Humble Rants 1 May 2013

by Robert Skoglund aka The humble Farmer

We read in the paper that George W. Bush’s approval rating is the highest it’s been in years. Below that the writer explains that our former president’s new-found popularity comes because of the passage of time and his relative invisibility, “rather than any re-evaluation of his record.”

Beneath that are a few examples of the incredibly nonsensical things that he said. But Bush is far from being a foolish man and is probably the most successful president we have had in many years, if you only consider how many of the things he set out to do that he actually accomplished. 

1. He made his very rich friends much richer.

2. He created a whole new class of homeless people who are now willing to work for most any wage offered, which is making his rich friends much richer.

3. He made his very rich friends much richer.

4. Bush gave the impression of being an ignoramus to detract attention from the fact that under the table his policies were gutting the economy at the expense of small businesses and people who work for an hourly wage.

5. He made his very rich friends much richer.

George W. Bush might bring to your mind the present governor of the state of Maine who is also a skilled prestidigitator: Your eyes are distracted by the clumsy antics of a right hand while a left hand deftly picks your pocket.
