"Open The Door For Your Mystery Date...", Dept.

Bush Vetoes Bill Tying Iraq Funds to Exit - New York Times

Who's my widdel bully-boy? Hmm? Who's my widdel-piddel bully-boy? Is it you-ums? Is you my widdel bully-boy?

Yeah, so this gormless cunt has dug in his cowboy heels and said nonononoNO to setting a timetable for withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq. But, hey, what the fuck, y'know? It'll only be a thousand more dead Americans before the utter failure of Das Surge becomes manifestly obvious even to fetuses and pets. Two thousand, at the most.

What I luv is what he had to say in justifying his macho bullshit carefully-considered decision: "Setting a deadline for withdrawal is setting a date for failure, and that would be irresponsible."

Who can argue with that? I mean, who wants to set a date for failure? Not Georgie-Porge. 'Cause he so obviously has had a standing date with success for quite some time now. Just a matter of synching up their schedules, y'see.

Well, not quite a "standing date with success", more like a blind date with success.

Okay, not really a "blind date with success". More like he met someone with the handle "hotsucksess69" online and they're due to meet in a motel outside Scranton next week for some light bondage and piss-play.

And, really: three thousand.
Three thousand, tops.

Off of so ya don't think I made it up:

"By the way, in the report it said, it is -- the government may have to put in more troops to be able to get to that position. And that's what we do. We put in more troops to get to a position where we can be in some other place. The question is, who ought to make that decision? The Congress or the commanders? And as you know, my position is clear -- I'm the commander guy.

Yes, sir. "

Good find on that press release. A classic softball crowd, "What can we do for you, Mister President, besides pray to the One True God and tell our neighbors about the many close links between Saddam and Al-Qaeda?"

I can't tell if he was talking down to an audience of contractors in his "reg'lar feller" voice or if that's the voice he always uses in public. But it reminds me of something Jon Stewart said to Bill Moyers in a recent interview to the effect that everyone has been criticizing and ridiculing Bush and his staff as idiots and incompetents, etc., but that allowing them to play that role in public lets them off the hook for the responsibility of doing and saying the things they do.

If nothing else, GWB is an educated man. He's not Fred the Farmhand. If he says, "I'm the commander guy", he's either condescending to his audience or he's suffered blunt head trauma about which we, the American people, have heard nothing.
