Bush, "I Have no compassion."
Omigosh...I just watched W's interview with Elizabeth Vargas on abc news. Of course it was edited & sanitized by the White House but there was one exchange that they must have missed, it blew me away!
Vargas was asking him about the drunk twins and if there may be a White House wedding. He said any suitor would have to come to the Oval Office & talk to him first. Vargas asked him if he realized how intimidating that could be and then said, "Don't you have compassion for the boy?"
"No. I have no compassion," he replied.
And that my friends has been what these last 6 years have been all about. He literally sucked the soul of the nation out, such that we are now hated almost everywhere on the planet. He looted the treasury such that we are 8 trillion dollars in debt. The effects of global warming are out of control
such that catch-up may be impossible.
And where did he spit the aftertaste? On us, on gay people. He used gay marriage and fearmongering to do his deed. (No, not on Muslims-- he is still in bed with the Saudis and the UAE, & he has no clue nor care where Osama is hiding.)
Gay people ended up being the wrench that connected the dots for him. When 'Amurrica' comes back to its senses (as it seems to be, slowly) I hope the price of homophobia becomes clearer to us all.
god over me, god before me, god behind me; on thy path, o god, thou in my steps...
