Bush Slams the U.S. Court System (Again)

Posted by on August 18 at 11:58 AM

And Aravosis goes off:

Someone give George Bush a God damn fucking civics lesson

I’ve had it with this idiot.

We’ve got the president of the fucking United States of America lecturing a US court of law that it’s supposed to reach decisions NOT based on the rule of law, but on “the nature of the world we live in.”

You God damn stupid fuck.

You have the nerve to claim Osama and the terrorists hate our democracy? They got nothing on you and your fellow “Republicans.” Do you people even believe in freedom? Do you believe in the Bill of Rights? Do you believe in our Constitution? Do you fucking believe in anything other than your absolute power to do whatever the fuck you want like some two-bit communist dictator rather than the president of the greatest country on earth?

We live in a democracy, you incompetent ass - one that is quickly eroding because half the people of this country elected a moron to the presidency (twice) and now are so embarrassed by their vote that they refuse to stand up and demand an end to your idiotic reign of terror.

These are judges you’re demeaning. American jurists. The people in charge of our laws. And you speak of them like they’re nothing more than crap. You and your party have contempt for our entire system of jurisprudence, the entire system of checks and balances our democracy is based on, because you can’t get your way 100% of the time. Well boo-fucking-hoo. We are a country of laws, you stupid stupid man.

The world in which we live is one in which the town drunk thinks he’s the king of the fucking world.

Osama bin Laden is a danger to be sure. But the greatest threat to our democracy is from George Bush and his genuflecting Republicans.

Amen preacher!

Got to respect the Federal Judge in Detroit. I cannot imagine the vitrol she's receiving right now...

Gonzales is quoted in the article, saying the administration"believes very strongly that the program is lawful."

This is one of those times that believeing something doesn't make it true.

Is it 2008 yet?

Look, the commie Reds like the Bushies think he's King.

they're just plain delusional.

I would love to read the text of the story, but the link gives me the subscription bs. Any chance you could put some of the NYT article up?

Aravosis is shrill and reactionary, even more so than usual for him. But really, I have no argument with his basic premise. Bush is sworn to uphold the constitution, and instead he has violated it and sought every way possible to increase the power of the presidency and disrupt the basic balance of power of this country. He has no respect for any other authority. And this is aside from the whole Iraq fiasco.

Worst president ever. is your pal...



for login and pword

and the shame of the great rant is that neither bushie nor anyone close to him will ever read it nor understand what they're doing. They're too fucking dumb to even know they're dumb.

Right. Democrats have no culpability whatsoever. They've been complaining vociferously ever since the Patriot Act was passed. Impeachment articles are threatening the president for his unapologetic unconstitutional acts revealed over the last 3 years, and most Dems support impeachment, believing the rule of law to be more important than presenting a facade of bipartisanship... It's all the Republicans' fault!

The only thing I'd disagree with is Aravosis' assertion that we elected Bush twice. That's wrong, of course. He was appointed by friends of his father the first time, and they only won the second time by cheating. Other than that, it's spot on.

WF, it looks like Bush is not the only one who needs a civics lesson. Articles of impeachment must be introduced in the House of Representatives. The House is controlled by the Republicans. Even if the Democrats wanted to introduce Articles of Impeachment (and some do) it couldn't even make it to the floor.

So yes, it is all the Republican's fault. And the Retarded citizens who vote for them.

Of course, the dems are too busy blaming wal-mart for america's problems to do jack shit about the state of all things relevant.

HERE HERE to the status quo!!
HERE HERE to the status quo!!

The Dems don't have subpeona power until they take the House next January.

The Repugs don't give a shit if Bush breaks the law.


Bipartisanship implies both sides are willing to compromise and meet in the middle. In this vitriolic Republican-controlled Congress the Dems get royally screwed every time they reach out. Today's Republican party doesn't know the meaning of the word bipartisanship - it is merely a talking point.

F bipartisanship. You want bipartisanship, you'd better vote the elephants out of office!

Israeli government is based on the Law. America must follow Israel's example and believe in the Law. It is the only way to promote justice. Isreal is the most just government in the world because Jews believe in the Law.


Even if the Repubs cheated in the last election, enough idiots voted for them to make that possible. Slightly less than a majority of voters, and Republican dirty tricks, put him in office. If American weren't so fucking complacent, he would have lost by huge margins in 2000, and certainly in 2004.

Yes. the Demsocrats need to outpoll the Republicans by an amount greater than the margin of error. If Alan Keyes is on television every night talking about stem cells and Hitler, maybe that'll finally happen.

so, basically, what most of you are saying is: if you don't vote in November, you deserve the corrupt rule of King George.

good point.

so, did everyone register permanent absentee yet, so you get your PAPER ballot?

The only complaint I have - and it's been an ongoing complaint, not just with Aravosis - is the usage of the word "stupid" to describe Bush.

Without going into a long descriptive tirade of the ways that word is used to define him (there are many applications), calling him stupid is completely incorrect.

He is not stupid. Nothing that happened in the past six years (from the first campaign forward) was stupid. He is arrogant, determined, manipulative and completely in control.

Don't cut him an inch of slack. He is not the victim of chance or tough luck or bad schooling.

Patrick, I don't think Bush is a complete moron, but I do think he is like Reagan: An amiable, none-to-bright front man who is supposed to put an "aw shucks" face on the nefarious activities of the GOP.

Reagan was better at it, but he was a bad actor - and America loves bad actors. Plus, he had been through the studio system, and knew how to handle himself.

That could be true, RRIFD. We'll probably never really know that for sure.

My problem with that label on him is that it makes it very hard to highlight for the unconvinced (and on the fence) people that the Executive is the problem. When we promote the idea that somehow he doesn't know any better - through no fault of his own, he is playing his part, a cog in the crazy wheel of politics - we allow people to excuse his behavior and give him a break.

Maybe it's too subtle a point to spend much time on, but every time I hear someone call him stupid, I cringe. You don't get where he is and be able to do the things he has done by being stupid. It's not that simple and neither is he.

It's entirely possible to get to the place Bush has gotten to while being stupid - PARTICULARLY if you come from one of America's wealthiest and most influential families.

Even the conservatives have turned on Bush, particularly in the area of his intellect. In the paper today was a lovely piece describing a recent episode of Scarbrough -- right-wing butthead that he is -- where the caption at the bottom of the screen, for ten minutes, was "Is Bush an Idiot?" -- a question Joe answered at length "yes".

Of course, every right-wing loon is desperately scrambling to stake some position, any position, opposed to Mr. Fiasco there.

Contempt of Court: **** yeah, you ******* ****** *******, Eli ******* Sanders just ******* ****** you the **** up. Too bad ******* ****wit Jimmy ******** Carter didn't have the ******* brains to ap*******point a dip**** federal ******* judge with enough ******* knowledge of into ******* law to ******* write a ******* o*******pinion that might half-******* possibly survive ******* challenge. Was ******* Taylor ******* asleep the ******* day they ******* studied ******* standing?
