From: GUEST,guest from NW
Date: 02 Nov 03 - 09:29 PM

since no one from the republican/GWB faction cared to answer the direct query posed by kendall in the thread "what's worse than bush in 2004" (tho pdq claimed he responded) i thought i'd start a thread on it and see if anyone could give a list of dubya's admirable qualities. i'm truly curious because personally i see nothing in his attitude, demeanor, resume, or policies that i would admire. this was the question from the previous thread...

"Now, what should we admire about this loser (GW Bush) who never succeeded at anything in his life?"

that shows some personal bias from the questioner so let's leave that alone and just tell us the things to admire about GWB without referring to bill clinton, the democrats, liberals, hypocrisy, etc. is this possible, bushbuddies out there?

He lies well! Hey, Clinton didn't! It takes a very special person to stand before a camera an' lie so convincingly. Sure, every one listening is saying "He's lieing" to themselves but most also mutter, "Yeah, but its as if he believes it."

Admirable? He seems to wear a clean shirt every day and he seems to have a nice ranch, and he seems to have his pecker under control (or someone does, anyway).
He's toilet-trained, as far as I know.

He's not personally violent -- he likes to use others.

I'll get back to you on this. There might be a couple of other things....he shaves good...

Dubya gives good return on investment. Contributors gave his campaign $100,000,000+ to run for President in 2000. In less than 3 years, he gave them back $350,000,000,000+ in tax relief. That's a return of 3500 to 1 folks. You don't find investments like that everyday. Granted, the deficit will eventually have to be repaid, but by then someone else will be stuck with it.

He's managed to convince a majority of the American people that he is the right man for the job of President of the USA. That's some bullshit artist. It's like me saying I would be a good manager of our state's highways, when all I know is that there are stripes in the middle.

Some people have changed their minds, I only hope it's enough to keep this sawed-off little prick from winning another term. I am not optimistic. One lady I work with stated that the nine Democratic candidates should have been killed in the WTC disaster, because they voiced their opposition to the Shrub and his policies. I am very fearful for American society. Thanks, BlueJay

Whenever I've seen his feet he's been wearing shoes.

His wife's a librarian.

He's never been found in the Tidal Basin with a stripper.

I don't think he smokes cigars, and if he chews tobacco he doesn't dribble it down his chin.

He is as good a President as Reagan ever was.

A great quote from someone responding to an opponent: "Your position is so ill thought out that it does not even constitute a point of view." George W is a quantity to which no qualities of any kind can adhere -- he is the absence of presence, a moral nullity, a void where a man should be, a blank canvas upon which his masters paint their dark pictures, a hamstrung puppet, a cavernous echo for other voices, an empty vessel into which foolishness is poured, pressed down, and overfloweth, a disappearing trick from a rabbitless hat, he is not worth the invisible ink spilt in describing the lack of a there, there.

yours,

Peter T.

He's blind to criticism.

When he visits Britain from 19-21 November he will have to demonstrate this quality substantially. Demonstrations everywhere he goes and a mass rally in Trafalgar Square where a "statue" of him will be toppled. Should be fun!!

Molly Ivins was on Wait Wait Don't Tell Me! (on NPR) over the weekend, and said that she find's Bush "affable." Not a good leader, mind you, but always affable. Her view is that grown-ups can like someone and still think "boy, is that ever a bad idea, he shouldn't be doing that job." Like Bush doing the presidency.

Affability doesn't cut it. Mister Hitler was once called charming in the American press. Any psycho worth his salt can muster up a persuasive social machine. That's no way to measure the merit of the man, or lack of it.

An old "Wizard of Id" (cartoon) strip ran like this. Two soldiers are marching in a long line. First soldier: "Are we advancing or retreating?" Second soldier: "Where's Sir Rodney?" First soldier: "In front." Second soldier: "Then we are retreating."

I may disagree with some of GWB's decisions. But at least he by God made them. He never sent out his flunkies with a hundred questionaires to find out which way the "political wind" was blowing before he decided whether to lead or to follow. Ridicule him if you want, that is one of the great freedoms we have in America that makes this country great.

I just wonder what would have happened if Clinton had the political nerve to take Osama bin Laden when he had the chance, but refused because he was advised that it would be seen a politically risky move in certain parts of the mid-East.

Remember Jimmy Carter?

I do disagree with some of GWB's decisions, come to think of it. At least he is a president that gives me that opportunity.

humbly,

Freightdawg

That's what puzzles me - I can imagine, at least in theory, how someone might like the way he does the job, and think he's what America and the world needs right now - it takes all sorts. (For example, a lot of people here admired Thatcher, close to idolatry in some cases, but I think there were very few people actually "liked" her.)

But liking Bush - that's a bit mind-boggling. He'd be the kind of next door neighbour that would make me use the back door in case I ran into him, even if we shared the same political views down the line. That kind of remark by that lady there is the sort that brings it home how wide the Atlantic can be, because it seems pretty clear that is how a lot of Americans do see it.

...

However, looking on the bright side, he'll make a splendid effigy omn bonfire up and down England on the Fifth of November.

Actually, those who have been inside the White House inner circle come out reporting that aboslutely everything, everything, everything is based on the direction of the political wind. They report that there is no overriding foreign, nor domestic policy, only a continual re-election campaign.

Bush's most admirable quality, imho, is that he shows us how little importance the American public places upon scholarship and conscience, the wellbeing of the advantages-challenged here at home, and honesty... when it comes to selecting it's politicians and statesmen... Bush is no 'stand alone', but a product of our ambiguous American culture, and what he represents is as confusing to me as Bartok... but by golly... he sure is teaching us alot about ourselves...
