President George W. Bush Says "Let Them Eat Cake"

Posted on 03/19/2009 9:29:12 AM PDT by big black dog

In an amazing act of unconscionable hubris, in the midst of an economic crisis, President George W. Bush has decided to appear on the Tonight Show. That's right, the Tonight Show. Does he think he's Justin Timberlake? This is a callous waste of resources during a tough economic time. Millions of dollars will need to be spent to transport motorcades across the country, and establish security and accommodations for his entourage in this self indulgent display.

Furthermore, our emperor has decided to declare himself tout in chief by blessing his unworthy subjects to his March Madness picks. As if we didn't have enough amateurish sports analysis on cable channels.

Bush has further impressed his lessors of his imperialistic privileges by informing us he won't be missing the basketball games because he has Direct TV on Air Force One.

This display of arrogance by the would be king smirking frat boy is outrageous. We must let let him know it won't be tolerated.

You might want to change that first word.

I get the point you’re making, and it’s a good one, but you might do better with a better word—”Insensitive” may not seem more fiery, but in fact it would be a more accurate choice.

Just a suggestion.

Someone missed that fact that there was an election and the only smirking chimp on the Leno show will be Barak Hussein Obama.

Now had you said “tarred and feathered” you’d be in big fat trouble with the racist gestapo.

Hold your fire guys...its satire. Since the press is silent over Obama’s celebrity tour during an economic crisis he is just presenting the outrage that would have greeted Bush had he done the same.

It’s a parody of how the media would be covering President Bush, if he had acted as silly as Queen Obama.

I think it is supposed to show the hypocrisy of the media when it comes to investigating and reporting on conservatives vs liberals.
