The nation simply wouldn’t survive another incompetent, arrogant, ignorant, extremist in the White House. As hard as it is to imagine, I think Rick Perry is an amplified version of everything I find horrifying and detestable in George W. Bush!
Ten years ago, this is what the buffoon had to say:
CRAWFORD, Tex., Aug. 24 — President Bush said today that there was a benefit to the government’s fast-dwindling surplus, declaring that it would create “a fiscal straitjacket for Congress.” He said that was “incredibly positive news” because it would halt the growth of the Federal government.
In a 45-minute news conference in a community hall next to a recreational-vehicle park here, Mr. Bush avoided giving specific answers to several questions about how he would find the money for his next big initiatives — from missile defense, to overhauling the military, to reforming Medicaid — without dipping into Social Security surpluses that both parties have declared off-limits. And he made it clear he would not re-think his tax cut, saying, “I can’t tell you how proud I am to be traveling around the country and people say, `Thanks for the $600.’ ”
At the same time, Mr. Bush talked in some detail about the economic slowdown, which he called a “correction,” and left open the possibility that he might dip into the Social Security surplus if a further economic stimulus was needed.
“I’ve said that the only reason we should use Social Security funds is in the case of an economic recession or war,” Mr. Bush said.

I agree with Tara, who shared this at Dangerous Minds, we need a high resolution version of this for every desktop in the country.

No, I don’t want a president that’s another beer-drinkin’, gun-shootin’, just-like-us, ignorant, good-ole-boy that can’t form a complete sentence. I want a president that will carefully weigh all of the options on the table to get this nation out of the mess George W. Bush and Dick Cheney created with their deregulate, markets know best, bomb them first, drink oil for breakfast, lunch, and dinner mentality.
