Live from Oceana Naval Air Station: Am I wrong to be repeatedly gobsmacked and disgusted by the narcissism of the Bush clan?
No More Mister Nice Blog: That Other Time George W. Bush Suggested 9/11 Was No Big Whoop: “BooMan flags this passage…
“I remember a comment George W. Bush made to me during a one-on-one, in-flight interview. He said the toughest moment of his life wasn’t what to do after 9/11 but seeing his father… defeated by Clinton. I thought for a moment he might cry, but of course he wouldn’t.”
BooMan is understandably appalled:
“What Kathleen is fondly recalling here is actually a moment that should have brought some clarifying terror….
“But this shouldn’t be surprising. In his 2010 memoir, Decision Points, Bush identified ‘the worst moment of my presidency’… [as] being called a racist by… Kanye West… saying ‘George Bush doesn’t care about black people.’
From the Guardian [George W. Bush]….
“I faced a lot of criticism as president. I didn’t like hearing people claim I had lied about Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction or cut taxes to benefit the rich. But the suggestion that I was a racist, because of the response to Katrina, represented an all-time low. I told Laura at the time that it was the worst moment of my presidency. I feel the same way today.”
So the worst moment of his presidency was when he was personally insulted. And the worst moment of his life was when his father lost an election. Three thousand dead in a massive terrorist attack? Get in line, 9/11…. Kanye wasn’t exactly right: The truth is, George W. Bush doesn’t care about non-Bush people.
