When the devil comes, he’ll come wearing his good suit and a charming, compassionate smile.
Junior made a speech yesterday at Concordia University in Wisconsin that I’m glad I didn’t see or hear because just reading the text made me gag. George W Bush must be running for president again because, as faithful Elizabeth Bumiller reports, he just dragged his ‘compassionate conservative’ routine out of the closet where it’s been in mothballs for the last 3 1/2 years.
George W Bush is the president of the United States. This what he said. This is what the man who has refused to take responsibility for any decision he’s ever made, the man who has blamed previous presidents and underlings and anyone else who happened to be handy, said. This is what George W Bush said.He said, ‘One person can do so much harm, or so much good.’
That is what he said. That is what George W Bush said. He said, ‘One person can show the compassion and character of a whole country in an hour of testing. Never doubt that you can make a difference, because the call that comes to you is yours alone.’
George W Bush is the president of the United States. This what he said. This is what the man who has stolen from the Social Security Fund, used seniors to enrich the pharmaceutical industry on the pretext of lowering their drug costs, refused to fund his own ‘No Child Left Behind’ Act, cut Section 8 funds, cut the school lunch program, cut the low-income fuel program, and insisted on a tax cut for the richest of his campaign contributors said.
He said, ‘Our worth as human beings does not depend on our health, or productivity, or independence, or any other shifting value the world might apply.’
That is what he said. That is what George W Bush said. He said, ‘Nothing good or just can be built on the destruction or suffering of others.’
George W Bush is the president of the United States. This what he said. This is what the man who has turned government agencies over to the industries and corporations they’re supposed to regulate, allowed industry lobbyists to write the laws affecting their employers, turned the Dept of Energy into the Dept of Oil and Natural Gas Exploitation on behalf of his contributors, promised to support the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program and then cut it by $$300Million$$, promised to support Americorps snd then cut its funding, promised to support the Boys’ and Girls’ Clubs of America and then cut their funding, promised to support the HeadStart Program and then cut its funding, promised $20Bil in relief to NYC after 9/11 and then cut it out of his budget, promised $15Bil to AIDS programs in Africa and then cut it to $3B and made it contingent on their having to buy their drugs at premium prices from US firms, said. This is what George W Bush said.
He said, ‘America needs your efforts and energy in the fight against poverty and despair. A compassionate society does not look away from a man being dragged down by addiction, or a mother being abandoned by the father of the child, or boys and girls with no role models in life, who wonder if anyone cares about them.’
That is what he said. that is what George W Bush said. He said, ‘America rejects the ethic of sink or swim. America rejects social Darwinism, because strength is not the same as worth.’
George W Bush is the president of the United States. This what he said. This is what the man who started a war for no reason said. This is what George W Bush said.
He said, “I want to be your president [because] I have a reason to run: we have a war to win.”
That is what he said.
It was a beautifully-written speech. There was only one problem with it.
Everything he said in it was a lie.
After the speech was over, he went to a fund-raiser and collected another $2.2Mil for his campaign from the oligarchs who know which side he’s on no matter what he says in public.
George W Bush:
When the devil comes, he will come wearing his good suit, smiling, and promising whatever you want him to promise. But one hand will be behind his back and his fingers will be crossed.
