I'm taking an informal survey . . .

since my so-called President is saying that we don't torture people and that his standing definition of torture is only something that causes major organ failure or imminent death.

1) Is my President . . .

A) a blithering idiot?

B) lacking complete touch with the world?

C) a total fuckwit?

D) thinking that membership in the SS is still open?

More than 30 years ago, I thought the world was balanced on its pointy head because our then-soon-to-be-ex-President lied to Congress, covered up a break-in and kept an enemies list with the intent of sending G. Gordon Liddy and others out to keep its members in line.

Now I have a President whose attorney general has a demeanor quite similar in banality and lack of moral fiber to that of Heinrich Himmler. I wonder if Alberto got himself through law school raising chickens, and if Karl Rove got special shoes to clear up that club foot?

F) Needs to be spend the next 40 years being tortured by the CIA.
I know, it's not very tolerant, but I am allowed one of these thoughts each week.

This is the same guy who defined a hunger strike as a "terrorist attack on America."

As Graydon Carter said:

“We have a president who continues to argue the fine points of what is, or is not, torture. (Remember those balmy, simpler days of our youth when we had a president who quibbled over what is, or is not, sex?). And on this, the fifth anniversary of 9/11, perhaps it’s time to review the administration’s assertion that that was the day the world changed. It really wasn’t; 9/12 was. That was the day the neocons in the White House began using this devastating attack on American soil to further their own dreams of taking over Iraq. That was the day the world began its downward spiral. That was the day the administration began plotting to remove a dictator over there and to create one here.”

E - all of the above, but I lean most towards C because it's my favorite word.

Love option F - don't care that it's cruel and intolerant. It's all about the Karma baby!

How's about option G) Fuckwit Wanna-Be Nazi With Delusions of Grandeur and Intellect?

"Power has a way of undermining judgment, of planting delusions of grandeur in the minds of otherwise sensible people and otherwise sensible nations." - Senator J. William Fulbright, 1966

Choosing to vote for *** was like choosing to elect a werewolf dogcatcher.

The Republicans are running desperate mid-term campaigns and basically they'll do anything it takes. Including repudiating ***.

But with any luck they aren't fooling anyone, and January 2007 will bring the Writ of Impeachment.

If there's any true justice in the world his post-retirement security won't be the responsibility of the Treasury Department, but the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

C'mon,
the guy has an MBA from Harvard!
I think that he is just getting some bad advice...

Yeah, just like the bad advice Hitler got from Bormann, Himmler, Goebbels et al. >B^D>

He certainly does NOT have an MBA from Harvard. He has the "gentleman's C" and he got it at Yale in a History BA. Very different indeed.

Scary - I have a BA in history too, but at least I had a B average.

President Bush was born on July 6, 1946, in New Haven, Connecticut, and grew up in Midland and Houston, Texas. He received a bachelor’s degree in history from Yale University in 1968, and then served as an F-102 fighter pilot in the Texas Air National Guard. President Bush received a Master of Business Administration from Harvard Business School in 1975.

I got this from his biography

Is this wrong?
