, come to think of it. At least he is a president that gives me that opportunity.

humbly,

Freightdawg

That's what puzzles me - I can imagine, at least in theory, how someone might like the way he does the job, and think he's what America and the world needs right now - it takes all sorts. (For example, a lot of people here admired Thatcher, close to idolatry in some cases, but I think there were very few people actually "liked" her.)

But liking Bush - that's a bit mind-boggling. He'd be the kind of next door neighbour that would make me use the back door in case I ran into him, even if we shared the same political views down the line. That kind of remark by that lady there is the sort that brings it home how wide the Atlantic can be, because it seems pretty clear that is how a lot of Americans do see it.

...

However, looking on the bright side, he'll make a splendid effigy omn bonfire up and down England on the Fifth of November.

Actually, those who have been inside the White House inner circle come out reporting that aboslutely everything, everything, everything is based on the direction of the political wind. They report that there is no overriding foreign, nor domestic policy, only a continual re-election campaign.

Bush's most admirable quality, imho, is that he shows us how little importance the American public places upon scholarship and conscience, the wellbeing of the advantages-challenged here at home, and honesty... when it comes to selecting it's politicians and statesmen... Bush is no 'stand alone', but a product of our ambiguous American culture, and what he represents is as confusing to me as Bartok... but by golly... he sure is teaching us alot about ourselves...

Kendall, having served as a sports official, I would say that every call is going to anger at least half of the crowd. However, don't make any call and you immediately anger 100% of the crowd. Any decision, especially one involving life and death, is especially open to second guessing from every armchair politician and wisecracker.

Kat, I would suggest that W doing what he did in Iraq has more to do with his Dad's not finishing up than any massive public opinion. The fact that public opinion is fading fast is an indication that W led the American people at a time when they were leaning toward finishing up with Saddam, but he made way too many errors in implementing his plan.

I am quite frankly stunned by the sudden turn of public opinion regarding the war. We fought for over 4 years (Europeans, even longer) in WWII and we had a sense of collective purpose. And it was only after the war that we had a complete picture of the evil that Hitler was capable of doing. I just wish some of those who think we are wasting our time over there would be able to talk to the Iraqis who no longer have to worry about death squads and their wives and children being raped and tortured.

Our best opportunity to achieve this was when Saddam threw the inspectors out when Clinton was President. He had every opportunity to achieve the goal of liberating the Iraqi people, but he did not have the political nerve.

I abhor the duplicity coming from the White House, but in the name of whoever or whatever you consider holy, let's be grateful the Iraqi people now have a chance for a stable future. And, most certainly, let us hope the reign of terror will quickly come to an end. I don't think that is a democratic or republican wish. Just a human one.

humbly,

Freightdawg

He has all his major body parts.

He is a beacon to stupid people everywhere that even YOU can become the most powerful man in the world.

He makes it possible for people in 48 states to feel superior to Texas AND Kennybunkport Maine all at the same go (49 as Mainers can look down just at that little part of Maine...)

His is not frightningly tall.

If he contacts Altzhimer's... no one will notice and therefore, we will not worry about him as we do for Mr. Regan...

His speaches are less hateful than Adolf Hitlers....

He makes underachivers feel triumphant

He does not hunt eliphants or net dolphins or eat gorillas (at least I don't believe he does...)

He did not ride with Jesse James.

Forensic evidence rules him out as Jack the Ripper

He is not a theater critic.

Yeah, okay...

He loves baseball, and he did a great job running the baseball team in Texas (the Texas Rangers, was it?).

Kendall - Will you drop this hackneyed shit about "no Italian war heroes"? There were plenty of them, they just got no recognition whatsoever in Allied propaganda, and their country had too weak an economy to properly arm them...putting them in a wretched spot on the battlefield where they were usually outnumbered and always outgunned.

Here are some Italian heroes: the frogmen who penetrated Alexandria Harbour in their submersibles and sank 2 British battleships at their moorings, the soldiers who fought a virtually forgotten campaign with the British in central Africa, nearly winning it despite being basically cut off from supply, the bomber pilots who made the Royal Navy's life miserable flying the S.M.79 torpedo bombers in the Med (they sank a whole lot of Allied ships and suffered heavy losses doing it), the many Italian fighter pilots who became aces flying underarmed Italian aircraft against overwhelming odds from mid '42 on...

There were lots of Italian heroes. They did not lack courage, they lacked enough modern equipment, and they lacked an intelligent government, and they were in a war they should never have gotten into in the first place, but they were led by a glory-seeking idiot (Mussolini).

Not one of their names is remembered now outside of Italy...except by air history buffs such as myself.

(I am not Italian, I just know a lot about World War II, and I'm getting tired of this cliche being endlessly repeated.)

The oft-maligned French have also demonstrated tremendous courage under fire on more occasions than can be counted.

Yes, this is thread drift.

Back to the admirable qualities of George Bush...

By the way, Saddam did not kick the inspectors out, they left of their own accord because he made their job difficult. I see a big difference, don't you?
And, if Bush was so successful as a baseball team owner, why did he sell it?

well i go back to my blanket and there he was...the biggest the meanest bobcat that I have ever laid my eyes on...curled right up on my blanket. Well like I said this bastard was huge...he made Babe the blue ox look like a hairless toy poodle with horns...

But you know? I couldn't stand seeing this thing sleeping on MY blanket....not when I was needing it...so I marched right up to him and jumped upon his sleeping form...boy you should have heard that racket...the screeches and the yowls and the roars were loud enough to shake the entire town of Plains to the very foundations....so loud the hills came tumbling down into the Clark Fork River...and a once hilly countryside is now a marshy swamp....but anyways me and that cat must have been going at for four hours before we decided to take a breather...I had a few chuncks bitten out of me...some bald patches on my head...and a few other odds and ends...and that bobcat had a few chunks bitten out of him...and several missing tufts of hair throughout his body...a few of its sharp teeth were missing as well...

