George W. Bush. Total fucking idiot.


From a recent presidential press conference, we have
the transcript, with the following revealing excerpt regarding Social Security:

So, to give you an example, in 2027, the system will be $200 billion short. In other words, they collect X amount of payroll taxes, but because baby boomers like me are living longer and have been promised greater benefits, we're $200 billion short that year -- that year. And the next year is bigger than $200 billion. In 3037 [sic}, it's like $300 billion. And finally in -- 2037, it's $300 billion. In 2042, it's bust. Those are the facts.

George W. is a total fucking idiot. And that's a fact.

So what? I fail to see what makes him an idiot any more than you.

Also, is there a specific reason why you care? This really won't effect you at all, will it?

Dizzy Gillespie said...

Oooh, I see. He made a speach blooper. Hasen't everybody though?

I mean, I'm sure Clinton had a few of those in his time. And I know Hillary has. Like the one "I'm really enjoying being Pres...I mean the Senator from New York".

Does that mean she's a F***ing idiot?

Well Dizzy, Bush is so well known for his 'bloopers' they call them Bushisms. Day calenders of them make great christmas presents.

This is also a reason why his handlers never allow him to take unscreened questions. Bush Sr had 144 press conferences during his presidency.
His son had only managed 12 by like may of 2004.

Most observers certainly debate watchers would agree that Bush is not the ideal public speaker.

My dear uneducated, annoying Mr. Gillespie:

I write that President McChimpster is a total fucking idiot because he still claims (as I'm assuming you can read) that, come 2042, the Social Security program will be "bust".

Now, as I and many, many, many, MANY others have shown, it is simply not possible (read that again: "not possible") for Social Security to go broke. It can't happen. Period. Full stop. End of sentence.

Ergo, thusly, and Q.E.D., you are left with one of only two possibilities:

1. George Bush is a total fucking idiot.
2. George Bush is a complete liar.

Those are your only two choices. Pick one.

This is not, as you so wistfully write, a "blooper". Now, if you really want to contribute to this discussion, let me give you a homework assignment: Prove how it is possible for the Social Security system to go "bust". Define "bust". Show your work. Then we can talk.

Oh, Jesus, Mary, Mother of God, you have to be kidding. Apparently, I have inherited "Son of Gatsby". What can I say?

At least Mr. Gillespie had the sense to take my advice and rename his blog. Good choice. Sadly, it's all downhill from there, as Mr. Gillespie bites off way more than he can chew and writes his first meaningful post about (yes, you guessed it) Social Security.

In part, Mr. Gillespie writes:

"Sure, the years 2042 seem far off to many, but that is precisely the time that people like me will start to retire. That is also the time that Social Security will fail. See my problem?" (Emphasis added.)

Yes, yes, I do. You're an idiot. And I'm pretty sure it's time to start deleting subsequent comments here. I don't allow Mr. Gatsby to post here, and I'm pretty sure I'm not going to allow him to do it by proxy, either.

If anyone wants to go over to Mr. Gillespie's blog and leave a note or two, by all means, feel free. I really have better things to do. But if Mr. Gillespie wants something to work on that might rock his little world, let me give him something to think about.

In his SS-related posting, Gillespie uses a common right-wing scare tactic when he writes:

"When Social Security was designed 16 workers were paying to the system to support on [sic] beneficiary. Now, that number is more like 3 workers."

Really? In that case, Mr. Gillespie, why is it then that, at this very moment, as we speak, Social Security is actually making a profit? That is, right now, why is it that SS is currently taking in more than it is paying out so that its trust fund is actually growing?

That's your assignment. If you have an answer, feel free to post it at your own blog and, if it's meaningful, hey, I'll even link to it. Or you can pull a Gatsby, get all childish and petulant, change the subject and claim victory.

Your choice.

Can you please not isult me like that?

Come on, CC, people will begin to think that your blathering nonsense retorts might be covering something up.

After all, insulting your opponent often means that you have a lack of intellegent substance...

Ditzy G. Pleeeese. A speach blooper? Like one? The guy can't articulate shit and people like yourself defend him. Dude you are smart, he is not. That is all there is to it. America voted in a complete dummy and it really sucks. You must see this as a problem. The leader of the free world still says nucular after its pointed out by his wife. This guy is a joke and the world hates us yet out of some partisan or patriotic ideal he is defended by those in denile; George W Bush is a total fucking idiot! Not because he cant speak, that is just a symptom of being dumb, it only exposes him. If we gave every reason it would turn into War and Peace. All I know is it sucks having a dummy leading us and then watching him try to cover his dumb ass decisions with lie after lie.

George W. Bush is a caricature of himself. SNL can't improve on Bush's own words. He writes his own material. Check this website for a laugh - www.sicpuzzles.com.
