The biggest fucking phony, ever


In anther transparent effort to feign sympathy for the men and women in our military slaughtered for his elective war of imperialism and greed, George Bush told the New York Daily News the following:

Bush also revealed a sensitive side, admitting he's often reduced to tears when he meets families of fallen soldiers.

Bush said "my obligation" to visit family members is the hardest part of his job. "I'm a crier, and I weep a lot," he acknowledged. "On the other hand, when it's all over, I feel incredibly strengthened by the strength of the parents or the wife or the kids."

This photograph was taken on Memorial Day weekend, after Bush was presumably done "weeping" for the almost 1700 American citizens he sent off to die. Looks pretty happy to me, no? Perhaps he had a toast or two (or dozens) in honor of the tens of thousands of Iraqi civilians he's murdered. I'll refrain from commenting on Laura looking frumpy, wrinkled, and big hipped in her usual hideous pantsuit ensemble, as this fact is readily apparent from even a cursory glance at the photograph.

This soulless coward has never wept over anything other than the possiblity of his ass being shipped to Nam or his whiskey glass being empty.

One might hope the media one day will also inquire why Bush doesn't feel a weighty sense of "obligation" to attend even a single funeral of a fallen soldier - even those who were residents of the District of Columbia, a duty traditionally assigned to sitting presidents.
