George W. Bush

Bush insults seniors, our intelligence

Flippin' questions!  Gosh!

From today's press conference, via AmericaBlog.

Q I never got my billion --

THE PRESIDENT: Yes. Because you're not a senior citizen yet. Acting like one, however. Go ahead. (Laughter.)

Q What is there about government that makes it hard --

THE PRESIDENT: Faulty memory. (Laughter.) Go ahead. (Laughter.)

Alzheimer's jokes are hilarious! Score!

Overall, Bush's performance was more petulant, arrogant, evasive, uninformed, and insulting than any Bush press conference I can recall. How can anyone have seen that 45 minute farce and come away feeling proud of this man? Partisanship, policy, and ideology aside, his demeanor wasn't that of "the common man", as his supporters use as an excuse.

He was Napoleon Dynamite with more smirking. And less charm.