My gramma comes out of her trailer and tends to our bleeding wounds...and feeds and waters us....and then we go on for round two...biting and scratching and clawing and yowling, knocking the trees over...knocking over fences and boulders and whats left of the town of Plains...this goes on for another four hours or so....til we had to stop and rest some more...i had a couple of strands of hair on my body left...and a few more chunks of meat missing...the cat was missing a couple of claws that had been bitten off.....half of it's tail missing...an ear gone...and like me...the cat was almost completely hairless by this time...well...I looked at the cat...and then looked down at me...and just started chuckling...the cat looked at me funny for a bit and then started laughing too...I said you know this is ridiculous...we can BOTH share that blanket...the bobcat nodded it's head and we went down to the blanket (or what was left of it by this time) and slept....I tell you that was the best sleep I have ever gotten...

A little exercise during the day usually means you sleep a lot more soundly. The trick, of course, is to get the bobcat to agree that there are alternative solutions to the problem, but if someone doesn't at least try, it'll never happen.

Speaking of cute, fuzzy animals, I like cocker spaniels. They are the very epitome of loyalty, even in the most trying of circumstances, and often to the least deserving (although this might be a questionable virtue). But one does kind of wonder what Laura might mutter to herself from time to time.

By the way, if something is written, it is libel, not slander. Slander is spoken rather than written. The best defense against charges of libel or slander is for the writer or speaker to show that what he has written or said is true. If it's true, it's not libel, no matter how much you may not like it.

4)"I also never claimed to have answered it."//deny actual printed words and obfuscate. this exchange began with posts on the thread entitled "what's worse than bush in 2004" and if you reread posts all from 11/3 at 8:17AM, 10:54AM, 1:31PM, and 1:50PM you;ll see that the question was asked,pdq again challenges kendall's veracity, claims to have answered his direct question (quoting from the post"i was trying to be polite and answer a direct question"). Now oppose previous statements in a bald-faced manner.

5)"If *your* question is "what is an admirable quality of George W. Bush"//make up your own question to answer with pre-digested talking point generalized campaign language like"he has attempted to be inclusive and has tried to bring people together."

6)"But, as someone said long ago, "it takes two to tango".//continue to refer to and denigrate opposition even when the question specifically asked for responses that were not relative to the opposition parties or people

so back to the original query "what should we admire about george bush?". i have removed partisan opinion from the question as stated in the original post and distilled it to its essence. well, waddaya t'ink?

I think the bobcat story was worth wading through this whole thread.

With all due respect, the origional question was "Now, what should we admire about this loser (GW Bush) who never succeeded at anything in his life?"

Again, that is such a loaded question that I will not give a direct answer to it. Ask me a question about biology and you have a very good chance of a direct answer. If you have a question about etymology please ask Don Firth, he is much better at that than I am.

Amos-it sounded like that type of question to me, also. Thanks for the support. People who don't like GW can certainly vote against him. Only twelve months to go.....

as you can see in the beginning post to this thread, i quoted kendall's earlier question and then asked to leave the bias out and just give us some qualities to admire in GWB due to my own curiousity about that. i quote my original post beginning with kendall's quoted query...

"Now, what should we admire about this loser (GW Bush) who never succeeded at anything in his life?"
that shows some personal bias from the questioner so let's leave that alone and just tell us the things to admire about GWB without referring to bill clinton, the democrats, liberals, hypocrisy, etc. is this possible, bushbuddies out there?"

pdq contradicts himself again, refusing to answer the "loaded" question (not the question i asked to begin the thread, by the way) after earlier claiming to have politely answered the question. so i guess there won't be any serious answers to my seemingly simple question. well, nevermind then...

OK, so let's deal with the rephrased question I shall here posit: Given that George W Bush is a nice guy, which of his qualities do you most admire?

And if I may be so bold, I would like to say that I like his, uh, . . . back to you later.

Ah the question is what do we admire about him!? OhhhKayyy... let's see, no matter how big he screws up, nice folks with lots of cash cover up for him! Wouldn't we all like that to happen for us!?

Buttons would be pressed
rules would be broken,
strings would pulled
and magic words spoken,
invisable fingers would mold,
palaces of gold... (thanks Martin Carthy)

Oh, dear, oh, dear. Who to believe?? Bushites have never lied to us before.

From Reuters:

"The broad outline had to do with allowing as many as 2,000 U.S. agents, whether FBI (news - web sites) or scientists, to visit Iraq and verify the absence of weapons of mass destruction," he said, adding it came to include turning over Abdul Rahman Yasin, wanted in connection with the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

"This was to be in addition to concessions on oil deals for the United States, agreeing not to obstruct any U.S. peace deal in the Middle East and to having free elections within two years," he said.

Hage, an insurance executive educated in the United States, described the proposal as it unfolded to personal acquaintances in the Defense Department with the aim of reaching Richard Perle, an influential Pentagon adviser whom he himself met.

"I had met Richard through acquaintances in the past, and thought he'd be one of the people to pass it on to," he said of his March meeting with Perle, who he said seemed willing to at least hear the offer.

"He said he would meet with them but he needed approval of higher-ups in Washington," Hage said. "It came back that there was no interest in this proposal."

The White House said on Thursday it exhausted all peaceful opportunities before invading Iraq on March 20, without clarifying whether President Bush had been aware of the offer relayed by Hage.

He single-handed blows the theory of evolution out of the water merely by existing. Good news if you're a Creationist, I suppose. I suspect this may be how he got the right-wing fundamentalist vote! :)
