President: n. the Current sociopathic Occupant – only 7 more days!!!!
Yesterday W gave his last formal presser as Current Occupant. And it was a doozy of denial. Here are my three favorite excerpts (“favorite” meaning “WTF??? – did he really say that??”):
Clearly putting a “Mission Accomplished” on a aircraft carrier was a mistake … Obviously, some of my rhetoric has been a mistake.
Uh, yeah – like “rhetoric” was the only problem…
Or, if not mistakes, disappointments:
Abu Ghraib obviously was a huge disappointment during the presidency. Not having weapons of mass destruction was a significant disappointment. I don’t know if you want to call those mistakes or not, but they were — things didn’t go according to plan, let’s put it that way.
Me too. I was sooo disappointed there weren’t any WMDs. And that those renegades soldiers at Abu Ghraib got found out.
On the need to restore our moral standing in the world:
It may be damaged amongst some of the elite … My view is, is that most people around the world, they respect America. And some of them doesn’t like me, I understand that — some of the writers and the, you know, opiners and all that. That’s fine, that’s part of the deal. But I’m more concerned about the country and our — how people view the United States.
It’s gonna be a rude awakening when you get out from that bubble George. Or maybe not – maybe we’ve misunderestimated the depth of your denial.
