Yeah, Right, I Made *Smirk* Mistakes

Take a look at the smirk on our President's face as he and British P.M. Blair tell reporters that their efforts to combat terrorism have had a few mistakes.

As noted in other blogs, it appears the confession really wasn't an admission of mistakes, more a regret for the choice of wording.

As before, the lyrics to "My Way" must be running through the mind of the Commander In Chief.

Regrets, I've had a few;
But then again, too few to mention.
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption.

I planned each charted course;
Each careful step along the byway,
But more, much more than this,
I did it my way."


  1. I heart Joe Powell.

    Oh, and Bush is a tool.

  2. Not the 'sharpest tool' in the shed either.

    A few years ago I saw a speech pathologist that does anaylsis on CNN and he compared how KERRY spoke and How Bush spoke. He pointed out how Bush does this 'adoloscent smirk' as he called it, even at the most inappropriate of times at the end of a sentence. He said it was very revealing as to his character. hmmmmm

    I suspect Bush is responding to remarks made by his prompter through his earpiece. Remember the contraversy about Bush wearing a earpiece during the Bush/Kerry Debates? I understand Bush makes extensive use of a small prompter in his ear. If you listen closely to the cadences of Bush's remarks you can hear the pauses between phrases that indicates the is being prompted.

    I also suspect there is no love lost between Bush and Blair these days. A couple of days ago I caught Blair in mid-sentence taking a swipe at "the Amerians" and I swear he was emulating Bush's "foot on the brass rail, elbow on the bar" posture Bush likes to adopt during his comments. Blair's association with Bush has cost him dearly and I understand that the British, who have arguably won a war on terror in Northern Ireland, have much different policy views on how to pursue the war against the insurgence in Iraq.

    I have noticed huge changes in Bush's demeanor and speech patterns over the last few years and in a discussion with a friend of mine who has battled and won in his struggle against addiction to Paxil, I think it was, my friend agreed that Bush's has all the characteristics of someone battling some sort of substance abuse or emotional disorder. Couple that with someone who has literally lived in some sort of ivory or PVC tower his whole life and you have somone who has complete detachment from reality and context.
