One wonders what is bubbling up in George Jr.’s brain fluids and what makes the guy so blind he can’t see the huge, out-stretched, multi-layered hand about to slap his freakin’ face.
Either he’s so dumb to be believed, or he just don’t give a fat-rat’s ass.
Most-likely a strange, biological combination of both.
On Saturday, the former president (I write that with a heavy heart) told a leadership conference in New Delhi, India, the war in Afghanistan should be escalated beyond the boiling point as apparently the conflict is the linchpin for the freedom of the planet.
The boy hasn’t lost his touch for irony and unmitigated gall.

Via Agence France-Presse:
“If the Taliban, Al-Qaeda and their extremist allies were allowed to take over Afghanistan again, they would have a safe haven and the Afghan people, particularly the Afghan women, would face a return to a brutal tyranny.”
“This region and the world would face serious threats,” he added.
The former buck-stops-here Big Decider guy steered clear of offering direct advice to President Obama, who is currently figuring out what to with George Jr.’s Afghan debacle — more troops and how many — but that didn’t plug his face-hole, however:
“…the work is hard and I hope we don’t abandon the people of Afghanistan.”
The asshole has a memory lapse — George Jr. abandoned the country in December 2001 when he started prep work on the Iraq invasion — and even after it became apparent the Taliban was re-emerging years later, denied a troop increase (due to the Iraqi front going to shit in a wire basket).
And he punked the Indians with the continuing line that extremists want to destroy us simply because they just plain loath our way of life.
Bush said both the United States and India were “involved in an ideological struggle against extremists who murder the innocent to advance a dark vision of extremism and control.”
“They attack political, financial and diplomatic targets because they hate our way of life and they hate our vision for freedom and human rights and human dignity and prosperity and peace,” Bush told the conference.
This is also the same George Jr. who waxed poetic nearly two years ago about the sweet-fiction of war: “I must say, I’m a little envious. If I were slightly younger and not employed here, I think it would be a fantastic experience to be on the front lines of helping this young democracy succeed. It must be exciting for you … in some ways romantic, in some ways, you know, confronting danger. You’re really making history, and thanks.”
For what, you lying, freakin’ freak!
