in the papers a couple weeks ago:
Quote:
"You have a real choice in this election. Either Democrat would be better than John McCain," Obama said to cheers from a rowdy crowd in central Pennsylvania. Then he said: "And all three of us would be better than George Bush."
I think it's a popular sentiment.

Harry Paget Flashman Points to Colonel Flagg who one-upped me in private.

Non sequitur city

There once was a Non-sequitor city
Where spelling was singularly shitty
And though it does not follow dear Colonel
That that your post was infernal
It did give rise to this ditty.

Colonel Flagg Whining about Congress again. Why doesn't he step up to the plate and work WITH the Senate and House for a change?

We can all help by recycling. Why toss a used tire into the landfill when you can burn it in your fire place in the Winter?
Wow. Non-sequitor city.

Tadao No one really cares about the "sacrifices" of our freedoms we gave up during his reign? You guys remember that daddy was head of the CIA before he was vice president to Reagan right?

Colonel Flagg With all due respect, I look at it as a legacy that took our dependence on foreign oil to new heights. Rather than demand improved fuel efficiency from car manufacturers and encouraging research in alternative propulsion and alternative energy, he instead whined about Congress not allowing him to drill a hole in every nature preserve looking for more oil. This is not the legacy of a leader, but that of a puppet.

And Exxon/Mobil set another record for profits in a quarter. Everyone happy about that?

Harry Paget Flashman Bush's legacy will be that he never got any drilling done in ANWR or in the Florida littoral. With gasoline at $3.50 and rising it is a sorry legacy. Does anybody know the utility of narwhal, manatee and caribou in bio-diesel manufacture? I'm thinking that they are at least a renewable resource being mammals and all.

Bingo!

Tadao Men of Oil do not squirm.

Dr. Boogie I don't think he'll do too much squirming trying to justify himself. I think what we'll see is that there will be two separate histories: one that remembers him fondly, and one based on actual events. He'll just stick to only doing functions for those that were supportive of him through and through, and he'll likely end his life comfortably and sure of himself.

Really, I think the only kind of backlash story we can expect is some nut throwing a pie at him, or some similar event.




But I'm no pessimist.

Colonel Flagg Any "G-Dub" memoir would have to be ghost-written. He has the writing capacity of my 5-year-old daughter, and much less ability in the way of thoughtful dialogue.

I read somewhere that they tried to estimate the IQ's of the presidents over the past 40 years or so judging only by the quality of their attributed writings. They had a lot of trouble finding enough writings attributable solely to Jr. , but the estimate was by far and away the lowest in recent history.

I'm not surprised.
Apr 25th, 2008 02:47 PM
Grislygus I really, really like the idea of Bush squirming and flaccidly trying to justify himself for the rest of his life.

Here's to the hope of memoirs!

I'm not talking about the next president. What I'm talking about is how this president is going to look in retrospect.
