    BUSH'S RESUME

    George W. Bush
    The White House, USA

    EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE:

    LAW ENFORCEMENT:

    I was arrested in Kennebunkport, Maine, in 1976 for
    driving under the influence of alcohol. I pled guilty, paid a
    fine, and had my driver's license suspended for 30 days.
    My Texas driving record has been "lost" and is not available.

    MILITARY:

    I joined the Texas Air National Guard and went AWOL.
    I refused to take a drug test or answer any questions
    about my drug use. By joining the Texas Air National Guard, I
    was able to avoid combat duty in Vietnam.

    COLLEGE:

    I graduated from Yale University with a low C average.
    I was a cheerleader.


    PAST WORK EXPERIENCE:

    I ran for U.S. Congress and lost.

    I began my career in the oil business in Midland,
    Texas, in 1975. I bought an oil company, but couldn't
    find any oil in Texas. The company went bankrupt
    shortly after I sold all my stock.

    I bought the Texas Rangers baseball team in a
    sweetheart deal that took land using taxpayer money.

    With the help of my father and our right-wing friends
    in the oil industry (including Enron CEO Ken Lay), I
    was elected governor of Texas.

    ACCOMPLISHMENTS AS GOVERNOR OF TEXAS:

    I changed Texas pollution laws to favor power and oil
    companies, making Texas the most polluted state in the Union.

    During my tenure, Houston replaced Los Angeles as the
    most smog-ridden city in America.

    I cut taxes and bankrupted the Texas treasury to the
    tune of billions in borrowed money.

    I set the record for the most executions by any
    governor in American history.

    With the help of my brother, the governor of Florida,
    and my father's appointments to the Supreme Court, I became
    President after losing by over 500,000 votes.

    ACCOMPLISHMENTS AS PRESIDENT:

    I am the first President in U.S. history to enter
    office with a criminal record.

    I invaded and occupied two countries at a continuing
    cost of over one billion dollars per week.

    I spent the U.S. surplus and effectively bankrupted
    the U.S. Treasury.

    I shattered the record for the largest annual deficit
    in U.S. history.

    I set an economic record for most private bankruptcies
    filed in any 12-month period.

    I set the all-time record for most foreclosures in a
    12-month period.

    I'm proud that the members of my cabinet are the
    richest of any administration in U.S. history.

    My "poorest millionaire," Condoleeza Rice, has a
    Chevron oil tanker named after her.

    I set the record for most campaign fund-raising trips
    by a U.S. President.

    I am the all-time U.S. and world record-holder for
    receiving the most corporate campaign donations.

    My largest lifetime campaign contributor, and one of
    my best friends, Kenneth Lay, presided over the largest
    corporate bankruptcy fraud in U.S. History, Enron.

    My political party used Enron private jets and
    corporate attorneys to assure my success with the U.S. Supreme
    Court during my election decision.

    I have protected my friends at Enron and Halliburton
    against investigation or prosecution. More time and
    money was spent investigating the Monica Lewinsky
    affair than has been spent investigating one of the
    biggest corporate rip-offs in history.

    I presided over the biggest energy crisis in U.S.
    history and refused to intervene when corruption involving the
    oil industry was revealed.

    I presided over the highest gasoline prices in U.S.
    history.

    I changed the U.S. policy to allow convicted criminals
    to be awarded government contracts.

    I appointed more convicted criminals to administration
    than any President in U.S. history.

    I created the Ministry of Homeland Security, the
    largest bureaucracy in the history of the United States
    government.

    I've broken more international treaties than any
    President in U.S. history.

    I am the first President in U.S. history to have the
    United Nations remove the U.S. from the Human Rights
    Commission.

    I withdrew the U.S. from the World Court of Law.

    I refused to allow inspectors access to U.S.
    "prisoners of war" detainees and thereby have refused
    to abide by the Geneva Convention.

    I am the first President in history to refuse United
    Nations election inspectors (during the 2002 U.S. election).

    I set the record for fewest number of press
    conferences of any President since the advent of
    television.

    I set the all-time record for most days on vacation in
    any one-year period.

    After taking off the entire month of August, I
    presided over the worst security failure in U.S. history.

    I garnered the most sympathy for the U.S. after the
    World Trade Center attacks and less than a year later made the
    U.S. the most hated country in the world, the largest failure of
    diplomacy in world history.

    I have set the all-time record for most people
    worldwide to simultaneously protest me in public
    venues (15 million people), shattering the record for
    protest against any person in the history of mankind.

