I can't help but laugh when I read this, half are just so stupid and the other half is him telling what illegal things he did and nobody even caring. This is just insane.

I read them and don't really see him admitting anything.

In fact, he just simply says things incorrectly, he forgets entire sections of the "phrase" or whatever so his statements sound messed up.

I think the way he talks is really funny though.

Look every President is the same, they screw my life over. So at least Bush was so ridiculous that I couldn't stop laughing about him.

Obama is just not as funny as Bush was. Obama is boring as hell, actually.

So if i could pick between a boring president that ruins my life, or a funny hilarious president that ruins my life, im going with the funny one.

Perfect example of how funny Bush can be!



ROFL!

*YAWN*

More backward looking blame games against the previous administration when we already have quite a track record to discuss on the current obama administration.

And it is pitiful, even, to watch obama do the same thing to explain his own lack of performance. Even more telling was watching obama try to blame the loss of "the people's seat" in Mass. on Bush.

Prediction:
After being defeated in the 2012 election, obama spends the remainder of his life blaming everyone but himself for the failures of his administration. Just like jimmy carter still does.

I don't know that this was posted for the purpose of focusing on the past so much as it was a much needed moment of humour and levity on ATS. Regardless of your oppinion of Bush the list is pretty funny. I don't myself see him admitting much of anything other than he gets tongue tied up in front of crowds. lol

Nice post OP

Cheers

Bush was just a scapegoat. He wasn't the one that decided to attack Iraq, Dick Cheney did. It's a bit obvious if you reflect over Bush's quotes and Cheney's.

moon,mars and venus bases,oh and the Sargasso sea base always votes democrat.
add Puerto Rico and Guam that's 56(i know they aren't states but he was thinking out loud)they aren't classified but few americans realize they exist.
