'The commander guy' – shame of a nation
A laugh until you cry moment. Can we please wake up from this nightmare soon?
Bush: `I’m the Commander Guy’
President Bush coined a new nickname for himself – `’the commander guy” – on Wednesday, as he criticized Congressional Democrats in a speech to the annual gathering of the Associated General Contractors of America, a construction industry trade group.
The man who last year proclaimed “I’m the decider,” in response to a question about whether he would fire Donald Rumsfeld as defense secretary, came up with this latest moniker in explaining why he vetoed an Iraq war spending bill that dictated a timeline for troops to withdraw from Iraq.
“The question is, `Who ought to make that decision, the Congress or the commanders?,” Mr. Bush said. “As you know, my position is clear – I’m the commander guy.“
I guess we can add this to the list of ways Dear Leader brings a touch of class to each and every occasion…see more asshattery after the flip.
“Joking” with the German Chancellor Angela Merkel. There’s video as well.
