Blogroll Me! How This Old Brit Sees It ...: Bubble-boy Bush Pleads With Poodle Blair ...

Bubble-boy Bush Pleads With Poodle Blair ...

Almost indecently soon after abandoning Britons to the tender mercies of the chaos & carnage which was Katrina - along with Australians, Canadians and hundreds of thousands of his fellow Americans - the philanderer-in-chief suddenly, can't cozy up quickly nor close enough to the British Premier.

But as per usual, there's method in this man's madness - though it's difficult to determine where the shrub comes by such shameless cheek.

Bare faced bloody gaul?

Read this remarkable report re; the beleaguered bubble-boy.

Bush begs Blair for support over Katrina

By Vincent Moss

EMBATTLED George Bush is begging Tony Blair to "pull him out of a hole" by backing his handling of the New Orleans crisis.

Well, they do say every dog has it's day.

But a president ... pleading with his poodle ?

Nonetheless, pathetically pitiful though it appears, it certainly sums up GWB's current self inflicted, sad-sac situation.

Oh, the irony of it all. A turd asks a turd for assistance -- with, of all things, an excrement extraction exercise.

Priceless, eh ?

But back to Vincent Moss, in the Mirror.

The Prime Minister flies to New York on Tuesday for a United Nations summit where he will meet the US President.

Mr Blair's allies are desperately urging him to avoid publicly supporting Mr Bush who has faced an avalanche of criticism over the bungled relief operation after Hurricane Katrina.

But the White House is determined to use the huge respect Mr Blair commands in the States to bolster Mr Bush by supporting his stewardship of the disaster.

Officials at Number Ten were this weekend trying to find a solution to the diplomatic minefield.

One senior Government source admitted: "There is pressure from America to pull Bush out of a hole over New Orleans."
But what about the best bit ?

"But is very difficult to pour praise on a relief operation which was so clearly flawed. It would make us look ridiculous."
Sadly but probably not surprisingly, This Old Brit hasn't yet been asked [officially] how he sees it -- neither by Blair personally nor indeed by any of his New Labour, band of brothers.

What a pity they don't realise Richard has a ready made, reply-on-a-plate for the pratt.

And while it's by no means original - as Bush's callous and criminal co-conspirator, Cheney can quite confidently confirm, it is a fast becoming, famously fashionable phrase.

For if This Old Brit were Blair, here's what he would say.

Go fuck yourself, George.

Turds of a feather, Richard.
(Sorry. 'Couldn't resist)

You're not surprised are you? He still thinks this is a political spin fest.

Ha, ha. 'Turds of a feather' - you were right not to resist - I love it.

As for being suprised - no way, Cosmic. But what I can't wait to see, is exactly what the B-liar says - and does.

The problem is that it IS a political spin fest! And the only thing that the Bush administration is good at (and they are exceptional in this regard) is misinformation and political spin. Bushco's machiavellian messaging mechanism (how's that, Richard?) is pervasive and efficient. In the comments of your previous post, several people expressed shock that monkey-boy still enjoys as much support as he does. It is shocking, in a way, but not so surprising when you consider that much of the mainstream media is complicit in the scheme. It is alarming the number of people who regurgitate the WH talking points every day (and these are people you wouldn't necessarily dismiss as morons). The propaganda is so thick and heavy it takes a significant effort to see past it. Most people don't have the time for that effort because they are too busy trying to pay the rent, deal with the kids, fix the leaky faucet, etc. and so they are bombarded with this false message and it becomes the only truth they are aware of (when you live in a house of liars, the truth is just another lie).

Anyway, I just wanted to point out that even though there are plenty of Americans worthy of contempt, most of them really are just poor, hapless bastards that are being disastrously misled. Perhaps some good can come out of this disaster. Maybe the outrage will prove sufficient to clear the air and reveal the bullshit. Unfortunately, my worst (if wiser) self thinks that they are going to weasel sufficiently out of harm's way yet again.

why blame Bush? why not put the blame to where it really belongs : to America, American people and American values

As I read your article, I recalled the old RCA Victor recordings that included "His Master's Voice" as the trademark: the little dog that responds to a grammophone. It's ironic that the original painting was done by a Brit, sold to Americans, and is now owned by the Japanese.

Maybe Britain could get it back as a symbol of Blair's term in office.

The only good thing about this is that it shows how desperate Bush and his puppetmasters are to shore up his fast-falling public support.

People KNOW what they saw, and even if, in a moment of madness, Blair praises Bush for his incompetence it won't make a bit of an impression. No amount of spin can salvage the political hit little boots has taken over this.

New Manifesto, it is exactly your sort of narrow, myopic thinking that is the cause of all the problems in this world. You'd happily subject all the American people to misery because of the failures of their government. That is exactly the sort of reasoning that led Bushco to invade Iraq.

Simpchimp, I hope you're right. But I think they're going to weather this storm. They'll get a bit of a black eye, and maybe a fat lip, but I don't think they're going down for the count on this. What we need is to capture Bush, Cheney, Rove, and Rummy on videotape sodomizing a 13 year old evacuee in the locker room of the Astrodome while Condi watches on and recites passages from the satanic bible. Then maybe you'll see some serious political repercussions.

Whenever I think of Bush and Blair I think of those old marionette show like Thunderbirds with Blair trooping across the stage with his strings visible!

I think you've summed it all pretty well - including them weasling their way through again.

Being completely honest with you - for years I thought things were as straightforward as you say. But over the last 4/5 years having got to know so many Americans so well, I've realised that not all Americans are the same.

Politics, values, religion, etc, etc -- the country's spilt pretty evenly down the middle from what I've learned. Thank goodness, there are millions of decent US citizens - just as there are 'undesirables'.

Unfortunately, like in most other countries [including my own] the nasties have wrested control. Bush, in my view, epitomises the nastiest of the nasties.

Right about having their strings pulled - all of them, including GWB. Some say Cheney 'works' Bush - well, maybe so - but even Cheney has hs strings pulled by others.

The most awful thing is, the top puppet-masters are pretty well invisible - though we do know they're the mega-bucks bunch.

That's a blast from the past, eh? HMV - heh - I remember the little dog, well.

Let's hope we don't need any logo for the Bliar - let's hope he won't be staying around long enough to need one.

lukery, sorry about the cricket, mate.

But, we did wait long enough, didn't we? What was it - 17 or 18 years since we last won/held the ashes?

As for Howard - I wouldn't give him the time of day - let alone lessons in anything.

So true, people do know what they saw.

Unfortunately [and all the pols know this only too well] the average vote has a very short memory. But I hope they remember this last compassionate conservative 'cock-up' for a long, long time.

Richard, I only just saw this post today. I can't believe the gall of Bush -- but I think you're right, that it does show how desperate he and his crowd are. That, plus the fact that they're "taking responsibility" all over the place [spin spin spin!] while simultaneously shrieking that nobody should play the "blame game" while they blame everyone else in the country but themselves. They're so disgusting.

Anyway, thanks for pointing this out!

Hi Phyl,

You're welcome - and good to see you around again, btw.
