Bush Forced to Stay Up Past Bedtime; Disses World Leaders the Next Day

Poor President Bush. Over the weekend he was an American fish out of water trapped in an Argentinean nightmare. During the first-leg of his four-day Latin America trip for a trade summit with Western Hemisphere leaders, Bush, normally fed by 7 and in his Doctor Dentons by 9pm and in dreamland shortly thereafter, was at the mercy of his foreign hosts who kept him out till--get this--12:40am Saturday. As is the culture in Latin America and Europe, for example, dinner isn't typically served until at least 10pm. To say Bush was a bit miffed would be an understatement. As such, his aides announced that he'd of course be attending the next day's session, but would miss the scheduled two-hour lunch with these same leaders because of "time served" the night before. An early exit was planned to get Bush on Air Force One by 4:05 to get to his next destination, Brazil.

But again, poor Bush. The summit was a bit contentious and the talks ran three hours later than planned, and event organizers decided to cancel lunch. So there was the president, at 3:30pm, no lunch, stomach gurgling, miffed again, abruptly leaving to make his flight and leaving an aide behind to represent the U.S. And, leaving the rest of the gathered dignitaries wondering if the leader of the free world was simply a grumpy, hungry and tired old man. Remember the famed Clinton all-nighters? Now there was a president.

    Yes Andy what we wouldn’t give to have a REAL President like Bill Clinton in office rather than this 8 to 5 one we have now. You would at least think Bush would be able to stay awake for the 10 o’clock news, maybe then he’d learn something about what is REALLY going on in this world.

    Every time I see his ugly puss on the screen I have to change channels but what really gets me is that there are still people out there that like this sorry clown.

    Have YOU had enough yet?

    I can't stand his voice, can't stand to look at him. He and all of criminal administration need to prosecuted for their crimes. My head spins and my stomach turns with guilt knowing I am an American who has a lying war criminal in the WH, who has done all he can to harm the poor and help the rich. He is an abomination, the whole world knows it. We need a media that is not run by companies that profit from war.

    It's always about him - me, me, me!

    Such a cry baby - wah, wah wah!

    He is total manchild. Sort of like the Three Stooges or Pee Wee Herman.

    What miserable spoiled brat he is. Always has to have his own way.

    what I wonder is how the people around him who must work at least 12 or more hours a day feel. Do they look upon him as a moron who must be pampered? How can they see him as a leader?

    To refer to the prior comment, I will say that I too have a somewhat helpless boss, who is seemingly unable to make a phone call by himself or arrange a meeting without the most comprehensive of personal assistance. I work 12 hours a day. I do not look upon my boss as a moron, but rather someone who has had these things done for him for so long that he forgot how to do them himself. A leader? not so much! My boss is a fortunate man who wisely chose wealthy parents, married well, and had a few can't-miss investments, like selling beer to redneck Southerners. So he is rich enough to afford all the spoiling that he pays for. Nothing wrong with it - but nothing much right, either. Although I am leeching happily off this too-rich-slightly-dumb gentleman, I do not respect him and I would not want my children to grow up to be like him.

    Besides, he isn't tired. He is a dry drunk.

    Why do journalists insist on calling Bush the "leader of the free world"? He is NOT the leader of the free world. I am a Canadian. I am most certainly a part of the free world (some might argue, a freer part than Mr. Bush is president of). He is not MY leader. I did not (could not) participate in any democratic process to elect him. I owe him absolutely no allegience. In what sense could anyone possibly suggest he is "my leader"? Please, be accurate in your reporting. Stop referring to Mr. Bush as the "leader of the free world". He is the leader of the US only.

    Poor little Georgie-Boy! Taken off his feeding schedule by all those nasty heads of state! And "leader of the free world", in a state increasingly moving to corruption, lack of press freedom, lack of rights to privacy, reduced personal freedoms, fascism, theocracy, and certainly giving far less a damn about its own people than any modern country? Please!! Recent statistics would suggest, in any sense other than military, that tiny Finland's leader has a more plausible right to that title.

    He probably wanted Crooked Lip to read him his usual "Jesus loves YOU better than anybody!" bedtime story.
