Drunk Man Talking?

One more thing, and then I’ll get off the topic of whether Bush is drinking or not. If he doesn’t want people to think he’s hitting the bottle again, then he shouldn’t go around saying stuff like this.

Bush said: “You know, something we — I’ve been thinking a lot about how America has responded, and it’s clear to me that Americans value human life, and value every person as important. And that stands in stark contrast, by the way, to the terrorists we have to deal with. You see, we look at the destruction caused by Katrina, and our hearts break. They’re the kind of people who look at Katrina and wish they had caused it. We’re in a war against these people. It’s a war on terror. These are evil men who target the suffering. They killed 3,000 people on September the 11th, 2001. And they’ve continued to kill. See, sometimes we forget about the evil deeds of these people.”

The fuck he said?

From now on, ask him about Katrina, and he’ll say “Do you realize we were attacked on September 11th?” And why not? After all, it worked with Iraq. Didn’t it? Seriously though, if his audience weren’t hand-picked he’d be getting laughs in response to lines like this.

    I used to think he was a twenty-five watt bulb, but he seems to have faded down to a nightlight.

    Perhaps you missed: THIS.

    Our enemies really did celebrate the dead on our Gulf Coast.

    It’s worth pointing out the distinction between them and us, because it’s not even a little bit subtle or nuanced.

    I don’t believe Bush stopped drinking or drugging (he was a cocaine user), but the religious born-again spin was used to suggest he had. Worked pretty well, wouldn’t you say? Up until now, that is..

    he was a cocaine user
    I’m not sure “was” is the appropriate word to use. This little insight is from someone who really is a former cocaine user. I’ve been clean for 20 years now – and I know a user when I see one.

    I think the real shame is not that Bush is still using (I have no proof except my own eyes – if anyone else knows, speak up), but that so many people believed what he said, and not what he did. Enough to elect him twice.

    For Clint: the point isn’t that folks who hate us celebrated the hurricane. Heck, Pat Robertson claimed we were being punished for having Ellen DeGeneres hosting the Emmys.

    The point is the naked attempt to link Katrina to Al Qaeda. Were it not for the pattern of this administration, to the point of parody, which is to bring up 9/11 whenever they feel politically threatened, not to mention having made political hay by using 9/11 to smear those who disagreed with the Iraq war, you might have a point.

    For the Daily BJ: While down at his ranch, pre-Katrina, which is, I suspect a term which will come to describe the functional end of this presidency, Bush invited some of the media to a cookout. At which he drank non-alcoholic beer. Which, for those who don’t know, has alcohol in it. As a person in recovery, if I was working with anyone trying to stay sober, I would sadly advise them to revise their sobriety date if I found out they were drinking so-called non-alcoholic beer.
