Disturbing [Jan. 16th, 2001|11:54 am]
Brad Fitzpatrick
Read this interview with Dubya. Even ignoring how poorly he speaks (most disturbingly, starting the majority of his sentences with the word "And"), read how arrogant he his about his new position:

Tom Brokaw: And some forms of — birth control even. What if he appoints a Solicitor General who will make the case of the government before the U.S. Supreme Court who shares his feelings, would that make you unhappy?
George W. Bush: But you understand who’s the president? He understands who — who’s going to occupy the chair in the Oval Office. John’s a team player when it comes to that.


Tom Brokaw: President Clinton is going out of office with an approval rate of 64 percent, higher than Ronald Reagan or any other outgoing president in modern memory. That says the country likes what he’s been doing.
George W. Bush: Well, maybe so, but he’s not going to be the president on January 20. I am.

ya know,

i'm from texas.. i have worn cowboy hats..
what are you tryin' to say exactly?

you get upset because 'republicans' all classify blacks/females/-people- into some type of derogatory category.. yet you do the same thing. i dunno..i don't think that's right. even if you were just 'joking' would you let it pass as such if someone used a 'joke' of the like in a derogatory manner against blacks/females/peopleotherthanwhiteheterosexualmales?

i find it offensive that everyone goes back to texas when they point out all of bush's shortcomings.

sorry, but i do.

& i'm sorry for directing this entire post to yourself, it is more of a roundabout rant at everyone who classifies people in groups that they do -not- fit in. & i know you did it halfheartidly & probably not w/meaning anything substantially rude by it.. i'm just getting sensitive to the subject lately. & sometimes i just do not know when to shut up.
*zips her mouth*

Re: ya know,

I've been to texas before, and compared to the North East it's a whole different world.

And I'm not classifing Texan's as a group, but Bush has whoren cowboy hates on interviews already, and the world already thinks of as as different things, and now if he does that they will see as us cowboys again. I don't think the nation really needs this image.
