Hello. I'm in a ranting mood, so here goes.
President Bush is dumb.
1) GW, the former gov. of Texas, is told there is an energy crisis. What's his forward thinking solution? "Drill for oil, DUH!" So everybody asks "Where George?". His response? "How about a wildlife preserve? I mean, no one's using it." That's the idea NUMBSKULL! That's why it's called a PRESERVE! Gees, you can practically SEE the oil exec's hand up his butt making him talk!
2) Dubya is told California is suffering power shortages and need federal assistance. His response? "They didn't vote for me? Why should I help them? That's their problem." Well, think about this George. California is now the FIFTH LARGEST ECONOMY IN THE WORLD! 75% of the country's tax revenue comes from California. So if we're left to hang in the wind as the lights go out what do you think that will do for the rest of you? Idiot.
3) George has decided the country needs to drop $25 BILLION on a missile defense shield. What the hell for?!?!? I'm just some shmoe and I could tell you that we face a bigger threat from hostile parties smuggling any variety of NBC weapons into the country. Look at it this way George, some third world dictator decides to he wants to kill a whole mess of Americans. His whole country has a GNP equal to a McDonalds fry cook's pay check. What's he more likely to do? Starve his country even more to fund a ballistic missile program or find some fanatical nationalist to take a motor boat into LA harbor and detonate a warhead bought off the black market? Hmmm, that is a tough one.
Oh, let's not forget that the Russians feel this little missile shield of yours is am arms reduction treaty violation and have promised to update their arsenal to be capable of evading your new toy. Bummer.
For this fool to be in office less than a year and all ready find so many ways to screw things up and piss people off is truly amazing.
Okay, I'm done. Let me have it.
