That look of perpetual surprise on the President’s face isn’t faked: He and his Administration appear incapable of anticipating the sunrise.
- Condoleeza Rice, May 16, 2002: “I don’t think anybody could have predicted that they would try to use an airplane as a missile.”
- George W. Bush, September 1, 2005: “I don’t think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees.”
The two biggest one-day disasters of the Bush presidency — of the past fifty years — and the collective response of the President and his advisors is: “Well, goll-lee!” Thousands lay dead, hundreds of billions of dollars in property is destroyed and the people charged with our protection and safety can only tell us that, well, we never really gave it much thought.
I am so mad at these morons, I want to vomit.
