I think Bush is driven by a number of things. Unfortunately, though, one of them is not intelligence. In a way he strikes me as a sociopathic version
of Inspector Jacques Clouseau of the Pink Panther movie series. When I hear him speak it affects me in much the same way as hearing someone run their
fingernails across a chalk board.
Anyway, he seems to me to be like a spoiled rich kid who never quite grew up. One who has always had his way and can’t deal with it otherwise. He
has his mind made up about issues, and if anyone else disagrees, then, like a child, he doesn’t want to play with them anymore. Accept it’s worse
than that; I believe he has a dark side that reveals itself in the face of opposition, and a little voice in his head that screams, “You wait!
You’ll be sorry for that!! Just wait and see!!!” I seriously doubt that GWB is interested at all in opposing views. He needs to learn to listen a
little more and stop cramming his agenda down everyone’s throat.
I also think GWB is driven by delusions of grandeur and is often not in touch with reality. He, accordingly, surrounds himself with a staff of goons
who obediently agree with everything he espouses, no matter how ludicrous or dangerous. I think he is more concerned about being in the history books
as a macho wartime President than he is with advancing the plight of Humanity and making this a better world for us to live.
The thing that alarmed me the most, and made me distrustful of his agenda, was when he came before the Nation, and the entire World, and blatantly
lied over and over again about Iraq and the reasons we had no other option but to make a pre-emptive strike. I knew it was a crock then, and ever
since have felt that GWB has blood on his hands. I’ll never get over how he was able to get away with that, and how the American people have
knowingly ignored all the lies that were told; lies that resulted in thousands of lives lost; and yet we voted him back in for a 2nd term! It’s
So, in conclusion, I believe what drives GWB is whatever advances his self-serving agenda. Smarts has little to do with it …