    I am the first President in U.S. history to order an
    unprovoked, pre-emptive attack and the military
    occupation of a sovereign nation. I did so against the will of the
    United
    Nations, the majority of U.S. citizens, and the world community.

    I have cut health care benefits for war veterans and
    support a cut in duty benefits for active duty troops
    and their families -- in war time.

    I signed into law a Medicare bill that give seniors
    very little (20% discount card) but gives billions of
    dollars to drug manufacturers.

    In my State of the Union Address, I lied about our
    reasons for attacking Iraq, then blamed the lies on
    our British friends.

    I am the first President in history to have a majority
    of Europeans (71%) view my presidency as the biggest
    threat to world peace and security.

    I am supporting development of a nuclear "Tactical
    Bunker Buster," a WMD.

    I have so far failed to fulfill my pledge to bring
    Osama Bin Laden to justice.


    RECORDS AND REFERENCES:

    All records of my tenure as governor of Texas are now
    in my father's library, sealed and unavailable for public
    view.

    All records of SEC investigations into my insider
    trading and my bankrupt companies are sealed in
    secrecy and unavailable for public view.

    All records or minutes from meetings that I, or my
    Vice-President, attended regarding public energy
    policy are sealed in secrecy and unavailable for
    public review.

    PLEASE SEND THIS TO EVERY VOTER YOU KNOW.

    I don't think this is "hilarious" AT ALL. (If it were fictional, it might be worth a chuckle or two.) Actually, "obscene" is the word that comes to mind, as it so aptly describes the president's, um, achievements. :angryfire

    well, you are really right. I just find it ludicrous that most people don't even take the time to read about HIS REAL ACHIEVEMENTS.
  5. by   Brownms46
    That would require thinking for yourself, and not blindly accepting the party bull! Easier to listen to the govt. controlled media, and letting them tell you what to think!

    You're Totally right MJ....obscene is an EXCELLENT word!!!

    And what are his real achievements? The only positive thing that I can think of is his signing the "do not call" bill, and freeing us from the annoyance of telemarketers. Everything else is detrimental to the country, unless you are the CEO of an oil company. Even bills that seem like they have merit, such as his AIDS plan, come with all kinds of strings attached (like not using generic drugs), and don't get anywhere near the funding they need.

    So I would really love to see a list of his "achievments."

    I agree. Did you know that the primary way that Bush proposes to prevent AIDS in Africa is to promote abstinence?

    Pushing a Christian-right way of thinking on an entirely different culture and country is rediculous.

    Quote from Hellllllo Nurse
    Pushing a Christian-right way of thinking on an entirely different culture and country is rediculous.
    It's not a realistic solution, therefore not a good solution, but it's part of 100% prevention.
  10. by   nekhismom
    I agree it's part of prevention, but since women in certain parts of Africa can be killed for refusing sex with their husbands, and also for asking their husbands to use condoms, I think it's highly unlikely that it will be even slightly effective.

    And like Roxanne said, most of the bills currently being considered, things the Bush admin is touting, have ridiculous "riders" attached to them. Since our President has to power of line-item veto, that means that theoretically, if the president was looking out for the best interests of the American people, he could veto the useless crap at the bottom of these bills. However, that is not Bush's plan for the people. He's probably more interested in the "riders" than in the actual bill itself.

    Living overseas and seeing how he is shown in other countries..............
    I have never seen a US president this disliked ever, he he is getting slammed almost on a daily basis. Actually quite scary.................Definitely feel much safer over here.
  12. by   suzanne4
    And now he is telling the "allies" that they cannot refuse what he wants them to do..............They don't have to listen to him....................Halliburton was given a contract to supply oil to Iraq, overcharged the government a huge sum, supposedly, and when the contracts were being bid on for the rebuilding, of course Halliburton got it. Previously, if you were charged with overcharging the US government, you could no longer get a government contract. But remember, that Halliburton was run by Cheney................ :angryfire

    You are right Suzanne - I have seen some pretty good political satires fired against American Presidents ( Rubbery figures running gag on Reagan's brain comes to mind) but always there was a degree of camaraderie within the satire a fondness if you will but not for Bush and this has been getting more pronounced. Nothing overt on the TV or radio but the average person does not like him.
  14. by   suzanne4
    Gwenith, Did you ever get a chance to see the BBC special that aired just after he was elected? You definitely would never see it playing in the US.
    It was on him and his wife. Quite amusing..................They really didn't like him then, and this was the year before 9/11. If you get a chance to see it, it will be worth your 30 min, just for the entertainment value......

    Are you having any problems with the typhoons that are hitting down there?
    Not sure which city that you are in?
