does bush own a fiddle?

After the second tower was hit, he continued reading a children’s book. As New Orleans descended into chaos, he strummed a guitar before aides hastily assembled a fly over in Air Force One.

Since Georgia was invaded, Bush attended swimming, basketball and beach volleyball matches in Beijing.

Yet people insist on defending him. “At least he had the balls to stand up to them Muslims,” they’ll often say. What about the Russians? Or the Chinese? He’s afraid to sneeze in their presence. As for Lebanon, well, best of luck against those Islamic terrorists.

Does that make him a pussy? I don’t know, but it sure as hell makes him impotent. And easily overwhelmed.

Remember this notorious 1999 interview in which Bush couldn’t name the leaders of India and Pakistan, among others?

Imagine if Obama failed such a pop quiz. When Bush did it, his supporters complained about gotcha journalism.

We were warned.

    Well we aren’t going to war with Russia, China buys our debt and keeps us going so the American consumer can continue to go deeper into debt buying goods made in China.

    Lebanon leads to Syria which leads to Iran and you know where we stand on that. It is not necessarily Bush, but the will of the American people.

    Plus where are the peaceniks – shouldn’t they be upset about Russias attack on Georgia – the not on our watch people.

    But they are the same types who trust AmiJihad over Bush anyway.

  2. Presidents lead, and Bush is apparently incapable. His performance this week would be bigger news if not so typical.

  3. There is one key difference: Putin was also hanging out in Beijing, and the two “met” after an official dinner of some sort. Regardless of Putin’s status in Russia (still the boss, IMO), such a meeting is better than usual.

    So, maybe Bush got a (Russian Orthodox) cross to take home as a souvenir.

    ic ATL: I’ve actually read a few posts by Socialist-types, which aim at Russia the sanctimony usually reserved for the U.S. It’s music to my ears.
