Bush self loathes

I found this a weird moment in the press conference this morning. (Starts at 1:15.)


  • The man is devoid of any sense of leadership or responsibility. Any bad event, or state of affairs, is not his fault. He doesn't make bad decisions. He doesn't make mistakes (other than putting his faith in people who end up "disappointing" him)... Bad things just "happen" on his watch... mere coincidence.

    Wow. I bet there are some psycho-analysts out there who would give anything to get this guy on the couch.

  • Sorry to double dip on the comments....

    But it's interesting how little class this guy has. Not only in his thoughts and words, but in his physical style (or lack there of). He really is a buffoon. Politically brutal, maybe even savvy, but in the end... just a frickin' ass.

  • There were several long sections in the presser where he talked about how bad things happened to him. And an interesting list of things he could have done to be popular. "I could have signed off on Kyoto...."

    I also liked the self hatred over "self pity."

    And for some reason this clip caught me as not right in mood, in presentation in something.
