the bush speech
I listend to President Bush last night as he spoke about the problem of illegal immigration. But what I really liked were all the pundits arguing about whether Bush sounded "forceful" or "Presidential" enough in his speech. WTF??? THAT'S what the speech was all about?
I blame this crap on the "Bill Clintonization" of America. HE was the first politician to recognize that style mattered a lot more than substance today, (okay... maybe FDR and LBJ started that trend, but Clinton took it to warp-factor 9 and shot it right out of this world...) and he was a WONDERFUL lip-biter, tear-shedder and a MASTER of displaying false emotions. Some delusional people today think that he was a GREAT President.
He could talk for an hour about a problem and call it SOLVED without ever doing ANYTHING, except maybe lobbing a few missles at an aspirin factory in a place nobody ever heard of. I had him pegged exactly right when I once called him a crazed Drum Major, high-steppin' and waving a baton, pretending to lead the band without having a clue where the march was going.
Wimmen got wet in their panties listening to him speak, which lowered my opinion of wimmen in general, because the man was a serial sexual predator. He was a POSTER BOY for sexual harassment laws, but nobody cared, especially not wimmen. THAT reaction told me a lot about feminisim--- and it did NOT flatter feminists.
In MY humble opinion, Bush made that speech after studying at the feet of The Master. It was a GOOD lesson, too: Talk tough, do nothing, and rely on the short attention span of most Americans, ESPECIALLY WIMMEN, to guarantee that you get away with being full of sound and fury while signifying diddly-squat.
"We do not yet have full control of the border and I am determined to change that," the president said in pressing for his $1.9 billion plan in a 17-minute prime-time address from the Oval Office.
Uh.... the Federal Government managed to tell me how much water my fuckin' TOILET can flush, but it can't control our borders. The Federal Government can stop me from cutting the grass in my own got-dam YARD if an "endangered" sand-rat lives there, but it can't control our borders. The Federal Governmant can DEMAND that I drive a car with certain CAFE standards, bow in awe at the ANWR while NEVER drilling for oil there and pay an "Estate Tax" when I die, but it can't control our borders.
Is it just ME, or does anyone else see something terribly WRONG with this picture?
Wanna know what the Federal Government actually does for ME today? It takes my money with the shamelessness of a back-alley mugger, it tries to micro-manage my life at the molecular level, and it gives me "leaders" such as Henry Waxman, Hillary Clinton and Arlen Specter.
I believe that I prefer illegal immigrants over those clowns. And I now am convinced that President Bush isn't much better.
