'W' is for Dubya

The George Bush Page.

I'm sorry. In a moment of weakness I gave in to temptation and allowed Dubya a page to himself. And I'm going to keep it. Well, if he can get elected TWICE... Most of this material has been brought together from the Bells and Whistles, Caption, and Pinko Songbook pages. I've left Georgie Boy in charge of the Interactive Caption. After all, he'll be looking for something to do now he's at long last left the White House. Good luck to his successor by the way. We certainly need someone with a very large mop and bucket to clean up after Dubya.

I have as recently as January 2014 added a small pictorial feature dedicated to the lovely CONDOLEEZZA RICE. Her political/military story is celebrated in music on The Pinko Songbook page. The song Condoleezza is sung by Brendan Barker.

The first thing on this page used to be what was at the time a new (to me) cartoon. Then there's what used to be Georgie's bathtime song (now he harmlessly blows Dubya Bubbles). The bathtime song was BATTLE HYMN OF THE REPUBLICANS of course. The last two Pinko Songs, took as their focus George's carefully-thought out foreign policies. These were SYRIA'S LEADER. (For Syria, insert Iran, Saudi Arabia, The Isle of Wight, or wherever he wanted 'regime change' that particular week) and WHERE IS SYRIA. However, in view of the hell that Assad and 'the oposition' are now inflicting on their country, I've decided to remove these. This isn't a suggestion that everything would now be well if we'd tolerated all of his foreign policies in 2003. Then there is something brazenly taken from the Captions page. This page is then rounded off with a Latin American joke - well, I HOPE it's a joke and not a thrilling example of Dubya's adventures with the English language

THE BATTLE HYMN OF THE REPUBLICANS
Tune

                                                  We're off to downtown Baghdad
                                                  for the winning of the oil;
                                                  forget these awkward pinkos and their one-four-four-one.

                                                  We'll be trampling soon on poor Iraqi soil,
                                                  we have loosed our fateful lightning
                                                  and our troops are on the boil;
                                                  our youth is marching on.

                                                  Glory! Glory! Bush to conquer!
                                                  Glory! Glory! Bush to conquer!
                                                  Glory! Glory! Bush to conquer!
                                                  Our oil is marching on.

                                                  I have seen Blix on the TV
                                                  and he makes no sense to me.
                                                  The French are French, the Germans blench;
                                                  this United Nation is the only place to be.

                                                  I'll rule the world before too long,
                                                  just you wait and see.
                                                  Then I'll be marching on.

                                                  Glory! Glory! Bush to conquer!
                                                  Glory! Glory! Bush to conquer!
                                                  Glory! Glory! Bush to conquer!
                                                  Our oil is marching on.

Helping US exports to France.There must be a better way. There probably is. Pity that the American voters didn't think of it in November, 2004.

Maybe this one doesn't need a caption?

This is the presidential joke (or accurate documentary recording; I haven't been able to decide):

Donald Rumsfeld is giving the president his daily briefing. He concludes by saying:
"Yesterday, three Brazilian soldiers were killed in an accident'
"OH NO!" the President exclaims. "That's terrible!"
His staff sits stunned at this display of emotion, nervously watching as the president sits, head in hands.
Finally, the President looks up and asks...
'How many is a Brazillion ??!'

This apparently verbatim quote came to me from Tecwen Vaughan Jones, Trinity College, Carmarthen, by way of Robert Nisbet

Bush Explains Medicare Drug Bill
WOMAN IN AUDIENCE: 'I don't really understand. How is it the new plan going to fix the problem?'
Verbatim response (PRESIDENT BUSH): BUSH: 'Because the -- all which is on the table begins to address the big cost drivers. For example, how benefits are calculated, for example, is on the table. Whether or not benefits rise based upon wage increases or price increases. There's a series of parts of the formula that are being considered. And when you couple that, those different cost drivers, affecting those -- changing those with personal accounts, the idea is to get what has been promised more likely to be -- or closer delivered to that has been promised. Does that make any sense to you? It's kind of muddled. Look, there's a series of things that cause the -- like, for example, benefits are calculated based upon the increase of wages, as opposed to the increase of prices. Some have suggested that we calculate -- the benefits will rise based upon inflation, supposed to wage increases. There is a reform that would help solve the red if that were put into effect. In other words, how fast benefits grow, how fast the promised benefits grow, if those -- if that growth is affected, it will help on the red.'
