Quote:Former President George W. Bushsays his apparent lack of reaction to the first news of the September 11 2001 attacks was a conscious decision to project an aura of calm in a
Quote:"My first reaction was anger. Who the hell would do that to America? Then I immediately focused on the children, and the contrast between the attack and the innocence of children," Bush says in an excerpt of the interview shown to television writers on Thursday.
Quote:Bush said he quickly realized that a lot of people beyond the classroom would be watching for his reaction. Can you believe his narcissism? (Oh yes, stupid incompetents can be narcissistic, too!) Instead of thinking about the children, or the thousands he’d just killed, or all the destruction he’d wrought so far and the destruction he had yet to wreak, what was he thinking about? How he looked! What people might think about him, or say about him! The world is falling to pieces all around him, and all he can do is sit there and wonder if his fly is open. Or maybe not, since stupid people tend to be oblivious to open flies.
Quote:"So I made the decision not to jump up immediately and leave the classroom. I didn't want to rattle the kids. I wanted to project a sense of calm," he said of his decision to remain seated and silent.
Quote:Executive producer and director Peter Schnall said Bush, who has adopted a low public profile since leaving office in January 2009, brought no notes to the interview. Obviously Mr. Schnall didn’t check the palms of Bush’s hands. Everyone knows that’s where stupid people write their notes.

Commissarka PinkieCommissarka Pinkie is a regular contributor to The People’s Cube, and is renowned and admired by the masses for her dedication to raising awareness of how much she cares. When she isn’t busy making an issue out of everything, she likes to unwind by beating proles with her shovel, spending other people’s money, and indulging her Obamaphilia with Obamabilia until she’s Obamabilious.
Quote:George W. Bush is a Slow-Witted Liar and I Hate Him! Reading that made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. It's spot on, and I totally agree. I HATE him too.

Father Prog TheocritusDear Obamabilious Pinkie, let me warn you about overdosing on the heady air of The Chosen One. He inhabits a rarified atmosphere, and he also sucks all the oxygen from any room that he's in. Personally I can get rather giddy when I just see him. I keep hoping that it won't rain and drown him.
