It is said that whoever renders service to many puts himself in line for greatness – great wealth, great return, great satisfaction, great reputation, and great joy. Our esteemed president is not on the path to greatness however.
In fact, he’s well on his way to being considered one of the most self-centred, arrogant and shallow little fuckwits ever as evidenced in a recent interview wherein he tells the interviewer that he has given up golf in order to show his “solidarity” with the troops.
According to Bush, he made this decision in August of 2003 when he was interrupted while playing golf with the news of the Canal Hotel Bombing in which Brazilian diplomat Sergio Vieira de Mello died along with 21 people from his staff.
Of course, he didn’t actually give up golf until at least two months later as CBS apparently has documented proof that his last game was in October.
Left unmentioned is that 2003 is the year in which a lot of people noticed that Bush appeared to be spending more time vacationing than his predecessor Bill Clinton had. In fact, an article in the Washington Post on August 3, 2003, a little more than two weeks before the Canal Hotel bombing, reported that Bush had spent over five months at or en route to either Camp David or his ranch in Crawford.
