|I love this Alex Ross Painting... awesome!
Forget 9-11... Not being able to find Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq... Never catching Osama Bin Laden.... Hurricane Katrina and the fall of New Orleans... Declaring that the war in the Middle East was over 100 days in despite the fact we are still fighting the same war right now... The economy taking to levels of Depression era numbers... nope, none of these tragedies were what really gave George W. Bush his worst moments of agony during his presidency was when Kanye West called him out for "Not Caring about Black People" during the Hurricane Katrina fundraiser....
"Five years later I can barely write those words without feeling disgust." You go on. "I faced a lot of criticism as President. I didn't like hearing people claim that I lied about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction or cut taxes to benefit the rich. But the suggestion that I was racist because of the response to Katrina represented an all time low."Those are his words... from his book. Honestly, I can not believe the level of stupidity being exhibited here. I can see why anybody, Bush included, would take exception to being taken to task so harshly by some current pop star like Kanye West. Fuck Kanye West... that was a dick move (Kanye is known for them, check his track record!). But I'm not mad that W was upset. I'm mad cause he said its the worst thing that happen while he was in office. You gotta be fucking kidding me. The best is that Matt Lauer gives him a shot during an interview to properly state what he really meant by his comments (maybe W was misunderstood)... and what does this guy say:
MATT LAUER: You say you told Laura at the time it was the worst moment of your Presidency?
PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH: Yeah. I still feel that way as you read those words. I felt 'em when I heard 'em, felt 'em when I wrote 'em and I felt 'em when I'm listening to 'em.
PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH: Yes. My record was strong I felt when it came to race relations and giving people a chance. And-- it was a disgusting moment.
