George Bush, Tony Blair And Bill Clinton: Aren't They All Just Birds Of A Feather ?
Someone once said that one "can't be all things to all men."
Sadly, that said someone obviously gave professional politicians a pass on this particular pronouncement; professional politicians of all colours/stripes and of all nationalities.
And This Old Brit believes that Bill Clinton, Tony Blair and George W. Bush just about beat the bloody band when it comes to being better than most at mutual back-scratching -- as well as some serious and unashamed back-stabbing, whenever such need should arise.
The Bush-Blair picture (top left), is just one of many taken over the last few years. The other, of Blair and Clinton, was taken much more recently; to be precise, at Britain's ( just ended), 2006 Labour Party Conference. See below.
Damn. Does that seem as sickening to you as it does to us?
Tony Blair has no need for the Tardis or some other fancy time-travel machine to see his future when he has Bill Clinton.
And there's more.
Former President Clinton - he may keep the title but that word "former" now invariably precedes it - stood before the Labour conference to offer some gentle, brotherly advice on how the party should remain the "agents for change" to keep power.
Then there's this.
He was also there to offer some warm words of praise and admiration for his friend Tony Blair.
So Tony's a big buddy of Bill, eh? Just as he is of Bush, eh?
Even though Bill Clinton and George Bush (son of one of Bill's bestest golf-buddies), pretend to be in permanent, personal and political party opposition?
Phew. Please pass us the puke pail -- pronto.
And can you credit this -- without becoming befuddled by complete confusion?
Just look at the US where, he (Bill Clinton), said, so many of the economic advances made under his watch were being undone by his successor George Bush's Republican administration.
Bill (big-dog) Clinton stands on a stage right alongside his big buddy Tony (B-liar) Blair as he simultaneously slags off Blair's other big buddy, George Bush -- and we're expected to see nothing wrong in it?
So, we're supposed to (ever so silently), swallow such shameful shit?
We're supposed to show no sodding surprise?
We're supposed not to be shocked?
We're supposed to simply shut up?
We're supposed to show yet again that we really are all as stupid as we're supposed to be?
Well, This Old Brit is one who bloody well won't do any of the above.
What a shower of self serving, incestuous shits, these perverse pro-pol-sobs are.
What a bare-faced bunch of brazen, birds-of-a-feather.
What a double talking, trio of tossers.
Awrh, enough already.
Just back to blogging after an absolutely super sunshine break -- but already we're rudely reminded of the sort of serially, served-up shite that convinced us it was time to cop-out of it all for a while in the first place,
