Bush is just ‘the commander guy’

By
May 3, 2007

President George W. Bush has many games for himself. He likes to call himself "the decider" and he really prefers to be known as the "commander-in-chief."

But if that sounds too pompous, just call him "the commander guy."

Reports Sheryl Gay Stolberg in The New York Times:

And you thought he was still “the decider.”

President Bush coined a new nickname for himself — ‘’the commander guy” — on Wednesday, as he criticized Congressional Democrats in a speech to the annual gathering of the Associated General Contractors of America, a construction industry trade group.

The man who last year proclaimed “I’m the decider,’’ in response to a question about whether he would fire Donald Rumsfeld as defense secretary, came up with this latest moniker in explaining why he vetoed an Iraq war spending bill that dictated a timeline for troops to withdraw from Iraq.

“The question is, ‘Who ought to make that decision, the Congress or the commanders?,’’ Mr. Bush said. “As you know, my position is clear – I’m the commander guy.”

We’re glad he cleared that one up.

    I prefer ” Evil One” or Liar in Chief. Or Dumb Ass Crook.

    History will record the Bush Family as the destroyers of a constitutional republic that was originally established by the people for the people to exist in a free and secure environment and to persue happiness.

    Search out the history of the Bush Family and you will see how treason and criminal behavior has made them one of the richest families in America. True facts seem to be hidden from the major media or is it they do the hiding?

    I would prefer to call him the first President ever to be impeached along with his Vice(how appropriate!)President.
    Then I would prefer to call him a defendant in a class action lawsuit brought by the People of the United States of America.
    Then I would like to call him the late George W Bush, after he is hanged for crimes against humanity, treason, and murder for personal gain.
    Good names all!

    Like Benedict Arnold and Vidkun Quisling, “Geo. W. Bush” holds promise of becoming its very own epithet — perhaps a perjorative verb, giving new meaning to the phrase, “I’m Bushed.”

    Commander guy stopped terrorist attacks on US cities. What did Clinton do? Storm a compound in Waco and send a little boy back to live in the socialist paradise that is Cuba, after his mother died trying to escape. Sent in federal SWAT to Blow the brains out of Randy Weaver’s wife and baby.Bite his lip and squeeze out a fake tear as embassy’s, Navy ships, and civilian air planes were blown up by Osama and his buddies.

    I think the country would have liked George Bush to have stopped terrorist attacks on 911, but when he and half the pentagon strangely go stupid and leave ( purposely ) the most important air space on earth unprotected for two hours, I call that treason. What other presidents did can’t hold a candle to GWs ruinous actions to destroy America. Israelis blew up the Liberty and killed sailors. Zionist owned media did not report it. False flag events have become the norm for gaining support to invade and occupy foriegn nations ( and steal oil ). We pay three bucks a gallon and 500 billion to steal it. Go figure!
