Quote of the day-kinda’ says it all, don’t you think?

“Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.” – George W. Bush, Washington, D.C., Aug. 5, 2004

As bad as it gets

When George W. Bush first ran for president, some who opposed him said that everything he touched turned to stone; he was such a bad manager of his businesses that he ruined them or made catastrophic deals that weren’t in the best interest of his businesses.  After 8 years at the helm of the US government the same can be said of his stewardship there too.  At the same time he has managed to sour the reputation of America with even some of its staunchest allies.  No where is that more apparent than in this piece of video which originally aired on CNN.  I won’t go so far as to say his downward glances were a sign of rejection, he was probably looking for his “mark” on the platform, but he knew it would be near the end of the first group of world leaders, so his avoiding their glances and not shaking hands with them means either he didn’t want to or they didn’t; till the very end he neither shows respect nor receives it.  I wish the same could be same for America’s reaction to him when he leaves office, for he has not shown us respect.  Check out the video.
