So today President of the United States George W. Bush, speaking overseas, compared the Democratic nominee for president to a Nazi appeaser.
He didn’t come right out and say that, of course, possibly because he thought he was being subtle, or perhaps because he doesn’t really have a firm grasp on the actual historical events or more likely because he’s clearly a coward. In any event, anyone and everyone over the age of consent knew exactly what he was talking about.
Never mind the enormous brouhaha over what the Dixie Chicks did lo those many years ago, and the main argument of the time, which was that their sin wasn’t so much in what they said as where they said it, namely, outside the borders of this great nation.
And never mind the long-standing tradition that when a president is overseas, political opponents here at home generally refrain from criticizing him, and vice-versa. A sort of gentlemen’s agreement, if you will. Not that being a gentlemen is something this uncouth frat boy knows a damn thing about.
But when it comes to Americans doing business with the Nazis…well, now, that’s a subject with which President George W. Bush should be intimately acquainted.
President George W. Bush got where he did in life because he was born a rich white American male. And the reason he was born rich?
Because his grandfather, Prescott Bush, was more than merely a Nazi appeaser. He was more than even just a Nazi sympathizer. He was even more than a Nazi enabler.
President George W. Bush’s grandfather was part of a failed military coup, attempting to overthrow the President of the United States, Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
Both of which means President George W. Bush’s grandfather was a traitor to the United States of America.
So before President Bush goes shooting off his mouth and accusing any Americans of a crime as heinous as…well, his own grandfather’s, he better look in the mirror. And be prepared to disavow his own family fortune.
Because it’s blood money.
President Bush is apparently not satisfied with being disliked by more Americans than any other president in history. And he’s not satisfied with being likely to go down as the worst president in American history.
Now he’s shooting for the most reprehensible and un-American ever.
Finally, something at which he’s not incompetent.
