Far Beyond Stupid
Does he make mistakes because he lacks the sufficient skill to manage his position, or does he make decisions selfishly, with kindless indifference towards those outside his own "circle of friends"?
Looking at George W. Bush, there certainly are plenty of examples which illustrate the man's imprudence. Everytime he talks, we are subjected to the gorked malapropisms of a half-witted boob. There are countless websites and books highlighting Bush's penchant for foot-in-mouth. Yes, the man is stupid. If his name wasn't George W. Bush, and his father wasn't President George H. W. Bush, this man never sees the inside of the White House without a ticket and an usher.
But is that it? Is he just stupid? Or is there a heartless son-of-a-bitch underneath the veneer or duncery?
At first glance, it may seem hard to tell.
But when all signs point to a war in Iraq that is so unwinnable that the current "stay the course" policy seems to be trumped by the common housefly's "repetitive-crash-into-same-glass-window" exit strategy, one must wonder whether Bush is genuinely that fucking stupid.
Looking back, there is no way in hell he could have genuinely believed that we would be greeted in Iraq as liberators. No fucking way. He can't be that dumb.
There is no way that he could have reasonably believed that Iraq was trying to acquire fissile material from Niger. No way.
There is no way he could have believed we are in the "last throes" of the insurgency. No way.
There is no way he could have believed Iraq was friendly with al-Qaeda prior to the American invasion. Nope.
There is no fucking way in hell that he could have genuinely believed that Iraq was an immediate threat to attack us. NO WAY IN HELL!
There is no way he can try to say that they "never expected" that terrorists would fly planes into buildings. Yeah right!
As Bush said so eloquently, "There's an old saying in Tennessee — I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again."
In other words, fool us once...We can't get fooled again.
Certainly, he must know that this war in Iraq is a lost cause. Barring a miracle, Iraq will either fall into a full-blown civil war or the war will spill-over into neighboring Syria or Iran. Perhaps a combination of these events will take place.
In light of the layers upon layers of obvious pulp fiction, coupled with the administration's shameless profiteering and constant desire to support torture and confiscate civil liberties, there should be no doubt. We can't get fooled again. George W. Bush is beyond the realm of stupidity.
The fucker is downright sinister.
